Men, don’t let this be you!

Being a single woman these days isn’t easy, even in the age where we have apps on our phones that make it as simple to set up a date with a potential romantic partner as it is to hail a ride or order delivery. Sometimes, ladies have to, well, settle.

Such is the crux of a tweet that’s getting a lot of attention, from both men and women alike.
