Ever since I started talking and teaching and writing about singles and single life, I've been asked all sorts of questions. They come from readers of my books and my blogs, from reporters, from students, and from the people I talk to in my everyday life. I'm happy to answer just about all of them. (Readers of this blog already know the exceptions - no questions about dating or mate-baiting!)
I'm currently compiling some of the most interesting or most frequently-asked questions, along with my answers, into a brief book tentatively titled, "A Decade of Questions about Single Life." (Actually, it's been more than a decade.) Below are the five categories of questions I'm working with at the moment, plus some sample questions in each category.
Are there any questions you'd like to add to my list? You should also feel free to suggest points I should make in my answers. (If you do so, let me know if I can credit you if I do use your suggestions and how to refer to you.)
