I love this book; it has helped me separate being a modern professional woman and having a working intimate relationship. It really helped me understand how it's not equality but equity that helps a relationship succeed.

This book has made a huge difference in my life,and I how I deal with all my relationships, both personal and professional. It's helped me better to understand my male-energy girlfriends and female-energy male co-workers. For me, Pat's overall message is about balance in a relationship - finding the complements and working through the differences.

There is a lot of truth to what Pat Allen writes about in this book. From experience, I can tell you that she is right about how men behave and how we women mess up potentially great relationships. The bottom line is that women need to let masculine men be men, and by that I mean assertive, hard working, problem-solving, protective, helpful, generous and independent minded. Otherwise, we wouldn't want to marry them! But she also makes it clear that women must set the boundaries for acceptable behavior from men, right from the very start of the relationship. In particular, women should not give themselves sexually to a man until he commits to an exclusive, continuous and long term relationship, and you share the same goals for the relationship. Why? Because women bond to men through sex, and it is our most intimate act. If we give it without this commitment, we will lose our self-esteem and feel used. A man's commitment is a sign that he is on his way to love, not just playing around. If a man says he is not ready for a commitment, believe him!! He just wants sex, not a relationship, and you will spend the rest of your time with him trying to convince him to love you, further regrading yourself. Read this book BEFORE you get involved with another man, and you will feel much better about yourself.

I read this book about 4 years ago... I did everything it said... and I've been happily married now for two years. After I read the first 4 chapters I bought 10 of these books and gave them to my girlfriends. Unfortunately, most of them laughed at it and today they are still single or now unwed-mothers with no man. I've realized since then that some women will always be victims because they never listen to good advice. For every problem Dr. Patricia Allen gives an answer. I'm very happy.

As a modern, career-oriented woman, this book was uncomfortable for me to read but it was what i needed to understand my mistakes, recognize patterns, and make changes that can lead to marriage. after reading this i’m a fan of pat allen’s and will be going to her seminars as well as listening to her podcasts. every modern woman should read this book.

Patricia Allen is a Brilliant!!! This book gives a viewpoint that may SHOCK many however only those that can't accept the way many things we were taught re: relationships now don't work! 60% divorce rate proves that.Dr. Paticia Allen has lived and learned and this book has changed my life and many of my friends.

This book will definitely help you define the role you wish to play in your relationship. It will help you understand yourself and your partner, including his communication style etc. I highly recommend it.

This is the worst book that I have ever read in my life! Basically, this book should have been written in the 1950's for the June Cleaver type of marriage. Not to mention, the author has been divorced four times and counting! What healthy, educated woman wants to choose between being respected or being cherished?! Don't waste your money or time on this book!
