Over the years (my single years) I read many books on being single and on being a Christian single. They usually gave trite advice amongst the usual advice to “pray about it”. Any of you that have reached your 30’s or 40’s (or more) being single will find a camaraderie with this author.There are different kinds of romantic/sexual relationships you can have with people and not everyone is always on the same page.Dating, seeing each other, casual, friends with benefits, one-night stand, in a relationship, exclusive, open etc.Both of these extremes, I would hope obviously, miss the mark and Lisa bluntly, comically, sometimes sadly (some stories relate-able, some painful, all understandable and always offered with courageous and humble transparency), shares a wealth of knowledge from her personal experiences, stories from friends or what seems to be the standard viewpoint of today's average young adult.This book flat-out speaks the truth, shares the all-too-important stakes of dating for the wrong reasons (outside of God's will) , addresses the perils of dating without direction and, in accordance with God's Word, trumpets the call for all couples to date with purpose, including the very real yet never discussed importance of preparing oneself to be in a place where they are able to date before dating even begins.
Even though dating the following 21 guys will leave you older, wiser, and with a zillion good stories, after a certain point they just aren't worth the headache. That's cool if you're into it, not so great if you aren't.
