121 First Dates

by Wendy Newman


When it comes to dating, everyone messes up – it's perfectly normal. That's where Wendy Newman comes in. Think of Newman as that big sister who has experienced every dating disaster and is here to make sure that you don't make the same mistakes.

In this book, the relationship expert and author identifies the do's and don'ts of dating, as well as covering all possible dating situations. Part memoir, part self-help book, 121 First Dates is primarily centered around Newman's own experiences with dating sites and first dates in the real world, but also provides tips and tricks on finding a lifelong partner. Newman's funny and helpful advice will give you the confidence and fortitude you need to explore the dating scene.

Favorite quote

I can sit at home and sulk for days, weeks, months, or, in some of my friends' cases, years, or I can clear it out of my psyche the best I know how and head out there and do it all again: new outfit, new shoes, new mani-pedi, and new guy.
