The Girl Who Dated Herself by Susannah Shakespeare (Hardcover)
Your relationship with yourself is like an arranged marriage. You didn't choose it and you can't get out of it.
After a lifelong quest to find "the one" a British writer living in L.A. finds herself single again in her mid-thirties and admits defeat. But instead of blaming the string of past ex-boyfriends, she turns the spotlight on herself. Taking a year off dating men, she tries to date herself in a search for some answers.
A fun "honeymoon period" concludes with a shocking discovery. She starts to dig deeper, seeking the source of her problems, but the truth is a bitter pill to swallow.
The Girl Who Dated Herself begins as an entertaining "rom com for one" but evolves into an engaging and thought-provoking journey that ultimately questions our preconceptions about love and the foundations of self worth.
A book for women and men of all ages, this creative memoir is endlessly amusing and endearing. It touches on subjects painfully familiar to some and uncomfortably shocking to others. A journey of self-discovery, it is also a beautiful love letter to Los Angeles, taking the reader to the real world behind the glitz and gloss of Beverly Hills and Hollywood.
