If you are a single woman, the course you are about to take may well be the most important purchase you made this year. When I wrote the original version of The Boyfriend Test book, it came from the deep trenches of my dating life – the fast-paced world of a single woman, who vacillated between hopefulness and heartbreak. In the first edition of The Boyfriend Test, I tried to put an intellectual eye on some very confusing circumstances that myself and my single girlfriends were living. All we hoped to understand is how to tell if a guy is worth the risk of falling in love with. Fortunately, I had some pretty good instincts and the book became a best seller.
Today, I come to you with the wisdom of a Ph.D. in psychology, as an educated teacher, and as a mother, and can assure you of one thing: Finding and keeping a good boyfriend isn’t any easier today. In fact with the expansion of technology and the competition from promiscuous women and the porn industry, creating a secure bond while a woman is still in her fertility window is even tougher these days. But I can also promise you this. I won’t let you down.
After writing the first edition of The Boyfriend Test, I continued my journey into the science of relationships. After obtaining a Ph.D in psychology, and after years of coaching women through the treacherous waters that are today's dating world, I am now offering a course that you can take directly from your home computer.
Mirror, Mirror on the wall, tell me my foibles, tell them all. It’s time, oh fair women friends to really see if we are ready for a relationship. Here are some questions that must be put to you before you can go on the offense and begin to test the men you meet. There are no quick answers to these soul-searching queries, so I suggest you take a day or so and spend some subway time turning over each one.
