If you’re feeling a little bit lonely as a single person during quarantine, there might be a perfect book for you.
For both men and women, “All Good Just A Week Ago: Funny Dating Stories to Help You Keep Your Head in the Game” is chock-full of funny, relatable dating stories put together from interviews.
With teachable moments and unimaginable scenarios, “All Good Just A Week Ago” helps single people keep their heads in the game.
Erika McCall and Niesha Forbes, two best friends, wanted to put their quarantine time to good use, so they set up 50 interviews to gather data and stories for the book.
These stories prove that relationships can make you laugh and roll your eyes instead of cry, all while showing us that we’re not alone.
In 1950, only 22% of Americans were without a romantic partner. In 2019, 124 million Americans were without a partner.
Though the percentage of people in relationships has gone down, the desire to find love and companionship has not.
McCall said, “It’s the year of 20/20 vision, and it’s time for a dating and love revolution.”
Both authors agreed that the revolution begins with this book. With a goal to understand romantic communication and expectations, “All Good Just A Week Ago” uses stories to heal relationships and foster close, loving, committed relationships in a generation obsesses with “hook up culture.”
McCall and Forbes even get into a few of their own stories. McCall herself is single and wants to clear the way for her future husband to enter her life while Forbes is on her way to her third wedding anniversary and hopes that sharing her experience can help bring about mutual respect, kindness and traditional courtship in relationships.
McCall said her story is every woman’s story while Forbes said, “It is critical to know that once you get to a certain age, things you did in your early twenties, all those toxic behavior patterns where you’re not putting your worth above your desire to be with someone, if you don’t do the work on yourself, you will find yourself in your thirties, forties and even fifties, having not learned the important lessons or found true love.”
Following the laughs in the beginning of the book, readers will reach a call to action that encourages men and women to think critically about how to move forward with healthier relationship dynamics.
