Still trying to locate “the one”? Whip out this little book and start the interview process. Nothing says love like an intrusive interview. Mostly, these seem to be multiple choice conversation starters. The questions are pretty superficial and just wandering through this book I kept thinking that I wouldn’t choose any of the given answers. In all fairness, I haven’t dated since Reagan was elected, so what do I know?
Bottom line: if you need this book to talk to your date, I think you can safely eliminate this person as a potential love match.
What Teens Want to Know About
Love Dating and Sex
This Christian-oriented teen book spends page after page on the “don’t have sex” message. I am okay with a no sex message, but the slut shaming is awful. If you are a girl, your life will be ruined if you have sex. In addition, you will probably die alone or commit tons of adultery. By the way, it is also implied that girls have to be the moral one in this scenario since boys evidently can’t control themselves.
There is very little substance other than pages and pages of disasters about losing your virginity. Mr. Eager (don’t you love that name!) says you can prevent rape as well. Just ask the rapist to take you home when he starts getting handsy and don’t hang out with “wild boys.”
Fun fact: Boys like girls that are punctual and neat. Do you suppose wild boys like punctuality and neatness too? Wild boys, please comment!
How to make your Marriage Exciting
Hunter and Hunter
Doesn’t everyone want an exciting marriage?
The author asserts that TOTAL honesty is the key for an exiting and successful marriage. As I celebrate 35 years of marriage this month, I am here to tell you denial and lying is a much better strategy.
“Honey, that pocket protector does look cool!”
“I really do think this is the year for the Detroit Lions”
“Ice cream is healthy. It’s made with milk.”
