Great Perspective on Dating

What did you love best about In Sync with the Opposite Sex?

I'm such a fan of Alison's work that I felt compelled to write a review. I've listened to all of her materials and this is my favorite. Wherever you are in your relationships, dating or married or maybe given up, Alison offers insights that are profoundly impactful and that just might make you laugh out loud when you see how silly men and women can be. I laugh frequently when I listen to this recording and always get something out of it. I can't recommend it enough.

What was one of the most memorable moments of In Sync with the Opposite Sex?

There is a moment where one of the male participants asks Alison about overpowering chemistry. Their back and forth, especially when he remembers he's being recorded, is delightful and reveals quite a lot about the power of chemistry.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from In Sync with the Opposite Sex?

I've taken so much from this particular recording. The two biggest takeaways are a shifted perspective on men and compassion for myself and other women as we struggle to make our relationships work in the quest for love.

Any additional comments?

I came to this work and wanted to learn from Alison out of a desperation to find and make a romantic relationship work. I returned because this work increases my capacity to be a compassionate contributor to the world and to myself. It's about so much for than finding a boyfriend.

I can't recommend this enough!

Alison Armstrong really breaks down the different and 'opposite' way that men and women approach dating and makes sense of it all. I learned so much from this program and have already listened to it twice. She knows men and women in a whole different way than most people. Her insights and program were not just insightful, but extremely reassuring that I'm not alone in this journey of dating!

More about dating than relationships

From the title, I was expecting more about relationships than dating but, although this gives basics for how she thinks about things, this was more helpful for dating than for established relationships. I like the partnership one better.

Alison is amazing. This was so helpful.

I learned a lot. some I already knew but was told time,and again don't do that or don't say that, you can't put it all out there. Well I think you can and should.

Very practical and entertaining!

What made the experience of listening to In Sync with the Opposite Sex the most enjoyable?

Simple, easy to understand and all the points made complete sense. When the behaviours of men and women were explained it was obvious as to why we are the way we are :)

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

Fun, entraining, light harder approach yet very insightful.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!

Sexist ideas all over the lecture

The idea of men being hunters and women being gatherers is sexist and primitive. Do not recommend this, unless you agree with this:

"If you are an independent women, you have to learn how to be a gatherer women in order to get a parter, because hunters do not ask hunters out."

Please, stop perpetrating this idea already. We are in the XXI century already. we are not cavemen or cavewomen.

Fantastic !

I agree with most of what Alison says, except that she says that we can't have a relationship with someone whom we are very attracted to. I want to be very attracted to man, otherwise I don't want a relationship with him. Also sex is important in a relationship and how do you have sex with someone you're not really attracted to? Apart from this point I loved this workshop and all the useful information she provides. Highly recommended!

Essential for everybody looking for their partner

Would you listen to In Sync with the Opposite Sex again? Why?

Yes, there is so much amazing information that will help me in my work as a couples' therapist, and that will help me give better advice to friends who are looking for love or at the early stages of relationship. Plus it is so humorously delivered that it is great fun to listen to.

What other book might you compare In Sync with the Opposite Sex to, and why?

Alison Armstrong is like no other person I have come across in the field of understanding opposite sex relationships in terms of her depth of understanding of and compassion and respect for BOTH sexes. I have been working on this stuff for years and she has dramatically transformed for the better my view of men as a woman in the few short months since I discovered her work, and not only that she has helped me transform my understanding of myself as a woman. And it is done with genuine love, deep respect and utter adoration of men and women in their differences.

Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favourite?

This is a recorded workshop on dating - there are no characters.

Any additional comments?

I cannot recommend Alison Armstrong strongly enough to any man or woman, whether looking for a partner or in a relationship or already married - she will change your LIFE!

So I am normal and right on track

If you could sum up In Sync with the Opposite Sex in three words, what would they be?

Informative
Interesting
Essential

What other book might you compare In Sync with the Opposite Sex to, and why?

I have read the Creating Conscious Loving Relationships by the Hendricks and so this audio book I consider as important and helpful as the Hendricks one.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

This is a recorded live workshop so you can hear and even the real emotions of people here

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes! when Alison asks women about things I thought it was only me that was doing them and I even thought I was crazy. Alison asked the ladies in the workshop Am I right ladies? and all at unison said YES. That was an aha moment for me. So I am normal and I feel and think just like any other woman. Wonderful!
