How to Treat Valentine’s Day if You are a Single Woman

When In Manila, there are so many single, never-married, beautiful women out there. But why is it that all these lovelies still aren’t taken in marriage?  Orpah Marasigan, comes out with a book that I am most definite most single women could relate to.

“Why is There  a Man and He’s Not Mine” is a candid inspiring book that tackles the longings of single females.


Taken from the backcover of the book, most could relate to the dreaded question … “Why aren’t you married yet?”


Only a single woman would know the deep pain this question evokes in her heart.  When it makes her feel that something’s wrong with her, or when it pressures her into thinking that she might not have tried hard enough to get married, this question pushes the single woman deeper into loneliness, anger, and even depression.

Why Is There a Man and He’s Not Mine? is just one of the many real and authentic questions Orpah asks in her book.  She courageously shares her journey as a single women in a married couple’s world.  She has found that, like her, many single women struggle with :

  • The pain of waiting
  • Living with a wounded heart
  • The temptation of illicit love
  • Dealing with jerks
  • The perils of e-dating
  • And how to treat special occasions like Christmas, Valentines Day and Weddings

Orpah walks with singles as their companion, offering hope, wisdom and practical advice to help them navigate their way through the challenges posed by the single life.  She also joyously shares how her life has been exciting, colorful and fun!


Orpah had her book launch at Power Books Greenbelt 4 which was delightfully attended by many.  You could see how charming she was and I’m sure you will be enchanted with this book as writer behind it is.
