    Why are so many woman single?

    Do you feel that the overbearing and continual mentioning of "woman independence" is the cause for a rise in single woman?

    Probably because so many men aren't worth our time.

    According to the U.S. Census report of 2012 there were 102 Million unmarried people over the age of 18. Women made up 53% and men 47%.
    I'm sure some of those numbers are skewed somewhat as women tend to outlive men. In fact the older a man is the more options he has with women of his own age group.
    Some women like are happy being single!
    Better career opportunities, higher incomes, better birth control methods, and the doing away of stigmas with regard to cohabitating and pre-marital sex has given today's women far more options than women in past eras.
    During the early 1900s most women's goal was to finish high school, find a man to marry and raise a family. Oftentimes those women who went to college were in hopes of finding a man who was going places or came from a "well to do" family. Home economic courses stressed the duties of wives and mothers. Some of the stuff that was deemed acceptable back then is seen as sexist and archaic today.
    Another group of women simply don't like men and don't trust them. This keeps them from completely opening up their heart. They're always on guard for any sign of mistreatment. Such people are always of the mindset of "You & Me" and not "Us & We". They're ready to breakup in a heartbeat. They're afraid of losing themselves in relationships. Lots of women HATE the whole dating process.
    Your subconscious mind will never allow you to succeed at anything you despise!
    Oftentimes both men and women (limit) their options. Everyone is entitled to have their own "preferences". However the more "must haves" a person has the more difficult it will be for them to find love. For example one says their mate has to be of a particular race depending on what that is they could be eliminating 6 billion people sight unseen!
    Some people without knowing it are "aiming out of their league".  Society has stressed so much to women (not to settle) that they often overlook men who are butchers, store clerks, mail men, mechanics, truck drivers, and so on. Although the woman herself is financially independent she still wants a man who earns as much as she does or preferably more! Anything less would be considered "settling".  Traits such as loving, loyal, considerate, faithful, and trustworthy take a backseat to good looks, money, and excitement.
    Many women have given up on men after bad experiences. The problem was with (their selection) criteria.

    Women are very fickle and picky when it comes to the men that they choose to be with. Women know what they want, they just can't seem to find it all in one man. Therefore women like to play the field like men do, while remaining single. So basically, many women are happy being single.

    I'm still single at 48 and have never been married. For me, it has nothing to do with independence, not liking men, or anything like that. I just haven't met the right guy yet. I don't want perfection because no one is perfect and I'm not looking for a guy who will meet every criteria I have in my head. All I want is a guy who will accept me and love for the person I am and not expect me to change everything about me in order to be the "bling on their arm". Honestly, every guy I've ever dated seemed to be the right one until someone "sexier" or more "girly" came along and they took off to the so-called greener pastures. Sorry about the ranting. I just wanted to give you my story about why I'm still single.

      Thank you for your honest and candid response.  I welcome ranting if it gets a different viewpoint.

    I have to say that when a woman makes up in her mind she's ready to do what it takes to start a relationship, she has to do her homework.  She reads the magazines about looks, conversation, location to name a few.  Then she does those things for attraction and go to those places to make conversation, flirts, everything that is suppose to find that mate who too is single.  So why still single?  Not the right time?  Someone sexier?  Already has a women?  Past notions abt who you are? Financial contestable?  It's fun nevertheless.
