For fans of Nick Hornby, Sloane Crosley and Judd Apatow, this is a heartfelt and hilarious memoir about an unexpected break up, a self-imposed year of being single, and how a 'nice guy' survived dating in the 21st century.

Matteson Perry is a Nice Guy. He remembers birthdays, politely averts his eyes on the subway, and enjoys backgammon. He's a serial monogamist, and he's never asked a stranger out. But when the girl he plans on marrying dumps him, he decides to turn his life around. He comes up with The Plan: 1. Be single for a year. 2. Date a lot of women. 3. Hurt no one's feelings. He's not out to get revenge, or even to become The Pickup Artist; he just wants to disrupt his pattern, have some fun, and discover who he is when he's unattached (much like a male Taylor Swift). A quick-witted Everyman, Matteson throws himself into the modern world of courtship and digital dating, only to discover that the even the best-laid plans won't necessarily get you laid.

Award-winning storyteller Matteson Perry brings us into the inner sanctum of manhood, charting the highs and lows of single life and the lessons he learned along the way. Candid, relatable, and devastatingly fun...
