What Was I Thinking?: 58 Bad Boyfriend Stories by Barbara Davilman, Liz Dubelman

The stories you are about to read are true. Often hilarious and always relatable, they all describe the moment when good sense and simple self-respect triumph over the human need to be loved—or, at least, the need to be with a particular man. The relationship may not last beyond lunch, or it may linger for weeks, months, or even years. But inside, you know: it’s over.

    I was shocked by the stupidity in this book. I thought it was going to be entertaining and funny but it was just ridiculous. I did not enjoy one story from this book. They are all sad and depressing. Some of the stories are about women leaving perfectly good marriages because of one thing the husband said--now that is plain stupid and selfish. I really hope women are not as ignorant as this book portrays. This book bashes marriage and makes women look retarded.

    Loved it for so many reasons! I bought it because I thought it would be good for a few laughs. And it is -- it's very funny. But then, something else started to happen. The more I read these fabulous stories about fabulous women who accept ridiculous things from the men in their lives... well, the book kind of morphed from a collection of humorous stories into a self-help book. Why the heck do we women do this stuff? And we do! We all do! Wait till you read the story about the girl who compromised her standards to date a porn star -- and then he dumped her because he thought she was a slut! Well, I'm glad I bought this book, because my whole level of awareness about relationships has changed. I laughed, I cried, and I am forever changed.

    Most of these stories are by women who are MUCH older than I am. And many of the stories left me saying, "So what?" I was expecting much more humor and stories I could relate to. The laughs are few and far between.
    A few were interesting, though.
