Glamour (South Africa) - - Malibag/Write To Us -

The Fe­bru­ary is­sue has to be one of the most en­joy­able I’ve read. Be­ing a sin­gle, 25-year-old woman, I could to­tally re­late to writer and come­di­enne Corinne Fisher’s story ‘Calm down about my be­ing sin­gle, please’. So­ci­ety en­forces the no­tion that if you’re sin­gle, you must feel lonely, for­get­ting that it’s per­fectly pos­si­ble to be lonely and un­ful­filled in an in­ti­mate re­la­tion­ship, too. I es­pe­cially loved the idea that, “be­ing sin­gle isn’t bet­ter or worse than be­ing in a re­la­tion­ship. It’s just dif­fer­ent,” and I loved how she en­cour­ages women to stop mea­sur­ing their own value ac­cord­ing to whether you have a part­ner in your life or not. Let’s agree that we are all our own stan­dard. Af­ter all, you amount to you. – Tshe­go­fatso Mo­gotsi, via email
