Still single?  it may feel like everyone is getting hitched but, you’re not alone. And you can be just as happy if not happier. Here are some tips to help you contain the envy and feel great in the face of mass marriage.



All your friends are getting married? Deal with it by throwing the best singles-only party ever! Collect all the single friends you can, and celebrate your ‘single hood’.


Attend enough weddings as a single person and you’re bound to start being asked by people when you’re going to ‘settle’ down in life. And while the natural response to this is mild to severe cussing, the best thing to do is to smile politely and walk away. And to be able to do that, you need to practice your smile at home before you get to the wedding so you get it just right.


With all your friends getting married and getting busy with married life, you’ll probably find yourself with a lot more free time than before. Use it to exercise and work out. This way, not only do you make good use of your time, you also end up looking your fittest best for all the weddings to come!


This is not to say you dump all your married friends entirely. No. What you do need to do is go out and make some more friends to add to your list of people to hang out with. This way you’ll have single people to go out with instead of either being the only single person at the table or not being invited at all!

It’s not easy being single when all your friends are getting married. But with a little conviction, a bit of creativity and a lot of enthusiasm, you can make the best of this tricky situation. Dealing with all your friends getting married is best done with a laugh, a toast and the knowledge that you’re living a fabulous and super life! 

There are so many exceptional women who never married. Whether it is your mom, your favorite writer, artist or activist, there is no shortage of unattached women doing extraordinary things. Read their books, display their art, and let their independent spirits embolden you.

Having time to yourself allows creativity to flourish. Find out what your healthy escape is and explore it, nurture it and sustain it. Single or married, having a creative outlet helps us stay sane when life starts to feel like a pressure cooker. Who knows, the next wedding gift you give might be a gorgeous painting or ceramic made by yours truly.

It’s empowering. Everyone always focuses on the dangers of traveling as a single woman. But what about the joys? As a female traveler, a host of amazing opportunities will always present themselves. Check your fear with your luggage and be open to meeting new people and trying new things. Once you are coupled up the travel experience will never be the same, so enjoy your self-ruling sojourns while you can.

Don’t be too hard on yourself. Remember it takes a strong mind and heart to hold out for what you want. If it doesn’t feel right for you to settle down just yet, then keep on moving.
