"Dr. Karin emphatically contends that nothing is wrong with you if you’re still single. You just haven’t yet met “The One,” and that’s OK. Being single is not a curse or a crime or something that needs to be fixed or ashamed of. It’s just where you are in life, and the sooner you stop defining yourself by it, or beating yourself over it, the better."
"If you’re single and not reading Single is the New Black then you, my dear friend, are missing out. This book gives voice to myriad of challenges we as single women face in a world that’s seemingly built for two. Or rather, that’s the narrative we’re sold, right?"
". . . if I had read Single is the New Black in my insecure twenties, I would not have made some reckless decisions and bad choices. I’m really glad I was still on the shelf at 28 – and only married at 30 – when I found my perfect man. If I’d married any of my twenty-something “mistakes”, I’d be miserable and full of regret now…"
"Ditch the rules! Seriously. Enough of books trying to convince you that if you do this, say that, or act a certain way you’ll hook the guy. How about just being yourself? Being single is not a curse or a crime or something that needs to be ‘fixed’, and Single is the New Black does a great job of reminding women that they are worthy of true love... whether solo or coupled.”
"Dr. Karin and her wisdom in this book has been a valuable resource for me while I navigate the emotional roller coaster called 'being single with kids after divorce in your late 30's'. I love her very easy to read and systematic approach to each chapter (which feels like sitting on the couch talking to a trusted friend), backed up by the juicy and super practicality of the psychological WHY of the feelings themselves (which feels like sitting on the couch talking to a trusted therapist). I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels torn between what they want and what they currently have, and am personally excited to listen to chapter 11 on repeat in the audio edition.”
"I just got your book and read it cover to cover and loved it! Your book addressed a lot of my concerns and put me at ease."
"I love your book. I am a high school teacher and I just turned 35. I am still single, and very proud and happy with my life the way it is. I really like the male perspective Guy provides. It's nice to know that men have a tough time meeting girls, too. Although we are out here!!Thanks for an awesome and helpful book!"
"Single is the New Black is awesome. It's an incredibly refreshing read, especially for someone who has read and talked about the topic in both academic and nonacademic arenas."
"I read your book and loved it! I've been single for a while now and have worked long and hard at my own sense of self and creating an independent life of my own. I had a history of abusive controlling relationships, so, for me, that meant taking some time on my own to get to know who I am."
"The book really resonated with me and provided a different perspective for why I am having certain feelings and pressures as a young professional, entering an age where my friends are all getting married or in serious relationships."
"Thank you for making me laugh and cheering me up. I am passing your book on to all my single girlfriends AND their mothers."
"Thank you for writing such a fantastic and insightful book! I loved it! Every page made me feel better and better. For years I've bristled with resentment when my mother or some other well-meaning person tsk-tsks over me not being married with a kid. I hate it! Men are not usually pressured to be married, but people think we women are just big fat losers without a man. Your book gave me the necessary weapons and armor I needed to defend myself against such tsk-tsks."". . . if I had read Single is the New Black in my insecure twenties, I would not have made some reckless decisions and bad choices.
