11 Ways the Struggle is SO Real for Single Women

single-women-strugglesIt’s been a while since I’ve been in one of those relationship things. You know, that thing where you have a guy who adores you, who you hang out with all the time, and with whom you have consistent (good) sex? I wouldn’t say it’s changed me for the worse (in fact, I’ve learned a lot about myself, what I want and what I definitely don’t), but being a single gal in NYC for the past three years has made me develop a few slightly irrational fears.

  1. Could be worse. Be male, sixty, look 50 or less, a touch slim, have energy like 40 or less. Invisible. And not a drinker. No wingman. Content making friends from sports, work. Some day, a woman I strike up a conversation with will want to know more. and spend time with me. I am not one of instant charm and immediate attraction. But with time, people always come to like me.

    Patience, Linds. A great life will lead to a great guy. When you see those blue eyes on the street, give the guy a compliment. Give him a reason to say something to you. Even if only, “Thank You”. Find the real you. Be her, always. Don’t be afraid to be dateless at a wedding. Guys dream about meeting a single gorgeous woman at a wedding. And you a Southern Belle.

    Get hobbies that allow more relaxed social interaction. Use those Saturdays. Can’t talk much ON a trapeze.
    Take a weekend to Southern California and escape New York winter/cold weather.

    Have you tried MeetUps yet ? Thousands of group activities in every locale in the country. Lots of activity ideas.
