Sometimes when you look around, it seems as if the entire world is coupled up. Family, friends, that couple holding hands walking down the street, everyone is either married or in a serious, committed relationship. If you're not one of those people, the world can seem a lonely place. But why is that? Why can't a person be both single and happy? Drawing on years of clinical experience and research with both single and married clients, Amador and Kiersky have identified the five common stumbling blocks that can get in the way of enjoying singledom. Taking a careful look at the obstacles that cause single people the most pain, the authors have developed a four-step plan to help you achieve balance and happiness, whether or not you stay single. And the first and most challenging step is to stop buying into old fashioned ideas about singlehood and marriage. Combining clear advice and vivid case examples, BEING SINGLE IN A COUPLE'S WORLD gives us the tools we need to find our way to a healthier self-image and more meaningful relationships.
