I guess I wasn’t the only one who was skeptical about answering the question huh?
While she was busy laughing, I had enough time to ask myself the lingering question “Jenny, why are you still single”?
I had found my answer just right after she stopped laughing and I decided to tell her. I guess there is no harm in telling.
So I said, “Look, I will tell you why I’m still unmarried but you have to promise to tell me yours”.
I don’t want to get into a marriage financially unstable”. She gave me a knowing smile and said “At least, you’ve found someone special. As for me, I’ve not found the right one yet”.
I knew we weren’t the only single ladies at the wedding and I have a lot of single friends and even neighbours.
Many ladies are still single and unmarried today because of the following reasons:
They want to have complete freedom from all the responsibility that comes with marriage. It’s not only the guys who are afraid of commitment, some ladies are too.
Some ladies are still waiting for that special guy who would sweep them off their feet and shower them with unconditional love. Not everyone is so lucky to meet their soul mate on time.
Even though they are ready, they could be facing financial challenges or their partner isn’t financially stable at the moment.
They keep hesitating to accept a proposal from their partner because they feel they might not make good wives or maybe the man’s family won’t accept them.
6) They are too independent:
I’m not saying a lady shouldn’t be independent; I personally love independence and the ability to stand on your own. But I don’t agree with the motto some ladies chant; “I don’t need a man to be happy”.
Some independent ladies feel they are too good for a man so they keep looking for someone who would measure up to their high standards financially and socially.
Men who love them try to get close to them but instead they end up feeling intimidated and unwanted.
Sometimes, we find love in unexpected places with imperfect people.
If you’re still waiting for Prince Charming who is 6 feet tall, handsome, God-fearing and romantic with a large bank account, I advise you should start fasting and praying.
Some ladies have received countless marriage proposals but they’ve turned them all down. They are just too indecisive to make a choice.
Any man who comes to marry them is either too short ,too poor, too fat or too skinny. They find endless excuses to give to their suitors and in the end, they chase them away.
If you’ve been wondering why many ladies are getting married and others aren’t, I guess this post has answered that question.
What’s your opinion? Why do you think some girls are still single?
