It’s a step by step process of feeling confident in your skin so you can reach that point of being direct with men. There are three parts to this book; Find the Guy, Get the Guy, and Keep the Guy. Matthew is an expert when it comes to communication and the male mind. He answers questions like – why didn’t he call?, How do I get him to commit?, and How to be the woman of his dreams!
