From the Back Cover
Love is hard. But it doesn't have to be.
Leading relationship expert and rising media personality Matthew Hussey provides what every woman needs to know to find lasting love. Offering invaluable insight into the male psyche, he will change the way you approach men and dating and give you the tools you need to find the man you deserve. Hussey answers every single woman's three most burning questions:
- Where do I go to meet good men?
- Why didn't he call?
- How do I get him to commit?
In Get the Guy, you will learn specific strategies for getting out there and meeting the best single guys. You will also learn why the guy you like has gone cold and the secrets to reigniting a spark with him. And you'll discover why so many guys seem to be afraid of long-term commitment and the three simple steps you can take that will change his mind.
Hussey also reveals why playing hard to get is a lose-lose game. A man doesn't want to endlessly chase a woman who is impossible to attain; he wants to win over a woman who is “high value." You'll find out how to create nonnegotiable standards for the way you want to be treated—and utilize a foolproof method for determining if a man can live up to them.
Leveraging what he learned from coaching thousands of men to find personal and professional success, Hussey will teach you how to meet more men, how to choose one who is worth your time, and finally, how to keep him enthralled forever. His insightfulness, irreverence, and warmth make the journey to love playful and fun, and his advice ensures success in both romance and life.

Matthew's rise to success as a motivational speaker has been meteoric. From humble beginnings working as a life coach with individual clients in London's coffee shops and cafes, Hussey now runs programs across the globe, helping thousands of men and women reach their true performance potential.
In packed conference rooms across the United States and United Kingdom, or on week-long retreats in luxury locations in Europe and America, Matthew and the team have created tailor-made programs designed to help clients transform their lives.

Matthew has rooted his business in private coaching work, which has often focused on confidence issues that impacted relationships. As a result, he began to gain recognition helping men with their love lives. For two years this became a major focus of his work, and he conducted several hundred seminars for large groups of men on this subject, as well as coaching many more men on a one-to-one basis.
As his reputation grew, Hussey found himself approached by increasing numbers of women, eager to hear what he had learned about the male perspective on love and romance. In 2008 Hussey formed GetTheGuy, focusing exclusively on relationships and aimed solely at women. The brand established Hussey as one of the leading worldwide experts in the field of human attraction.

None of this is earth-shattering, mind-blowing secrets that will give you some epiphany on love & life. Instead, it reads like common sense, the kind many of us missed the memo on, so that it's not so "common" after all.
This book doesn't insult your intelligence, berate you for being a woman, tell you that you have to compromise your values, or leave with some sick feeling that manipulation of men & dishonesty with your own feelings/needs is the "secret".
The explanations of male thinking is also not "boys will be boys" trash that insists sexist and misogynistic behaviors are simply "biological" for men & have to be tolerated by women.Read more ›
Hussey has a great insight into the male dating mind, so he is able to provide women with great advice that resonates with both women and men. Moreover, he treats women with respect and tells us to treat ourselves with self-respect, not to lose our marbles and lower our standards for any man who is not worth of us. The concept of high-value woman is empowering and so very true. Hussey doesn't tell you to play games or fake who you are, but to be true to yourself, have standards, behave like a lady, have a life of your own, and be fun and playful.
The book contains some free bonus links to some of his videos, which are really useful. I am not into any of programs or anything, though, so you don't have to buy anything.
The main down of the book comes when Hussey goes back to his former pick up artist and comes with "lines" to repeat or say. We are not what we say, but how we behave and who we are.
Still, a very good dating book.
Basically, his book said that in order to get a guy you need to be more extroverted. You need to put yourself in situations where you can meet a greater number of men. You need to strike up conversations with folks. You need to carry yourself in a way that makes you catch. Gosh, that is a formula for meeting men that I could never have conceived of if left to my own devices.
The annoying part is he would say you need to go to more parties and gatherings, etc. to be exposed to more options. No kidding. Tell me something I don't know, like maybe some tips about how to feel comfortable going into situations like that. He says go to more parties as if that is directive that is as simple as saying wear heels such that everyone can do it. Obviously, if it was that easy to put yourself in those positions you would already be doing it.
Then he'll talk about being able to keep good conversation. Really? Do you think a good conversationalist is hiding her abilities and now that you say "be more conversational" that all of sudden she'll think "oh, that's how I attract a man? I need to converse more? Gee, I had no idea. Let me start talking."
The fact is if you need to have someone tell you to be more conversational then you have a problem being conversational in the first place and you need help with that. If you are not going out on the town all the time and exposing yourself to a larger pool of fish then obviously you have a problem doing that and need advice on how to do it. He doesn't give any advice.Read more ›
