The laugh-out-loud true story of one girl's experience of life on Tinder. Rosy Edwards is the epitome of a contradictory twenty-something year old. She's frugal when it comes to food shopping, but is willing to splash out on shampoo. She's career minded, she just doesn't know which career to have in mind right now. And although she's happy being single, a part of her kind of wants a boyfriend. So after a few unsuccessful dates with friends of friends (read: being forced to date their shortest/dullest/oddest acquaintance), she put herself on Tinder, the app that has transformed the world of online dating. And she soon learns the unspoken rules the hard way: always reject a guy with black and white profile pics (he is ginger and/or ugly); is wearing a hat (bald); has a shot of his torso (moron) or is not standing beside anything scaleable (5"8 and under). And then there are the dates themselves. From a sky-high dinner date to a borderline drug bust in Chelsea, Rosy has experienced it all, swinging through her love life on the trapeze of Tinder. She falls for the wrong guys, ditches the nice ones, but can she finally find her happy ending. Brilliantly honest and hilariously funny, Rosy's story shows us all that the key to a successful love life could just be a swipe away.
"From Belle du Jour to Bridget Jones, the sexploit confessional has long been a popular genre, but Edwards's new book, Confessions of a Tinderella , takes it to new levels of disclosure as she 'fesses up about her real-life experiences of dating and dumping men on Tinder. Like a real-life Bridget [Jones], Edwards recounts getting laid, getting into scrapes, her biscuit-and-booze binges and, above all, wanting to meet Mr Right and marry him." Evening Standard
