Women happy to stay sin­gle, study finds

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

 Women pre­fer the sin­gle life to men be­cause they put the work into re­la­tion­ships, new re­search sug­gests.

Data from a sur­vey car­ried out by con­sumer an­a­lysts Mintel shows that 61 per cent of sin­gle women are happy with their re­la­tion­ship sta­tus com­pared to 49 per cent of sin­gle men.

The study showed that 75 per cent of sin­gle women have not ac­tively looked for a re­la­tion­ship in the past year, com­pared to 65 per cent of sin­gle men.

While 32 per cent of sin­gle women aged be­tween 45 and 65 were very happy alone, the same was true of just 19 per cent of men of the same age.
