I completely and totally disagree with you that I don’t show more examples of powerful single women. I am a powerful single woman, this blog is directly correlating to the person I am, mind you it wasn’t always like that, but it is now. Just because I hold onto the idea that I have a partner (somewhere) to share my life with, and I have no problem writing about it, doesn’t mean that I am any less of a powerful single woman.
I never have said that I have to marry someone. I have never even insinuated that my young female followers should have the same ideals as me. If anything, with my advice I always focus on the idea of self improvement. Always.
There is nothing old-fashioned or silly about knowing that I have a partner in life and love, it just so happens it is a man. If I were a lesbian, I would believe it was a woman. There is nothing old fashioned about love. Nothing old fashioned about waiting for it, or knowing it will happen someday.
My opinion is that women or men who settle into a sub-par relationship because of loneliness is something that is tragically sad, and the opposite of being a powerful strong single human.
Just because women are supposed to be independent doesn’t mean they have to sacrifice the ideas of love, romance, marriage and family. If anything, powerful woman can stand alone or be part of a marriage.
By reserving the right to wait for a love match, and wait past my own career and financial independence until I even consider a family and yet still hold onto those ideas, I am a powerful single woman.

My darling. My sweet. My long lovely.
