I only enter sweepstakes for prereleases I can imagine myself reading and enjoying, and The Science of Single was no exception. The many, many dates she went on weren’t all perfect, that’s for sure, but they weren’t horrendous either. I almost wish she had taken her experience and fictionalized it. Through the whole book, I kept thinking, “She’s not whole.It’s the true story of author Rachel Machacek’s quest to decipher the mixed signals of the dating scene by conducting an experiment: one year of dating, employing strategies ranging from matchmakers to self-help books to online networking sites along the way, with the hope of finding “a better way to date.” I wish I could say the results were as interesting as the hypothesis.

What's the best thing to do when you're putting yourself out there in a public forum, being vulnerable and honest about your wants and needs when suddenly someone rolls an armored tank right up to your online doorstep and points the barrel at you? Believe it or not, sometimes a negative approach is someone's way of trying to get your attention. Any moment you waste defending your position or becoming agitated in return is one too many. Nothing you say will change their opinion, and quite frankly, would you really want to date them if it did? You'd rather have the one that appreciates you for who you are than an entire army that wants you for who you aren't.
After years of dating without a connection, Rachel Machacek vowed to try a more dedicated, less slipshod, more scientific way of finding love.
This was in no way a scientific study, and in every way a chance for the author to make some money writing about her dating life. I knew from the moment I picked up this book that it was probably a waste of my time, but I read it anyway -- mostly because I liked the cover and because the concept of scientifically researching dating strategies sounded somewhat interesting.
