David McCleary keeps us smiling and thinking, as he fights through his personal struggles with insecurity and ego. Watching David persevere is one hell of a wild ride.
Can you imagine the horror and embarrassment of your girlfriend, someone you loved, fooling around with other men the very first time she met your best friends? What if you two got into a huge argument while away on a vacation with those friends? Then, what if during that fight she punched you right in the eye?!
David McCleary's story is the story of anyone who has ever struggled with love or dating. In his heart, David is a romantic, jilted by bad experiences and frustrated with his failures and insecurities. Meanwhile all of his friends seem to have this whole romance thing down pat.
I started reading the book and could not put it down to save my life. From one college student to a former one, who is in a "rut" with women, this book spoke to me and gave me insights on how to better up my "game" for lack of a better word. I read the whole book, cover to cover in roughly 2 days, that is how good I thought it was. I look forward to reading Red Heads and Bedspreads next.
Intriguing, I couldn't put it down until I finished. Interesting perspective from the males point of view. I believe he hit every emotion in the first few chapters and kept it going throughout the book! Can't wait for the sequel! 🙂
The author was incredible at conveying the emotional toil and nervousness of many feeble attempts to just meet women (just hi? That's it?) and then date. The book relates, the book is funny, and there's so much more I want to still know about the characters. Please write a prequel, sequel, anything!
Dating Isn't What It Used To Be...

My name is Kyle Milligan, and I am the creator of the Hang-Ups and Hangovers series. The intent behind writing Hang-Ups and Hangovers was to present readers, like you, with a real and relatable story about the challenges of dating for 20-somethings these days.
Dating is HARD. Personally, I sucked at dating when I first tried it. BAD. And then I continued to suck for many months (well, maybe years) after that. My friends constantly gave me (mostly bad) advice and I blindly tried it ALL.
Fortunately for you, I have some pretty funny, and often embarrassing, stories to share as a result. These tales are packed full of wisdom and practical dating advice and I have piled most of them into my books for you to enjoy. But don't feel guilty for laughing at my screw-ups, I've moved on...mostly.
