Sex & the Single Woman: I Do . . . Need a Date

Last night I was out to dinner with a bunch of my guy friends when two of them asked me at what age it’s awkward to go to a wedding alone.

After getting over the shock of such a deep question coming from my friends, I sat back and thought about it. At what age is it too awkward to go to a wedding alone?

I figured that first you have to determine whether it’s a family wedding or a friend’s wedding. Family weddings have the advantage of you possibly knowing more people, but also having family questioning, “Why don’t you have a boyfriend?”

I’m inclined to say it’s more awkward to go to a friend’s wedding solo, because it will be filled with people your age . . . With dates. As much as I would like to think that I am confident enough to fly solo in any situation, I doubt that’s true.

What are your wedding experiences? At what age do think you need a date at a wedding, even if it’s just a close friend?
