Review - Kiss Me, I'm Single: An Ode to the Solo Life by Amanda Ford

Kiss Me, I'm Single
Amanda Ford
Conari Press
ISBN # 978-1573243018

"True love is an inside job and begins with you. It is a basic fact of life that in order to be truly happy and fulfilled with another person, you must be truly happy and fulfilled on your own first. A good relationship can enhance life for sure, but it cannot take what is just "okay" and turn in into perfect."

This book does a fine job of saying "Being with yourself is okay, loving yourself is okay, and knowing yourself is okay." Not everyone is ready to pair off in their twenties, or sometimes even their thirties. You don't have to be part of a couple to be happy. Maybe life is not about what you can't live without, so much as what you can't live with.

This book sounds great. I'm a firm believer in being happy where you are on the way to where you're going.

Thanks for the nice review.
