Hannah is a great character, so well written and rounded and it was a real joy to follow her on her journey to find happiness again. I loved her down - to - earthnesness and that she maintained a healthy distance to herself, not taking herself too seriously. She had moments of breakdown which only made her feel so much more realistic, because who wouldn't have a breakdown when in her shoes?
The things she goes through are sometimes heart - breakingly sad and sometimes laugh - out - loud funny but always realistic and there were moments that I found myself cringing with embarrassment, saying "Oh God" and rolling my eyes but mostly I just wanted that everything went great for Hannah. There was one character that bothered me a lot and it was Esther, Hannah's friend from work.

I think I looked through Esther right at the very beginning and it frustrated me that Hannah hasn't seen what kind of person Esther is. This was this typical kind of toxic relationship and as much as it annoyed me that Hannah sticks with Esther, I also could understand and see the mechanisms that pulled her back from finishing this relationship and why she always tried to engage Esther in her activities.IELTS Important Speaking Topic - A Person You Would Like To Meet / A Famous Person -
However, Esther, a very big no - go from me. But my most anticipated part of the book was when Hannah eventually agreed to join a couple of online dating sites! You know how much I loved stories about dates, blind dates, online dating etc, no idea why to be honest, I just love them, and each time I can't wait to see on which levels of hilarity the author is going to take us with.
I laughed a lot, and found some of her discoveries poignant too - and had tears in my eyes towards the end of her tale.
This book's a consciousness-raiser, not only for those looking for a partner, but for those who are passionate about examining what makes life meaningful. You don't have to be a Christian for it to speak to you I'm not ; and I rather hope for a sequel to HopefulGirl's story, wherever her search takes her. Singles have identified with her story and married readers have taken up her cause, offered advice and shared their own stories of how they met their man.
Would Like to Meet by Polly James
We've laughed, booed, cheered and winced over some of her encounters, and everyone is desperate for a happy ending for our heroine. But alongside all the fun, HopefulGirl has provided a real insight into the Christian dating scene and the challenges facing single Christian women searching for love. Amid a host of colourful characters including PilotMan, NastyMan and CrewCutMan, plus the ever helpful TopBro, she highlights the problems of an imbalance of the sexes in our churches, of unrealistic expectations, and unhelpful comments and matchmaking from well-meaning friends and church members.
This is a warm, witty and engaging story, which tackles a major issue for many women and men in our churches today. I had to call him an ambulance. This weekend's post consisted of a bank statement and a gas bill.
If you are one of those girls or maybe guys who need a few laughs to get you past the puppy love couples, I suggest Would Like to Meet to keep you pleased throughout Valentine's Day. HopefulGirl writes this guide to surviving the internet and speed dating world as a Christian. She is a year-old who was recently dumped when her ex-fianc e, Partyboy, who booted her for another girl last Christmas.
She had spent her entire life with him and suddenly she found herself nearing 40 without a child or a ring. The easy read may only take a few hours to finish - her stories are hilarious.
The book remarks on four years of this, but each date brings fresh laughs. The men she manages to find are extraordinary and her struggles will keep readers turning the page. While it's terrible to find giggles in her journey, her humor is what keeps the men clutching to her. She's genuinely honest and does not settle which is admirable.
Her book is a true inspiration for singles. The main lesson she reflects on is always keeping the faith and leaving it up to God.
In her journey, she relies on BestGirl and TopBro for encouragement and words of advice. Her fight for love leads her to cheating men, commitmentphobes and even to switch churches for men. She covers the 'three date rule', being 'mortgaged', rekindling high school feelings, and whether going 'dutch' makes men feel cheap or impressed. She's completely raw since her identity is a mystery.
Would Like to Meet
Her secret to surviving the 'commercialzed' Valentine's Day? That is the way many people see the Christian singles scene with its various dances, speed dating and dating websites. Well done to HopefulGirl the identity of the author is anonymous - probably to protect the blokes she dates for an accurate and sensitive portrayal of four years of ploughing through the Christian dating scene. Based on a column from Woman Alive magazine, BRF have published this page account of the highlights and cringe worthy low lights of a woman who has decided to commit herself to finding a Christian bloke.
It's an easy, quick and amusing read. You can picture the various blokes; Beardyman, Techiman, Dimpleman and Countryman, as they arise. Don't be put off by the pink on the front cover and the lighthearted tone.
