Read an Excerpt

dating

Women often say, "I can't find a good man," or "There are no good guys out there." Well, I beg to differ. There are "good" single guys everywhere, and like you, they're looking for someone. Many of them are in situations or stages of their own lives that are preventing them from realizing their full potential, and they just haven't met the right woman, the one who will inspire them to be all they can be. The key is changing how you look at life and opening your mind to the possibility of meeting someone you would least expect, in a place where you would least expect it. Once you connect with a man who interests you, the goal is to make plans to see him again with the intention of dating — or, at the very least, to speak again soon. This requires exchanging contact information and being proactive. In this day and age, women, like men, must seize the moment and make their desires known. Dating is the discovery stage of relationship-building. It's the time when you are supposed to learn more about him, but also — and equally important — it's when he can learn about you so you can both determine if there is a connection. Love requires an alternating current. To harness and generate love, the connection must flow both ways. A direct current or a one-way connection is considered lust, not love.

While I have read many dating book, I was so happy to read this one. I have watched the first season of Steven's show and thought he was really onto a lot of different things that women need to be aware of. His book explains these things and really does give you a "crash" course in love. It's highly readable and very enjoyable, as well. I recommend it to all the single ladies.

This is on par with a book titled "Dating for Idiots." There is nothing here that is not obvious or common sense. There are no insightful or helpful tips. Basically, this book is simply re-tread. All of these things have been said or put out there before. The whole concept of this supposed sexy mama, and suave son is so lame it's a joke. Reality TV is the decline of Western civilization, and this book is an extention of that. Dating advice for very low brow, unintelligent people, no one with any brains could find this useful at all.
