16 Swipes takes you on a journey of discovery through a rinse cycle of Tinder dates, personal encounters, and struggles, as author Mark Powell navigates the sea of online profiles in search of his soul mate.
Through a fair number of swipes and a very unfair number of breakfasts, you'll smile, split your sides laughing and be thankful to have dodged these yourself.
Beyond the humour, you will gain insights into the relationships to avoid, situations to extract yourself from, and the women you should never get serious with. Mark candidly shares his own mistakes so you gain valuable dating lessons and identify with the near misses.
You will sympathise, empathise, and maybe even recognise your own situations as Mark – with his old school values – embarks on a wild ride in our modern dating scene problems in Singapore.
