Be Happy with Yourself First!,
This review is from: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Dating (Paperback)
Written for early 20s to early 30s without a great deal of dating experience, Judy Kuriansky covers everything from opening lines to closing ones, and everything in between. I enjoyed the book's positive tone. Although the book touches on feelings and emotions that fuel courting relationships, it doesn't delve deeply into them. For example; in Appendix "C" Kuriansky asks dating questions. One focuses on how many dates you need to have before knowing someone is "it!" Kuriansky recommends at least 6 dates. Long term relationships are more complex. Granted, some people seem to know almost immediately, however long-term relationships are usually much more complex.
Kuriansky argues that the key to successful dating is to be happy with yourself. I agree. Her book reflects this positive philosophy. She doesn't judge lifestyles and clearly recognizes differences within individuals (a strong point of the book!) carefully reviewing both the male and female perspective. Overall, a good book on dating for the intended age group and experience level!
