    I'm a woman who is pretty content in life.

    I don't need a man to make my life "complete." I'm a woman on a mission to become more successful in life, travel more, live such a way I like, and I like being positive. I don't need a man to tear me down or being supported; I already have a support system. Men are just an...

    I am not the kind of girl

    who requires a man in her life. If I can't be happy with a man I will be without one.

    Men Are Nothing But Trouble

    I don't need a man, to make me happy.  I'm doing quite fine as a single woman.  I have a lot of friends who are guys.  I did fall in love with a man, when I was in college.  He seemed sweet, at first, but than he turned out to be a real jerk.  He was also...

    The Group's Name Says It All

    I'm single, happy and proud that I am. Why should women (and many men) feel that they must have a partner to be fulfilled? I no longer feel this way. I used to feel that I had to stay married or I had to find a man or my life would be wasted. What rot! Every person in this world...

    Selfishly Single

    I grew up listening to all the classic fairy tales and old-school Disney, where girls grow up to be princesses and eventually meet and marry their prince. For every girl there was a boy, for every Barbie there was a Ken (even if Mattel markets otherwise). I always wondered what...

    alcohol to me is for enjoyment purposes, not to just get wasted and forget the day. I understand and respect others who are different from me but I just steer away from them.
