Single That

Adult; Self-Help & Relationships; (Market)

Single, that does not mean broken, lonely, or desperate. Even if for extended periods, being single does not mean that you are hard to love. These are a few of the myths that Single That puts to rest while empowering women to refuse being defined by whether or not we have a significant other. 

Whether dating, divorced, in a relationship, or learning how to be alone, you will receive an empathetic yet assertive nudge toward the belief that you are enough. You will receive support if already comfortable and confident in this idea as Single That addresses misconceptions especially prevalent when assessing single women in their 30s and older.

A practical guide in defense, support, and admiration of the single woman, Single That obliterates audacious assumptions one by one, and serves as a reminder that we are much more than a relationship status. We are certainly more than the negative connotations that others choose to associate with our relationship status. This book is a must-read for every past and present single woman, as well as every man who would like first-hand insight into what being a single woman really means.

Reviews
Journalist Deadwiler (Life, Love and the Pursuit Of) advocates for the rights of single women in this energetic work. By exposing the double standard of expectations for men and women when it comes to love and family, Deadwiler drives home the point that women can, in fact, be happy and single. She deconstructs expectations of traditional gender roles and heteronormative motives that lead to such myths as that single women are desperate, lonely, jealous, high maintenance, or hard to love. She also provides suggestions for changing the way people think about and behave around single individuals, such as avoiding assumptions about why someone is single and offering a nonjudgmental ear. While Deadwiler does well to dispel the myths around the straight single woman, her examples and advice never consider the perspective of LGBTQ readers. The self-work she stresses urges women not to settle for less than what they want: “It’s important that we not only believe we’re worth what we desire, but also the wait necessary to obtain it.... Better to be alone than in bad company.” Single readers will find wise advice and many great examples of how contentment can be a solo act in Deadwiler’s empowering testament. (Self-published)

"Single That is a well-written, comprehensive look at the misconceptions of single life. The level of honesty and openness Acamea utilizes to discuss the double standards of dating within society sparks such a powerful and controversial conversation that I was often forced to grapple with my own thoughts and opinions on how single people are viewed in the eyes of others. This was truly an insightful and unique read!"
