Yes, there are some great movie couples out there, but what about the other female characters who don't get the guy? The ones who aren't perpetuating rom-com myths, but instead are paving the way for single ladies everywhere to be happy, adventurous, and honest?

During the holidays when you might be asked slightly inappropriate questions about your single status, I raise a glass to these fearless gals and share with you the lessons I've learned from both their triumphs and mistakes.
