Q. What is Single Matters?

Q. What is Single Matters?

Single Matters is a webzine for men and women who seek to find encouragement for the single season of life—the only resource of its kind for the person who is single again (through divorce or death of a spouse) and those in the over-30 “still single” status. On the website you’ll find articles arranged in four key areas of interest to single people: Relationships, Being Single, Faith and Life. We hope to address the matters of the single person’s heart and offer articles that answer the questions for the challenges that come along with being single. The articles are so good … even married people will want to visit!
