Single on Long Island: Meeting Other Singles and Finding the One

The Problem:

     Being single on Long Island, New York, can be difficult for those singles who are hoping to find a partner.  The Island is a suburb of Manhattan, and seems to scream “Married with children!”

The Solution:

     While Long Island has the appearance of being very “coupled,” indeed, there are many singles living there, some 700,000 as a matter of fact. 

       There are dozens of places and venues for singles of all ages to meet like-minded, similarly-aged partners.  And there are methods available to reduce the confusion, apprehensions and social anxiety often inherent in trying to avail oneself of all of these opportunities to meet others.

The Book:

       In Single on Long Island: Meeting Other Singles and Finding the One, Dr. Sherry Henig shares her research into the Long Island singles scene and offers evidence to demonstrate that there are, indeed, lots of single adults on Long Island and that they can successfully meet others through a large variety of venues.  She explores and troubleshoots the trepidations and apprehensions that many singles have with regard to “getting out there” and meeting others.  She offers an abundance of information to help those who are single feel more comfortable and confident about dating on Long Island.
