I’m Single Because …

I saw this Tumblr post where a girl made a list of the reasons why she thinks she’s single. While “I just haven’t met the right person,” is a great catch-all, I thought I’d try to dig a little deeper. Ya know, in the interest of self-awareness. Check out my “Why I’m Single” list after the jump. What would your list say? Keep reading »

10 Reasons Why It’s Awesome To Be Single During The Holidays

Being single around the holidays can get you extra seasonally depressed. Everywhere I go, I see couples choosing knickknacks together, making out in front of store windows, and drunkenly leaving parties early so they can go off and do it. Barf! Just kidding, it’s totally cute. I’ve been there and I’ve had a great time getting showered with expensive gifts from boyfriends! But something tells me I’m going to like being footloose and fancy-free this winter. After all, there are plenty of reasons to be happy that I didn’t stick with someone who wasn’t right for me just so I could cash in on a present … well, besides the fact that I’d have to shell out for a gift for him too. After the jump, what I’ve discovered about the grass being greener on the single side of the season …

Laptop Or Love: Which Would You Choose?

According to a new Match.com survey, 48 percent of singles said that finding someone special was their biggest stress during the holiday season. I’m sure this is totally accurate data considering Match.com has no vested interest in this topic. More interesting though … about 60 percent of singles said they would rather have a kiss on New Year’s Eve than a new laptop computer. What?! Seriously? I would totally take the laptop. A) I really need one and B) a kiss is so fleeting and C) the laptop will last for at least a few solid years, much longer than most relationships and certainly longer than a damn kiss. I wonder if the stats are the same for a desktop or an iPad or if those 60 percent just purchased a new laptop? [NY Post] Keep reading »

What Are Your 5 Non-Negotiables?

The New York season of “The Millionaire Matchmaker” has been a little rough to watch so far. Between Patti Stanger’s broken engagement, her emotional outbursts (mostly at the new intern), and her total lack of comprehension of the NYC dating scene, she’s been in a noticeably foul mood. However, her concept of the five non-negotiables, which she’s been pushing hard this season, is rather brilliant. She typically uses it to get douchebag dudes to stop being delusional about what kind of women will actually be willing to shack up with them, but I decided to give the exercise a whirl myself. Of course, I have that wish list that every single woman has, you know, the one with the hundreds of qualities that her dream guy will possess. I know, keep dreamin’, sister. But seriously, I do think it was a helpful exercise to pare that long-ass list down to the absolute essentials. After the jump, I and some other Frisky staffers share our five non-negotiables. Share yours in the comments. Keep reading »

Kim Kardashian Sends Mixed Messages About Being Single

“There was at time in my life where all I wanted was a relationship and I thought that was the most important thing. Is it weird that I’m now the single one? It’s definitely a change for me. I have always been the one in a relationship. I like that role, I want that best friend partnership.”

Kim Kardashian on embracing her unexpected single life. Yes, this is really a People cover story. She talks about how she jumped from one relationship to the next since she was a teen but she feels “powerful” now as a single woman. But the headline is “I Thought I’d Be Married By Now” AND the sub-headline is “I Want to Fall In Love.” My head is spinning trying to decipher all the mixed messages. How am I supposed to feel about being single? Please tell me, mass media. [People] Keep reading »

Do You Have A Single Backup Plan?

In college a group of four of my friends made a pact: In the year 2012, if we are all still single, we will forget about trying to find a mate, marry each other, move in together, and build a life. A life that would undoubtedly be filled with lots of love, laughter, and multiple screenings of the movie “School Ties.” At the time, 2012 seemed like eons away, and this pact seemed hilarious, even implausible. Only now 2012 is fast approaching. One of the members of the group is married (to one person), the other two have come out of the closet as homosexuals, and I am still single and looking. It’s not what I would have predicted back in college. But I’ve abandoned all thoughts of a backup plan. Keep reading »
