My name is Craig, and I'm a writer and teacher. But more importantly, I am a happy bachelor. Being a happy bachelor is a skill that didn't come easily to me. In 2015, after a romantic relationship came to an end, I was in the dumps about being single. In my sadness, I was Googling "being single," and I popped up on a website from Bella DePaulo. I spent the next couple of hours scaling down the rabbit hole of DePaulo's work on singlehood, and I learned about the terms "singlism" and "matrimania." The former is the negative stigma and stereotypes around being single, and the latter is the societal obsession over marriage and weddings. I read a bunch of her books, and her work inspired me to write and research about singlism. Four years later, as of this writing, I've learned to embrace and enjoy being single, and I currently have a book under contract with Kendall-Hunt press called How to be a Happy Bachelor. This site will provide my own observations, anecdotes, advice, and takes on all things related to singlehood. Some are cheerful, and others, as my publisher, Curtis Ross, calls it "bring the snark." There's something for all genders here, but I primarily write from the male point-of-view. Enjoy!
