Single is the New Black
Don't wear white 'till it's right

You're still single and you've heard it all:

"You're too picky!"
"Just go online!"
"You're not trying hard enough!"

And frankly, you're tired of it.

In a convincing and spirited manner, Dr. Karin encourages and inspires readers to: 

See what readers are saying!

    Be happy, hopeful, and positive because the happier you are when single, the happier you'll be when married!

    Stay strong amidst prevailing "single shaming" messages.

    Resist the "you need to change to snag a man" protocol of typical self-help fare.

    Remain true to yourself and never settle for anything less than an extraordinary relationship! 

Dr. Karin shares lessons learned from her 27 years on the dating scene—including calling off an engagement to Mr. Wrong before finally marrying Mr. Right at 42!
