Fantastic book, so incredibly practical and clear to help affirm my thoughts as I enter Christian dating post divorce in my 40’s. I feel so validated as well as informed and liberated to both exercise caution as well as enjoy the experience of dating. For women like me, who are recovering from betrayal of our first spouse and watching for red flags in every person I meet, this was very healing and calming. Thank you so very much. This book has absolutely impacted the trajectory or my future in a very positive way

Such great guidelines for everyone to be smart daters. It's not about how to find someone to date, but how to be ready to date safely, protecting yourself from the person that isn't really right for you in spite of that fluttery feeling at the beginning.

The first thing to mention which I had not read in other reviews is this book relates and frequently referenced religion. If like me you are not religious then is no good. I listened to and hour which is all I could stomach. In the hour that I listened to if the you forget the religion the points raised although relevant are in my opinion for a younger audience as they are points your learn in your early years, so if like me you are in your 40’s then this book is not for you.
