I have been having a great time with online dating as per my previous post, Is Romance only in Books? Where have all the good men gone? so I thought I would do a book review on a book that I read called Men Don’t Love Women Like You: The Brutal Truth about Dating, Relationships, and How to Go from Placeholder to Game Changer by G.L. Lambert.
Here is a partial summary of the book taken from Amazon.com, if this does not grab your attention…….
Men Don t Love Women Like You, is a brutally honest manual that will transform you from typical to priceless. The secrets in this book will guide you step by step as you learn what men think, how to counter their Bullsh*t, and the exact ways to turn the table in your favor. No matter who the man is, how young, old, rich, or popular he may be, this book will show you how to attain power over him. From the first meeting to the first date. From a new relationship hitting its first bump to an old relationship on its last legs. You will learn to dominate men in ways you never dreamed of. You will become what you were always meant to be A Goddess in the flesh.
Now, this book appealed to me because I am a straight forward, tell it like it is, not going to sugar coat it kind of girl. So this book was right up my alley according to the summary of the book on Amazon. Now mind you, I am not young so I have been to the circus and have seen the show so I was not expecting this book to teach me anything I did not already know, but was I WRONG!!!
The book is basically divided into two sections: the first being get your own sh!t straight before dating. Be honest with yourself and your issues, stop blaming your problems on your parents, your friends, the mailman, etc, really work through your past, comes to terms and move on empowered. Now, I am a true believer in this process and I have done the work on myself but it was nice to have a reminder and the opportunity to touch base again. This section is very helpful in how to go through that process.
The second section of the book is where the party gets started and explains how to be a “Goddess in the flesh”, how to date in “Sparta”, with the benefit of a man’s point of view, which I found very beneficial. You learn how specifically the first and second dates should go, how to be a game changer and to always put yourself before any man.
Overall, the book provides great insight to the male mind during the dating process, how to date smart and to get what you really want in a relationship long term. This book would be a great read at any age, especially if you are wanting a long term relationship. I also recommend reading this book slowly and reading it more than once. It is worth it! For the love, please don’t ever sleep with a man on the first date!!!
I purchased this book from Amazon and it can be found here.
P.S. Wish my luck on my first date tonight using what I learned in this book!! Update to follow!!!!
Until Next Time!!!
