Alain De Botton challenges many of the notions that dictate our dating lives.

About this book

In the first instalment of his new Love series, Alain De Botton challenges many of the notions that dictate our dating lives. He observes the current inconveniece of our emotions, illustrates the weaknesses of our predisposed assumptions of what a relationship should look like, and finally, he reminds the readers about the lascivious exquisiteness of the first kiss. He further points out that instead of believing you are the one single flawed being on the face of the earth, you should come to the realisation that being imperfect applies to everyone. The idealised romantic life is a fairy tale and the simple truth is: life is a terrifying ordeal in which all its contestants are equally flawed, wounded and isolated.
