Sure, some of the “tactics” probably work, but it’s better advice to BE busy by staying focused on everything you love in life than to PRETEND you’re busy to impress someone. Every single piece of advice in this book is ugly and skewed. If you want a dating book that might help you find actual contentment, go for Charlotte Kasl instead of this harmful garbage.

Some mothers complain that their daughters never tell them anything, and we know why they don’t. Because their mothers scream, “You did what?! ” and go crazy on them, the daughters clam up.
The New Rules also assumes that all men chase the woman they want. This is not the case, I have witnessed many of my male friends watching women they are clearly attracted to, but never approaching them.
