BACKGROUND: The newly single man may be attending a consultation for an issue related to the end of a relationship, or he may present for a totally unrelated physical reason. The consultation with a newly single man presents an opportunity to engage in health promotion activities.

OBJECTIVE: Issues relevant to three discrete age groups: 14–25, 26–45, and 46–70 years, will be discussed and interventions will be outlined.

DISCUSSION: Health issues will vary according to the life stage and the age of the man as well as his personal circumstances. However, issues surrounding mental health (including suicidality), drug use (including tobacco and alcohol), and sexual health are pertinent and the presentation provides the general practitioner with the opportunity to raise these issues and encourage discussion.
