About the Book

Having many friend in the IT industry trying hard to find themselves a matching counterpart lead me to the idea of writing them a short manual in a way they can understand - in an algorithmic way. Later, the topic became more complex than I originally anticipated and it turned out to be the whole book.

Smart people rarely follow rules without a good reason. On the market, I was missing a book that would explain the reasons why and provided relevant exercises. All the pieces of the puzzle need to fit together. No dumb ideas like "If you want to date with a doctor go eat to a canteen nearby a hospital". I want the ideas to be supported by studies, numbers, hard data, soft skills, psychology - simply the complete mixture. It questions your morale values, basic life principles, social integration and more.

I hope it can help you make your life happier, more complete and by that making the world a better place to live. Just remember, the book is your guide, you are the one who needs to do the hard work.

Dave invited a couple of friends to join him on a theatre performance. Just Belinda was free at the time. So he approached the situation like a date. He put on a nice suite, brought her flowers in his bag and kissed Belinda on her cheek when they met. She had no idea what was going on. What was wrong on this situation? What was Dave's thinking?
