Educating women about men and themselves
on 4 February 2018
Advised to read it after a 5 year relationship ended.. I just did not understand why, I found out that I had missed all the warning signs and excuses of fading interest on his behalf. With the blaming me scenario.
Then I met a man and got the 'you can visit me whenever.you want to'. So i went to visit him and he asked 'why i didn't call first', followed by 'I'll call soon i feel better. I am just getting over the flue'. I got busy and before i realised it was two weeks later and no call. So I re-read the book especially the chapter dealing with these excuses, for self reassurance that my understanding of the situation was correct. It was, because 2 months later still no call. I did not wait or contact him. Looser. Yes the book covers it all from the male behaviour to the female perspective of it.all.
It is brilliant and has alerted me to all the phoney excuses, warning signals men give off and when they are just not that into you. It is an easy read and i just had to read it in one go and keep dipping into it until i could recall the content out. fairly well. It has left me more confident and less accepting of lame excuses and more importantly I have learnt how to recognise them.
All of this from a short well written book primarily about how men view life/women and the excuses they make rather than be open and honest, leaving a woman having to second guess what they really meant and wanted from them.
I feel that it in some small way it empowers women by giving them a better understanding of men, enabling them to recognise a bad situation they may be in - even if it is not accepted and then to make decisions about their life..
