|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." Being a Christian, she also reflects on the role of
the church and how the church can better interact and be more accepting
of single adults. Through out the book she stresses how Jesus loves us
and is there to be our guide and direct our paths.
Some of the 11 chapter titles include, The Untouchables; History Is on
Your Side; Lonely, Lame and Overrated; The Caste System; Love>Sex;
Awkward Breakups and Other Things Singles Could Definitely, Totally Do
Without; The Danger of Fantasy; and We Will Be Understood.
