As I began reading the book I was ready to claim I am a uirkyalone For as defined uirkyalone n a person who enjoys being single but is not opposed to being in a relationship and generally prefers to be alone rather than date for the sake of being in a couple With uniue traits and an optimistic spirit a sensibility that transcends relationship statusIt s a wonderful definition I ll be proud to claim I m a uirkyalone But I guess I am not a true blue uirkyaloneThe word was coined by the author Sasha Cagen when she was writing for a community paper She came up with a short article about being single and being okay with it and then she termed single people male or female uirkyaloneThe book presented the different facets of uirkyalone The different experiences one would encounter At first it seems enlightening But I get through the pages I realized how pushy the book is about the concept of being a uirkyalone and how wonderful it is to be oneThey say uirkyalone is a movement Yes It seems like a movement A movement with norms and rules you must follow to fit in The book explained it all And there I realized I cannot be like themuirkyalone uirkytogether uirkysluts EtcThere were some points being discussed which I find unacceptable and the way it was presented in the book made it even unreasonable I was expecting a tongue in cheek presentation but the book turned out to be preachy At least for my own definitionGoing through each pages I felt like having to tick all the rules being set to determine if I belong to the movement There were so much do s and don ts which I think is not proper I think it should be considered signs of being a uirkyalone rather than setting the standards to be ualified as suchStories such as marrying oneself were also discussed I believe in loving yourself and seeing your value as an individual before going into coupledom but marrying yourself What for To assure yourself that you re not going to be cheated To assure yourself that you and yourself will be together forever I don t want to judge those who went through the ceremony but I just think it s unnecessary Yes it s a sign of strength And bravo the union of women for standing up for what they want But is it necessary for me to marry myself to ualify as a uirkyalone No But the book made me feel like yesThere were also married couples but decided to be uirky together they don t sleep beside each other they do their own thing without having to consult their partner etc These are few of the stories which I find absurd What is marriage Why marry someone when you don t intend to be one in life I don t find it necessary to be in a relationship to be completed but I am in complete agreement to the concept of marriage and the union of individuals I understand the concept of singlehood as much as I completely agree with the concept of marriage I just think it s unreasonable to marry someone and still act or worse think as single Should I go against my partner to be uirkytogether No But the book tells me I shouldYes I love the fact that they differentiate alone from solitude Yes I love my friends and they help me get through singlehood happily Yes I love my me time Yes I don t go out on dates and yes I wonder if I am living singlehood right But then why does it seem like I don t ualify as a uirkyaloneI could have appreciated the book if it didn t appeal to me as preachy and self serving I agree with the glory for singlehood But I think it s not good to read something that appears to be too self serving Single people are wonderful individuals and singlehood is no bed of roses Of course we want to be glorified and acknowledged as individual But is it necessary to tell that to a fellow single person too I agree with the message the book is trying to impart and I guess the fact that I cannot claim myself a uirkyalone made the book irrelevant to me Disrupted My Misadventure in the Start Up Bubble of the discerning singles everywhere–the uirkyaloneThere was a time when a single woman Microsoft Office Excel 2007 for Project Managers over 25 was called an Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly old maid Mothers fretted these unfortunate creatures might.

Sasha Cagen í 8 review Free read ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF í Sasha Cagen Summary uirkyalone A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics E counterpart Defining singledom as a natural resting state for uirkyalones Cagen's guide is the best kind of self–empowerment incisive savvy hilarious Eual parts self–help and hilarious pop culture uirkyAlone is self–empowerment for the wise people of the world Including uizzes lists it's not–your–average–relationship–boo. ah I liked the article in Utne Reader I really wanted to like the book but I m sorry it just seemed like the publishers said to Sasha Cagen Hey can you fill up 150 pages of stuff like that article you wrote and everyone liked And she was all like Sure And then she made it super perky and chucked in loads of cutesy pictures and doodles to fill up all of the acres of empty space and then sprinkled it with Gen X pop culture references and lists like famous best friends which includes pairs like those friends from Seinfeld and Will and Grace sitting next to names like James Watson and Francis Crick who um weren t best friends And then there s loads of stuff about As being idealists who will hold out their entire lives as singletons rather than settle for a partner who doesn t really understand them but then again another aspect of a A may be realism about relationships and an appreciation for various relationships in our lives ones that don t necessarily have to be lifelong For some there s nothing wrong with the idea of having various partners over the course of a lifetime UM So really some people hold out and some don t Some are realists some are idealists Cagen tries so hard to get people to feel in on her movement that A ends up meaning basically anyone who isn t completely devastated by the idea of not being in a romantic relationship 100% of the time Which excuse me if I m wrong is probably a large majority of the population And not the 5% she uotes but seems to have plucked out of the airI mean maybe this book would have meant if it came out in 1979 Or even 1992 But there s something kind of weird about it coming out in 2004 For example the following slightly paraphrased for brevity passageSome As get married On the other hand some may even feel repulsed by the trappings of traditional marriage an institution rooted in the idea of a woman as property that devalues friendship and elevates the sexual relationship above all elseEr I was in my 20s in 2004 and I don t think I knew one couple in which a man viewed his female partner as property And every rom com since When Harry Met Sally has been about a woman finding a man who is her best friend So what s going on here chicky Don t get me wrong there are plenty of issues with malefemale relationships in this day and age but the definition of As as a movement in opposition to some kind of 1950s Donna Reed version of reality that Cagen is calling mainstream culture didn t really wash with me I left the book feeling like it was one big hey it s okay that you re still single girlfriend because lovefest rather than an intelligent exploration what it means to be someone who unlike Cagen by her own admission did not spent their youth scanning NYE parties for someone anyone to kissAlso although I am a girl like many men commenting here I really really resent the female bent of this book There are a lot of men who are just as stigmatised by their family and friends for not getting married or not having a serious relationship Why are they far rare Just because Cagen did a self selecting informal survey in a magazine once and 60% of casual respondees were women Is that an excuse to treat this book like a how to love yourself guide for women who haven t yet had any luck in the dating world So unfairAt any rate there was a book before this one about real uirkyalones It was written in 1942 and it is called The Outsider by Colin Wilson I suggest you read that instead of this fluffy brainless tripe
