Karina Smirnoff has been one of the favorites among the Dancing with the Stars professionals for a long time.

We have seen Karina Smirnoff laugh, cry, and get fired up.

After watching someone on TV for that long you kind of feel like you know them.

Now, fans of Karina Smirnoff can cheer up. Even though she's leaving the show, we can now read about her dating disasters.

Karina Smirnoff has written a book full of them. The book also includes cautionary tales and hilarious mishaps from her friends.

We’re Just Not That Into You: Dating Disasters From the Trenches is co-written with her manager, Lindsay Rielly.

The book sounds so great, because we can all relate, right?

Karina Smirnoff said of the book's premise, “Well, we all go on dates, right? We all go on dates whether you're in a relationship, whether you are looking for Mr. Right. And a lot of times when you're in the moment and something happens, you kind of sit back and go, like, ‘How did I get myself into it?’”

The book includes stories from colleague Cheryl Burke, as well as TV personality and former contestant on Dancing with the Stars, Maria Menounos.

Karina Smirnoff included some surprising features in the book, also.

Many of you have been asking if I will be back for season 20 of DWTS and I wanted all of my incredible family to hear it directly from me. After a lot of thought and prayer, I've decided to focus my energies on some other exciting endeavors including adding author to my resume. I have absolutely loved dancing for all of you for all these years and feel blessed to have been given a platform to put my passion for dance, choreography and creativity on display. DWTS has been a huge part of my life for the last 10 years and i will always have a special place in my heart for it. I am thrilled that now you will be seeing more of me in new arenas in the days and weeks to come. My first book We're Just Not That Into You - Dating Disasters From the Trenches was released today and I look forward to hearing from you as you read it! I love all of you so very much and couldn't feel more grateful for your support in all that I do! #werejustnotthatintoyou

For instance, she says the book will have advice for modern dating women, like, be sure to listen to your instincts.

Karina Smirnoff explained, “A lot of times women go against their intuition. Like, we feel something. We see the red flags. But we are always so hopeful, you know, that we can be the ones.”

So true.

There will also be a list of the worst and most cringe-worthy pickup lines heard by the authors and contributors.

Like these beauties shared by Karina Smirnoff, '“Can I get a picture of you? Because I want to show it to Santa and tell him what I want for Christmas”; "Do you know what my T-shirt is made of? Of boyfriend material,” and "Do you live in a cornfield? Because I am stalking you."'

Excuse me while I shudder.

Karina Smirnoff just may have a bestseller on her hands! What do you think?
