Good article in the New York Times, written by a woman who had been single a long time before meeting her husband. She struggled off and on thinking that there was something wrong with her that she'd been single so long. But she concludes that's not the case: she (and her other single friends) just hadn't met the right guy.

I love this. I've been saying this for a long time (too long, actually).

I agree. We all have things "wrong" with us. It's just finding a guy who accepts our "wrong" for what it is. For some women, that's easy. For others, not so much.

What a great article. While I think we all have things we need to work on and change about ourselves I don't think that makes us completely unloveable or undateable. It's just a matter of finding the right person that wants to work and change with us.

You can actually change your mindset about that if you want to.

I have a friend who if she is not with a man she freaks out.. So I believe she is defining herself based on men..

I'm thinking you meant this for Musiclover?

I don't consider most of what you listed as minor things.
