Why do women settle?


Why do women settle is strange and unclear to me; I have seen it happen countless times, and I don’t understand it.

When I was younger and in an abusive relationship, I stayed in the relationship for several years before having enough courage to stand up and say enough and walk away. So that might be why I won’t settle again in life. I did settle for the abuse during those years and have learned from my mistakes and choices.

Why do women settle, I have seen many women create a timeline for their lives, at what age they should meet a man, how long they will date before getting engaged. Will it be a long engagement or a short one. How soon she wants to have children after the wedding.

Then like everything in life, life happens. You don’t meet your perfect man in your twenties. There are no engagements or wedding bells. Now convinced, they can hear their internal clock ticking louder and louder every day. As they approach their thirties, they start looking for a man. Any man will do as long as he can provide what she is “looking” for, of course, everything materialistic.

As girls growing up, we were often told our roles as women in the world. My parents never told me how I should be as a woman; however, my teachers often told me what was expected of me as a young woman. Thank goodness times have changed, and girls are being told differently.

You don’t have to settle, and if you want to have children, you can freeze your eggs till you are ready to have children. Times have changed. Women are having children later in life now; there is no pressure to have children early in life unless you want to.

Don’t settle for someone that ticks some of the boxes, and you deserve to be happy in all aspects of your life, not just “some.” Why do women settle if they don’t have to?

I am not saying you can not have a plan or dreams; what I am saying is do not limit your choices because you think you are running out of time. You have the rest of your life ahead of you. Live your life your way.  Life is hard enough as it is, don’t put yourself in a situation that ties you down to things you don’t want, why settle for less? Don’t settle for less than what you deserve. You deserve to be happy no matter what.

Why do women settle is strange and unclear to me; I have seen it happen countless times, and I don’t understand it.
