In 2011, the US Census Bureau reported, that percentage had dropped to 48 percent. In 2014, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 124.6 million Americans 16 years and older were single, or 50.2 percent of the population, compared with 37.4 percent of the population in 1976.
Why are you single? Are you waiting for Mr. Perfect? News flash ladies, he doesn't exist! In this day and age, a lot of women are waiting for that 'knight in shining armor' to come and save the day and until then chanting "there are no good men!" Let's think for a minute - if women are constantly bashing men and claiming to be so independent, shouldn't any man feel offended and a little useless? I was accustomed to becoming so frustrated when I was told that men need us to cheer them on, pat them on the back, encourage them, and be their support system. Those are the things that we do for our children right? Here is an issue that some women are having - WE WANT AND NEED THE SAME THINGS!
I want to share with you one of my most favorite relationship quotes.
"So many good women have dealt with the wrong man and so many good men have dealt with the wrong woman that, by the time you two finally meet, you're BOTH afraid of each other."
