Single, dating, and loving it! Why some women don’t need a committed relationship


Oprah recently reported that for the first time in history, there are more single women in America than married ones, 51% to be exact. Some women love their independent lifestyle while other women are working hard at finding their future husband or life partner. The stereotype of the single woman has changed dramatically over the years.

I love being single beacuse most men out there is looking for someone to take care of them so you can do bad by yourself.

After being in a 16 year marriage I’m loving the single life! I can do whatever, whenever, however I feel and don't have to answer to anyone. I have male friends that I can hang out with no strings attached. I have a “friend with benefits” that I can release with, lol. I used to think being in a relationship or being married was the best thing in the world, I've learned that it's ok to be myself enjoy who I am and should the right man come around I may even consider mariage again. right now I’m having the time of my life.

I think that some women think that they have it going on so much that they dont need a man..I hear some women say "I DONT NEED A MAN"....oh, but they need their girlfriends....I am just they opposite..I am single, I have a few things going on in my life, and I want a man..I would like to date without the lies and be straight up, and to the point about whatever. A lot of women want to be in control of the relationship and everthing else,instead of kicking back and going with the flow....

While I can agree with a woman who states that she is single and satisfied, why do youhave to be single in order to enjoy yourself. We have the incorrect perspective on what fun is. Fun isnt sleeping around with different people and hanging out all times of the night in places that you can be harmed, that is called dangerous. Being married does not involve not having fun. We need to re-consider what we consider to be fun. Second, women were designed to be married same as men. They want someone who they can be in love with and not just love. It is in the heart of a woman deep down no matter how rough and tough we seem to be loved and cared for and protected by one man.To know that we have someone who has our back and whose shoulder we can cry on. ALL women want that.Allt hat talk about having "fun" and going from man to man giving yourself away is non sense talk. deep down that is not what any woman wants. Women cant be men, we cant just sleep around and think that our emotions will not be involved because God made us full of emotion, men on the other hand, CAN. It aint right but it is what it is, but even a man, maybe later than sooner, want a woman who they can trust and settle down with and be a friend to and for. That is the truth and anyone who says different male or female is only lying to themself.

i am single by design. I love my space. I love not dealing with non sensical bull. Why should I deal with individuals who want to probe and prod whomever they want, then come home like nothing has happened. If I cannot find what I want then I will be contently single. I will enjoy my space. I am not mad, or angry. I just simply know what works for me. I won't compromise. Why should I?

After being in a 12 year marriage I’m loving the single life! I can do whatever, whenever, however I feel and don't have to answer to anyone. I have male friends that I can hang out with no strings attached. I have a “friend with benefits” that I can call on when needed, lol. I used to think being in a relationship was the best thing in the world but I've learned that it's ok to be by myself! Maybe one day I’ll settle down again but right now I’m having the time of my life!

Most men want to cheat anyway so why be bothered with the headache of wondering whether they are cheating just make sure if you dont trust them not to be intimate with them too many black women becoming the victims of AIDS due to men infidelity.

I believe that being single has its ups and downs. Having always being the one to be commited I over the last five years have discovered that the need should be to have a man but to have yourself first. Being single allows you to learn or know who you are. To figure out your wants and needs, likes and dislikes, and when the right man comes along you will not settle because you will know who you are. Not to say you don't want the companionship of a man but not just ANY man. I have friends who have a man, but are miserable because they don't want to be ALONE. But they fail to realize that they are alone anyway.
LOVE LIFE WHETHER SINGLE OR COMMITED,
