A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics
By Sasha Cagen

      Quirkyalone (2000) n. A person who enjoys being single (but is not opposed to being in a relationship) and generally prefers to be alone rather than date for the sake of being in a couple. With unique traits an optimistic spirit; a sensibility that transcends relationship status. She also: romantic, wistful, idealist, independent.

      I knew from the start by reading the above definition I had found my type of book. At long last, I had a description of myself to give friends and family. It was thrilling to discover there are others in the world that shares this trait. In reading their interviews, I was amazed at the similarities each of us had in common. We shared similar jobs, hobbies, and interests. This book did a superb job in exploring what it truly means to be a quirkalone. Overflowing with interviews, examples, and memorable quotes, it gives the reader an in-depth explanation on why these unique individuals walk a very distinctive path.

       After I finished reading this book I felt it provided me a greater sense of who I truly am, and the fulfillment was unspeakable. It provided me insight that showed how it is perfectly acceptable to follow my own inner voice and live the life I was meant to follow. Very highly recommended.
