I’m sooo excited about my brand new book coming out this summer from St. Martin’s!  It’s funny, it’s romantic,  it’s perfect for the beach, and I love the cover so much I get googly every time I look at it.  I hope you love it too.

SINGLE-MINDED by Lisa Daily

Alex has planned and executed her life with laser focus since she first met her future husband at the play-doh table on the first day of kindergarten. They have a terrific life, a gorgeous house on the bay, and fantastic careers they love. There’s only one problem: Alex’s husband has a secret. A big one.

Now, Alex’s perfectly planned life has completely fallen apart, her biological clock is starting to feel like the timer on a nuclear device, and she finds herself drooling over her completely-dreamy-but-definitely-off-limits client, a star chef opening a hot new restaurant.

Armed with dating guidance from her oddball collection of advisers―including her gay ex-husband, a foul-mouthed political consultant, a perkily masochistic yogi, and a pot-smoking octogenarian―Alex navigates the booby-trapped world of modern dating, in her search for a second chance at love.

Praise for Single-Minded

“Lisa Daily weaves a gut-wrenching yet hilarious send-up of love, betrayal and redemption.
A terrifically fun, emotionally-packed story in which I anxiously turned the pages rooting for our heroine to get her groove back.” ―Jenny Gardiner, USA Today bestselling author of Slim to None and the It’s Reigning Men series

“Pack this book in your beach bag. Every person who has navigated the singles scene (or watched horrified on the sidelines) will find plenty to make them laugh out loud in Daily’s Single-Minded.” ―Eileen Cook, bestselling author of With Malice, and Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood

Single-Minded is funny and full of charm―Lisa Daily crafts her stories with heart and humor.” ―Mia King, bestselling author of Good Things

“Quirky and uproarious and sexy as hell, Single-Minded is as much fun as you can have sitting down. The premise is a howler. And it has MOVIE written all over it.” ―Michael Alvear, bestselling author of Men Are Pigs But We Love Bacon and Alexander the Fabulous, and cohost of HBO’s Sex Inspectors

“Look no further―you’ve found your latest and most essential beach read. Lisa Daily knows exactly how to mix hilarious with romantic, topical with heartwarming, and pain with extremely satisfying vindication. With a fantastic group of characters who leap from the page, and a fast-paced, emotional journey that will keep you chuckling and cheering, Single-Minded is a winner.” ―Danielle Younge-Ullman, author of Everything Beautiful is Not Ruined

“Clever, warm and funny….reading Lisa Daily’s Single-Minded is like spending time with your favorite single friend who has the most hilariously awful dating stories. A breezy yet empowering novel about second chances and learning to let go, Single-Minded had me craving Cajun food and dreaming of a Florida beach vacation. I absolutely adored it!” ―Jess Riley, author of Driving Sideways

“Beach read perfection! Single-Minded is a witty, funny story about what happens when your life doesn’t turn out like you planned. Order yourself a strawberry daiquiri, and slap on some SPF 50 ― and settle in for a rocking-fun read.” ―Lisa Earle McLeod, Buffalo News

“That book that makes you put your hand on your heart when you read the last page―this is it. Enchanting, endearing, and endlessly funny! Lisa Daily is the hilarious new queen of the summer beach read.” ―Heidi Godman, WSRQ

Lisa-Daily-Daytime-Show-GraphicTHE FUTURE OF DATING IS FEMALE.
The number one turn-on for male daters this year? Female entrepreneurs. This week on the Daytime show I’m talking about some more of the fascinating facts from the SINGLES IN AMERICA study, including what the explosive resurgence of the feminist movement means for single women and men. (Woohoo!)

The takeaway:

What does the term feminism mean to daters?
Men & women are equal: 47% women/37% of men
It means a lot of different things: 43% women/42 men
No idea 5% of women/8% of men

Why are feminists are desirable dates?
78% offer to pay on a date
95% take charge in the bedroom
25% initiate sex for the first time

How do singles define a “strong woman”?
confidence 73% women/64% men
intelligence 65% women/ 69% of men
independence 67% women 53% of men

Good news!

Lisa-Daily-Daytime-Show-GraphicApparently that cracked iPhone screen is killing your love life.

(Or possibly the fact that you’re not using an iPhone at all.) The 2017 Singles in America study has just been released, with some weird. wonderful, and surprising new findings about who’s looking for love, how they feel about it, and what you can do to improve your chances of finding it. This week on the Daytime Show, I’m digging into the numbers to tell you what they mean for your love life.

Because that’s how much I care, baby.

Evilcat
In honor of International Cat Day, I’m re-posting a video I did a few years ago about how your cat(s) (and conversely, if you’re a guy, your snake…) might be making you less datable online. I know you love Fluffers to the moon and back — maybe just save him for like, date 3.

How fast do you know if you’ve met “The One”? Who falls in love faster, men or women? This week on the Daytime Show Cyndi Edwards and I talked about a brand new study from Plenty Of Fish that found some fascinating insights on love at first sight, how long it really takes to know if he’s “The One”, and what that concept even means. (Similar tastes in burrito toppings? A willingness to massage your feet”

Check out the segment below.

Netflix-Lisa-Daily-Jerry-Pennacoli-Cyndi-Edwards-Daytime-TV-Show

We’ve all heard the expression “Netflix and chill” as a term for staying in, snuggling on the couch and binge-watching your favorite shows together with your sweetie. (One of my FAVORITE dates, btw.) But guess what? A recent study found that your Netflix and chill habits might actually have an impact on your relationships. This week on Daytime I talked with Cyndi Edwards and Jerry Pennacoli about Netflix, your favorite shows, and love. Check out the video below.

(And thanks, fellow well-meaning grammar fanatics. I know the posted video says “effects” not “affects” — Daytime has been alerted :-)

Lisa-Daily-Daytime-Show-GraphicDo you find yourself attracted to married or unavailable partners? Do you love the challenge? Or the thrill of seeing if you can get him to choose you over someone else? Do you fall for guys who just can’t or won’t give you their full attention or desire? You know, the workaholics, addicts, commitment-phobes, and the I love you but I don’t know if I’m in love with you types. Well, it turns out your brain may be to blame. Today on the Daytime Show I talked with Michelle Phillips about a new study that found that mate-poachers’ brains are actually wired differently than everyone else’s.

Singles-6-degrees-of-BBQ-Lisa-Daily
Memorial Day kicks off the summer social, dating, and party season — and just in case you’re still on the fence about hitting that Memorial Day BBQ, I’d like to offer up a little incentive for my single friends out there.

Six Degrees of BBQ is one of my absolute favorite ways to meet someone great. You know how you always invite the same seventeen people to all of your parties? Next time, add some new blood to the old gang. With Six Degrees of BBQ, everybody you invite brings someone that nobody else in the group knows. Think of it as six degrees of separation, only backwards. Voila! You’ll have a party full of brand-new people who already get along great with your closest friends. Kind of a “people potluck.”

Here’s why it works: Research shows that we tend to have lots of things in common (level of education, happiness, intelligence, career standing, values about issues like money and politics, as well as similar levels of mental health, etc) with people who are already tight with our closest friends. But there’s even more — those similarities extend to things like what neighborhoods we live in, the dry cleaner or peanut butter we prefer, and whether we get our pasta sauce at Trader Joe’s or the Piggly Wiggly.

We attract and seek out friendships and relationships with other people who are a lot like us. Everybody does, which is why it’s way easier to meet someone you’re compatible with if they’ve already been “pre-screened” by your friends, or your friends’ friends than say, via an online dating site or Tinder.

So for your next party, ask all your friends to bring a friend nobody else knows. You never know who you might meet.

XO,
lisasig
