Dating is never easy, no matter what someone’s age — and it only gets more difficult after thirty. Finding The Right Man For You can help women meet more men, guard against men who lie, date more effectively after divorce or the death of a partner, overcome fear and self-doubt, and help a woman know when she’s found the right man. It offers excellent insights on intimacy and sex, dating tips, dating for women who have children and work pressures, personal and financial safety, making a decision about a man, and finding happiness with or without one.

Review by Author:
Finding The Right Man For You: Dating Advice For Women suggests a more organized approach to dating and finding the right man with an objective toward making the process more efficient and effective. I was fortunate to have the assistance of a number of women who read various parts of the book and offered many good suggestions. They shared some personal experiences, too, which have enabled me to offer even better advice on the many topics the book contains. It is supportive, motivational, inspirational, and respectful to women. It also contains many distillations of wisdom in its instructive quotations from many recognized dating and happiness experts, and others noted for their wisdom.

There is a separate chapter on "Finding Happiness With or Without A Man." It's important to make the most of every day, whether we have a partner or not. Sometimes just leading our everyday life is when we find what we least expect. The book emphasizes being a believer. If someone believes that they are not going to meet someone, they are probably going to be right. Consistent application to a good search can produce a good result.

Some might think that this is a strange book for a management professor to be writing, but I felt that more organization and some encouragement to believe in the future could help make a difference in the lives of some women by combating loneliness and potentially leading them to increased happiness and personal fulfillment. As far as rating the book, it would be inappropriate to rate my own book. I'll leave that to the readers. Best wishes to everyone.
