Every Friday Night: My Year of Dating Misadventures (2003)

Details Release Date: Jul 01, 2003; Writer: Rita McLaughlin; Genre: Nonfiction

Single, successful, and sad, investment-firm VP McLaughlin applies her business aptitude to her personal life, exploiting the law of averages by dating as many men as possible. Then she meticulously analyzes her dates' imperfections, often stereotyping men after brief encounters -- but seldom delving into her own underlying issues. In the end, her uneventful year on the romance market reveals what many already know: Being a single working woman is not synonymous with death -- even at 30. Would you like some crackers to go with that whine?
