This is a funny book about dating from a girl's perspective. I am getting a kick out of reading it.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun read and I think that she has a lot of good points about girls learning to be confident enough to go out there and flirt wih boys. How else are you going to meet true love if you don't make yourself available? This book was very cleverly written and she had a lot of helpful advice on how to deal with different kinds of me, which she compares to birds.

I absolutely loved this book. It is so full of wisdome and u just have to pay a little bit of attention and get ready to change the way you see men. I can't wait to test what I read and something tells me I will be going back to it from times to times until I find The One!

More for people looking to have fun, not a real relationship (which was what I was looking for back in 2008). The chapter on getting married was really weak, as the author was not married. The book had some funny, witty moments, but wasn't the right dating guide for me.
Drunkenly staggers all over the line between parody and advice. It's generally bad when you can't tell if something's supposed to be humorous.

I think there was probably some good stuff in here but it was obscured by all the painful bird analogies.

Awesome book. Such a fun read, makes dating fun and challenging. It worked for me. Met my husband 6 months later after reading this book. A big help in dating, relationship and communicating. Got married to my 'Mr right for me' within 2 years.
This was a cute read. Very witty and funny.

My friend told me that women treat this seriously. Maybe I am a bird - I will know which one.
