Now at MSN.com: Single & Happy

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 9:13 am

Here is this week’s installment of Ask Lynn, the advice column that BG’s alter-ego writes for MSN.com (powered by Match.com). This week, Lynn responds to a letter from Daria, who is quite content being single.

But if she’s happy without a partner, why write? Could she be lying?

Definitely not! But Daria needs to know that loving her independence does not preclude loving someone else; Oh, and not every guy is going to embezzle hundreds of thousands of dollars from you.

It’s a must-read. Then, when you come back here, a must-comment!


  1. Thanks for this eloquent advice. I interact daily with single women in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and more who end up opting to proactively have kids on our own (Choice Moms). Would love to have you contribute something to our website. It’s good to be able to point out that living independently — as we are quite capable of doing — is a sign of personal strength, yes, but that doesn’t mean that sharing our life with the right partner is not. It simply means we know what we do and do not want, and are more deliberate about creating and building the life we want.

  2. The most attractive potential partner is the person that does not NEED you … but WANTS to be with you anyway.

  4. Yeah i agree with #2. have your own life outside of your SO, date, etc. :)
    after i broke up with my last boyfriend several years ago i just took time to be single and happy. the next quasi realtionship didnt work out but after that i took time being single and happy instead of moping and whining. not so good!

  5. Yeah, you definitely dont want to look to needy. That will scare em aware more then anything else.
