The Real Rules: How to Find the Right Man for the Real You by Barbara De Angelis

Do you really believe you can find true love by playing games? Get real! Real secrets about men. Real truth about love.

When love becomes a game, everybody loses. Bestselling author and renowned relationship expert Barbara De Angelis, Ph.D., knows what woman really need today—and it’s not a relationship built on lies and manipulation. Instead, she offers a real alternative: The Real Rules.

The real rules are not about trying to be what a man wants so he’ll marry you. They're not about fear—fear of being alone, fear of “blowing” a relationship with one wrong move. The real rules are about becoming the confident, unique woman you really are and finding a man who loves you because of it.

In The Real Rules, Barbara De Angelis won’t just teach you how to get a man—she’ll teach you how to get the right man, and create a love that lasts forever. Learn:

• How to Stop Sabotaging Your Love Life with the Old Rules
• The Six Most Important Character Traits to Look for in a Man
• What Men Really Want in a Woman (And in the Bedroom)
• When and How to Ask a Man for a Commitment
• How to Avoid the Wrong Men and Attract the Right Ones
. . . and more

Great book which talks about having an honest REAL relationship with yourself, first and foremost, but knowing how to interact with men without playing games or staying in dead-end relationships. This book peeked my interest because I love Barbara De Angelis and because "THE RULES," which was written years ago, was an awful, mind manipulating book. I highly recommend anything written by Barbara De Angelis for couples, men & women. Everyone deserves love & don't deny it or deprive yourself of it. We were not put on Earth to be alone!

This book is EXACTLY what it says in the title and that is REAL! I m 4 weeks post breakup, and have been doing a lot of reading, especially about relationships. This book is highly theraputic in a empowering way! Barbara is right about being yourself, instead of ' becomming an actor' in ANY relationship. Although my breakup ended on ONE bad note (a dealbreaker in which I gave him the boot and never looked back), I now realize that there were warning signs. This book will be so motivating no matter where u are in relationships status. MUST READ!

This is the kind of advice men like and want from you. Why do the rules men don't like? Isn't that doing the total opposite when trying to be more appealing to men? Do the things men like, and here in this book is a great start. Read this! Perry Rose, author of I Love You..Will You Marry Me?!
