Namely, that either by choice or by circumstance the fact is that the numbers ensure, as the years go by, that there are more single women. In Spain, for example, according to recent data from INEone in every four families is one person. From this statistic it can be concluded that 53% of women and more than half of them are single or divorced. And although every woman is a scientist and science does not provide concrete reasons to explain why there are more and more single women, there are many factors that together can determine this scenario.
The number of single women has increased in recent years
“Now we tend not to get along as much as before” – reflects psychologist Sandra Escudero, “and this may be due to two social factors in favor of the fact that there are more single women, especially young people. First, that “Millennials” and Generation Z They are naturally exposed to meeting more people than the previous generation (they travel more, have mobile apps that connect them with more people…), and have difficulty pairing because they are more apt to feel dread (“fear of missing out, which translates in this sense to fear of “standing up”). and losing the opportunity to get to know someone better). On the other hand, Women in particular are no longer looking for someone to “save” them., but they want a partner who complements their single life, which is already perfect. a) yes, Feminism It played an important role because, basically, it helped us escape from social roles, romantic myths and toxic relationships‘, he concludes.

Although this is relative, “the lack of a partner removes from your routine the fact that you are aware of another person, and having to rely on them on certain occasions, argue Being forced into situations that are uncomfortable for you (such as communicating with family members you don’t communicate with). Obviously, all of the above are hypothetical cases.but they could be there,” Escudero says.
Increase your self esteem
Despite the fact that it may seem the opposite – if you’ve been single for a while, how many times have you asked yourself if it’s your fault or because people don’t like you? – The fact is that, with the development of Escudero, the fact of spending time alone, being more self-sufficient and financially responsible (you probably won’t have someone who will guarantee you that, so you tend to be more consistent with spending) “It makes you gain more self-confidence”Concludes.
become more social
According to a recent study conducted in Cornell University (New York)Being single leads you to be more social, maintaining and strengthening friendships, so, in theory, you can feel loved by more people than if you were in a relationship.
