The fab new guide to dating co-authored by Greg Behrendt, former writer on Sex and the City, who won women's hearts with his two million copy bestseller 'He's Just Not That Into You'.
What ever happened to dating? Used to be that a guy would ask a girl out. He'd pick her up at her house and take her out for dinner, a movie, or a cup of coffee and some conversation. Then both parties would decide if they wanted to do it again next week. There was protocol. A standard set of guidelines to follow for this age-old ritual. Now who even knows what dating is? There are so many social pressures and panics that dating has become an anxiety-riddled experience complicated by the sexual revolution, the internet and Richard Curtis movies.
'It's Just a F***ing Date' will give you tools, not rules that you can use to protect yourself, while also opening you up to new ideas about how to date and who might be right for you. Dating doesn't have to be hard - in fact, if not taken so seriously, it can be seriously fun.
Dating guide includes:
* The digital age and how it's changed dating, including mobile phones, e-mailing, text messaging (the new not calling) and online dating.
* The compromise: hooking up, booty calls and quasi dates - was it or wasn't it a date?
* Telling your current person about your exes.
* Exit strategies - how to pull the plug when the dating isn't working out.
