Single is the New Black presents a new angle sorely needed in the self-help/relationship genre – one that counteracts the tired, clichéd messages women typically field, e.g. "You're too picky!You're too needy! You're too neurotic, which is why you aren't married." Single is the New Black emboldens, rather than blames, and encourages women to stay true to themselves, remain strong, and never settle.It asserts that single women are smart, sexy, savvy "catches" that will eventually get "caught". They aren't screwed up and they can stop berating themselves for being single – it just hasn't happened yet – which is perfectly fine because single is the new black! In Single is the New Black, Dr.Karin shares both relationship expertise and wisdom gleaned from her 27 year son the dating scene. Readers feel her empathy as one who's "been there, done that", while also finding inspiration in the fact that Dr. Karin refused to settle and eventually met and married The One.

"I just got your book and read it cover to cover and loved it! Your book addressed a lot of my concerns and put me at ease."
Rebecca, New York
"I love your book. I am a high school teacher and I just turned 35. I am still single, and very proud and happy with my life the way it is. I really like the male perspective Guy provides. It's nice to know that men have a tough time meeting girls, too. Although we are out here!!Thanks for an awesome and helpful book!"
"I read your book and loved it! I've been single for a while now and have worked long and hard at my own sense of self and creating an independent life of my own. I had a history of abusive controlling relationships, so, for me, that meant taking some time on my own to get to know who I am."
"Single is the New Black is awesome. It's an incredibly refreshing read, especially for someone who has read and talked about the topic in both academic and nonacademic arenas."
"The book really resonated with me and provided a different perspective for why I am having certain feelings and pressures as a young professional, entering an age where my friends are all getting married or in serious relationships."
"Thank you for writing such a fantastic and insightful book! I loved it! Every page made me feel better and better. For years I've bristled with resentment when my mother or some other well-meaning person tsk-tsks over me not being married with a kid. I hate it! Men are not usually pressured to be married, but people think we women are just big fat losers without a man. Your book gave me the necessary weapons and armor I needed to defend myself against such tsk-tsks."
"Thank you for making me laugh and cheering me up. I am passing your book on to all my single girlfriends AND their mothers."
