Where does a moderately popular internet star who never leaves her house look for potential suitors? Online. Tinder, Bumble, Match.com, OkCupid—I tried them all. My thirty-one-year-old self clicked and swiped her little heart out, leading to more dates than I could count, and more disappointment than I was prepared for.
Maybe you can relate. Maybe you know all too well the perils of modern dating. But let’s say, eventually, you meet someone. You think to yourself, “Wow, they’re perfect! Take me off the market, put a ring on it, knock me up, the whole enchilada, because they are ‘the one.’” Let’s also say that they “feel the same way” about you. Your life starts to make sense! All the pain, heartbreak, and frustration from past failed relationships was worth it. Slow clap.
That’s how I felt about Milos. He was from Europe, a doctor, wealthy, athletic. He had an accent and a dog. Milos was textbook marriage material.
For him it was “love at first sight,” but for me, it was “anxiety on every date.”
Something was telling me to run—but for two years, the only running I did was straight into his arms.
If only I would have listened.
This isn’t a love story.
It’s my story of survival.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Even our worst online dating experiences pale in comparison to the nightmare relationship detailed in YouTube star Brittani Louise Taylor’s riveting memoir. Handsome Milos—a wealthy doctor from Serbia who speaks multiple languages—seems too good to be true when Taylor first connects with him on Tinder. Sure enough, Taylor eventually discovers—too late—that her charming beau is a total fraud; as more truths surface, she even has reason to fear for her life. A Sucky Love Story is a cautionary tale about modern romance told with honest, conversational prose. It’ll leave you contemplating the dangers of swiping right.
I was looking for an online book to read for my book talk at school and I came across this book! I enjoy love stories and also a mystery book and when you put them together... BOOM! It's amazing! I definitely recommend this book. 😊
I hope you never go through this again
Please don’t let this happen to you. Being a nice person etc isn’t enough to stay with someone in a relationship. You have to feel it 150%. Both of you. And be able to notice red flags right away. Don’t let love blind you. Let it guide you.
