Most (70%) black women are single. It’s not uncommon, so don’t be depressed anymore about spending Valentine’s Day with the person you love most: yourself. Guess what else? According to the Office for National Statistics, fewer people than ever are choosing to get married. The number of 25 to 45-year-old women who live alone has doubled over the past two decades, with twice as many single women buying properties as single men. So, what does this mean? More and more women are choosing the single life and are doing (quite well) for themselves.
Alone does not have to mean lonely.
