5 Reasons Why Millennial Women Are Waiting To Commit

If you haven’t noticed, the marrying age has gotten higher and higher with each generation. Heck, my grandparents were married at 19! I, on the other hand am 31 years old, single and happy as a clam. Why? Because I’m a millennial woman, and dating in this generation allows for opportunity. What could be better than that?! It’s time we recognize what we do have rather than what we don’t. So, what’s making us women stay single a little longer? Well, let me tell me you…

1. We’re Busy Starting Our Careers!

Times have changed fellas. There’s a new boss in town…the #girlboss! Ladies are now launching their careers and empowering others to do so as well. I’m proud to say that I’m also part of this millennial girl gang. We’re strong, we’re successful and we look fabulous doing it! You go girl!

2. We Have Our OWN money!

Sugar daddy? What’s that? Millennial women are taking the next generation by storm with successful careers and money in their pockets. Sugar daddies, step aside. You’re deep wallets are no longer needed at this table. We’re picking up our own tabs and showing you what it really means to wine and dine.

3. We Actually Enjoy Being Single

I know. I know. It’s not often that you hear a woman say those words, but it’s true! Being single can be liberating and empowering! You’re pretty much free to do whatever you want, whenever you want. Make “single” a perk, not a punishment.

4. We’re Focusing On Ourselves.

You have to admit, when you’re single, you have a little more “free time” than you would if you were dating. And that’s okay. In fact, it’s more than okay; it’s a perfect opportunity to be SELFISH! Yes, I said it. Be SELFISH. Trust me, when you start focusing on our own personal happiness, your peers presence will be contagious!

5. We haven’t met “the right person.

I know what you’re thinking…”That’s just an excuse single people say.” Well maybe, but in this case, millennial women are sticking it out for the right reasons. We’re focusing more on our value then our biological clocks. We know what we bring to the table, and trust me we’re not afraid to eat alone.
