With the abundance of dating strategies, technologies, and services available on the market today, is it any easier to find love? In this hilarious and heart-warming book, Stacy Kravetz samples the merchandise and discovers that—impressive technological advances aside—the search for true love is never simple.
From “lock and key” parties, where men try their keys in women’s locks until—well, you get the picture—to “date doctors,” who, for a fee, will evaluate your techniques and tell you where your sales pitch is going wrong, Kravetz takes readers on a fascinating tour of the world of twenty-first-century romance. Drawing on interviews with a host of men and women currently grappling with finding a mate, as well as her own experiences out in the playing field, Kravetz explores what our dating lives reveal about us and our culture. And all the while, she vividly captures how—though the landscape of love is forever changing—the human heart remains a wildly mysterious thing.
