If you've never read The Rules, and I wouldn't blame you for giving it a miss, you should know it attempts to dictate to women how to act with men so that they end up with what they want - presumably a husband and a Happily Ever After. In that sense, The Rules for Online Dating is much the same, just updated for the 21st century. Lessons in how to write your online personal ad and how to have the right attitude abound, mixed in with the tried-and-true advice. Which strongly resembles the advice ...more

Interesting to read. Was able to pull some useful things out of it, but not as good of a book as Mars and Venus on a Date by John Gray.

Ignore the bad reviews, this book from what I heard is amazing, helped tons of women get the men they wanted yes it talks about this book being sexist but no, it's being honest, brutally honest, if your ready for a relationship and want to do anything to get that perfect relationship you have envisioned then read this, otherwise don't read it at all.

It is disturbing how many women have to pretend to have a self ...more
