Book Cover & Blurb: Singlehood

The Myths of Unmarrieds Are Shattered in Newly Released Book, Singlehood
The plight of the unwed is explored and exploded in the newly released book, Singlehood.
Lakeville, MN – Being single doesn't have to be a source of stress over expectations. Singlehood, a new book by Wilson Awasu, PhD, explodes the myths about what it means to be single and what singles can do to make the most of this time of life.
The idea or state of being single can dredge up many complex emotions. There are social pressures to marry that play upon our self-esteem and make us question where we fit in the world. The pressure to marry – to be complete in the eyes of society – often drives seekers to look for a partner with a laundry list of must-haves; it blinds them to their own dysfunctions and what they will bring to a partnership. The pressures can be overwhelming, even depressing.
The state of “singlehood” should be a time of growth and blossoming, not bitterness and frustration. It is a time to learn skills needed to take charge of the experience, to focus on what we will bring to marriage, instead of what we want a partner to give us or do for us – this is what builds the foundations for a successful marriage.
Singlehood takes a refreshing look at what it means to be single. The book invites singles to learn how to actively take charge of the experience of singlehood, so they can later transition into a successful marriage.
