I bought this book years ago, when I was teaching myself about the Rules of Dating. I was too young and naïve back then, that learning anything without experience wasn’t an option.
There are no short cuts for single or married women. The same amount of work is involved in getting a man and keeping one.
A valuable lesson I learned, that we as women should never neglect ourselves, we need to take time out to nurture and pamper ourselves both emotionally and physically.
I love this book because Helen Gurley Brown gives us tough love, she lays out a step by step guide line on the rules of being single and enjoying casual sex in the city.
It’s perfectly natural to want a relationship, providing it’s for all the right reasons. It’s important to have a life and not focus on finding Mr. Right.
We learn that when we focus on ourselves it makes it easier to have an adult relationship not just with Mr. Right but with all the other important people in our lives.
I enjoyed reading the section where all the different types of men are broken down by group, and the places where we can meet them.
This little book is filled with other useful advice, the most important, that there is no set path for achieving happiness and success.
Before there was Sex & the City there was Helen Gurley Brown.
