    5 Stars! A must read before jumping into a new relationship! Wish I had read this book earlier!

    I picked up this book on a whim after having recently jumped back into the dating pool after a long, self-imposed dry spell. I was feeling very down in the dumps after a "great date" that then didn't go anywhere. What is the problem? Is it me? Is it him? Did I do something wrong? Did he? This book has answers for all of that. I especially loved Gray's explanation for the 5 stages of relationships: Attraction, Uncertainty, Exclusivity, Intimacy and Engagement. What I learned is that it's all a matter of learning where you - and your partner - are in the 5 stages. It's never going to work if you're not in the same place. By being aware of what stage both of you are in, you can modify your actions and reactions suitable to the proper stage. Wish I had known that before blowing things with the "great date" guy! Now that I understand the stages, I can plan my reactions differently for the next guy.
    This book is NOT about hiding who you are. Instead, it's about recognizing the patterns we fall into, and offers advice for how to slow down and stop having unrealistic expectations. If your partner is still in an earlier stage, Gray's book offers advice for how to step back to the earlier stage yourself, until you can both move into the next stage together.

    Very Helpful

    I love this book, it has so much information and is very accurate to the real world. I have read some stuff in this book that I know I have done in the past and sit and wonder what ever happened? Now I know. Very informational and encouraging to someone starting over or wanting to find a good man. I find these types of books are essential to starting a new relationship off fresh and on the right track.

    a woman wants respect

    John Gray knows and understands the respect a woman wants from a man on a date.He explains what a woman needs to feel cherished and what a man needs to feel he can someday get somewhere with the woman,but on the woman's terms not his,because the man's terms will lead to sex before the woman is ready and she will feel used. John Gray takes pressure off the woman,and helps the man understand how to keep a woman's interest.

    Read this book!

    To better communicate with a significant other, I highly recommend reading this book. All of the questions I ever had about Men's behavior was answered. Now I understand how to communicate for a stronger, meaningful and deeper relationship. Because I am discerning, I like that this book was written by a trained professional. Great book, I'm buying a hard copy and am definitely a John Gray fan now!

    Wise and results guaranteed

    I married early and divorced after 10years. I needed a refresher on how to date and I picked the first book I saw that had an appropriate title... A great source, very simple and wise at the same time. The book not only tells you dos and don'ts, but explains why with the focus on the differences between men and women. I have recently failed a relationship that was promising to be great and, after reading the book, I have an answer. It's all about stages and a gradual transformation from one level to another. I started my last relationship from the fourth level and I am glad I've read this book - it will save me from another disaster. I highly recommend it to everybody, who is not married.

    A Wonderful Guide to Dating

    This book was well written. I began reading the book when I saw it at Barnes and Noble, little did I know that I would be so hooked! I was stunned by the accuracy of the information dealing with dating. It really made me think about past relationships and it helped me find out what went wrong (although I haven't been in many relationships.) Highly Recommended!!!!! It'll help you out in this 'dating' game we all play.
