    "Dangerous"

    I digged into the first few chapters of this book and was amazed it was written by a pastor. The introduction and first chapter made no reference to Christ.

    I've never read such a book which I felt so angered by. It's misleading and in many ways, just wrong.

    Don't buy this book.

    "No-Nonsense Honesty, with a True Biblical Wisdom!"

    I really appreciated Andy's honesty and his assessment of the different mindsets of men and women and how culture and the world can lead us astray. This book taught me to examine myself and my patterns of behavior and motivated me to exchange bad choices for biblical ones, as it pertains to relationships. I highly recommend this book!

    "I wish Andy himself would have narrated the book."

    But, Stu did a great job. The book was wonderful and full of great info. It really made me think. Even if u don't think u can commit to the one year plan, it's an amazing learning tool. As a mom, it also gave me some great advice to pass on. Things I wish I was told, and things I wish someone would have told the boys I had dated. And if u don't like it, as Andy wrote himself, there's always ebay lol.

    "Every single person should read!"

    awesome book will read over again
    this is a must for anyone who is single newly single or going through a divorce and is interested in entering the dating arena this all makes sense we need to get to know who we are and what we need to change in our lives before we get into a new relationship and it's all based on what the Lord wants for us and I'm sure this can't get any better than that

    "Practical, potent, and incredibly relevant."

    After a brutal divorce and more than 30 years of dating my way - I gave up. What I would give to go back in time and give this book to my younger self. What I appreciate the most is the absolute clairity on how to write a happy ending to our family stories. Here goes my year...

    "To those upset the book uses Jesus as a standard"

    I read the one stars, and they are quite unified. The book is trash the moment you realize it doesn't completely trash Jesus' example and standards for Love. That is the antithesis to logic, reason, Atheism as a whole: to trash something because of the preconceived rather than the learned, reviewed and researched. Is this book going to challenge your pre-existing views, drag in Christian values that you may not think are the standard? Sure. Does the author do it in a respectful, suggestive, religious-free way? Hell yes. If this impeccable attempt at sliding what is agreeable from a belief system into the every day person's life isn't good enough, you're dragging a filter in yourself, rather than an objective view. Here's why your filter needs to be trashed, or put on a shelf for a year: you searched for dating advice books. Your existing data, filters, applications, are not working and you are looking for help. What you've thought was good advice in the past, was in fact not. Your thinker is broken. That's a major theme in this challenge. After applying what some call "common knowledge" from the book, and being more than half way through the one year challenge described at the end of the book, I have to say the results so far are remarkable. It's been the hardest time, and the most fruitful time of my life. I've taken breaks from dating before, but not with the Stanley's viewpoints in mind. I hope people set aside their existing, failing wisdom and take a chance. A one year chance. It's been so remarkable, I don't think I'll date someone who hasn't taken the challenge.

    "Great Listen on Rules of Dating and Sex"

    Where was this book 10, 15, 20 years ago? I’m divorced and this would have saved me years of grief. This book put so many things in perspective for sex and dating for me. I plan to listen again and focus on each chapter to improve my dating life. Narrator was easy to relate to and there were many “ah-ha” moments as well as... “yeah, I’m guilty” moments. But know this, we have room for improvement. I may get the paperback book and gift to others.

    "Give this a chance"

    For the life long Christan that thought they knew what to do when it came to dating - but made some serious mistakes along the way- this book will help guide you through periods of change.

    I'm sure I will continue to return to this text until I do find that person ready to commit as I prepare to Commit.
