ABOUT ON BEING A BACHELOR

Have You Ever:

* Been a victim of the Disappearing Act, when someone you’re supposedly dating just vanishes into thin air?
* Gritted your teeth into dust while you fork over your hard-earned cash for yet  another effing bridal shower gift?
* Endured the searing agony of a Brazilian wax just to please a man?

Then On Being a Bachelor: Thoughts on Dating, Mating and Relating (Virgil Press, Inc.), by Blane Bachelor — an internationally published author (she not-quite-so humbly adds) — is just the read for you. The book, her first, is a collection of her best and funniest “On Being a Bachelor” columns about the ups and downs of dating, mating and relating. 

A few favorite morsels from the book:

  • On guys who stop calling out of the blue: “It’s fair to say women are more often on the receiving end of the Disappearing Act, after the guy slips off into the night like the Dickless Horseman, never to be seen or heard from again except in dating horror stories.”
  • On why bridal showers suck: “Why should I have to cough up $50 for a scrap of silk the bride will wear for exactly 2.4 seconds before her new hubby rips it off?”
  • On a first-time Brazilian: “It felt like I had just done the splits onto a sizzling George Foreman grill.”

Think this sounds like a book just for gals? Think again, fellas. There’s plenty in here for you, too, like:

  • Premature Emotionation : Are you unwittingly driving away dozens of women with this dangerous affliction?
  •  How to improve your hunting skills in the dating game
  • The unexpected $30 purchase that will get you more attention from women than you ever dreamed
