On Sunday night, I headed to my friendly neighborhood Barnes & Noble, sat in the “Self Improvement” (no longer Self Help) aisle, and flipped through dating books for guys. Even though there are far fewer of these kinds of books than there are dating books for women, they are still there, as were a whole host of titles that will make you reconsider your hunt for a relationship. If that’s what you’re after. After scanning these, you might not be:
The Sex-Starved Wife: What to Do When He’s Lost Desire by Michele Weiner Davis
Why Did I Marry You Anyway? Overcoming the Myths That Hinder a Happy Marriage by Barbara Bartlein
How Could You Do This to Me? by Jane Greer and Margery D. Rosen
How To Catch Him With His Pants Down: and Kick Him in the Assets by Vinny Parco with Michael Benson
After the Affair: Healing the Pain and Rebuilding Trust When a Partner Has Been Unfaithful by Janis Abrahms Spring and Michael Spring
Having an Affair?: A Handbook for the “Other Woman” by Sarah J. Symonds
It’s So Hard to Love You: Staying Sane When Your Loved One Is Manipulative, Needy, Dishonest, or Addicted by Bill Klatte and Kate Thompson
Kinda wants to make you throw out all your Disney DVDs, doesn’t it?
I also came across this book, which I think has a cover worth posting in a larger size:
That would be Don’t Be That Girl: A Guide to Finding the Confident, Rational Girl Within by Travis L. Stork. You’d think a lot of this kind of stuff would be obvious to the fairer sex, but I’ve seen plenty of these ladies out in the wild. No wonder guys need dating books, too.
