Get the Guy: Learn Secrets of the Male Mind to Find the Man You Want and the Love You Deserveby Matthew Hussey
Synopses & Reviews
Love is hard. But it doesn't have to be.
Leading relationship expert and rising media personality Matthew Hussey provides what every woman needs to know to find lasting love. Offering invaluable insight into the male psyche, he will change the way you approach men and dating and give you the tools you need to find the man you deserve. Hussey answers every single woman's three most burning questions:
In Get the Guy, you will learn specific strategies for getting out there and meeting the best single guys. You will also learn why the guy you like has gone cold and the secrets to reigniting a spark with him. And you'll discover why so many guys seem to be afraid of long-term commitment and the three simple steps you can take that will change his mind.
Hussey also reveals why playing hard to get is a lose-lose game. A man doesn't want to endlessly chase a woman who is impossible to attain; he wants to win over a woman who is “high value." You'll find out how to create nonnegotiable standards for the way you want to be treated—and utilize a foolproof method for determining if a man can live up to them.
Leveraging what he learned from coaching thousands of men to find personal and professional success, Hussey will teach you how to meet more men, how to choose one who is worth your time, and finally, how to keep him enthralled forever. His insightfulness, irreverence, and warmth make the journey to love playful and fun, and his advice ensures success in both romance and life.
"Dating coach and TV personality Hussey (from NBC's forthcoming reality show, Ready for Love) draws from his popular relationship webinar, GetTheGuy, for this compendium of bite-sized suggestions to help women find, get, and keep 'the guy.' Sprinkled throughout are links to digital tie-ins (one directs readers to a video of Hussey demonstrating 'the look' that's meant to grab men's attention), but most of the advice is mind-numbingly bland — 'Love is hard;' 'A man gets excited by the idea of having sex with a woman he desires;' and so on. Hussey does offer some practical tips — he insists that 'the smallest changes in your daily rituals can yield huge results.' To that end, he explains how to 'Get Good at WAR (working a room),' instigate physical contact without coming off as aggressive, make dates more spontaneous and fun, and text a guy to hang out (I'm here doing X, 'You should come!'). Hussey occasionally goes into an absurd amount of detail — as when he lists nine reasons a guy hasn't called, when a simple 'He's just not that into you' would suffice; most readers will likely deem their time better spent in some other scene.
