An unmarried man is called a `bachelor'. What is an unmarried woman called?
A woman who is young and still single is called a `bachelorette'. In fact, there was a reality show in the United States by that name. You will not find this word in most dictionaries. The word `spinster' is used to refer to a middle aged or an old woman who has never married. Unlike `spinster', `bachelorette' does not have a negative connotation.
