'The Tao Of Dating offers smart, successful women the ultimate dating road map. For those seeking a lifetime of deep love and fulfillment, this intelligent, spiritual, practical and wise approach provides much-needed guidance.' --Arielle Ford, author of The Soulmate Secret: Manifest the Love of Your Life with The Law of Attraction and Wabi Sabi Love: The Ancient Art of Finding Perfect Love in Imperfect Relationships
'Dr Ali offers so much practical wisdom, and delivers it with deep humor and heart. The Tao of Dating is a profoundly helpful manual for women who want to feel their best and be truly fulfilled in love.' --Katherine Woodward Thomas, bestselling author of Calling in 'The One': 7 Weeks to Attract the Love of Your Life
'Dr Ali has given us in The Tao of Dating the gift of the goddesses, reminding us that we women are the ones who hold the keys to our fulfillment in relationships -- that when we claim our feminine power of simply being who we are, we cannot but find the happiness we want. It's up to us to navigate the ship to the safe harbor we so desire. Thanks Ali for honouring women so deeply!' --Agapi Stassinopoulos, author of Gods And Goddesses in Love: Getting the Life & Love That's Right for You and Conversations with the Goddesses
'The Tao of Dating is, simply, the book that I wish I'd written myself. I couldn't help but marvel that one man had compiled such a wealth of dating experience and spiritual wisdom into one slim tome. I have already bought copies for my private coaching clients and could not recommend Dr. Ali's work with any greater enthusiasm. Smart women who sometimes struggle with dating have found their Bible.' --Evan Marc Katz, Dating Coach and author of Why You're Still Single: Things Your Friends Would Tell You If You Promised Not to Get Mad
About the Author
Hi there! Dr Ali Binazir here, and I'm thrilled you're paying a visit. Relevant credentials:
- I've got a bachelor's degree from Harvard College. This means I can put two thoughts together and express them in a way you understand. More important, I also know how smart people (i.e. you) think and behave since I've been around a lot of them.
- I have an M.D. from the University of California San Diego School of Medicine. This is where I learned how to diagnose and treat problems, including those relating to the human mind.
- I have an M.Phil. from Cambridge University and was also a former consultant at McKinsey & Company. That's more training on how to diagnose & fix problems.
-- I'm a certified clinical hypnotherapist. This means after figuring out what someone's doing wrong, I have tools to actually change their behavior.
Much more important than all of that: I've been on hundreds of dates. And I've had thousands of men write to me for the past few years, telling me what turns them on (and off) about women. Translation: I know how guys think and what they like. And in clear, practical terms, I can teach how you can be the thing they like -- even love.
I'm committed to helping you become the most deliriously happy and fulfilled version of you, and am glad to be of service.

Ladies, this book os a must have not only if you're looking to date "better," but also of are interested in what you can do on the inside to improve your dating experience.
This book has everything from meditation to real life gentle advice on how to get one's pretty head out of the gutter (you know, for example, when you really like the guy and you want to text him all the time saying how much you miss him and want to xo him, but you don't know if you should, and then if you do, he all of a sudden starts to text you less :D - that kinda thing).
But all kidding aside, this book isn't AT ALL about superficial dating advice, it is more about changing (no, improving) your perception of yourself which in turn, will improve your dating life and attract the right kind of a guy.
Dr. Ali, I just want to tell you that I am SO SO grateful to you for this book. It's not only great advice, it's a confidence booster that is written with so much care, warmth, and awesome humor.
That said, this was a fantastic book! The author says in the Introduction that the reader should take what serves her well, and leave the rest, so that's what I tried to do. There is excellent advice in here about embracing who you really are, not trying to be anything else, celebrating your uniqueness, and letting the best parts of you shine through so that others (and hopefully those others include Good Guys) can desire and appreciate you. Oh, and there's some great tips about how to get some attention in the first place without being a you-know-what. In short, how to get the kind of attention you actually WANT.
I read this in a few hours last night, and made several bookmarks for a few exercises that I know I will want to do again and again. I have a date tonight, and fully intend to try some of the advice from this book!
In the very first chapter Dr. Binazir points out "Deep down, women seek relationships not because they want a particular guy, but rather because they want the feelings that a good relationship brings them." The chapter then becomes about loving yourself fully, focusing on all the great things you already have going on in your life and teaches you the habits to implement be successful with anything in life. In chapter two (2) Dr. A guides you through discovering or analyzing "who you really are" and gives you different techniques from meditation to yoga to help you along. Notice the theme? This book is really about you, not about dating! I mean yes, he does eventually get to the dating part, but by the time you get to it you are so empowered, feeling sexy, grateful and loving towards yourself, the dating stuff is just icing.
This book has helped me change how I view and treat myself as well as the ones I love. Dr A. writes in a very relaxed, easy to understand way that makes it feel as if you are speaking to someone you already know. He doesn't have you make drastic sudden changes at once, however one step or chapter at a time he has you try new things and by the end of the book you are like: Wow, how can something so simple be so life changing?
I read so many books, I forget who said what. Not the case with this book, my friends and I are always making references to it, but most important, any time I have had a question, I have emailed Dr. A and guess what? He has responded, not brushing me off, but an actual detailed email with his thoughts on the matter. Most times the question has not been about the book but about life in general. His blog is outstanding, I follow it religiously.
Since reading this book, I meditate more, am more faithful to yoga or working out, I engage in more "feel good" activities, I feel even better about myself (I always have, more so now) and most importantly I'm always seeking to do what makes me feel good and happy. This was an amazing purchase.
