Editorial Reviews

Review

"MENu Dating is great and inspiring--it's refreshing to have a dating book that concentrates on what women should do for themselves as much as what they should do for men." - Joanna Goddard, Glamour

"MENu Dating is a must-read for singles. It’s a wonderful reminder that the road to happily ever after can be an adventure -- especially when you’re willing to step outside of your comfort zone and do some taste testing along the way." - Melissa Braverman, Examiner

"For those of you who are looking for a relationship (guys, this means you, too), I think this is a great idea! Look at life—and dating—as one big buffet," Amy Spencer, Author of Meeting your Half Orange

I'm a shy girl, but after reading this book I felt motivated to get off my butt and get out there and not wait around for prince charming to show up at my door. I'm actually excited to get out there and try a new strategy and outlook on dating! You never know... :)

Great book for encouraging a healthy and open-minded viewpoint on dating. Coopersmith offers actionable suggestions and shares great anecdotes. I'm going out tomorrow to say hi to at least two random men!

I think this book is not only great for the 20-something year old woman exploring to find her soul mate but it's also GREAT for people that have been in long term relationships and missed out on their twenties dating... it gives you the guidelines of how to get out there and navigate in the very competitive dating world! The new Courtney Cox show, Cougartown, has been addressing what i am referring to above. She is 40. Divorced. With a teen son. And she is playing the field and having fun now that she is single again! However, getting back in the game is not easy when you have not played for a long time... that's why this book is a fun read and it gives us "cougars" ideas on how to get back on the field and have FUN while "tasting" all the MEN in the Menu! ;-)

Being a single 25 year old girl in the city, I would say this book gives a very accurate description on what it's like to date. Tristan not only delivers wonderful advice, but she does it in such a humorous way, that you don't want to put the book down. It allows you to embrace your feminine side -- if you want to jump on a guy, go for it and have no regrets! Unlike other dating books, it gives a modern perspective on "the rules" (a girl can and should call a guy!). I am buying this book for all of my single friends!

As a 30 yr old guy, I flipped through the book and thought it was rather mature, honest, and no-nonsense discussion of the "outdated" tactic of dating. I gave it to a 28 yr old girl friend (not a girlfriend) of mine that was having some issues with and doubts about the men in her life. She was a serial-dater (e.g. she went from one bad relationship to another) but she never "dated" to determine compatibility. She never sampled the buffet, she just took a full plate of the first thing that came along. She read it and made a concerted effort to employ the strategy suggested and it restored her faith and renewed her spirit.

Another friend of mine gave it to a girl friend of hers who was very shy and inexperienced with dating (at the age of 33! ..gasp!). This girl really lived the "menu dating" technique for almost a year; when she does something she goes all in! The result was a lot of learning on her part and a lot of fun for us to hear her stories of great, good, bad, and awful dates.

There is a rather honest and poignant, but somewhat liberal, view of sex and sexuality. I have no problem with what is discussed, but some readers who are not sexually active or perhaps are sexually repressed for whatever reason (or perhaps are a little too young for it) may be put off by this. Quite intelligently, it is all in one chapter and can be either cut out or stapled shut until said reader is "ready" to dive into this topic.
