Single Women Quotes

"My parents, my husband, my brother, my sister."
I am a listening in a cafeteria at breakfast,
The women’s voices rustle, fulfill themselves
In a ritual no doubt necessary.
I glance sidelong at their moving lips
And I delight in being here on earth
For one moment, with them, here on earth,
To celebrate our tiny, tiny my-ness.

Quotes for Single Women

You should have said "I'm not married because I'm a Singleton, you smug, prematurely aging, narrow-minded morons," Shazzer ranted. "And because there's more than one bloody way to live: one in four households are single, most of the royal family are single, the nation's young men have been proved by surveys to be completely unmarriageable, and as a result there's a whole generation of single girls like me with their own incomes and homes who have lots of fun and don't need to wash anyone else's socks. We'd be as happy as sandboys if people like you didn't conspire to make us feel stupid just because you're jealous."
"Singletons!" I shouted happily. "Hurrah for the Singletons!"

-Sharon and Bridget, from Bridget Jones's Diary (1996) by Helen Fielding

Being single is getting over the illusion that there is somebody out there to complete you and taking charge of your own life.
