A fabulous tale of dating in your 30s. The author explores the highs and lows of trying to find a mate at a time of life when meeting the love of your life through conventional routes no longer appears possible. The book includes a combination of the author's dating experiences (and a number of laugh out loud moments!) plus an exploration of the reality of being single in your late 30s. This book is honest, thought provoking and fantastically funny! Read it whether you are a man or a woman and irrespective of your romantic status.

This book is perfect for a summer read, it's a really accurate observation of the trials and tribulations of dating and being single in your 30s but doesn't come across as bitter, man-hating or resentful of couples. I really found myself liking the author with her honesty, relentless optimism and resourceful nature. Plenty of laugh out loud moments and some quite painful ones too, I couldn't put it down and so wanted her to find a husband (will not give that bit away though!) You'll love it.

Great summer read, now that summer is finally here! Feels like the author must have been
witness to my own life's travails. Really entertaining but also brings up an important hot-topic for all girls over a certain age - having a great career delays the whole marriage/baby thing. A good read for single and married girls - and maybe even their very lucky husbands.

I was recommendeded this book by a friend and really, really enjoyed it. It's funny, entertaining, very readable and also very honest about the highs and lows of dating. I think this book would be perfect to take away on holiday and isn't just for single people - I bet lots of people in relationships will read it to find out how life is on the other side!

Format: Paperback
This manages to be simultaneously funny and touching - and best of all, it's a beautifully-written and easy read. Agree with a previous reviewer, definitely not just for single women! The dilemmas and insecurities are pretty universal, and plenty for chaps to ponder from this bird's-eye (sorry...) view of the dating landscape.

I don't often find the time to submit reviews on Amazon, but had to write a few words about this fabulous book. I've read a number of titles in this genre (i.e. people writing about their experience of the London dating scene), but First Catch Your Husband is undoubtedly the best of them. It's well-written, accessible, and a real page-turner from first page to last, but what really elevates it above the competition for me is how insightful and knowing it is. From someone who has been in many of the same situations the author has, I can promise you that Sarah Bridge really knows what she's talking about. If you've got any interest in big city dating and relating, read this book - you won't be disappointed.

From the moment I started reading this book I knew I was going to love it in a bitter sweet kinda way. I was laughing out loud as I think I too might have dated a couple of the guys mentioned (if not exactly him then definitely the type!).
I too have at times felt if only I could get in the right taxi queue or on the right train then meeting Mr Right might well have happened by chance.
Love, love, love it made me laugh, made me cry. Am still out there looking but at least I have a bit more of laugh whilst looking as realise someone else has done it all before me.

I had a date with Sarah Bridge during her search-for-a-husband-cum-research-for-her-book. She didn't even reply when I thanked her for a lovely evening. Even more humiliatingly, I wasn't fascinating or vile enough to warrant a mention in this book, which charts her late-thirties quest for a man to supply gametes for her uterus and farts for her sofa during major sporting events for the next forty years.

I mean, I earn over twice the average salary in London and drive a BMW – both of which I'm sure I mentioned on our date – so what's not to like? So I bought this book in a natural spirit of spite and schadenfreude, hoping her journey ended in misery, degradation and defeat. Oh, and to find out a bit more about Sarah herself, since I was too busy delighting her with stories about myself when we met. She might have said something about herself, but I wasn't really listening. That's how it works.

You've got to admire her stamina as she charts her demented journey through internet dating, speed-dating, holiday romances and single-themed evenings, weekends and holidays. On the way she meets men who vary from the gorgeous to the repulsive, while her quest becomes obsessive to the point of desperation.

Sarah's (yes, we're on first-name terms; do keep up) book is gently humorous, exasperating and perhaps a bit long, but it's still a fascinating insight into the infuriating world of modern partner-hunting (not 'dating' – that's an American thing; we agree on that). Some parts, such as her trip to Greece, are poignant, engaging and funny. Others, such as her womyn's empowerment weekend, where women are supposed to have their confidence strengthened by talking about their yonis and being institutionalised as eternal victims of the patriarchy, are frankly terrifying.
