I Suck at Girls by Justin Halpern

Description

“Human beings fear the unknown. So, whatever's freaking you out, grab it by the balls and say hello. Then it ain't the unknown anymore and it ain't scary. Or I guess it could be a shitload scarier.”

Fans of the #1 bestseller Sh*t My Dad Says will recognize the always-patient voice of Justin Halpern's dad as it crackles through the pages of this hysterical new book. The story begins when Justin takes his dad out to lunch to announce that he's decided to propose to his girlfriend.

“You've been dating her for four years,” his dad replies. “It ain't like you found a parallel fucking universe.”

But eventually he gives Justin some advice: that he should take a day off and think back over everything he's learned in life about women, relationships, and himself before making his decision. And that's just what Justin does—revisiting everything from his disastrous childhood crushes to the night he finally lost his virginity while working as a dishwasher at Hooters.

I Suck at Girls is full of his dad's patented brand of wisdom. But it's also full of new characters just as funny as his dad—from his brother, who provides insights into wedding night rituals (“You stand in one corner of the room, and she stands in the other. You each take off one piece of clothing at a time”) to his first boss, who warns Justin to man up: “That's what a man does. He takes his shots and then he scrubs the shit out of some dishes.” The result is a pilgrim's progress through the landscape of sex and love—by one of the funniest writers at work today.

Editorial Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month, May 2012: Sh*t My Dad Says was a runaway bestseller and in his sophomore effort, I Suck at Girls, Justin Halpern proves he’s not just a one hit wonder. Halpern’s sarcastic, utterly lovable dad once again shares his pearls of wisdom–including the best advice I’ve seen on the subject of getting married–but it’s Justin himself who takes center stage this time. Relationships provide great comedic material and Halpern makes the most of his experiences coming of age amidst the opposite sex. From his first crush (yes, he made her cry) to searching for his wild side on a booze-fueled trip to Ibiza, to meeting the girl of his dreams and asking her to stand guard at the bathroom door (no drugs, just a bad BK chicken griller)–Halpern puts it all out there and, as his dad might say, I laughed my ass off. –Seira Wilson

My mom pulled me out of line to take this, by saying “Justy, you're so cute, lemme see your little face.”

My little league all-stars jersey. That is the pose of a confident young man.

Senior year of high school. Finally put on some weight. Just starting to get a receding hairline. Well played, God.
