Some Dating Advice

It has been many years since I was in the "dating market", sometimes those days seem like another life, so when Zack Oates asked me if I would like to review his book Dating Never Works Until It Does,  I thought, that really isn't a great match for me, but as I read some of the other reviews, I decided to give it a go and I am glad I did.

The Book:
So…what’s this book about?
Why does dating never work? Because it’s not supposed to—that is, of course, until you meet the last person you’ll ever date.

It took Zack Oates over 1,000 dates to find his wife and he has 100 pieces of advice to help you do it in less time with more fun. Dating Never Works…Until it Does will help you get from first contact, to great dates, to overcoming heartache, and all the way to a happy marriage.

It is full of practical steps, crazy dating stories, and hilariously accurate pieces of wisdom to give you a boost at any stage of dating.

Pull up a chair, grab some ice cream and come have a chat with a guy who has been writing about dating since 2008. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and in the end, you’ll realize that for the single, dating isn’t broken it–it just hasn’t worked out…yet!

About the Author:
Zack Oates is an entrepreneur, husband, hot tuber, and author (but not in that order, necessarily). He went on over 1,000 dates with hundreds of women before he met his wife—and would appreciate any advice on how to make sure that his next 1,000 dates are with the same woman.

He grew up in New Jersey in a home with rockstar parents who showed him anything is possible—even a happy marriage. His dad is a three-time Super Bowl champion and his mom is a model; but admits that he was given his dad’s looks and his mom’s athletic abilities.

In addition to earning his MBA, he has started six business, voted Top 100 Entrepreneurs, rung the NASDAQ bell, and has been featured in numerous major news publications (Wall Street Journal, NYTimes, Wired Magazine, Mashable, etc.) for his ventures. He is currently a management consultant for fortune 100 companies. He has also started an international nonprofit working with victims of domestic violence. He has written hundreds of dating, relationship and inspirational advice to hundreds of thousands of readers at

My Review:
Right from the start I could tell I was going to like this book.  Zack's quick get to the point style of writing mixed with his wit and humor made it really enjoyable to read. There were a lot of great quotes throughout that I just loved and can be applied in my life now, I loved this one "The process of falling in love with someone is simply understanding them.  That understanding doesn't come through knowing what they they do/don't do or like/don't like, but through a deeper appreciation of why they do/don't do or like/don't like."   If people in general just really tried to understand why people do what they do, the world would be a lot better place.
   The book is written for both men and women with a lot of great insights into how the opposite sex thinks.  He writes in a way that both men and women can learn and enjoy the book.  As I was reading, I kept thinking I am definitely saving this for my kids someday as the advice really is spot on.  If you want a switch in the usual type of books you read, or know someone who could really use some dating advice, I recommend this book.
