And though it’s written from a Christian perspective, it is honestly for anyone striving to honor their bodies and remain pure until marriage.
I think this book will isnpire you to let go of the idea of what “Happily Ever After” is supposed to look like, stop obsessing about the destination, and instead, rejoice in the journey.

From loving yourself to letting go to following your dreams to making a difference in the world to refusing to settle in ANY area of your life, this book is a comprehensive look at living your best life as a single woman and celebrating exactly who you are in moment.
And yes, love is a chapter or two of that…but not the entire book.
Because when you change your mindset and start to look at relationships as black and white instead of every shade in between, you cut out a lot of drama and heartache and nonsense.
The honest truth is, as Greg says so succinctly in this book: It just doesn’t get any more black and white, cut and dry than that.
I wanted this book to be a complete snapshot of the entire experience of the single woman, not just one aspect.It is a complete game-changer for anyone, married or single, who is looking to lead a more authentic, transparent life.No matter where we’re at in our lives, vulnerability is necessary to build the career and the relationships and the lives that we dream of. If you’re tired of settling for just breezing through life at the status quo, this book will show you how to love yourself for exactly who you are instead of who the world thinks you should be while challenging you to lead a bigger, bolder, braver life. Cindy Chupack is like sitting down to dinner with your four best girlfriends and swapping stories about your wildest and funniest dating and life fiascos until you’re all breathless with laughter.So many of us hide behind walls of shame and self doubt and fear, we never allow anyone to get close enough to us to see the real us, and this book is all about tearing down those walls to walk in the freedom of Just. Anytime I need a little pick-me-up in my single girl walk, I reach for my very worn copy of this book.If you’ve ever had a bad date, experienced a drive-by relationship, or wondered if you’re the last single girl left on the face of this planet – this book is for you.The only compliant I have about this book is that it came out before the era of texting and Facebooking and IM’ing and DM’ing and Twitter and all the other various ways people communicate now…so I’d love to see an updated version! by Mandy Hale – My second book (and New York Times bestseller) travels deep into the journey of the single woman, covering serious and relevant topics like heartbreak, struggling with anxiety, abusive and toxic relationships, overcoming depression, rediscovering a new career path for yourself after one abruptly ends, and everything in between.
