I have been reviewing books for Psych Central since 2015. Happily, many of them have been about single people, single life, or experiences particularly relevant to single life. Even better, each year seems to bring even more singles-relevant books than the year before. There are now so many that it seems worthwhile to assemble a list of them, and that’s what I’ve done here. I will continue to update this post as more reviews and discussions are published.

Others find it hard to start families due to the high financial costs of doing so. There are several financial benefits that come with being single. Here are some you would be surprised to know.
Unlike other isms that are more widely recognized, singlism (the stereotyping, stigmatizing, and discrimination against single people) is not on most people’s radar. What’s more, if they do hear about it, they often deny it or minimize it or lash out at the people who point to it. What’s going on? Here are some of the blog posts I’ve written about this.

Divorce is one experience that brings a mixture of feelings for an individual who is going through it. It may bring a positive result for some but for most, it has a negative impact. Anger, frustration, anxiety, misunderstanding, miscommunication, and pain are a few of the major negative energies that can steer a marriage into divorce. Couples end up realizing that a separation from each other is the only solution that can end the constant disagreements between them.
