20 First Dates
My Search for Mr Right
by Rebecca K Maddox
This was such a refreshing book to read. Rebecca Maddox writes from the perspective of a young, single Christian, to encourage those who are wanting to find the love of their life, but who need help in how, when and where to start.
She embarks on an innovative process of setting herself the target of going on 20 first dates with 20 men whom she has met in various ways. Some are disastrous, some are boring, but others are interesting and have potential.
Rebecca writes with such enthusiasm that even the most timorous of readers would find it hard to resist her call to "get out there and see where it leads you".
Although it is written by a woman dating men, the advice is, on the whole, applicable to men wanting to date women.
Thoroughly up to date, the book includes advice on speed dating and Internet sites, and explores potential traps and pitfalls of dating. The final section seeks to empower the reader to feel that he / she has the emotional steadiness and self-belief to go out in search of a partner.
The energy and the humour with which this book is written is empowering in itself. Had I not already been married to Mr Right for 50 years I would certainly be "out there searching" in response to this unusual and most entertaining book.
