Ladies’ man Tom Haverford would approve of Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari’s latest project, a book investigating the modern, tech-obsessed dating scene. To the actor and comedian, today’s singles face a new world of relationship humor and shame.

“You know when you text someone you’re romantically interested in and you don’t hear anything back and then you see them post a photo of a pizza on Instagram? That’s exactly what I want this book to deal with,” Ansari said in a press release. “These are strange conundrums that no generation has ever faced before and it’s a fascinating jumping off point for what I hope will be a very interesting book about modern courtship.”

With this first book, Ansari will offer his take on single life, as well as talk to experts and conduct relationship experiments of his own. Ansari inked the deal with The Penguin Press to publish his still untitled book, which is tentatively set for release in September 2015.
