Dorothy Cummings is the real thing: A serious young Catholic woman determined to remain true to her faith?s moral teachings no matter what. Convinced to turn her delightful blogs into a book, she gives voice to those like her who seek life-partners amid today?s dating jungle. With sections such as: No Sex in the City ; The Caffeine in the Cappuccino of Life ; and A Catholic?s Rules about Dating, the book is witty and accessible. Set in the United States, Canada and Europe, it is an intelligent take on the contemporary dating scene for women of faith. She writes with characteristic aplomb about the state of single blessedness and advocates that young women stop worrying and learn to love the single life. Wise, funny, insightful, and at turns poignant, Seraphic Singles is a must-read for young Catholic women negotiating the fine balance between dating and faith. And it holds delightful lessons for everyone else."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stories worth reading Dorothy Cummings, in this charming volume, relates short stories taken (mostly) from her own experiences, and proves herself a fine storyteller thereby. Together, these vignettes grant a dignified view on the life of one who deliberately seeks a happy relationship with Singleness --- who seeks to be, as it were, a Seraphic Single. And, without falsely setting herself up as exemplar of seraphic singleness, she shows through her writing how beautiful is the ideal itself of serenity in the single state. Ms. Cummings writes with flair and conviction, and is not afraid to speak contrary to fashionable notions; but she also manages to instill this book with an endearing intimate humility. And she proves more than equal to the task of telling us other peoples' stories, too, which is very good because a Single person is often in danger of forgetting that there are other people with stories to tell. If you are single, if you have been single and unhappy about it, if people have bugged you about being single, if you know any singles, (in short, if you're anyone at all!) this book is well worth reading: good for sage advice, good for tales of romance, good for a laugh! Get thee one and read it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hidden gem! I thoroughly enjoyed reading D. Cummings’s Seraphic Singles. It proved to be an energetic read filled with amusing anecdotes and satire about a Canadian, Catholic, 30 year old female student’s thoughts on single life while living in Boston. Between the gourmand intermezzos on certain pleasures such as cappuccinos and bitters, all the tough questions involving loneliness, expectations and scarring from past relationships are dealt with a dignified and courageous outlook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full of wit and wisdom for singles! After being a faithful reader of Ms. Cummings online work, I'm greatly anticipating this book which I trust will be just as entertaining and full of practical wisdom for those striving to live their singleness with greater peace!
