Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

“Guys need attention. They need that nourishment, that little stroke of the ego that gets them by every now and then. I’ll give it to my family, I’ll give it to my work — but I will not give it to a man right now.” Preach Rihanna!

Chelsea Handler

Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It“Without single women and their impressive sense of self, we’d be without Queen Elizabeth I, Marie-Sophie Germain, Susan B. Anthony, Florence Nightingale, Jane Austen, Harper Lee, Diane Keaton, Greta Garbo, Jane Goodall and me, myself and I,” Chelsea Handler wrote in an excellent article for Time. “Being single is delightfully more than it’s cracked up to be… if you can stand the horror of your own company, that is.” Learning to love your own company is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

“The man for me is the cherry on the pie. But I’m the pie and my pie is good all by itself. Even if I don’t have a cherry.” Hell yes! This is one of my favorites.

 

Diane Keaton

Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

“I remember when I was young I honestly believed in some ridiculous way that you would find someone who would be the person you lived with until you died,”.  “I don’t think that because I’m not married it’s made my life any less. That old maid myth is garbage.” Yes!!

 

MINDY KALING

Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

 Mindy Kaling told Good Housekeeping “I don’t need marriage,” in 2015. “I don’t need anyone to take care of all my needs and desires. I can take care of them myself now.” One of the greatest lessons women should learn.

 

Taylor Swift 

Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

“Being alone is not the same as being lonely. I like to do things that glorify being alone,” “I buy a candle that smells pretty, turn down the lights and make a playlist of low-key songs. If you don’t act like you’ve been hit by the plague when you’re alone on a Friday night, and just see it as a chance to have fun by yourself, it’s not a bad day.” I have felt more alone in certain relationships than I have ever felt being single.

 

Rashida Jones

Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

“I had the full princess fantasy: the white horse, the whole being saved from my life, which is ridiculous. What do I want to be saved from? My life’s great! But it’s just this weird thing that’s been hammered into my head culturally: that’s the only way to succeed, that’s the only thing that counts for a woman. I’m happy, but the fact that I’m not married and don’t have kids— it’s taken me a long time to get to a place where I actually am OK with that, where I actually don’t feel like I’m some sort of loser.” You rock Rashida! I felt so uncomfortable being single and not having kids for so long. Now I am confident in myself and my life!

“We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child. We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. That decision is ours and ours alone,” Absolutely! Women are made to feel incomplete without a significant other and that is ridiculous.  You are always enough!

 

Stevie Nicks

Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

“Most women would not be happy being me,” “People say, ‘But you’re alone.’ But I don’t feel alone. I feel very un-alone. I feel very sparkly and excited about everything. I know women who are going, like, ‘I don’t want to grow old alone.’ And I’m like, ‘See, that doesn’t scare me.’ Because I’ll never be aloneI’ll always be surrounded by people. I’m like the crystal ball and these are all the rings of Saturn around me… My generation fought very hard for feminism, and we fought very hard to not be labeled as you had to have a husband or you had to be in a relationship, or you were somehow not a cool chick.” I don’t know about you, but I know that I will never be alone because of the amazing people in my life! Therefore, surround yourself with amazing friends and family and you will never be alone.

 

Emma Watson

Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

“It sounds like a cliché but I also learnt that you’re not going to fall for the right person until you really love yourself and feel good about how you are,” I 100% agree with this! How can you except to have a great relationship with someone if you don’t have a great relationship with yourself.

 

 

Sophia Bush 

Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

“I don’t think you can really, truly be the partner you want to be until you know on an absolute level that you are a complete person on your own. I think that’s something all women deserve to know,” Right on Sophia !

Emilia Clarke 

Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

“People keep asking me who I’m dating right now and the truth is…wait for it…no one. And that’s OK. I’m figuring out a lot of stuff right now. I think as a woman it’s in our nature to nurture someone else. Sometimes at the expense of ourselves.” Which one of us hasn’t taken care of others at the expense of ourselves? Well, it’s time we make ourselves a priority!

Eva Longoria
Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

“Some people said, “Oh. You don’t want to be alone.” And I said, “I’m not alone! I’m with myself. And myself is fabulous.”’ Yes you are!

 

Julie Delpy

Celebrity's Talk Single Life And Why They Love It

“Too many women throw themselves into romance because they’re afraid of being single, then start making compromises and losing their identity. I won’t do that,” Being single has allowed me to realize my worth. This isn’t why I will never compromise myself again!

These bad ass babes are sharing wisdom some of us spend our entire lives searching for. I wish I had women like this sharing their outlook on single life much earlier in life. Lastly, when you are doubting your single life, remember the oldest woman alive attributes her long life to staying away from men. Maybe these les sho be tau to women at a youn age!

Until next time…

 

5 Best Shows For Single Women

When looking for a good TV show, I generally like to find something that I can relate to. Until recently, besides Sex In The City there weren’t really any great shows for singles. Well that has definitely changed. These shows portray all age groups and walks of life. They bring to light the real heartfelt emotion pertaining to single women of all ages and situations. Here we go… 5 Best Shows For Single Women.

 

 

5 Best Shows For Single Women

Sex In The City – Sex In The City is a classic show for single women. I truly believe this is a timeless show that shows the struggles, the humor, and the strength of us singles. More importantly it highlights the importance of female friendship. Sex In The City delves into the lives of women between their 30’s and 50’s. Don’t forget once you finish all of the seasons, you absolutely have to watch the movies too!

5 Best Shows For Single Women

Girlfriends’s Guide to Divorce – This is a humorous heartfelt show that is fantastic for single mom’s and divorced women. That is not to say non moms and women who have not been married can’t enjoy this show. Binge worthy for sure!

5 Best Shows For Single Women

Grey’s Anatomy – Grey’s Anatomy is an addicting show that offers a constant flow of relationships that are passionate, sexy, and difficult. The real hardship of breakups, divorce, and even loss of a loved one are also a big part of the show. Grey’s Anatomy makes you laugh, cry, and realize you are not alone in the craziness of relationships and breakups/divorce.

5 Best Shows For Single Women

The Bold Type – The Bold Type is by far one of my favorite new shows. Three friends taking on the big city, new careers, and the intricacies of the dating world. The Bold Type portrays the younger generation, early to mid twenties.

5 Best Shows For Single Women

Being Mary Jane – This is an amazing show that shows a woman in her mid thirties and her dating life through forty. For all of us single women who have made bad choices in relationships, have a career that is challenging, and can be more so because we are women, and all of us who have not been married and are in our 30’s and 40’s. Being Mary Jane is emotional, funny, smart, and real.

So, Mary Jane is a news caster who always includes brilliant quotes in her shows. Check out this link for must not miss quotes from Being Mary Jane. https://bmjquotes.tumblr.com/

 

We all want to feel like we are not alone. Being single or even dating in today’s day and age can make you feel isolated and even crazy. The women in these shows let us know we are not alone. This is life. The good, the bad, and the ugly these shows share them all with us.

 

 

I use my Fire TV Stick to catch all of these great shows.

 

 

Until next time…

 

Stop Telling Me How To Be Single!

Stop Telling Me How To Be Single!

Stop Telling Me How To Be Single!

While being single is a much more popular choice today, how to be single is up for debate. Singles not only have to combat coupled people telling them how to live the single life, but more and more singles are telling others how to embrace their singledom. Not everyone is going to embrace their singledom the same way, nor should they have to. My message is simple, Stop Telling Me How To Be Single!

It is unbelievable how many people tell me how they think that I should embrace my singledom. Friends, family, and more surprisingly complete strangers. Now, this might sound hypocritical as I write on the topic of being single often. The thing is I don’t only write for my lifestyle choices, I try to represent all singles.

Singledom is not a one size fits all lifestyle. Some people enjoy being single to the point that they have no desire to date again. While others are distraught at the thought of being alone forever. Meanwhile there are many singles who are enjoying the single life, working on themselves, but still want to meet someone one day. None of these paths are wrong.

Stop Telling Me How To Be Single!

I am on many social media platforms for Fabulously Single, and I am always surprised by how many other singles are so militant in their views of “how to be single”. It is absolutely exhausting. No person should attempt to force another to feel, live, or dream in a particular way. Single also doesn’t have to equate to being angry, militant, or anti-relationship. Stop Telling Me How To Be Single!

I love my married and coupled friends and family, and do not feel the need to make fun of them, or show anger or animosity towards them. It truly saddens me how much judgement and animosity I hear in some of these singles groups pertaining to non singles. Now don’t get me wrong, there is definitely judgment coming from both sides. The judgement I see from some married women for my choice to be single isn’t something that I find acceptable either.

In the words of Wayne Dyer “When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself”. Everyone will embrace their singledom differently and none of them are wrong. Don’t judge people for how they choose to live their single lives. And most importantly, have the courage to live your life the way you want to. Let’s stop perpetuating the stereotypes of single life.

 

Until next time….

 

20 Dates For Singles To Go On Solo

20 Dates For Singles To Go On Solo

20 Dates For Singles To Go On SoloAs I sit here writing this, I am sitting at a local Starbucks, drinking my favorite Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato, on a date with myself. I wasn’t always able to take myself on dates because I was mortified of going out in public places alone. Once I decided to really dedicate myself to being single and focusing on being a better version of myself it started to get a little easier. Now I am so confident that I will walk into a 5 star restaurant with a book and demand to be sat at a table, not the bar because I am there alone.

Taking yourself on dates might be outside of your comfort zone, but once you do it, you will fall in love with it. Even though I wrote this for singles, I truly believe that even if you are in a relationship you should take yourself on solo dates. Granted when single a person will probably go on more solo dates then when in a relationship. However, it is important for everyone to spend some time with themselves.

  1. Go to a concert you have been wanting to see. It doesn’t matter if you have great seats, or even get lawn seats. Sing along, dance around, have fun!
  2. Buy yourself a new video game, go home, turn your phone off, and order delivery. Enjoy playing your new game in peace.
  3. Take your dog mans best friend to the dog park for the afternoon.
  4. Don’t have a dog? Go to a local dog shelter. Offer to walk the dogs to give them some love and exercise.
  5. A long drive. Bring your favorite playlist. Roll the windows down and feel the wind on your face. Taking a long scenic drive with some great music is extremely relaxing.
  6. Go to a beach or local park and watch the sunset. Sunsets aren’t just for couples and cliche proposals; they’re beautiful and relaxing for everybody. Get there  20 minutes before sun down. Bring a good snack, a book or journal and sit back and enjoy.
  7. Take yourself zip-lining somewhere both thrilling and beautiful.
  8. Take a class nobody would want to do with you – pottery, improv comedy, cooking, or woodworking. Immerse yourself in it.
  9. Go people watching. This is one of my favorite. Just make sure it is somewhere appropriate so you are not that creepy person. Put down the phone and grab a cup of coffee and sit back and watch. Create stories about the people passing by.
  10. An overnight getaway. Who doesn’t say they need more vacation time? There’s no reason why you can’t book yourself a romantic evening away for one, even if it’s a local hotel and all you do is order room service, take advantage of the pool and gym, and sleep in.
  11. Go for a bike ride. Ride your bike around town or find a great scenic route or trail.
  12. Get lost in a museum. Whether it’s discovering new artworks or marveling at an ancient piece of history, the experience is very personal. Go at your own pace and feel what moves you.
  13. Go to a comedy club.  Head down to your local comedy club and laugh until your ribs hurt. You won’t regret it.
  14. Go see a live show. Wicked, Les Miserables, Fiddler On The Roof, these are just a few of the shows I’ve seen and I loved them all!
  15. Go see a movie your friends wouldn’t normally go to with you. And you don’t have to share the popcorn.
  16. Lay in the grass and relax watching the clouds. Make sure to turn your phone off.
  17. Go to the planetarium.
  18. Find a local food festival and enjoy guiltless indulgent eating.
  19. Do something festive for whatever holiday is coming up (Drive around and look at Halloween decorations or Christmas lights).
  20. Sitting by a window as it’s raining outside and you are curled up with a glass of wine and a good book.

Taking yourself on solo dates will help you to fall more in love with yourself. You deserve that whether you’re in a relationship or not. I  actually believe that it’s sometimes even more important when you’re in a relationship,  so you don’t lose your own identity within the relationship. When I go on solo dates, I get to know myself better. I allow myself to experience things in a new way. So, pick one, or try them all. Go take yourself on a solo date! Above all, enjoy yourself.
