The Truth About Why We're Still Single
Add to Wish List
While cell phones, text messages, e-mail, BlackBerries,
speed dating, and internet dating all conspire to create a
sense that there are endless options, a culture of "consumer
sex" and casual hook-ups make settling down feel like
settling. And as the age of first marriage goes up, the
level of expectation climbs right along with it, and we
start subjecting prospective mates to "the checklist." From
the collapse of courtship and the death of romance to the
overriding media message that single life is sexy and
married life is boring, we have a culture of mixed emotions
about the very concept of marriage.
Confronted by a
host of factors that other generations never considered in
their search for love and commitment, the "unhooked
generation" faces a potholed road to romance. Rich with
compelling personal stories, and leavened with wit and sharp
observation, this is a book that clarifies this confusing,
compelling issue as no other book has -- and in its final
chapter offers concrete advice for addressing the problem.
