A reader just emailed to ask about my definition of single. I was surprised to discover that, even though I've been blogging here since March of 2008, I've never written a post on the meaning of 'single.' So in this post, I will: 1. Republish an excerpt of an interview with Jaclyn Geller, in which I asked her whether 'single' is even the right word to use 3.
A woman who shares her life with a few long-term close partners, one of whom might be a lover, but who has no marriage license, is considered "single." If she marries a man she's known for two weeks in a Las Vegas chapel she's suddenly no longer "single; " she's married - de facto, socially complete. In her excellent book, Beyond (Straight and Gay) Marriage, Nancy D.
Polikoff suggests a few different phrases: "valuing all families;" "intra-dependent." In my book I suggest reviving the term "spinster," which in England, before the onset of the modern marriage mystique, just meant a financially independent woman who supported herself by spinning - by manufacturing textiles.
With dating comes an unwritten code of behaviour, which is more commonly known as ‘Dating Etiquette’.
The internet may have revolutionised age-old rituals of courtship and created an entirely new etiquette for online dating, but just because you’re sat behind a computer, doesn’t mean you should abandon them altogether.
I myself have trouble with that term, and I don't use it anymore. It implies that any unmarried person is a fragmentary half-self awaiting completion in a spouse.
[But] for Bumble, it probably was best to take pictures that actually looked like me, since, you know, (hopefully) I’d go on some actual dates with actual guys who would meet me in person.My Three Senses of Single I think of 'single' in three different ways, which often overlap. (That's one of the reasons why same-sex marriage is pursued with such intensity.) Also, some of the people in your life might think it matters whether you are legally married. This is a much more slippery matter than the legal definition. Usually, if other people see you as coupled, you do, too. Sometimes other people think you are Jack And Jill but you see yourself as Jack. Maybe there were two people out to fetch a pail of water, but you climbed that damned hill yourself! Here's an excerpt from our conversation: Bella: I think I first learned that "spinster" once had a positive meaning from reading Here Comes the Bride. Is that the word you think we should use to refer to single women?You can be legally single, socially single, or personally single. Maybe you have been part of a committed couple for decades, but unless you made your union official and legal, you still count as legally single. In our article, "The unrecognized stereotyping and discrimination against singles," Wendy Morris and I noted that "impressions of seriousness are shaped by factors such as the length of time the twosome has been together, the regularity and exclusivity with which they see each other, whether they seem to intend to stay together, and whether they live together." Whether other people see you as part of a couple (your social status) can be even more significant to your everyday life, and how other people treat you, than your legal status. Jaclyn: Bella, I respect your work tremendously, and I know you use the word "single," as many people do. Up until recently, I was 80 pounds overweight, and very insecure about my appearance and lack of experience. When it comes to photos, finding my best angle — even if the result doesn’t look exactly like me — has always made me feel confident. First thing you have to understand is that my dating life had been limited.
