“As usual, my optimistic approach to life was failing me. I could have been relaxing at home with a movie and a large plate of pasta, but instead I was fielding a series of uncomfortable encounters with strangers and drinking a flat Coke.” (32) Ah, Adventures in Dating.
Full of clever wit and sensitivity, story is a well-written and insightful account of one woman’s dating journey. I just enjoyed her wry, sarcastic dialogue as well as the disaster dates with these so-called men. I have to say that a lot of these guys were just crazy! The best thing was that each guy provided a lesson for her, like stay from short-tempered guys that go off the handle on you over a 16-month calendar, for instance.
Gretchen Johnson has penned a wonderful story about a woman that keeps on walking, going past the barriers and making her own path—something we should all learn to live by.
Story was smart, humorous, and enjoyable. A fun, light-hearted read! A must for any girl who’s ever lived the single life.
My rating: 5 stars
