A LIGHT-HEARTED, INTIMATE AND EMPHATICALLY FEMINIST HISTORY OF DATING

'A new approach to romance . . . The heroines of Regency novels could teach today's young women a trick or two' Sunday Times

'Entertaining and well-researched' The Lady

'Pacey, intelligent and authoritative with bags of wit' Law Gazette

'A whistle-stop tour of dating through history' History Extra

What if Mr Darcy had simply been able to swipe right?

Dating has never been easy. The road to true love has always been rutted with heartbreak, but do we have it any easier today?

How did Victorians 'come out'? How did love blossom in war-torn Europe? And why did 80s' video-dating never take off?

Bursting with little-known facts and tantalising tales of lovelorn men and besotted women, Nichi Hodgson's intriguing history of amorous relationships, from enamoured Georgians to frenziedly swiping millennials (and everyone in between) may leave you grateful that you live - and love - today.
