Dating is something every woman has to do, but it’s so much more fun to read about Kristen doing it, and living to tell about it so hilariously, than actually having to suffer through it yourself. Thank you, sister.” Heather McDonald, comedian and author of You’ll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again

Any woman who can go on fifty-one dates stone-cold sober is showing pluck that can’t be ignored. Kristen McGuiness has concocted a truly terrific read.” Deanna Kizis, author of How to Meet Cute Boys and Finishing Touches
As a woman who’s been dating in Los Angeles for five yearssoberI do miss the beer goggles.’ If you aren’t using booze to get through it, baby, you better laugh, or cry. This book will have you doing both.” Lisa Ann Walter, actress and comedian
