How to Date Men When You Hate Men is a comedy philosophy book aimed at interrogating what it means to date men within the trappings of modern society. Blythe Roberson’s sharp observational humor is met by her open-hearted willingness to revel in the ugliest warts and shimmering highs of choosing to live our lives amongst other humans. She collects her crushes like ill cared-for pets, skewers her own suspect decisions, and assures readers that any date you can mess up, she can top tenfold. And really, was that date even a date in the first place?

With sections like Real Interviews With Men About Whether Or Not It Was A Date; Good Flirts That Work; Bad Flirts That Do Not Work; and Definitive Proof That Tom Hanks Is The Villain Of You’ve Got Mail, How to Date Men When You Hate Men is a one stop shop for dating advice when you love men but don't like them. 

You can preorder How to Date Men When You Hate Men at Amazon, Indiebound, Barnes and Noble, and Books-a-Million.

Men oppress us; we also want to smooch them. Blythe manages to not only laugh at the pain of holding these two truths at once, but to find meaning, inspiration and empowerment in it.

Funny, sharp, and feminist fun in a way we’re led to believe isn’t possible. You’ll have a blast reading this and then date…or not date anyone because you are living your best single life with new best friend Roberson by your side.
— Phoebe Robinson, NYT bestselling author of YOU CAN'T TOUCH MY HAIR
An incredibly funny read that was surely not written when Blythe was supposed to be working for me.
— Stephen Colbert
Roberson looks through a millennial lens at modern love in this laugh-out-loud commentary on dating. This is the perfect book for women of all ages who have found that, despite their best efforts, dating men rarely works out in their favor.
— Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
The title of Roberson’s first book sounds like a dating manual; it is so much better than that. Instead of useful advice…She helps the reader digest ideas about soul-crushing systematic oppression with her absurdist humor. Roberson’s fresh approach to romantic love will nonetheless satisfy readers of Phoebe Robinson and other feminist comedy writers.
