I have very exciting news to report! Last week I signed a deal for the long-awaited It’s Not a Match book. And by long-awaited, I mean not awaited at all by anyone, other than me and my cat. But nonetheless, it’s coming. It’s an ebook, being published by Thought Catalog, and will be available on iTunes, Amazon, and I don’t know, Bed Bath & Beyond.com maybe? In the “Beyond” section.
Seriously though, I’m putting together the book now, and it should be available the first week of January. It’ll include some of my favorite columns over the last 3 years, and some new stuff for you loyal readers. I’m very excited. I started this site in the hopes of turning my horrifying dating life long ago, and almost threw in the towel several times. But thanks to you all for continuing to read, comment, email, and share the site with your friends. You’ve kept It’s Not a Match going, hopefully for a long time to come.
While I’m working on the ebook, the site will be a little slower than usual. I’ll still try to post once a week, but it may be brief, or repeats, some preview columns from the book. But I’ll keep you all updated on the progress. Thanks for reading, you guys are the best!
(Oh, and yes, when the book comes out, I’ll no longer be anonymous. Scary!)
Now everyone can stalk you via okc and match! The end of an era, B??
Ugh. I don’t know. Can they, just by knowing my full name? I go back and forth on the issue every hour.
I just finished reading your whole blog today. I found it about a week ago. You have made me laugh, scared me and once i think i even felt a tear.. ok my cat bit me but i have thoroughly enjoyed your comedic style. Good luck with the e-book
Yay! Hats off to you B. It’s about time you were recognized for your comic brilliance.
Congratulations, that’s fantastic!
I don’t know about other websites, but as far as I know, OKCupid doesn’t have a way to search by real name, at least.
Congratulations! I’m very surprised you didn’t choose to go with a pen name, though.
Congrats! I love the blog and look forward to the book. Maybe you should consider a pseudonym so the dating activities can continue (and be shared). :)
OMG you stole my idea lol! I have SO many more stories to tell about Match–it’s not even funny–nothing like what you’ve posted so I wish I would’ve found this site before now! Good luck though with it! I always said to my friends–“If i wrote a book about this, everyone would read it” so I hope they do! :)

It’s not exactly hard to figure out who you are, Brian. Not many people write that well, or that candidly, or that many articles mentioning online dating for Thought Catalogue.
You should get a gay friend to start keeping a log of what happens on Grindr. Oh the stories. They could fill an ocean with desperate, insecure depravity.
Phil! You’re ruining the surprise for everyone!
