Top 10 Living Single Posts Since 2011 Singles Week

Many posts were popular; here are the favorites

This week, September 16 – September 22, 2012, is National Singles Week (or, Unmarried and Single Americans Week). In keeping with my previous tradition, I thought I’d share the top Living Single posts since National Singles Week of last year.

9. Is cohabitation bad for you? Answers from a 6-year study

8. More teen sex at home and fewer pregnancies: Here’s where it happens

7. Living alone is a sign of success – for the individual and for society

6. What does it mean to be single at heart?

Search for a mental health professional near you.

5. Hooking up smart – and nasty!

4. The best of single life: Lessons from more than a decade of study and a lifetime of experience

3. What you miss by doing what everyone else does

2. The last ‘why are you single’ list you will ever need

Also new this year: the Single with Attitude website, with feeds from dozens of enlightened singles bloggers. I have requests piling up from others asking to be part of the website, so when I find some time to catch up, there may be some new bloggers in the future.

Happy Singles Week!
