Part of the 'Complete Idiot's Guide' series.
The December 1999 issue of 'Seventeen' features a 'First-Date Survival Guide' on its cover. According to the article, "You don't need to study as hard as you do for the SATs, but a little preliminary research can't hurt". At the same time, 'CosmoGirl' was telling teens how to find the perfect boyfriend, and 'Teen' revealed the four guy types that spell trouble for girls, and, for guys, a survey of their best and worst dates. For teens, dating can be more important than schoolwork, family relationships, sports - anything - and they never, ever tire of reading about it, discussing it, agonizing over it, fantasizing about it . . .
In this book, readers learn how to:
- Ask for a date - or accept/reject one graciously
- Keep a relationship going
- Decide whether going steady is right for them
- Deal with their date's friends and family
- Handle a breakup
The book is ideal for both teenagers and parents.
