Overview

Don't let the swipe rule your life

Online dating. Dating apps. Texting. Social media. Endless swiping in search of forever love. It seems like the more ways technology offers to "connect" us, the less connected we actually are. Modern dating is not for the faint of heart!

Don't Believe the Swipe is not your mother's dating guide. It isn't about "landing a man" or learning to "think like a man" or "getting any man to fall in love with you"; it's about falling in love with yourself and then extending that love to every aspect of your life—including your love life. It's about learning to date without surrendering your power. It's about choosing yourself, regardless of whether someone swipes right or swipes left.

Funny, fresh, and relevant to today's crazy dating world, this book is sure to become your go-to modern dating guide. New York Times bestselling author Mandy Hale draws on her own hilarious and often jaw-dropping experiences to illustrate what it means to stop believing the swipe and start finding love without losing yourself.

There is a way to date with dignity, to refuse to let the swipe rule your life, to stand confident in your worth, and to not settle for less than you deserve. This book is that way.

"Where has this book been all my life? It's seriously the last dating book I'll ever need."—Krista Allen, actress, comedian, recovering believer in the swipe

"This book cuts through the fog of modern dating and reconnects us to our single most important relationship—the relationship we have with ourselves."—Devyn Simone, celebrity matchmaker, dating expert, and TV host
