Janis's program emphasizes that you have to love yourself before a man can love you.

The book describes a practical method by which women can achieve lasting and satisfying relationships, breaking down the search for a mate into four parts:

㟐reparation: Janis encourages her readers to improve their personalities, their bodies, and their souls, and then to prioritize their goals and get in touch with their values before embarking on their search for a life partner. She will emphasize trust and open and honest communication in dating, since these qualities are the foundation of long–lasting love.

Once a woman looks good, feels good, and is clear about her priorities, the book offers numerous suggestions about how women can ⦥t out there⟡nd meet someone栴 any age. There will be lists of meeting ⣯s and don'ts⟡nd the pleasures and pitfalls of numerous dating–and–mating scenarios.

㟍aking a Match: This takes a woman through the early period of dating, when important decisions about a potential mate must be made, and the advice in this section will help a woman to analyse whether a man would make a good husband.

㟍oving Toward Marriage: This section covers what it takes to make that final step towards the altar, and how to keep the romance of the relationship alive forever.

Filled with courtship flow–charts, interactive progress reports, self–analysis checklists, questionnaires, weekly and monthly to–do tips, and candid, age–specific advice on sexual ethics, it will address all of the questions, concerns, and needs of single women who are looking for love.
