According to today’s podcast guest, being single does not mean being broken, lonely, or desperate. And whether or not you already knew that, it can feel like society at large is sending us another message.

I rarely talk about matters of relationships on the podcast – mostly because I’m certainly no expert there – but I’ve been eager to broach the topic, and felt that Acamea Deadwiler, author and all round badass, would be the perfect guest to have on the show.

This podcast is also being released as we approach holiday season, a time of year I can attest is particularly difficult for those of us who are not in relationships. I hope you find Acamea’s words as comforting and inspiring as I did.

What we discussed

Why women in particular suffer from the stigma of being single
The challenges that single introverts face in dating
How to handle being single at the holidays
Pros and cons of online dating
