5 Reasons Why Single Women Are Way Stronger Than You Think

5 Reasons Why Single Women Are Way Stronger Than You Think

In a world where there still are gender differences, a woman that has to stand up for herself develops many skills that proves that single women are tougher than we think.

1. They have patience

“Patience is bitter, but it’s fruit is sweet.”  – Aristotle.

We are tempted to think about this old cliché of women going trough some kind of crisis because they are still single. However, the reality is very different.


They know what they want and they are pretty comfortable waiting patiently, enjoying life without despair, not wondering, just walking along the road, while the right person comes along.

Patience is a virtue that is developed according to time and through the experiences that makes us realize that all the right things come at the right the time. A mind that gets this is a mind that has been trained slowly (maybe painfully), but at this point knows that everything makes sense at the end, so there is no need to rush it.

2. They are disciplined

This new species of women are something else, they are admirable for the way they manage their time, their goals, and everything else. And it’s not just coincidence. These women have an admirable sense of discipline!


They are just amazing! Actually, what is more amazing is the fact that when they focus on something, nothing can make them change their mind. What else can be more proof of a strong mind than that. Discipline takes time and commitment to oneself. It’s not an easy road to get to that kind of level.

3. They have nerves of steel

They do not hesitate. Once they have made a up their mind, there is no turning back. They will get what they want, no matter what they have to do. You can see it in their eyes and you can hear it in their voice. You can even see it in the way they move, the way they walk, with that security that no one gets but from the passage of time and the lessons that this carries with it. At this point of their life there is nothing to lose and there is everything to gain. They know that if they loose, they will learn. They are also more than willing to pay that price. They know by the end that everything is a new a experience. Challenges are new lessons that will only nurture their wisdom. That wisdom that make them exactly what they are.

4. They are honest

Straight and clean, that´s how these women like to live – without circling around. They know where they stand and they are looking for someone who respects them for who they are, as well as respecting their goals. They do not like wasting their time or someone else’s time.


They also love being honest to themselves. If things aren’t working in some part of their lives, they do not like fooling themselves. They know that locating the problem and working on it as fast as it can be done, would be better than fooling around until the consequences get bigger.

5.They conquer their fears

Since these women are honest to themselves, they tempt to retrospect themselves. They localize their fears, analyze them, and then they work as hard as possible to conquer them. Being single by choice means wanting to rely in nobody else but yourself. They focus and fight, until they conquer that fear to get to the next challenge.

6. They stick to their guns

Right or wrong, once they have made up their mind there is no way back. They are willing to pay the price of their choices, rather than leaving it up to someone else.


We already said that they know what they want and that they are willing to pay the price, so for a high confidence, strong, and honest woman, playing on the safe side is no longer attractive. Let’s be honest, most of the time they are right, even though the whole world tells them they’re not. They have been through so many deceptions that at this point taking a risk for what they believe is not a problem at all.

7. They do not give up

If life gives them lemons, they certainly do make lemonade. Even though life is tough they will just keep moving. They know that most of the time things aren’t going to go as expected. The willingness to accept the challenge is definitely one of their most characteristic features.

These women are the real life representation of super heroes.


8. They are opinionated

At a certain point in our lives, the world is going to start questioning, “How come you’re still single?” They are going to expect you to give an answer. The simple truth is that you have decided to stay single because that is what you’ve decided. Period!

Single women do not care about any one else’s opinion because they know that in the end, the only person they must give a reason to is themselves.

9 Harsh But True Illustrations that Show Our Changed Society

Let’s face it.  We are living in a digital age, and there is absolutely no turning back. One of the biggest influences on society these days is social media. It affects us both positively and negatively. Social media was originally designed for people to share interesting facets of their lives with their friends, but it has become so much more than what it intended to be. It is now a medium for information to pass around the globe. In many cases, people first learn about current events through Twitter or Facebook before hearing about them from conventional news sources.

We also rely on technology for nearly everything we do. People these days seem as if they can’t go anywhere or do anything without their smartphones, tablets, or laptops. They need to be in constant contact with others via electronic devices.

However, there is also a downside to be too connected to social media and electronic devices. We are too dependent on them, which make us oblivious to what we are doing to ourselves. Being too connected can have a negative effect on our lives and the society as a whole. Here are 9 true illustrations that show how our society is negatively impacted because of the use of technology.

1. Facebook is eating away at your time.

Facebook is eating away your time

    How much time do you usually spend each day on Facebook or other social networking sites? Is it hindering your productivity? Do you find yourself wasting time to a point where you don’t even know where it goes? If the answer is yes, Facebook might have eaten away at your time.


    2. We’ve become “Likeaholics.”


      When you are posting something on Facebook, are you doing it just to see how many of your friends will give it the proverbial thumbs up? This illustration shows that some people are treating “Likes” on Facebook as if it was a drug they needed to inject into their bloodstreams.

      3. Our electronics have priority over our lives.


        Given a choice between your dying phone battery or you dying, which will you choose? In this case, the man in this illustration chose to charge his phone over to sustain his own life. As a society, we need to be more careful of our priorities.


        4. Families aren’t spending quality time together.

          Here is a mother making holiday cookies, but what are the kids doing? They are not making cookies with their mother. Instead, every one of them has their faces buried in their own electronic devices. Television used to be what parents use to babysit their kids. Now, it’s a tablet, phone, laptop or video game that does the job.

          5.  We’d rather record someone than help them.


            A lot is happening in this illustration. A black man is drowning and asking for help. One person has a gun pointed at him. The other person has their iPhone pointed at him and is recording the scene, but is not interested to help this man.


            6. Society is sleeping, it’s sleeping its life away.

              Time is money. After we have wasted the long period of time on social media, we are losing the most valuable currency we have – our time in this world.

              7.  Despite all the technology we have, we still want what someone else has.

                There’s an old saying that goes, “The grass is always greener on the other side.” This illustration shows that despite all that we have, we are still not satisfied with our lives.


                8. Sensationalism still sells.

                  With the information overload that exists today, the media still looks for sensationalism. Here’s a woman who feels she has something important to say, but the media only cares about her because she is naked. Would the news media still have microphones in front of her if she wasn’t standing there topless?

                  9. In the end, with all of this, we are still killing the planet.

                  gun to mother earth

                    This last illustration argues that despite all of our technological gains, we are still polluting the earth as if we have a virtual gun pointed at Mother Nature. As we build bigger cities and higher technology, how much more damages can we continue to do before putting our lives at risk?
