Liz Tuccillo goes around the world to see what single life is like in other countries.

Thanks to all of those romantic comedies and Disney films, most of us have some pretty unrealistic expectations about love. Whether you're a hopeless romantic or not, you've probably come across the typical Prince Charming movie at a certain point in your life. This is especially true for American society.

It goes a little like this: Boy meets girl; they're complete opposites. Girl and boy fall in love, fight and -after a long break - eventually get married. The end.

Did we hit the nail on the mark?

Even though there's nothing wrong with wanting to find love, the problem is that not everyone feels the same. In fact, some people would rather be single.

That's why Sex and the City writer and co-author of He's Just Not That Into You Luz Tuccillo decided to travel around the world and find out what it REALLY means to be single in different cultures. The results?

One of the things she mentions that "the common issue is that while most women in the world are looking for love, looking for romantic love, they don’t want to settle particularly in this day and age." It's really interesting to note that most of the women she interviewed stressed that they would rather be alone than settle. Because being single holds such a negative connotation in today's age, we couldn't be more relieved that they shared this general feeling.

Ironically, the number one problem cited is the lack of quality men. Now, this isn't to say that all guys are the same. It's just that finding the right match is hard when your date doesn't share your interests or vision for the future.

If you want to find out which country she rated as the best place to be single AND fall in love, watch the video to find out and let us know what you think!
