Overview

Even if you haven't met Mr. Right . . . don't let go of Mr. Wrong. Playful color illustrations and quirky descriptions reveal the many, multifaceted ways to make something useful out of Mr. Wrong. Raucous, hilarious, sometimes even a touch cruel, the ideas range from using your man as a surfboard or coat rack to a last-minute New Year's Eve date, or as a way to practice sexual technique. Date a dictator and you have a chance to rule a country. Get away from it all with your new Amish boyfriend. Find some feng shui from an interior decorator. Have your car overhauled by your lovin' mechanic. Hardly politically correct but provocatively on the mark, Mr. Wrong: A User's Guide is simply hilarious.

"Just when you thought dating was useless--Mr. Wrong will save you from your bad date blues. This book will make you smile and show you how to make the most of your time with Mr. Wrong until you meet Mr. Right."(—Suzanne Yalof, author of Getting Over John Doe)

Read an Excerpt

We're all familiar with the old proverb "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." I think it has something to do with learning to appreciate what you have instead of mooning over what you don't. Especially when it comes to guys ...

So what is a girl to do in between Mr. Rights? I say, go out, enjoy life, experiment, see the world! The men you meet along the way should not be considered a waste of time. If that bird in your hand is not The One, don't just set him free. Make use of him.

Does this sound familiar?

A. You meet him at a bar, and at a glance you know that he's not your type, but you're in between boyfriends, so why the heck not?

B. He's the NGB (a nice guy, but . . .) your best friend has set you up with. You prefer the withdrawn, silent type, but you'll try anything once.

C. You have the Whitmar's Sampler theory of dating. (You prefer the nuts and chews, but if those are already taken, you'll settle for the cream centers, at least for one bite.)

D. Your mother warned you never to marry an unemployed musician. You know that she's right. But you're young still, so why not have some fun before you settle down and move to the suburbs.

E. He's not the man of your dreams, but he's Mr. Right Now.

If so, I've got some ideas for you ...
