One: No Longer The Loneliest Number

By Joshua Glenn
The Boston Globe - August 28, 2005

IN THE mid-1990s, E.

None of her interviewees, however, had managed to do so. But when she recently reinterviewed 27 never-married (or "ever-single") women from that earlier study, she discovered that most of them had since found emotional satisfaction, sexual fulfillment, and companionship outside of coupledom.
