Community Blog: Why Not Be Single?


I'm a happy woman who is single and enjoying her life. 

I've never married and have dated many wonderful men over the years.  However, when I was a teen my French dad said:  Cheryl, if you ever choose to marry make sure the guy is the icing on your cake."  While I've met many interesting, funny and charming men, (and some not so interesting)  none have been the icing on my cake.   I've travelled, worked in a variety of places, met amazing people, pursued many of my, while I work as a life coach I remain a little confused about one thing. 

Why is it still considered 'strange' to be a happy single woman?  Men have been single for years and no one worries about it.  What do you think is going on?
