Singular Images: Essays on Remarkable Photographs

Передня обкладинка

The "Modern Day Matchmaker" presents a refreshingly optimistic and plainspoken dating guide to finding romance--both on- and off-line.

Finding and keeping a mate has never been harder. New rules are needed to navigate the complicated and changing modern-love landscape. If someone wants to find "the one," what are the guidelines he or she needs to know, now that online dating and Google-searching a prospective love interest are the norm?

Happily married for ten years, Paul Carrick Brunson is a husband, a father, and a rising star in the matchmaking world. In It's Complicated (But It Doesn't Have to Be), Brunson tackles relevant questions such as:

  • Is marriage right for my personality type?
  • Do the rules of chivalry still apply?
  • How can I date more than one person without hurt feelings?
  • What is the best mode of communication (text messages, phone, e-mail, etc.) for asking someone out?


With an appealing mix of humor, candor, and real-world examples, It's Complicated (But It Doesn't Have to Be) is a breath of fresh air in the dating guide category, offering a message of eternal optimism from a man who believes in true love--and practices what he preaches.

Про автора (2005)

Roger Hargreaves was born in 1935 in Cleckheaton, Yorkshire, England. He is the British cartoonist who created the likes of Mr. Nosey and Mr. Grumpy, the simple little cartoon Mr. Men and Little Miss characters and books. He was the creative director for an advertising agency in London when he got the idea for his books. He first began to market the idea in the early '70's, starting with Mr. Men, which appeared in books, BBC cartoons and as a comic strip in the Daily Mirror. The characters spawned over 700 related products and brought along the introduction of the Little Miss books introduced in the early '80s. The two series reached worldwide sales of 85 million volumes and were printed in over 20 different languages. Hargreaves died on September 12, 1988 in Kent, England.
