She send me an article about the "Straight White Boys Texting" blog that also mentioned Aziz's upcoming book. Drawn by the strong sociological research focus I decided to give it a go. I had no idea.

Secondly, the research presented in this book is impressive, while still so clearly written and spiced with humor and clever remarks that I highlighted I guess I would like the guys' shows In fact, the book is besides informative also super entertaining.
A challenging combination but Aziz nailed it brilliantly. And thirdly, thanks for the advice: I am sure guilty of a few "The modern romance" faux pas myself and will take his advice to heart. Especially the part where he tells us about first changing his lifestyle to fit that of his dream girl, in The modern romance to finally meet his dream girl which - surprise!

Of course, all this data is presented in an Aziz way - full of humor in the best way possible. Not once did I feel bored about all the numbers that were on the pages, and I found myself laughing out loud a lot every so often from the ridiculous stories Aziz came up with. Most of the book is focused around online dating and how the current generation is navigating themselves through this new world.
Why is it so hard to feel satisfied when there are so many options at our fingertips? How did people even find anybody before with their limited options? What happens after we The modern romance settle on one person? Will we be more satisfied with our choices 20 years in the future? This book tries to answer a lot of those questions by looking at older generations before us and how it eventually evolved to where we are now.
