I typeset the titlepage and its verso, but it always generate an empty page on the right if facing. My codes are as follows:

\setupinteraction
  [state=stop,
   title=Life in These Days,
   author=Tim Li]
\setupinteractionscreen
  [option=doublesided]

\usetypescript[palatino]
\setupbodyfont[palatino,12pt]

\setuppagenumbering
  [location={footer,middle},
   alternative=doublesided]

\setupmakeup
  [standard]
  [pagestate=start]

\starttext
\startfrontmatter
% titlepage
\startmakeup[standard][doublesided=no]
\vskip2in
\midaligned{\switchtobodyfont[36pt]\bf Life in These Days}
\vfill
\midaligned{\switchtobodyfont[20pt]\bf Tim Li}
\blank[medium]
\midaligned{\switchtobodyfont[20pt]\bf January 11, 2013}
\stopmakeup
% its verso
\startmakeup[standard]
This document was typeset by using \CONTEXT.
\vfill
\stopmakeup
\stopfrontmatter

\startbodymatter
% 
\stopbodymatter
\stoptext

If add [doubesided=no] to the first \startmakeup[standard] that produce the titlepage, it will produce a page with page number 2 at the right of the titlepage and the verso of this titlepage will be the next page following page 2. That's not what I want.

How to set the options of the \startmakeup so that I can typeset the titlepage with its verso just after it. If so, when printing the document, the titlepage and its verso will be presented on the same paper.


Edit: As Wolfgang said, we should set the makeup as follows

\setupmakeup
  [standard]
  [pagestate=start,
   page=yes]

\starttext
\startfrontmatter
\startmakeup[standard][doublesided=no]
% write your titlepage here
\stopmakeup
\startmakup[standard]
% write its verso here
\stopmakeup
% dedication, preface, contents ...
\stopfrontmatter
\startbodypart
% ...
\stopbodypart
\startbackmatter
% ...
\stopbackmatter
\stoptext

This is what I want.

If what Wolfgang says is a working solution, it is better to post it as an answer and self-accept. This way, the question goes off the 'unanswered' list. NB: Posting an answer to your own question is explicitly encouraged. –  Esteis Apr 17 '13 at 14:36

@Esteis ok, I will. –  Timothy Li Apr 17 '13 at 14:47
    
Good-oh. You might as well accept it, too, because I don't think any competing answers are forthcoming. :-) –  Esteis Apr 18 '13 at 22:22

@Esteis Ok, now. At that time, I have to wait for another 23 hours. –  Timothy Li Apr 19 '13 at 9:30

This is Wolfgang's idea. I am only the lucky dog to typeset these codes here.

\setupmakeup
  [standard]
  [pagestate=start,
   page=yes]

\starttext
\startfrontmatter
\startmakeup[standard][doublesided=no]
% write your titlepage here
\stopmakeup
\startmakup[standard]
% write its verso here
\stopmakeup
% dedication, preface, contents ...
\stopfrontmatter
\startbodypart
% ...
\stopbodypart
\startbackmatter
% ...
\stopbackmatter
\stoptext
