It is quite possible that you are friends with this really pretty girl or this really smart girl and wondering why she isn’t dating someone, or thinking of starting a family. Although this person in question may shrug it off as a joke, it does have more deep-rooted causes than it seems.
The number of women that do not want to be in a relationship has been on the rise. As much as 50.2% of all Americans are not partnered, which in numbers, is about 124.6 million individuals. It should also be no surprise that there are less married ladies than there are single ladies in the U.S.
Well, we have found the reasons why many women stay single and we are giving them to you.
Women of the 21st Century are Independent
We do not live in the Stone Age where women were seen as caretakers of children and unpaid house slaves. Women all around the world have been fighting hard for equal rights and representation. Hence, an increasing number of women have secure jobs and financial independence from oppressive men. It is not a necessity to beg to men for things or getting things done anymore.
Women Have More Consideration For Freedom As Well As Free Time
As stated earlier, we do not live in the dark ages anymore. Hence, it is only obvious that women have the liberty to do other things than just tend to a family and an overgrown man-child. Everyone deserves freedom and women are now choosing their own paths towards betterment.
Women Have Better Emotional Stability
It is due to the systematized patriarchy that a lot of women are forced to grow up sooner than men. Women still do not completely enjoy the privilege that is given to their male counterparts which must never be confused or interchanged with opportunity. Hence, women tend to have a more mature outlook and understanding of the world.
Modern Women Are Not Bound By Traditional Relationships
It is 2019 and the world has come a long way from LGBTQ exclusion to acceptance as well as grown a better understanding of non-traditional relationships. The things that our archaic ancestors and our bigoted modern counterpart’s judge people for are not significant matters anymore. We live in a freer world and everyone’s decisions are much better respected now.
Women of the 21st Century Have Better Standards
Earning your own hard earned money, working hard for that University degree or degrees, making sure you eat healthily and encouraging personal development is no cakewalk. Hence, it goes without saying that men who are unmotivated and not ambitious are just not good enough. Unless there is a definite scope for growth, there is no point dating. It is much easier to really take care of oneself than drag a rock along.
Men Have Very Fragile Egos
When men come across smart, gorgeous, and independent women, they’re usually scared of rejection when it comes to taking the first step. Not to forget all the slut-shaming and name-calling a lot of men do when it comes to rejection. It makes women wary about dating.
Fairytales Are Utter Non-sense and Rightly So
Fairytales, where the prince charming comes on a horse to kiss the fair maiden and rescue the damsel in distress, are rightly acknowledged and discredited for the toxic stereotypes they promote. That is why women do not expect their prince to come and sweep them off their feet. Women set out to get things in life on their own. The world has changed for the better and the ones living in the past are failures.
