Over the course of many years writing about single life, I have found that readers are very interested in the experiences of single people in places beyond the U.S. So am I, but I don’t know nearly as much as I would like to. I have had some help with that from guest bloggers. Also, when relevant articles appear in the news, I blog about them.

Below are some of the articles that have appeared on my various blogs about the experiences of single people in various countries around the world. Happily, most reports are trending positive.
