Hi everybody so I recently just finished reading this book.
It’s called Girl Gets Ring it’s about going from single
to being engaged and the phases in between and all that.
So I actually wrote out a list of what I needed to talk about.
Because there’s so many details in this book and I wanted to make sure I got everything in.
So yeah, I just wanted to give a quick review. I’m going to jump right in.
First of all the authors Jonathan and T Dub. Amazing job!
They co wrote the book. Jonathan’s stuff is in black ink.
and T Dub’s stuff is in blue.
The way they write together is just beautiful.
It flows so well.
I didn’t feel like it was choppy at all. It was great writing.
So there are six phases from going from single to engaged.
And phase one is of course single-dom. That is basically being single. Finding out who you are, what you want, what are your dreams, your aspirations.
I love the way they use storytelling in this book. It talked about the incomplete Irene, and how she looked for love in other people, and she was never happy.
Then it talked about the complete Cathy, who found love in herself. In her dreams. In her journey. So I thought that was really cool.
Also, something else that was really cool. It happens all throughout the book. After each section, there’s homework.
You can answer the questions or read the kind of exercises they give you. It really helps you kind of evaluate yourself and what you want. What you need to do next. That’s phase one.
Phase two is looking for love.
The main thing that stuck out in this phase for me was the jerk proof jacket. How to decide which guy to pick. How to cypher through all the jerks. And all the bad guys. I just thought that was great.
Later on in the phases it talks about attraction and looks, and what guys look for and everything. I thought that was pretty great.
It also talked about man repellents. I thought that was great. There’s some things that I do, that I didn’t know it was a man repellent. That was pretty awesome. That’s phase two.
So phase three is the first contact. You’re single, you’re looking and now there’s first contact with someone.
I really liked how they talked about the core elements of attraction and making it last. They talked about how men are attracted to women with passion, with strength, and self confidence.
Honestly. And that’s something I’ve always struggled with. I really enjoyed reading about that and I really, everything they said just really rung true to me.
If you are self confident and you have all this passion. And strength to you, men are going to want to be around that.
It makes total sense. Phase three is really about picking the right guy.
So phase four.
After first contact, now you’re at phase four, it’s dating.
This was really helpful. It talked about the first dates. And what to do, what not to do.
Kind of how to help out the situation if it gets awkward. It talked about what men find attractive, what they find sexy, and one of the things I loved about it, is they talked about intelligence being sexy.
Because it is, honestly. I believe it for sure. Especially in this day and age.
Being educated and being intelligent is attractive.
People want to be around other people like that. I thought that was great.
It talked about how to keep him dating you. Of course it talked about the big one. Sex. Because dating and sex, you know that kind of goes hand and hand. So it talked about that in phase four.
So then we get to phase five.
And that is becoming the girl friend. Basically it’s the guy, I loved how it talked about how you can’t change him.
I am in a long-term relationship right now. And, I kind of nag a lot sometimes. I’m trying to stop, I really am. And I’ll try to convince my boyfriend to think exactly like I do to change his ways and think like me.
It kind of put me in check because it was talking about how you can’t change him. So that was really cool to read about.
It also talked about communication. Any relationship, no matter how attracted you are to each other, Or how much you have in common If you do not communicate
It’s going to fall apart eventually So that was great reading about the communication. I saw ways that I could improve communication with my boyfriend.
That was phase five.
Now we have phase six. Which is the big one…
going from the girlfriend, to the fiancee – getting the ring.
It talked about space. That was hard for me to read about because I’m so bad at it.
I’ve read the other books that they have in Meet Your Sweet, and they always talk about giving the guy space.
I’m just like, I’m not good at it. I am working on it, and it makes sense really why they need space.
Anyway it talked about how to get him to listen.
And using your “kiss”. Not just your smooch smooch, kiss.
I’m talking about your K I S S.
I don’t want to give it away, but it was really cool how they used that to help you out.
It talked about accepting him and letting him know you accept him.
And ultimately getting the ring.
That’s the whole process of this book Girl Gets ring anyways.
So those are the six phases. Something else that was so amazing.
Was at the end, they have all of these extras. I mean so much bonus material.
And I can’t really mention all of them because there’s so much, but a couple that I liked was the nature of nagging. Which for obvious reasons, what I talked about earlier I’m trying to improve on that.
And then loss of passion. Because I am in a long-term relationship and I just really feel like I needed to read that and to kind of work on that. Those are the six phases and the extras.
Girl Gets Ring is and amazing book.
Even if you’re single, or you’re dating if you’re engaged I feel like this is a book for everyone. So I would recommend it to everyone. Alright, that’s all I have to say so thanks for watching.
