now. Review Eric Schaeffer, enfant terrible of the New York dating scene, has written a deeply funny of his romantic and sexual quest. His frank revelations are a surprisingly addictive guilty pleasure.
While various gossip Web sites responded with appalled prudishness to Schaeffer's blog, any man who has lived and dated in Manhattan will relate, however uncomfortably, to Schaeffer's deeply earnest and ever hopeful quest to find a woman. Eric Schaeffer's writing is an unusual combination: weird, hilarious and compelling all at the same time.

More than lives up to its reputation as a stunningly un-self-aware autobiography of a selfish, needy, misogynist man-child.
I wanted to read this after watching his movies. Cool that he was on a popular dating site. His movies are pretty interesting but book was just okay.
Ok, I admit it, I love Eric Schaeffer's movies. I am a total sucker for FALL. Wish I could say the same for this book.
While the writing is witty, I think that it was a little run on and smacked of narcissism. I devoured the first s or so and then just couldn't swallow the rest. I always wondered what made him tick, but I think there was a little too much information shared. Not sure if any potential wife would really want to know all the dirty little secrets of his past. Of course, honesty is the best policy, but what's the point? Good luck, Eric, in finding a wife.Sanem \u0026 Can - \
You're going to need it after this book. I ordered it as soon as I could get my hands on it. Any interruptions while reading it received a cold hard stare. I've been following Eric's movie career for some time now and if you love his films like I do, you will love his book as well.
Schaeffer invites you into his intricate mind and makes you feel like your hanging out with him in his living room, on his couch, wearing comfortable sweats and munching on organic brownies. He is refreshing in his honesty and is not afraid to be raw and naked in speaking about his life.
He allowes you to laugh with him and cry with him. It is the first time I've read something that made me feel truly connected with the author. I'm a forty-something never-married man that bought this book solely because of the title. However, I didn't start reading it until after the recent kick-off episode of the companion TV series' second season on Showtime.
I enjoyed watching the show's first go-around last year, so I figured it was time to burrow into "I Can't Believe I'm Still Single" for deeper insight into Eric Schaeffer's colorful psyche. After finishing his tale, I must say that the term "wild and crazy guy" doesn't begin to scratch the surface.
We first encounter the hapless author in his early forties as he meets April, a woman that his gut later tells him to flee from. Even so, he gamely tries to make the relationship work, and we follow his wordy efforts throughout the book as we get some back story. Schaeffer's early years are defined by addictions to food, sensuality, drugs, and alcohol. Romantic attachments crash and burn throughout his twenties and thirties as he sobers up, discovers yoga, drives a cab, churns out screenplays, and gets some acting gigs.
He finally achieves a bit of show business success, but true love constantly eludes him. Despite some slow spots and disturbing anecdotes, I enjoyed the book as a whole and found myself rooting for the author due to his TMI level of honesty and dogged attempts to pursue his dual dreams of filmmaking and finding a soul mate. However, he's hampered personally and professionally by some serious relational issues and personality foibles. The manic OCD energy he displays on his TV show arcs through the s like a shock treatment session.
His admitted battles with sensory excess and naked insecurities cripple all attempts at lasting intimacy, most tragically when he manages to meet a woman who might actually be right for him. Indeed, even a casual reader will be able to say with conviction, "I can believe that Eric Schaeffer is single.
Schaeffer reminds me of an eccentric, fiercely extroverted woman I hung out with in Spain who would boldly talk to everyone in earshot, and after a couple of sentences people would either laugh or run away. I found myself more in the former category, despite having a hard time identifying with his overabundance of personality and lurid proclivities. I guess I can't help but root for the underdog. In the end, all I can do is send a "Namaste" in his direction and wonder if there is any chance of marriage for him as he nears fifty. Stranger things have happened. Recently a friend of mine described his never-married quirky brother who happens to be around Mr.
Schaeffer's age to a woman. Her diagnosis: "Well, he just needs a girl that is quirky like him and I'm sure there is one out there for him. That, I can relate to. This book fell off my shelf and onto my shoulder and I took it as a personal insult, so maybe this book deserves another star, but it's pretty vacant from beginning to end, and not in a good way. He, Eric, is in love with himself, sort of; he also hates himself and furthermore, he's ambivalent about all of his feelings. The book flutters between these three states of feeling, constantly refracted like one of those mirrored music boxes my mother kept on her bureau when I was a sexually confused child myself.
With the prompt of a single pink fingernail my mother would set the music box to whirling around on its mechanical base, to the romantic strains of Beethoven's "Fur Elise," and I would be transported to another world, but if I was Eric Schaeffer, he would be thinking of some crass way to get my mother to sodomize him with an eight inch strap-on.
Some of his stories about indie filmmaking amuse, and one comes away from his book with great admiration for his mentor, John Sayles, but mostly one feels sorry for Sarah Jessica Parker, Molly Ringwald, and the dozens of lesser known women who have had to put up with his continual need for strap-on gratification. It can't be pleasant feeling this itch and knowing that you are going to be refused 99 times out ofbut if I had wanted an encyclopedia on the subject, I would have bought one, Single and sane m this is wretched plain and fancy, I don't know any other way to say it.
Pity for he once had a promising career, then he must have annoyed the money people as well as his audiences. This book portrays a broken psychopathic misogynist who will end up alone and childless. He is in his 50's and pretends he can still date women in their 20's. Since no woman in her right mind would settle for him he lives out his fantasies in his trite, self serving, VERY badly produced movies where actress' are paid to pretend to love him.
