The female titles Mrs, Miss, Ms: Paula Coston reclaims the best (but might surprise you with her choice)

Not going to talk about autumn in England. For a woman childless not of her own volition, too much fruitfulness about. I'm going to talk about women's titles - known as 'honorifics' - instead. ...more

Our Society and the Single Woman

I honestly did not realise how the general society see single and successful women. Honestly I didn’t, no not at all......no I don’t have a partner / boyfriend or husband and no I don’t have any children either!

I'm 44, Single, and Happy (Believe It or Not)!

I am a 44-year-old woman and I’m single. Never been married. No kids. Living life solo. I don’t say this to elicit pity and I also don’t wear it as some sort of badge of honor. I’m just stating a fact. It is a reality that many people live with daily. I stress the word live because that is what many of us are doing -– living.

So…. ...more

Sleeping with the Enemy

The road of dating is filled with fun, so much fun as you know..The whole path of ‘wooing’ and being ‘wooed’ , as colloquial as I can possibly be , is equally pleasing for men and women Real men who are onto something, enjoy the process.Who doesn’t want to discover something new, fresh and of good value? And real women also like to take their time to discover what they’re getting into. After all, ‘hooking’ up with someone these days goes way beyond a brief hanky panky between the sheets moments. Which means WiseGirls usually take their time in making big decisions....more

The Ups and Downs of Dating Younger Men

Yes, they’re attractive, full of life and well, give me something more to laugh about and learn but the good fortune of dating a relatively younger guy is, how do I put this for you to understand, requiring me to develop new set of skills if the hope that two will eventually become one will ever come to pass.   Continue To Read >>...more
