"I didn’t want to open the book because it felt too close to home. But I’m glad I did. Because in it I found empathy for the women who hear these things and the men who say them. And an explanation for why seemingly good matches fall apart or never come to fruition." 
 -The Washington Post 

 "Birch’s intimate style will appeal to women near the end of their dating tether." 
 -Toronto Star 

ABOUT

A research-based guide to navigating the newest dating phenomenon--"the love gap"--and a trailblazing action plan to help smart, confident, career-driven women find (and keep) their match.

For a rising generation young women, the sky is the limit. Women can be anything and have everything. They are outpacing their male peers in higher education and earning the corner office at work. Smart, driven, assertive women are succeeding at just about everything they do--except romance.

Why are so many men afraid to date smart women?

Modern men claim to want smarts, success, and independence in romantic partners. Or so says the data collected by scientists and dating websites. If that's the case, why are so many independent, successful women winning in life, but losing in love? Journalist Jenna Birch has finally named the perplexing reason: "the love gap"--or that confusing rift between who men say they want to date and who they actually commit to. Backed by extensive data, research, in-depth interviews with experts and real-life relationship stories, THE LOVE GAP is the first book to explore the most talked-about dating trend today. The guide also establishes a new framework for navigating modern relationships, and the tricky new gender dynamics that impact them. Women can, and should, have it all without settling.

PRAISE

 "Birch examines and dissects the societal structures that allow smart, successful women who want commitment and partnership to still be held whim to the desires of men."
Bustle 

"After reading Jenna Birch's The Love Gap: A Radical Plan to Win in Life and Love, I realized that it's so easy to tell yourself that 'he's not interested' because he left you on read and it's been a few days, or 'she's too busy' with her friends to notice me. If you feel something you haven't felt with anyone else, swallow your damn pride and give it a shot!"
—Buzzfeed
