I get that men love an elusive girl and it's a delicate dance to keep him interested but some of the advice in this book just goes against creating a foundation for a long term relationship; for example, the author suggests in Chapter 10 How to Stop Texting Once You Start to tell him "The keypad is to sensitive, you don't like squinting at the screen, you can't stand creative spelling..you don't want to chip your nail polish!" Seriously? But in Chapter 20 the first sentence states that responding to a voicemail with text is a great idea, since "less is more." That's just one example, there's more! Then there's all these one-offs and exceptions, it just gets ridiculous.
The premise of this book is to give us a modern day version of "The Rules" which includes whether or not to text. However, a lot of the advice in this book contradicts "The Rules" (a book by a different author), and even itself. In one section, the book tells you to have your phone on you at all times, and if the guy calls, answer the call regardless of what you are doing, even if you are IN A BUSINESS MEETING! What? This completely goes against "The Rules" about being elusive and only answering the phone some of the time and only returning calls on occassion. But the author states that your goal is to get the date, so that means you always have to answer when the guy calls.
I'm sorry, but I can't imagine ducking out of a meeting at work to try and set up a date with a guy. My boss would die laughing!
In regard to texting, she says you should NEVER text with a guy. If he asks for your number and sends you a test text, tell him you don't have your phone on you. If he then asks why you don't text back, tell him you don't have texting. But then she goes on to say if you are going to text, here's what you should do. So wait, if I shouldn't text with a guy, then why are you telling me how and when to text?
It's a good quick book, and for a few dollars it shouldn't hurt. But it's on the bottom of my list of favorite dating books. Why Men Love Bitches, Why Men Marry Bitches, and The Tao of Dating are GREAT books!
I would think all of this advice was fluff, but there is a section at the end of each chapter asking you questions about how this theory applied to your last relationship. You find out that you thought you were doing right was actually what lost you the chase. Good way to apply the texting rules to your dating tool box.
