Hold on there chicas! Before you throw your stilettos at the screen and write me off, let me explain. I just finished reading a book that was sent to me called Stop Looking for a Husband: Find the Love of Your Life. This book was written by Marina Sbrochi and is based on life lessons she learned in her own love life along with those gleaned from her friend’s experiences as well. As someone who’s definitely done their time in the dating scene and who helps people (usually men) with coaching sessions I found this book to be a very good source of inspiration for any woman who feels like she’s reached her breaking point with the dating scene. Before you toss in the towel and resign yourself to a life of spinsterhood and owning ten or more cats, please do yourself a favor and grab this book.
Stop Looking for a Husband: Find the Love of Your Life takes a common sense approach and a healthy dose of humor to dissect dating and understanding more about the male psyche and how some “stereotypical” (but true) female tendencies can send men running for the hills. For example, something as simple as a smile can be a life-changing act. Yes, it’s trite and it sounds like something your elementary school teacher would say. However, it’s an extremely essential tool. Almost all women are guilty of giving people the stank face or cold stare when we’re out around town or especially with our friends. For sure, we go out to spend time with our girls, and relax. So, at times it can be annoying when a random guy approaches your group. However, if you’re single – and more importantly lamentably single –don’t be so quick to give a decent guy the death stare when he approaches.
Or, are you guilty of letting your imagination get the best of you? By this I mean that you’ve barely started dating a guy and you’re already looking at “his and hers” towels and trying to spend every waking moment with him. Marina (and I agree!) strongly encourages women not to get so caught up in daydreaming romances that they scare a man away. No one wants to date someone who acts like a love sick puppy dog. Not only is it suffocating but it’s quite frankly a turn off. Maintain a sense of self and you’ll be that much more alluring to men.
Stop Looking for a Husband is a quick read (paperback version is 117 pages!) and is small enough to fit in your purse – hint hint! But for the more tech savvy chicas, there’s also an ebook version available for the Kindle. It also includes a very handy appendix section that basically sums up the various chapters and provides a bit of Q&A to help you troubleshoot real life dating scenarios.
In short, for the New York ladies who are tired of the drama, games and just pure craziness associated with the singles scene in this city – I beg you to buy this book! It’s funny, straight to the point and quite frankly brutally honest. And that’s something us New Yorkers can understand. If you’re not happy with how your dating life has stacked up so far, you owe it to yourself to take a moment and re-evaluate your behavior so that you can meet Mr. Right!
