Modern Dating: A Field Guide by Chiara Atik

From the creators of the popular online dating site comes the definitive guide for navigating the modern dating world.

The single woman is having a moment. In the worlds of work, personal finances, and education, women are more successful than ever before. When it comes to dating, they're happy to take their time exploring lots of different relationships before deciding if they want to settle down. Women today, like the generations of women before them, want to fall in love. But they want it to happen organically, at its own pace, and with the right person.

Rather than listing a set of "rules," Modern Dating offers advice on modern challenges, like how to send a relatively unembarrassing sext, how to create a failproof first date idea, and how to make sure you're getting into a relationship for the right reasons. Instead of telling you How to Win a Husband in Just 3 Easy Steps!, it will gently guide you through all the triumphs and pitfalls of what dating is actually like, from one-night stands, to confusing texts and emails, to your first online date.

Frank, funny, and totally relatable, this is a book that really gets at how women are dating today—the ideal travel companion for your dating life. The only rule is that there are no rules, but this book will be there for guidance, or just for laughs, every step of the way.

Chiara's advice is nothing short of brilliant -- and yet, she's upbeat, hilarious and completely down to earth. This book is a fantastic guide to what dating is like in the world of texting, splitting the bill and friending each other on Facebook. A must read!

I think the book would be good for the right type of person. However it assumes you 1) have tons of friends, and 2) go out to bars aLOT. And most of the advice is along the lines of waht to do in those situations. Now, since I dont's drink and dont really want a guy that does either, Im not a bar person. Second my local friends are mostly guys, my girlfiriends in town are married (so no going out to party), and my best friends are out of state, So this book really wasn't very useful for me.
