Some of the mistakes are pretty obvious, but some women need reminded of them, like the importance of looks. The authors tie most of their tips back to two concepts related to human evolution: availability and femininity. Evolution has wired guys’ brains to be attracted to women that send out those two signals. So, even though we may not like to admit it, looks matter a lot and guys care about that more than a girl’s personality. The authors even admit it isn’t necessarily good that this is true, but if you want to get dates you have to acknowledge it.
Other mistakes are less obvious, and more controversial. For example, the book mentions getting “friend-blocked.” This is when a girlfriend prevents a guy from approaching you. No girl wants to admit that her friends are turning away good guys because they are jealous, but it happens a lot. Identifying these friends and stopping it is good advice.
The most controversial mistake is the chapter about being too focused on other things to get a guy. At first it got me upset that the authors suggest women may have to deemphasize their careers, etc to get a date. However, I do see their point. Life is about choices. The authors clearly say careers, family, etc, are great, but that women shouldn’t act surprised when they don’t get dates if they actually don’t make attracting a man a priority.
The book is entertaining and easy to read, and the science behind it all is fascinating. The advice may seem a little too blunt at times, but their concern is helping women get dates, not necessarily telling us what we want to hear. Just trying a few of the tips got me more attention immediately. The appendices are pretty helpful. They contain workbook like material related to various chapters.
Thank you David and Jonathan. I hope to be one of your success stories.
I still give this five stars though, since it is a good guide. It's a very clear and well explained list on what exactly men find attractive and how to use that to draw them in. The majority of the tips are very easy to implement and all of them are effective. I highly recommend this book, just take it with a grain of salt.
