my problem is that this book gives the exact opposite advise of a lot of other books. for example. this book says don't do your hair or get dressed up nicely. you'll look desperate. men will hear your biological clock ticking from the next room over. the other books swear you absolutely must get your hair and nails done and you must look your best.
this one also says never settle. wait until you find your perfect half. even if you're 36.5 and you meet a nice guy don't stop there, wait until you meet your absolute perfect match. meanwhile on the sidebar, there's an ad/suggestion for a book that makes the case for settling for mr good enough.
guess i'll read that one next.
anyway this book clarified nothing.
