Thank you for your patience, but at last I’ve gotten my act together regarding starting this site. I really wanted the site to be called All The Single Ladies, but someone beat me to it (and they aren’t even using it! Argh!).
Anyway, as I mentioned here, the purpose of this blog is to have a place to discuss what we, single women of (largely) African origin in their late 20s, 30s or older, are dealing with. Some of us would like to have a partner one day, others see themselves unattached in the future. No matter what our future goals, one important goal should be being fabulous right now. Being single may feel like a curse, or something to be dispatched with as soon as possible for some (sometimes this is exactly how I feel), but I know deep down that until you learn to love yourself and your single status, you will not be able to live happily — as a single woman or with a significant other.
So what’s the point of this site? Well, first off, I’d like this to be as collaborative as possible, whether you share your own personal experience through the comments you leave, or entries you write. We should encourage each other, build each other up and help each other reach our goals. I think we are a unique group of ladies with a wealth of experience, and we can really use this blog to enrich our lives and the lives of others. So let’s get started with a question: Why are you interested in this initiative?
