Perhaps there was a time when Valentine’s Day was actually kind of nice.
But today you’d be hard-pressed to find even the most romantic lesbian couple muster up the enthusiasm for what is essentially a mid-winter marketing ploy.
Now its all about the single status. The freedom. The entertainment. The women.
Sexuality is fluid, and so should the rest of our lives. So here are my top reasons for why now is the best time to be a single lesbian.
Careers are cool
We’re a generation of disruptors, problem-solvers, and self-starters, all of which is made us more difficult when you have to balance work with a relationship. Being single allows us the time and freedom to pursue careers we actually want.
Travel is easier than ever
Which means you can meet other singles from literally every corner of the world. This surely increases the odds of finding your actual soul mate.
Say what you want about swipe apps and hook-up culture – they are as great or awful. Nothing wrong with having more options to meet people.
No one judges you
Similar to the point above, “settling down” isn’t the goal of life anymore. It’s becoming more common to assume people are single by choice, not circumstance.
You’re not a spinster by 22
The societal pressure on women to get married and have kids has eased significantly even since our parents’ generation. Be single longer, have fun,
and get that dream job; it’s all good.
