Dating Between the Lines is a book of illustrated pick-up lines and wise thoughts from everyday people on love and life. The illustrations will make you laugh, and the dating wisdom will lift your heart. We created this book to be a source of comic relief for folks (ourselves included!) when dating feels like a murky sea of confusion and self doubt. We want you to have a space to think deeply about this dating stuff, while keeping a sense of humor. We are so proud that this book is community created. Our pick-up lines are brainstormed by friends, and quotes are from interviews with people in our extended network. Many illustrations feature local businesses of Oakland, our home base.
