When it comes to dating, classic pickup lines rarely work. What girl is going to fall for, "If I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put U and I together!" And what respectable guy is going to use the line, "Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?"
Instead, author John Hilton III tells us that the best relationship advice can be found by reading the scriptures. John refers to scriptural stories such as Sampson and Delilah, David and Bath-sheba, and Joseph and Potiphar's wife to point out some important relationship lessons. Readers will learn the essentials for the dating years with chapters like: "Don't Make Girls Cry," "Get Out of Bad Situations," "Immorality Leads to Hate, Not Love," and "Preparing for Temple Marriage."
Referring to the For the Strength of Youth pamphlet, quotes from Church leaders, and some very funny and poignant personal moments, John Hilton III has written a must-read dating book that LDS parents and teens will be grateful for!

I like the book. I bought the book last week and I'm only on chapter 14. I'm close to finish the book and it have a good advice to use on a date, in the book that it mention in the book how you can save money and don't have to spend alot on date. We are supposed to get to know the guy we are dating for us to get to know them a lot better to find the right guy to marry in the Lord's house. Obeying the Lord's commandments.

John Hilton is a master of applying scripture to real-life. With him, the scriptures come to life in date-to-date experiences. I have yet to find a better dating book that follows the counsel of the prophet and that teenagers find fun to read. "I lost my phone number" was absolutely wonderful!
