It seemed like occasionally it would dawn on the author that they may have some non-hetero readers, and they would throw in a tip or two. There is a section on "How to identify if a chick is into women", but it is full of the same old tired stere I was very underwhelmed by this book.

There is a section on "How to identify if a chick is into women", but it is full of the same old tired stereotypes. I showed this section to a lesbian friend and she rolled her eyes. I feel like there probably are better books out there for non-hetero readers. This book was just full of ridiculous advice- like how long to wait before answering a message. It's and we are still talking about that? Good lord One part of the book seriously offended me though. The author states that men do not like funny women.

They apparently appreciate having funny female friends, but they don't want to sleep with funny women. She advises saving your sense of humor until you have already secured a few dates with a man. That is absolutely ridiculous!

Why would you want to be with someone who doesn't appreciate the real you? I have a good sense of humor and my previous boyfriends have said that it was one of their favorite things about me.

I don't recommend this book. There is definitely better dating advice out there! I am so very fucked. As we all know, dating isn't something I'm very experienced with. Some things seemed to go against everything I do - use short messages only online, brief profiles, casually date a lot o I am so very fucked.
