I am comfortable with myself - being single, that is. Many people (much more that I'll ever be able to count) asked me about me getting married. It hapens almost daily.. they fear I must be feeling lonely, and scared. But, the truth is: they are afraid I'll become.. the Miserable Spinster
A short lesson from history:
In the Middle Ages the word “spinster” was a compliment. A spinster was someone, usually a woman, who could spin well: a woman who could spin well was financially self-sufficient — it was one of the very few ways that mediaeval women could achieve economic independence. The word was generously applied to all women at the point of marriage as a way of saying they came into the relationship freely, from personal choice, not financial desperation.
Now it is an insult, because we fear “for” such women — and now men as well — who are probably “sociopaths.”
