One of my favorite things about summer is all of the reading I can get done, especially when I’m laying on the beach…
Last weekend I powered through Aziz Ansari’s Modern Romance and, seriously, it’s a must read, especially if you’re dating. I watched his stand up special on Netflix and thought it was pretty good, so when I saw the book I figured why not—good summer read for someone who just went through a break up and is trying to navigate the world of online (app) dating. None of this stuff existed the last time I was single, so there’s definitely a little bit of a learning curve, plus what we’re looking for in relationships has changed SO MUCH over the last 50 years.
I like that Aziz (sorry, I just feel like we’re friends now after reading this) took the whole thing seriously enough to do some real research and talk to a lot of experts. Some of the stuff seemed pretty obvious (people are getting married later in life) but some of it was pretty surprising (did you know Japan is having a full blown marriage crisis!?). In all, I’m always up for a little bit of insight into what’s happening in my life since this is the new reality of being single, especially in a city like New York.
Also, maybe I should start talking about my adventures in dating on the blog? The studio already knows way too much about my sex life…(sorry mom!)
