    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...

    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
