So my bible for the next few months has finally arrived (proof above). I now have to start the next part of the challenge : reading it. And looking at it this won't be a small challenge... 35 rules over 380 pages. Really? Does one need as many as ten pages per rule? How complicated are those rules?
I had to find out and so ,whilst on skype to one of my friends in San Francisco, took a sneaky peek. Page one sure gives you a flavour of things to come.
- Don't meet him half way or go Dutch on a date
- Don't open up too fast
- Don't call him and rarely return his call
- Don't expect a man to change or try to change him
Now, a few other pearls not in the appetisers:
“Don't stare at men...” again this seems straight forward enough. My mum told me that when I was 3 but I can see again the sanity card being questioned there.
“Don't discuss The Rules with your therapist” What?! Does that mean I need to get a therapist??? ( I am starting wondering who this book has truly been written for?)
So, some of the rules are a bit out there, but a lot of them seem just plain common sense. Unfortunately a quick overview at the content of this book tells me that I have mainly be listening to my heart/hormone/body clock (call it as you wish) rather than my brain. And, where every where else in my life I have always shown a lot of it, my love life has seriously been lacking of good old common sense. Men are hunters and woman are just another pray which, if they are clever enough, could become a life long trophy.
Now let's get started in turning myself into an attractive pray and must have trophy!
