    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...

    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.
