Millions of Women are Waiting to Meet You
Sean Thomas

Da Capo Press
Street: 05.01

When freelance journalist Sean Thomas (who’s pushing 40 and still single) is asked by an editor of a men’s magazine to do a cover story about online dating, he was reluctant. Hell, I don’t blame him. After all, internet dating is a little fucking weird, but he accepts the assignment, and eventually that cover story became this memoir. Millions of Women are Waiting to Meet You truly captures the awkwardness that is associated with dating (online or otherwise) and through his trials and tribulations in the online world, readers get to peek at all of his previous conquests. There are prostitutes in Thailand, a near threesome in Russia, abortions and girls that liked anal. The memoir is hilariously awkward and brutally honest, often simultaneously. It lets one glance into the most intimate moments of an individual’s life and begs the question: Is sexual deviancy really all that weird? The memoir is good (until the cliché ending) but I still think that flying to Thailand to fuck some prostitutes isn’t normal. –Jeanette Moses
