Everywhere around us, it seems that being “coupled up” is the norm, but the population of single people continues to increase. In fact, research shows that by 2030, 25% of adults between the ages of 45 and 54 will never marry. Yet songs, movies, books, our parents, and society as a whole tells us that we’re “incomplete” without a partner.
There are a lot of books out there designed to show women how to be single. How to Be a Happy Bachelor represents a tool men can use to “do singlehood right” in a world that can be judgmental against the non-coupled. It discusses how to think critically about society’s perceptions of marriage, how to overcome your stigma and fear of being alone, and even how to respond to society’s judgments like a pro so that you can live a full, happy life, whether single or coupled up.
