Do relationships hold you back in life? That’s what some women think. There are ladies out there who stand by the reasons why single women don’t need to date. Nobody “needs” to date. If you don’t put yourself out there on the dating scene, nothing bad would happen.
Dating isn’t a need like eating and drinking. People need water and food to survive, but they don’t need dating. Not dating for 3 weeks won’t kill ya. But if you stop eating for that long, well that’s a different story. No water? You’ll only last for about three or four days.
There are people out there who think their hunger for love will kill them— but it most certainly won’t.
There are plenty of reasons why single women don’t need to date
One of them is because they don’t have to. An anonymous AskMen reader posed the question. There are women who never want to date?
Many of them were in the 30-50 age range. That sounds about right. Some single moms only want to date after their kids are off to college— maybe.
Even if you’re a single woman and don’t have kids, you enjoy time with your friends and family. If you’ve got the itch for kids and you have nieces and nephews you can get your fix there. No dirty diapers. No sleepless nights either. We’re two for two!
Another reason why single women don’t need to date is that they don’t want to
I have a good friend who is single and wants to stay that way. She likes to spend time with her dog and make art and write. She wants to embrace the Old Crone archetype in her life. She’s cool with it and wouldn’t want it any other way. There are men who aren’t interested in dating either!
Many women are unhappy in marriages
And once they get out of a bad one, they don’t want to land in another one. Being on their own is empowering. You can take care of yourself and not have to ask your husband permission for anything. It’s kind of nice!
Women think all the good men are taken
Sure, dating can feel like a chore, especially if you’re a homebody introvert. When women believe the myths about men, it can also make you want to stay single. But there is something about the thoughts going around in your head. Most of what you tell yourself isn’t true, so you might as well show yourself something nice about yourself and the state of the world for a change.
Another reason why single women don’t need to date is that casual sex is more openly accepted than it used to be
Sure not having sex won’t kill you, but you don’t have to wait until your married or even be in a relationship to get some action. Having a one-night-stand for a woman is not hard. If you want sex, you could probably walk up to any number of men and find more than one to help you with your desires.
I’m not promising it will be any good, but you could still get yourself some easy sex if you really wanted to. And if you don’t want to go that route, you can completely satisfy your sexual desires on your own.
Not only can you satisfy yourself sexually, but you can please yourself in every way. With your friends, your career, and your passions. If you like doing you-you can do it all day and every night without even waking up the neighbors.
Lots of Love,
