The "Modern Day Matchmaker" presents a refreshingly optimistic and plainspoken dating guide to finding romance--both on- and off-line.

Finding and keeping a mate has never been harder. New rules are needed to navigate the complicated and changing modern-love landscape. If someone wants to find "the one," what are the guidelines he or she needs to know, now that online dating and Google-searching a prospective love interest are the norm?

Happily married for ten years, Paul Carrick Brunson is a husband, a father, and a rising star in the matchmaking world. In It's Complicated (But It Doesn't Have to Be) , Brunson tackles relevant questions such as: Is marriage right for my personality type? Do the rules of chivalry still apply? How can I date more than one person without hurt feelings? What is the best mode of communication (text messages, phone, e-mail, etc.) for asking someone out?

With an appealing mix of humor, candor, and real-world examples, It's Complicated (But It Doesn't Have to Be) is a breath of fresh air in the dating guide category, offering a message of eternal optimism from a man who believes in true love--and practices what he preaches.

Review title: No Dating Drama Here! A book to assist us to win in the "game" of dating is here! You will read about how to date without the drama and trauma you may have experienced in the past. The author gives some realistic advice on how to go about dating in the 21st century, that's if you want to find and to keep love and not just for the night. He gives you insight into how to attract people into your life that hopefully will become choices for a husband or wife. The "homework" will assist readers to really look for what they value about themselves and the people they want to attract as a future husband or wife. And if you do the "homework" you are sure to "uncover" what you truly want from yourself as well as what you truly want in your romantic relationships. *This book was recommended to me and I am glad I read it. NOTE: Some of this information you may have read or heard before, the author is just refreshing our memories about the information.

I found this to be overly repetitive with the main topics on, on-line dating and finding a mate from on-line sites.
