Self-Partnered

adjective; compounding
​The condition of being single (not in a romantic relationship) and being satisfied with life. The need for the word “self-partnered” came from the negative connotation being “single” had for women. When women are described as single society considers them to be less happy and probably hoping to find love, so recently women have been using this new word (coined by actress Emma Watson) to classify themselves as single, but not unhappy or dissatisfied about it.
 
“Self-partnered” is a synonym for being single but is used in more positive contexts to convey happiness and a lack of dependence on romantic relationships.
Etymology : ​A compound of “self” and “partnered” (a past participle of the verb to be partnered, here used as an adjective).
