Catch up on her latest conversations, or simulate a live chat with the self-titled “seriously single (and bitter) girl” herself by checking out one of her voice posts.

Single With Attitude
Attacking singledom from a new angle, this blog doesn’t offer combat strategies to survive single struggles, nor does it console those mourning their single status. Single With Attitude is all about being single and being more than OK with it. Not every blogger is armed with “attitude,” and not all of the blog’s followers are single. The common attraction is an enlightened enthusiasm for embracing the single life, rather than stigmatizing it.

Her premiere blogging endeavor, Single Gal In The City, designated her as a leading lady in the dating and relationship advice industry.

The Single Girl Survival Guide
The Single Girl Survival Guide was brought to readers not by an expert, but by someone new to the single game and in need of her girlfriends.

If you’re single, or if you’ve caught the guy but still need your girls, The Single Girl Survival Guide is the ultimate female support group.
It doesn’t matter if you’re single and searching, soon-to-be single or a single individual somewhere in between — you can count on the wisdom of these masters to guide you through the ups and downs of relationships (or lack thereof).
