"Always confident, humorous, encouraging, and reassuring, Kai Nicole offers women (and men) an important perspective about dating in the twenty-first century. Building on her own life experiences, Kai Nicole emphasizes the importance of self-awareness for any woman (or man) who wants to succeed at dating in heterosexual relationships. From reminding women of the importance of dating for fun, to exploring sexual pleasure and fulfillment, to rejecting fantasies of the ideal fairytale man and relationship, Kai Nicole implores women to write a new script—their individual, personalized one—for dating. And, these contexts, as she points out, always have to keep in mind how society and socialization impact how women understand what they seek in a partner. Date Like a Woman is a must-read for anyone seriously considering how to better negotiate relationships, and Kai Nicole has done the world a big favor by offering these direct, nuanced, witty, and informative insights for food for thought." - Robert J.
