Trish Ryan was the quintessential successful thirtysomething woman: she had a career as an attorney, a nice car, and a succession of men clamoring for her affection. But despite all her accomplishments, the things by which she defined her life continually left her disappointed --- especially when it came to dating. Like the heroines of chick-lit novels and Sex and the City, she couldn't escape her bad luck with men: men who cheated, who left her, who made her a lesser version of herself.
While recovering from yet another breakup, Ryan set out to find the key to making love --- and life --- work. She stocked up on advice books, pored over self-help articles, hired a life coach, and vigorously applied every suggestion to her life. One week she feng shui-ed her apartment, the next she did miracle meditations. She attended Mass, church, service, temple, sacred circle, dance of the inner woman, and a ceremony to mark the movement of Jupiter into her Second House. She even landed a job with a bestselling self-help author and relationship expert. But instead of finding the happily-ever-after ending she was looking for, Ryan realized all her self-improvement hadn't truly changed her; she wasn't any more enlightened, and to make matters worse, she still fell for the wrong guy time and time again.
After years of trying everything out there, she hesitantly decided to give God a try. Honest, moving, and laugh-out-loud funny, HE LOVES ME, HE LOVES ME NOT is Ryan's story of how her search for the right guy turned into the search for the right God, and (spoiler alert!) how she wound up with her own fairy-tale ending.
