“It is not a race, if you change your mind at a later time, you have the option of searching for someone. There is no need to rush, if you are not ready. The men you don’t want right now, are not going to be men you will regret not giving a chance to.”
This is the most liberating thing I’ve read in a long time!

Thank you

Just last night I was struck by panick when I went out with new friends and their partners, I was anticipating the “It’s wrong to be single” comments I constantly get when people find out how long I’ve been single for.

Thanks for this article because sometimes as a person you do get affected by society’s perception about single women and get engulfed in its partriachal stance. Your article uprooted the insecurities I have regarding my choice to be single (it’s a choice but still have insecurities because of the virtually non-existant support from society).

Please keep writing, your words are inspired:)

Last night went great by the way!

Thank you for this article! It was reassuring to read! To see and know now that all those fears and threats were mere projections of the societal insecurities on you as a woman.

Even after making up my mind to leave a 15 years forced marriage with 4 kids, I still get these projections placed on me like I have no idea of things I have been through and experienced myself! I have made my decision, the endurance is over!

I was pressurized by my parents with marriage talks from the early age 16, had my first Baby before my 20th birthday with fake assurance that things would get better but they only got worse! I feel nothing. My vulnerability increased! I rather take out time to heal and recreate my life from this point than to spent the rest of it living out societal projections!

By far one of the best reads I’ve had on single-hood, marriage and societal expectations. I since lost this outdated belief.

This just may be the beginning of the real relationship bible.
