Summary "Being single sucks! Well, that's what everyone says, anyway. In pretty much every culture, single women over the age of twenty-nine are seen as lonely, miserable, undesirable, and cat-crazy. Family members, friends, heck, even perfect strangers ask, "When are you going to get married?" After too many "how to land a spouse" guides, it's time to change the narrative on what it means to be a single woman in the twenty-first century. Single women are driving the real estate market, running Fortune 500 companies, having premarital sex, living longer, and, according to New York Magazine, are the most potent political force today, so why are we still treated like it's the 1950s? Being married is still seen as one of a woman's biggest accomplishments, second only to becoming a mother. This book turns the page on the single woman's storyline to reveal a more accurate picture of what it means to be single in the twenty-first century."--Provided by publisher.
