More than a book review, treat this as a “summary” of the first few pages of the book.

“Bitch (noun): A woman who won’t bang her head against the wall obsessing over someone else’s opinion – be it a man or anyone else in her life. She understands that if someone does not approve of her, it’s just one person’s opinion; therefore, it’s of no real importance. She doesn’t try to live up to anyone else’s standards – only her own. Because of this, she relates to a man very differently.”  (c) Sherry Argov

Here are few of the numerous characteristics of what men like in bitches:

  1. She maintains her independence.
    • Men hate when women are too clingy; they suffocate.
    • She is not needy; he starts to need her.
  2. She does NOT pursue him.
    • Don’t make him the center of your world.
    • Don’t change because of him; maintain who you are throughout the relationship.
    • This shows that you have a character.
  3. She is mysterious.
    • Be honest but you don’t reveal everything.
    • Familiarity breeds contempt.
    • Predictability breeds boredom.
  4. She leaves him wanting.
    • Men think that longing is equivalent to love.
    • Don’t always meet up with him especially if it is not convenient.
    • Men like to chase.
  5. She doesn’t let him see her sweat.
    • When upset, take your time and calm yourself first.
    • Men hate naggers and you wouldn’t like to regret saying bad things.
    • Clear your head before you convey what you feel.
  6. She remains in control of her time.
    • Take it slowly especially when he wants to hurry.
    • Don’t make him think that he has 100% control over you.
    • Have control over yourself.
  7. She maintains a sense of humor.
    • A sense of humor  lets him know that she is detached.
    • Again, this will show that you have your own character.
    • Even with this, respect must still remain.
  8. She places a high value on herself.
    • When given a compliment, say thank you; don’t talk him out of it.
    • Do NOT fish for compliments.
    • Don’t compare yourself to other women in front of them – especially to their ex-girlfriends.
  9. She is passionate about something other than him.
    • Again, don’t make them the center of your world.
  10. She treats her body like a finely tuned machine.
    • She maintains her appearance and health.
    • Self-respect is reflected in how she maintains her physical appearance.
    • Others opinions doesn’t matter as long as what she does makes her feel good.

Since I just started reading the book, this is all I have so far.

This book made me think about my past relationship(s) and made me realize how much I have compromised just to please someone else.

In just a short time, I have realized a lot and have learned a lot as well.

What do you think about the points mentioned above?
