The Undateable (Librarians in Love, #1) by Sarah TitleOne San Francisco librarian would rather check out a good romance than dare to experience it herself. Luckily, her own next chapter is full of surprises…
Melissa “Bernie” Bernard isn’t familiar with fame. After all, she works at a college library with hardly any visitors. But when a video of a marriage proposal in her stacks goes viral, it’s not the bride and groom who capture the Internet’s attention. It’s Bernie—caught rolling her eyes. Now, just as she’s ready to go into hiding and permanently bury her nose in a book, a handsome reporter appears with a proposal of his own…
If Colin Rodriguez doesn’t do something big to attract new readers, his boss will hire someone else to dole out dating advice. Determined to prove he’s an expert at romance—despite his own pitiful track record—he pitches a story: He will find dates for the undateable. Specifically, for the now-infamous, love?hating librarian at Richmond College.
Even though Bernie doesn’t believe in happily-ever-afters, she’s not one to resist a good challenge. Yet with one disastrous date after another, she’s ready to give up. Until Colin proves he’ll do anything to find her the perfect match—even if it means putting himself up for the role…
Meet the Undateables: Tyler and Caylin
Tom went on a blind date through Time Out magazine's The Undateables column and has a lot to say about it. Then he sits down with Will Gleason, the matchmaker behind the column, to debrief and find out how this all works, anyway. Meanwhile, Tucker catches up with Tom's blind date, Molly, to find out what it's like to date Tom. Huge thank yous go out to Will Gleason for playing ball and letting us record the experience, and especially to Molly for putting up with us far longer than she signed up for with The Undateables. Small shout out to Time Out's photographer as well for putting up with Tom's shit. If you like what you hear, please leave a five-star review on iTunes; it really does make a difference!
We take two undateable New Yorkers and put our matchmaking skills to the test.

Nerd is the new cool and nothing says nerdtastic like a good comic book. Next, head to double-tiered comedy venue The Creek and the Cave , which welcomes stand-ups including occasional surprise bigwigs like Jerry Seinfeld , improv troupes and variety shows every night of the week, often for nada. This overrated date night comes in handy, especially when the cost is dirt cheap. And since the movie is so affordable, you can schmooze your date by splurging on some gourmet popcorn from the concession stand. Hell, you and your date can get a buzz and some grub for 11 or 12 bucks! Free dance parties go down most Saturday nights, featuring DJs spinning old-school hip-hop crowd pleasers and heavy-hitters at midnight. Arrive early in the evening, as they tend to sell out.
Everyone knows it can be tough to be single in New York. We pair them up and send them out to have we hope a fun, romantic night on the town. Afterward, we find out what went well on the date, and what went horribly, horribly wrong. Do you want to get set up on a free blind date? Email undateable timeout.
