Date Like a Woman by Kai Nicole, (Flaimahmy Press 2017)
This is the dating book Millennial women have been waiting for. It offers a fresh non-sexist perspective on dating and gives women the strategies they need for dating success. This book will revolutionize dating for women everywhere.
A great no nonsense guide to navigating the dating scene. It isn't a 'how to' get dates it is a guide on what to do once you are dating. It is full of sensible and thought provoking ideas about what to do and not do. Most of these guides are common sense such as don't write a shopping list for men, the perfect man doesn't exist, give the single men around you a chance. Listen. Be open. Let the man ask you out. Don't chase after men. Pay attention to the men who pay attention to you. Be happy in yourself. A miserable single person is still going to be miserable in a relationship. Men don't complete your life.
Of course there are lots more wise words explained in more detail in the book.
I liked that the author tells me very early on in the book that this is not a guide to finding a husband it is a dating only guide. The book is a very quick read, quite humorous and down to earth. I can imagine sitting down with my girl friends and having them give me the exact same advice. It just makes sense, is very realistic and non-judgemental. The information is presented in a very straight forward manner. The author's main points are in short paragraphs, sometimes in bold writing and crystal clear. There is no clouding the issue with repetitive waffle simply to fill pages and increase the word count.
I found the advice about how to spot the red flags when it comes to men to be very interesting and I could actually see some of these red flags in the men I've dated or refused to date in the past.
There isn't actually anything brand new in the advice given but it is presented in such a way as to reaffirm my own feelings and attitude towards dating.
This is a book I will dip into again and again.
