Master Dating: How to Meet and Attract Quality Men

Overview

Asking a woman out is one of the hardest things a man has to do. That's why you have to help the man of your dreams work up the nerve to do it, and let him know that when he does, you'll say yes! In Master Dating, Felcia Rose Adler will show you how. The secret is to be open, outgoing, confident and approachable. But there's only one "rule" to follow: be yourself and don't play games.

Overview

Asking a woman out is one of the hardest things a man has to do. That's why you have to help the man of your dreams work up the nerve to do it, and let him know that when he does, you'll say yes! In Master Dating, Felcia Rose Adler will show you how. The secret is to be open, outgoing, confident and approachable. But there's only one "rule" to follow: be yourself and don't play games. Consider this. Women often worry about how long to wait before calling a man because they don't want to "seem desperate." Adler says that's silly. The "waiting game" probably started as a face-saving device and ended up as a strategy to manipulate others. But it's still a game and it never works. If a guy likes you because you didn't call him, he likes you for a game you were playing, not for the way you really are. You'll seem desperate and needy only if you truly are. Being desperate and needy has nothing to do with liking an individual person; it has to do with a neurotic desire to be liked by everyone. When you're truly confident, you can like someone and if he doesn't like you, that's perfectly all right. If a man doesn't like you -- the real you -- why would you want him for a partner? His lack of taste instantly disqualifies him as a candidate for a successful relationship with you. Once you accept this basic concept, your whole attitude and approach to dating will change. Now you're no longer trying to be liked by every man you meet. Now you're interviewing to see who qualifies for you, based on his likes -- and yours. There's no risk and no desperation. Master Dating is full of wisdom like this. Yet its author is neither a psychologist nor a therapist. In her own words, she's a "real person out there on the front lines," a hairdresser who owns her own funky little shop, The Jungle, in Los Angeles. After more than a decade of listening to clients and giving them advice that worked, she finally listened to their advice -- to write this book. She explains that the "happy-eno

    This book is a must for the single woman!

    I bought this book six years ago in 2000 straight after my divorce. After a few failed relationships, I found the book at the bottom of my draw in January this year (2006). Within one month I had found the love of my life by literally using the advice in the book. I have just recommended the book to a girl friend in England.

    Excellent!

    I found this to be a really interesting read after a friend of mine past it to me on the bus. I stopped complaining and took a more active role in my love life instead of sitting around passively waiting (and getting passed over). Good show!

    Finally dating and enjoying it!

    This book is great... I picked it up from a girl friend (not girlfriend) and it helped me understand the RIGHT rules of the dating game. I can't believe all the mistakes I was making. Adler really tells it like it is and goes on to help, help, HELP! Every guy should read this and start enjoying the dating game.

    Results! Met boyfriend in 6 days, raise at work -- a month!

    I know it's weird that a dating book would help me to get a raise at work, but it's true. It also brought me more friends, the best relationship ever, a promotion and more respect from everyone, but best of all, I'm enjoying life more. I can't say what part of the book made all this happen. I think it is the overall philosophy which just got in me as I read. I've always worked on my confidence, tried many workshops and books to get it. Before this book I knew how but couldn't make it happen. After this book I automatically got confident. If only for those parts, get this book which says that true confidence makes you attractive to everyone and opens all doors. When I read that, I didn't agree, but now there is no doubt in my mind, IT'S TRUE!

    Dating Made Do Able

    I was divorced for one year. Never really dated this gave me the courage, the guidelines and the right frame of mind to meet and date. The book is great. I kept referencing it when I got discouraged. It is fun, and practical. I met and dated a lot of men. I highly recommend it.

    Fun, entertaining and great tips for meeting men!

    Well, I don't know what the teacher from Palo Alto was expecting, but it sounds like she wanted a psychology book. I found 'MasterDating' to be a wonderfully irreverent, charming and upbeat guide to how to talk to anyone anytime. I use her principles to network for business, and they are extremely helpful. I am able to walk up to people and start conversations like never before--and call them on the phone, too! Felicia is a bright, witty and fun writer. You can't go wrong with this book!

    Playful, and USEFUL!

    You may have heard some of the things in MasterDating before, but the author's style and sharp wit bring an entertaining perspective. The book also poses some interesting rhetorical questions, and challenges us to take responsibility for our own lives. Works for me -- I just married a Quality Man!

    This book will change your life!!!!

    A friend recommended Master Dating, and so I reluctantly read 'another dating book'. What I found inside was an amazing read, full of interesting tips and strategies to not only find happiness with the 'quality man' of my dreams, but also to just be happy with who I am, and not worry about finding a guy just so I won't be alone. I'm now in a wonderful relationship with the right guy, and loving every second of it! Thank you, Felicia Rose Adler!

    I got my hearts desire the very day I got this book.

    A trusted friend recommended I read this book. I turned a long time friend/crush into a romance the sam day I read it. Now he's my boyfriend. This is the best relationship ever and I have Master Dating to thank for it. It also helped be to become ultra confident in the rest of my life and that's a first. The great thing is that, unlike in the past, I am not afraid of this relationship ending and becoming single again. If I wansn't so happy with the way things are, I would actually be looking forward to it so that I could try out the rest of what I learned. I have some friends in awful relationships who admit they are only staying because they dread being single again. I am going to MAKE them read it too. It was so much fun to read with it's conversational style that I read it in one sitting. Give it a try, you'll be glad you did!

    The inside scoop on the female mind

    This explained some of the mysteries of how the dating scene works from the female point of view. It gave me some really good pointers on how to meet and attract quality women.

    Master Dating: How to Meet and Attract Quality Men

    My friend MADE me read this book and I'm sure glad she did! The author makes a lot of sense and has a great writing style. I learned a ton about men and why I have always attracted the wrong kind in the past. Now I date all quality men. I never realized how I was keeping myself from good healthy love until I read this book. It was a great confidence booster in all areas of my life. It is rare to learn so much from a book that is so much fun to read.

    Master Dating: How to Meet and Attract Quality Men

    I LOVE THIS BOOK! It was a blast to read and by the time I was half way through it I had so many men asking me out, I felt like I was the bell of the ball. By the time I was done I had so much confidence that I was turning all but the best away. Now I am so in love with the greatest guy. We have the best, most fun, healthy relationship. I know that I owe it all to this book. It was really insightful and full of unique philosophies. I think this book has changed my life in many ways. I MADE my best friend read it, and she loved it too!
