Spindel has assembled this dating guide based on her 13 years of successful professional matchmaking and understanding of what men want in a relationship. Using client quotes, real situations, and reflective questions, she offers advice on every aspect of dating, from where to meet potential dates to breaking up with unsuitable partners. Topics like what to talk about on the first date, how long to wait until having sex, and when to start meeting the other party's friends are considered. The courage to be honest as a factor in desirability is repeated throughout the text. The book's layout is appealing and the author's tone respectful of the reader and her clients. Recommended for all libraries.
