What’s a quirkyalone?

You have landed on the online home of the quirkyalone movement!
A quirkyalone is a person who enjoys being single (or spending time alone) and so prefers to wait for the right person to come along rather than dating indiscriminately. Quirkyalones prefer to be single rather than settle.
Quirkyalones can also be married or in a committed relationship (quirkytogether). You can be a man or a woman, any age. Quirkyalone is ultimately a philosophy about finding happiness within yourself whether you’re single or in a relationship.

Support Quirkyalone

Have you gotten value from quirkyalone? Made new friends or learned to love yourself more no matter your relationship status? Learned to love your quirks?! Avoiding falling for a dating advice scam?!

Quirkyalone is free to the public but it's not free to produce. For over 16 years we have promoted this empowering perspective for people who prefer to be single rather than settle. We do this work out of passion and we can do more with your support.

Your support helps to pay for newsletter and web hosting costs, time writing and editing newsletters, supporting local meet ups, time promoting this concept to others through the media, and much more.
