This book dissects the “rules” of dating that I’m sure you’ve heard before – don’t sleep with him on the first date, men should always pay for dates, wait 3 days to call even if you’re interested, etc. No one really knows where they originated from but they have somehow developed themselves into rules that some people actually try to follow. It’s Okay To Sleep With Him On The First Date focuses on each of these rules and has both a male AND female perspective in the book. There are also quotes from others at the end of each topic with their thoughts on the rules.
The book has a lot of great tips on ideas for first dates, conversation topics, etc. So if you’ve been striking out on dates lately, check it out and see if maybe you need to revamp your idea of “the rules”. There is of course my favorite – men and women can not be friends without one of them being in to the other…
The book was definitely an interesting read and I came away from it deciding there really is no set of rules for dating. Just do what seems to be the right thing for you and your relationship and hope it works out in the end!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Every Time You Go On a Date, you’re faced with 347 “rules” on how to act, what to say, when to call him, when to kiss him, and how to play “the game.”
These rules do more than just insult your intelligence: they spread anxiety, breed insecurity, make us all more cynical and, worse, when you follow the rules you might overlook your match.
In this empowering he said/she said guide, relationship experts Andrea Syrtash and Jeff Wilser help us take off the rules-colored glasses. The truth is men don’t care if you sleep with them on the first date. (If they like you, they’ll want to see you again.) How to find success in love? Don’t trust the rules; trust yourself
