“All Things Single” readers, I’m blogging to you first. My new book, Singlism: What It Is, Why It Matterse, and How to Stop It – written together with 28 other contributors – is now available. You can get it here at Amazon, though as I write this, Amazon has not yet added the description of the book. (They build book pages one or two sections at a time.) You can also get the paperback here, at the book’s own page, where the description does show up.
In the UK Sunday Times on May 8, a former Team 6 Seal member said this about the guys in the unit who got bin Laden:
Every so often, someone publishes one of those predictable “best places to be single” stories. They are always the same – they are not about places for people who want to live their single lives, but instead about the best places to become unsingle. I’ve been thinking about the question because of an email I recently received from a reader, Rosemary.
I try never to let a full week pass without posting here but I seem to have blown it this time. It is for a good reason, though. I have been totally engaged in working on the Singlism book, the one I described earlier that will include lots of contributions from other wonderful thinkers, authors, and activists as well as my own writings. I’ve been organizing the contributions, doing some editing, and refining my own articles and essays. Now I’m rereading every page to be sure it is all in order. I’m very excited about this.
We who believe so deeply in fairness for single people (including unmarried couples) have had wonderful leadership in the past from single-minded change agents Thomas F. Coleman, Dorian Solot and Marshall Miller, and most recently, Nicky Grist. The Alternatives to Marriage Project is now looking for its next Executive Director. This is such an important position. Take a look at the position announcement below (and click on the link to the full description). If you think you have the goods – or if you know someone who does – let the search committee know!
A post I wrote about the top 10 myths about single people has been featured since this morning at the top of the Living page at the Huffington Post. There are already 148 comments, which I have not even started reading yet. Just wanted to let you know in case you want to join the discussion. (You probably already know about the myths.) You can find the post here.
