Being a single woman can be a blessing or a curse. It's a time in a woman's life that comes with both highs and lows. Some days you hate being single and want to settle down with anything with a heartbeat and on other days, you're dancing in your living room, celebrating the single life while listening to Beyoncé's ' Single Ladies'.
Riding on the roller coaster of singlehood can make one very nauseous. If you're ready to hop off the rollercoaster of singlehood and increase your chances of meeting Mr. Right, it's about time that you examine yourself and identify what it is about yourself that could be keeping you from getting that special someone.
In order to help you out, I've prepared a list of six types of single women. Use this list to identify which woman you are. Be honest with yourselves ladies. It's for your own good!
The desperate single woman is the woman who will date anyone willing to offer her their time. She will pick up a bum off the street and call him hubby as long as he can accompany her to her best friend's wedding or to an office function. The desperate single woman has no standards.
The desperate woman tries to find the good in anybody as long as she can fit them into her life. Usually desperate single women have an insecurity or complex about themselves that can cause their confidence to decrease. This complex causes her to not be choosy when picking a mate which leads to failed relationships.
The needy woman is the single woman which requires their mate's complete undivided attention. The needy woman needs someone in order to feel validated. For the needy single woman, being single sucks. She yearns for sweet good morning texts, long six hour night conversations on the phone, and excessive attention from her love interest.
The needy woman goes out of the way for the person she cares about. The effort she puts into the relationship is usually way more than that of her love interest. The needy woman ends up smothering her love interest with affection and attention, until they run to the hills for sweet life.
The emotionally distant woman does not want anyone to get to close to her. She may have suffered some kind of trauma in her life which has scarred her heart. There's someone out there to heal her wound but she can't find them because she hasn't opened her heart to loving again. The emotionally distant single woman may find herself hurting others in the same manner that she was hurt.
Stuck in the past
The single woman that is stuck in the past can't drive forward because she's too busy looking the rearview mirror. Every person she meets doesn't compare to her ex and it's hard for her to form bonds with potential love interests. She's emotionally unavailable and like the emotionally distant single woman, she may not allow anyone into her heart.
She may date other people but she can never put one hundred percent effort into building a relationship with someone. The stuck in the past single woman will not be able to move on in her love life until she gets over her past.
The open book
The open book is the single woman who gives away too much too soon. She doesn't leave anything to the imagination. On the first date she reveals the most intimate details of her life to a potential love interest. Due to her indiscretion in what she reveals to him, he quickly loses interest in her.
The open book will open her book a too soon and let a man read and after he's signed his name, she will never hear from him again. The open book single woman is open to finding love and wants to be in a relationship but her lack of mystery and challenge leaves her stuck on the rollercoaster of singlehood.
Out of time
The out of time single woman is the woman who has no time for a relationship. She is either a career woman, single mother, traveler, etc. Her lifestyle and schedule permits her no time for love. She has more important things to worry about in her life. She is comfortable with her life and embraces the singlehood. She will wait for the right time in her life to make room for Mr. Right to step in and add value to her life.
