Comedian Jeannie Hogan explores the life of dating in I’m More Dating Than a Bowl of Overcooked Beans.

Comedian Jeannie Hogan has joined, then deleted, then re-joined just about every dating app.

Working in the tech world in her 20s, Hogan said she would do data analytics on these apps and actually got into comedy while running their tests.

This led to the publication of her comic research “How I used Tinder smart photos to prove once and for all that I’m more attractive than a plate of cold fried beans”, which originally appeared on mcsweeneys.net in 2017. she created five different Tinder accounts to see if she would be more attractive than a cold bowl of overcooked beans. She was glad to know that it was.

Now Hogan has combined her love of data and humor in her recently published book, I’m More Dating Than a Bowl of Overcooked Beans: And Other Romantic Observations. It’s a collection of short stories about modern romance interspersed with quizzes and speculation about how famous rom-com characters might live on dating apps.

“A lot of people say it’s very close to the mark, which, you know, is both a good thing and a bad thing,” Hogan said during a recent phone interview about the book. “I wanted to write something interesting, but not to provoke anyone. I think it’s a fun read and it’s short enough to be summery and people really enjoyed it.”

When Hogan originally pitched the idea for the book, she says she was single but in a relationship when she wrote it at the start of the pandemic. This novel was gone by the time she turned in her last copy. Writing from different perspectives on loneliness and relationships, Hogan said she drew on her real life experiences, such as when exploring topics like people who are on dating apps but aren’t actually single.

“I wrote this part [‘Creatively Justifying Not Mentioning Your Partner When Sandra Calls You Out’] in a fit of rage,” she said with a laugh. “I’ve been talking to this guy for months and he didn’t mention that he has a girlfriend. When I told him about it, he became defensive and said, “I didn’t know what you want to know.” He was so crazy. He couldn’t even just apologize.”

It also touches on TV shows that can be watched at different stages of a relationship.
