As a young, professional, 20-something who has spent my adult years focused on my own career goals while fumbling parts of my personal and professional life along the way, one thing I've learned is that at some point women, and particularly career oriented women, need to be very honest about what they want both in their professional and personal lives.
The most important thing you need to understand, Susan Patton, is that we single women choose not to define our ultimate worth by our relationship status. Yes, we are single. Yes, we are spending Valentine's Day without a romantic partner (probably not crying into our takeout sushi). We may or may not feel satisfied with those things. But we are also so, so much more.
