Statistic of Single Women in the USA

–          44.9% women are single

–          60% of the single women have never been married

–          Our media position’s single women as being depressed

Q: What is the mission of The Single Girls Club? 

Stacii: To let all single women know that it’s ok to be happy and single. The Single Girls Club focus is NOT preparing women to be married. My goal is to change the face of what single looks like after 30 years old. To ask the important question ‘What makes you happy?‘ to redefine themselves and the journey to self-love. Single women shouldn’t have to feel like its always a race to get married and have children. Women should be able to find themselves, be happy and enjoy being single and a relationship can follow. The mission statement is always for women to beLiving, Loving, Laughing, and Learning Me!

Q: What made you start the concept of The Single Girl’s Club?

Stacii: I want to break the norm of the concept of the single woman, remove the negative stigma around women and make it an uplifting movement. Being single can be a positive things and I want to bring groups of women together to celebrate being single in a positive way. I am single and I was once depressed about it, but no longer.

Q: Why do you think women are more single than ever before? 

Stacii: Women are smart. We may date the frog but won’t marry it. Women are researchers and the internet to be honest is making it easier to research things. Women want to date longer. We are not in the era of our mother’s, grandmothers and mother’s before that to where we were expected to get married and pregnant before a certain age and time. We are more career minded and self-sufficient and we are taking care of ourselves. Because of our independence, we can choose to date men longer because they aren’t the only providers in the relationship.

Q: Do you think men in this society are also contributing to women being single longer?

Stacii: I don’t think women should give men that kind of power. I think it’s more of a trust factor with women with these men. We know the statistic that are out, divorce rates are high and infidelity and I honestly think lots of single women are conscience of that. I just think instead of blaming the men or the statistic, we should take our single status and let it help us push us into our excellence.

Q: What about the men complaining about women being too independent and having too high standards?

Stacii: The right man will be okay with a woman’s independence. Only a man who wants to control and dominate everything who is immature wouldn’t want an independent woman. The right man would embrace and woman’s independence and respect it. Also, if a woman doesn’t have standard, the man will sure have some and tell you. Men do not have a problem saying exactly what kind of woman they want and what they are looking for, women always feel guilty about this. It’s great to have standards because a man will always have some, and if she doesnt he will mold you into what he wants or find someone who has it.

Q: Any information or advice for the single woman feeling desperate and maybe ready to settle for something less than what she is looking for?

Stacii: Women shouldn’t settle. If you feel like you are settling you should probably just end it. It’s better to deal with what you don’t like, recognize it and end it now and be happy versus settling for 5-10+ years with negative emotions of sadness, depression, loneliness and resentment. Do not rationalize with a man’s issues, you shouldn’t have to settle or sacrifice your happiness to be in a relationship.

  • I don’t think single women have negative stigmas surrounding this topic but that’s just one opinion. Thanks for the great review and interview and for sharing. I live sorta near Atlanta and would love to check out the city tour.

  • Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    I have never heard of her before, but she sounds amazing. I love the idea of the single girls club.

  • Actually, I think it depends on who you talk to. I personally don’t think there is a stigma. I’m glad though that I’m not single anymore, and I wouldn’t want to rejoin the single world.

  • What a wonderful movement and a wonderful interview. I definitely felt the pressure of being single before I got married. Our lives aren’t all about finding a husband!

  • I should hope there is not a stigma but there probably is. I got married young and had children young and I know at the time there was a stigma against that. I wish women would embrace whatever their life circumstances are and learn to be themselves. The world would be a much better place!

  • MJ says:

    I remember the single life… It was lovely! Sometimes you don’t realize how much you miss and appreciate something until it’s gone but I do enjoy my married/family life too. It is harder to balance though. I think single women should embrace that and enjoy it. Don’t let anyones opinion get in the way. There are far too many people unhappy in relationships anyway. Do what’s right for you.

  • Nancy says:

    That’s a pretty big statistical number. I wouldn’t have thought nearly half of the USA women population is single. Stacii Jae sounds like a great person to be around, and so positive, teaching others to love themselves first. Right? She’s awesome and that was a great interview. 🙂

  • I’ve never heard of the Single Girl’s Club before. I do like the thought of empowering women to be women, whether they marry or not.

  • Pam says:

    I’ve never heard of the Single Girl’s Club. I definitely think it’s better to be single than be with the wrong person.

  • Theresa says:

    I don’t think there’s a stigma. I think today’s woman knows that she doesn’t have to settle, so she’s holding out for the best.

  • Debbie Denny says:

    Single women are depressed…. What. That is just stupid.

  • Chrysa says:

    I had no idea that almost 45% of women are single! This definitely sounds like something I would want to check out if I were single.

  • Rosey says:

    I liked being single. I like being married. There are def perks to both. 🙂

  • Debbie L. says:

    I don’t think that is a stigma. Women know what they want and are willing to wait.

  • Jeanine says:

    Wow. I don’t think single women have negative stigma. I didn’t when I was single I loved it and enjoyed my single time.

  • Geanine says:

    The single life, I remember it fondly. The carefree lifestyle. Despite working a full and part time job, because I had a hunger to succeed I had no one to take care of but me. Of course I love my life now with a family but I am glad I was able to experience the single life and hope my children take the time to as well.

  • Enjoying reading Staci’s answers, and I remember ‘Peaches’! I think the perception of single ladies has changed a great deal – even from when I was just starting out in the dating pool. I don’t see a negative stigma as much. In the past, I used to see some women I knew craving to get married and making insecure decisions based upon those feelings. Lately, I see women dating longer, and not settling.

  • Beth says:

    I’ve never heard of Stacii or the Single Girls Club or whatnot. I guess that’s because I don’t watch TV really (or more so we don’t get a lot of US TV here!). It was interesting reading her answers though. I’m not a big fan of being single… haven’t really been single since I was 13, haha.

  • I’ve never heard of Stacii or the Single Girls Club, but if I was single, I would totally take her advice. Love her answers. I don’t think that being single should be depressing or that women should have a negative stigma. Being single is better than being with the wrong person. I’d much rather be in a relationship than be single 🙂

  • I think there is a stigma. But the event last night sounds great. I would have loved to attend it.

  • Carly says:

    I absolutely love this idea! I live in Los Angeles, where it seems like EVERYONE is still single at 30 and it’s no big deal. My husband and I met here in our early 30s, and I actually feel like we were more equipped for a serious relationship at an older age!

  • What a great club to be apart of. This is definitely something I would have attended if I was singe.

  • Hollie says:

    I have been single almost all my life, and yes it is quite the experience! Being single should never be depressing, or a negative. We need to simply make the best of what we have in the moment.

  • Interesting post. I had never heard of the single girls club before!

  • Awesome post! This is the first time I heard of the Single Girls Club. That is wonderful :). I do not think there is a stigma in today’s times. Although I am married, I have had conversations with my single gal pals on how awesome it is for them to just pack up and travel the world, save tons of money because they are a household of 1, and many other perks. 🙂
