Behind the Myth: 7 Misconceptions about Single Women...

Myth #1: Single women are desperate.
Truth: When you become single, the world opens up for you again. That doesn't mean you have to date the world. But some may think that it's exactly what you want. The truth of the matter is that single women do have standards, and will not settle for whatever comes their way. So don't dump your toothless second cousin or pyromaniac college roommate on us. Available doesn't mean hopeless.

Myth #2: Single women are out to get your man.
Truth: Stop looking at us like we just had him last night! While he may be a decent guy, that doesn't mean that we're going to hit on him every chance we get. At a club, at a bar, at the beach, we're there to have some fun, not hit on every man we see. And you with the wandering eye…if you've got a girlfriend, stop acting like a pimp daddy before I poke your eye out.

Myth #3: Single women yearn to get married.
Truth: Since we're single, the next natural progression would be for us to get married. Except not. It would make more sense for a woman in a relationship to think about marriage (if they believed in that), not the single one. For starters, it would be nice to find a good man to have a meaningful relationship with, and we wouldn't settle for less (see Myth #1). Either way, not all single women want to get married. That's a big step, yo.

Myth #4: Single women are single because there's something wrong with them.
Truth: Everyone at one point in his or her life will be single. So is that to say that there is something wrong with everyone in the world? I think not. So stop looking at us like we have leprosy. One day you might find yourself single, and you wouldn't want us to point and laugh at you, right?

Myth #5: Single women envy other people's relationships.
Truth: Some couples were meant to be together from the start. When they're together, birds sing, the sun shines a little brighter, and everyone feels the love because there's so much of it coming out of their pores. Good for them. Sure, we all want that, but it's not like single women sit in their rooms at night and cut out their picture, find a photo of a happy couple, and stick their picture over the woman's face. That's just psycho. A good relationship is great, but we want to have our own magic, not other people's magic.

Myth #6: Single women live with many cats, probably as substitutes for a man.
Truth: I am allergic to cats. There you go.

Myth #7: Single women make finding a man their number one priority.
Truth: Single women have lives too. Sure, we don't have those special nights out with our boyfriends, trips with our boyfriends, or even hours of sex with our boyfriends, but we still manage to find things to do. Single women work, go to school, volunteer, party, appear in music videos, manage children's sports teams, paint, take guitar lessons, karaoke, rescue injured animals in the park, and the list goes on. Sometimes we are just too busy to remember to stick our chests out and suck our tummies in when we walk by a gentleman. So while meeting someone and connecting would be nice, it is not our number one priority. ¤ C.Ho.
