Singles Counselor Online Recommends New Book "Going Solo" by Eric Klinenberg as a Must Read

Last night on the Karel Show on KGO Radio in San Francisco, I heard a great interview of Eric Kinenberg whose new book sounds really interesting. It is called Going Solo the extraordinary rise and surprising appeal of living alone

He said that in San Francisco, 1 in every 3 households is a person living alone. In Manhattan, people living alone is 1 out of every 2. This is extraordinary!

Here is a small excerpt from the description of the book on Amazon.

"A revelatory examination of the most significant demographic shift since the Baby Boom—the sharp increase in the number of people who live alone—that offers surprising insights on the benefits of this epochal change

In 1950, only 22 percent of American adults were single. Today, more than 50 percent of American adults are single, and 31 million—roughly one out of every seven adults—live alone. People who live alone make up 28 percent of all U.S. households, which makes them more common than any other domestic unit, including the nuclear family. In GOING SOLO, renowned sociologist and author Eric Klinenberg proves that these numbers are more than just a passing trend. They are, in fact, evidence of the biggest demographic shift since the Baby Boom: . . ."

I recommend that you check out the book and perhaps buy it or find it at your library. The interview was fascinating.

Do you have a mental health, emotional or relationship issue you would like like some feedback on, guidance, or a second opinion from a professional counselor?

Why talk to anyone else when you can talk to Roland who is the author of 12 books and has 22 years experience advising on relationship and marriage issues. His radio advice program has been on the air 22 years.

"I'm a counselor and an ordained minister too." says Roland who has an earned MS in Human Relations and a Doctorate in Pastoral Psychology.

And I make myself available to people on the internet. I've been helping people via my radio program, books, articles, and private counsel for 22 years.

Many people want to talk to someone. They want to tell someone about something they want to get off their mind. They want to start moving forward. They want a person who is concerned, trustworthy, and sincere.

But they don't want to talk to just "someone" like some unknown counselor, prayer partner or faceless person. They don't want to talk to someone who is just getting started and doesn't have the wisdom and understanding of years. They want to talk to someone who has experience and who is mature. Someone solid and with some authority.

Others want to talk now and not next week. Some people are home bound. Some people want to get started now. They also like to be able to pick someone they are comfortable with.

It is for this reason that I am here.


You don't have to be a Christian to talk to me. I'm just interested in solutions, recovery, optimal living and solving issues.

LinkRoland, I'm interested. Tell me more.

" I have found that most people on the internet don't want spend much or anything at all. People want things for free. I have so many free self help resources (and I have for 22 years) - it is amazing. But I cannot give away professional counseling. I rely solely on the donations of visitors and listeners.

People are looking for real meaningful answers from a professional. I can't give it away - if I do I would soon be out of money. Plus free seems to invite pranksters and people who are not serious.

There has to be a solution, and there is. I devote some time each day to helping people and answering questions for a donation. (Even $5 helps pay for the chat service).


So get your answer and help me too. It's a win win.

How much do people donate?

Most people donate $15 or $20 for up to half an hour. Some people are generous and donate more. Others have a very tight budget and can only donate $5 or 10$.



Prefer Pay as You Go?
  • If you want to remain anonymous, where even the expert doesn't know who you are, then LivePerson is also for you.

Option Two

  • Prefer email? Send me an email, tell me you want relationship or marriage advice for a donation. Briefly state your issue and I will respond. (you must be 19, no emergencies).

Why are you waiting, get started today. Leave behind the baggage of the past and move forward to joy.
