Degrees Single™ explores the social forces, experiences, and perceptions of being single.
There are levels to being single. There are literally different stages, degrees, and perspectives of being single. It is more than not being married or not having a significant other. Singleness is a multi-faceted, ever-evolving part of life. None of us do “single” the same. None of us see “single” the same. Degrees Single™ aims to explore singleness from various viewpoints.
Degrees Single™ shares my perspective as a single, Black, twenty-something year old woman. I am no relationship expert or guru by any means. But I am a woman who has become very insightful about being single through my own experiences, constant reflection, and engaging dialogue. I have never not enjoyed being single. (That’s grammatically incorrect on purpose.) I may enjoy it too much at times. Time has made me more aware of singleness, how it looks, and how different people navigate that place in their life. I am intrigued by singleness and very vocal about it! Please do not mistake my discourse about being single as being against relationships and marriage. I am here for it! But if you can’t fully enjoy being single, how equipped are you for a relationship?
