Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

Happily single … that’s my story. And I’m sticking with it. 🙂

I heard something about this book. Downloaded it on a whim.

Modern Romance: An Investigation is a research book written by American actor and stand-up comedian Aziz Ansari and American sociologist and New York University professor Eric Klinenberg.

The book was published in 2015 and provides research information exploring the change in romantic society that has occurred in the past decade. …

As a selfish guy who almost never went to any effort to chase any woman I’d seem to be the last person to be interested in modern dating.

Yet I really enjoyed the book. The dating scene in 2015 sounds hilariously dreadful.

I learned a lot from the book.

On the upside, it seems to me that Tinder has got the right model for quickly getting introduced to people who might be a tiny percentage of 1% interested in going out with you.

This is Us – Kate and Toby

Have you been watching This is Us?

It’s excellent.

One of the story lines is the charming romance of two obese characters.


That’s Chrissy Metz as Kate Pearson. And Chris Sullivan as Toby, her boyfriend.

37% of Americans are currently obese (50% obese by 2020).

34% more are currently overweight.

Fad diets and reality TV doctors don’t seem to be helping. Overweight in the 1st world is here to stay, I think.
