—Lisa Ling, award-winning journalist and bestselling author

I originally bought this book just to support Paul because I had been following his work for a very long time. I've read numerous relationship books that all seem to exploit women by telling us what's wrong with us and make men seem like flawless beings. As to say if something goes wrong, it must be your fault WOMAN. I very ignorantly thought this book would bring a similar message, but it is COMPLETELY different. It speaks to both MEN and WOMEN in a very realistic way that matches our real lives. It makes you take a deeper look both at and inside yourself, and it makes things apparent that your friends will almost never tell you. I recommend this book to everyone no matter your relationship status.

I purchased this book a few weeks in advance and I was super excited to receive it straight to my Kindle on the 11th. I quickly breezed through each of the chapters, laughing and learning with every sentence. Paul has a way of relating each of the topics to real, everyday experiences that he has witnessed.

Granted, I'm not the appropriate demographic for this book. He didn't write this book with me in mind, but I still could relate it to my life. I am currently single and have not found love yet, but I'm not down about it. This book helped me see that there are numerous ways for me to go out and find other people who are just like me.

You must focus on your appearance, and keep it in mind. Look through your closet and see what kind of clothes you have. Are they all the same, or do you have a variety of styles and colors. If all you have are jeans and T's, then maybe you need to mix in a suit, and maybe some khakis and polos. This will give you a variety of looks for different situations.

Paul also focuses on how you have to break out of your shell and go the extra mile to meet new people. You might live by the notion that true love will just happen to you someday, but how do you expect that to happen if you aren't out meeting new people? Do you expect Prince Charming to just fall out of the sky and land next to you on your couch? It's not going to happen. You need to be confident with how you look, and love yourself as a person; then go out and do something new and exciting to meet new people.

There is so much good advice within these pages. You would be insane not to purchase this book right away. Oh, you already found the love of your life and you don't need to read this? Well, Paul also touches on how you can maintain that lasting relationship. So that is no excuse, click "Buy Now" and enjoy reading it.

I saw this book advertised on another person's page and decided to check it out based on what I read from small excerpts. It is more than worth it's value. As a single person maneuvering through the very turbulent waters of dating in this century, this book serves as a life raft. It is easy to read, understand, follow and apply. Also, Paul Carrick Brunson is as real and touchable as his words make him seem. For those looking for love, in love, and regaining love, this book is certainly a jewel to have.

I was looking for a book to read and just one-clicked this dating guide for the fun of it. I have to say it was not the normal "try harder to find the one you love" jargon accompanied by some mediocre advice. On the contrary the author does a great job of painting the picture of dating as, well, actually a "real job". One has to approach dating like they would approach anything else in life - with tenacity and self conviction.

Some real good advice in this book.

FINALLY!!! A book written by a happily married black man who doesn't necessarily have prominent denomination's outlook and who makes sense from a psychological stand point! I LOVED the fact that he adds in stories from clients that he's worked with detailing their outlooks and how he asks them to seek professional help to deal with any issues that may prevent someone from dating responsibly. Much better than Patti Stanger ( who I don't believe is married yet)...

I absolutely loved this book. I read it in about 4 days! Once I picked up the book, I simply could not put it down. Paul gives great advice in this book for both men and women. This book is not gender-specific. It focuses on teaching everyone to build meaningful, loving, and trusting relationships. Paul's viewpoint is not biased. He's very honest. Some things will be tough to read and he will force you to look deep within yourself at your own flaws to see how they've affected your ability to build healthy relationships. Great job Paul! I can't wait for your next book! We want more!

Anyone dating or wanting to date should read this book. You will appreciate the well-rooted depth of Brunson's advice. He's thought through the dating endeavor thoroughly for us, and throughout this book, he pulls us in with ongoing requests to reflect on how his advice relates to our own unique lives and personalities. There are no arbitrary formulas in this book. As the title says, it's complicated. But by reading and engaging with this book, we can adopt a positive (and skillful) outlook on dating that makes it easier to protect ourselves, have fun, and possibly find the companionship we desire.
