Most dating books tell you what NOT to do. Here's a book dedicated to telling you what you CAN do.

In his book, Get the Guy, Matthew Hussey--relationship expert, matchmaker, and star of the reality show Ready for Love--reveals the secrets of the male mind and the fundamentals of dating and mating for a proven, revolutionary approach to help women to find lasting love.

Matthew Hussey has coached thousands of high-powered CEOs, showing them how to develop confidence and build relationships that translate into professional success. Many of Matthew's male clients pressed him for advice on how to apply his winning strategies not to just get the job, but how to get the girl. As his reputation grew, Hussey was approached by more and more women, eager to hear what he had learned about the male perspective on love and romance.

From landing a first date to establishing emotional intimacy, playful flirtation to red-hot bedroom tips, Matthew's insightfulness, irreverence, and warmth makes Get the Guy: Learn Secrets of the Male Mind to Find the Man You Want and the Love You Deserve a one-of-a-kind relationship guide and the handbook for every woman who wants to get the guy she's been waiting for.

A word of warning: accessing the online video clips using the book code subjects you to an onslaught of creepy sales pitches for online and in-person seminars. I almost quit reading, but I'm glad I kept going because there is some good advice.

Good advice and it does work.
However, you must make yourself into a socialite and this is where this advice fails for introverts like me. I am afraid I have to rely still on fate to meet men as I cannot do what is required and that is meet many men a week. I am sure this is a common lament among fellow introverts. However, knowing how men's minds work is very helpful.

Of all the dating books out there, THIS IS THE ONE TO READ. Learn how to assert your expectations, without being off-putting, build your confidence, and set your own standards to find true love.

Great advice that makes sense, yet is not common sense. There are a lot of things here you can write out and use every day, no matter where or who you are!

Excellent read! Well written, often comical and what should be 'common' sense. Enjoyed it so much, will be purchasing it!

Most of us are so focused on meeting The One that we wind up not meeting anyone. If I could, I would tattoo this on your palm: every interaction with another human being is a possible gateway to some new world or experience, which could, in turn, introduce you to the love of your life.

Make a habit of talking to new people. It will do wonders for increasing your basic social skills, which will in turn boost your confidence. You will find yourself creating attraction simply by becoming more at ease engaging with someone you don’t know or whom you’ve just met. This happens simply by doing it more often, and applies not only for men but for anyone at all: women, children, young and old. If you are in the habit of meeting more people in general, it will by default lead you to meet more men. Why do you think you revert back to being a blushing, nervous schoolgirl when that hot guy approaches you? Because you’re out of practice. You can’t instantly summon your best, most confident self for the hot guy if you’ve never developed your skills by talking to everyone.

The irony of trying to become acquainted with someone new is that we ask them exactly the kinds of questions that tell us nothing about who they are. Ten minutes talking about a guy’s favorite movie is a better way to tap into any chemistry you many share than an hour spent exchanging your regular résumé-type information of where you work and what you do there.

When it comes to sex, if a guy suspects that any other guy could have also gotten you into bed, your perceived value plummets in his eyes. He suspects that you have no firm standards. He doesn’t feel as if he had to seduce you or charm you in any unique way. He hasn’t had to _work_ for you. He feels as though his only achievement was being present at the right time. What’s more, if it all comes too easily, it also means there was no perceived challenge, which further kills his attraction.

Since all guys want sex, how do you tell when a guy is _only_ out for sex? Even great guys will try for sex on the first or second date, so how do you spot the ones who don’t plan on sticking around?
The first thing to notice is how he reacts to you denying him sex. If his reaction is too emotional, or angry, or upset, or he is too persistent about having to have sex right this minute, ditch him. A guy will react emotionally to being denied sex only if he plans on never having another date with you, or if he has his own emotional hang-ups. Either way, you don’t need any part of it.

A guy worth considering for a serious relationship cherishes you, and if he cherishes you, he shows it. He must display these behaviors before you decide to choose him. Anyone else isn’t the guy for you.

When a long-term relationship ends, if we search our hearts and are honest with ourselves, we may realize that we ignored the warning signs because we were hoping against hope that we’d found our soul mate. Remember that people are always showing you who they are.
