Oh my gawd, I had a blast on Suncoast View talking about my brand new summer romance Single-Minded!

In case you missed it, here’s the skinny on the book:

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.

I hope you laugh so hard you snort.

TINDER MAY BE SHEDDING ITS REPUTATION AS A HOOKUP APP. “Swipe right” dating apps often get a bad rap, but new data suggests that users of hookup apps may be more commitment-minded than other daters. This week on DAYTIME, I’m talking about a new study that found that Tinder daters might be more commitment-minded than you thought — and why couples who meet online transition to marriage more quickly.

In other news, I’ve got a brand new laugh-out-loud novel coming out this summer (yep, beach read!) called SINGLE-MINDED, about a woman who marries her childhood sweetheart and then finds herself dating for the first time in her life at 31 when her marriage unexpectedly ends in divorce.Single-Minded-funny-beach-read-by-Lisa-Daily

Lisa Daily Dating Expert Daytime Show
More than two million women and men will get divorced in 2017, and if you’re one of them, you might be starting to panic about now. This week on the Daytime show, I talked about 5 strategies to keep your divorce from destroying you — from finances to how to tell your kids to what you MUST know to save your sanity. (Even when it seems that everyone else around you has clearly lost theirs!) Plus, we’ll talk about that awful feeling that you’ll die alone with only your cat for company — and that no one will ever want to date you or have sex with you again. (Trust me, they will.)

For more divorce, relationship, and dating advice, tune in to DAYTIME every Tuesday. Check your local listings for details on times and stations.

If you just need a laugh to forget your divorce troubles, I’ve got laugh-out-loud romantic comedy coming out this summer (yep, beach read!) called SINGLE-MINDED, about a woman who marries her childhood sweetheart and then finds herself dating for the first time in her life at 31 when her marriage unexpectedly ends in divorce.

Brad-Pitt-GQ-Style-04

EVEN BRAD PITT GETS HIS HEART BROKEN. Brad Pitt opened up about his family being “ripped apart” and his divorce from Angelina Jolie in GQ last week. This week on the DAYTIME show I talked about what he (and you!) can do to heal heartbreak and get through your divorce in one piece — including why it’s bad for you to blame your partner, why it takes the “dumpee” and the “dumper” more or less time to move on after the breakup or divorce, when we should expect to see Brad Pitt back out on the dating market (and why he should wait), the most important thing you need to do during your divorce, and what to do when you’re missing your kids like crazy during the other parent’s visitation time.

Check it out, here:

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.
