Dating the Wrong Men on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0990651401
Another day and another book hits the shelf telling singles everywhere all the things they’re ‘doing wrong’ in life and relationships. Hey, that sounds like fun! Let’s sit down for a few hours or even days to read some ramblings detailing our every flaw by people who may or may not treat their own significant others with love or respect! Because being single doesn’t feel bad enough with everyone judging them for their lack of a significant other… Why are we reading this crap?
During my twenty-plus years of Dating the Wrong Men before marrying my husband, I admit I clung to these pieces of well-marketed gimmicky opinions in a hopes that it would lead me to my Mr. Right. And I wasn’t the only one on the bandwagon. So did all of my girlfriends and what is clearly a consistent number of people as each new book comes out. I’ve read about every timeframe you should allow to text, call, ‘friend’ on social media, discuss relationship needs, sleep with, and marry. I’ve tried to change my personality to ‘think like a man,’ ‘act like a bitch,’ and attempted to use the ‘power of the kitty cat’. I sported different styles, revealed too little and revealed too much skin. I’ve let my date pay for dinner, I’ve paid for dinners and I’ve Dutch dated. I’ve even referred back to advice my mother must have received that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. And which strategy of all of these worked? NONE of them!
My years of experience, and those of every other person who jumped on these failed dating band wagons are proof that it is time to change the so-called ‘rules’ of dating and here are the most important ones we need to start with.
I felt the need to create this video because of the response from readers of Dating the Wrong Men… (And I love every one of you) It was one thing to think that I was just ‘lucky’ in my horrific years of dating experiences and that maybe the ‘rules of dating’ just didn’t work for me, but it’s another to find that the majority of people who have read my book had the same experience. If Einstein was truly right about the definition of insanity being “Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result” it’s time to take our dating strategy and the suggestions towards it into the same aspect.
Thank you to the amazing reviewers who validate my points in this video:
“…it confirmed that I was not crazy and maybe, just maybe, I was not to blame for my continued failed relationships.”
Natalie Made It
“It was scary how much I could relate to all this… This is pretty much my new bible. I have more confidence in myself and who I am as a woman since reading this book.”
From Samantha S. from A Smile Makes Everyone Happy
‘… this book entirely shifted my perspective, and is anything but a list of cliche’ eye-roll-worthy advice..”
