Because of the prominent mention of people who are single-at-heart in the New York Times, I have been getting more inquiries than usual about what it means to be single-at-heart. Research on the concept is just beginning. Below are links to what I have written so far, and what I have learned from the first 1,200 people who took the single-at-heart survey.

If you want to take the single-at-heart survey, you can click here. That’s just a quick multiple-choice quiz. If you think you may be single at heart and you want to share more detailed stories about your life, this questionnaire asks lots of questions for you to answer in your own words. I’d love to hear from you.

The logo, by the way, is from my “Single at Heart” blog at Psych Central. I write just as often about single-at-heart topics at my “Living Single” blog at Psych Today.
