There were two pieces of advice that really stuck with me. The first was Harvey's discussion of how you present yourself during your initial interaction with a man. The example he gives is a man approaching a woman at a gym to ask her about her workout routine. A woman who giggles, twirls, and responds "well I like to look good!" won't be taken as seriously as a woman who responds "well my health is important to me". It seems like common sense but I find myself falling into the first trap constantly. I'll say something cutesy and flirty instead of something with substance that will lead to further conversation.
The second piece was how to differentiate between a man who's looking for a keeper and who's "sport fishing". Sport fishing is a real problem, y'all...and I definitely get sucked into it more often than I'd like to admit. Harvey has all kinds of tips on how to identify men who are looking for girlfriends and ones that are looking for hook-ups. Once you can identify the difference between the two, it's much easier to determine how invested you want to get in a situation.
While Harvey's advice was fantastic, I did disagree a bit with his assumption that women are constantly getting played and not doing the playing. It probably happens to us more often....but let's be real here people...I can sport fish as well as the best of them. It's nice to have someone to hang out with while you're looking for Mr. Right and as long as the guy you're hanging out with is on the same page...I don't see anything wrong with it.
Have you read the book? What did you think? If you haven't, I definitely recommend checking it out!
