How to Not Die Alone: The Surprising Science That Will Help You Find Love
Great relationships don’t just appear in our lives—they’re the culmination of a series of decisions, including when to get out there, whom to date, how to end it with the wrong person, when to commit to the right one, and everything in between. But too often, we don’t understand why we’re making certain decisions, which can lead us to make bad choices in our search for a lasting partner.
Here to help us navigate our own decision-making is renowned expert Logan Ury, a behavioral scientist turned dating coach and Director of Relationship Science at the dating app Hinge, where she leads a research team dedicated to helping people find love. Ms. Ury’s fresh, data-driven approach to modern dating applies behavioral science to love, helping readers find and build relationships in an intentional way. She reveals the hidden forces that fuel faulty decision-making and prevent people from finding love. Her book is a guide to modern dating, designed to help the reader overcome their bad habits and find a long-term partner.
Ms. Ury’s debut book, How to Not Die Alone: The Surprising Science That Will Help You Find Love, blends behavioral science research with practical exercises—allowing us to recognize our own biases and bad habits, avoid common dating pitfalls, and restructure ingrained thought patterns to find lasting love. Each chapter focuses on a different decision along the dating journey, from “Am I ready to date?” to “Should we get married?” and will help people who are looking for love, as well as those who have found it and want to make it last.
Ms. Ury studied psychology at Harvard University, then she ran Google’s behavioral science team—The Irrational Lab—and created the popular interview series “Talks at Google: Modern Romance.” She is a 2018 TED Resident.
Ms. Ury will be interviewed by Eli Finkel, Ph.D. (FAN ’17), author of the bestselling book The All-Or-Nothing Marriage. Prof. Finkel is a professor at Northwestern University, where he has appointments in the psychology department and the Kellogg School of Management.
This event suitable for youth 12+.
