Navigating our romantic lives can be filled with incredible highs and unfathomable lows. Everyone enters relationships with a unique idea of what makes connection work. But even with our differences, we have a common thread running through all of us: the deep desire to love and be loved.
Based on her experiences, and with the help of her closest friends and the men in her life, author Jessica R. Bunevacz created a series of guidelines for women looking to enjoy dating and romance and avoid common pitfalls and difficulties.
Whether you're dating, getting ready to walk down the aisle, or are already married and looking to take your marriage to the next level, it's profoundly important to celebrate where you are on your journey and make every day special and meaningful for yourself and those around you.
"Date like a Girl, Marry like a Woman "incorporates Bunevacz's own stories of love, dating, and marriage with practical advice for today's modern relationship and reminds readers not to settle for anything less than the best.

This is a short and straight to the point book that's divided into two sections; that of dating and afterwards, marriage. The dating section of the book is about 30 rules and in addition to the rules she gives examples of how to incorporate them into one's life. I like that in some instances she does take into consideration that people of different financial status may read her book, not just the wealthy ones. One of the rules, such as "Keep something on the first few times you have sex" sounds a bit strange to me, What I also would like to mention is that while anyone can use the book and the advice the author gives, strangely enough there isn't much advice or taking into account for those who are single mothers or are divorced, at least for me. The second section is focusing on marriage and how to keep marriage happy. The advice, I'll admit, is very old fashioned and might upset some women who are looking for something more egalitarian in a marriage. (One piece of advice is "A polished wife knows how to cook." and "A polished wife knows how to feed her husband's ego.") but while dispensing this type of advice, she does manage to give it a more modern twist. "Learning to cook doesn't have to be stressful, time consuming, or costly and can be structured to fit your learning style." (145) Although I'm not married, nor I've never been married, but in life I found out that old fashioned advice applies to relationships far more than modern advice.
