The authors behind the ubiquitous dating bible that launched a worldwide movement are back, accompanied by their daughters, with brand new advice updated for the modern era.
How long should I wait to respond to his text message? Can I friend him on Facebook? Why did he ask for my number but never call me?
When The Rules was published in 1995, its message was straightforward: be mysterious. But for women looking for love today, it's not quite so simple. In a world of instant messaging, location check-ins, and status updates, where hook-ups have become the norm and formal one-on-one dates seem a thing of the past, it's difficult to retain the air of mystery that keeps men interested.
Now, with help from their daughters, the original Rules Girls Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider share their thoroughly modern, fresh take on dating that will help women in today's information age create the happy love lives they want and deserve. Whether you're a 20-something dating for the first time, a 30-something tired of being single, a 40-something giving advice to your daughter, or a 50-something getting back in the dating game, this book has the answers you've been waiting for. The Rules include:
Stay Away from his Facebook Profile Make Yourself Invisible and Other Ways to Get Out of Instant Messaging Stop Dating a Guy Who Cancels More than Once Text-Back Times Chart Don't Just Hang Out or See Him 24/7 TTYL: Always End Everything First-- Get Out of There! And much, much more!
Providing the dos and don'ts you need to stop making mistakes and start finding romance, Not Your Mother's Rules will revolutionize dating today just as The Rules did nearly 20 years ago!

Awesome advice for women of all ages
This great book applies "the rules" to the modern era of emails, video chats, and texting. It also includes a lot of great examples of using "the rules" in today's more casual dating atmosphere.
Wait a minute
From a guys standpoint this is beyond ridiculous. Ladies, if you like a gentleman tell him. Show it by actions and act like a human not a robot. That is all.

An interesting read/browse, I'll definitely try some things, but as much as I want to be a rules girl, I will never be - I'm too honest. And my personality simply is head budding with some of the advice.
