Relationships: One to Many
In college, single, and loving it!!!
Since the male population is limited to damn near ZERO on college campuses, women are subject to being single. While some complain about this absence, many are embracing this time to mingle, find themselves, and just have fun!!  A good friend of mine says she loves being single, because she has options. Sorry men, women are becoming the players! Having options and not being tied down is something that women are now embracing. Since we out number you anyway in college, and there are less of you in the pot, hell we can chose who we want and who is just our play toy for the moment. Being single now-a –days is a “commonocity” “Commonocity”, is something that has become cliche or common in all cities. This “single life” is not only at HBCU’s but PWI’s as well. According to the New York Times, “Some women at the University of Vermont, with an undergraduate body that is 55 percent female, sardonically refer to their college town,…., as “Girlington.”Many college women are hanging with girlfriends instead of boyfriends. The population of male undergraduates is even smaller when you looked at it as a dating pool. “Out of 40 percent, there are maybe 20 percent that we would consider, and out of those 20, 10 have girlfriends, so all the girls are fighting over that other 10 percent, who more than likely are dogs anyway. Now I spent Valentine’s Day 2010 with a room full of single, college women. We had a great time laughing, talking and just enjoying “girl time”. Not saying it’s always a good thing being single, but I was and I loved the single life while it lasted. Once we start loving ourselves, and excepting being YOUNG, FABULOUS, AND SINGLE, then and only then will we be able to include the opposite sex!!!
