I Was Blind (Dating), but Now I See: My Misadventures in Dating, Waiting, and Stumbling into Love
Rische, senior editor of nonfiction books at Tyndale House Publishers, brings a pithy eye to the pitfalls and perils of modern dating in this memoir-cum-instruction manual. After she reaches middle age and sees her friends settled into enduring relationships, Rische scolds herself for not being open to God’s plan. Little does she know that her friends have her back as well. Beginning with the stories of how eight different matchmakers forced her into the dating scene, Rische recounts in painful detail how these dates turned out, filling out each with observations and conclusions relating to her overall journey finding a match.
