About the Author

Lisa Winning hails from Australia and attended the London School of Economics before landing in New York City to figure out this whole advice game. Having spent years watching her girlfriends scream “he texted!” the morning after a long night out, she realized they needed a bigger outlet. Lisa figured there should be a way girls could get answers on the questions they care about most. So, she created HeTexted.

Carrie Henderson McDermott is the co-founder and editorial director of HeTexted. Previously, Carrie worked at Glamour magazine, where she wrote about all things beauty. So, when she’s not busy telling you how to respond to the 3am text (read: don’t!), she can point you in the direction of a mean blow-out. Or explain why most guys hate red lipstick on a first date. Carrie spent a bunch of single years in New York City before she met a guy at a bar. On a Tuesday. At karaoke night. Then, he texted. Now, she calls him her husband.

Single women from every generation have always wondered if the man that occupies her thoughts is “The One.” Does she ever cross his mind as often as he crosses hers? In today’s modern world where the majority of communication is done electronically with a slew of various gadgets and devices, dating has become a tricky ledge that women find themselves treading upon very carefully, trying to decipher what Mr. Wonderful’s most recent text, email, Facebook comment, etc., really means. With He Texted, the authors bring the reader some direct analysis and somewhat expert advice and varying points of view from three men, known as The Bros covering a wide range of scenarios to help the single gal determine if he’s a keeper or if she should move on.

While reading this book, I couldn’t stop thinking that if the women who submitted the texts for analysis spent as much time verbally communicating with the man she is interested in as she does trying to first decipher and comprehend his texts, emails, etc., she would probably find herself in a meaningful relationship in no time. But then what do I know? I’m certainly no expert on relationships or matters of the heart, but I can’t help but think that in order to determine if you are compatible, it’s best to get to know each other speaking out loud to one another. As a society, are we really too busy to do that or are we just lazy and just want to see positive results with little to no effort on our part?

I found this book very easy to read and enjoyed that the authors had real men offering real advice about the various topics ranging from “he friended” to “he booty-texted” to “he loves you” and all of the pitfalls and drama in between. You could also get the same advice, feedback and interaction if you just visit the He Texted website.

I felt slightly out of place reading and reviewing a book based on single relationships whilst being happily married. Now I only wish I had read it whilst being single! He texted is the perfect combo of good advice for those who need it whilst being light hearted enough to remind us to not take it all too seriously. A fun read fist and foremost.... with advice from some pretty cool people thrown in.

I really didn't like this book; material or format of how it was presented. I made myself read it to the end as I do not like to leave things unfinished, but it was a struggle and was glad to have it end. I found it very juvenile and the 3 guys presented in the book as being quite conceited and somewhat obnoxious. Don't waste your time or money.

*I borrowed He Texted by Lisa Winning & Carrie McDermott from the borrow program at Barnes & Noble, and the following is my honest review.

To be completely honest, I am not so sure why I decided to pick up He Texted. I guess I just thought that it seemed quite interesting when I saw it at work. That and because I do have a serious texting problem, and was completely single when starting this book. I thought, why not I’ll just read it and see what it has to say about texting and boys.

It ended up being interesting. I enjoyed the way the book was set up very much. Each chapter had its own subject corresponding to something guys do. For example, one chapter was called “He Loves You” and that chapter goes into detail about the different ways males express their love, which ways are significant, and which ways are not. This book was filled with interesting information, I actually found a couple things useful that I will remember from now on.

A nice aspect of the book was that the two ladies writing this book used real males to back up their theories. After the introduction to the chapter, both ladies had a page or two explaining the situation, and or giving examples. Then the three males would give their ideas as well. I liked when they shared their thoughts because it did not seem fake. Everything they said seemed like it would make sense when thinking about the specific topic.

For a book found in the self help section I found it enjoyable to read, and easy to keep up with. It easily earned a 5 out of 5 stars. There was not an overwhelming amount of information in this book. It was more or less a pick and choose what you wanted to keep with you and that is fine for a book like this.

I loved this book and the great insight it gave into dating in the digital world. Between texting, facebook messaging and snapchat it can get pretty difficult. The Bros advice was amazing and Jared was absolutely hilarious! Definitely recommend this book to anyone who's dating. From 20 year olds to 50 year olds, there's something in here that will help you out before your next date.

Are you currently in the dating pool or have recently re-entered? This book is a must read!

As an "old" married lady, I am not currently in the dating pool and have been out of it for awhile, so this book completely intrigued me. I am not too old that texting was happening when I was dating and facebook was around - not like it is now, but social media and things have changed a bit since I left the dating world. More or less, I read this book just intrigued by the things that women and men face with the ability to google one's potential date and find out basically their whole life story from a few clicks. I love that this book was set up almost from the start of a relationship to the possible end and how one should act through each stage with men giving their thoughts also.
