This book was like having a conversation with an older sibling, or someone who has gone thru the singlehood process ahead of you. While not rocket science, the author articulated various elements of singlehood that is most uncomfortable. I appreciated most the resounding theme ending every chapter -- that I'm single, sassy and an A-list friend. When I attempt to down myself, this mantra pops into my head. I thought this was good book, with much humor and yet serious enough to reassure many single women that this is a state of being not of our own doing, but just is. And, it doesn't mean there's something wrong with a single woman. Would highly recommend!

Karin Anderson's book is really different. She doesn't give you one single solitary piece of advice about what to do on a date, or how to relate to the guy, or admonish you for being needy and super clingy. Instead, she glories in all the mistakes you make, in all the bad choices, the silly behavior, and the way we obsess about the mysterious ways of men.

Then she tells you to just get the heck over it because there isn't anything wrong with anything that you are doing, it just hasn't happened yet.

As far as self-help dating manuals go, this book is unique. The perspective it offers is one I hadn't really considered before, and in this world of regurgitated information, a new perspective is something that really appeals to me.

The idea that "It Just Hasn't Happened Yet" is one that makes rational sense and gives us girls a break from picking apart our every failed relationship and the extreme self-bashing many of us to engage in to explain our single status.

The book will appeal to the woman who is tired of looking for love in every nook and cranny, tired of feeling like she's falling short because she isn't married, and tired of wondering why she's still single.

As single women, we read book after book telling us about what we need to change in order to snag a partner. We have friends and family members that are so concerned that our happiness should be found in a romantic relationship that they offer their love by telling us what we are doing wrong or what we should be doing more of in regards to dating, even when we don't solicit it. We somehow are being told that our self-esteem should be found not in who we are, but what we should or could be doing. But, frankly, it's all discouraging as well as just down right depressing. But, after reading, "It just hasn't happened yet" I finally felt like someone understood me. After reading it, I was greatly encouraged and it gave me hope that there really is someone out there for me who will take me and love me AS I AM. Anderson, wove her voice throughout the book in such a non-forceful way which made it an easy read. I found myself inspired and validated while reading it, which feels SO good! Finally!!! Some words that stick out to me to sum up this book, would be, authentic, uplifting, and fair.

This book is a MUST read for all of us "single" girls out there! WOW, I finally found a book that I can relate to, not another "how to" guide on finding the man of your dreams. I get enough of that from everyone else!
