Right, too, and then when you think you might have found him, everything MUST change! You want to KEEP him, not drive him away, or sound like you are an easy catch. Some of the old-fashioned ways still ring true to today, but there are special ways of doing it, which is what this book teaches us.
A lot of people today tend to be very public about their lives on the social media sites, and this is not always a good thing.
They give a lot about your life away. There is a lot to say for getting to know a person one on one instead of reading about them on the computer these authors tell and teach us. It seems today it's expected you will jump and reply to text messages, or posts immediately.
This makes having a little time to yourself non-existent.
It also takes away 'the chase' while dating. Women, you want to control the dating situation, and find a keeper, or Mr. Right, and there is a certain way of doing this, which is what these authors have mastered!
Now they are here to teach you how to do it. I have to say this book surely opened my eyes to the dating world today, and it should open the eyes of the women who are dating today as well. Hopefully it will help your children who are going to be dating soon, too. This is just as great a book for them, too. I never gave the information in this book ANY thought prior to reading it. I never thought about the repercussions my children could suffer from while trying to date.

The authors of this book teach you how to do it, and they give great examples by having real women with real issues submit questions to them, and the authors answer their questions and give more scenarios. ALL you mothers out there, if you have daughters out there who are old enough to be dating, you are a dinosaur just like me! Most of us did not grow up with computers, tablets, or cell phones, and we really do not know what it is like to date today.
