Do You Love Me or Am I Just Paranoid?: The Serial Monogamist's Guide to Love

Do You Love Me or Am I Just Paranoid?: The Serial Monogamist's Guide to Love Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With intelligence, breadth, and a bad attitude, Do You Love Me or Am I Just Paranoid? parodies conventional relationship guides by taking a frank and funny look at failed relationships, bad dates, living together, serial monogamy, and other dysfunctional aspects of modern love relationships. While satirizing the format and pointers that permeate these ubiquitous guides, Chocano reflects on cornerstones of today's relationships, such as:
-- Serial Monogamy for Beginners, or the phenomenon of jumping from one long-term relationship to the next and how you can make the most of it
-- Living Together, the Noncommittal Commitment
-- Things to Do on a Date: If, in Fact, That's What This Is
-- Boing! The Anatomy of a Rebound
-- You and Your Precious Feelings
-- When Thinking Too Much Is Not Enough

In addition, Chocano attempts to resolve such probing questions as "In Love or Insane?" and "But Exactly How Great Is He?" With helpful checklists and charts, this book will delineate the gap between the world of chirpy advice books and the often dysfunctional (yet irresistible) reality of all unhallowed unions everywhere. Do You Love Me or Am I just Paranoid? is a wickedly funny book for anyone who isn't single but not yet married either.

Synopsis:

Wallowing in the murky haze of unhallowed unions everywhere, Do You Love Me or Am I Just Paranoid? offers solutions to some of life’s most vexing relationship predicaments, such as:

-Things to Do on a Date--If, in Fact, That’s What This Is

-Living Together vs. Marriage: A Handy Guide to Telling Them Apart

-Why Wait? Making the Most of a Rebound

-But Exactly How Great Is He?

-Are You in Love or Insane?
