    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...

    Men Are Nothing But Trouble

    Another Reason To Be Forever Single

    Long story short, for four years, I been talking to this man. He wanted to see me (he lives out of state) and I was ready to see him but then basically just told me that I am NOT independent because I live with my parents. And he also told me that I am too much drama. He was the...

    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...

    Men Are Aliens From Another Planet

    I never had a boyfriend and I don't truly have the desire for one. I had too many experiences with men from bullying and when I was in my early 20s. This one guy only wanted to have sex with me and treated me like a total retard and guy #2 kept asking me for money and was...
