This is a book written by someone who really knows!,
This review is from: Smart Dating: How to Find Your Man (Paperback)
I was really impressed by this book. Mary Balfour, who happens to be someone who fixed my now husband up with dates about 25 years ago, really knows her stuff. She has so many great nuggets of advice for those seeking love and romance but also some rather scary information from men about what they DON"T like in a date such as no short cropped hair! No green or blue eyeshadow! The men - and there must be hundreds, if not thousands - interviewed by Mary and her colleagues at Drawing Down the Moon, seem to be so conventional in so many ways. looking for someone interesting and kind (for that read HOT to look at, let's be really honest here) but not too interesting or high powered that they are scared stiff.
Personally, the whole 'flirt' thing makes me feel sick. I am not interested in men who want me to twist my hair, or bat my eyelids. Mary is very hot on flirting and looking good and all that stuff which sticks in the throat of a feminist like myself. However, if you are really looking for a mate, you need to read this book, just to get the full picture of how to improve your chances.
