After getting constant messages and a few comments about this review (EVEN THOUGH I didn't mark anything as read or I didn't unfairly rate anything without even opening the book ((*SIGHSIGHSIGH**)).) It's on its way into my hands as a to-request-from-the-public-library book.

So now I can satisfy the unsatisfied with a review with a rating and read-mark.

This book was a bit funny and frightening. What scares me is that people are out there actually following this advice! :-o I read it out of curiousity, I mean the title is intriguing. But it's full of manipulative advice on how to make someone "think" you like them and to get them to "feel" like they are in love with you.

What I came away with is a knowledge of what to be aware of the next time I go out with someone. If they start going through the steps outlined in this book - RUN!!

Okay, I would like to say that I read it because the deep insight in the human behaviour it gives me, and although that is also true, I mostly read it because I'm a lonely sap who's worthless with love. I bought it more than 1 1/2 years ago when I was in England, but never got around to reading it because I thought the font was too annoying, but as I said, I'm tired of being the constant single, so I sought advice, and advice I got.

Not only does it bring funny anecdotes, it also helps you to und

This is funny as hell!
Humurous reading aside, it has some good prespective on social dynamics wich is what's really what got me into reading this.
But it can either turn you into a manipulative beast, or really give you a good third person prespective on what you're doing and perhaps really lead you when the time comes.

As for the manipulative part. No one will become that because of a book. You either already were, or came to be out of your own will. Each takes what each wants from the resources

I am currently 80% through this book and it is killing me to go further and had to share my thoughts on this book. Simply, it is terrible and bad advice if you are reading this for the purpose of applying it to find a lover or spouse.

The pros to this book is that there is a lot of research that has been put into citing studies and giving sources. That is about the only pro. The cons would be that I wouldn't really trust the validity of some of the studies mentioned in this book. An example of t

If you are looking for a relationship book that gives you the traditional, "find someone who appreciates you for you," or "you'll meet the right person, just be yourself," advice, look some place else. This is the worldly, dog-eat-dog, guide to relationships. There are no mentions of inner beauty in this book. An appropriate title might have been, "The Wall Street Guide to Relationships." So, I thought it was good, concrete advice if you are looking to hook up with lots of attractive people thro ...more

I doubt I learned anything really new from this book, although it offers a few helpful tidbits here and there. It also offers advice which may or may not be good in helping to get a lover and/or find a mate. This book is supposedly based on actual scientific evidence, but that is only a part of it. This is neither a scholarly nor a popular review of the literature on the subject of mating dances. Lowndes presents a variety of techniques, occasionally backed up by studies, on how to find that spe ...more

So I bought this book at the old age of 22 after a heart wrenching no one will ever love me again break-up. (I thought I was getting way to old and had to take desperate measures!) I didn't read the whole book and I am not sure even how far I got, but it was a bunch of crap from what I remember. (With a title like that though, what kind of success rate could we really get, ANYONE!! I doubt it) From what I remember it told you to lie. To pretend to be totally into the things that the other is int ...more

I can't decide if this book is really clever or really offensive. I love that a lot of actual research studies were consulted to come up with the advice (although I have no idea as to the credibility of those studies), but some of the sexually-oriented advice was just weird. Agreeing to think about sexing other women to get your man on side, knowing you have no intention of doing so and probably won't be asked to follow through? Um. This was treated as far less weird than your man potentially wa ...more

My first English Book to finish الحمد لله.
It was okay I guess, it contains many advice, shows you the difference between male and female perception of things. Sometimes I thought the book was ironic specially when it covered areas like how to make someone rich fall in love with you, also I felt as if deception was included, how to deceive someone to get him to love you or think as if he is love with you already -Guess I didn't like that much - I mean if someone doesn't like me the way I am , the
the book is definitely wonderful and deserves a closer and a more analytical reading to fully grasp its lessons even though not all of them are applicable in my community. I must say that towards the ending of the book I surely blushed a lot...

It's a goodread nonetheless. It might not be an appropriate read for everyone.

This book may have some points or thoughts to consider, but love is never meant to be a bunch of techniques to study and practice!
If you are searching for a book that teaches u have how to date, this book is what u need. so it's better to name it "how to get a date with everyone"

One of the best flirting/relationship books I have read. It tells you what to do and then it will tell you the science behind it.
Nov 15, 2014 Laura rated it it was ok
It was great to read a scientific research book that wasn't dry and boring and bogged down with terms that most people don't understand.
The flip side is it started out fairly interesting then fell into what seems to me a whole bunch of game playing trying to land your 'Quarry' as the people you are trying to snare are called. It seemed like most of the book was spent trying to manipulate your 'Quarry' into falling in love with you and not being your true self.
It was summed up in the last few sen

If it was only as easy as it sounded! Seductively licking your lips, making eye contact from across the room, telling someone how wonderful they are, all the non-verbal cues...odds are that they are not going to make someone fall in love with you. It might land you in bed with someone but love, probably not. I think we spend so much time as a society thinking that there is a certain way to act to get love and if we aren't getting love, we must not be doing it right. I'd really like to buy a book ...more

Omg, I love this book. Nevermind I've been in a boring monog relationship with an adorably foxy nerdy economist for a good chunk of time, I love this book. I use all the tricks and tips and get lots of free stuff, and while I'm cute, I'm not like cute enough to never pay for cupcakes/coffee at Barnes & Noble. this book bottom lines it for you so well, you feel kind of stupid for reading it. Still, Most of it is about eye contact that makes the person you're eyeing feel like a gazelle about t ...more

It is a decent read, but for the most part it is common sense that we just need to be reminded of and/or receive a refresher course on what we need to do in order to attracted better to ourselves.

Now this is a funny one. I laughed, and I think the walls were annoyed at me giving guffaws.
I enjoyed the peace, yet the intensity it brought to me.
Life is true, but there are many fake ideologies. However, there were slow moments in this book, but I really liked the theory about the eyes.

There are 4 types of eyes;
1. Intense Gaze
2. Bedroom Eyes
3. Sticky Eyes
4. Visual Voyage

I enjoyed every bit of that theory, and Im using it wisely. (winks)

Thankfully, Im already trapped in it by myself.

This author is genius! Nearly everything she talks about in this self-help book she nails right on the head. I agreed with about 90 percent of her advice... mostly because we have the same views on relationships. She gives some great tips that I will be using in the future. I had to smile to myself when reading certain parts of this book because she was so dead on. I guess I would have to say that the sex part of the book was the only thing I was iffy on. Other than that, I would definitely read ...more

Well it gives us some facts, some things that we all knew or subconsciously know them, but weren't that much of AWARE that those things were techniques to rely on, or to actually benefit from !
so we needed someone to sum it all up & give us the recipe & that what this book did !
BUT i think it's not entirely useful for us as eastern, we have different culture & different way of dealing with that kind of relationships!
but we can always take what suits us & leave out all the rest!

outdated. Very obviously from the last century.
Yes. I bought this book. I really did. I was curious and bored, so I bought it. It was ok, quite funny, though I'm pretty sure, it's not that easy to "make someone fall in love with you" and that it does not only involve chemistry or the fact that you will keep licking your lip, make intense eye contact, and telling them how wonderful they are.
It might help you picking up guys, or get picked up it depends on how you see things, but love? I don't think so.

Shelves: dating
This book is not so much about making someone fall in love with you as it is a toolbox for starting, building and maintaining relationships with potential love interests. It's the only book I've read on dating that gives concrete steps about how to interact with the opposite sex, as well as sound advice about how to find what the author calls "your matched opposite." The writing is clear and moves along at a pleasant conversational pace.
