A spinster, or old maid, is an older, childless woman who has never been married. A "spinster" is not simply a "single" woman, but a woman who has not formed a human pair bond by the time she is approaching or has reached menopause and the end of her reproductive lifespan

Spinster is an attractive lady who can spin dreams of her own, have the freedom to make them true, and when this happens men often spin around her for marriage proposals. Now it depends entirely on her to accept or reject proposals. Married ladies often envy spinsters.
I am a spinster, I can spin as I like; not a married lady who has marred her life!
