Editorial Reviews

Review

"Finally, a book that single women can relate to! Too often, self-help books operate on fear-mongering--aiming to convince women that they have some major defect preventing them from finding Mr. Right... Michelle Cove starts with the assumption that single women are just fine as they are and then provides warm, friendly and wise advice to help women be their happiest self no matter what stage of being single they are in."
--Courtney E. Martin, editor at Feministing and author of Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters: How the Quest for Perfection is Harming Young Women

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Finally a book that lets you feel proud about being single! This book makes you feel like you are not alone in the life of a single woman and that it's okay to be single. Singlehood is an actual stage of life to be embraced and not something that anyone should be embarrassed by. I especially liked the chapter which included "the mom talk". This book is great and I recommend it to any single woman out there!

So refreshing to find a book that doesn't try to stuff all singles into one neat little package. The chapter called "The Slow and Steady" really resonated with me. I live with my boyfriend of 5+ years. We are together for the long haul and will likely get married at some point, just not in the near future. The chapter reaffirmed my belief that he and I are in a place that works for us and ultimately, that's all that matters. I've seen many young women feel enormous pressure to get engaged or married after being in a relationship for x number of years, as if there's some sort of overarching formula to compute when the 'right time' is. Cove speaks to this and clearly gets that there's no one `happily ever after' for everyone. I definitely recommend this book for any single woman who is looking for ways to feel good, or even better, about her life.

This was a really fun read. Michelle Cove has a great way with expressing what so many of us think. And this book is not just for single, 30 something women. I have recommended it to a cousin who has been after her 30 something son to find a girl, and I think she will get good advice from this book. It is the way that Ms. Cove has organized the book that really works. Not only does it present the issues, but gives down to earth solutions and suggestions for the single person and for her/his friends and family. I'm actually a mother of three grown children and have been single for many years . There is plenty for me to take in as well. And, I can't wait to see the documentary that precipitated the writing of this book!!

This is a great book. I have never read an advice book, but this is where it's at. This book doesn't pontificate in abstract terms but it tells you exactly what to try/journal/google/say. I am married and have found this book STILL so helpful for two main reasons. One: This book says what my kind single friends wouldn't tell me which is=I've been really obnoxious about the single status some times. THANK YOU.
Two: I love to complete the journal task the chapters offer to gain insight on who I've dated, why, and more...What's great is the book reminds you not to be delusional with your self, it won't get you anywhere.
I think it should be a mandatory read for all 20 years old and up. Then you have to read it each year after that as a reminder on how to be healthy to yourself. Can I go back in time please! This book would have been so helpful.
