Would You Rather A Memoir of Growing Up and Coming OutA collection of poignant relatable essays from the author of Never Have I Ever about coming out in her late twenties entering into her first relationship and figuring out what it means to be an adultWhen Katie Heaney published her first book of essays chronicling her singledom up to age I sat on my review of this book for half a week because I was so emotional after I finished reading it Katie Heaney and I have a lot in common I've had a boyfriend but ten years ago Since then I've had little to no interest in dating despite feeling like I should Her talk with her therapist about how most people don't feel dread when it comes to dating was illuminating to say the least While I don't identify as a lesbian I didn't realise I was bisexual until late in my twenties so seeing someone else go through the same process someone who found it just as difficult as I did made me feel seen and less alone Perhaps contradictory I did leave the book feeling lonelier than I have in a long time Some of that is petty jealousy why did she get to realise she was gay and find love immediately? Why not me? some of it is just finding the path I have to walk hard and being tired This is perhaps personal than a book review should be Heaney spends a lot of time lamenting the way people related to her after her last memoir and just wanting to be herself with her own story It's hard not to project onto something like this and while I do sympathize with her it's only to a point Additionally I found her realisations about friendship disheartening She finds love and her friends matter less to her It's not that they don't matter they do of course it's just that being in a relationship means she has the most important person in her life and she needs her friends less As a single person I found this a bitter pill to swallow It's not that we single people don't know that already Or that I would have wanted her to lie and say everything was exactly the same as it always was with her friendships I have had enough friends enter into serious relationships to know that's just the way of life I guess it was just hard to read
