"Cindy truly knows how to capture the horror and humor of single womanhood. This book demonstrates her gift for spinning heartbreak into gold."
- Sarah Jessica Parker
"Cindy Chupack has the credentials to comment on the single life: she's an Emmy-winning writer for Sex and the City. Like that show, her witty first book...captures the sometimes angst-ridden world of single women. Chupack has created a smart vocabulary that describes the indignities of dating."
"...a wry, upbeat tour of the dating scene for women currently considering reentry."
- Kirkus Reviews
"I laughed out loud and recognized myself and a million people I know...honest, unself-pitying, and hilariously rich with detail. Cindy Chupack makes you laugh about the things that most of us keep to ourselves: bad boyfriends, disappearing boyfriends, retro-boyfriends, no boyfriends."
- Besty Carter, author of Nothing to Fall Back On: The Life and Times of a Perpetual Optimist
"With stiletto wit, the author...has crafted slim volume of dating-themed essays that goes down like a zingy cosmo."
"Chupack writes with the candor and gallows humor of a woman who's seen it all, but with just enough poignancy to make it clear she believes in true love. You will laugh out loud and you won't lose hope."
- Amy Sohn, author of Run Catch Kiss
"...her book is more than funny: it's brave and touching and deeply wise."
- Joyce Maynard, author of The Usual Rules
"A look at today's scary dating scene from the perspective of someone whose humor and insight gave single women everywhere a hero in Carrie (Bradshaw)."

... and that's saying alot. As soon as I finished reading this book from the library, I went online and bought a copy for 6 of my friends and of course myself. I've read it twice and still laugh out loud when reading it. Even now between my friends (boyfriend-less or attached) we use phrases like 'Taffeta Envy', 'Your Number', 'Seventeen Dates', etc. If you love Sex and the City, you'll love this book even more. Definately worth buying several copies.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is filled with delightful wit and just downright real-life humor! I received this book from my sister for Christmas (2004) and I read the entire book, cover-to-cover all on Christmas Day. I couldn't put it down. I was also having troubles of the male nature and this clever collection cheered me up 100%. It is hilarious!! A definite must-read for any girl, single or attached. Thank you, Cindy Chupack!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book was so funny. I could relate to almost everything the author was saying. Cindy's style of writing & use of words made the book what it is a absolutly histerical reality of single women everywhere. I highly recommend this book to everyone....and pass it along to your friends.!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Could it get any better although a short book I read it on a Saturday evening laugh out loud it made my no-date for the night better than having what would have been a bad one I have thrown it at all my single gal-pals and they say the same thing 'its nice to know were not alone.'

This was a quick read that would be perfect for anyone who has enjoyed the show Sex and the City. Or if you are single, looking, and often frustrated yet afflicted with hope. Chupack's insight and constant humor buoy this easy-to-like and hard to put down book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
