Product Description

Dating does not come natural to guys; it's a system obviously thought up by someone who isn't a guy, and is probably a girl, too. Guys come into it scratching their heads and quickly leave screaming, only to come back because they don't know what else to do with themselves. Then they fumble around until they discover that there are rules, and then, after they cobble together enough of the rules to make something work, they discover a new rule. If there were only a place where all the rules were written down so guys could read them before they wandered into the arena, everything would be quick and easy, right?
Well, it might be quicker and easier (and a whole lot less messier), but it's still going to take a little work. Luckily, reading this book isn't work at all. Stephen Simpson writes with wit, humor and wisdom as he provides a gazetteer to the landscape of relationships and simplifies without dumbing down. A couple dozen sidebars are also included for the ladies, encouraging both genders to work together to make this sometimes crazy system work for everyone concerned.

    Stephen Simpson's "What Women Wish You Knew About Dating" is a thought-provoking, laugh-out-loud funny reality check! Filled with wonderful quotes at the beginning of each chapter, do-able Biblical advice, and true life stories that draw the reader into the chapter topics, I recommend this book to men and women, single and married. This is a must read for anyone who has or hopes to have a significant other. We should treat each other this way all the time - especially after we marry - not just when we're dating.The author's use of movies to explain topics really impacted my film-loving libido. I also loved the info boxes created in each chapter just for us gals. Simpson deserves many thanks for defining the difference between guys and men, discussing everything involved in dating relationships from where to meet to sensitive issues like how to handle pre-marital sexuality. I wish I would have had this book in my naive dating years! Although I must admit, it did shed some light on several situations from my past that I didn't really understand, and made me very grateful for how blessed I am to have the husband I do.
