Overview

""Singled Out" debunks myths and stereotypes about single people and lays the groundwork for social, political, and economic change."
-- Thomas F. Coleman, Executive Director, Unmarried America

Drawing from decades of scientific research and stacks of stories from the front lines of singlehood, Bella DePaulo debunks the myths of singledom---and shows that just about everything you've heard about the benefits of getting married and the perils of staying single are grossly exaggerated or just plain wrong. Although singles are singled out for unfair treatment by the workplace, the marketplace, and the federal tax structure, they are not simply victims of this singlism--single people really are living happily ever after.

"Singled Out" Debunks Ten Myths of Singlehood, Including:
-Myth--The Dark Aura of Singlehood: You are miserable and lonely and your life is tragic.
-Myth--Attention, Single Women: Your work won't love you back and your eggs will dry up. Also, you don't get any and you're promiscuous.
-Myth--Attention, Single Men: You are horny, slovenly, and irresponsible, and you are the scary criminals. Or you are sexy, fastidious, frivolous, and gay.

"Elegant analysis, wonderfully detailed examples, and clear and witty prose A must-read for all single adults, their friends and families, as well as social scientists and policy advocates."
--E. Kay Trimberger, author of "The New Single Woman"

"The singles movement is coming to a bookstore near you."
--"Associated Press"

"Fascinating . .this book could hardly have come at a better time. As much as societal adulation of the couple discriminates against single people, "Singled Out" suggests that it can also undermine marriage."
--"The" "Christian Science Monitor""
