“This is the new bible of modern dating. Ginny is hilarious, relatable, and she offers the perfect ratio of tough love to coddling for anyone dealing with the cesspool of modern dating. This book is such a helpful, easy-to-understand guide to the world of dating that it’s almost enough to make me wish I was single again. ALMOST enough. I said “almost,” right?” -Dana Schwartz
“This book reads like a bit with a close friend-hilarious, goofy, and cathartic. Dating can be such a big, ambiguous, and at times heartbreaking mess, but I’m More Dateable takes those confusing and tragic elements and turns them into delightful stories and jokes.” -Karen Chee
“Ginny Hogan has done the nearly impossible: she’s found a fresh, original way to talk about dating. Riotously funny just like its author. Also, I can’t date you if you haven’t read this, so.” -Hannah Einbinder
"I’ve been a fan of Ginny’s Twitter for ages, so when I heard she was writing a book, I just about wet myself. In this book, she makes swiping right, getting ghosted, and being on the hunt for love a little less of a nightmare because at least we got this hilarious book out of it. I would say this is my new bible, but it’s not really, in that I wouldn’t tear pages out of this book to roll joints with." -Whitney Cummings
"Ginny Hogan’s book, I’m More Datable than a Plate of Refried Beans, captures today’s dating world perfectly. We now have a zillion ways of connecting, but we're getting further apart, and love seems to be even more elusive. Ginny turns a sharp eye on all of it and is hilarious, too.”-Andy Richter
"I've never read a dating book like this before. Ginny's honesty, humor, and creativity bring an amazing perspective to the chaos of modern dating."-Hannah Berner
“Ginny Hogan’s sardonic and winning I’m More Datable than a Plate of Refried Beans aims to skewer 21st century dating but ends up plumbing deeper depths. Besides actually analyzing whether the titular assertion is true (spoiler alert: it is) she mercilessly targets hookups, texting, dating apps, and every awkward permutation of sex. And by absolutely nailing the absurdity of it all in a howlingly funny fashion, she eventually gives the reader an oddly affecting admiration for carrying on in spite of it all.”-Jon Cryer

"A series of self-deprecating, fatalistic essays and deceptively bouncy visual pieces designed for quick, easy consumption and relatable entertainment, not unlike little dates, only way more fulfilling and sillier."
