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.

My friend heard Michelle Cove speak at a women's conference and was really impressed by her so she recommended this book to me. I'm single, happy, and perfectly content to never get married. My friend thought that this book could relate to the frustration of dealing with people who continually make me feel like a freak of nature for this.
I was a little discouraged in the beginning because I started thinking it was a self help book to offer advice on how to get a man. Towards the end, I got the validation I needed that there are other women out there like me (we don't hate men, we're not necessarily against marriage, we just don't long for it)
Overall, I'd recommend this book to others but if the 3 question quiz doesn't apply to you at the beginning of each chapter, then you don't have to bother reading those chapters.

I enjoyed this book! It made me feel a lot better about being single, But at the same time, I would have loved more advice and more in depth information in each chapter. But overall a good book and I recommend it.
