Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A funny, upbeat, inspiring guide for all those singles who identify with enjoying their unique lifestyles while waiting for the right romance to come along. A celebration of the discerning singles everywhere — the quirkyalone.

There was a time when a single woman over 25 was called an old maid. Mothers fretted these unfortunate creatures might be condemned to a committing a crime of tragic proportions: living a life of eternal spinsterhood. Fortunately, in the 21st century, tv shows like Sex and the City affirm that it's more than ok — it's cool to be single. Sasha Cagen has coined the term that defines the lonely romantic who prefers her (or his) own company to that of a less desirable counterpart. Defining singledom as a natural resting state for quirkyalones, Cagen's guide is the best kind of self-empowerment: incisive, savvy, hilarious. Equal parts self — help and hilarious pop culture, QuirkyAlone is self-empowerment for the wise people of the world. Including quizzes, lists, it's not-your-average-relationship-book.

Synopsis:

quirkyalone (kwur.kee.uh.lohn) n. adj.

A person who enjoys being single (but is not opposed to being in a relationship) and generally prefers to be alone rather than date for the sake of being in a couple. With unique traits and an optimistic spirit; a sensibility that transcends relationship status. Also adj. Of, relating to, or embodying quirkyalones.

See also: romantic, idealist, independent.

Are you a quirkyalone? Do you know someone who is?

  • Do you believe life can be prosperous and great with or without a mate?
  • Do you value your friendships as much as your romantic relationships?
  • Do gut instincts guide your most important decisions?
  • Are you often among the first on the dance floor?

Coupled or single, man or woman, social butterfly or shrinking violet, quirkyalones have walked among us, invisible until now. Through the coining of a new word, this tribe has been given a voice. Meet the quirkyalones.

Read about:

  • The quirkyalone nation: where we live, what we do
  • Quirkytogethers (quirkyalones who have entered long-term relationships)
  • Sex and the single quirkyalone
  • Romantic obsession: the dark side of the quirkyalone's romantic personality
  • Quirkyalones throughout history (profiles in courage)
