‘Pacey, intelligent and authoritative account with bags of wit’ Law Gazette

Dating has never been easy. The road to true love has always been rutted with heartbreak, but do we have it any easier today?

How did Victorians ‘come out’? How did love blossom in war-torn Europe? And why did 80s video-dating never take off?

Bursting with little-known facts and tantalizing tales of lovelorn men and besotted women, Nichi Hodgson’s intriguing history of amorous relationships, from enamoured Georgians to frenziedly swiping millennials (and everyone in between) may leave you grateful that you live – and love – today

Modern dating is hard. Whether you’re falling for that man-child for the 57th time or text messaging your way to stalker status, dating can make you want to find a nice, roomy hermitage on Airbnb and live a solitary, monk-like life. Luckily, that frustration ends now. This Is Why You’re Single breaks away from your traditional dating guide by taking a page from Aesop’s playbook with hilarious modern-day dating fables paired with advice, entertaining quizzes, graphs and illustrations. Dating will feel a whole lot more doable, a little less weird, and, well, actually pretty fun.
