Book Review: How To Find The Right One

How To Find The Right One & Make It Last is all about bringing love and romance back to dating.  A lot of the chapters definitely made me think – I have not been on a date in years and it is really not one of my priorities.  Of course, the book talks a bit about those “married to their career” and while I would not say that is me – I definitely would rather be home alone for the evening than go out on many dates to try and find the right guy.

The book has some tips on how to figure out what is is that I want in a man and a relationship – which should be helpful in screening out guys before we go on dates.  It also focuses a bit on the pros and cons of online dating.  This is something I have thought about – a lot of my friends have met their boyfriends, fiances and husbands on dating sites.  I signed up for one simply because my friend wanted me to check out a potential guy for her (and you couldn’t look at results unless you were a member).  I sign on the site from time to time but am always bombared with messages from very strange guys – one lived at home with his parents (I do too – so I can’t exactly fault him for that) but then told me he could “sneak me in the basement door” and we could get away with whatever we wanted in the basement.  Am I 13? That set off a huge red flag – this is behavior of a teenager, not a 20something.  So I have been turned off a bit by online dating due to these messages – though I guess if I really get serious about it I should use a paid site as I hear those get better results because there are less people looking for casual relationships.  (A lot of my best friends I met online so it only makes sense that Id find a potential dating relationship online as well.)

One of the things I didn’t like in the book was the mention of giving yourself a make over to attract attention.  I guess in theory a makeover will make you feel better about yourself and then you’ll give off better vibes – but I am me. If I got a makeover I would no longer be me.  And the book also mentions about being true to yourself and acting like you normally would.  I wouldn’t want to “trick” a guy in thinking I get all made up with nice hair every day – because I don’t.  I never bother with makeup and don’t do much with my hair. I don’t think a makeover would change these habits for more than a day. I think this would be deceiving.

But the rest of the book definitely gave me a lot to think about and a lot of ideas for some fun and interesting dates! If you think it might help you – pick it up. The end of each chapter has a summary of what is discussed, so it would be easy to skim that and if anything catches your eye and you think it might help you out, then you can go back and read the more detailed information supplied in the chapter.

I received a free copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.

How to Find the Right One & Make It Last! Book Summary

We all want that special someone in our lives. But isn’t it odd that one of life’s most important lessons tends to receive the least amount of focus. It’s no wonder why we have so little success attracting the love, passion, romance and fun that we all need and desire.The problem for many busy and successful people is that they do not know where to find and meet the right partners, how to approach dating, or what it takes to build and sustain a healthy, loving relationship. To address these issues, I have taken a unique approach and have written this book about real people, like you, who struggle with finding love and the right companionship. Many who have used my techniques have been able to find happy rewarding relationships.This book provides real world experiences and proven dating strategies and techniques. It’s a guide that can be used to change your life and bring you the romance and love you’ve always wanted.
