A copy of this book has been provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Everyone who has ever done the online dating thing has stories to tell The ones that are worth recounting are inevitably horrible dates with crazy people, although the truth is that most online dates are just like job interviews except you focus on personal stuff and you might occasionally be asked about favorite sex positions, which is atypical of the job interviews I ve been on In Available, Matteson Perry takes a year off from serial monogamy, hoping to date and have sex with as many women as is feasible without hurting anyone s feelings At the start of the book, he s not sure about what he thinks about marriage since his parents divorce, but the way he s approached relationships so far has just not been working for him What makes movies magical is not that incredible things happen in them incredible things happen in real life, too No, what makes them magical is they end after the incredible thing happens What made Matteson Perry s book different from other books about doing tons of dating is 1 It s told from a man s perspective I ve read other books, nonfiction and fiction, from a female perspective , and 2 , he is really funny, getting me to chuckle out loud several times One particularly funny scene is when he ignores several red flags with a woman and takes her home They have such aggressive sex that she leaves him with hickeys all over his body the night before he s meeting his family for a beach vacation His ensuing attempts at doing online research on rapid hickey removal is hilarious This is a light, fun book I recommend it both to people who are getting back into dating after a long relationship and to people who are in a long term relationship so you can remember that dating stinks, and you should try to work things out if possible.

Totally flew through this book Has literally nothing to do with my life right now i m not a guy in my early 30s dating a series of women but has such a funny, reflective, self effacing narrator, it s easy to get drawn in One of the quotes on the back likens it to a bill Bryson style dating book, which I totally agree with It ends wonderfully, but at that point you re enjoying the writing so much you want to go, OK, so the story s over, but just keep talking about something else and I ll read that too. I listened to this book, narrated by the author, and I loved it I ll be honest, there were moments when I wanted to reach through the pages and slap him senseless for being a jerk, but then he would come to this same realization on his own, and I d think, Okay, he truly is a nice guy As a not so thirty something reader, I found his thirty something experiences laugh out loud hilarious yes, people looked at me suspiciously during those outbursts, but I d just point to the noise cancelling headphones over my ears, and shrug my shoulders and I enjoyed his openness and honesty The Burning Man section alone, makes Matteson Perry a very brave man A word of caution Please remember that this is a memoir, and not a how to book. He dates and has sex with a bunch of girls, and then he settles down and has sex with just one girl. Cute book Good beach read. Matteson Perry is what you d refer to as a nice guy Always trying to treat a lady right and had always been in committed relationships being a serial monogamist But when the girl he thought would be his one and only dumps him he decides it s time to change things up and try casual dating His Plan 1 Be single for a year 2 Date a lot of women 3 Hurt no one s feelings.Available is a memoir written of Matteson Perry s experience with dating and relationships It s often incredibly funny which I enjoyed A look into a male s experience with the single life when he s not a player or very good at the whole dating thing it was somewhat of an interesting read I do think the one thing that brought my rating down a bit was it seemed to get a bit repetitive after a while reading about this date or that experience And I also would have probably been better off skipping the whole chapter with the drug experimenting Overall though this was a fun read, Matteson can be a funny guy just from the first page where it mentions he s changed the names, not to protect those in the book but because he came up with better names I didn t necessarily agree with everything and find it hard to rate a memoir feeling I m judging someone s life but decided on three stars in the end for overall enjoyment of the read I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.For reviews please visit Matteson Perry s book Available is an wonderful book Why did I like the book Be course it was entertaining and same time helping It s not easy to be single and it s interesting to read about other people experience Matteson has always been a bits shy when it comes to woman He didn t have girlfriend in high school, his first girlfriend he met in college orientation week and they stayed together through college After school they went their different ways and shortly Matteson found a new girl He had seven girlfriends before the last one with whom he had been together for years, moved to LA together, got a dog together left him He was always a nice guy, had always hard time to end relationships that didn t really work, but he was to afraid to be alone, so he did his best to fix unfixable relationships and suffered After his last girlfriend left he was a mess But one of his friends had just been in Burning Man and he told to Matteson about his unbelievable sexcapades in Burning Man and Matteson decides he will go there next year, but that meant, he had to be single to have his own sexcapades in Burning Man So the Plan was born Stay single for a year, but date a lot, get to know himself and what he wants and after Burning Man, find the one girl to settle down with.For someone who had not really dated, it was difficult to start to figure out from where and how to get a date, should he let his friends to set him up, should he go online Well turning this year he tried all friend s friends, online, fans from club, girls from night club, some where quick, others took time, some understood his need to stay single, others heard wedding bells after first kiss, some where fun, others where scary After Burning man, where he had awesome experience but no sexcapades, he decides to settle down, and he even finds a girl who was almost what he wanted, but in the end the girl still left him after some months At the time the girl he actually wanted was off limits, since she was his friends ex girlfriend and his friend as well But at the end they still got together and got married some months later and now they have been married for two years It s a real life rom com.It was really good read, compelling read and entertaining read and I think it s a good book to give to my young nephew to read and to learn from.
