As a single woman, it’s easy to get caught in a web of bleak thoughts especially during a time when streaming giants display sensationalized content that push the concept that you aren’t truly “whole” until you’ve found your man. Also a woman without a boyfriend, partner or ‘lovah’ is traditionally presented as fragmentary, under-construction or incomplete that eventually leads to what we call the average Indian aunty’s climactic dialogue,"Beta you don't have anyone right now? Oho, Poor thing”. Thanks Aunty. Well, as much as the facts of being single hover around rigid stigmas of aching loneliness, they are most often far from the truth. So, if you’re single and reading this, let’s just say that this is probably the validation that you never asked for. Or did you?
Now, as a self-proclaimed (and PROUD) singleton in the 21st century, I’ve finally landed the road to celebrate the reality of being single and not fret. Embrace and not brood. A light at the end of the tunnel, if I may say so. Because I have me. With due respect to the ones committed, this one’s exclusively for the single ladies. I urge you to join me in celebrating the bright side of singlehood and why you are going to be more than just okay, girlfriend. .
