Description

The popular relationship guru blows the whistle on perpetual bachelors, with wise words for women seeking nuptial-minded men.
A male radio host once chided William July for being so open about the playboy mentality. "Man, stop giving away all of our secrets to the women," the host said. But July, who has been happily married for six years, believes that this kind of secrecy and game playing is harmful to everyone. A self-proclaimed former "General in the Bachelor Corps," July now openly reveals the tricks of the bachelor trade to help women find guys who are genuinely ready for commitment. "Confessions of an Ex-Bachelor" delivers no-nonsense dialogue on:
- The three stages of bachelorhood, and how to tell whether your date will ever graduate past groom-a-phobia
- How to hold your man accountable and stand your ground--"without" making him feel trapped
- Overcoming cultural cues that make men see marriage as a life in chains
- Where to find your future groom
- How to translate a bachelor's double-talk
- Getting past the stereotypes of divorced men, "nice guys," and how men feel about being stepfathers
A must read for every single woman who wonders what her guy is "really" thinking, "Confessions of an Ex-Bachelor" is full of revelations and rewarding advice.
