Overview Snakkes til uka
"We´ll talk next week" he said. And went silent.

When Ellen Sofie Lauritzen reluctantly decides to give the dating-app Tinder a chance, a brand new world opens. A world where you can always swipe your way to your next date, and where the access to new and interesting people is never ending.

But she soon finds out that the Tinder-life also has a dark side. The alternatives are so many, and the next date always seems more alluring than the one you are on. And dumping someone never seems to create any consequences. Not for her, her friends or the men they meet. Lauritzen gives us a humoristic and honest look at a young woman´s year as an app-dater. She tells stories - her own and those of others - about anything from fateful profile pictures and catastrophic choices of pick-up-lines, to double gaming, harassment, date-rape-drugs and deceit. And some stories about actually finding real love.

"We´ll talk next week" is a friend for those who lie awake at night swiping, and a liberatingly recognizable book for those who have tried to find the right one.
