Real Men Don't Text: A New Approach to Dating by Ruthie Dean, Michael Dean

Late-night texts. Mixed signals. Dead-end relationships.
This doesn’t have to be your love life.

Welcome to dating in the digital world—where phone conversations followed by dinner and a movie have been replaced by last-minute texts, ambiguous relationships, and vague group hangouts.

While technology makes it faster and easier to connect than ever before, it has also created confusion . . . And heartbreak.

Ruthie and Michael Dean have heard the same story from thousands of women: the disappearing men, the cryptic messages, the disappointing relationships, and the false intimacy of on-screen connection.

In a no-holds-barred narrative style, the husband-and-wife team chronicles their dating mishaps, hilarious attempts to find love, and many mistakes—helping women understand just what men are thinking and how to attract Mr. Right.

Real Men Don’t Text offers game-changing perspectives, bringing a fresh approach to love, sex, and dating. You don’t need to spend one more night staring at a phone screen. It’s time to take back your love life!

Texting is a way of hiding from real communication. Often young men, in an effort to not “hurt” a young woman, will text even when they don’t really want to pursue a relationship. This book is a fabulous book for young women and young men to learn what they are really communicating to the opposite sex. It also tells how to communicate to gain a mate – we might date for a few years, usually less than a decade, but we want a mate for 5 or 6 decades. Again, wonderful book and I highly recommend it for late teens and young adults!

This book is not at all what I expected. I anticipated it being more about technology instead of dating. However, it was much better than I expected. It was interesting and engaging and I think the authors did a great job of describing the dating world in light of text messaging. The entire time I was reading this book, I kept thinking about the movie He's Just Not That Into You because it was so similar in theme and message. The bottom line of both this book and that movie is that if men are interested, they will make something happen! The confusing text messages or periods of little to no contact just show you that he just isn't that interested. However, the Dean's go further than just addressing texting. They also encourage women to place a higher value on themselves and hold men to higher standards. The best part about this book is that readers get to experience perspectives on dating from both a male and female viewpoint. There is a lot of common sense in this book. My least favorite thing about this book is that there isn't a lot of new information in it. The ideas put forth are ideas that I have read elsewhere (or seen on the big screen). A lot of the wisdom in the pages of this book has been passed down from mothers to daughters throughout the years. The Deans have simply updated the information to a texting society. However, even though the ideas are not new, they are so important for our young women to internalize and live by that they bear repeating again and again and from different sources. Anyone who has a young woman in their life can help her guard her heart by sharing this book with her. I highly recommend it to any single woman who is waiting for Prince Charming, because it will help her avoid the toads.

This is a great, easy, funny read about how we need to stop hiding behind our screens and start having real, human-interaction conversations. I thought this book was a great, relevant read for today's generation.  It was an easy read, and at the end of each chapter there is a summary of what was covered in a quick, easy, 140 character "twitter-like" format.  Although, it is written for a single, young adult woman, this book has a lot of significance among today's "tech-savvy, social media, text messaging generation, and should be read by everyone - single or married, male or female, young or old. Some of the advice in this book has been talked about in other books, but the main focus of the book is not one that I have ever read about, even though it is a major problem among today's generation.  I love that this book challenges everyone to step up and stop hiding behind our screens. I like the fact that this book is written from a christian perspective (which I believe is important) and encourages readers on things like: modesty, purity, and waiting to have sex until you're married; but it is not over-the-top or in your face and can be read by believers and non-believers alike.

In the age of social media and online dating, this book is vital for Christians seeking relationships, both men and women. Ruthie & Michael write from both perspectives, helping women know the healthiest way to respond, and training men to respect and honor women from the first moment of meeting. We don't cherish relationships as much as we should, and we are losing face to face communication skills. I realize life can be a challenge, but why settle for less than God's best? Why allow others to take advantage of our kind heart and desire for relationship just to satisfy their own convenience? The book is engaging and easy to read, and very relevant. I only wish this book had the following of a general market book about how to tell when someone just 'isn't into you'. Far more valuable advice and far more sound wisdom packed in this one. My thanks to my friends at Tyndale Publishing for my advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. "Real Men Don't Text" is recommended...and pass it on to your teens.

Informative book for people entering the serious dating world! This book would be good for both young men and young women to read before getting involved in any  serious dating to try and find their future mate.  It goes into in-depth details why couples should not  text as their way of communicating.
