Women happy to stay single, study finds
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.
