--- Chris Reed, Pastor to 20s/30s and Singles at Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA
"True Love Dates is spot on! There isn't one single I know who doesn't want to be in a successful relationship. Many singles today have lost hope because they don't know what a healthy relationship looks like or have the vision and tools to get there. Debra addresses every question singles are asking (or should be asking themselves). Most importantly, Debra shows that not only does true love date, it is only possible through a relationship with God. If you're single, you need to read this book!"

I appreciate greatly Fileta's charge to really examine yourself in light of God's word first and foremost. It is so easy for us to get wrapped up in how another can fill in the holes we think are missing in our lives without even recognizing it. Fileta charges her readers to take a long hard look in the mirror, while also not being held hostage to one's past.
I also appreciate Debra's approach dating with her background in mental health. Although in different fields, I too am in the caring profession and often watch the demise of sanity happen when someone starts dating the wrong person -- or even sometimes the right person. Dating is confusing and for many of us, really sucky :) Fileta really encourages her readers to observe themselves and their behaviors in light of this, which I think is so so poignant and important.
Lastly, I appreciate the use of Debra's questions throughout the book. It's easy to read through a book such as this one and miss out on the opportunity to really reflect and allow the text to change your heart/mind, the questions that are offered help usher you in this process.
The big issue is that: People are very different and every relationship is different and has its own pace. The key to relationships is finding someone who matches up with you and works with you at your pace. And the funny thing is that the more people you meet and the more people you date, the more you become accepting of this and the more you adapt and adjust to this. This book seems like it's best written for somebody just entering the dating world, or someone very naive in the Modern Way We Date Now (and if you possibly fall into the latter category, this book is definitely not for you). I would say, read the author's blog. Take a pass on the book (I regret purchasing it) because it will only make you feel lonelier and judged if you aren't happily married (a few other reviews with lower-stars expand on why).
Also, the advice isn't great. And the author's writing isn't too strong either.
