Hello, My Name is Single by Adriane Dorr Heins. As the subtitle says, this book is about how the author, "...Learned to Ignore the World's Expectations and Trust God." Through her various discussions she aims to help the reader understand better what it means to be single and be open to God's plan even thought it might be different than you had imagined. To accomplish this dual role, she covers the waterfront on the major issues singles face: loneliness, dating, relationships, love, sex, break-ups, and how men and women view things differently, etc.      Sometimes she targets her discussions towards the young single person but she also has material that targets the widowed and divorced as well as "the celibate."
