Happily Never After: A 20-Somethings Guide to Breaking Up, Looking for Love, and Surviving Singledom in the Modern Age of DatingA little over a year since writing, my boyfriend of six years randomly called me up on the phone and dumped me.

Shocked,MoreHappily Never After: A 20-Somethings Guide to Breaking Up, Looking for Love, and Surviving Singledom in the Modern Age of DatingA little over a year since writing, my boyfriend of six years randomly called me up on the phone and dumped me. Shocked, confused, and realizing I knew nothing about dating in the modern world, I was spurred into a research project.

The book is divided into three sections. The first section discusses the things I had to go through in order to heal from a break up: the confusion I felt, the anger, forgiveness, understanding why it wouldn’t work. The second part discusses how, it’s not necessarily losing the person that is the struggle, but rather an identity crisis, and how I overcame that identity crisis, through traveling, going to yoga, and really, just observing the world around me.

The last part covers dating in the modern world- how the dating world has changed, and how I, as a 20-Something, am navigating that, and positioning myself as a single-ite.It is accurate that being a 20-Something sucks.

We are stuck in this awkward stage of being expected to be adults while still carrying some immaturity and fear. And, dating is potentially the worst thing ever, because while you are trying to establish yourself as a professional in your career, your personal life is always in shambles. No matter where we are in the dating cycle–very single, the very beginnings of a relationship, in a relationship, or getting over a relationship–we are always in some kind of state of suffering.

I think that this functions, because when we do get married, we appreciate those years that much more, thus dating becomes a necessary stage we must triumph. I am constantly running into people who are in some place of this continuum, I just want to give them a copy of the manuscript and say, “Here, turn to page 10. I wrote about exactly what you are going through. I think it will help you”.I hope you laugh- I hope you cry- most of all, I hope you resonate with my story, because there is something so universal about being human.And, make sure you read through the entire thing, because I promise there IS a happy ending...The Experts say:Britany Ederveen’s Happily Never After seems at first glance a 20-Something’s guide to breakup survival, but it is so much more than that.

Her lively and engaging storytelling appeals to those of all ages who have found themselves floundering in the face of a breakup. Ederveen has a remarkable ability to reveal her vulnerabilities and to undergo some serious introspection and growth while simultaneously finding the strength to move forward with determination and grace. Her voice is honest, ebullient, witty, and hopeful. In all, Happily Never After is a delightful read!
