I know so many men and women who need to read and re-read her sections on: "Not just looking for dates but enjoying life," "Invite Interest by Showing Interest," and "Focus on Fun and Friendship." Too many people don't do this - and its soooo important! Even if you've been out in the dating world a while, this book is a great way to brush up on your dating skills and review some new possibilities. In fact, I think a lot of married couples would perk up their relationships by reading the sections on Sexual Intimacy and Communication!
For people re-entering the dating scene after being attached a long time, author Tessina takes the fear out of going back to being single. This should be on the "Gift Registry" for anyone who's ever been divorced!
So if you'd rather die than date - don't! Get yourself a copy of this book and you'll be ready in no time for dinner and a movie with someone new. It's a terrific guide for both men and women back in the dating scene.
There is a fear of change, of going taken outside one's comfort zone. The unknown always conjures up images based on myth rather than fact. Keeping an open mind about change will lead to an enrichment of the human experience.
Humans are a sociable race. They crave the company of others of their kind. It is this part of the human condition that makes us all vulnerable.
Being reliant on another starts from the time of conception. Once out of the womb this reliance can last up to twenty years or more. So the need to fit in and be accepted by other humans is an integral part of our being.
Dating is part of the process we use to seek acceptance both as a companion, friend, lover and soul mate. One must approach this process with caution. Letting romantic notions get in the way of common sense can lead to untold disasters.
During the teen phase of people's lives, life is one great adventure. New ideas and feelings seek one's attention. Yet teenagers have the need for acceptance by others within their group.
To want acceptance on equal terms does not diminish with age. The environment in which it occurs will change through life's journey. This can challenge a person's belief in themselves and their ability to makes friends.
The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again is an excellent book dealing with the highs and lows of getting out and meeting new people. Not all of those people we meet in our society make an ideal partner. There are seedy people who prey on others weaknesses.
For those people wanting to take the plunge and get back into dating, this book is a must. It covers all of what one needs to know, to protect yourself and your family when meeting new companions. It is a book that I highly recommend.
