The Art of Living Alone


good post

Writer. Editor. Storyteller.

I loved this morning’s episode of Where We Live, which was all about living alone. Here’s a little background:

In the 1950s, less than a quarter of American adults were single. Today – that number is up to about half.

But when we say “single” – we mean not part of a couple. A different – and slightly antique-sounding term – “singleton” means people who live by themselves. That number is up to some 31 million Americans.

I weighed in on this trend a few weeks back in my Singleton post. But in that quick post I didn’t say anything about why I think living alone, at least for a little while, is important.
