Unhooked Generation: The Truth About Why We're Still Single by Jillian Straus

A startling book full of jaw-dropping insights into the real reasons that young men and women are having a harder time than ever before committing to a relationship

How many times have you or someone you care about wondered: Why am I still single? Is it me, or is it them? Unhooked Generation answers those questions with important discoveries about the unique challenges faced by today's young men and women. It shouldn't be surprising that were still single—it's a miracle when we can make it work. Here are just a few of this generation's stumbling blocks:

  • The checklist — the secret set of requirements that men and women use to measure each prospective date. Is he tall enough/rich enough? Is she pretty enough/flexible enough? Does he/she like sports too much or not enough? Like your dog?
  • The DTR — Have you "Defined The Relationship"? Had "The Talk"? It's when you ask where the relationship is going—and it strikes fear into most hearts.
  • Settling — When is it compromise and when is it giving in—To this generation, those concepts are often synonymous.
  • Consumer sex — Sex is a powerful commodity, and this generation has separated it from commitment while ignoring the long-term consequences.
Based on interviews with one hundred men and women across the country, Unhooked Generation offers a page-turning analysis of what is keeping this generation unhooked—and a sharp, concrete final chapter that explains how we can happily change course.
