Publisher's Summary

"When it comes to dating, I seem to be going around in a circle. The ones I want don't want me, and the ones who want me, I don't want." (Amelia)

I don’t know, I just think there’s too much miscommunication between guys and girls. I mean, no one knows what the f--k is going on. We need to have the discussion. We need to vent it and get it out in the open,” I said, grabbing my drink from the bedside table.

_______ sat on the edge of the bed and put his shirt back on. “What do you want to know?”

“I just want to know what guys are thinking. I mean we have sex and stuff and nothing lasting ever comes of it,” I said, taking a cigarette out and lighting it. I knew I shouldn’t be smoking in the room, but I was too drunk to care.

“I don’t think I should say. We don’t know everything girls are thinking. I think some things are better left unsaid.”

“I want to know. I’d prefer s--t to be clearer, because I’m always confused,” I replied. I could tell he was still a bit sexually frustrated, but he seemed okay to chat.

“Go ahead then, ask what you want. I’ll try give it to you as straight as I can. But don’t hate the messenger,” _______ responded, taking the champagne from my hand and having some.

“I won’t, promise. So why do guys act so interested and then not get in touch at all? ?” I asked.

Mixed Feelings

Definitely didn’t hate this one but it’s not a love either. Some of the key points made sense to situations in my own life while others didn’t. Even had a few light bulb moments too. However, there were times through the book where I felt Emilia was a bit pathetic and mega whiny. But as I continued listening I realized the same way Emilia felt and the same things and even thoughts she had, are the same many other girls (and guys) have in real life. Love is complicated and so is breaking up and/or dealing with rejection. Feelings in general are complicated! There isn’t a wrong or right way to approach these things and The Modern Break-Up is a good example of that. At the end of the day, one common feeling for us all is to be loved.

Chilling how accurate this is!

The way she described her feelings about “Jay” and how he treated her, snapped me out of my toxic cycle.

The modern breakup book

For anyone who has spent some time reflecting on modern day dating and how to set boundaries for themselves, this book won’t really have any eye opening facts that’ll change your life. It might manifest what you already know though.
For women who constantly fall for the wrong guys and really don’t know why - this might be a good place to start and think about your relationships and yourself and how it’s all connected.

Honest portrayal of relationships and breakups

enjoyable and interesting ,from different perspectives, this book explains the varying emotions that come in waves after a break up, and that the relationship we have with ourselves is the bench mark for how others treat us.
