This is a book that I've been waiting for someone to write, and Megan was the perfect person to write it! With humor and insight, she disrupts the narratives that are used to hold unpartnered people back and dares us to reimagine singledom. Playing Without a Partner debunks one of the most insidious myths about the solo life--the idea that you don't have access to intimacy. This book serves as a reminder that the most important relationship you'll ever have is with yourself, so make sure it's a good one!
