    In another thread, a young lady said: "...I am Miss, but don't like to use that (term) because I am old and single, and people often have comments to make about that which aren't so pretty"

    I can understand that concern. However, I tend to look on the bright side of things!
    I will mention, I was single for about 20 years as an adult, (and I do realize that a man and a woman see things as singles differently).

    But what would you suggest, that this individual say as a comeback, if someone makes a snide remark to her being single?

    I usually say (and the snarky remarks do come occasionally and unfortunately) that Jesus was single and if it was good enough for Him then it's good enough for me.

    Or, It's not my fault they miss..ed me.

    In the old days, the oldest daughter remained to care for the parents as they aged. Bless them for doing that and that makes "miss" an honourable title.

    Cheers,

    Jim
