A little help from my friends and readers...

I have written on many occasions that I have made a return to school to finish my degree (and often complained about the accompanying workload).  I am currently taking a sociology class, which I am very much enjoying.  The class includes a final paper and presentation on a topic of our choice.  It may come as no surprise that I have chosen singlism as my topic. 

Singlism is a term coined by Bella DePaulo and can be summed up as "the stigmatizing of adults who are single."  For a more indepth discussion of the word please read her post on the Psychology Today website:  Singlism: What It Is and Is Not and Why It Should Be in the Dictionary

As part of my project for the class I am conducting a short survey on people's experience with singlism, if any.   I am hoping that those of my readers who are currently single can help me out by participating in the survey.  It is only a few questions and is anonymous.  

I will be sharing the results here on the blog as well as presenting them in class.  

Take the singlism survey!!

Thank you so much for helping out!
