    I'm 62 and my very long marriage ended about 3 yrs. ago. I have 2 daughters in their 20's whom I'm very close to. My marriage had a lot of problems, anger, emotional abuse, infidelity, disagreements about how to raise the kids...it got worse until it was intolerable. So I'm...

    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...

    First off: I am a 44 yr old female with 2 daughters. One is 22 in her last year of college and the other is 10 and  a honor roll student. Now I dont take all the credit for this because both of them make and are still making capable decisions and choices about who they want...

    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...

    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 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...

    Drugs and alcohol don't fix problems. They are only a temporary solution. I choose to be sober over the latter.

    It baffles me that people constantly look for someone to care for them. There comes a time where you need to learn that nobody needs to take care of you, except for you.
