Reminder: The solo rooms on the Norwegian Cruise lines huge new ship, the Epic, are terrific. Tiny, but lovely. And the halls are lighted in neon, and there's a separate lounge just for solos ---and NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT! This is a first for a major cruiseline, and hopefully the start of a new trend.

A SOLO GOLF TRIP to the DORAL MARRIOTT in MIAMI from a SOLOLADY READER/GOLFER
Golf at the Doral Marriott Resort and Spa in Miami is legendary â€“ and because a forecaddie is included in the greens fees at its famed TPC Blue Monster course, golfing alone at Doral is not only a high-end experience, it’s social.

Our Solo Lady Romance Novel
And right on our site you can read Cruise to Seduction, our very own, very sexy romance about frustrated food writer Amanda, dashing CEO Jake, and emerald-laden sexpot Caren. The scene moves on tropical seas to ports in Key West, the Yucatan/Cozumel, and the Caymen Islands, and post-cruise, back to a Sex-in the-City kind of Manhattan. This original novel is published only here on Solo Lady. Even if you don't normally read chick lit novels, do try ours. It's a delicious read -- light, lively and fun, with a great cruise and solo travel backdrop. Romance and travel writer Alys Bohn (a solo mom) and our own Solo Lady, Lea Lane, co- wrote it with you in mind, and we hope you enjoy it!

Who You Are
Over half of adult women are not married in the U.S, and there are more single households than married. And we're a growing demographic all over the world!
The trend of singledom is due in part to our living longer, marrying later, or choosing to live solo. In fact, Solo Lady's motto could be: "I'd much rather be on my own ... than wish I were!" Whether never-married, separated, divorced or widowed, newly solo or always solo, young or old, straight or gay; whether or not you're a mom, dating, or in a relationship, whether you live alone or with others -- single women world-wide, you've found your home.
