Jennifer Love Hewitt is writing a dating guide, The Day I Shot Cupid, that will be published in March 2010. According to the release, “she will reveal a surprisingly wicked sense of humor as she explores the new landscape of modern dating and offers up a wide range of practical tips, from text-flirting and IM-ing to what men and women really want, and how to start over after a breakup.”
Now, I know what you’re thinking: Do we really want love advice from a woman who’s dated Joey Lawrence, Carson Daly, John Mayer, and now her Ghost Whisperer costar Jamie Kennedy? Well, at least the fact that none of them are A-list keeps her relatable. (She has been known to work the merch table at Kennedy’s stand-up gigs — and has bedazzled the T-shirts he sells.) Maybe it’s all those tears she’s got me to shed on Friday nights (I’m incredibly vulnerable when I’m tired), but I think she just might be honest enough to get me to read this book if I’m sent one for free. “Throughout my career, there has always been so much written about my love life. Some true, but mostly made up,” she says in the release. “I thought it was time to share the real story of what I’ve learned navigating the dating waters. Hopefully, in addition to having a good laugh, women reading this will learn from some of my hard lessons.”
What would Hewitt have to share to get you to pick it up and take it to the café in Starbucks and then leave it on the table?
