In this month I know we are totally focused on couples and love stories, but it’s important to nudge your single friend with some flicks that celebrate friendship and self-love. Here is my compilation of the best single-girl movies out there.
Disney’s Frozen I know what you’re thinking. Nisey really? But yeah! This movie is about two sisters who were separated by a curse and they have to come together to save their kingdom. Love from your siblings can save you where romance can’t. If you don’t learn anything from this movie -just take in the lyrics to “Let It Go”.
Waiting to Exhale is probably one of my favorite movies and it came out when I was only one. It’s about four friends who support each other through the trials and tribulations with the men in their lives. What I love most is that you experience each emotion these women have and can relate it to your own lives. My favorite scene? All I’m going to say is “Get your shit, and get out!”
Eat Pray Love is about a married woman who realizes how unhappy her marriage is, and that her life needs to go in a different direction. After hopping out of that relationship, she hops into another. After that, she takes off on a round-the-world journey to “find herself”. What I love about this movie is how she really steps outside her comfort zone, she really took a risk just to change her life, and went on a journey for self-discovery.
She’s Gotta Have It I recommend watching the old version first and then watching the remake on Netflix. Being single can allow you to explore your sexual desires too and these Spike Lee debuts let you get a glimpse of what it’s like. It is about Nola Darling, a self-declared ‘sex-positive, polyamorous pansexual’, who is seeing three different men at the same time.
Sex and The City Aside from binge-watching the series, Sex and the City – the movies, is such a great movie for singles. Each of the girls leads a life of their own whether they’re dating, married or in a relationship. You need to see how Carrie handled probably one of the saddest moments of her life, but the ending is Big.
