Ah, the 90s. It was a simpler time when people didn’t have to worry about things like social media, cell phones and dating apps.
Being a single woman these days is exciting, but it can be a struggle too. We are juggling things like careers, friends, dating and sex. Then, of course, there’s the pressure we get from society to fit a certain mold.
With social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, women are under more scrutiny than ever before; As if we didn’t already have it hard enough.
We are bombarded with reminders of what everyone is accomplishing and maybe we just aren’t there yet.
For many of us, a good nostalgia trip watching some of our favorite films from back in the day can be the best medicine after a stressful week. These films taught us about love and life, and they helped shape us into the women we are today. They made us laugh and made us cry. There’s also a good chance they even gave us our first crush too.
Yeah, looking at you, Jack Dawson.
When we are feeling a bunch of emotions, whether good or bad, sometimes the best way of expressing ourselves can be through quotes. They can be quotes about love, friendship quotes, depression, frustration, or even funny quotes.
Films that defined our youth are extra special, because we feel like the screenwriters understood us. Not only are they saying what we want to express to the world, but they also take us back to a happier time.
For the single women out there, it’s easy to feel like the world just doesn’t get us. Maybe our parents are questioning our career choices, or that guy we slept with is probably, in fact, an idiot. Sometimes we could use a good reminder of how strong we are and that we are not alone.
So look to these nostalgic 90s movie quotes for the single woman for comfort, maybe some laughs, and a little reminder that you’re lovely just the way you are — whether or not you’re in a relationship.
