In this charming book, the author takes you down the road of her past, failed relationships. It begins with another break up and her sense of helplessness, and a pathetic desire to make a bad relationship work just to be in it. She wants to give up on men, but the reader can tell that she is really tempted to give up on herself.
Instead, encouraged by her girlfriends, she embarks on a self-made dating boot camp project to learn how to be a better dater. In the process, she finds that every guy out there has something wonderful to offer-- but more importantly, she learns her own worth. As she uncovers tidbits of wisdom in each date about love and life, she shares them with us.
This book is great for the single girl who wants to change her life, for the married girl who loves romance, for the man who wants to understand what women want. Tamara Duricka Johnson is funny, self-deprecating, blatantly honest and so endearing. You will find yourself rooting for her, and perhaps for one (or four) of her dates along the way. Who will she choose for a second date? You've got to read to find out!
There is something terrifying and thrilling about going out with a complete or near stranger for the first time. You never quite know what you are going to get. Will it be boring or uncomfortable? Will we have anything to talk about? Will we have any common interests? Will I feel self-conscious, or will he put me at ease. Will something happen where I make a fool of myself or will I make a good first impression? Will he be someone I don't even want to spend the evening with, or will I want to spend the rest of my life with him? Will he like me? Do I want him to like me?
As Tamara embarks on this dating project, she hopes that she can figure out what she has been doing wrong. Now she has 31 opportunities to relearn how to date. The task is both physically and emotionally difficult, but as she takes the time open up, reserve judgment, and look for the best in each man, she learns to respect, appreciate, and many times, really connect with them. She mostly learns about herself, and how to have hope for the future.
I couldn't wait to start each chapter to read about her next dating adventure in New York City. Would it be terrible or thrilling?
