Introducing Single at HeartUnless you’re a young adult, many times people look upon the single life as one without or lacking something. After all, the thinking of these people goes, what is life without a partner to share it with?

But that’s a misconception. Life is beautiful whether or not you are in a relationship with another person. The single life is especially exquisite, because you live by your own principles and precepts — not someone else’s.

So I’m happy to introduce our newest blog, Single at Heart, by Bella DePaulo, Ph.D. Dr. DePaulo is an expert on single life, is the author of several books, including Singled Out: How Singles Are Stereotyped, Stigmatized, and Ignored, and Still Live Happily Ever After and Singlism: What It Is, Why It Matters, and How to Stop It. Dr. DePaulo has discussed singles and single life on radio and television, including NPR and CNN, and her work has been described in newspapers such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, among many others.

You can learn more about Dr. DePaulo here. Please give her a warm Psych Central welcome over on her blog today!
