Publisher's Description

Late-night texts. Mixed signals. Dead-end relationships.
This doesn’t have to be your love life.


Welcome to dating in the digital world—where phone conversations followed by dinner and a movie have been replaced by last-minute texts, ambiguous relationships, and vague group hangouts.

While technology makes it faster and easier to connect than ever before, it has also created confusion . . . And heartbreak.

Ruthie and Michael Dean have heard the same story from thousands of women: the disappearing men, the cryptic messages, the disappointing relationships, and the false intimacy of on-screen connection.

In a no-holds-barred narrative style, the husband-and-wife team chronicles their dating mishaps, hilarious attempts to find love, and many mistakes—helping women understand just what men are thinking and how to attract Mr. Right.

Real Men Don’t Text offers game-changing perspectives, bringing a fresh approach to love, sex, and dating. You don’t need to spend one more night staring at a phone screen. It’s time to take back your love life!

    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 any serious dating to try and find their future mate.  It goes into in-depth details why couples should not  text as their way of communicating.

    I am the mother of 4 boys and 4 girls--ages 10-26. I think this book is very helpful for both boys and girls, in knowing where the boundaries should be. I wish I had gotten it sooner.

    Real Men Don't Text (from Tyndale Publishing) offers a new approach to dating that helps to eliminate the confusion over where a relationship is headed and who's really interested in you. I had to read this book, as I have daughters beginning to date and sons coming up behind them that will be entering into relationships. I'm glad I did read it, and I'll encourage my children and other young adults to read it, as well.

    Text messaging, instant messaging, snapchat, facebook - they all offer great ways to communicate and stay in touch with friends, but they also bring challenges to dating relationships. More and more, guys are asking girls for last minute hang-outs that leave a girl wondering if it's a date or not. Is he interested or not? Am I a friend, or something more? Trying to read between the lines of a 2 sentence text is virtually impossible.

    Ruthie Dean had been through a series of bad relationships before she made the decision to not accept text-messaged invites. She made the decision to reply - "that sounds good, but call me to discuss it." Some guys would take the initiative to call, others wouldn't. Michael Dean called ... and kept calling.

    Real Men Don't Text is a very easy book to read and relate to. The chapters alternate between Michael's point of view and Ruthie's point of view, though most of them are coming from Ruthie's experience as a girl trying to navigate the dating world. Sprinkled throughout the book are descriptions of "The Man You're Dating" such as "Mr. Promised He Would Call" and "Mr. Fixer-Upper". This isn't done for man-bashing, because the whole point of the book is that there are bad relationships everywhere, and guys looking for a pretty face to hook up with ... BUT if you wait, there are also great guys out there looking for wives.

    The book also has Text Translation 101 blurbs scattered through the book. This one takes those ambiguous and confusing texts (taken from real situations shared with Ruthie) and interprets them. Most of the time, the translation is ... "He isn't interested in a long-term committed relationship, so move on." This book is about having respect for yourself, and making wise dating decisions that reflect your true worth. You are more than an object, more than a fling, more than occasional entertainment, more than just a pretty face.

    Real Men Don't Text includes many personal stories of other women who've made dating mistakes, and learned from them. You are not alone. I love the chapters on Real Red Flags, Real Turnoffs, Real Men Grow Up, and Real Connection. These came later in the book, but they took the premise of the book and applied it. They help differentiate between a relationship built on a godly foundation, that's headed toward marriage ... and ones that are headed for disaster.

    I highly recommend this book for every young lady entering the dating world!!
