It was a few years ago when I first got the thought to connect two of my worlds and blog about single life.   As a Grief Recovery Method Specialist, I spend a lot of time talking to people who are doing their best to recover from life’s hurts and disappointments.   As a single person, people would dole out (unsolicited)  advice which I found to be both practical (do what you love) and dismissive (appreciate what you have).   I noticed a theme between the conversations I have with singles and the convos I have with grievers: both are dealing with a loss that is limiting their capacity for happiness.  So I started writing about the experiences of singles that was less prescriptive and more descriptive.

And then I started dating.  All of a sudden, dating life got added to the mix.  Mr./Mrs. Wrong, Breakups, etc. all contain losses: losses of trust, loss of hope, loss of faith.   

And then one guy I dated became my husband and marriage became yet another area of written conversation.

If you asked me to condense all three social worlds (single life, dating, & marriage) into one word, it would be love.  The search to find, maintain and grow love in your life.  That is the crux of it all.  So I invite you to check out real-life experiences of these worlds.  They are located in the dropdown of the blog tab. 

Thank you in advance for your participation in the conversation!
