The quirky author came up with the title one day while having drinks with a friend. “We were trying to decipher the strange behavior of a guy I was dating but sometimes no one understands ‘man language’ so we came up with the G.F. list instead of trying to figure him out. We decided the G.F List was the best place for the guy I had been seeing and my friend’s ex-husband.”
Some common misinterpretations of G.F. have been; girlfriend, gluten free, good feelings, George Foreman and grand finale. According to author Sharyn Atkinson, none of these accurately depict the meaning of her title. As she explains “People do mental gymnastics all the time trying to figure out what G.F. means. I find it entertaining so I don’t like to give the answer away. All I will say is that it’s a list of men that I’m not interested in anymore.”
What began as a journal of a few bad dates quickly turned into something more when those who read Atkinson’s stories began to relate to her experiences. Soon morphing into “The G.F. List,” her journal incorporated all of the funny and sad events that she’s experienced as a single woman in Melbourne.
“The G.F. List: One Woman, With a List of Men, Answering the Question Singles Hate” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
