The Greatest Perpetually Single Women On TV

Times are changing and women across the world no longer feel the need to explain their lifestyles to anyone. Being single used to have a pretty big stigma attached to it – but not anymore. Some of our favorite TV women of the past few decades were in and out of relationships – perpetually single for better or for worse – and we absolutely adore them for it.

Join us as we take a look at some of the most inspiring single ladies TV has to offer.

Buffy Summers

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

It’s hard out there for a slayer. For a start, you’re always fighting and there’s the whole ‘could die at any moment’ thing which doesn’t exactly help when you’re looking for a relationship. At the very beginning of the series, Buffy fell in love with the brooding vampire Angel. After that didn’t work out, it was downhill from there. Sure, she had boyfriends but it all ended in tragic heartbreak. Despite how unlucky in love Buffy was, we really didn’t care. This was a girl that oozed proud independence and we dug it.
