Relatable

Wasn't expecting it to be written in poetry form but the message was definitely a good one!

Too much Christian references

I expected this book would be thought provoking more than that but it ended up including too much Christian references and addressing the topic of being single in a light way that lacked substance.

simply amazing

love it, she kept it real and supply biblical references. The fact that we can love ourselves and still love others is hard for some people to grasp.

Learning

I'm slowly learning to have confidence in being a single woman. With 4 kids this is harder to do, but this book gave me goals to achieve for this year. I want to be confident enough to eat at a restaurant alone and go to the movies alone. Thank you so much Mandy for showing me I can do it.

Love it!

I LOVE this book. It’s everything I’ve been feeling lately, as a college freshman who has finally come to love her singleness. 19 years old and never had a boyfriend or even been on a date, but this book just highlights how life is to be lived fully no matter what season of life you’re in. Mandy’s relatable, humorous but powerful writing just resonated with me in an amazing way. I’m so glad this book exists. God has really opened my eyes to see that my singleness doesn’t have to be a waiting period and this book just emphasized that even more. Thank you Mandy!

so disappointed

I was hoping for an inspirational guide-book, but all I got was a bundle of superficial klichés. And the narrator sounds just as naive as the words she reads aloud. Don't waste your money on this...

Love this!

This book was such a great eye opener... Ive been divorced and then had a year long relationship after that, now I've been single for about 6 months again and seem to be caught in a rut... this book helped me realize and remember that it's OKAY to be single. It's okay to wait and be happy with yourself. I felt as though it was a close friend giving me advice. I also appreciate how the author used some key points the Bible makes on self love and faith.
I would DEFINITELY recommend this to any single woman who feels like she isn't sure what step to take .

Sassy, uplifting and lovely!

Amazingly frank and to the point book about being a single woman in today's society.

Yes, there are stereotypes and the usual trials and tribulations of being a 30-something singleton, but this book takes all of these on board and smacks them in the face with a big fat "WHATEVER!"

The book says life is for living and appreciating everything around you, especially if you are a single woman. Its refreshing to read a text that puts this into perspective and says its okay to look after yourself, not settle because the clock is ticking and to live a life of freedom, vibrancy and goddess energy. There's beauty in patience. I love the notion of when right man comes along, he's more likely to stick around and respect you, if you are a woman busy enjoying what life has to offer, rather than just waiting around for "the one" to rescue you.

Thank you Mandy Hale for sharing this sassy, uplifting and charismatic book. Great stuff!
