The more you hate being single, the more you shoul
This book has spots where suggestions are poor or questionable, writing is spotty, and material may not apply to you. Regardless, I have found this to be a great book. The premise--we can be just as happy being single as we can being happy in a relationship--seems obvious but is difficult to accept because of our culture. Consider the movie endings where a newly-wedded couple "lives happily ever after" or "a diamond is forever"; when you're bombarded with these visions from a young age, you can't help but get down on yourself when you're single. I highly recommend this book because it breaks down the dynamics involved with relationships and puts them back together in new perspectives. For me, it provided many insights that I'd never had before about being single such as being able to do *anything* I want, not having to worry about the significant other's family, taking detours on trips. It also takes a lot of pressure off of me when it comes to dating, which is good because I hate dating. In the end, I've realized I'm in a pretty good place being single, and that realization was well worth the price of this book.
