    As a man, when you decide that you want to express your romantic or sexual desires, interests, and intentions to a woman, how do you go about communicating those desires and interests to her? Do you communicate your desires and interests to women in a cautious, vague, ambiguous, or 'beat-around-the-bush' manner? Do you avoid approaching women and avoid initiating a conversation with women altogether? Do you regularly cheat on your wife or girlfriend behind her back? Are you currently filled with so much bitterness, misogyny, and resentment toward women that you have no desire whatsoever to even interact with women? When listening to the audiobook version of Mode One: Let the Women Know What You're Really Thinking, Author and Professional Dating Coach Alan Roger Currie describes and examines what he refers to as the "Four Modes of Verbal Communication".

    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

Susie says this is a must-have for every sex-positive family. Cory's book discusses the "where do we come from" question, and he doesn't give the usual mom-and-dad or bible story. Susie and Cory talk about why most kids' books take the sugary syrupy approach to talking about sex, and they look at what kinds of families are ready for early sex education.

There is no happily-ever-after that we can reach when we find our prince or princess.

    The divorce rate among Christian couples is at an all time high, courtship in many churches has sadly started to look like a bad rendition of The Dating Game and The Bachelor combined, and too many men who are calling themselves a Christian are giving the people of God's kingdom and the church a bad rep.
