There’s no need for Miss Victim, be Miss VixenNovember 14th, 2007 - 10:16 am ICT by admin
‘The Naughty Girls Guide to Life’ offers a suitable reminder for women to have fun rather than revolt in their single status.
The book has advice ranging from faking sickies to coping with being dumped, and everything in between.
Although very whimsical, the book also offers positive, self-affirming messages.
“Don’t let the world be deprived of fabulous you. Being a sexy single girl is the most fun you’ll ever have. But only if you go out and enjoy it. If you go out less often than the Olympic flame then you haven’t made the most of it,” News.com.au quoted the authors, as stating.
“We all get dumped by love, life, friends, work or family . . . but there’s no need for Miss Victim, we want Miss Vixen,” they added.
Dr Karen Weiss, regional manager of Relationships Australia, said women often enjoyed being single until they were 35, when they worried about meeting someone they could start a family with.
“There are now more single people than ever - on average 30 per cent - and the number of married people is going down. Now most common are those who go in and out of de facto relationships,” Dr Weiss said.
She added books like the Naughty Girls Guide to Life “can be a boost like Sex and the City, which showed women being comfortable about being single in their 30s”.
The book comes as most Australians now spend their 20s, and a good part of their 30s unmarried.
According to the 2006 Australian Bureau of Statistics census, about 4.6 million people over 20 are single or not living with a partner or spouse.
Slightly more than half have never married, and the rest are divorced, separated, widowed or living apart from a partner.
Psychologist Evelyn Field said many women found the lack of stability of singledom a problem.
“Financially and socially it’s easier to be in a couple - it’s about coming home, being connected, being heard,” Field said.
“Some people put off life and miss out on things they want to do, but the message should be to do it anyway - go out to dinner, have a movie, travel.
“It is definitely more acceptable to be single these days, but if you are happy and enjoying life, someone will come along,” she added. (ANI)
