"When it comes to dating, I seem to be going around in a circle. The ones I want don't want me, and the ones who want me, I don't want."

“I don’t know, I just think there’s too much miscommunication between guys and girls. I mean, no one knows what the f**k is going on. We need to have the discussion. We need to vent it and get it out in the open,” I said, grabbing my drink from the bedside table.

_______ sat on the edge of the bed and put his shirt back on. “What do you want to know?”

“I just want to know what guys are thinking. I mean we have sex and stuff and nothing lasting ever comes of it,” I said, taking a cigarette out and lighting it. I knew I shouldn’t be smoking in the room, but I was too drunk to care.

“I don’t think I should say. We don’t know everything girls are thinking. I think some things are better left unsaid.”

“I want to know. I’d prefer s**t to be clearer, because I’m always confused,” I replied. I could tell he was still a bit sexually frustrated, but he seemed okay to chat.

“Go ahead then, ask what you want. I’ll try give it to you as straight as I can. But don’t hate the messenger,” _______ responded, taking the champagne from my hand and having some.

“I won’t, promise. So why do guys act so interested and then not get in touch at all? ?” I asked.

    If you like it, that’s you. I don’t like it because I’ve read more intellectual books. This is a modern break up, yes but for $10 of knowledge I’ve known and experienced first hand was not well spent.
  • Good but Repetitive

    Good read but did feel like it dragged on at parts.
  • Inspiring

    This book is literally me on paper. Such a good reminder that you’re not alone and that you need to focus on you for a little bit. I definitely am glad I read it. It captivated me from start to finish. I highly recommend!
