Search for resources for single people and you will probably be inundated with advice for becoming unsingle. That ends here! For years, I have been putting together resources for unapologetically single people — those who want to embrace their single lives, and are not whining about being single or trying to escape into coupledom.

Here you will find collections of books, blogs, talks, podcasts, discussion groups, advocacy groups, academic writings, practical resources, and more. I had already created collections of books, talks, blogs, and writings on many different topics; they are at the top of this post, with just one link for each to the relevant collection. Entries into the other categories are collected here for the first time; they come next.

I know there are many more resources that could be added to each category. Maybe there are some other categories that could be added, too. Feel free to add your suggestions.

Well, there were 63 when I first posted this at Medium. I have updated it since and will continue to do so.

TALKS

Not all of them are TED talks. If I found a singles-relevant talk I liked, I included it.
