Inspired by other bloggers I follow, I’m hoping this year I will document the books I read! Being an MBA student I probably shouldn’t read “for fun” as much as I do, but its the best way for me to fall asleep each night.
Falling asleep after “chatting” with a funny man, definitely makes for a better night’s sleep…..Okay I’m definitely still single, but reading Modern Romance gave me just a little bit of hope.
The main things I learned from Aziz’s book
- Arranged marriages are the way to go.
- Online dating is the worst.
- Men and women suck at communicating.
Unfortunately my parents don’t seem to be interested in setting up a marriage for me. I am dipping a toe (or two) into the online dating world. And communication is the worst. A few weeks ago I asked someone if they wanted to meet up over the weekend, the male’s response…. “ok.” Gee, could he have been any less interested? (said in Chandler voice, naturally).
Thankfully he ended up texting me the day of and we did end up going to a brewery. But if he hadn’t reached out, I was letting it drop. I assumed his “ok” was unenthusiastic. There’s a chance I was reading too far into it.
“Modern Romance” will provide a few laughs, lots of insight into the United States dating culture, as well as insight into the romance culture in a few other international locations. The middle got a bit depressing with the abundance of options, and people’s inability to follow through with online dating connections, but ultimately I think there is hope for the single world.
