Tired of mixed messages, confusing signals, and of playing the dating game? Dating expert Zack Oates has experienced it all in this comical guide that will keep you happy and laughing. Perfect for audiences in dating situations of all kinds, these encouraging steps will help you find your celestial mate.
I haven't dated anyone besides my husband for a long, long time and yet this book almost made me wish for those dating years again so that I could try some of these things. Luckily for me, I'm pretty happy, so I'll just have to apply the few tips for married couples.
This author has a way with words! Combine that with his contagious enthusiasm and it makes for a fun, highly entertaining, and educational read. I found myself flying through the pages because of all the crazy experiences, humor, and laughs. I can't believe the kinds of things he went through in the dating world before finding his wife.
There are things that I completely agree with and things I've never thought of, and this would be a great guide for those navigating the dating waters. In fact, I have two teenagers who could probably benefit from reading this. And as an afterthought, it sounds like I need to invest in a hot tub. :)
*I received a copy through the publisher, which didn't affect my thoughts and opinions in any way.*

After reading Zack Oates’ utterly delightful book, Dating Never Works . . . Until it Does. 100 lessons from 1000 Dates, I almost want to go back and try it all over again.
I don't really need a find your love type book, but I have to say reading the premise behind this one made me smile and I just wanted to read it. Plus...don't you just love the cover!
I do have to admit that even though I'm already married, I did learn things from this book. I learned about kindness, love and the author had some really great dating ideas at the end that anyone can use. And I really loved the ideas for how those of us who are married can treat the single people around us, so that they feel accepted and loved in every situation.
I really enjoyed reading this book. The author's writing style is super easy to read and it's really fun. I loved the way he had personal stories from both his dating life and friends dating lives sprinkled throughout the whole book. Some of these stories made me laugh out loud!
This book is a great one for not only those trying to find their future spouse, but for anyone really!
