Publisher's Summary

When it comes to finding a suitable mate for a passion filled, committed relationship, one of the things men want most in a woman is self-possession, or said another way, womanly poise.

When a woman lacks poise she generally gives too much of herself, and usually at the most ineffective times when dating a man. She is too lenient with men in the beginning stages of a new romance, and she's prone to compromising her standards just to keep a man in her life.

A woman with poise never chases or throws herself at a man, especially if he's pulling away from her. She also doesn't make things easy for a man by clearing her schedule "just in case" he calls or comes around.

This book was designed for women who want to go from being powerless to being irresistible to men. In it, you'll discover the secrets to having more confidence and power with men and dating as you learn the beliefs, attitudes, dating rules, "love habits", and seduction secrets of the high-value woman.

Here's what you're going to learn inside:

  • The most seductive first date "good deed" that can capture a man's desire and make him desperate to see you again
  • The number-one key to conquering a man's heart during the early dating stages (this is something most women only figure out after years of painful trial and error)
  • How to get a boyfriend by avoiding a huge relationship-killing mistake most women make within the first few weeks of dating
  • How to get a man to treat you like a top priority (instead of his plan B) once you start dating him
  • How to maintain the "queen's composure" when men pull away and how to use it to make the good ones come running back to you
  • The "dating rules" high-value women use to quickly eliminate players and find Mr. Right
  • And much, much more

Get started right away and discover how to date like a high-value woman to get the guy without getting played.

Not What I Was Expecting

I'm a man. I listened to this in the hopes of getting insights into women's dating strategies and challenges. The basic takeaway is that men will treat you how you let them treat you. Duh. Be a lady, set standards and if you're in it to win it don't comprise. The "be a lady" advice was what I'd most expected based on his men's material. In the men's material, he gets into why this works and the psychology behind it. No such luck with this book. "Set Standards" is good advice for anyone. He goes beyond that by suggesting what standards work best for finding a spouse. He also outlines some calibrated responses to seeing someone fall below the standards. Now "if you're in it to win it don't comprise" is perhaps the best advice that he offers. Guys are happy to "not put a label on it," "not introduce you to his friends" or otherwise plan for the future. If he's not serious, be prepared to move on.

The Author's Like The Brother You've Always Wanted

I love that "How to Get a Man Without Getting Played: 29 Dating Secrets to Catch Mr. Right, Set Your Standards, and Eliminate Time Wasters" makes you feel like you are having a casual chat with a big brother or father figure about dating. There's no fluff and sometimes he ensures he repeats important info he wants to get through. It is a great tool to use as a refresher.

Life Changing!

I’ve been listening to several dating books for women, each of them has brought value and change to my life, but this one left me feeling the best! It has encouraged me to have more respect for myself, how to have a positive instead of negative outlook on disappointing dating experiences and most of all, I feel empowered and excited about dating. It’s easier now to walk away from men who are bad for me. Years of bad dating habits are quickly falling away with the discovery of this book. I’ve suggested it to friends who also feel that the information in here is mind blowing. No gimmicks either, but pure, sincere and healthy advice. So glad I found this life changer! I’m glowing with happiness now with the motivation I found in this audiobook.

Must read

Just what I needed to hear. I see where I'm going wrong, especially with the men that are not consistent in their behaviour. I have always tried to chase to make up for their bad behaviour, lose of interest. Very insightful.
