Highly recommend! If you take this book one chapter at a time (1 chapter a day), you’ll soon see in no time that being single is such a gift from God. Even if you are still looking to be married, this book will help you on your single journey while you find that special someone!

Let me describe my situation so you will understand why this product was not a great fit for me... I am a 28 year old male who has always wanted to be in a relationship and get married someday. Unfortunately all the women I like, don't like me back in the same way or I am just really bad at starting romantic relationships. So in a nutshell; I am single, I don't want to be single, but I need to learn how to make the best of this miserable situation for the time being. I have been alone for 7 years. I am starting to feel desperate, and that bothers me.

Here is a description of the author; She is female. She is single. She wants to be single. She seemingly wrote this book to justify that choice and help others justify their choice.

Can you see where there could be a problem? She assumes that I am waiting on being married to do things like "buy a house", and so she suggests making a list of all the things singles put off until marriage and just do them. My list had things like: have children, sleep with my wife, cook dinner for her, create a husband and wife band and go on tour, write love letters to each other. etc.
She rejects other people's assistance to get a date. I would graciously accept any such help or advice. Reading things like that and other parts that can be summed up as "don't worry. pretend to like being single, and eventually you will."

On the positive side I found some of the parts that were not written by the author to be insightful, and even comforting.

So the search continues for a book that was written by a male christian who is/was single by circumstance for a long time, which is about how he managed to navigate being single and overcome the emotional problems involved.

excellent book! all single people will be able to relate to the wisdom inside. The author gets as the heart of finding fulfillment in life.
Being single is an interesting state. Are you single because you are still discerning, or waiting to discern, whether you are called to marriage or religious life? Have you chosen to be single---either short-term or long-term? To consciously choose to remain single is counter-cultural. Many people simply do not understand that one would choose this.

In Party of One: Living Single with Faith, Purpose & Passion, author Beth M. Knobbe discusses single life candidly and compassionately. The author has experience living the single life and has recruited fellow singles to contribute their stories as well. The first person perspective keeps the book from sounding "preachy." Each chapter adheres to the same structure focusing on a principle or virtue---commentary by Knobbe, personal essays from other single individuals, spiritual principles, scripture quotations and a few reflection questions. Knobbe challenges the stigmas and stereotypes that singles face on a daily basis buy examining myths such as "You're not an adult until you get married," "Being single means being alone," and "Singles live a carefree life." The scripture verses and suggestions given at the end of each chapter provide further insight and encourage time for reflection. The reflection questions "stayed with me," allowing an easy way to continue to connect with material. The multifaceted structure of each chapter allows a large variety of information to be presented in a compact fashion, but I found that it gave a choppy feel to the book. The discontinuity made it challenging for me to read more than a few pages at a time.

I think that this book would be excellent for someone who is feeling depressed or discouraged about single life---either for personal reasons or because of outside influences. However, as one who is happily single, I sometimes felt that the writing was somewhat of a downer as it pointed out different aspects of single life or interactions with friends, family, or others which might make one feel disparaged. Just because it's not for everyone does not mean that I think it's a bad book. Definitely 4 out of 5 stars.

Note: I received a complimentary copy of his book from the Catholic Company in exchange for an honest review of the book.
