Can't Think Straight: A Memoir of Mixed-Up Love Paperback – January 1, 2011
Top Customer Reviews
You have to be aware: she can be a bit vulgar. Of course she writes about meaningless sex and the need to feel desired. Who wouldn't? The man she thought to be her soulmate prefers another sex entirely and has been cheating on her for years. This book is about coming to the realization that the dating scene is one huge, stressful place. If you're in a relationship, it will make you cherish your man (after you're done scrutinizing whether or not he's a closet gay). If you're single, it will open your eyes to the terrors that are out there in the male dating pool. If you want an honest account of the battle a young woman goes through after finding out her boyfriend is gay: read this book. Hell, I think every woman could take something from this.
Thanks for putting yourself on the line and writing this Ms. Blakeley. I know that as a single woman in NYC you are probably catching a bit of flack for your honesty and experiences but I can assure you that through writing this you did many women a huge favor. I can finally sleep knowing that I'm not the only woman out there who has been through this and THAT means the WORLD to me.
I too was involved with a gay man. I was actually married for 14 years. I felt trapped in a loveless marriage but stayed "for the sake of my children" until the day I simply couldn't play anymore. I felt as though my inner being was being stolen from me.
I ordered the book one morning after seeing your interview on The TODAY show. You caught my attention when they introduced you and I had to stay and hear your story. I am so thankful that I did. I loved the humor you share and the way you dealt with your fiance of 10 years revealing that he is gay.
I don't think there is any way one could truly understand this predicament and the emotions you feel when faced with this issue. It suddenly seems that everything and life as you know it is nothing but a lie!
Loved, loved, loved the part of the book where you made mention of "till dick do us part". I have never laughed so hard in my life! This is only one of the hysterical lines you wrote. You are an awesome woman and I hope to read many books written by you in the future. I know you will be a huge hit with this book and anything you publish in the future.
My sister just returned the book to me and I'm going to pass it on to a co-worker who was also married to a gay man!Read more ›
