A Perpetually Single Girl Searches for Love in (Mostly) All the Wrong Places
ABOUT FIND ME SOMEBODY TO LOVE
In this candid, honest, and deeply personal collection of essays, actress and writer Lauren Elaine Skirvin tries to navigate through her often incredibly disappointing dating life through humor and tears.
After seven years of being single and another “situationship” blowing up in her face, Skirvin’s dating life had become so sad, confusing, and hilarious that she had to document it. She had no idea what she was doing wrong. She was attracting so many unsuitable men and doing so many misguided things and then feeling so heartbroken and perplexed when those relationships would inevitably end in disaster. She started writing to give her feelings some sort of outlet and to do a deep dive into the origins of her damaging patterns and behaviors. Through her intense examination of those past mistakes and lessons learned along the way, “Find Me Somebody To Love,” is the perfect guidebook of what not to do when it comes to love, dating, and relationships.
“The Millennial Carrie Bradshaw,” as she’s coined herself, Skirvin’s stories range from the hilarious to the traumatic, and the profound to the painful in this collection of stories which is relatable to any young person flailing through the trials and tribulations of finding love. Through her thoughts on marriage, her fear of intimacy, her involvement with dating an addict, her prudish upbringing, experiencing a contentious relationship with her soulmate, or navigating through friends with benefits, Skirvin proves to be a courageous storyteller who will have you on an emotional rollercoaster of laughter, angst, and heartbreak.
