Drawing on more than ten years' experience coaching singles on dating, Cloud
attempts to help readers overcome either stale or unfruitful dating. He
encourages singles to think about dating not only as a way to find a mate but
also as a means to learn, grow, and experience other people. Activities like
keeping a journal and reaching a quota of meeting potential dates per week
are suggested, as are honest self-reflection and behavior. Cloud also
challenges unrealistic fantasies such as waiting for God to provide the
perfect person and hoping that the relationship will solve life's problems.
Though written from a Christian perspective, this book does not proselytize,
and the advice is sound. However, it will be more readily picked up in
Christian communities, for which it is recommended. Copyright 2005 Reed
