The psychologist who kissed 100 frogs in order to create the perfect dating guide
Modern dating is a numbers game, with limitless options only ever a swipe away. But whether you're looking for something casual or searching for true romance, sifting through countless profiles only to endure a dreadful date can be exhausting. How do you stand out from the crowd and find the person you're looking for?
Enter Psychologist Dr Angela Ahola. When she found herself single again after a long relationship, Angela decided to throw herself headlong into the unfamiliar world of online dating. Armed with her expertise in studying human behaviour, she embarked on an experiment with herself as the test subject: she went on one hundred different dates to learn as much as she could about what makes a successful encounter - and what doesn't.
Backed up by the latest science on personality, relationships and dating, 100 Dates is the ultimate dating handbook. Including advice on everything from figuring out why you want to date through to setting up your profile and finding the right person, Dr Angela is the perfect guide through the thorny wilderness of dating.
Take control of your game.
