Dedicated to all single people looking for love and 30 years in the making, 99 Types of Guys: A Humorous Collection of Dating Tips and Misadventures by Stephanie Bailey (Miss-Adventures Press), aims to provide laughs and encouragement for anyone who dates men, without bashing them.
Bailey, a long-time love coach and expert, conceived of the 99 types of men featured in her book by using her own considerable dating experience and that of other women she knows. Among the types of men Bailey has identified are the Doggie Dater who makes you question if he is dating you—or his dog; the Baby Talker who thinks baby talk is sexy; the Holiday Saboteur who breaks up with you on your birthday, anniversary or some other celebratory date that will forever be ruined; and the Sports Fanatic who is addicted to football, basketball, hockey, soccer, and more. Then there are better known types such as the Liar, Metrosexual and Narcissist.
In the book’s first chapter she writes, “I have dated a LOT of men (probably more than I should admit). I started this book in my early 20s when I was naïve, vulnerable, carefree, and a bit promiscuous. Almost 30 years later, I’ve dated enough men to piece together my simple philosophy—and no, it isn’t revolutionary. I’ve learned the more you date, the better you understand yourself and your relationship essentials; therefore, the more equipped you are to find your ultimate match. So exciting!”
In an interview, Bailey, who found her true love with Damon at 47, can talk about the:
- Need for ditching timelines and expectations
- Intricacies of dating a Yoga Man.
- Importance of self-love
- Necessity of remaining hopeful that good guys are out there
