Our Magazine for Singles
Singular magazine and its affiliated online community for singles at SingularCity.com were created for unmarried people who enjoy a social, yet independent lifestyle, and who, at the present time, are the sole proprietor of their lives. We coined the word “singular” to describe this fresh, new view of what it means to be single: dynamic, active and open to adventure.
Singular magazine readers and the members of the SingularCity singles network are active professionals, creative types and those interested in finding like-minded individuals who appreciate having a magazine created just for them – one that recognizes both the unique challenges and the benefits of living single. Singular magazine is published weekly with original content, created by top writers and photographers, exclusively for single people.
The online community for singles at SingularCity provides a platform for online and offline activities, events, friendship, networking and even romance. Whether your interest is travel, sports, the arts, dining, wines, entertainment, philosophy, self-improvement, dating tips, single parenting and more, you’ll find new friends and meet interesting people in our SingularCity community.
