Website for Single Life articles

Someone posted an article on another single women message board, that had just come out on 12-31-07, about single people OK with their single status, and this link to this website was included in the article. Nice site that just came into being in 11-07 or 12-07. You can get on the e-mailing list for their newsletter. I just received my book "Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant" having ordered it after seeing it mentioned in the Single Edition newsletter.

I kind of wonder if a site like this isn't going to make it? Seems that the majority of anything for "singles" is the assumption that if you are single, you must be unhappy about it and eager to couple up.

By the way, this is the link to the article that contained the mention of the Single Edition website.

Good link, thanks for sharing it, maria. What I find attractive about "our" site is that anyone is welcome and (so far) there is no spam from dating sites...If I want to date, I know pretty much what to do...if I have questions about dating, there are people here that will give advice. If I have a bad day and don't have anyone else to tell it to, I can vent here. I consider everyone that I have rapport here, as a friend. Some are closer friends than others, but it doesn't lessen my caring about others thoughts.

As nearly as I can tell, there are about the same proportion of unhappy marrieds as singles. Anecdotal and personal, I admit, but that's how it seems to me. "Assumptions" are very frequently mistaken. People have their own lives and they seldom disclose "everything".

Hopefully the singles and unhappy marrieds find someone or someplace to be able to talk...holding things in, because they are afraid of what others will think is not a healthy thing either. Not saying it has to be on a web site, just that I have run across a few unhappy people in my day, that tend to isolate themselves.

I've known a few "isolateds" in my day. None of them were anything close to happy. Actually, all of them were strange as hell and becoming more so.

Change is hard to accept...whether it's divorce, retirement, or loss of a spouse. My brother has retired recently and I see him isolating himself and I'm trying to help him realize it's not time to shut down. We can all sit here and be proud of what we do for ourselves and sit pat, but what defines us, IMO is what we can do for others to make them feel better about themselves. It doesn't cost money. Just a little of ones time.

Jo, I still recall that afternoon ride where you took me to that store and those girls were so glad to see you...it made their day....it wasn't a big deal for you or I maybe, but it was for them....looking back it was a big deal for me to see it happen.

I hope that you still stay in touch with them....it wasn't a "well to do" neighborhood store, just people trying to make do. You do indeed take the time to make a difference in peoples lives and you should be admired. If everyone took the time to make someones day, this world would be a better place.
