On Saturday October 10, 2020, I will be giving the keynote address for the online conference, Singles Studies: Global Perspectives. You can read more about it here. If it is not yet Oct 10, you can register here. This is the text of my talk, so you can follow along or just read it when it is convenient.
My TEDx talk, “What no one ever told you about people who are single,” captures the true spirit of my work on single people, as I have pursued it for more than two decades. It is a joyful, unapologetic, myth-busting, affirming take on single life, based not just on my opinions or experiences, but scientific research.
In September 2018, I was invited to participate in a lively festival of philosophy and music, “How the Light Gets In,” in London. Featured speakers included a lot of famous people and me. I gave a talk, “Single people are doing so much better than you realized: Is it because they are free?” and participated in a debate, “Love, life, and being free.” Click the links to watch the talk and the debate. I also wrote some blog posts that include some excerpts from my talk and more detailed versions of my answers to some of the questions that were discussed in the debate. They are below. (And if the music part of the festival of philosophy and music is of particular interest to you, one of my sponsors offers this article with more info on violin tuners, violins, guitars, and more.)
