I’m a woman, I’m middle aged, I’m single, and I’m really happy!

The photo shows a late middle aged woman standing on a beach and staring out to sea in a contrived attempt at deep contemplation, an effort which is inevitably ruined when a brief consideration tells us that the woman is no doubt thinking about herself; her angst; her journey of self discovery. A red woolen blanket sits draped over her bony shoulders. It is meant to convey comfort and security. She needs the blanket because it’s just about the only thing that she has to warm her.

‘I don’t yearn for someone to complete me’: why more women are staying single.

It is the time of the great lack of yearning, a time foretold by the soothsayers of old who had foreseen a period when women would be barren, narcissistic, and dull. And very much alone.

Jane Mathews has been single for eight years.

“Everyone sees it as a temporary thing, like I’m in some sort of a holding pattern on my way to the sunny heights of coupledom,” she said.

But for Jane, 57, coupledom is not the end goal.

“I’m getting happier and happier living alone. And the longer I do it, the more self-sufficient I become,” she said.

Jane is among a growing number of Australian women choosing to be alone or finding themselves without a partner later in life. In Australia, one in four women between the ages of 35 and 65 is single.

The main reason that these Australian women are single is not because of the claim by the ABC that they choose to be. Their desperate attempts to prove that their real happiness is a result of their supposed self-sufficiency isn’t fooling anyone. The reason that a quarter of Australian women in that age group are single is for the simple fact that they are amongst the most god-awful women on the face of the planet.

Australian women in general are the pits of the earth. They are shrill self-absorbed harridans whose countenances would cause raging jealousy in a pack of harpies. Their voices are the sound of coarse sandpaper furiously rubbed against an empty bottle of beer which is then thrown at a brick wall. Flocks of seagulls grow quiet in the presence of these women out of grudging respect. They dress like a cross between a prostitute shopping at McDonalds and an early 20th century Antarctic explorer who is yet to get out of bed. Their opinions are many, undesirable, available and incorrect. They commit the dual sins of being both dull and boring, traits which extend to every corner of the marital home.

Frankly I’m surprised that only 25% of them are single. I would have thought that the number would be much higher.

Obviously these single women must have a lot of time on their hands. I wonder what they get up to?

Research has also shown single people tend to have greater involvement with the broader community than their married peers.

“From little things in everyday life, like a ride somewhere or help with an errand … single people are consistently there more often than married people,” Dr DePaulo said.

Single people tend to participate more in civic groups and public events, and volunteer more often in their community, she said.

No attempt to elevate the social status of single women would be complete without the obligatory denigration of married people. But this aside, it seems that the majority of these single women are interfering busybodies. The dogooders who do their best to “raise awareness” about some shitty social issue that nobody gives a rat’s arse about, or who relentlessly badger public officials until every little enjoyment that we value is banished to the nether regions of one more thing that is not allowed.

It was the spinster brigade that was responsible for prohibition. Remember that.

For Jane, the best thing about being single was the sense of total autonomy.

“You have enormous freedom being single. You can do pretty much what you like, when you like,” she said.

You do not get 10 points for guessing that all Jane does is stare at daytime television while eating Snickers bars.

Otherwise, Jane said single living had reinvigorated her friendships and overall sense of wellbeing.

“I feel really happy at the moment,” she said.

“I think the perception of a single person is someone who is missing out, they are one of society’s outliers … they won’t leave as big a mark on the world.

“The reality is that I intend to leave a very big mark on the world.”

All I can say is thank God we have gun control in Australian, [/sarcasm] as that is about the only way that she’s going to leave a mark on the world.

The reader who emailed me this link described the article as cancer. I don’t think that cancer is a perfect analogy as it is possible to recover from cancer. No Australian woman can recover from a situation described in this article. Her only real hope is to go into politics where her barren brethren await.

The media is attempting to glorify loneliness because of the sheer numbers of women who find themselves alone and desperate, a situation that they created for themselves because they listened to the very same media who kept telling them that they could have it all and that they deserved everything and that men should worship at their unwashed feet.

You’ve got to be dumb to believe that shit, but they did and now look where they are – in the process of being tricked into believing that being old and lonely is somehow empowering. It’s not, it’s just sad.


At this point you just may as well come out as a misogynist.


Podcast #85 – The last week episode.


  1. Someone

    I enjoyed the paragraph of analogies. Hilarious!

  2. Axis Sally

    “…single people tend to have greater involvement with the broader community…” Perhaps that is true–if one defines Facebook as the broader community.

  3. David Moore

    The whole thing just stinks of desperation and yoga classes.

  4. Red Pill Wisdom

    I’ve heard it said that “the story of a person’s life can serve either of two purposes: as either a good example, or as a dire warning”.
    Maybe — just maybe — this woman is being honest in that she’s happy being middle-aged and single; if so, then that IS a good thing. Better to remain single than cause another person to be miserable with you in a marriage that you truly didn’t want.
    But this entire article fairly “argues too much” and reeks of ‘the desperation of true believers’ who refuse to admit the mistake of feminism because they (like the majority of Leftists) are too stubborn, stiff-necked, and full of pride to acknowledge the mistake.
    Like Lucifer in Milton’s “Paradise Lost”, they would rather ‘reign in Hell than serve in Heaven’.

  5. So the key to happiness is to stay single for 60 years and you’ll finally learn to accept it.

    Feminism is just the best. It never stops delivering.

    • Yeah; but the good thing about feminism is that it has made it obvious to the wise and discerning man which women are completely unfit for marriage and being mothers.
      I’ve read that a good question for detecting whether a woman is a feminist (even if she denies it) is to ask her if she would take her husband’s last name if she marries; if she hesitates in the least, you know that she’s a feminist.
      Of course, a man ALWAYS has to rely on the old Red Pill Rule: “ignore what women say; instead, always watch what they do.”

  6. CBH

    And remember that there’s a subset of these old witches who were once NOT single, and they divorced or drove a husband to an early grave, and are now parasitically living on his pension, his social security, his savings, his property. The skeleton eats up all the flesh around it.

    • Adam

      I would assume this without question. If they can live in comfort in their loneliness, sorry – singledom, then there is no doubt that it is being externally supported by someone else.

  7. Pogonip

    Oops, I overlooked one demographic point. I’m not a feminist. Feminists in general seem to be pretty grouchy. Maybe the reason the women are unhappy is not that they are single, but that they are feminists?

  8. Well, nothing wrong with being single as long as you don’t bother anyone or try to ruin the lives of others and make people just as miserable as you are. That’s what lefties do. I am single, but my focus is on making money and building my net worth. Don’t care about the rest of the world. Why I’m single? Because I’m not gonna sign away my financial future to some woman. Who needs all the stress and nonsense at this age – late 30s. Congrats to all guys who have been able to marry the right woman who respects them and has some sense. But such women are hard to find these days. Right, let me get back to making money.

    • Adam

      The article in question seeks to idolize and promote loneliness. Consider carefully the distinction between that and being actually single. In other words, try using your brain.

      • Well, I’m a loner by choice. There is no good or bad in this. This is just the way I am. My energies are spent more productively in working hard, making money and getting richer than my peers. That’s the sport that keeps me engaged 24/7 – making money. Anyway.

      • Point is, people should have an obsession, a goal or an aim in life that consumes them completely and totally. When one works 14-16 hours a day as I do, they don’t get the time to think about being lonely or whatever. It is usually people with a lot of time on their hands that try to find validation in politics or false religions (feminism/global warming/#metoo/#NeverTrump etc.)

  9. I thought women and men were the same. How come she has to ask the neighbor to open the jar of pickles?
