Dating Never Works...Until It does

Are you dating?
Have you ever?
Would you like to be?
Does the prospect sound . . . scary?
There is help.
Fun, funny, practical, conversational, direct, real, sympathetic, encouraging, helpful help.
From a young man who has done it.
Again and again and again and . . . you get the point.
Zack Oates has compiled the lessons gleaned from sincerely trying to find—not the perfect girl—but the one who will walk with him through everything that life can throw. Over 1000 times.
This book is like sitting down with a friend. A good friend who will point out your strengths. But also your faults.
How can you go wrong with chapters such as:
You Don’t Stink at Dating, You’re Just a Good Person
Dating Is like Passing Gas—If You Try Too Hard, It Hurts
Six Ways to Know That You Are the Straight Gay Best Friend
Kindness Is the Most Important Trait for Your List
Girls Go for Bad Boys Because Good Guys Are Idiots
Be You . . . But in Doses
Pepto-Bismol Your Relationship
True Love Isn’t a Fairy Tale—It Does Exist!
And finally (because it is going to work!): BONUS: Great Date Ideas

After reading Zack Oates’ utterly delightful book, Dating Never Works . . . Until it Does. 100 lessons from 1000 Dates, I almost want to go back and try it all over again.
Maybe I’ll just try his dating advice with Husby.
It’ll certainly be fun!

I was given an electronic copy of Dating Never Works...Until it Does in exchange for my honest opinion. Well, I honestly loved it!

About the book:
Tired of mixed messages, confusing signals, and of playing the dating game? Dating expert Zack Oates has experienced it all in this comical guide that will keep you happy and laughing. Perfect for audiences in dating situations of all kinds, these encouraging steps will help you find your perfect mate.
About the author:Zack Oates is an entrepreneur, hot tubber, and blogger. He has started six businesses, which have been featured in Wired Magazine, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal. He has an MBA from BYU with an emphasis in innovation and a bachelor’s in advertising and marketing.

  3. It sounds like a great book that I have absolutely no need for. Twice divorced and happier with my singledom. I can take myself out to dinner :)
    It is hard sometimes not having someone to share good news with, or not having a shoulder to cry on with bad news, but those times are rare and I bumble along.

  5. I hope he writes another book for married folks, maybe something like, 'how not to go to jail for killing your spouse' or '42 years of marital combat, how did they do it?'
