A must read for anyone that's in dating mode...

...simple to follow instructions to getting into a better dating situation. He gives a great picture and diagnosis of why many people don't have success with dating, and a few good strategies for developing the skill.

I did not give it five stars because:
- it seems like most of the book is written for women. Men need help too, and in many cases more than women
- the advice given to men is a bit simplistic. Go out and talk to more women. Really? It really is that simple bit the mental blocks need to be addressed before action takes place.

This is not an unabriged book

The book has good ideas. But please be aware that this is definitely not an unabridged book. It's about the same length as the abridged version. It's no where near 4 hours long.

changed my life

This book changed my life. As a Christian girl I was under the impression that dating was something totally different. If I had known this 5 years ago. I would be a different person today.

Self Help Addict

I love the way that Cloud and Townsend apply practical advice and observational data to their books. I purchased this after reading Boundaries and wanted to hear what they had to say about dating, I was hoping it would touch on keeping things going in marriage- it did not. Overall good book, good reading performance.

Everyone should read this book

If everyone read and followed this book people would be happier and better off, especially in regards to dating and finding lasting love. I wish I had read this book before I started dating--it probably would have saved me from making a lot of mistakes.

Good, Sensible Advice ... just wish that the Age References would expand beyond the 30 Something

Would love to see another book that addresses to a wider ‘age’ audiences. There are more ‘singles’ in their 40’s, 50’s and beyond today.

Good listen overal. Thanks!

Wish I had this in my 20’s

This book is an excellent take on how to treat dating! I really wish it had been around or in my hands when I was in college! Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in long-term and fulfilling relationships!

insightful and clear advice on dating

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend this book highly. I think it provides clear, realistic advice. Empowering advice. As you go throught it, the author provides the biblical basis for the advice. As a Christian I value this. I don't think, though, that it will get in the way of any non Christian enjoying, understanding and benefitting from the advice (speaking as someone who was a non Christian for a large part of my life).

So eye opening

This book was excellent. I found myself in so many of the stories told and I’ve been motivated to stop sitting around waiting for the one to show up. So good!!!

Revolutionary

This book has been a paradigm shift for my views on dating and relationships. It has completely changed the way I approach my love life. The many lasting friendships I made with members of the opposite sex, as a result of following the program outlined in this book, has been a phenomenal and enriching experience. The lessons and insights to be found in this book are invaluable, and it is a shame that many people will enter into doomed relationships merely due to never having the chance to learn these valuable insights.
