It's time again for another Connie and Fish Listener List!  Last week we did the Listener's Guide To Happiness, and today we have listeners answers to a very interesting question:  "Why are more women single?"

So here are the responses from listeners, spelling errors and all!

  • A lot of women nowadays don’t depend on a man and a lot of women nowadays don’t want children
  • Woman are being raised to be very independent
  • More women than men
  • Because men need someone to take care of them and women don't
  • Men don't know how to be men any more. That's why they are single.
  • Career-oriented women versus homemakers and possibly more women around then men
  • I feel like woman are more picky with who they date because they are more honest with what they want and how they feel.
  • Women are much more successful and make enough money to be on their own they don't need a man for that
  • Women don't put up with as much, independence allows for options now.
  • Because most men are pretty shallow there are few and far between that don't care about looks
  • Women these days have higher expectations of men and they may be slightly unreasonable expectations
  • Woman are more single than men bc of their career success and independence and men feel they are not needed nor wanted. Men are also lazy about dating. I saw it on the news the other day 😂
  • Women are single because men are trash.
  • I think because many some have been through so many heartbreaks that they are just done ( more teens)
  • Women are just more independent
  • People are wanting to get married later in life. But for a woman in the dating world, the pickings are pretty slim for a “good guy”.
  • I would say that younger men are definitely more shallow than older men. Especially men in their 20s, they don’t typically look at character as much as they do a woman’s outward appearance
  • A lot of women don't want to work and a man is not willing to marry a woman that doesn't want to work
  • Maybe there are more women then men now?
  • It seems like there are no good guys left.
  • I think it’s more socially acceptable to be single than it used to be
  • Because they play video games until they are 30 and live at their parents house
  • Man buns and skinny jeans!
  • There can only be 2 possibilities. Either their are more gay men in relationship or there are more women than men
  • Going to school and settling into careers is more of a priority and norm. They are even starting to have kids later also
  • Women are single because being unfaithful is more common. Both men and women cheat so often
  • I am a woman and and I agree with Steve these days women wants the storybook romance that just doesn’t exist. Your Prince Charming probably won’t be riding in on the Whitehorse people.
  • In today's world, woman carry most of the load. We work full time along side males. Then we do most of the house work and carry all the mental load. In some cases, it's literally just easier to be single.
  • Women don’t feel as if they have to be in a relationship because the social standards have changed
  • More women are single, Gay men are too horny to be single. Well lesbians tend to look for long term status
  • Because women are afraid to be themselves in front of men.
  • I think as a whole we’re getting more selfish as a culture...and being in a relationship requires being less selfish...hence more people single?
  • Women are taking over. Men today act like a bunch of dweebs. A man-bun? Come on!! Got to act like a man b4 a woman will look yr way.
  • We know that a higher % of the population are women. But supposing that it were equal. Is this survey saying there are more male gay couples than women? Otherwise The Who are the men dating to not be single?
  • they are too afraid to get heartbroken
  • Women may establish multiple casual relationships and consider it single because it isn't permanent while men consider casual attachment not being single.
  • I was told I'm single cause I have a bad attitude
  • The reason more women are single than men is that Chivalry is dead. With the technology and social media world men don’t know the right way to treat women. Swiping right is not the way to ask out a girl. Women still want to be approached and asked out the old fashion way and treated with respect.
  • Because the older a woman gets the harder it is for a woman to find a man who wants a relationship with an older woman.
  • I’m single because I choose to be. I have two young kids who need all of my attention
  • Some kids are raised with divorced parents and they see that and they figure they don’t want to do it, so why even get married in the first place?
  • There are actually a lot of factors that might be why more people are single, especially women. Some of these might include independence, sexual preference, sexual identification, as well as women having more say into relationships than before.
  • Women are getting established in their careers before they get married and have kids. But once they get established, they realize they can do it on their own. Marriage is more of a Individual decision than a societal norm.
  • Because they don't want to get divorced again I've been married got divorced I don't want to go through a divorce again therefore I'm not going to get married again
  • Because men are too needy!
  • I'm telling you... its not about women and their careers. Men stopped being men.
  • Both people need to give 100% ALL the time, and take turns "wearing the pants". I've been married 8 years, married at 20, kids at 23. Best stupid decision I've ever Made! Thank God he was my soulmate because I was not mature enough to make that kind of decision.
  • Its because americans are selfish
  • It's easier for an older successful man to find a woman than for an older successful woman to find a man.
  • I was married for 12 years and am divorced and my ex really kind of screwed me up because he was so controlling.. Because I’ve been dating my current boyfriend for nearly 3 years but we are broken up 1 million times and half of it is because the minute I feel like he’s interjecting too much or trying to tet
  • I am a single mom, 30 from gr. I agree about social media, people don't know how to talk and communicate, I don't want to deal with a man w kids and their usual crazy kids mom, and I want to focus on my job and buy a house for 2yrs before I think of meeting and making a relationship w someone
  • Promiscuity is so prevalent nowadays and it's almost glorified. Society does not Embrace loyalty and commitment. It's so easy to have an affair just ask my ex-husband. I think there's a lot of trust issues in the world today because of that and people just don't want to deal with it. They'd rather be single or live with someone and it's easier when things go bad to split up rather than go through a divorce.
  • Tell How to raise my children I get very upset and there’s a lot of times where I don’t want to deal with anybody else but me and my kids I don’t want his opinion sometimes I don’t want anybody telling me if they feel I’m not doing things right I just I’m really really want to be alone even though I love him very much
  • More women are single than men because men look and treat women these days like an object of lust and women want something real With commitment and consistency
  • Humans are very unnatural at this point and for the last 100 to 50 years even morso but as being natural grows popularity we are moving back to the Way things should be women are designed to be the gatekeepers they are designed to be single and shoes as they please who they be with as the world gets less dominated by the man women get more choice in their lives Which encourages them to be single the way things should be love is not possession Love is when you both truly want the best for each other as they see fit
  • Ladies are tired of dealing with boys.. Not men.
  • I am so glad I had my daughter early (21). We can do so much together now that I am in my 40s and she is 21. And she will tell you she is glad I had her early in life so she has more time with me doing adult things that I am still able and willing to do.
  • Honestly I believe it is women have such high expectations of what a man is supposed to be
  • Most women don't know how to treat there men good most are bitches.
  • My son informed me that I'm single because men don't like women that are stronger than them. He's 16.

Whoa!  Those were a lot of opinions.  Good job West Michigan!
