What happens when you graduate high school (or college) and your friends scatter? Do you lose touch or keep in contact? Do you make new friends or hide out in your dorm/apartment until you run out of shows in your Netflix queue? Is it possible to keep friendships after college? To quote one of the secrets: Making and keeping friendships after college is harder than G.I. Joe’s abs. What about romance? Should you go on a date with that person? Do you need to break up? What constitutes a date anyway? To quote another of the secrets: A date is a date is a date is a…date. It’s not a marriage proposal. It’s not a death sentence. These twenty secrets, pulled from Paul Angone’s book: 101 Secrets for Your Twenties, will give you insights into the relationships in your twentysomething life. The secrets cover everything from friendship dynamics to romantic interests, from being friendless in a new city to being uncertain who/what/when/where/why you will marry. Moody Collective Portions are short pieces of content taken from our full-length books. Our goal is to introduce our readers to a complete idea in a brief, concise, and inexpensive format.

Where’s the future of work headed and what does having a successful career look like today? How do I make a choice when I don’t know what to choose? How do I stop networking and start “relationshipping”? Why do some people have great marriages while others have complete wrecks before they even make it to the highway? Am I seeing the other side of people’s Instagram photos (you know, the side they’re not exactly posting pictures of)? What are the Pivotal Plot Points of my story? Do I have anyone on my "Dream Team"? After his success with 101 Secrets for your Twenties and connecting with millions of twentysomethings around the world through speaking engagements and his blog AllGroanUp.com, Paul Angone captures the hilarious, freakishly-accurate assessment of life as a modern-day twentysomething (and thirtysomething) facing real Millennial problems, but now he’s digging even deeper.
