Most dating books are written for women—what a mistake that is. Women know how to date. . .it's men who need the help! At last: a blithe, bold, and bawdy guide to building a better boyfriend.
At some point, every guy—player, geek, mama's boy, "regular Joe"—meets a woman who makes him want to be a boyfriend. A good boyfriend. Problem is, unless he's had some first-rate training (by a previous girlfriend, a sister, a mom), he probably doesn't even know what that means. Felicity Huffman and Patricia Wolff come to the rescue with a rollicking and whip-smart handbook to navigating the minefield of male-female relationships.
Directed at men (though, of course, it's women who'll buy it, then leave it at their boyfriends' places—accidentally on purpose), A Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend lays out the manly steps involved in becoming a good boyfriend while still maintaining guy-dignity. It covers issue like:
-Who decides when you become a boyfriend? (Answer: She does) -How to look like you're listening, even when you're not (If you're busted, just say "You're so pretty, I'm distracted")
-Ten things never to say on the first date (#4: "I just did that to freak you out")
-Finding the middle ground between too cool (think third grade) and too eager (think surprise visits)
-Why becoming a good boyfriend is a lot like training for the A-Team.
Filled with humor, ribaldry, common sense, and assorted outdoor skills, A Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend is the next dating guide to dominate the bestseller lists.
