Guest Blog - January

Since no one took me up on my offer to guest blog in January, I have decided to post an interesting article just sent to me by Sarah, an NYC small group amiga. February is wide open should there be any other potential bloggers out there.

Survey: 20somethings Don't Worry About Mr. Right

NEW WOMAN: Embracing singledom as a lifestyle choice rather than a consequence, today's twentysomethings don't worry about ticking biological clocks and finding Mr. Right, according to a recent survey from JWT, an advertising agency.

Nearly two-thirds of women surveyed across nine countries agree it's not unusual for women to stay single into her 30s, and most think that a woman can feel comfortable with her singlehood for nine years longer than she could 20 years ago.

Almost one-third plan on postponing childbirth until her 30s, while more than a quarter said they have no problem raising children without a partner.

While twentysomething partyers like Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan make headlines, the everyday twentysomething considers herself more the home-loving type than the clubbing kind and more organized than impulsive.

Even though today's twentysomething is more ambitious than easygoing, she still wants a healthy balance between her career and friends.

During the summer of 2006, JWT surveyed 5,946 twentysomething females from the U.S., the U.K., China, France, Russia, Australia, Mexico, Brazil and the Netherlands.

Ahhh I almost blogged about this article, too! Great minds...

Let's come up with a good topic and mutually guest blog with each other. Kind of like O'Reilly and Colbert. Only more like O'Reilly and O'Reilly.
