Brook asks...
I am trying to figure out what the kids in my class should call me and I don't know the difference between the usage of Ms. versus Miss. Can you please explain the difference? I am a single, never been married women of 27 years old. Which would be more appropriate?
Anne answers...
Miss is used when a women has never been married; however, it clearly indicates that she has always been single. Ms. is used for both single and married women who believe their marital status is nobody's business. So, which one you use is up to you and how you feel about it. You can't make a mistake here.
