Product Description

Review

Packed with essential and painful reminders of what not to do! (Star Magazine)

It's good advice, written in the vein of now-famous post-Rules guides Why Men Love Bitches and He's Just Not That Into You; each is predicated on creating an epiphany moment in women, when they suddenly understand what it is men want or need from them. Plenty of us have been waiting to find that out for years.

The New Rules might not explain the great mystery, but they offer certain coping strategies in the meantime.

(Independent.ie)

Their dictates are famous: never approach a man, let him come to you never suggest a date; don't be the one to initiate or perpetuate conversation or contact; and never, ever agree to a date that is less than 24 hours away (Sunshine Coast Daily)

The Rules returns with updated dating advice for ladies of the digital age (Cosmopolitan)

There's no denying that in some respects they hit the nail on head. The New Rules . . . makes a good case for retaining an air of mystery despite the trend to do the opposite (Pride)

Book Description

The Rules Girls are back with the dating bible for the modern, digital age.

Ok, so I heard amazing things about this book and recently read a book that is similar and very empowering for women. However as I began reading it not only does it drone on and on for pages repeating the same information before getting to the point, I found this book was not suitable for women NOT of a Caucasian background. Under the chapter "looking like a CUAO" these women are telling me (in a nut shell) men love blondes, so straighten your hair, dye it blonde and then it even suggests green or blue coloured contacts!!!! Match it with "a skirt above knee length" and "a top that shows cleavage" and you have . . . well a stripper! I read this book to feel empowered and better about myself, turns out that's not what their selling.

Not all women are blonde with blue eyes and straight hair, that does't mean we are not beautiful. I believe that yes women should make an effort to accentuate their assets but don't change who you are. Wear make up, dress to impress but don't loose yourself in what some people perceive as "CUAO" . . . for those of you who don't fit the description of this book please read "Act like a lady, think like a man by steve harvey" because it applies to all women not matter what you look like!

I did feel that the original rules needed updating, I remember being single when texting and emailing was big and think I did this rule rather well, I've now been married 7 years. I think the general guidelines about facebook, tweeting and texting is very good but my main criticism about this book is how they say men only like women with long blonde, straight hair and must wear hooped earrings and a large gold watch. I am a short haired brunette and managed to find love just like many others, and never wished to wear hooped earrings and large gold watches. Please!!!! There is someone out there for everyone and you just have to be the best you can and dress in a way that flatters your individual shape and size, after all, wouldn't it be boring if we were the same and on an online dating profile men would have to wade through thousands of long haired blondes who all looked similar! Sorry but I can only give this book 3 stars because of this particular chapter, otherwise there are some very good pointers in it.

Everything they say not to do - I was doing! Still trying to adjust and change my behaviour, but I'm already feeling better about myself. A must-read for all those girls who find themselves checking their phones to see if "he" has messaged back yet or wondering why he's not called the day after "the night before".

I really enjoyed this book and have recommended it to a few friends, who are also enjoying not only reading it, but the effects that it has had on thier personal lives. This is not a do everything book, do use your initiative, beliefs and common sense when applying the rules. For the most part I think it teaches self respect, the whole point of the book seems to be a guide on how having your own life is good and when you meet that special someone they need to share that life, not you drop everything to be with them. However, it is meant to be a guide on finding a person and as it says in the book, if you aren't ready to do that, don't.

This book is a gosh darn tragedy.

This book teaches women to be invisible, simple-minded and bland. It suggests that any man looking for a relationship wants a quiet homemaker with good looks and no brain. In short, it's offensive towards both sexes.
It goes on to actually blame outspoken, independent women for relationship dissolution, stating that, if they had 'followed the rules', they'd be home and dry. They'll more likely be nursing their fifth baby, chasing a toddler around the house and cooking for 7 whilst waiting for her knight in shining armour to come home from the office, only to see the fat slob stumble through the door, drunk, and promptly collapse into bed without so much as a sidewards glance to his dearly beloved.

This book demands that women compromise their own hopes and dreams, their own, good selves and their values to accommodate a man. It suggests that you hide your true nature in order to ensnare a man, and a stupid one at that.

Forgive me, but aren't women striving for equality these days?
This level of trash only serves to feed the unrealistic, fairytale dreams of women who don't realise they're better than this.

I didn't like this book. I found it too rigid. I don't think that these rules will necessarily lead to a happy love life. There are so many variables in life, nothing is simply black or white. This book treats dating as some sort of mathematical equation....if you are 30 years old you must wait 4 hours to reply to a text.....? Hmmm I think this is a strange way to approach dating. I would instead recommended reading "He's Just Not That Into You" and "It's Just a F*#king Date" both by Greg Behrendt. These books aren't about playing games, they're about finding and maintaining your self respect.

Not as good as the original . It has been updated for a more modern way of living but somethings now contradict with the older method. There is key information and the main ingredients still apply however I did not feel that I gained much. It's very much focused on college and social media addicts. The journey has taught me to love yourself and allow others to treat you with love and respect. Do not settle. I also learnt that so many rules are not natural and sometimes it's good to use your own initiative dealing with different men. We are not all going to meet men in the ideal situation as life is not that straight forward. I have mixed emotions but there are some women who really need this book because they don't have any rules and give too much too soon. It's good that such book exists but it is important to take some information and leave the rest in order to set your own limits for your individual situation.
