Because after so long of being reminded of the same things over and over again, I started thinking this: And there's really only so many times you can remind me to stop looking so awful and put on some make up because if you look good you'll feel good without me eventually thinking this: This is when they start playing into unrealistic beauty standards to remind you how your job is supposed to sit there and look pretty so that a man can "chase" you. It will make them shit their Batman pull-ups and then he won't feel like a big boy anymore! Like you're playing African safari, you pretty little prey you! No guy is told to just be pretty and wait for a girl to ask them out! If a guy gets that offended about you asking him out, you just dodged a very insecure whiny bullet.

A humourous look at the pleasures and pitfalls of dating, Behrendt provides his insights from the male point of view, and this is nicely balanced by input from wife and co-author, Amiira Ruotola-Behrendt. Straight to the point, no sugar coating it tools not tricks or head games.
Everything this book tells you rings true, we have all lost the art of actual dating - along with the art of actual communication (my opinion).
The book is funny, entertaining, informative and just plain outstanding!Once again as in "He's Just Not That Into You," very straightforward, humorous, and realistic advice that is basically the common sense that [some:] women have trouble telling ourselves.
