Do you remember the "Sex and the City" episode where Carrie's Manolo Blahniks get stolen at her friend, Kira's child's birthday party? When Carrie tries to ask Kira to reimburse her for the stolen shoes, Kira shames her for spending $485 on a pair of shoes, and shames her for the choices she's made as a single woman. In protest, Carrie announces she's getting married to herself and throws herself a wedding shower. She sends the registry to Kira who then buys her the Manolo Blahniks that were stolen from her house.
Carrie might have been ahead of her time, as nowadays so many women are celebrating their choice to be single. They are "self-dating" -- forfeiting dating, hookups and relationships and choosing instead to fly solo. As the saying goes, "If you're not in a relationship with yourself, then you're not going to be in the right relationship with others." Women are starting to learn how to get to know themselves and enjoy their own company. This is a great article about one such woman, who after dating herself for a while, discovered how empowering it is. http://bit.ly/1Obl0vl
