An upbeat guide for single women on how to navigate the crazy world of modern dating and live their best lives, whether single or coupled
It’s easy to fall into a bad relationship with dating today, especially for single women. From living in fear of being “ghosted” to enduring endless well-meaning questions about why you haven’t found Mr. Right yet, it’s tough to be unattached without feeling you’re somehow inadequate or doomed to spend life alone and depressed!
According Dr. Jenny Taitz, acclaimed relationship psychologist and behavioral therapy specialist, it’s time for a reality check: single women are not a “problem” to be “solved”. In How to Be Single, Dr. Taitz draws on clinical research, hundreds of patient interviews, and positive psychology principles to bust the myths that relationships are cure-alls for unhappiness and being single is “bad”. Instead, this clever, inspiring guide shows savvy single ladies how to stop overanalyzing romantic encounters, get over regrets or guilt about failed relationships and dates that disappeared, and identify and cultivate the values and connections that make them happiest. Dr. Taitz also shares proven strategies for building fulfilling lives around themselves first, helping single women better identify what they want and need in a partner and become more skillful daters in the process. The result is women living their best lives, with or without a partner.
“The fear of being alone leads many down disappointing paths, and I’m thrilled Jenny Taitz is writing this book to help readers avoid that trap.”—Adam Grant
