Every month, I always enjoy reading Jake's column in Glamour magazine. Since , it's been penned by a slew of anonymous, single men who've helped countless women navigate the dating world by writing honestly and openly about the game of love from a man's perspective.
He compiled 10 of the most important dating lessons he and the other Jakes before him relayed to women that still hold true. Usually, when I read these types of books, I think the advice would only work in a perfect world. But, when reading Jake's book, I found myself dog-earring almost every other page as a reminder to remember the points he was making.
It's become one of those books that I want to send a copy to all of my girlfriends — single, in a relationship, engaged and married — because they could all learn a thing or two from the Jakes' collective wisdom. Top 5 Attributes of a Great Wingman. Men shouldn't be responsible for your happiness. My friends and I have all been guilty of saying, "If I just had a boyfriend, I'd be so happy. We can't put that huge responsibility on someone else, and what guy would want that burden right off the bat?

I've never met a woman who hasn't had one major complaint about her body, face, hair, broad shoulders, small pinkie toe We all judges ourselves too harshly, and oftentimes, it's a habit we just can't shake. But, it's something that guys can't stand! Jake writes: "Please don't make us feel bad for liking your body Who am I to diss the same body that he can't keep his hands off of?
If he doesn't see the flaws, it's actually pretty stupid of me to blatantly point them out. All of the Jakes have agreed that men would "much rather caress you than assess you. Stop trying to be one of the guys. I went on a date once with a guy I'd met online, who asked me if I liked football.
I told him I watch the big games now and then, but I usually fill my Sundays with activities I enjoy way more, like shopping. He sighed with relief, explaining that he was tired of meeting girls or reading in their dating profiles that they were obsessed with football.
