Old maids often choose lifestyles that promote the development of psychological disorders such as sexual neuroses and anorexia, and many exhibit symptoms of narcissism. Choosing to live and breathe their careers round the clock leaves many old maids with little time to learn how to interact with men and develop relationships. This book examines the psychological differences between married women and old maids and how these differences influence their behavior, and explains why old maids are prone to develop specific types of delusions about men.
This book features hard-hitting critical analyses of old maids by male and female psychologists and commentators, and includes a chapter about the similarities and differences between old maids and old bachelors.
