Inside you’ll find 40 different boys gone wrong, from The Boy Toy to Midlife Crisis Man, The Gym Rat to The Fixer Upper, and from The Activist to The Couch Potato. Whether you met him at home, at the office, or farther afield, this little gift book will show you how to spot a bad boyfriend from fifty paces.

Special features like the handy “not to be confused with” help you avoid crucial errors in boyfriend handling. For example, no matter how outrageously he compliments your mother, The Parents' Favorite is guaranteed to keep his hands to himself while she’s around. Not so the Boyfriend Who Thinks Your Mom is Hot.

Filled with adorably witty illustrations, interactive checklists, and quizzes, this is an ideal birthday or Galentine’s gift, stocking stuffer, or “cheer up” present after a breakup.
 

Why is it so hard to meet the right guy? You’ve got all the apps, but despite all the swiping (and all the dating!), none of the guys you meet really clicks. Maybe it’s not working because DJ Devil is in the booth, spinning the tracks that keep us all dating a long list of Mr. Wrongs in the search for Mr. Right.

You might even date DJ Devil. You’ll know it the moment you meet a guy you can’t get enough of. He’s the itch you can’t scratch; the one who takes you to places you didn’t know existed; the one you can’t hold on to but can never forget. Just remember, he’s not a keeper.

But sometimes even the Devil takes a night off, allowing you to let the right one in. Enter The Keeper, your one true love. He’s out there somewhere, but finding him takes time and a lot of hands-on research (fun), broken hearts (no fun), and sleepless nights (some of those were really fun!).
