Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Though she agrees that "sometimes dating sucks," psychologist Hartman (Dating the Divorced Man) has found, through considerable research, that "during the early stages of dating, women unknowingly make one or more fundamental mistakes." Here, she enumerates the top ten such mistakes-including "You Think Men Have a Clue," "Your Attitude Sucks," and "You Plan Your Wedding After the First Date"-to help women identify and stop self-sabotaging behaviors. Throughout, Hartman puts responsibility squarely on the woman reading, a tough-love strategy assuaged with doses of compassion and empathy, and sweetened by the promise of empowerment, independence and self-knowledge. Hartman also encourages women to learn as much as possible about the men's side of things, pointing to Askmen.com and Neil Strauss's The Game. More than experts, mothers and even friends, however, Hartman believes a woman's most helpful advisor is herself; her most valuable lesson is on tuning out unhelpful voices and learning to listen to the one that knows you best.

    Changes how you look at things...

    In a quest to find answers to why I'm having challenges in dating, I picked up this book for its seemingly different approach.

    Many dating books try to pacify the single female reader by assuring them it must be the "bad guys" they choose. This book shows the reader how to accept responsibility for those with whom they spend their time. It doesn't slam men, rather changes the way women approach dating. It encourages a quest for both chemistry and compatibility, and says it's okay if both don't exist in a date, it's no single person's fault, and you control how you deal with that.

    I even ended up purchasing another copy for a single friend who is going through the same quest as me. We read it, discuss, and then head out and conquer the dating world!

    It gave me some motivation, it gave me some things to think about when I approach dating, and it gave me the tools to confidently decline to spend my time with someone who doesn't mesh with what I am looking for in a relationship.
