Publisher's Summary

In Mars and Venus on a Date, John Gray blasts off into the exciting new territory of the singles universe, turning his unique expertise to unattached men and women who desire lasting intimacy.

Mars and Venus on a Date is for all those single people who are looking for love, including the newly separated or divorced daunted by the singles scene. With the compassion and understanding that John Gray brings to all of his work, he takes us through the five stages of dating: Attraction, Uncertainty, Exclusivity, Intimacy, and Engagement. Listeners will find creative ideas on how to find their soulmates and thoughts on how to create a loving and mutually fulfilling relationship.

The singles universe can be a frightening place, and the men and women alone in this void have great need for the practical, proven wisdom of John Gray. In the same way that Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus became the ultimate relationship aid for couples, Mars and Venus on a Date is the essential singles' guide.

the most helpful book so far!

What did you love best about Mars and Venus on a Date?

i saw some one say it is feministic. uhm NO! its not. there are a lot of women who want to wear the pants and balls in the relationship. i am not one of them. i want my man to be the man and me be the woman. this book is incredible. it depicts how our mentalities work. and this book definitely helped me save my relationship with my soulmate. we have grown closer than ever before. i highly recommend this book.

Love it!

This book has been extremely helpful. I have recommended it to a few friends and have listened to it three times (wont stop there). Women always want to know the "why?" This book explains a lot. I own the soft cover, but found it more useful as an audible!

Already helping me

I've listened to this twice the first day! And it already is making a difference in the way I view things and how I react. Even though I'm not always the typical male in the stories I still find value. I'm actually going through a situation I thought I was doing things right but this explained away the questions I had about her reactions. I've switched it up and already the relationship is heading back in a positive direction.

Maybe he shouldn’t read his own books...

He doesn’t have the right inflection or speed when reading and it’s hard to maintain attention.

Recommend this book for both men and women! I love it so much, listen several times. It helps us to understand better what is in the head of the opposite gender, as well as ourselves. I felt related to what he saying most of the time
