“’Sex and The City’ was made to correct the myth that if you were single at a certain age, you were a leper. Its four characters are heroes to a lot of women; they run around New York, or Gotham – but they have fancy shoes instead of capes.” Michael Patrick King

Sex in the city, or in the suburbs, us girls may want to date. Have we reached the point where it is ok for a woman to be single and dating? And brace yourself, at any age?

It is a right to pursue happiness. That has been a well-established fact for many years. How about the rights of the single girls pursuing her… “options”? Can that Modern Millie fit into today’s society?

Dear Lord I hope so! In my book “A Man for Every Purpose” I explore many different dating scenarios including but not limited to having fun as a single girl. At one point in the book if feels like a dating wiriwind. Will that be judged as forward? Is dating of the sex’s the same for men as it is for women? Do woman have dating equality? Are men just ‘sowing oats’ while gals are a ‘loose’ girl? Men rascals, whilst women whores?

I thought the first man I married I would be with for the rest of my life. I was wrong, that marriage sadly vanished before my eyes. I had to learn to be single. I had to learn how to date again. The whole dating thing I thought I left behind, become a part of my reality. I understood clearly that others, (marrieds) judged me for being divorced, also known as my singlehood. That was a different layer of awful.

We should all be able to experience life as it presents itself. Love can come and go and in-between the options of dating should be ours. Freedom to date or not date should be what is right. For a married person of decades this dating idea may be foreign. But if you are part of the single and searching you may know what I mean. I don’t care what age you are if you want to date to find a mate or just a momentary companionship I say go for it! Internet dating has opened up the dating world whether we like it or not it is the way it is.

Equal rights in the workplace will (hopefully) soon be a part of our world. Equal rights for the single and searching female should also be a part of our society. Cheers to dating options, cheers to doing it your way, and always, cheers to love. Sustainable love, if one chooses, can be the ultimate end of dating.

Although I would like to say I am organized, focused and cookie-cutter, that simply would not be me. I am no different than any other woman in the world. I love to love, love hard, and, in the end, have learned to love myself above all else. So here I am, writing about the many men and the multiple purposes they have served in my life. Realizing that not one man on my roster had fulfilled every single one of my needs. Perhaps one man is not supposed to? I have compiled snippets of the men that have entered my world. In the end, they have shoved me towards my bathroom mirror, forcing me to take a better look at myself. Reflection is brilliant and the strongest guidepost into ourselves.

Working on the next book in the series “A House for Every Purpose, My Journey From Pillow to Pillow” revels a woman abandoning her home in search or her identity beyond men, motherhood, author.
