In a day and age when the moral edifices of societal values have been crumbling like nine pins, and when texting, and some would even argue sexting, have been more of the norm than an exception, Real Men Don’t Text by Ruthie and Michael Dean is a timely book that should help us to gird our loins and help us see where we have gone wrong.
The importance of modern gadgets and electronic items in our daily lives cannot be over emphasized. Yet, we have become too dependent on them that they have begun to slowly eat into the vitals of human society. Realizing the confusion and chaos it has created, the authors have offered valuable insights on how one can avoid the perils of false intimacy of on-screen connection and enjoy a true love life instead.
The 240-page book offers to help women understand just what men are thinking and how to attract Mr. Right. It provides practical advice and how to deal relationship matters, and gives a fresh perspective to the confusing world of dating.
The book contains 14 chapters:
1: Real Men Don’t Text
2: Real Women Don’t Text Back
3: Real Women and Great Sex
4: Real Men Wait for Sex
5: Real Women Embrace Beauty
6: Real Men and the Real You
7: Real Red Flags
8: Real Turn offs
9: Real Women Stop Making Excuses
10: Real Men Grow Up
11: Real Women Give Nice Guys a Chance
12: Real Connection
13: Real Women, Messy Bedrooms, and Hope
14: Real Love
The authors have treated the subject with such clarity of thought that there is no room for ambiguity. Though the book is mainly written for women, there is enough meat for men to take it home too. For example, Ruthie giving insight into what women think when a guy texts them for a date, or a casual “hello ” text from a guy fishing for a response.
The chapters are well treated and I could easily connect with the authors and their thought process. You may be a man or a woman, it does not matter, just grab a copy and when you are through with it pass on to your friends. This book must be in the hands of every right thinking person!

Now happily married, the Deans love to run, take advantage of Sunday coffee dates (without technology), and can often be spotted driving around Nashville in Michael's classic Ford truck.
