Single Women Are the Happiest According to the Latest Studies

No matter how you feel about it, the fact is that the number of single women is growing. It’s hard to know why they prefer staying single or if they are truly happy. Maybe it’s demographic inequality, or the modern world just doesn’t leave them any other option.

We at Bright Side decided to go deeper into this topic and found out that single women are actually the happiest, and here’s why.

It has been proven that women work harder in relationships. Of course, this is a generalization, but it shouldn’t surprise us that women put more effort into building and maintaining their relationships.

So after a certain point, they just get tired of it. Between the ages of 45 and 65, approximately 32% of women and only 19% of men were happy being single.

Yes! It is relaxing after a long relationship to just be single! Women start work only for themselves with no stress and without feeling guilty. Finally, they can go on a long trip or just start tango classes. 61% of single women in the UK say they are satisfied with their relationship status.

Love simply stops being the center of the universe. Let’s just say that they discover another kind of love, for themselves.

It also happens often that a woman gets a divorce after having children. In this case, her love is concentrated on the child and there is literally no space for a new man.

We’re sure that you also have friends who have been single for 1-3 years. The research showed that this is not rare nowadays. In 2020, about 31% of the population in the US was single, with half of them saying that they were not looking for a partner.

Yes, they also search for true love, but the longer you stay out of relationships, the more you understand that you are capable of doing everything by yourself. And there is no need to date just because you are scared to be alone.

Women wait for real, strong feelings and spend all their free time on developing themselves. And that brings them lots of joy and confidence!

Now we also know why men feel better in relationships! While women prefer to have alternative social networks, men mostly rely on a partner or a wife. So there is no surprise that women can easily solve any kind of problem by just asking someone else for help. And if a woman is single, she tends to have more friends, while men are less active in expanding their social networks.

Do you agree that being single is good? Or do you think that a woman has to have a boyfriend to feel fulfilled? Share this article with all the single ladies out there!
