The book every female should be given at birth

I am not sure who told me about this book years ago. By the time I received it & read it I was already in my early 30's. I sure wish someone had given me this book in my early 20's as I wasted many years of having my heart broken for nothing. This book teaches you how t...
I am not sure who told me about this book years ago. By the time I received it & read it I was already in my early 30's. I sure wish someone had given me this book in my early 20's as I wasted many years of having my heart broken for nothing. This book teaches you how to date. It can be a little too much to take especially for a modern day woman but believe me it works! It also took some time to learn & apply these rules effectively and it took a lot of work to undo all the BS that my mother and society had taught me about dating. By the time I started to date my husband I had almost mastered these rules. Now I am happily married to a man who adores & can't live without me. Who knew a book & friends to the rules could provide do much! This is about the 10th time I have repurchased this book as I keep passing it onto the many girls who are in the modern dating world. Get the book, practice forever & enjoy having men flock all over you.

I had to read this book for my Sociology class on Human Sexuality last semester and write a paper on it. Unfortunately, I must have chosen the worst book! I found this book to be ridiculously snotty and ignorant and superficial. Sure, it had a FEW good rules, probably under 10 rules, but the rest were just ridiculous. It's very damning in that it's got a terrible rule of "If you don't follow our rules, you'll never find love or a husband who will love you!!!" My boyfriend and I had some fun reading how idiotic the rules were, because we must have broken just about all the rules and still love each other very much. As a matter of fact, we still joke about it whenever we break stupid rules or make stupid mistakes in general. This was my first time reading a self-help book and I found it to be very pushy... I'm not sure how it's supposed to be, but they're really demanding that you follow EVERY rule as if your life depended on it. What bothered me the most was their idea that you had to be a different person in order to find love, going to the extremes of going under the knife to achieve it. One of its main themes is basically "change who you are in order to win your lover/future husband over" & then "keep that persona up so he will continue to love you throughout your marriage." It seems to me like you're living a lie and on your toes in order to marry someone who may or may not actually love you for who you really are. Here is some sound and simple advice from an 18 year old with a best friend of 3.5 years and boyfriend of one: BE YOURSELF!! Don't be clingy, obviously, but above all, look first for friendship in a man who has integrity, character, honesty, and respect for you. Don't change your looks or your nose or your fashion to please him. He should love you as you are and if he doesn't, then he wouldn't have deserved you in the first place. Good luck to you ladies out there and God bless; (un)fortunately for me, I'm just not a "Rule's Girl"!! Hahahaha... :P

    THE RULES

    I read this book as a way to help understand about establishing healthy boundries in relationships. It is interesting how we neglect boundries in our lives at times. What is interesting is how Old Testament scripture talks about boundry stones and how it is wrong to constantly move boundry markers. Think about how constantly moving boundries make it impossible for the land to be uaed to its full potential. So it is as well in our relationships. Boundries are healthy. Boundries, when established in healthy ways for the right reasons, can help relationships to reach their full potentials. This is good for people starting to date. Read it as these are real world examples. It will force you to think about the issues presented. Though it is secular, instead of getting offeneded think about What scripturrs says about the issues raised. Then use the strategies suggested to enforce christian boundries. Then don't mobe the boundry markers! Though this book is secular in examples it is helpful in establishing healthy boundries. The EASILY OFFENDED CHRISTIAN HAS BEEN WARNED! But it is good for a peraon who is starting to date. There are other christian books out there on the subject matter. When finish them I will post. Anyway. Think about it. TTYL Have a nice day.

    Followed 'The Rules' and I'm still single!

    I think that this book needs a major upgrade for 2007! I followed these rules and to date I am still single. When I didn't follow them, I got dates galore! Some of the rules are on point and there are some that just left me scratching my head. Read it for yourself and if it helps you out, that's great!
