    Loved This Book!

    Loved it for so many reasons! I bought it because I thought it would be good for a few laughs. And it is -- it's very funny. But then, something else started to happen. The more I read these fabulous stories about fabulous women who accept ridiculous things from the men in their lives... well, the book kind of morphed from a collection of humorous stories into a self-help book. Why the heck do we women do this stuff? And we do! We all do! Wait till you read the story about the girl who compromised her standards to date a porn star -- and then he dumped her because he thought she was a slut! Well, I'm glad I bought this book, because my whole level of awareness about relationships has changed. I laughed, I cried, and I am forever changed.

    okay, but not what I wanted

    Most of these stories are by women who are MUCH older than I am. And many of the stories left me saying, "So what?" I was expecting much more humor and stories I could relate to. The laughs are few and far between.<BR/>A few were interesting, though.
