Really helped me put a lot of abstract concepts I had had in my mind forever into words. I would really like a sequel that explores the possibility of a world where the family cell and monogamic relationships have ceased to exist. I am single by choice, because I don't see how being in a relationship is the most effective way to live a happy life.

I'd love for that angle to be explored more in thepth, since I believe singles by choice and circumstance are two completely different creatures, and should not be considered under the same demographic. Format: Paperback. I love this book! I'm single and I love this book because it explores singlehood and what the author refers to as solo living today. It's an engaging read, starts out with in-depth statistics, research and slowly builds up with stories that made it quite a delight to read. Thank you Netgalley for the eARC.
The English language has more terms for single, unwed women. These terms typically carry a negative connotation. Single women are sometimes called bachelorettes , especially in festive contexts in American English. However, the historic term for unwed women is spinster. The connotations of the word spinster have changed so much over time that it is now considered a derogatory term. The Oxford English Dictionary says in its usage notes for the word:.
Though spinster has a long history of being negative, there are some authors, such as Katie Bolick , that are trying to change the word's connotation into something positive. Catherinette was a traditional French label for girls of 25 years old who were still unmarried by the Feast of Saint Catherine. The term sheng nu is used to describe unmarried women who are in mid to late twenties in China and East Asia. This term also describes as young men who have lost their "manliness". People have different perspectives on the ways in which relationship status influences health.
Lack of social relationships will cause people to gradually lose self-identity, support and purpose  according to psychology professor Peggy A. Thoits at Indiana University. Researchers explained that single people experience more emotional factors that cause them to die sooner. A study that compared attachment patterns of long-term singles and coupled adults found that compared to coupled participants single people reported "higher levels of loneliness, depression, anxiety and sexual dissatisfaction".
People who support being single have different opinions on it, pointing out that not all marriages are created equally. Healthy people, with psychological well being, have happy relationships with their partners.

Another study of more than 10, adults found that married couples were more likely to gain weight during their process of romantic ventures than single people. Dating services are an especially targeted and advertised service for singles. Eisenhower 's term " military industrial complex " has been coined to capture the amount of money and manpower devoted to dating services for singles.
Singles events have been an area of particular growth in singles-related commerce. However, dating via religious-sponsored singles events has also been criticized for fostering invasion of daters' privacy and undue expectations. Also there is a Single Supplement that adds extra fees to those traveling alone. In some countries, particular laws may directly or indirectly disadvantage single persons. In the United States , for example, Social Security widow er benefits are only available to those persons who have been previously married, and single people in the United States pay more income taxes than married people.
Older singles are also a targeted market, for much the same reasons. They are typically divorcees or widowed, perhaps reconciled to being single for the rest of their lives, and looking to make the most of what remains to them. Their children, if any, will typically be financially independent. Related to singlehood: singleness. The state of being unmarried. Mentioned in?
