Marie Claire's 12 categories of single women

Like most girls I indulge in reading magazines. Lots of magazines! I enjoy reading what their writers have to say about beauty, fashion, relationships, events etc. I was on Marie Claire's website and came across an article titled "The 12 Categories of Single Women". Naturally I was immediately intrigued. Here is part of it, which single woman are you? 

The Soul-Mate Seeker: Someone who is doing everything she can to find The One.

The Phoenix: A woman who recently had a painful breakup and is doing everything she can to rise from the ashes in better shape.

The Organic: She prefers to leave things up to destiny and live her own life rather than hunting for men in any methodical or calculated way.

The Princess-in-Waiting: She is waiting to be rescued by a prince (who sure is taking his royal time).

The Late Bloomer: The rest of her life is on hold while she waits for her future husband to appear.

The Free Spirit: She worries that she can only have one or the other — her independence or a committed relationship. (And she thinks the former is better.)

The Wedding Wisher: She suddenly finds herself fantasizing about marriage after a lifetime of not caring about it.

The Town Rebel: She no longer aspires to live the cookie-cutter lifestyle of everyone else in her community, though she once used to.

The Ritual Re-inventor: A woman who wants to get hitched but also feels very strongly about having an unconventional marriage (right down to the wedding ceremony).

The Someday-Mom: She would like to have babies someday, but wishes she didn't feel so much biological pressure to figure it out fast.

The Slow & Steady: A woman who hopes to marry when the time is right. Meanwhile, she does her best not to cave to the massive pressure she feels from friends, family, and society.

The Trailblazer: A woman who knows married life is not for her, so she's trying to break a new kind of path to happiness.
Now that you've read through them do you know which you are? I think I'm either The Organic because I do feel that when something is meant to be it will just be, so that kind of makes sense, but then I see The Princess-in-Waiting description and maybe to an extent I fit into that category too. Or there is The Free Spirit, in which I also think I fit into, because I am a free spirit and do value my independence. Dating in general these days I swear is tricky and confusing in itself but I'm going to leave that for another blog post. I plan to write about signs to watch out for to know he/she isn't the one. To hopefully shed some light to people so they don't waste their time with the wrong person. 

All I know is that I aspire to have as amazing of a relationship with my significant other as Olivia and Brian. These two are so in love and adorable its LITERALLY not fair. Love you guys :).
