You have two choices:

Be attacked by a wolverine or go on a date

If you're smart, you chose wolverine.

If not—well, wait, are you sure you don't want the wolverine?

Happily ever after isn't so easy anymore. It's all speed dating, matchmaking terror, and visits to your therapist. Whether it's the mortification, frustration, or just plain exhaustion that's got you ready to give up on love, this book is here to help. After all, there are only two ways out of the dating scene. One involves giving up all your possessions and taking a vow of chastity. The other involves finding a permanent (or semi-permanent, anyway) partner. This book will help you get through the latter.

From the bar scenes and the first sexual encounter to deciding whether to move in together, Dating Makes You Want to Die walks you through every stage of the dating process—and, like a Belarusian arms dealer, provides the heavy artillery you'll need to destroy the potential problems lurking in each one. Each chapter discusses the problems that can arise when dating, offers a remedy, and includes hilarious sidebars and quizzes to further help you prepare for the jungle out there. Some sanity-keeping tips include:

How to make a first impression that is more "good" than "totally crazy."

How to not panic the moment you realize you're actually in an honest-to-God relationship.

Helpful, foolproof breakup lines for total damage control.

Intelligent, snarky, and entertaining, Dating Makes You Want to Die may make you actually want to live through a relationship.

I have never had a date that went as badly as reading this book. From the 1950's retro interior layout to the asinine and insulting 'quizzes' at the end of each chapter to pad the pagecount, this "book" is a train wreck. You'd be better off getting dating advice from the skeezy stoner or the drunken fratboy you used to turn up your nose at back in college.

The 'advice' is a mix of What Everyone Knows (Girls want you to pay for the first date, don't make your first a movie date because you can't talk, etc) and Good Lord What's Wrong With You (insulting advice that you can only get laid if you get the girl drunk) mixed in a sarcastic, *arrogant* blend of spite and bile. If you come into this depressed because you're alone and dateless on a friday night, you might just kill yourself by work on Monday. The authors should go back to reviewing movies and writing their columns and leave relationship advice alone.

One can't help but wonder if the two authors (a male and female, to balance things, I guess) just wrote this book to try to get in on some of the "Pick-up artist" money that is changing hands out there these days. If a would be dater didn't already know most of the things in this book, they need a lot more help in their lives than just getting a date, possibly hours and hours of professional psychological help. Despite all that, the book is a fast, humorous read and so short that it soundn't take more than 2 or 3 sittings to read it, if not one. I think the book would be better as a cute gift to lift the spirits of someone well grounded who just got dumped as opposed to serious study material for someone trying to improve their social skills.

In the realm of dating and attraction and meeting people, the dry seasons can be very dry, but when it rains it often pours and before you know it you have lots of new people in your life. Be patient. Be the best you that you can be. Keep your sunny side up and don't give up hope. Peace, my peeps.

Dating is, by nature, kind of horrible. The authors recognize that and have written accordingly, producing a one of a kind book on dating that everyone can identify with.

At turns hilarious, insightful and blunt, "Dating Makes You Want to Die" is a book that people in any stage of a relationship should read. Based more in common sense and hard-won wisdom than boring research, it reads like one of the most interesting 3am bar conversations about dating you've ever had. Even if you're past the dating stage of life, are happily committed or even married, this book will become therapy for your traumatized soul. A married man myself, I couldn't help but crack up after recognizing the former me in chapter after chapter.

Robinson and Holloway have really tapped into the zeitgeist with this one. It's the perfect dating book for the post-dating world, and I guarantee you won't find a more fun recent non-fiction book out there. It may not help you snag the perfect life mate, but at least you'll have someone to commiserate with.

I borrowed this book from the library because of it's funny title. Face it we all feel this way.
However...... I didn't really find this to be all that great of a dating how too. More of a relationship how to. So if you haven't figured out how to be in a relationship by now, this is the book for you. But if you are looking for advise on how to date, well this isn't the book... I didn't get anything useful out of it that I didn't already know.
  • Liarienen
Is a message I got from the first three pages of this book. THANKS, BOOK! This book is more likely to make you want to die than dating itself, I think.
  • Perdana
I loved this book. It was funny, witty and sarcastic with some helpful advice.. I would recommend it to anyone who just so happens to want to read a dating book. Or perhaps get some decent advice.
  • Fani
Honestly, the title says it all. Dating is, obviously, the opposite of fun but the book reminds you that it can be very, very funny, especially when viewed through the bluntly honest eyes of the book's authors. This is a great read for anyone looking for witty commentary or sage advice on navigating the ins and outs of modern dating... and at the very least it'll make you giggle.
