This work is a hilarious look at one guy's transformation from ladies' man to one lady's main man. From the moment he sees his future wife across a smoke-filled, beer-fuelled Uni party, Michael Crider has a strong feeling that his single days are numbered. In between that moment of early understanding and his sweaty presence at the altar several years later, however, Crider mis-steps, stalls and resists the inevitable like a true man's man. Remembering his evolution from swinging singleton to linked-for-life, Crider chronicles the highs and lows of relationship progress: from the nauseating dating days of "No, I love you more!", to his own embarrassing version of "Meet the Parents"; from plotting his own marriage proposal to the wedding and reception itself. For men under pressure to propose of newly affianced, newlywed or veteran to the husband hustle, Michael Crider's flawed attempts at both grand romantic gestures and small attempts to control his fate will be all too familiar.
Refreshingly honest and laugh-out-loud funny, "The Slow and Inevitable Crawl Toward Happily Ever After" should also appeal to the long-suffering women in their lives who, for better or worse, recognize their men in its pages.
