Also it applies more readily to folks who are in relationships -- just not primary-style (or primary-track) ones.
That's true. Now that I've given it more thought, you're right. Lots of positive framing of the word "solo" as well - like "flying solo", being a "soloist" at a concert etc. So, it's not a biggie. I need to go check out your blog!
