Dating is dead -- so say Jessica Massa and Rebecca Wiegand. They say that dating doesn't lead to love like it reportedly did in the past -- instead, Massa and Wiegand say, women nowadays just have men informally orbiting them, and it's up to us female folk to take the relationships where we want them.
Their ideas stem from their stint as roommates in Brooklyn. The pals -- apparently BFFs since age 12 -- decided that they should reexamine America's romantic landscape instead of lamenting their love lives. So they launched WTF Is Up With MY Love Life?! a few years ago, a website aimed at "redefining romance and dating for the modern generation," Massa told us.
That project, which included countless countrywide interviews, morphed into a movie optioned by New Line Cinemas. That then turned into a book, The Gaggle , which came out yesterday, and stands poised to become the next big ladybook. (Massa authored the book, but both co-created the project.)
So what the hell is a gaggle, anyway? More »
