|This somewhat negative term arose because twisting fibers into thread was mainly a woman's job|
|Spinster is a term used to refer to an unmarried woman who is older than what is perceived as the prime age range during which women should marry. It could also indicate that a woman was considered unlikely to ever marry. The term originally denoted a woman whose occupation was to spin. A synonymous but more pejorative term is old maid. The closest equivalent term for males is 'bachelor', but this doesn't generally carry the same connotations in reference to age and perceived desirability in the marriage market.|
