I often ask myself, ‘how many people in Atlanta are actually in healthy and happy relationships?’ Being an African-American woman where there are news reports reminding me or suggesting to me that I’ll never find a suitable mate of the same race, I find myself feeling bummed about it at times. So, I’m really looking forward to hearing how Blane Bachelor was able to ditch the meaning of her last name – ‘Bachelor’, going from ‘singledom’ to ‘wedded bliss’. I’m currently not in a relationship; however I would love to be in one, so I look forward to her tips.
Blane is an internationally published writer and author of On Being a Bachelor: Thoughts on Dating, Mating and Relating. Her book was inspired by her popular and long-running column in The Sunday Paper, an alternative weekly newspaper in Atlanta. Blane has written hundreds of articles and columns about dating, relationships, travel and pop culture for outlets including Marie Claire, Women’s Health, People.com, Modern Bride, Zink!, the Christian Science Monitor and USA Today.
