Greenwald's main point is that on a first date, like on a job interview, first impressions count. If you make a bad first impression, there may not be time for someone to see beneeth the surface, so it's really important to carefully consider what you reveal and how quickly you move. Her second point is that, many men (no, not all) are more likely to want to see you again if you maintain some intrigue - remember Dangerous Liaisons, one fo the sexiest period pieces ever? This doesn't mean being "fake" or playing games, but it also doesn't mean wearing your heart on your sleeve or coming in with a checklist of questions to get through before you finish your appetizer. Didn't your mother always tell you to listen more than you talk? The men who were interviewed for this book can tell the difference. For anyone who has been dating for a while, getting lots of first dates but very few second or third ones, read this book with an open mind and think about how it really is speaking to you. Remember, if you always do what you always did, you always get what you always got! This is one feminist who thinks I may have a thing or two to learn about how to put my ego aside and focus on my goal: meeting the man of my dreams this year!
But as the author of "Why You're Still Single: Things Your Friends Would Tell You If You Promised Not to Get Mad" and as a dating coach whose primary clients are smart, successful single women from 30-65, I can tell you that every single thing in Greenwald's book is a potential teaching tool. These are the same issues I hear from my amazing women clients day in and day out. Men don't respond to bossy women, gold-diggers, downers, desperation, high-maintenance, or women who are all about themselves - their jobs, their friends, their accomplishments. Yes, they want attractive, but they also want want intelligence, kindness, fun, and nurturing.
This isn't really news. You may think this only applies to other women that you know. It does not. In fact, the big statistical take-away I got from this book is that 78 percent of women surveyed believed that a man hadn't called her back for reasons beyond her control - "chemistry", "he's just not that into me", "he's intimidated by me". The truth is, 85% of men felt the exact opposite - that there were very specific things that women did which created a negative impression that men couldn't look past.Read more ›
I am happily involved in a very loving relationship with a man who takes me as I am as I am accepting of him. He's also cute, which adds to the excitement of being in this relationship. Yay me. F-you, stupid dating book. By the way, asking a guy out and wearing a fanny pack on the second date didn't have negative effects or impressions of me and here I am in a relationship.
To the members who posted on my review that I missed the point of this book: I did not. I read it, understood it for what it is and still stand by my opinion. If this book works for you, great. I just feel that I have read better and for free at the library. And if you haven't gotten to the point where you are in a long term relationship using the advice given by Rachel Greenwald, then try another book, "How to become a better person."
My original post:
When I started dating, I wanted to read more about how dating works. This book made me afraid of dating. I know I am a confident and loving person with good hygiene and social skills and this book made me feel very insecure about myself, for a week. (then i got over it and saw this book for what it really is: crap) Most of the comments about bad dates were from whiny dudes who took a few negatives in a date and totally blew them out of proportion in their heads, instead of learning about the kind of person their date is and finding things they like about them. Did these women go on dates with the Jerry Seinfelds and Larry Davids of the dating scene or what? Or is this a case of perfectionists looking for perfection? So here we go, with 'helpful' insight on dating from a matchmaker and various single men, emphasis on 'single'.Read more ›
