Have Him at Hello: Confessions from 1,000 Guys about What Makes Them Fall in Love... or Never Call Back (Paperback)
There's a reason the media has dubbed matchmaker Rachel Greenwald as "The Wife Maker." Yes, she's responsible for over 750 marriages, but more importantly, she has solved perhaps the biggest dating mystery of all time: when you finally meet Mr. Right (or even Mr. Potential), what "really" compels him to call back (or not) after a date?
Armed with her Harvard MBA, Rachel embarked on a fascinating ten-year research project to decipher this puzzle. In "Have Him at Hello, "she applies her business savvy to the dating world by conducting in-depth "exit interviews" with 1,000 single men, asking why they called back one woman, but not another. By refusing to accept the post-date brush-off like "There wasn't any chemistry..." or the excited, but equally vague evening recap, "We hit it off " Rachel extracted unabashedly honest and raw details. It turns out there are clear, tangible, consistent reasons why marriage-minded men either fall for you or disappear. The surprising "Top 5 Date Makers" and "Top 10 Date Breakers" revealed in this book can actually change your fate when Mr. Right finally comes along.
Rachel's goal isn't for you to pretend to be someone you're not, but rather to keep the ball in your court. By using her innovative research and tips as a guide, more men will ask to see you again; then "you "can do the selecting, rather than wondering if they'll call. Because information is power, this book will make your first hello a lasting one.
