1. The Case For Staying Single - MTP352 Scot McKay 44:59

Co-Host Peter McGraw (https://mountaintoppodcast.com/solo) Two episodes ago, we talked about how society is apparently keeping us single. This time, Dr. Peter McGraw returns to ask what’s necessarily wrong with that? Even though more than fifty percent of American adults are single, there’s still somehow a stigma associated with it. However, Peter isn’t only among that majority of single adults, he’s happily unhitched. And if you think about it, if the stereotype about us as men is how we go out of our way to avoid marriage, where’s the bad rap coming from? Well, prepare for some shocking news from Peter, because despite his own personal optimism, most singles even nowadays really do wish they were in a relationship. Or do they only think they wish they were in a relationship? How can we know the difference as pertaining to our own life? And if it’s true we happen to be in the relative minority who actually want to stay single, how do we go about living that dream the way Peter does? So, is marriage really a social relic of the past that we can’t seem to shake off as a culture? Or is it more like marriage came along relatively recently in human history as part of the evolutionary cycle of culture? As for single people themselves, they’re not all alike. Peter has identified at least four different kinds of singles, and he explains all. Along with that, isn’t there a big difference between lonely and bitter vs. happily free and playing the field for a season? And if you ARE going to be single–by choice or otherwise–what are some key, and perhaps unexpected ideas and strategies you’re going to have to keep in mind? Most of all, how do you live a remarkable life, whether married or single?

Scot McKay Dating Strategist

Scot McKay has shared bad jokes with North Korean military officers, sipped coffee at Pablo Escobar’s home (served by his maid), survived a shark attack while surfing, held his breath as the pride of lions walked by his tent, and blitzed through California canyons with his knee on the double-yellow line at 140 mph. Yet somehow, he has also been referred to as the “sane one” on Twitter by Scott Adams, of all people.

But despite once being mobbed by the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, being able to back a 30′ travel trailer into its slot on the first try, and that time he beat the World Champion at his own sport (no details provided), he’s still the most objective and down-to-earth dating expert out there.

He’s also the most fluff-free fountainhead of original content in his field, if only because that’s what seventeen years of immersive geekery on the subject does for someone.

Scot’s wife Emily is his “proof of concept”, given that she’s just as sweet as she is smokin’ hot and still gets carded at her age. But you’ll never hear her brag about any of that, only Scot.

His show The Mountain Top has also been named a Top 10 Dating Podcast by DatingAdvice.com, and a long time ago Grader.com weirdly ranked Scot the #1 most influential Facebook user in the world.
