How to Be Single by Liz Tuccillo has a simple premise: how do women all over the world handle being single? Unfortunately for Julie, a publicist living in New York City, the answer is much more complicated than the question. After watching the unsuccessful love lives of her three closest friends, Julie decides that it is time that someone discerns the answer to this probing question. Serena decides to join an ashram, taking a vow of celibacy, but that vow is much harder to keep than she realizes. Does this premise sound familiar?

This past week my social media has become the Land of All Things Beauty and the Beast and I once again started questioning just how abnormal I am being that I am super creeped out by nearly everything Disney - especially middleaged women with no children who are obsessed with it. And then?????? On one hand, each character - filled with pathos and false bravado, reminded me of well And all my female friends.
On the other hand, it felt ridiculous and contrived which naturally upsets me. This was an essay disguised as a novel,and reads like a non-fiction, which works for the book.
Or know someone who has. And the men are not spared the steretyping either. Especially single ones. None of the men are apparently worthy of us, and yet we are still stupid enough to want them. The stereotypes extend to countries as well. The cultural comparisons of the "Stupid Americans" who want it all vs.
I felt inexplicably sad. The author sneers at how easily people tell us we need to love ourselves, and yet, ends with the admission that, " I think we are going to have to love ourselvs. I know. I know". And neither does Tuccillo.
