Last Monday, I left for a trip to Finland where I was invited to give three talks on singles and singlism. Returning meant flying from Turku to Copenhagen, then to Chicago, where my flight to LA was delayed for hours, and then so was my transportation back to Summerland. Plus, I had no access to my email accounts. So today, hours after returning to the warm sun of Summerland, I’m still working my way through thousands of messages. For now, I’ll just offer a preview of things to come.
Issues about single people followed me all along the way. Before I even got to Finland, newspapers in airports were offering headlines about the latest study supposedly showing that if you are single, cancer will kill you much faster than if you are married. When I arrived, a journalist had a copy of a story from a Dutch paper, and asked me to comment on it. So one of my upcoming posts will be about that, but if you have read the second chapter of Singled Out, you probably already have a pretty good idea of why we single people shouldn’t just go ahead and off ourselves now and just get it over with.
Below are some other topics for posts in the next week or so, here and at my other blogs. (One of my other blogs is set up so that posts can be written in advance and then scheduled to appear at any time, so some of the posts there were written before I left and are not on these particular topics.)
