Publisher's Summary

An upbeat guide for single women on how to navigate the crazy world of modern dating and live their best lives, whether single or coupled It's easy to fall into a bad relationship with dating today, especially for single women. From living in fear of being "ghosted" to enduring endless well-meaning questions about why you haven't found Mr. Right yet, it's tough to be unattached without feeling you're somehow inadequate or doomed to spend life alone and depressed! According Dr. Jenny Taitz, acclaimed relationship psychologist and behavioral therapy specialist, it's time for a reality check: single women are not a "problem" to be "solved". In How to Be Single, Dr. Taitz draws on clinical research, hundreds of patient interviews, and positive psychology principles to bust the myths that relationships are cure-alls for unhappiness and being single is "bad". Instead, this clever, inspiring guide shows savvy single ladies how to stop overanalyzing romantic encounters, get over regrets or guilt about failed relationships and dates that disappeared, and identify and cultivate the values and connections that make them happiest. Dr. Taitz also shares proven strategies for building fulfilling lives around themselves first, helping single women better identify what they want and need in a partner and become more skillful daters in the process. The result is women living their best lives, with or without a partner. Author bio: Jennifer L. Taitz, Psy.D., A.B.P.P., is a board-certified cognitive behavioral clinical psychologist and a certified dialectical behavioral therapist who has written for Fox News Health and The Huffington Post. The author of End Emotional Eating and a founding board member of the New York City Association for Contextual Behavior Science, Dr. Taitz has presented at conferences nationally and internationally on novel clinical applications in mindfulness and relationships. She lives in Los Angeles, CA, where she has a clinical psychology and counseling practice.

Great book with a lot of depth

I found this book very helpful after a divorce and facing being single. It also helped me figure out what I valued and gave me a healthy direction for when looking for my soul mate. I'm very happy I got this audiobook.

Best self help book I’ve read

This book isn’t like other self help books I’ve read and is about you not how you qualify to others. Self growth, self satisfaction, not about making you look better for a potential partner. I take this book on advice about life not about just relationships. #Audible1

Really A Book For Anyone Looking For More From Lif

This book really gives you a better practice of mindfulness and taking control of your life weather single or not. It’s clearly read, soft spoken, and enjoyable. I definitely recommend for anyone in a life rut thinking a relationship or someone can help them out.

This book is about so much more than the title.

This book is excellent. I could not put it down. It is basically about how to be a better person by looking inward. I will recommend this book to everyone.

Love this book!

This is a fantastic book! I'm reading the hardcover as well as the audio version to ensure I soak it all in. The author shares a lot of great insights on how to live a more happy and fulfilled life. She discusses real life stories on how her principles and insights have helped her patients. The narrarator has a pleasant voice.

Would help anyone

This book has really helped me see ways I can be happy being single or in a relationship. It's about understanding yourself better and having more confidence and inner peace. Independence from the 'I need someone' mindset. Worth many rereads.

an approach to being single, but not alone...🤞

I cried in the first chapter, yes, it hit "home" quick! After that, I felt relieved that I could focus on the book. I will need to re-listen to this self-help book because there are suggestions that I needed to write down, but couldn't while driving. 😁

Not just for women

I was hesitant to get this because it's marketed to women, but it's for everyone

A must re-read, and not just for singles!

I've sent this book to all of my dearest friends. I had just finished The Love Gap (an also must) and was truly skeptical about diving into this one...the title was a bit too promising. But within minutes of starting to listen, I knew it was EXACTLY what my searching single soul needed. I've not bought a paper copy so I can re-read it, with a highlighter in hand!

Ruminate No More

Jennifer does a great job addressing this issue. I will definitely listen to this book again. Her work is valuable, laying out strategy to progress through rumination and into a healthier mind, and sense of self.
