7 Unfair Expectations Placed on Single Women ...

Although there’s nothing wrong with being alone, there are ridiculous expectations placed on single women.

For some reason, being in a relationship is more socially acceptable than being single.

You might love being alone, but society doesn’t care.

There are so many expectations placed on single women that you need to learn to ignore.2

1. You Should Settle down by a Certain Age

One of the biggest expectations placed on single women is that they should be married and have children by a certain age, because ‘the clock is ticking.’ However, everyone moves at their own pace.

You can always adopt if your biological clock runs out of time.

Society shouldn’t force women to get married, because they’re getting older.

No one should commit to a lifetime with another, because they feel peer pressured to do so.

Wait until you’re personally ready, no matter what the world tells you.2

You Should Want a Relationship

Being single is not too bad at all. It takes so much pressure off of you and I spend my time just learning about who I am.

#2. Yes! I've never been interested in being in a relationship; love being solo. But for some reason other people expect me to meet the one and you'd be such a great wife and I can't believe you're still single. Nope, I'm content on my own 💃

Wow I'm only fourteen and even at this age all of my friends would ask me why don't u have a boyfriend? I told them I like being single and at this age I don't really need anyone besides what if I'm just waiting for the right person? I don't get why people can't see that other girls or women just like their life alone

I actually have had some of the opposite. A lot of married people that have never spent a day alone in their life tell me it's better to be single etc. That was always harder to accept. Sometimes we are single because we haven't met someone worth being with. However, I've always been happier and better sharing my life with someone. Men don't want to grow up now days. I'm 31 and dating a man whose 38. Even he is having issues growing up. I think in general people should just be respectful of someone's desires whether it's being single or with someone. A lot of times when single yes we do place huge expectations on ourself.
