Overview

There's always something to complain about when looking at the current state of dating. Maybe you didn't want an arranged marriage in 1884. Some will have thought it sucked you had to make lots of money to be attractive in the 1920s. And not everyone was happy with the whole "free love" thing in the 60s.

The fact of the matter is: Dating is going to be what it's going to be. Whatever era you're alive in, you're just gonna have to deal with it and find your way anyway. Moira Weigel, a PhD candidate at Yale has written just the book for it. It's called Labor of Love: The Invention of Dating.

"There's no better life than a life spent laboring at love – exerting effort not because we have to, but because we believe that what we are bringing into being is valuable and we want it to exist."
