When I was 25 years old, it came to my attention that I had never had a girlfriend. At the time, I was actually under the impression that I was in a relationship, so this bit of news came as something of a shock.
Why was Josh still single? To find out, he tracked down each of the girls he had tried to date since middle school and asked them straight up: What went wrong?
The results of Josh's semiscientific investigation are in your hands. From a disastrous Putt-Putt date involving a backward prosthetic foot, to his introduction to CFD (Close Fast Dancing), and a misguided "grand gesture" at a Miss America pageant, this story is about looking for love - or at least a girlfriend - in all the wrong places.
Poignant, relatable, and wholly hilarious, this memoir is for anyone who has ever wondered, "Is there something wrong with me?"
(Spoiler Alert: the answer is no.)

I picked this up because a YouTuber recommended it. This will probably be the first and last time I'll read a YouTube book. This book was sooo incredibly repetitive, and while pretty funny at times, it got old really quickly. His desperate need to get a girlfriend really got on my nerves and his sense of entitlement that girls should like him back and treat him a certain way... Oh boy. By the end of the book, I truly did not give a damn about his girl problems. They're all the same, anyway. 2 stars because maybe 20% of the book held my interest, but I definitely would not recommend.
It was an easy read, and broken down into very manageable parts (if you like to read a section and then put it down for awhile). I'm the type of person who rates a book 5-stars if I'd actually read it again; 4-stars if I keep it around and would consider reading it again but probably won't; 3-stars if I don't want to read it again, but I'll keep it around on my bookshelf; 2-stars if I finished it but will donate it because it wasn't worth keeping on the bookshelf; and finally 1-star if I won't finish it. This is definitely a book I'll keep around, maybe loan it to a friend and not be concerned if I never get it back.
I've loved Josh Sundquist for awhile - his speeches, his YouTube channel. Just Don't Fall etc, but this book topped it off. The idea of a book like this was completely new and unheard of and that made this book seriously enjoyable. Even if a random stranger stumbled across this book, thay'd fall in love immediately....unlike Josh.
Oh, and even better, his author profile had a selfie.
