Dear Person Picking Up This Book,

Hi, I'm Jake. Glamour magazine's advice columnist. You probably think you don't know me. I'm anonymous, after all. But trust me, you do: I'm the guy who doesn't call. Who breaks up by text. Who stays for breakfast, walks your dog, then disappears into thin, thin air.

At least I used to be.

For years I was your basic dating nightmare. And then, under the influence of one magical woman my readers came to know as Orange Blossoms, I changed. Now I'm here to blow the lid off what you think you know about the way guys think. Because here's the big secret I learned from being slayed by Blossoms: Women already have what it takes to get what they want from men; they just need to know how to use that power.

Want a boyfriend? A better boyfriend? A ring? It's all yours for the asking.

But don't just take it from me. Glamour's "Jake" has been at it, living among men sharing their secrets with women since 1956. Now we're distilling our collective wisdom into ten rules to help you get the love life you deserve. A sneak peak at what you'll learn:

  • You've got to broadcast your personality. If you're a nerd, let your nerd flag fly.
  • The best men out there DON'T send expensive flowers.
  • For great sex, save a few tricks for later (much later) on.
  • Plus: How to make him think commitment was his idea? (Sneaky Yes. Necessary YES.)

For more than 50 years, Glamour magazine's Jake columnist has served as a dating consigliore for millions of American women. Now, in his trademark no-B.S. voice, Jake offers this indispensable guide for women. What are men really thinking How can you get the love life you want and deserve? Jake knows.

About the author (2012)

There have been more than a dozen Jakes in the fifty-six-year history of Glamour magazine's column. This book was written by one of the most recent. He is now happily married to the woman his readers came to know as Orange Blossoms--thanks in large part to the wisdom they gave him.
