Loved it! Two days and already a drastic improvement!!!!
on September 9, 2011
Okay, so first - I recently experience a divorce. Getting back into the dating world seemed quite daunting, but I dove in anyway. No guts, so glory, right? Problem is, I didn't know how to swim!!! The result? I quickly started drowning into terrible 'relationship' after terrible 'relationship.'
I am an intelligent, beautiful young woman with a stable career that I love. I am confident and independent. I thought that was enough to make guys come flocking! And they did... till about a week into it. I thought that if they liked me and I liked them, that total bare-bones honesty was fine!!! (I was also guilty of textaholic behavior. Ooops!)
I never understood why they would get into a relationship with me, adore me... why everything would seem perfect and then they'd abruptly pull away and disappear. I didn't understand why, with all my other qualities, I was sometimes perceived as a certain type of conquest... and not the sort that ends in a relationship. Apparently, I was misinterpreted as clingy, needy, weak and lacking self-respect. BUT I HAD NO IDEA WHY!!!
That's where TEXTAPPEAL came in. I read it all in one sitting. It's conversational and funny and soooo unbelievably informative. It's not just a book of 'do this and do that' but really explains why... in a common sense way, humorous way! It was light bulb after light bulb going off while I devoured the book.
I discovered answers to questions I didn't even know I needed to ask.
Within two days, I finally had the skill-sets to cut off a really bad long-distance relationship. I also got the courage to set strict boundaries with a guy who continually went past my comfort zone concerning 'inappropriate' texts. And without even intending to, just by following some of the things outlined in the book, I even grabbed the attention of a hot coworker!!! It's been an amazing, unbelievable turn around!!
BUY IT. READ IT. TRY IT FOR YOURSELF.
FYI: I have never written a review before, but I felt strongly enough about this book to get online and take the initiative to share my opinion. :)
