I know, I know… It has been forever since my last post. Honestly, I have no excuses. BUT these last couple of months have opened me up to new thoughts and ideas to share on my blog.

Before starting, I would like to remind everyone that even though I am single I still have eyes, I still have ears, I still have likes and dislikes.

The entire article is an interview with Brian Bethune, a university professor, as he shares his thoughts and opinions on the stigma of being single. He points out some concerning issues about how society reacts to single people: More
