I honestly don't know how to classify this book? Is it memoir? Is it autobiography? Or just satire/humor/entertainment slashed with truths from her life? I really don't care - I absolutely LOVED it.

Or just satire/humor/entertainment slashed with truths from her life? I really don't care - I absolutely LOVED it. It's pretty much all I did at work. Read this damn book. Thanks, Jordan. Productivity level at work today, ZERO. But I did read your book, so there's that. And now that I'm speaking directly to the author it seems... Jordan, if you're ever in NYC, look me up, let's grab a couple drinks and dish.
OK - back to this book already right? GOOD LAWD, I must be the same age(ish) as the author because I understood every damn reference. This is all too realistic look at the game of dating and making one horrible (but lesson worthy) choice after another in relationship land. I reside in this corner of that universe way more than I care to admit. I didn't even want to throttle Jordan when she continually went back and back and back again because hell, I've been there. DONE THAT. I'll just throttle myself, thank you very much.
"The Amount of bullshit humans still take and how quickly they'll get up only to fall back down again is nothing short of fascinating. Masochists, all of us."
These stories are funny and somewhat depressing as well. At the same time, when we're young, we're allotted mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes carry over into our adult life but isn't our whole life spent learning and then learning some more?
"Odds are if you're old enough to read this, cover to cover, it's too late for you." WELL, FUCK.
I really enjoyed the sense of humor in this book. I honestly thought at first it would be that whole 'the past made me who I am and men suck so that's why I'm crazy and fuck the men in the world (but not literally, unless you're on a dry streak then anything goes)'. What it turned out to be was a lesson for us all - yes, men are assholes and women are crazy. Some more than others. And I'm jealous of all you women who found their men when they were young so never had to endure the vapid dating game that the single people embrace on the daily. Then again, grass is greener and all that, right?
While I enjoyed the stories woven throughout this book, I appreciated the epilogue as well and the advice given at the end. Did I say lesson earlier? I didn't quite mean that. This book isn't a lesson. This book is just a raw realistic look into the craziness that occurs in a relationship and quite frankly, if you're been in the dating scene for a while and haven't experienced any of these stories or something similar well then... you're lying.
Thanks so much to the author for this copy <3...more
