February 2004
Helene and Gwen met on the set of the national TV show "The Bachelor," and half the nation fell in love with them as they charmed a man who didn't know how good he had it. The two women, both professional counselors, forged a strong friendship that made the whole humiliating experience worthwhile. This sassy and irreverent guide offers true stories and useful tips to help you deal with every clueless type of man, from Mr. Separated But Not Yet Divorced to Mr. Mama's Boy, from Mr. Socks With Sandals to Mr. Eternal Frat Brother. PLUS, there's lots of sex advice, a quiz, and a celebrity couple analysis. Let's face it, we love the jerks in spite of ourselves. All men have baggage. After reading this delightful book, you can put their baggage to work for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Hit Yourself Over The Head! July 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I suggest instead of hitting yourself over the head you pick up this book and have a good laugh! I was a fan of the Bachelor show so when I saw that two of my favorites had written a book I couldn't wait to read it. I was definately not disappointed I thought the book was so funny and no doubt I related to a couple of the scenerios. I don't know anyone whose dated that couldn't relate. I wish the authors well and hope there is a sequel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please do not waste your time or money. June 9 2004

Format:Mass Market Paperback
What to do when you've fallen for a jerk but you want to make it work? You hit yourself over the head, come to your senses and dump him. See? That didn't cost you a thing!
This woman doesn't have enough sense to NOT be on a ridiculous TV show, why would you pay money to read her book?

I thought the book was a quick pleasant read. If nothing else, I felt in the company of familiar situations and humorous outcomes. Helene and Gwen are good sports. Buy it, read it, enjoy it--it's 220 pages of pure sitcom humor. If it was a show i'd watch it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of paper Feb. 25 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was an extremely poor read and waste of time. Dont' waste your time reading thier lousy dating advice and quick tips. Its another sad way for them to make money, maybe even worse than selling the engagement ring on E-bay and awarding the winner a package that included a meeting with Aaron and Helene!! The book is full of useless information that many singles already know from thier dating experiences and doesn't make for an interesting read at all.

As a dating/relationship author and online advisor I'm always interested in what others have to say about this popular subject. So when this book appeared I went out and bought it right away.
First off, I think that this is a good book that most young women will enjoy reading. Since we already know so much about these authors in a dating sense (we visited their homes and met their families!), it makes for interesting reading.
Bachelor II was my favorite in the series because there were actually high expectations that this format would work. Since then the romance/reality angle was become overworked and I think Trista and Ryan finally burned us out.
But I think these women have something interesting to say. After all, they are intelligent women who have probably been obsessed with the dating subject for a few years now. Some of the highlights include:
• Look Beyond Looks: Looks have become less important for me. I don't care if he's on the cover of GQ magazine, if doesn't treat me well, what's that? Nothing.
• Pump Your Own Gas: Gwen has had luck at the self-service island. "Guys will pump gas right next to me and they'll peer around and start talking. You'd be surprised how many people do that."
• Make Sure He's Single: Be wary of the separated but not divorced. Somebody's who's already in a relationship and trying to start another one would be a deal breaker.
• Watch For Family Ties: Listen to what the guy says, about his relatives. If a guy has a good connection with his mother, it says a lot. If there are problems with his family, they'll be problems for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dating Pool Jan. 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I can definately relate to the guys profiled in this book and than some! I personally thought the book was highly entertainning. Would recommend it specially to anyone out in the dating scene or anyone who just wants a good laugh. The authors are not down on men just relating stories of all the different characters you encounter as you open yourself up to go out with a perfect stranger that you hope in the back of your mind may turn out to be Mr. Right and Forever. By the way, I don't want to get in to a war of words, this is not the appropriate place, but I am not a so called "fake" and my personal opinions carry the same weight as anyone else's. I hope all reviewers will take the high road and not resort to Jr. high antics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fake reviews Jan. 20 2004
By Ahh!
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Notice how all the reviews thus far look as though they've been written by the same person? And how none of the writers have any history of writing other reviews (even when they give their names, they're not underlined)? Please! You know the book must be really dreadful when publishers post fake reviews. Teach them that this isn't the way to sell a book... DON'T BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining from cover to cover Jan. 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Bought the book over the weekend and read through it twice. It was that funny! Went out to dinner later that weekend and my friend and I were discussing how funny it was and how those two should have their own talk show! If you need an easy, fun read to escape life's little troubles, for a short time, than get this book.
