About the book:
Whether you're falling for that man child for the fifty-seventh time or text messaging your way to stalker status, dating can make you want to find a nice roomy hermitage on Airbnb and live a solitary, monk-like life.
Luckily, that frustration ends now.
This Is Why You're Single breaks away from your typical dating guide by taking a page from Aesop's playbook with hilarious modern-day dating fables paired with advice, entertaining quizzes, graphs, and illustrations.
Just how your childhood teacher read you the story of “The Tortoise and the Hare” (rather than bluntly tell you not to be a cocky little shit), This Is Why You're Single teaches dating “morals” through stories – some familiar and some less familiar:
Meeting with a private eye to background check a date
Being confronted at an intervention for your FOMO
Watching a breaking news report about the migration patterns of single women
Getting escorted out of Forever 21 by bouncers
Joining a coup d’etat to overthrow an oppressive regime that dictates sexual etiquette
Listening to a pitch from advertising executives rebranding your dating profile
Whether you're looking to lock down that second date, third marriage, eight-seventh text message, or first three-way, the morals you take away from each chapter will make dating a whole lot more doable, a little less weird and, well, actually pretty fun.
