dating

Women often say, "I can't find a good man," or "There are no good guys out there." Well, I beg to differ. There are "good" single guys everywhere, and like you, they're looking for someone. Many of them are in situations or stages of their own lives that are preventing them from realizing their full potential, and they just haven't met the right woman, the one who will inspire them to be all they can be. The key is changing how you look at life and opening your mind to the possibility of meeting someone you would least expect, in a place where you would least expect it. Once you connect with a man who interests you, the goal is to make plans to see him again with the intention of dating -- or, at the very least, to speak again soon. This requires exchanging contact information and being proactive. In this day and age, women, like men, must seize the moment and make their desires known. Dating is the discovery stage of relationship-building. It's the time when you are supposed to learn more about him, but also -- and equally important -- it's when he can learn about you so you can both determine if there is a connection. Love requires an alternating current. To harness and generate love, the connection must flow both ways. A direct current or a one-way connection is considered lust, not love.

The book is written to be easy to read and follow with lots of comical inserts.

This book was just a bunch of ramblings of common sense things that everyone already knows.

This is a book where I believe that Steve and JoAnn really hit the nail on the head.

I finished this book in about 2 1/2 hours (rented it from my local library) and I am very happy with the results. I've read other dating books ("He's Just Not That Into You", "Don't Be That Girl", and "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man") and while they're good, there have been things in those books that I don't agree with. This is a book where I believe that Steve and JoAnn really hit the nail on the head. I think we are so consumed with hanging onto dates that don't give us females the time of day, and also over-texting and giving out too much information on a first date. This book really takes it back to the way dating should really be. My favorite line was about not being picky, but knowing what you want subjectively. Also, I love how they talk about not devaluing yourself. It's definitely a confidence booster for those females who wonder what they're doing wrong. It's hard not to read this book and go, "Oh, i've done that...oops." and learn from your mistakes. Anyway, this is a great book and I will definitely reccommend it to all of my friends.

I got this book very quickly after ordering. It was in perfect condition. The book is alot of common sense information but I have just gotten out of a 17 year relationship and needed a little boost. The book is written to be easy to read and follow with lots of comical inserts. I loved the show and I love the book. It was a great "dating refresher" for someone who has been out of the game for so long. Really helped me recognize and realize some annoying things I do and habits that I have (although I hate to admit it...lol)

Waste of money! This book was just a bunch of ramblings of common sense things that everyone already knows. Absolutely does not teach you anything.

I have never watched the TV show, so I did not know what to expect. The book is just OK, but easy and enjoyable to read. It has both the male and female perspective, and that is always great. It is well written, simply organised, and has good advice. However, it is nothing new. Something you have already heard/read gazillion times if you have ever used any dating and relationship book. What I call granny's recipe, a bit revamped, which is great for modern generation-Y girls who have lost all that knowledge we used to get. But nothing really new or wow.

I really enjoy watching the show and was excited to read the book. The book was not what I was expecting. It's like an easy read book and didnt give me much information. On the show, Steve sometimes points out his "rules" but the book didn't go over his rules, which I was hoping it would have.

A VERY Quick read. Basically, it it a reminder to be considerate, have reasonable expectations- and don't be such a demanding, over expecting, inconsiderate,unapprecative female. There were no "secrets" revealed.
Just don't be psycho!

I love the show, but didn't care for the book. Pretty much if you don't know what's in this book, you're a moron lol. Come on, the rule "Dont be Weird"? Do people need to be told this?
It's also a small, short, book.

If I would have purchased this book for a penny, I would think of it as a valued purchase. The book is extrememly brief, lacked detailed examples,and was nothing the show could not tell you. I completed reading it in a day because it is so short. The lessons or rules are about a paragraph long. To fully grasp the concept is unobtainable from reading this book. Stick to the show or hire him full time!
