The Carrie Diaries

Cyber-Dating Expert Reading Room

I was happy to see that Candace Bushnell released a book just a month before the Sex and the City 2 film. In The Carrie Diaries, Bushnell shares with us what life was like for Carrie Bradshaw during her senior year of high school.

You’ll read about the about Carrie’s first glimpse in becoming a writer, see how her friendships developed, and get a glimpse about her life pre-SATC.

Although the book is targeted to young adults, fans of Sex and the City of all ages?will enjoy hearing about the earlier years in the life of Carrie Bradshaw. It’s a great summer read and I’m please to add it to the Cyber-Dating Expert Reading Room.

Today my friend and fellow dating and relationship author, Andrea Syrtash is celebrating. It’s the release date for her new book, He’s Just Not Your Type (and that’s a good thing): How to Find Love Where You Least Expect It, and we’re joining in on the festivities.

Andrea’s dating and relationship advice comes from an authentic point of view. Her values are completely in line with what we talk about at Cyber-Dating Expert. She uses her own personal story of how her husband Michael, who was not her type. Now, she is happily married and discusses with great enthusiasm about the benefits of dating and mating with a man you originally thought was not your type.

Andrea calls these men the NTs. NTs come in a few flavors including:

  • DNT – Departure Non-Type
  • SNT – Superficial Non-Type
  • CNT – Circumstantial Non-Type

Flirtexting – How to Text Your Way Into His Heart


After a fun and fabulous interview with authors Debra Goldstein and Olivia Baniuszewicz?on Ask the Cyber-Dating Expert Radio Show, I’m pleased to add their dating advice book, Flirtexting: How to Text Your Way to His Heart to the Cyber-Dating Expert Reading Room.

Their mantra in the book is, “We date, ?therefore we text.” Flirtexting, according to the two, has become the new “first step” in dating.

Deb and Liv describe Flirtexting as “Any text message sent between you and a boy you would like to date or are currently dating (i.e., someone you would like to make out with or are currently making out with). These texts are normally comprised of the flirty, witty banter that you throw back and forth with each other that typically leads to a date and, if you?re lucky, then some.”

If you aren’t sure who should make the first move in the electronic generation, then this book is for you. You’ll learn about some fun and flirty ways to communicate with the opposite sex.

Some questions you’ll get answered include:

  • Should a woman send a text message to a man to thank him after a date?
  • What are the benefits of texting while dating?
  • What are the do’s and don’ts of texting
  • What is sexting and should you press the send button?

You’ll also find out which of the two authors actually was asked to the prom via text message.

It’s a fun and easy book to read and fits in nicely with our theme of dating in a Web 2.0 World.

Act Like a Lady – Think Like a Man


It’s the number one relationship book online and in the bookstores. He’s been on Oprah. He’s just been named a special correspondent on parenting and relationships for Good Morning America. It’s been out since the beginning of the year, and it just made it into the Cyber-Dating Expert Reading Room.

You may be wondering, what took it so long? When ABC announced last week that Harvey would be joining the team, I finally went out and purchased his best-selling book.

You may have already read the book. But if you have not, I recommend Steve Harvey’s book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment?for all the women who really want to know how men think.

It’s a simple book with a basic no brainer approach to understanding the male species. Harvey has his 90-day probationary rule and advises women not to “put out” before that time. He says you are worth the wait. He calls it the “cookie.”

The book helps women get into the mind-set of a man by listing three important facts on how a man looks at himself.

  • Who he is
  • What he does
  • How much money he makes

Harvey also adds three things that every man needs in a relationship from a woman.

  • Support
  • Loyalty
  • The “Cookie”

I call the “cookie” dessert. From a male’s standpoint, it’s the reward for his hard-working dollars. If a woman isn’t providing sex to her man, Harvey claims he WILL go elsewhere. It’s a simple tough-love formula and a terrific book.

The Truth About Men Will Set You Free


It was with great anticipation that I waited for the arrival of Dr. Pat Allen’s latest book, The Truth About Men Will Set You Free: …but first it’ll p*ss you off!?I am a huge fan of her best-selling book,?Getting to ‘I Do’?and have attended her workshops.?

The subject of science in mating and relationships is a huge topic right now. Many online dating sites have personality profiling, there is gene testing, and yet we are still so confused about how to mate successfully.?

In her book, which is co-authored by Don Schmincke, Pat Allen defines the rule of mating. She stated that guys use “things” to prove love and girls use “love” to prove things. She goes further by stating that “love is what females give sex for and sex is what guys give love for.” Does it sound confusing? Not if you read this book. According to Dr. Pat Allen, this is why guys can program the VCR better than women. Dr. Pat Allen has been studying this for over 30 years. She should know.

She encourages women to let their estrogen roll and to capitalize on body language with these tips:

  • Eyes: Paint them.
  • Lips: Make them red.
  • Clothing: Stress the female shape.
  • High Heels: Use’em.
  • Breasts: Expose them.
  • Exercise and Diet: You know this.

Pat tells women, ?”You might let your guy know that he could have a better chance of whispering “sweet nothings” to you in your left ear versus your right. Then again, you might not want to.”

Why Hasn’t He Proposed?


Have you ever found yourself in the terrible position where you have given the man of your dreams the big ULTIMATUM? Unfortunately, I did once, and yes it did backfire on me. Since that time, I learned my lesson well, and know it will never happen again.

While I was on a recent trip to New York, I had the pleasure of meeting Matt Titus and Tamsel Fadel, the authors of this terrific book, Why Hasn’t He Proposed?: Go from the First Date to Setting the Date.?I love their style and thought I would share it with you in this month’s Reading Room on the Cyber-Dating Expert site.

Matt Titus and Tamsen Fadel are relationship experts and their book will hit home for many. They are happily married and the duo has appeared as relationship experts in Lifetime’s ?”Matched in Manhattan.”

This book is this commonsense guide on if, when, and how you can get your man to pop the question.

In this book you will learn how to:

  • Determine if he’s truly “Mr. Right”-or hopelessly “altarphobic”
  • Figure out why he’s afraid to get married-and how to calm those fears
  • Get him to propose without nagging, crying, or issuing ultimatums
  • Start your relationship off on the right track

This guide is shows you the perfect, no-pressure way to take your love to the next level-with “he says, she says” insights, relationship “red flags,” long-term secrets for lasting success, and real-life stories from the author’s famous dating service. It even includes a relationship timetable that will tell exactly when to take the next step-straight down the aisle to the marriage of your dreams.

I recommend this book to readers, and wonder if my life might have been different if it was available years ago. But then again, life is filled with lessons learned.
