Some of the advice feels very contradictory. It encourages women to be open and honest when speaking but to avoid acting on their instincts. Meanwhile, it tells them to ignore what men tell them and to read into their actions. I have a hard time accepting the idea that men and women are such different creatures that they should be exact opposites in this regard. Personally, I expect honesty in both words and actions out of my husband and strive to give him the same.
I did like the author's suggestion that women set standards and stick to them. But, I found her insistence that those standards be old fashioned courtship rules to be a bit silly. She harped on things like the importance of little things like men paying for dates, but was perfectly willing to let big things like pre-marital sex slide.
I suppose my biggest issue with the book was that I just don't buy the premise tha there exists a general set of specific rules that applies to all relationships. I think people are just too unique for that to be the case.
Then, ta-dah, the book came to me. Now living alone, I had time to read it and actually soak it up. Everything made so much sense. GF911 helps you understand that by lowering your standards, you actually create the problems in the relationship. I knew this, but needed cold, hard words to slap me in the face. Many of my friends would make excuses for me. Like "What a jerk!" "I can't believe he did that to you!" But after reading the book and taking responsibilty for lowering my standards and accepting "crumbs", I saw the light. I have been doing it wrong for so long!
I wrote my goodbye letter and feel more empowered. I wrote my standards list, and feel even more empowered. Why have so many of us lost that self-respect? GF911 tells you that you can get it back!
I am referring all of my friends going through realtionship problems to this book. It has helped me understand where I always go wrong in breakups and why I always feel like the a-hole when I "go rogue".
Thanks GF911 for all of you help!
Opposite Day is something in the book that describes what a man says vs his actions. This is "nail on the head", where my man is currently at within our relationship. It is comforting to find something that identifies what your man is doing within your relationship, because it gives you understanding and now I know how to get what I want out him. Whether he responds positively, my being True to Myself will empower me to not be concerned with his decision. The book is empowering and I feel stronger after reading it.
I sent an email to GF911, and she personally responded with advice. How awesome is it to read a book and be able to gain further understanding or advice about your personal situation from the author herself. I can't say enough great things about this book. It is a great and easy read. You should purchase this book today and be on your way to being True to Yourself.
