MENu Dating Book Review Giveaway


Please check out our Facebook Fan Page to see who the WINNER is!!   :)

I know we have lots of advice and book reviews for the married, but what about all you single gals out there?  Well, we haven’t forgotten about you!

Tristan Coopersmith is the author of the book MENu Dating.   She gives us a new “taste” on what dating in this day and age is really like and guidelines to help you get to your “main course” (your future husband).

Now I must warn you, this is NOT your mother’s dating book!

MENu Dating gives a fresh look on dating, stating, “THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A BAD DATE!” Oh, how I wish I would have had this advice when I was still single.  Tristan on dating; “I love dating for the natural adventure that it is.  I love that you never know what will come of a date.  I love how dating forces you to open your mind.  I love the comedy of interaction between the sexes.  I love how each date teaches you something new about the way that guys think… and what you think about the way that guys think.  I love swapping dating stories with my gal pals… But most of all, I love dating because every date is an opportunity to discover something about yourself and to become clearer on who you want as your future co-pilot on the ride of life, certainly not a decision to be taken lightly.  This investment of time and thought will have a huge payout in the long run, but the way I see it, all work and no play makes for one dull dating journey, so you may as well have fun along the way, too.”  Know that every date is a plate that will bring you that much closer your “main course”.

“Taste-test” tons of different man candidates (Mandidates!)…even the ones you thought you’d never date.  Yep!  You heard it right!  So what that he’s your “best friend” or he’s a few years younger than you.  Maybe his career doesn’t seem to fit your lifestyle, or his hair is blonde and he’s not the “tall, dark, & handsome” man you had always envisioned.  Never judge too early, and always step out of your comfort zone and you might be pleasantly surprised, or maybe not so much, but at least learned something and had fun doing it, right?!?!

Tristan teams up with her good guy friend, Todd Johnson, to give us a “guys-eye view” on dating, with blocks of advice throughout the entire book.  Todd writes, “Throughout the night, she continuously dropped hints about vacations she would love to take with me, how excited she was to introduce me to her parents, and that she had already gushed to her friends about meeting me.  While it was all very flattering, every time she did it, my insides cringed.  It was only the first date and it seemed like she was planning a lifetime for us.”

Sometimes it takes a guys-eye view to really help us realize those bad dating habits and maybe reevaluate the way we do things and the things that may scare those (what we thought was our main course) men away.

Tristan has lists of how and where to find mandidates, what kind of mandidates you are dating, and what you can do to get those mandidates coming to YOU!   This book has TONS of great advice to help you break those bad dating habits, get you closer to finding your “main course” and becoming an official Dating Diva!

*The Divas’ Disclaimer: This book covers a wide variety of ideas. There were parts I laughed at, parts I took notes on, and just a warning, parts I would not share with my Mother. :) It is a fun read and very humorous. I loved a lot of things about this book, although, from the conservative standpoint that the divas hold, I didn’t relate to or agree with every viewpoint presented in the MENu Dating Book.
