A truly great book Apr 20, 2010
I bought this book last week, and in six days I finished reading it. I read this fast not because I was trying to learn all the secrets about dating, but because I had such a wonderful time reading it that it was almost impossible to put it down. I decided to buy this book after reading all the reviews for this book, and at the time I bought this book all were 5 star reviews. This is a great book, some parts were really funny and I caught myself laughing out loud because some of the stories in it. Other stories made me realize that I was not the only man in this world that is going through the difficult task of finding a great woman to date. The greatest lesson from this book is that you need to have a life before dating. You need to discover yourself and truly find purpose in your life.I learned that it is a mistake to think that a girlfriend will give meaning to your life, that's too much to ask from her.
I realized a lot of things that I need to work on before I start dating.I can truly see how in just a few days my view of dating and life have changed.I recommend this book to every man out there. This book talks about God, but it's in no way preachy, and it offers a great perspective on biblical views on dating. Have fun reading it, you will not be dissapointed.
Glad I found this book Sep 22, 2009
As a single guy, I have begun reading various books on dating and meeting women. I know a lot of it is all about exuding self-confidence. But the truth is, my spiritual beliefs play an important role in how I connect with a woman. Not many of of the seduction authors seem to pay attention to that.
So, I was glad to find a book written by someone who understand where I am coming from. The advice in this book made complete sense to me.
The "Where To Start" section was incredibly helpful. The author gives suggestions on how to go out and begin to meet women but do it with sincerity and how to not come across as a predator. It was this part of the book that inspired me to take my first step into the dating world.
Finally a Readable Road Map for the Confusing World of Dating Oct 17, 2008
I'm an old married guy now, so I can't really put Dr. Simpson's funny and practical wisdom to much use. But, "back in the day," I may have avoided considerable anxiety and heartache if I had access to this comprehensive step by step guide to Christian dating.
The book starts at the absolute beginning. Not when a guy finds himself attracted to a lady, but when a guy learns to be a man. From there, Simpson walks his reader step by step through various subjects like: talking to a woman, asking someone out on a date, what a first date should look like, what second & third dates should be like, etiquette, and the ever popular "how far should we go?" question.
The book doesn't leave out advice for the ladies. There are very insightful side boxes throughout the book for them as well.
No man attempting to navigate his way through the labyrinth of Christian dating should be without this fun to read guide. I loved it so much I bought copies for my four teenage nephews. If you're looking for a book to help yourself or someone else decode the Christian dating scene, look no further than this one.

A Man's Perspective on Christian Dating - Incredible! Jun 19, 2008
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.
