Description - Dating Makes You Want to Die by Daniel Holloway

In more innocent times, courtship was a simpler affair. An earnest boy would come over to "call," and he and the young, dainty miss would sit on the front porch and hold hands. Six months later, he would ask her father for her hand and just like that, they lived happily ever after. But happily ever after isn't so easy anymore. It's all terror, loneliness, and visits to your therapist. The ritual of courtship has been replaced by the ritual of obsessively updating your Match.com profile. The young, dainty miss on the front porch is now a bitchy dragon woman in middle management who would rather make a spreadsheet than track down a boyfriend.The earnest boy now has hair plugs and desperately tries to bang anything that moves in heels. And yet, the desire to find someone still resonates in our dark and disaffected souls. Intelligent, snarky, and entertaining, "Dating Makes You Want to Die" is the ideal dating book for a new generation. Chapters such as 'A Fortress Unto Itself: The Single', 'We Are In Love (Maybe)', and 'The Death of Romance (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Paying Half As Much Rent)', all give advice on how to get through the twisted and disheartening journey. This title includes hilarious sidebars and quizzes to further help the reader prepare for the jungle out there.
