Why You're Still Single: Things Your Friends Would Tell You If You Promised Not to Get Mad

This book isn't about catching men or reeling anybody in. Catching is for nine-year-olds playing freeze tag, and reeling is for trout. This is about you, considering the possibility that you're tripping over your own feet—no matter how much of an amazing, smart, hot, totally worthwhile ass-kicker you may be as a general rule. Some food for thought:

Don't be the “men are pigs” woman. She's boring. She's unhappy. And the good men don't want her. Don't demand the right to set arbitrary rules, let alone change them every five minutes. Act like a crazy person and you'll be treated like one. Realize when he doesn't want to talk and give him that space. Men don't usually feel the need to share as much. Respect that or watch him shut down even more.

...In other words: If you're looking for a different approach, this book has one.
