Once upon a time in America, marriage was the norm. But now, for the first time since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking these numbers in 1976, there are more single Americans than married — a total of about 50.2%, or 124.6 million American adults are single.

Just as the single life overtakes marriage in the United States, a new book from McFarland Publishers hits the market. I'm Not Single, I Have a Dog: Dating Tales From The Bark Side is the perfect holiday gift for singles, anyone who ever dated the wrong person (and who hasn’t?), and the 63.4 million Americans who love their dogs. Celebrating the human/canine bond, this thoughtful and funny memoir is about acceptance, love, and finding your own happily ever after.
