Dating for Dummies Reviews
I gave it three stars because I could never give any book in the "For Dummies" series more than three stars. By far this is my favorite of the crop of dating books I've been reading lately, because it's the most worthless. Just be yourself, be more confident and a host of things that I can assure you have no basis in the kind of dating that REAL people actually do. I don't recall "working on my inner self" prior to meeting my partner. I did however, join a gym, drop like 5 or so dress sizes and snag a really hot guy. I don't think I'm a nicer, thoughtful, or even more confident person. But I wear a single digit size, and really, that's the kind of advice 99% of dating books should be dishing. We live in a sketchy post-feminist world and it's about time our dating guides actually reflected that.Still, if you're feeling shitty about your lack of dates this will probably lift your spirits making the whole partner attraction racket seem less out of your control.God, I am such a bitch even in 7 jeans. So disappointing!
Look, honestly, I have no idea how I ended up with this book. I think I was going through an, 'it's okay to admit I want a relationship' phase and thought taking advice from a book would be empowering. I read a few chapters, rolled my eyes excessively and generally felt ridiculous, and decided to donate it.I think, if you feel like you need a book to tell you what to do, you're probably overthinking things. It might give some helpful ideas on etiquette but in the end you just need to be true to yourself.
I am dipping into this book again now after several years of not needing it. I didn't check into whatever complaints other readers must have to keep it from being a 5-star experience for everybody, but this book seems to me a remarkably cogent and comforting companion through the world of dating or not. I have reread relevant sections several times during my adult life, enough so that I have internalized some of the author's recommendations. The chapter on "Breaking Up" is especially valuable. Thanks, Dr. Joy!
The first two books of the "For Dummies" series I read were pretty cool and funny, so I decided to read as many books of the series as possible. This one, though, is a waste of time. Full of stereotypes and trying to be funny when it definitely isn't, makes it even more pathetic. The chapters about safety rules are ok I guess but that's all.
This book is very useful with more thousand ideas for every situation. Ez egy nagyon hasznos könyv több ezer hasznos ötlettel mindenféle helyzetekre.
This is more of a reference book for me. Every once a while, I'll flip through the chapters and read a few of the things that seem applicable at the time. Although the book was written in 1997 many of the principles and endure.
I think the most interesting part of this book was the theory that we're always moving forward. Meaning if you date someone and break up with them you will move on to other, better, relationships. Because you will know that things can be AT LEAST that good again.
