Did you know there are approximately 97 million baby boomers who are single? An even more startling statistic is the fact that nearly 70 percent of black women are single.
There are a number of reasons why the singles scene is growing. For one thing, the rate of marriage is down; the rate of divorce, up. Also, women tend to outlive men by an average of five to ten years. The estimated life expectancy for a man in 2010 is 75.7 years while it’s 80.8 for a woman.
