    Shani Silver is not an advocate for singlehood. She's an advocate for single women feeling good while single—and there's a difference. 
     
    A Single Revolution is one book for single women that won't approach you like you're unfinished. It's for those who are exhausted, frustrated, confused, or angry—who want relationships but don't deserve to be miserable in the meantime. 
     
    A grueling dating grind isn't a prerequisite for partnership. You can be happily single and still meet someone—that's allowed. It's possible to value your single time so much that you refuse to give it up for anything less than the amazing relationships you deserve. It's also possible to stop searching for them so relentlessly that you ignore every other aspect of your valid, beautiful life. This isn't a book about dating. It's a book about living. 
     
    You can choose how you feel about being single. You can choose to feel wrong, or you can choose to feel free. 
     
    A Single Revolution isn't about changing yourself—it's about changing your mind.
