Whoa, this you tube video shows the kind of behavior that gives all single women a bad name, that makes people think all we want in life is to land a man. And it gives the media yet another excuse to perpetuate this myth: note how they flag the perp’s “single” status in the news headline: 

Bold Moves Goes Wrong (Single Woman Calls 911 for Date).

I don’t think the focus should be on the woman being single either. That’s just ridicules.

“the kind of behavior that gives all single women a bad name, that makes people think all we want in life is to land a man.”

True, although many woman have given that impression also to men and society. Aside from the media, I have heard many woman say how they wanted to land a man, and in essence, that was their goal.

Doesn’t give singles, or single woman a bad name though in my opinion.

While what this woman did was totally stupid, I don’t think it’s really an example of the stereotypical desperate woman looking for a husband. I think she just thought the guy was cute and wanted to ask him out and probably thought she was doing something bold and fun. Though I agree there was no reason to put the word single in the headline. That’s the real problem here, the headline puts it into the stereotype.

I’m just wondering why she flagged her age to the 911 person. . . “I’m 45. . .” ??? That was kind of wierd… well, I guess the whole THING is wierd -CC
