The Smarter You Are, The More Likely You Are To Stay Single—Here’s Why

It always seems like the women who are perpetually single also happen to be pretty smart and successful. Coincidence? No way! There are definitely some good reasons behind that. Here’s why smart women are choosing to stay single for the long-term (and why you should consider doing the same).

  1. They don’t want to put up with the dating BS. Dating in the 21st century is exhausting! Dating apps, the stress of social media in relationships, the endless forms of communication are too much. For busy women, dating is often more trouble than it’s worth. Why invest all your time in someone you don’t really like and it won’t work out with? That is valuable time that could have better been spent with your gal pals or working towards your career goals.
  2. They know their worth. Smart women are confident. They know their worth and refuse to settle for less. They don’t need to be subjected to a dating world where men don’t value their hard work. Too many women accept less than what they deserve in a relationship and smart women are not having that. They know what they deserve and they want to find people to surround themselves with who can value them as well. Many men out there are intimidated by smart, beautiful women, so these women choose to surround themselves with people who are like them.
  3. They value emotional stability. Women seem to be more emotionally stable now than ever. They get that way completely on their own! They don’t need to be validated by someone else and they don’t need a relationship to help them deal with things emotionally. Women have their friends and family to give them that emotional support they need. They’re not seeking it in relationships.
  4. They’re too mature to play games. Smart women don’t have time to play games. It’s beneath them. They would much rather take all the effort into playing games and put it into their business endeavors. These women tend to have much higher standards. They don’t want to accept the childish games. They’re a huge part of the dating world right now. Instead of giving in to it, smart women would very much like to be written out of that narrative.
  5. Being in a relationship is not a top priority. Getting married and having children is not the end-all, be-all for every single woman. Plenty of women have goals in life that don’t revolve around having a family. They’re not worried about marrying in their 30s or 40s. They’re not worried about their biological clock. That’s perfectly OK! Smart women would rather focus on chasing their career goals or using their money to travel the world.
  6. They refuse to give in to the demands of society. From a very young age, girls are conditioned to believe they need a knight in shining armor to make them happy. It’s the whole fairytale romance thing. While Disney movies are starting to steer away from the idea that a woman needs a prince, the girls who grew up in the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s were not so lucky. But plenty of women have refused to give in to these demands. They know they don’t need a prince because they’re already queens! They make their own money and buy their own houses. They don’t need a man to take care of them, they can take care of themselves.
  7. They’re perfectly happy in their relationship with themselves. Plenty of women out there find peace being alone and being with themselves. They enjoy time with friends and family but find comfort in being alone. Spending time with yourself can be so soothing and fantastic for self-care. Smart women understand the value of this and don’t feel the need to have someone by their side at all times. They enjoy going to dinner or the movies solo. They aren’t bothered by the alone time. In fact, they revel in it.
  8. They value their independence. Having your independence can be such an exhilarating feeling. You can do what you want when you want without having to check in with anyone. They can travel whenever their heart desires. They can splurge on big purchases without worry. It’s a fantastic feeling to be independent. Smart gals are not so easy to give up all of that independence. Why bother? They’re perfectly happy living that independent woman life.
