The New York Times bestselling authors of Nice Is Just a Place in France and When’s Happy Hour? and creators of the online humor and advice phenomenon Betches.com and Instagram account @Betches explain the brutal truths of how to date like a true betch, with insights from the Head Pro.
In the age of Tinder, Hinge, or any other dating app that matches you with randos, the dating game has grown complex and confusing. Cue the Betches—first, we helped you win at basically everything, and now we’re going to help you win the most important battle a betch can face: dating.
Maybe you’re a Delusional Dater who needs to get in touch with reality (seriously, he’s just NOT that f***ing into you) or perhaps you’re a TGF who needs to stop being so desperate and start playing the game. Or maybe you’re just tired of swiping left and ready for the pro of your dreams to put a 15-karat diamond ring on it so you can stop pretending to do work. Either way, we’ve got you covered.
So put away the Ben & Jerry’s fro-yo (just because it’s low fat doesn’t mean it’s okay to eat the whole tub) and start dating like a winner.
"Guys are a nightmare. Dating is a nightmare. I'm a nightmare. But this book makes sense of it all, which is all I could ask of a romance novel. This was a romance novel right?"
– Babe Walker, New York Times bestselling author of PSYCHOS: A White Girl Problems Book
"A necessity for any girl who doesn’t want to die alone. Blunt, irreverent, and oh-so-spot on, I only ever want the cold, hard truth from a betch."
– New York Times bestselling author Jessica Knoll
"Are you a betch looking for love? The meme queens behind online phenom @Betches pack their dating bible with Beyoncé quotes, Bridesmaids references...and legit advice."
Praise for The Betches
“If you’re not following [the] Betches already, then what have you even been doing all this time on Instagram?”
“Because we’re all a little betchy.”
“The creators of Betches Love This tackle life’s difficult challenges (frenemies, boyfriends, hangovers) with a satirical guide about ‘how to win at basically everything.’”
– Marie Claire, on NICE IS JUST A PLACE IN FRANCE
“Few . . . skewer the artificial life so sharply.”
– Rolling Stone
"[The Betches'] website and bestselling book...are satisfying because they're anthropologically detailed and because they spell out stuff people think but don't always want to say out loud, just like a good shit-talking betch should."
