Format: Paperback
It turned out that my problem was to be too enthusiastic, honest and excitable! In came an email from a chap and I thought it rude not to ping back an immediate and breathless answer because I'm that sort of happy little bunny! Well - this book brought me down to earth and helped me to understand why at least two perfectly good dates didn't go any further. Within minutes I was busy texting saying thank you so much for a lovely evening, blah, blah, blah! During the date I felt a compunction to explain why my ex was to blame for the divorce(!) and to divulge my current difficulties - only fair to explain everything so they knew what they were marrying - oops - dating. My profile was certainly not what these ladies suggest: imagine there's a taxi waiting for you downstairs and you have to write a brief, upbeat and zingy profile before you rush off out! Us girls spend ages creating a masterpiece that will bring in some great and dependable prospect whilst actually scaring off most perfectly nice guys with our intense longing for our 'soulmate'! This was refreshing advice and absolutely spot on. My profile was immediately 'lightened' up and in came some 'old bloke' who lived nearby offering to meet for a coffee. I was 'busy' for a few days and so he had to wait! We met, we got on well and as I left I felt he was keen but, as instructed, I didn't touch my phone! He texted a lot and I made him wait a couple of hours for each reply. Make him wait to see you and make him wait for sex too! If he's just after that then, as these ladies say, 'NEXT'!! He worked really hard to sweep me off my feet, taking me to concerts, restaurants and the cinema! He was actually very young at heart and great fun - thank goodness I didn't judge him by his age or qualifications!Read more ›

Up to date advice, well worth the read for any woman planning to join an internet dating agency. Would say that it was best read in conjunction with the original book (which I read some years ago). The original book may be a little out of date re cyber-world, but enlarges on some of the key principles of good relationship skills.

If you are a kind of submissive, obedient women, go on apply the rules and good luck. A friend of mine handed me this book and I was very enthusiastic when I started to read it and convinced that It was going to work. But the bad news is they do not work at all if you want to be happy!!.
Well, when reading the book, I got a new boyfriend, I was applying the rules word by word and everything was fine, and I say it was fine FOR HIM, because at that moment my circumstances were not the best in my career. During the relationship, I had had a hard time to find a good job that suited my skills.
Finally, I got my dreamed job and in just a few days his attitude changed completely. The fear factor that I could be independent, a self-confident woman scared him away. What I understood about this book it is not be yourself, give up your dreams and pursue only his. It is selfish and inconsiderate, how can we be happy with such advice?. I am a woman who was raised with good values, I got a professional degree, and I have worked hard all my life.The authors want to convince the readers, that our grandmothers kept their men for longer and better than we do, but the question is: were they happy? In the past, women were not allowed to go to the university, they were not allowed to file a divorce, they were not allowed to enroll in a political party, the society itself pointed at them if they had brains... So to the authors: times DO change, re-write this book according with the 21st century, and learn more about your own experience, there should have been a happy ending for you than you have in real life with respect to your own marriage. One of the husband's authors filed the divorce for the grounds of abandonment... Did she give up her career/success for him? as far as I know, she is still writing books.

Borrow a friend's copy before purchasing...... There are a few valid tips in here regarding how long to wait before responding to men..... HOWEVER, being over 50, it is not in one's best interest to play games and the men can sense it, because I have tried a lot of the suggestions.....

I read this book once and followed a lot of the advice and it worked, but didnt keep it up. I intend to re-read it and put all the tips into action, new years resolution - maybe I can then find the man of my dreams and not waste my time on men that arent right for me.

This is a very interesting book, but so very outdated! I used to apply similar practices to dating and time after time was told that the man thought i wasnt interested because i didnt pursue him and didnt open up enough.certainly in the UK women are expected to put a lot more work in - situation almost seems to have reversed from our parents generation. that is what this is - dating for the over 50s
