Awesome book! I think commandment number one is "Get a life!" Puts dating in perspective - encourages the reader to make sure dating is never the primary purpose or focus point of their lives, and explains that dating is much more likely to be satisfying if both people have something to offer.

A couple of other commandments:

Set clear boundaries
Fight fairly
Don't ignore warning signs
Choose wisely

I wish I'd read this sooner than i did, I'm glad I read it when I did! I gave this one to my younger bro
It was a pretty good an practical book on dating. I wasn't really taught how to choose a partner wisely, or what to look for in the right person. The authors took their many years of counseling and singles ministry experience, and put together this book. It has a cheesy title, but I enjoyed it anyway. Besides, one of the authors' names is Dr. Samuel Adams...who wouldn't want to read a book written by one of those who shares a name with one of the greatest beers out there? ;-)
I liked this practical guide to dating. And while most of the stuff seemed very common sense-y, it was nice to see someone give insight into why it was important. I think people struggling with the idea of setting dating parameters will also find this book helpful because it illustrates ground rules. This book will hopefully make people think about what they want out of a relationship and how they can set guidelines to for a healthy and beneficial relationship while also keeping themselves from ...more
A very useful book, I believe. I agree 100% with all of the commandments listed(although, there were bits in between that I thought could be tweaked maybe). The material is presented in a light, easy manner that makes this anything but a tedious read. And the conclusion did a great job of summing up everything and highlighting the most important parts. The only problem I really had with the book was remembering everything. Even though I accepted everything they said, it really didn't solidify in ...more

This book is very good! It is directed for high school kids (boys and girls)or college age kids. It is very direct, bold and filled with scripture to back it up. no exaggerations, yet real stories on what teenagers are going through in the world they live in today regarding waiting for sex dating.
EDIT: I am unsure how I would feel about this book at the current time. When I read it (est. 2006) I thought it was a great resource about dating and Christianity. I wrote, This book gives concrete advice rather than just saying, "Pray for your spouse."

I liked that it make some jabs at I Kissed Dating Goodbye, a huge movement in my teen years that I rebelled against, mostly with my lips.

Recommends it for: People serious about relationships for the right reasons
Recommended to Alyssa by: A friend from church
Having never dated before (I'm nearing 21), I didn't know what to expect or look for in a relationship since I was always on the look out for 1.) Is he a devoted Christian and 2.) Can I see myself with him a month, two, ten months, three years, ten years from now? I took notes and this book really helped to put what I want out of a relationship into perspective.
When I read this, I was a teen and I remember loving the language & the message. I would like to do a reread soon in order to see how I'll process it as an adult.
