Publisher's Summary

Everyone tells stories on dates. Sometimes we tell these stories to make people laugh. Sometimes we tell them to make people think. Sometimes we tell them so we can increase the chances we'll see the other person naked.
Paul Shirley's stories are about an adulthood spent all over the world: living in Spain, playing in the NBA, and having his heart (and spleen) broken. But they're also stories about growing up in small-town Kansas: triumphant spelling bees, catastrophic middle school dances, and a Sex Ed. class taught by his mother.
They're funny stories. They're vulnerable stories. Most of all, they're universal stories, just as the stories we tell on dates should be.

Fascinating and heartwarming

Paul's vulnerability and unique path in life as a pro athlete relating to women was told with refreshing honesty and held an enjoyable line between lighthearted and deep. The end result is a charming, well written memoir.

Stories I Tell on Dates on Audible

Loved it! The book's inter-twined, candid stories were delightfully entertaining! Especially for this fellow Iowa Stater.
