About the Author

Jen Kim blends real-life confession, pop culture, and psychology in, at times, TMI fashion into one delicious and good-for-you life lesson smoothie on her Psychology Today blog: Valley Girl With a Brain. Kim's blog explores everything from the most effective ways to get over a breakup (all backed by research), and the art of flirting (without actually seeming like you're flirting), to turning thirty (it can suck), and the perils of being too nice (it's not so nice). The author resides in San Francisco, California.


"If you've ever wondered if all those Disney movies you watched as a kid really screwed up your adult life, this one is for you. Described by the author as "a self-help book for people who hate self-help books" Jen Kim's Love And . . . is a hilarious and eye-opening journey through your muddled past relationships as well as Kim's own, as she looks at the science and psychology behind why we love (or, you know, don't) in the ways that we do. Just in time for Valentine's Day." --Bustle

"If a dating self-help book is more your V-day style, we can't recommend Jen Kim's Love And... Bad Boys, the "One" and Other Fun Ways to Sabotage Your Relationship enough. Instead of telling you what you should be doing differently in your dating life, Kim seeks to answer why things happen the way they do. She explains why a lot of the dating mistakes we make are actually tied to our biology. Huh. Yes, it's a self-help book, but no, it doesn't want to change you. It wants to inform and empower you."

"A funny, thoughtful examination into why relationships can be so challenging, and science-informed tips for putting yourself back together. A rare combination in a book!" --Scott Barry Kaufman, PhD in cognitive psychology, author of Wired to Create

"I love this book. It is sassy, fun, and full of fun facts in the biology and psychology of love and mating. A must read for those still dating . . . and beyond." --Louann Brizendine M.D., author of The Female Brain and The Male Brain
