The author is amazing I wish I could meet her!! I learned so much about how our society really do not allow people to CHOOSE the lifestyle that is best for them without marketing always being a couple.

The prejudice is very covert in nature and in so many ways un realistic to expect everyone should want to be part of a couple.

Couple work is hard work and until you are happy with yourself as a single you can’t give to any other relationship! BRAVO!! I would recommend this book also to women who are newly divorced since society expect women to want to rush into a relationship.

This is a different type of singles book. The way Singles are treated in the real world. (U.S.) Like going to a 4 or 5 star restaurant with reservations and then getting seated at the bar because you are alone. Or paying double going on a cruise. The list goes on.
And the Taxes we pay. We subsidize the U.S. governments breeding program. Very informative. It will open your eyes.

Interesting and very well based scientifically and in recent research. Always single like me will find similarities with some situations in their lives and problems. Nevertheless it was not exactly what I expected since the book is mainly about problems single people encounter in their lives but not how you deal with them. Also it is very centered in US policies, scientific research and media. So people like me who are outside US will find that in a certain point you begin to pass over pages because things are not quite like that in your country. I gave four stars because I really think the effort was great and very well scientifically based.

As this is really just a compilation of blog posts, the reference to basic stats, stories and the writer's book, were overly repetitive - to the point where I just scanned through the last 1/4. That said, it does pack some powerful info and context, which will really leave single women with the conclusion that they are not alone, they can be happy, and they can tell anyone who thinks otherwise to go shove it. That I liked. I appreciate her embracing singledom without bashing marriage, and sticking with the facts, informed opinions and anecdotes. With the read.
