To be single or not to be single, is the question for Jen Scheft. She is the bachelorette in the TV show The Bachelorette, which aired back in 2005. The show ended with some form of relationship or the other between all participants with one exception: Brad Womack. He walked away from the show singular.
Jen Schefft’s book Better Single Than Sorry is sort of an eye opener for the viewers of the show. The entire books talks on celebrity relationships and how it’s cool to be single rather than get into a bad relationship. The books is just a text version of the TV dramas. I think Jen’s point in her book is: public pressure cannot make us choose our life partner. The decision ultimately needs to be taken by us.
Otherwise Brad wouldn’t have walked away from the show single. In her book, Schefft talks about celebrities like Jennifer Anniston as well as Jessica Simpson. She rambles about how the two ladies face negative publicity from their divorces with Brad Pitt and Nick Lachey.
The message in Jen’s book is pretty simple. She speaks for her sex. She wants the women to stand up for themselves as well as for each other. Also, they need to tell the world that it’s better to be single rather than get into a bad relationship! This might not be great publicity material. But, who cares? It’s your personal life after all!
The bottom line is: ‘Better be single than sorry’ — I completely agree with this idea.
