Whatever happened to #13: GENTLEMANLY and #25: CHIVALROUS? I was not old-fashioned by any means, but I grew up in a household where I was taught that men always treated women with courtesy and respect. They opened the doors. They carried the groceries. They paid the bill."
Now that she’s reached the impending-spinsterhood age of 26, Leila Abid’s Muslim South Asian American parents are adamant: Find a husband, and find him soon. They even pick a date: Their 35th wedding anniversary, three months away. So Leila dutifully starts a dating campaign to find a man who matches the desired attributes she once wrote on seven napkins*, trying every method available: apps, matchmakers, speed-dating. But while there are plenty of available men, none of them seems to be Mr. Right. And that deadline keeps looming ever closer.I picked this up expecting a romance, but it turned out to be a very different book. And I actually liked the book it turned out to be better than the one I was anticipating. So, nice fake-out, book!
