DESCRIPTION

This is a hilarious novelty guide to traversing the rocky landscape that is dating. Working Hardly at Relationships
categorises three types of partner—the overachiever, the underperformer, and the overachieving underperformer—
and      further           describes          the      relationship   habits   of   each.   There   are      tips   on   a   wide
range of topics, including how to make lazy and cheap seem quaint and romantic and how to avoid commitment.
Some of the main areas covered in this book include Finding the right girl; General principles of dating; Living
together; The Workplace; Her parents; Fighting, Marriage; and The end of the affair.
