    One thought on “Dating Makes You Want to Die: (But You Have to Do It Anyway)”

    1. I had to stop reading this book after the author blamed too many women going to law school for the reason he couldn t afford to buy a date dinner.

    2. Dating sucks So does this book.It thinks alcohol and only alcohol is a panacea I tried drinking in my 20s It tastes like piss and has no effect on me whatsoever.The authors suggest blind dates My parents met on one I ve offered people up to 500 to set me up with someone It has never happened I hate bars because they are loud and designed for extroverts who thrive on small talk I hate small talk I like big talk.The authors suggest online dating I ve had online profiles for over 8 years and never [...]

    3. It will probably be hard to explain why I snagged this at the library The cover and the title were amusing Morbid curiosity Probably a combination of the two Possibly for the same reason that I might pick up a pop social anthro book.Parts of it were amusing But maybe it s just that I m not a 20 something desperate single person living in NYC This seems to be the target audience Let s just say it s hard to tell how much was snark and how much was This is how to get into a relationship at all cost [...]

    4. Hey, are you a complete social retard who needs a book to tell you that you should probably bathe before you go on a date Then read this If you already possess this knowledge, buy a copy of this book to have on hand for your next awful date Not only will that person get the hint, they ll get it in unbearably dated, unintelligent yet flip prose It s fucking awful

    5. Ugh, dating DOES make me want to die But the good thing is these writers made me laugh out loud repeatedly, which is actually pretty rare for me when reading Also contains tips for moving in together and meeting the family of the significant other.

    6. While I ll admit that this book provided much laughter than honest to god dating advice, it was still very much worth reading even if only to remind us that yes, dating does suck, but it s not the worst thing that could possibly happen in the course of life Often witty, and even sometimes truly insightful, this book doesn t take itself too seriously the only true complaint I have is that it focused a bit too much on how large a role alcohol should factor into the matchmaking process which, to t [...]

    7. So I stopped reading at the breakup chaptere book was funny to be sure, but, not one of the best books I ve read on relationships The authors highly recommend drinking in every situation and every Chapter, and there is such a long list of things to remember, I felt rather exhausted, like I should be taking notes lest I forget one and become a dismal dating failure worse than I already am The book also talked about how much being single totally sucks in many hilarious ways , but I wish too that i [...]

    8. Funny at times, but not what I expected It actually takes you through the steps of dating all the way through marriage.While I understand it s written by a male and a female, the perspective switches sometimes the authors are speaking to a man your ex lover calls and wants to catch up she ll pay and sometimes they are speaking to a woman let him have a night with the boys I see why this is done, but really the book has a pink cover What man is going to read this

    9. FULL REVIEW AT THOSEDARNSOCKS.WORDPRESS Even though I am happily married, and have been for almost 4 years, I read this book and laughed out loud The title caught my attention, and also realized that Mr Holloway s father is married to my mom, so I was intrigued I found myself screen capping paragraphs of the book and sending it to my single friends and telling them they HAVE TO read this book 5 5 stars

    10. If you are single, and part of the oh so fun dating scene this is a must read It is laugh out loud funny Almost every chapter I could relate to the author and his humor about how dating SUCKS But, marriage doesn t look any better I m okay with being single single is great, and dating isn t that bad after all Dating makes for funny stories later on in life, and also makes for books like this one to give us single folk a breath of fresh air.

    11. Every other sentence had me bursting out in laughter, whether it was due to simply imagining the outrageous scenarios that they invented, or because I d actually been in a remarkably similar situation myself Rachel, Customer Services AssociateReserve a library copy

    12. i m nearly finished this one and i think my friend Alex has already given me the valuable advice contained herein i laughed aloud, a lot, because the writers are snippy and make cracks about the heart of our pop culture hang ups but, these quips e.g references to Lost also date the book, so read it soon

    13. I found this book strangely depressing I think that the authors were just a bit too hip and cynical and cool for me There wasn t much actual advice which apparently I need but there was a lot of Once you start dating someone you will shun all your friends and All sex will stop once you get married Sigh

    14. He s Just Not That Into You this book is not It s also not Men are From Mars, Women are from Venus or Mars and Venus on a Date It s like a pop culture based, relevant breakdown of the modern dating process.It s not THAT bad But, I d prefer Helen Fisher s slightly softcore anthropological research on dating than reading this book again.

    15. I ve never read a dating book before, and I can t imagine I ever will again, but I checked this one out for work and was pleasantly surprised It s scathingly funny and a quick read Definitely worth checking out whether you re single or not.

    16. This book is co authored by Dorothy Robinson, editor at Philly Metro Somebody update the entry It s actually funny It almost makes me wish I didn t come up with my If I know you personally and you get a book published you get five stars rule.

    17. This one really did make me LOL, actually belly laughing, at work, at my desk, while on hold, while reading it Great writing, it reminds me a little of SexInTheCity The reason for 4 stars and not 5 is, well its a dating book, dating will never rate 5 stars

    18. Very funny book Best part was the discussion, from both the male and female sides, of whether or not a man should pay for dinner.

    19. Picked this up for a few minutes in the bookstore and laughed out loud so many times, I felt conspicuous.

    20. absolutely hilarious so so tongue and cheek and cynical it brought a tear to my eye it DOES have some really good points, dished out in a beautifully sarcastic manner.

    21. I picked up this book because I understand the title on a spiritual level The title was the best part of this book I don t know why I read it.

    22. Annoying humor, trying way too hard, delivered little actual helpful information in short, a bad choice for one of my first self help books At least I got it from the library
