Our new author is a single man in his 40's, possibly one of the worst times in your life to be going for a new relationship. Yet he perseveres on in the face of constant failure, buoyed up by some glimmers of hope and a cheerful personality.
His humor is self-depreciating and his stories are all too believable. Mind you, clearly this is his first book, his writing style is a little rough at times.
But for those that have been there, it can be a compelling read- of course some times the compelling force is what makes us not able to take out eyes away from a train wreck.
I got some serious chuckles and not a few winces.
I rcvd a copy for review.
Lawrence is man who is middled aged man searching for love. His true life experiences is painful so real. His humor is pointed and slaps the reader in the face with its realism.
The one thing usually you get with these real life dating journals books is how the men drive them crazy and they trash talk the women. This is not the case with this book, This is one of the few told from a man point of view. Not a macho man, just a normal joe type guy. Fisher take the high road and looks at the tasks of hercules (the dating scene) with a logically sound mind and with a lot of humor.
Told almost like a diary setting, you the reader will get caught up in this memoir. What makes this book refreshing is its honesty. Very few men would be this revealing and that what makes this works.
What challeges me is why the book does not develope more into the women mindset themselves. Fisher's insights are great, but i felt like I needed more depth to the situations of the dates.
On the whole, men will laugh and agree at this book...women will be laughing with a warp sense of "It doesnt sound like me at all" kind of mentally.
I am debating to sending this book to all the women in my life..maybe they may get me!
In the far distant past I've had a few "undesirable" dates and heard some real lalapaloozas from friends... However, author Lawrence Fisher's dating experiences beat anything I have heard or read. He sure met some kooky women.
Not many men are as honest as Fisher...which makes this book seem real. His dates may have most often turned tragic (in his search for true love), but they were amusing to me.
I recommend this book to people still seeking love. It might lift your spirits to know others have it even worse. :-)

Mr. Fisher gives the highlights err rather lowlights of his dating experience. He covers the first 6/7 months of his dating experiences. The stories are funny and I was laughing so hard that my sides were hurting. Yeah I may have pulled something when he started doing the Joey (Friends) impersonations. "How you doin" I am laughing now as I write this. Just funny. Fisher tells it like it is. Sometimes we think things that are not appropriate for anyone to hear but we are taking inventory within our own mind. We don't want to think that way but sometimes WE DO. There is a reason he wrote a book because the conversations he has in his head are comedy gold.
He doesn't go into full detail of his dates so it never has a boring feel to it and that was good. He only gives us the highlights of the dates. Not all his dates ended up in the book. Which for some may be a good thing. but the ones he told us about. WOW! Just WOW! Sad thing is that people like this do exist and even though he exaggerates the details because admit it we all do it. It's called laughing at a bad situation. It makes it better if you have a way to handle it.
Honestly I found this book quite funny. My sense of humor is kinda off sometimes and it shows on humor books.Read more ›
"My name is Lawrence, I'm in my late forties and I am single! It sounds like an introduction line from an AA meeting, but it's true!
How did I manage to stay single until such a late age without getting married, you ask? Well, some friends tell me I'm the luckiest dude living on this planet, but some say I am missing something. "
Ok, what is this book about? It's about Lawrence, a man in his late 40s and his quest for the one. After breaking up with the love of his life, Lawrence is trying to get back into "the dating game". While this game may be fun, it also has lots of rules and signals one has to decode. So, Lawrence is on a quest, trying out different dating sites and social medias to approach a normal, caring, loving woman..THE ONE! Is he going to find her?
It was such a fun reading about Lawrence and the many humorous situations in which he finds himself in. First off, so far in my history of reading I don't recall reading a book like this. A book which offers a man's perspective on dating. I never really thought men analyze us women so much.:) Lawrence is comparing dating to battlefield, which is also a comparison I couldn't exactly relate to, but then again, it could be the fact it's been long time since I've dated.
However, I found this book very original, funny and entertaining. I read it in just few hours and really liked Lawrence. He might seem a bit bitter at times (at least that's my opinion), but you can feel he DOES care about love and women. I sometimes thought he cares even too much, trying to decode everything a woman does, or tells him, each message or e-mail he gets.
Overall, reading this book was quite an experience. I was literally cheering for Lawrence and hoped he will find the ONE. Will he? Oh that's something you have to find out for yourself:) I sure hope I will read more from Mr Fisher soon.
