British dating style
With plenty of tips and tricks to win over your crush as well as decipher exactly what is going on in his head, this book is a fabulous read chock full of sage advice. I mean, come on - yes, I am happily married and I'm not out to nab a man, in Britain or anywhere else. I'm a romance author, and many of my stories take place in Britain, with - you guessed it - British heroes!What does the British dating scene look like, and of course, what's the dating etiquette that regents this sphere?
I had a bit of trouble finishing the book, because I was missing a captivating storyline, something to keep me reading. Perhaps because I'm a commoner living in the rural north of England and I'm not a sloan ranger, debutante or socialite lady.Maybe it's because I'm just more a fiction kind of person, or because I have been in a happy relationship for quite a while now and am not a part of the dating scene, but I found it difficult to really enjoy this book. It did not appeal to me and I'm struggling to imagine who it would appeal to as this is just not my scene.Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this bookthe first copy I got from Netgalley on 7th of July was unreadable because the formatting was fubar.2nd copy readable format A delightful and charming book that endeavors to make the minefield of modern dating a little safer to tread.Therefore, I can't compare this book to others of the same genre; yet, I think Lady Lara Asprey has written an entertaining account of one side of the British world of dating, and I thought it was a fun read.I really liked how the novel focuses on the British man as a unique species and tries to provide the reader with tips to start a successful relationship with one.
The author does this in a playful and fun way and deals with all kinds of topics related to the main subject.
The writing style of the book is well-paced and easy to get through, but I did think it was a bit dry at times and I would have liked it if the book had had more examples of do's and don'ts.
As a book 'The Very British Rules of Dating' already quite clearly shows us what it will be all about with just its title; the world of dating, and then particularly the British world of dating.
While some might think dating can't be that different in the UK, think again, because Lady Lara Asprey is quick to explain how British men really are a species of their own that come with their own set of rules and expectations.
Dealing with topics such as the background to British dating, the modern British gentleman, first dates, and how to hold onto a good man, the book covers all aspects of British dating and how to be successful at it.
I have to be honest and say I am not familiar at all with non-fiction books about topics such as dating, or self-help books in general.
