Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, November 04, 2021

Cosmopolitan Magazine has spoken, and as always I listen: A new survey finds that most New York women classify themselves as “go-for-it girls” who are fine with casual hook-ups and no-commitment relationships.

“The go-for-it girl is certainly something we see a lot in New York, because it really resonates with who New Yorkers are,” [research firm Intelligence Group president Jane] Buckingham said. “They’re the women who really can do anything, who embrace who they are. They feel strong, confident.”

Ninety-six percent of the go-for-it girls feel they can have a fulfilling life if they don’t get married. That’s drastically different from housewife hopefuls, who mostly live in the South. Nearly half of them said their lives won’t be complete until they get hitched.

The implication, of course, is that the women who have no problem with indefinite singlehood are in better shape, self-esteem wise, than those Southern gals pining for a wedding ring. It points to an exoneration of self-centeredness over traditional mating-for-life impulses.

As a relationship free-agent myself, I’m going to have to go along with that ride. And invite the local ladies to, yes, go for it — I think I can handle it.
