I think that this book wasn't really one that I needed to read to realize I'm worth a good relationship. I knew that quite well already. But it was aI think that this book wasn't really one that I needed to read to realize I'm worth a good relationship. I knew that quite well already. But it was a good reminder how one should never lie to herself when relationships are in question. It also made me bit sad because it reminded me again how obsessive some women are about having a relationship. I think many would be much happier if instead of concentrating all their energy to trying to find the right man (or any man that is willing to date and possibly marry them) they would use at least half of that energy trying to enjoy their life as it is and finding happiness in it. An I'd guess that a woman who is enjoying her life and herself would seem much more atractive to men trying to find the one person to love. And I think that this book talked about that too, if not lot but little anyhow.
To bit criticize the book, I felt that it repeated the same things too much time to time. Maybe the writers thought it was needed but I found it bit irritating. I also felt that the book was too American to my Scandinavian taste. The dating culture really isn't similar here north that in (lets say) New York. At least in my circles many couples have never really dated before getting together...
And being a Sex and the City -fan this book really reminded me about the great series.
I'll ad here my few favorite guidelines: (I liked the short, slogan-like ones most.) 47 When you like someone, they don't just slip your mind. 81 Better than nothing is not good enough for you! 137 Bad boys are actually bad. 162 He's just not that in to you if he's breaking up with you. "I don't want to go out with you" means just that. 196 No answer is your answer. 240 You already have one asshole. You don't need another. (This one did make me laugh out loud and it is SO true!)
