Why does dating have to be so hard?

It doesn’t! Stop trying to out-game the system and relax. IT'S JUST A F***ING DATE presents the tools, not the rules, for bringing back the art of the date.

  • Hmmm

    By Dyan182
    The book as a whole is good. There are a few "double standards" towards the middle to end that annoyed me and made me think less of their advice as a whole. I feel this book could use some major updating and elaboration on the topic of internet dating, this topic was only just touched on and in this day and age it is how most of the population dates.
  • It's just a f#%*king date

    By Fly mocha
    This book was very helping from the moment I started reading it. I am a divorced woman who never really went on dates prior to my marriage. So, for me I saw my mistakes and hope to work toward, being a great dater. Working toward a healthy relationship. Thank you both.
  • Don't waste your time.

    By SamanthaSF
    Wow, this book is just awful. First of all, there are SO MANY grammatical and nonsensical errors in the iPad version. Even spacing errors! Come on. Second of all, maybe the advice is good for a 28 year old virgin who has been living in a hole with no interaction from the outside world since she was 8. MAYBE. It's just all obvious and outdated. This is the 21st century people. Either figure it out, or get out. Don't buy it.
  • Good Advice

    By Smarty-L
    Dating in the technology world of today is hard and it is easy to lose yourself unintentionally. This book is loaded with great advice! You get to thinking about your dating errors of the past and begin to come up with some standards for preventing them in the future. It is also full of positive dialogue that gives you that "hell yea I'm awesome and worth it" attitude. All you grammar Nazis out there, be warned this book will push you over the edge (I also penalized a star for this even though I am no grammar queen). I had to re-read things due to extra words being left in sentences that should have been removed, there were commas in wrong places (including in the middle of the word ou,t), and misuse of contractions. Take it for what it is, advice for those of us lost in the dating world, however, an editor would have made this a much easier and better read.
  • This book is delicious.

    By Kevin Meyers
    Do you remember dating? It was a simple ritual: a man shows his interest in a woman and invites her to have a cup of coffee, a drink, a meal, possibly a movie or maybe even, if they're both into that sort of thing, live kabuki theatre. You never knew, but the idea was simple: if men and women get to know each other before they jump in the sack, good things can and frequently did happen. This book remembers that ritual and invites us to re-discover the joys of dating (while accepting that those joys sometimes are tempered by disappointment). As you re-learn the ropes of dating, the co-author of HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU and his co-author on the equally fantastic IT'S CALLED A BREAK-UP BECAUSE IT'S BROKEN drop intelligent, time-tested tips while keeping a smile on your face as you survey the rocky landscape of dating in a post-Snapchat, pre-everyone-gets-the-unitard-because-we're-in-space-like-Star-Trek world. This is everything you'd expect from Behrendt & Ruotola and everything you, or someone you know, needs. Pick it up. Your heart will thank you.

    Cute and funny, as expected...but please, hire an editor. Would have been 4 stars if it were not for the staggering number of grammatical errors. :(
