Kelly Rossi’s Dating the Wrong Men: The Misadventurer’s Guide through Bad Relationship Choices, a fresh, entertaining, and comically written memoir of the unbelievable stories of one girl’s misadventures during her twenty plus years of dating disasters. A true guide to love and romance for women working to find their prince in a pond of frogs, Rossi narrates her journey through each chapter highlighting a different ‘wrong man’ personality type that women are faced with in the current dating pool.
“This isn’t another book by an overly confident man psychoanalyzing everything you’re doing wrong, giving you that supposed ‘turn-key’ answer he’s created,” says Rossi. “This is a love story for any woman who has caught herself overanalyzing, making excuses, giving second chances, interpreting text messages, waiting for someone special, or even swearing off love forever.”
Written in a truly unique way, Rossi explores her struggles in the quest to finding love and fulfillment, while learning how to avoid the pitfalls in today’s selfish, male-ego driven society. Readers will laugh and cry as they venture through Rossi’s relatable adventures as she takes you through every outrageous relationship she has ever faced – from the ‘freeloader’ to ‘player’. For the women who constantly find themselves in the cycle of always dating and trying to find Mr. Right, this one-of-a-kind memoir will teach you how to break your frog-kissing habits, find a love you never knew existed, and learn how to hang onto your self-worth, dignity, and sanity!

Kelly Rossi writes this book about her own experiences in dating men…the wrong kind of men. She opens the book by talking about her parents marriage and the fact that she didn’t really know what a loving relationship looks like. From there she moves on to many of her real life dating stories. This isn’t a traditional dating book.
Each chapter tells the story about a guy she dated. At the end of each chapter are signs that you are dating this certain type of man and final thoughts on that type of man. In other chapters she tells about her experiences and then gives resources on how to get help if you are in a similar situation. From funny and good humor to sad and even scary, I felt like I was Kelly’s friend listening to her share her dating adventures with me. As Kelly learned life lesson via the men she was dating, the readers learn them right along with her. I also appreciated the honesty of the author in telling her stories. She didn’t hold anything back which I found refreshing. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
