3.0 out of 5 stars interesting ! 6 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this interesting - to say the least, but It covers dating mainly for the under 20's perhaps? As we are now in an age where individuals are thrown into the dating scene regardless of age, I found that it didn't seem to help us older singles much - but gives an insight as to what goes on out there !!! Just what goes on in a mans brain once they are over 40? - apart from the obvious that is !!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read and some useful advice ... 21 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book would be very useful for someone with little dating experience. However being mature, a lot of the information is quite obvious and it just represents general common sense but it is a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honestly, you're not going to read a better dating book 30 April 2013
By Mal9g - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Take a look at the other best-sellers in this category, and they're all ridiculous - "Why Men Love Bitches" and "How to Get Men to Fall in Love With You Even Though You're Terrible" etc etc. This book is actually USEFUL, plus it's extremely addictive and fun to read. I'm inspired to actually GO on a date and have fun, rather than try to change myself so I can "get men to fall for me." If the author offered a phone-advice service so I could call her after dates and ask her opinion on how it went, I would use it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very modern Modern Dating 23 Jan 2014
By tamhete@wildmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for the howaboutwe membership.

All things considered, I'd say that at age 26, this book doesn't have a lot of new stuff to tell me regarding all things vanilla and mainstream in the dating world. It's full of advice that's going to seem obvious to anyone who's been dating and sexing for a while. It's got Captain Obvious advice ("be direct! Say you want to have sex!"), a frankly bizarre "judging men by their books" section (loving Joyce Carol Oates is a sign that a guy is delicate?!), an out-of-touch throwaway section about "how to know if a girl is into other girls" ("how does she feel about Shane in the L word?"), lots of casually sex-negative language ("walk of shame"), and tons of hammering it home that sleeping around is temporary and monogamy is the goal (despite some statistics at the beginning that speak to other kinds of lives)…

It's also peppered with alienating, sexist little jokes. Like how you totally need your male friends cuz they'll always be trying to get you to see the genius of Blade Runner. Because, y'know, guys are the ones who like science fiction or geeking out about movies! So funny!

There's a total absence of advice about balancing your kinks with your other dating priorities—something that my girlfriends and I talk about often!

Some of the technology stuff is good and on-point (don't stalk their facebook page on an iphone cuz you'll accidentally like something.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Feels Like Personal Advice From a Sister 30 April 2013
By Joy Engel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
From setting the stage to why dating is different today than it's ever been (and not just because of sexting!) to providing personal advice on how to prep for a date itself, this charming book is something every person should read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Clever, Authentic, Delightful Guide to Dating in our Time 3 May 2013
By Aaron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Atik and the team at HowAboutWe completely nailed it with this one. First, the book is gorgeous. Like, every page is beautifully designed and through through. Second, and more importantly, it's just so insightful. People usually think of being single as a problem. The book totally flips this false notion on its head and celebrates and glorifies dating as an amazing experience that everyone should embrace, learn from, and enjoy. So refreshing. This is really a modern book in the truest sense - for our times. Everything about dating and sex and relationships is changing so much right now and this is the first book I've read that truly speaks to this. It's inspiring. Get it - for yourself and all your single friends!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously, great 1 May 2013
By Marie Mia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the perfect solution to those dense, ridiculously titled self-help books that are gaining popularity. It's honest and straight-forward with an awesome layout and great graphics. Love it.
