I am a psychologist and dating coach and I was also a single career woman at one point.  I heard many dating experts telling single career women to hide their accomplishments, play games, not to give advice to men or ask them out and basically to be someone they’re not.  I had single coaching clients who were trying to hide that they were a lawyer or doctor because of that advice.  I’d say to them, ‘But he should be lucky to have you!’

I did not see a book on feminist dating out there, so I wrote one.  I figured it would be just what women (and some men) would be needing to hear.
