It’s no secret that there are so many attractive single women in the world. People often ask, “You are so beautiful and intelligent, so why are you still single?” Some people might believe that dating is a simple numbers game; that there are way more amazing single women than there are eligible men, that women are afraid to have their heart broken and their hopes shattered, or that they’re only interested in pursuing their career goals and achieving high social status. However, none of these are true. The real reason is that many guys aren’t worth dating. Women don’t want to waste their time and energy on a guy who won’t be able to keep up with them in all aspects of life. It’s their intellectual abilities and high self-esteem that prevents women from getting into a relationship with someone just for the sake of it. So, if you wonder why a lot of intelligent and gorgeous women are single, the answers are as follows:

THEY ALREADY FEEL COMPLETED

Often, women don’t need a significant other to feel emotionally complete. They already feel fulfilled with supportive friends and a successful career, and are focused on looking for new goals and passions to pursue instead of a man. Their schedules are booked solid. Therefore, if they’re making room for a guy, he’d better bring something new and worthwhile to the table. If he’s just looking to get laid or wants to “hang out” until he figures out what he wants to do with his life, he will be weeded out pretty quickly.

WOMEN ARE BECOMING MORE EDUCATED, ACCOMPLISHED, AND INDEPENDENT

Most women are aware of their worth and won’t settle for someone who isn’t compatible with them. They are strong, ambitious, and self-sufficient, and have so much to offer a potential partner. They put in a great deal of effort into becoming accomplished in different spheres and gaining independence to improve on both a personal and professional level. They don’t wait for things to get done; they get it done themselves. If their potential partner lacks the ambition and commitment to achieve high goals, women won’t be able to stand it. If chivalry and romance are thrown out the window and guys assume they can get away with doing the bare minimum in a relationship, they can get their lazy-asses out of here.

NO B.S.

Who wants B.S.? Nobody. Most women would never allow someone to play cunning little mind games with them. They are undoubtedly familiar with the old tricks and refuse to be manipulated again. Sure, they could potentially have a relationship if they are willing to look the other way when liars and players try to pull the wool over their eyes, but why would they? They respect themselves too much to settle, simply for the sake of being in a relationship. They would much rather be single.

LOOKING FOR A HUSBAND ISN’T THE OBJECTIVE ANYMORE

We live in modern times. Women don’t need a husband to feel safe and protected. They don’t need someone to watch them while they sleep at night. They even know that they don’t need a guy to have kids. They’re not afraid to be single mothers and pave their own path to happiness. They don’t believe in these delusions anymore. However, this doesn’t mean that they are against marriage; they just don’t need to walk down the aisle to feel loved.

MANY GUYS ARE INTIMIDATED BY STRONG WOMEN.

Women are not willing to dumb themselves down or play off their goals and accomplishments as no big deal when they’ve worked their asses off to get to where they are now. Too many guys can’t handle being with a woman who refuses to sit back and be quiet. Many women are aware of their power and know what they deserve. They demand the best in every area of their lives and certainly won’t put up with dudes who either feel emasculated by that, or feel the need to try and tear women down to assuage their own bruised egos.
