Race, Exton, PA
When I bought the book Conscious
Dating I was trying to find
out why, as someone who has very functional,
strong and long lasting relationships
with family and friends, I always made
the wrong choices when it came to partners.
Well, I got my answers ... I also learned
that, unlike what I believed, relationships
are mostly about YOU and not so much about
OTHERS. Then I joined the network and
haven't missed one tele-seminar or tele-clinic.
Thank you David and Frankie!!! Singles,

is the most enlightened book on the topic
of dating that I have come across.
It really takes a lot of the mystery out of
why relationships work and don't work! This
book lays everything out to help singles find
their life partner and avoid relationship
failure, pain and agony. Conscious Dating
helped me develop clarity about relationships
and the importance of getting my requirements
met. The audio CD has also been helpful to
listen to in the car as a reinforcement of
the principles of the book to give me more
confidence for dating. Between the book and
the CD, quite frankly, I loved Conscious

A masterwork! This wonderful book

Conscious Dating is the
best book on dating that I have ever read.
I can hardly put it down! As a minister I
am going to recommend it highly to the singles
that I know in our community. I wish my wife

we married. I believe it would have helped
us so much. This book can help singles assess
their dating readiness and plot a course that
is healthy and redemptive to any context.

This book is like having a pilot's check-sheet,
used before takeoff, giving daters an opportunity
to check all systems before taking off into
the heretofore mysterious and dangerous world
of dating. I bought two advance copies for
my psychotherapy office to lend to people.

confidence and wisdom in their dating lives.
Thank you, David, for writing such a comprehensive
and helpful book!

Outstanding Book; Terrific Balance Between
High Concept and Practical Techinque
This is the book the dating
world has been waiting for. A book that really
asks you to answer the simple question - 'what
are you looking for in a relationship?' Then
the book takes you through helpful tips and
insights to help you discover and anchor those
needs, wants and requirements.
Many other dating/relationship
books fall into two categories - simple tips/tricks
to get dates, or inner search material that's
so high minded you're still left a little
After reading this book, men
and women alike should be able to assess where
they are in their relationship life-stage
(recreational dating, in the midst of a 'mini-marriage,'
looking for a life partner), and be clear
on what they need and seek from a partner
- now and in the future.
While the book has a section
on approaching potential partners, detailed
support material in this area (scripted approaching
techniques, field-tested ice breakers, etc.)
are probably best left to relationship coaches,
done through sites like mine and others.

Fabulous book for singles and instructors,
coaches and therapists who work with singles
David Steele is the master of 'telling it
like it is' when it comes to what works for
today's single men and women. You can disagree
with what he suggests, but if you take his
ideas to heart and use them in your life,
I am certain you will find yourself in a happier,
more lasting relationship next time around.
I've found his strategies invaluable
- personally and professionally. Personally,
I'm not quite ready to date yet, having recently
ended a long term relationship. However, his
book confirmed and normalized that as well
as offered a path for me to follow for now
that I can live with! Professionally I am
definitely using this material to reach out
to singles who are open to this type of practical
information and I'm already seeing positive
results in my clients.

Psychotherapists, Take Note!
David Steele's Conscious Dating has the depth
and coverage you'd expect from years of research
and work with the topic. Having obtained an
advanced copy due to David's appearance on
my Internet radio broadcast, I was so excited
about it that I purchased extra copies to
share with my private practice clients.
Everything works better with
a system--and this book does system, all leading
readers to consciously conduct their search
for their mate. His section on "Requirements,"
exercises to get to know yourself and your
requirements better, and warm and supportive
understanding of what we all can go through,
make this a very valuable adjunct to relationships
therapy with singles. There is value on every

If you're dating or thinking about dating,
this is a "Must Have!"
David Steele has written what ought to become
a benchmark in its field. Practical, proactive,
easy-to-read and jargon free, David Steele
helps his readers learn how to identify the
kind of people they want to be with, how to
weed out bad matches before asking for or
accepting a date, and how to become really,
really CLEAR about the kind of life partner
relationship they want to grow.
This is a book that I recommend
to all of my clients who are dating or planning
on dating at some time in the future. You
can tell that David Steele, MA, founder of
the Relationship Coaching Institute is a relationship
coach, because he's darned good at it.
If you don't have this book,
buy it; you'll be happy that you did.

It's not what the author says so much as how
he says it.
This book contains two absolutely marvelous
concepts that really grabbed me. The big one
was "Be The Chooser." It's not a
new idea, but it was phrased in a way that
helped me understand, very simply and solidly,
exactly what it means to be proactive in looking
for a good relationship. Another one was the
clear explanation of the difference between
dating for relationship practice, dating to
find a life partner, and the big mistake of
"dating to mate." and how to tell
which you're doing and which you should be
Other than that, this book isn't
all THAT new and different. After all, there
aren't many relationship books that have something
genuinely new to say. But it is approachable,
accessible, and totally reassuring, which
is a huge plus in a universe of how-to-find-love
books that start with the assumption that
if you're still single, there's something
wrong with you that needs to be fixed. Thank
goodness for a book that starts with the assumption
that it's perfectly fine not to be racing
down the aisle with the first likely suspect.

Best book I've read on dating EVER!
David writes in such simple, friendly, totally
clear form what no other book on relationships
does so precisely... And I have read a lot
of them! As a coach who specializes in working
with couples to save their marriage or to
go through their separation/divorce as peacefully
as possible for the sake of the children,
I have seen how many people did not know the
information and skills within this book before
they chose their marriage partner. I am truly
impressed with it. Highly recommended! I believe
that this book will help to reduce the divorce
rate because people will finally know how
to date and mate conscioulsy. Buy it, read
it, and change your life!
