With this book Elle takes a detailed approach to dating for the modern woman. She lays out hard and fast rules on the do’s and don’ts of finding your perfect man.
There are hunters and bucks, Taggers ‘n Baggers and Trophy Hunters, and most importantly Open Season and Off Season. These main points must be adhered to at all costs, because not doing so leaves you mighty susceptible to becoming Roadkill.
Elle begins by delineating what is Open Season and Off Season, and as with any hunting, poaching out of season is a terrible offense; pain and suffering will be sure to follow. Then there is the type of hunter you want to be, and how to go about laying the groundwork to draw your bucks in. She gives you seven rules to follow to make this as easy and painless as possible, but states clearly why they should not be broken for any reason. Once you have mastered these simple techniques, the hunt is ready to commence.
I meant what I said about this being a modern woman’s guide to finding her perfect man. This is NOT your grandma’s version of waiting for Mister Right to notice you at the church bake sale. It is about putting yourself out there and building relationships with men that may or may not involve intimacy of any kind. I especially like how Elle emphatically stresses the importance of knowing yourself, and being comfortable with who you are, before you ever line up any buck in your sights.
