In this modern guide to finding and keeping love, Paul presents a refreshingly optimistic and plainspoken dating guide to finding romance—both on- and off-line.
Finding and keeping a mate has never been harder. New rules are needed to navigate the complicated and changing modern-love landscape. If someone wants to find “the one,” what are the guidelines he or she needs to know, now that online dating and Google-searching a prospective love interest are the norm?
Happily married for 10 years, Paul is a husband, a father, and a rising star in the matchmaking world. In It’s Complicated (But It Doesn’t Have to Be), Paul tackles relevant questions such as:
*Is marriage right for my personality type?
*Do the rules of chivalry still apply?
*How can I date more than one person without hurt feelings?
*What is the best mode of communication (text messages, phone, e-mail, etc.) for asking someone out?
With an appealing mix of humor, candor, and real-world examples, It’s Complicated (But It Doesn’t Have to Be) is a breath of fresh air in the dating guide category, offering a message of eternal optimism from a man who believes in true love—and practices what he preaches.

Name: Paul Carrick Brunson
Hometown: Washington, D.C.
First Date: I was an early dater...very early. I recall in the 4th grade, after school, walking a girl to the playground and sharing my lunch with her that I saved from earlier that day. We ate, talked and played on the swings. Good times!
Best Date: Hands down, the first date with my wife was my all-time best date. It was over 12 years ago, and I still think about it often. We ate at Pizza Hut; I picked cheese out of her braces. Then, we saw Hell Raiser 2, and she talked through the entire movie. We then drove to a nearby beach and ran into a homeless gentleman that did the most amazing magic tricks we had ever seen. Afterward, we sat in my car and fell asleep talking. Thirteen hours total of first date magic. Best date of my life!
