How to Not Die Alone

by Logan Ury


If only dating were as easy as it is in fairy tales. All you would have to do is wait for your soulmate to show up and sweep you off your feet. Unfortunately, reality isn't as simple as fairy tales and dating is very different from love.

According to Logan Ury, a behavioral scientist turned dating coach, no one is born knowing how to choose someone to spend their life with. As a behavioral expert at Google and now Director of Relationship Science for the dating app Hinge, Ury knows a thing or two about the science of love.

In her 2021 book, Ury explores how to find and create a relationship that makes you happy. How To Not Die Alone: The Surprising Science That Will Help You Find Love is designed to help readers make better dating decisions. It's also a guide to the habits that either improve or ruin dating.

We're passionate! We care about stuff. We talk openly. We're not the same person, so of course we're going to fight. I know all relationships require work. And I'm choosing to invest in this one.
