Perigee Books, 2005 - Family & Relationships - 202 pages
Boys are like birds: in the dating world, it can be hard to tell the prized specimens from the bad eggs. But with this handy fully-illustrated field guide, boywatching is about to get easier. After years of intensive study, authors (and intrepid boywatchers) Amy Helmes and Meg Leder give women key facts about the most common species, such as:
- Turkeys are shameless in their pursuit of an intended mate
- Ladies have to dress trendy to bag a Parrot
- Women can flush out Hummingbirds at speed-dating clinics
- Doves won't brag to their friends the morning after a date
- Pigeons are the "Average Joes" of the male world
- It's almost impossible to ignore a Flamingo
- Run away from becoming a Vulture's prey
Both novice and experienced boywatchers will appreciate this definitive survey of men in all their full-feathered glory.
