There’s a reason the media has dubbed matchmaker Rachel Greenwald as “The Wife Maker.” Yes, she’s responsible for over 750 marriages, but more importantly, she has solved perhaps the biggest dating mystery of all time: when you finally meet Mr. Right (or even Mr. Potential), what really compels him to call back (or not) after a date?

Armed with her Harvard MBA, Rachel emba...more

This book will pretty much make you fully realize that books like these work on crippling women to "catch a man". It also painted men as high strung, fickle idiots who have a whole generation of women pandering to their whims. While I do agree with Mrs. Greenwald's premise of having a third party inquire about what went right / wrong on a date to gain closure, I really don't accept a lot of the answers given. A woman can be powerful, but not too powerful? Men want women who just "happen" to have...more
Ugh! Took awhile to read this. There are some valid points and some good suggestions but it also sounded like there was a lot of game playing, some really silly, opinionated men and people who for whatever reason just weren't meant to connect. Read it if you must but don't expect to walk away with alot of information.
Oh, how I hate this genre and this type of book. However, I'm in that stage of life where everyone feels compelled to lend me their dating self-help books. Ugh. So I read them knowing I'm certainly not too good for professional advice and certainly not exempt from dating problems. But I am certainly too self-respecting to advertise that I'm reading it. I did laugh a few times, and I will admit it is as practical approach as could be out there to narrowing down reasons you're not asked a second t...more
She's telling it like it is in the 21st century dating world. Can't fault her for that. Of course, she's a professional dating coach/matchmaker so she has her "make or break" 1st dating to-do's and don'ts'. I recognize traits in myself within the 16+ negative stereotypes men (mis)perceive in women that keep him from asking for a second. All women would. If she (and the men she interviewed) makes it sound like men are picky, it's because they are. They can afford to be--as of 2008, I think, there...more
Take what you want from this and leave the rest....

More or less all common sense stuff.

Interesting feedback from mostly men regarding dating; what they liked and why they didn't continue dating a woman they were attracted to and maybe even liked. Some of the reasons given could have been corrected with communication, but the men never did this. Some of the things that men didn't like were quirks that someone else may find cute. Some men were just jerks, but this was a minority.

There's also a chapter on the women's reasons they didn't continue dating men. Reasons like hygiene, too...more

As a recently separated woman looking to start dating again, this was an interesting account of what to do and not to do when on a first date . Lots of fun! I'm keeping it close to review some key parts once in a while :)
Ellen Allerton
Interesting because of her research but it lacked depth.
There were some interesting points to consider but it was a lot of material that wasn't really useful to me. I found it encouraging to hear that mostly men want a 'nice' person for long-term relationships, which maybe sounds obvious but nevertheless is good to remember. Not exactly a must-read, but there were some valid points to consider about stereotypes during the first date, and how to prevent them from forming.

Despite the cheesy title and lots of pink on the cover, this was actually a great (and informative!) read! I recommend it to all the ladies. (And pray no one ever finds out I read it! :P )
Karolina Patino
This book is more appropriate for women who are having trouble dating and want to improve.
I got a few chuckles but no real insights.
Interesting...worth the read
