"The Rules" Were Meant to Be Broken

Today's women don't need to play games or play hard to get. Nothing is more attractive than a woman who knows who she is and what she wants; a woman who has a life, and is selective about the man with whom she's going to share it. It's time to take control of your dating destiny, and this indispensable guide shows you how.
-- Discover the eight crucial steps to creating a fulfilling, excitement lifestyle (it's your most attractive asset)
-- Give yourself an attitude makeover with tips for getting the most out of your life -- right now
-- Learn what separates the men from the boys -- from CBs (cute boys) to PFHs (possible future husbands) -- and which one is right for you
-- Types of men to avoid: the Klingon (too dependent); the Bell Hop (too much baggage); the Whine Steward (never stops complaining)
-- Find the right place to meet your type and how to identify someone you'd like to get to know
-- How to spot, approach, and "close" the deal with a phone number in your pocket
-- Phone tips for keeping the ball in your court
-- Strategies for "the call back"
-- Setting up the first date: how to ask, where to go, what to do
-- Getting past the "getting to know you" games
-- Life after the first date: sex, commitment...marriage?

Passive attitudes are passe. It's time to throw out the old "Rules" book and become the confident, independent woman you were always meant to be...starting right now!
