Summary

"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." (Amelia)

I don’t know, I just think there’s too much miscommunication between guys and girls. I mean, no one knows what the fuck 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 shit 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."

Chilling how accurate this is!

The way she described her feelings about “Jay” and how he treated her, snapped me out of my toxic cycle.

The modern breakup book

For anyone who has spent some time reflecting on modern day dating and how to set boundaries for themselves, this book won’t really have any eye opening facts that’ll change your life. It might manifest what you already know though. For women who constantly fall for the wrong guys and really don’t know why - this might be a good place to start and think about your relationships and yourself and how it’s all connected.

Not for the literature literate.

If you can stand valley girls voices and are a middle school girl looking for relationship advice this book is for you.
