Some parts of this book were good, others... not so much. I think my main complaint about this book is that the authors change the meaning of words to fit their purpose. The way they define "erotic" is not the same way I would define erotic; I don't know how they define "flirting," but it must be different, based on some of the things they said; and so on.

The other complaint I had is too much theory, not enough application. Theory is all well and good, and I do understand the need to change one's heart rather than just one's actions, but seriously. And then when they do tell you some practical stuff, either a)none of it applies to me (hi- not dating), or b)it is really, really dumb. ("Exercise more"-- No way, I've *never* heard that one.)

But there were a few good points among the dross. There was a section that I need to reread about confessing, and a couple of good quotes that I wrote down.
