Real Men Don't Text scored points with me for many reasons. The first was that it is based on life experience. It's not some guy in his fifties who has never married and doesn't know what he is talking about or a 60 yr old cat lady who decided it might make a good book. It's based on their actual lives, what worked for them, what didn't, and what they've learned along the way.
Second, is that it truly is a Christian book. I've had books that are labeled as "Religious" or "Christian" because they have the word God in it once or twice. This book is 100% God based on what he wants in our lives with our relationships.
Third, it is just really good advice. It doesn't just state what people do wrong in their relationship/dating lives it also tells you how to handle the situation in a God-fearing way and how to not do it again.
Finally fourth. This book was really brought to it's full potential when Ruthie and Michael decided to write it together. Ruthie could have written it on her own and I'm sure it would still be good.However having a male and female perspective not only makes it accessible for both genders it makes it so the women don't feel they do everything wrong but men have faults too.
This book has valuable information on online dating, staying pure in a relationship, texting, what boundaries to go by, as well as red flags to watch for. Very useful for men and women!
I was eager to read Real Men Don't Text because I am new to the dating scene and I found it to be very informative. I found the book to be filled with practical advice from a Christian viewpoint and it covered all the important topics such as how you view your body, remaining pure in a relationship, how to find the right man, and what red flags to look for when on a date as well as topics related to online dating. Of all the things in this book, I really liked the summaries at the end of each chapter because they really highlighted the important points of each chapter. This is a must read for all woman and teen girls who are either in a relationship or are new to the dating scene.
In our modern world, text messages seem to have replaced phone calls and love letters. The authors, a husband and wife team, wrote this book to tell about the pitfalls of "virtual dating" and how you can avoid them.
I thought the book was okay, and the authors made some good points about not having a relationship based on texts only. The authors' relationship is mentioned, along with their history of dating. Every chapter ends with a summary of important points. I thought before reading it that the book was written to both men and women, but it seems to be written only to women.
This book would be good for both young men and young women to read before getting involved in anyÂ serious dating to try and find their future mate. Â It goes into in-depth details why couples should not Â text as their way of communicating.
