Publisher's Summary

Online dating. Dating apps. Texting. Social media. Endless swiping in search of forever love. It seems like the more ways technology offers to "connect" us, the less connected we actually are. Modern dating is not for the faint of heart!

Don't Believe the Swipe is not your mother's dating guide. It isn't about "landing a man" or learning to "think like a man" or "getting any man to fall in love with you"; it's about falling in love with yourself and then extending that love to every aspect of your life - including your love life. It's about learning to date without surrendering your power. It's about choosing yourself, regardless of whether someone swipes right or swipes left.

Funny, fresh, and relevant to today's crazy dating world, this book is sure to become your go-to modern dating guide. New York Times best-selling author Mandy Hale draws on her own hilarious and often jaw-dropping experiences to illustrate what it means to stop believing the swipe and start finding love without losing yourself.

There is a way to date with dignity, to refuse to let the swipe rule your life, to stand confident in your worth, and to not settle for less than you deserve. This book is that way.

Sometimes glib mixed with some truth

3/5: It is unfortunate that the overall tone of this book felt glib because there really is some truth in what Hale shares. I am not a fan of the "self help" genre in general, but having entered the wilderness of dating a year ago, I thought I might learn something or at least commiserate in my experience. I did both, so in that way this book was worth the read. I think the way Hale mixed in lingo made the topic feel too breezy and inconsequential when in reality it is of great consequence. Yes, the lingo is real and helpful to know but it felt almost gimmicky and took away from her sincere experience and wisdom.

A good way to “look at yourself in the mirror “

I feel like she’s written this about my life, but I’m 10 years older. I’m not quite in the place to “embrace the singleness “ just yet, but I know at my age I have to STOP not living my life, and waiting on HIM. My life is half over, I can’t wait on him any longer.

I have to agree with another reviewer and say the way the person pronounces “remember” is a bit annoying. But certainly not enough not to listen. She’s very expressive in her reading. Very enjoyable!

A Must Read For Single Ladies

I absolutely loved this book. Being single and dating can be emotionally draining and exhausting. Mandy really helped me understand why things happened and what they meant . This book is very empowering and informative.

GREAT advice for single women

I feel like the best parts of the book came several chapters in...but man, once I got to the meat of the book...Mandy really punched me in the gut with some truth. I loved this book...so much that I will probably listen to it over and over again to really have some of these things sink in.
Only part that annoyed me was the way she prounounced “remember” in her “Rules to Remember” at the end of each chapter 😂 Small annoyance for an otherwise powerful read.

It’s nice to know I’m not alone...

At times (more often than not) it seems as if Mandy is telling my dating story. There are times that I’m dating that I feel like I’m the only one going through being ghosted, etc. but Mandy sharing her journey and giving great bits of advice is comforting.

A must for singles!

I enjoyed this exploration of the world of dating at this time where technology and social media tend to dominate our interactions with others. Definitely worth a listen!

Loved it! A must read for those in the dating game

As someone who has been on and off dating apps for the last two years I can totally relate to so much in this book and Mandy makes so much sense. I am walking away with a better mindset and realising my self worth. I highly recommend every single female (and those in unhappy relationships) to read this!!
