Solving Single: How To Get The Ring Not The Run Around-G.L Lambert

A new age relationship guide, but I found it less about getting a man and more about becoming a stronger- much stronger woman in order to bring better romantic and financial options into your life.

Social/Historical context:

In today's world where young women seem to be going off the rails trying to keep up with Miley Cyrus and older women have settled into online dating due to the lack of local eligible men, this book serves to re-balance love and standards. It really is meant to inspire a different way of thinking and actually shows ways to incorporate that. My copy was digital, but there were several times where I wanted to forward it to my 19 year old niece and 37 year old sister alike.

Writing Style:

The author takes a conversational tone throughout the book, it reminds me more of Chelsea Handler's matter-of-fact, we're friends having drinks approach more so than a traditional positive thinking life class approach.

My Thoughts:

I expected Solving Single to recycle the same positivity rhetoric as other books in the dating genre, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the author has gone a radical new direction that left me, a happily married woman, so energized that I started to wonder if I settled for the wrong ring. There is one chapter entitled "How to Get over a Breakup" where it genuinely took me back to the one that got away in my younger years. I wish there was something like this to give me both the strength and wisdom to deal with that pain. We all know maneuvering through love is hard and men are sometimes impossible, but I definitely finished reading this with a new-found take on men, love, and my own life. Often times hilarious, naturally hip, yet extremely heartfelt. I highly recommend reading Solving Single.
