"When a pioneer of Catholic Internet dating shares what he has learned from his clients, Catholics searching for a spouse will want to listen. As founder of Ave Maria Singles, Anthony Buono has helped to shepherd hundreds of couples through the dating process to happy marriages. He has also dealt with many more who find the modern dating scene a minefield of heartache. Buono helps frustrated singles examine the most common mistakes that single men and women make and asks his audience to consider ways to work on the one person they can 'fix': themselves. The idea is that you won't find a good candidate for marriage until you become one yourself. Chapters such as 'Become Humble,' 'Become Pure,' 'Become Self-Aware,' and 'Become Practical' address unrealistic expectations, moral problems that threaten love, and ways to live one's faith in the context of relationships."Catholic Digest, October, 2012
"Anthony Buono has written a wonderful blueprint on becoming a good Christian marriage candidate. This book is the result of his many years of encouraging hundreds of young Catholic men and women in their journey of dating and marriage and helping them to find each other online at www.AveMariaSingles.com.
"So many writers on dating and courtship focus on what to look for in a potential spouse. Buono helps his readers look at themselves, to see if they are the kind of person who is prepared to be successful in marriage. He presents virtue after virtue that every Christian should cultivate to become the person God wants them to be. His material is solidly Catholic, the kind of thing St. Francis de Sales might have written for someone hoping to marry well.
"Would You Date You? is a recipe for holiness. Nothing could prepare a person better than this for a healthy, lasting marriageand, of course, for the eternal marriage with God."Rev. T.G. Morrow, author of Christian Courtship in an Oversexed World
