    It is a good book, mostly for people with a commitment already other than singles, even though it has some good tips and orientation to think about in the future if getting into a relationship with someone that might be a partner for life.

    I read this book in one afternoon and was very impressed. I bought it for my college aged neice and her boyfriend for Christmas. She has already called to say she liked it and they have talked a lot about it. Thanks.

    Overall, it's a good book, I do admit that. It's well written, and I agree with much of what is said. However, I was kind of put off by a few parts early to halfway through the book.

    At the end of one chapter, statements are made about the age at which people meet their match, and it bluntly states that once someone is out of college, they're less likely. They then state that by 30, people are getting set in their ways and have even fewer opportunities. I took this as a jab at subtly saying that if someone's not met their match by a certain point, it's probably not going to happen. I don't believe this for a minute. I'm in my late 20s, and I'm a single, educated professional. I don't believe I've missed my chance. There's nothing wrong with individuals growing independently before finding marriage. Anyway, this sentiment is echoed a few times in the book... the assumption that many single Christians fit in the 25-and-under category.

    The second thing I was put off by was mention of red flags in dating. They state that certain things are red flags, and if they appear, you should probably get out, basically. One of these was someone who's currently dealing with depression (or other mental health issues). As a sufferer of clinical depression, I hate to break the news to them that the diagnosis of depression often comes with the term "recurrent" attached. It seems their opinion is that anybody who suffers from depression that MAY recur (hasn't been fully dealt with, as they put it), isn't fit for marriage. I know they were more likely referring to people who are unstable and not those who simply have the diagnosis and occasional struggle, but still, a little research goes a long way...

    All that to say...I liked the book, but I wish that they hadn't fed more negative life into the stigmas of being single past the late 20s and/or having been diagnosed with a mental heath condition.

    I DO SUGGEST THIS BOOK HOWEVER, I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A NOTE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE THING I NOTICED I DISAGREE WITH....THAT THING IS IT STATES IN THE BOOK THAT ALTHOUGH SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE IS A SIN THAT IT WOULDN'T SEND SOMEONE TO HELL. THAT IS FALSE FOLKS. IF YOU DIE IN SIN YOU DO DIE IN SIN. SIN IS SIN. IF YOU COMMIT ONE SIN YOU COMMIT THEM ALL. REMEMBER THAT WHILE READING THIS BOOK!!!! BESIDES THAT THE BOOK HAD SOME GOOD INFORMATION IN IT AND GETS YOU THINKING ABOUT THINGS. THIS IS A BOOK AIMED FOR ADULTS. THIS COULD BE DECENT FOR OLDER TEENS BUT, PARENTS SHOULD READ AND SEE IF THEY APPROVE FIRST. HOPE YOU ENJOY THE BOOK AND DO REMEMBER WE ARE SUPPOSED TO CHECK OUT WHAT WE'RE TOLD NOT JUST TO BELIEVE IT....!!!!!!!!!...... :)
