A funny, honest and revealing account of a thirty-something woman who has it all - except a good man to spend the rest of her life with.

I designed my first wedding when I was seven... Pirate Pete was just a prop to give the scene validity. I really could have done without him so long as I got to one day wear a dress like Barbie's. But something shifts when a girl turns thirty and suddenly Pirate Pete becomes very much a part of the picture...

Jacinta Tynan appears to have it all: she's 32, gorgeous and has a fantastic job as a news presenter with Sky News Australia. There's just one thing missing: 'Pirate Pete'. So now she is 'auditioning husbands'. In Good Man Hunting, Jacinta chronicles her search for a man to live the rest of her life with, and her friends' search as well. Jacinta weaves a story that covers speed dating, 'premature declarators' (men who tell you they love you on the second date, then change their mind), getting over a breakup, chemistry, waxing (the Brazilian is in if you're on the market), married men, 'fishing off the company pier' (and the risks involved), older men, sex with an ex, the one-night stand, living alone and the well tested theory that 'Men are from Melbourne, Women are from Sydney' (which makes it hard if you're a Sydney girl). Her mother's advice to go out with any man, 'so long as he doesn't have two heads', doesn't help.

As Jacinta says... Dating is short shifts, trial and error, dumping and getting dumped... But I must do it - the dating thing - if I want the Ultimate Outcome. We all must. And so we enter the quagmire of finding a man at an age where, apparently, the odds just got a whole lot less... The thing is, for the first time in our lives we actually need men. Beyond love and intimacy, they are a vital ingredient for the family unit we suddenly crave.
