WHAT INSPIRED BETTER SINGLE THAN SORRY? Backlash. People said I was crazy, that I’d be single the rest of my life. But there are a lot of single women waiting for the right guy.

NO DATING TIPS? There are enough books out there about how to get a man and why he’s not into you.

SO HOW DO YOU STAY HAPPILY SINGLE? Connect with other women; do things that interest you, not just things to meet a man. Surround yourself with positive people. But also learn to be okay by yourself.

STILL DREAM OF FINDING MR. RIGHT? Absolutely! And I feel that I will.
