I'm not jealous of them, but I do tend to see the good things about being single. I'm a very independent individual and my SO is on long-distance business trips regularly, so my life is virtually that of a single person sometimes, at least regarding being home alone, getting to see friends a lot and having full ownership of the remote lol

I like staying in watching movies, snuggling, or playing video games. I can't imagine not being able to just sit home and RELAX.
my feelings exactly

Is there a reason single women can’t do these things on their own?

Minus the snuggling of course.

Do you envy them?

Do you pity them?
I don't pity those who are single by choice and I truly believe there are some.

But hell no, I don't envy them either. Just by looking at this forum, no offense, slim pickings. Even the most beautiful women here are having problems dating.
I'm not going to lie, over the course of our marriage, there were men that I've met that caused me to go "damn, I wish I was single, I'm missing out"...
But at the end of the day, I have the most incredible husband that I love and he loves me and with all his flaws, he never let me down, he had seen me at my worst, on the floor, crying...saying unpleasant things and yet he stuck by me. I am truly blessed.

As a single woman, I would say maybe 65% to 70% of women who are married today, settled because they were afraid of 1) getting older and 2) of winding up alone. Stuck with a mate they tolerate when they feel they could have done better.

That doesn't sound like anything to be jealous of.

Given that the question is directed at attached women, the nature of your answer suggests otherwise.

So I'm supposed to go, "Oh boohoohoo...they have someone and I don't?" Sorry, I see too much and I know too much, and it suggests that I do otherwise. There are "prizes" and then there are "booby prizes" and some are kind of confused on what they actually have with them, get my drift?

Don’t listen to slander from people in relationships. They will try to make you feel like less of a person because you’re “alone”, but secretly they’re envious because you’re FREE. You can have sex with whoever who you want, go where you want, and not have to call a damn soul when you’re running late

This is true tho, most women settle with a guy because he's a good provider and father figure.
