about this item

How long should I wait to respond to his text message? Can I friend him on Facebook? Why did he ask for my number but never call me?When The Rules was published in 1995, its message was straightforward: be mysterious. But for women looking for love today, it's not quite so simple. In a world of instant messaging, location check-ins, and status updates, where hook-ups have become the norm and formal one-on-one dates seem a thing of the past, it's difficult to retain the air of mystery that keeps men interested.Now, with help from their daughters, the original Rules Girls Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider share their thoroughly modern, fresh take on dating that will help women in today's information age create the happy love lives they want and deserve. Whether you're a 20-something dating for the first time, a 30-something tired of being single, a 40-something giving advice to your daughter, or a 50-something getting back in the dating game, this book has the answers you've been waiting for. TheRules include:
  • Stay Away from his Facebook Profile
  • Make Yourself Invisible and Other Ways to Get Out of Instant Messaging
  • Stop Dating a Guy Who Cancels More than Once
  • Text-Back Times Chart
  • Don't Just Hang Out or See Him 24/7
  • TTYL: Always End Everything First-- Get Out of There!
  • And much, much more!
Providing the dos and don'ts you need to stop making mistakes and start finding romance,NOT YOUR MOTHER'S RULES will revolutionize dating today just as The Rulesdid nearly 20 years ago!
Women looking for love today have it hard. With constant updating on social networking sites, the expectation that hook-ups are the norm, and the ability to be in touch with everyone at all times, it's difficult to navigate dating-- let alone retain the air of mystery that keeps men interested. NOT YOUR MOTHER'S RULES is a thoroughly modern, fresh take on The Rules that will help women in today's new information age create the happy dating lives they deserve. With tips like "wait four hours to return a text message and at least 30 minutes thereafter," "don't email anything you wouldn't want a guy to have if you break up," "rules for sexting," and "rarely write on his wall," this book will be revolutionary. They even run through "20 rules that bear repeating!"

Providing the dos and don'ts women need to date successfully in today's increasingly text-crazy, sex-obsessed society, NOT YOUR MOTHER'S RULES will change the datin gbook market just as much as The Rules did in 1995!
