Double Your Dating takes a strongly self-improvement focused approached to dating, meaning that you must improve yourself inwardly before you’re ready to improve your dating skills with other people.
The book teaches about self-image, self-talk, and how to eliminate the negative beliefs that are holding you back.
This can include sexual encounters that are extremely casual as well as others that move more slowly and/or have more emotional involvement. Beyond her doctorate and family mediation career, she also personally explored the SBD life and her own perspectives on it, ultimately undergoing important growth and finding a long-term, fulfilling relationship.
The book conveys the convincing message that SBD women will do well to seek true self-confidence by understanding their own conditioning, wants, and needs and by learning how to communicate honestly and adroitly with potential or actual partners.
The first several chapters provide useful exercises in self-exploration, such as jotting down “shoulds” and “should nots” of dating and identifying external sources of these expectations (for example, family, friends, or media).
