    1. while people who aren't Christian may not get enjoy this book, it is such a great reminder for developing healthy relationships, and is a tell-all book of how to conduct one's self in a relationship. very nice :)I personally realized what it was that never worked in past relationships, and how to step through each day in dating in order to get the most out of a relationship, and not let tendencies of my X-generation determine the fate of my relationship.Don't let people step on you, this book wi [...]

    2. I really liked this book. It has lots of insights and wisdom. However, I do disagree with some of this book arguments.In the beginning of the book, the authors show their disagreement with ‘I kissed dating goodbye’ by saying that dating is a good experience for growth regardless of each experience results and impacts. However, it seems they didn't really get the point of that book and also sometimes they seem to contradict themselves.For example, they say that dating is for mature people, wh [...]

    3. This isn't the most difficult read ever and some of the points are a little "Duh", but overall – interesting points about the need for boundaries and some food for thought when trying to balance emotion and logic. Also, I'm always sort of "eh" on anything with an overarching faith-based approach to self-help. This one grated on my nerves less than I was expecting – much less.

    4. "You will have a good relationship to the degree that you are able to be clear and honest about everything.""People who can handle confrontation and feedback are the ones who can make relationships work.""Many people try to change their patterns all on their own, using willpower, discipline, resolve, and the like. Sooner or later, they tend to fail. A desire to change is generally not enough, or we would have changed before(Colossians 2:23). Relationship is the fuel which makes change and growth [...]

    5. While many previous reviewers (rightly) noted that this book covers a lot of "common sense" concepts (though common sense isn't as commonly exercised as it may once have been.), I think the most beneficial takeaway was its comprehensive picture of what maturity in the context of dating looks like. Distinguishing between deep character flaws and petty annoyances, taking responsibility for enabling a date's misbehavior while also addressing it, and handling conflict honestly and graciously are all [...]

    6. People kept telling me to read this. Fine, I did. I don't believe in this book because most of these things should be common sense. And after reading this, I believe that still holds. This book may be more pertinent if there are issues in a relationship or dichotomies in your expectations, religious views and morals. The book does a good at looking at all aspects of dating from beginning to end: from when you start looking for a partner to when you are one year in. While I'm still not a strong a [...]

    7. I really enjoyed this book. Coming from very broken relationship in the past, this book reminded me about the importance of setting healthy boundaries, the people whom I choose to date, how to deal with conflicts and how important your support system is. I think it gave me a lot of perspective and thought about moulding myself to be a better person (not just in relationships) but also life in general.

    8. If I ever have children, I will require them to read this book before they begin dating anyone. I wish I had it years ago!

    9. Tahle kniha je určená křesťanům. Je to znát z každé kapitoly. Hodně. Takže zatímco po psychologické stránce mi přišla kniha dobrá, při čtení jsem skutečně trpěl. Řešíte s autory, zda je chození biblické, neustále se vám připomíná, abyste zkoumali, jak je na tom partner se vztahem k Bohu a hlavně sexuální zdrženlivost, sexuální zdrženlivost, sexuální zdrženlivost. Té je věnována nejen celá kapitola, ale autoři ji pro jistotu opakovaně zmiňují v ka [...]

    10. This book was decent. Like all dating books written in the 2000s, it is in part responding to I Kissed Dating Goodbye and I felt like it was a little too pro-dating at times. However, that's not the purpose of the book. The book outlines a lengthy series of potential problems in your dating relationships and how to avoid them or solve them. In this I thought it was well done but I do not think it would be helpful or encouraging for teenagers.

    11. Actual rating: 2.5 starsIf I'd known this was a Christian dating guide, I likely would have saved my money. Still, the title sounded like it would have been helpful to me and it was on sale, so into my Kindle it went. I'm honestly just ~shocked~ that decent Christian dating books even exist. After all, this one encourages…casual dating! *wink*No one enters the dating world competent and ready to go. You may come from a good family and relational background. You may be a well-rounded person…B [...]

    12. Excellent book to read before you make the leap.I only wish I'd read it earlier in life and had the capacity to follow the advice within.

    13. There was a lot I already knew, so it was kind of review. Not to say it wasn't good, it was, (as evidenced by the numerous highlights), but much of it was stuff I've already heard/thought about.I had one beef with the authors' premise. They mention different times and in different ways that dating is how you learn about yourself and grow. It seemed to me almost like they were saying that dating is the best (if not only) way for those things to happen. I strongly disagree on that. Maybe I got the [...]

    14. Goodstuff. The opening really captured my full attention when it began with a very common story that we can totally relate to. And when your interest is captured, there comes the means. This book helps you to discover what you want in a relationship, what kind of partner that is suitable for you and what kind of person you should be to pick the right person and build a life-term relationship. Detail enough, the analogies were awesome, that the arguments were much easier to visualize. However, ha [...]

    15. Usually dating-type books are hard for me, because I don't always take *everything* out of the read. While not everything applied to me, I did find a lot of good reminders and overall truths.What I really liked about the book was that it forced me to stop and examine my past behaviors and think about not repeating them, as well as constructive ways to turn those past behaviors into positives. For example, saying you want your date to do something without consequences is nagging - but if you give [...]

    16. I really enjoyed this book and recomend this book to anyone with relationship problems or worries etc. This book is a book that can help you have a healthy christian relationship with your partner. I believe that in every relationship you need god to help you grow in love and life. Boundries in Dating can really connect with the reader and help the reader understand relationships and the cause of problems etc. This book really opens your eyes as you read it and you begin to realize things in you [...]

    17. While it wasn't the most exciting read it did have important information one should know when it comes to relationships and dating. Wish I would have read it when it first came out! If you practice the principles offered in it, it will not only help you grow but also attract the healthy people ready for a relationship that has the potential to last and be fulfilling. It will also help you improve relationship you're in or help you see the need to move on to a better relationship.A quote: "Often [...]

    18. Similarly to the first title, Boundaries touched on the basic elements of how to date wisely. In essence, avoid the mistake of dating someone who doesn't love Christ, treat you well, respect your family. I can see this book being helpful to those seeking to date differently than what movies portray, but I didn't get a whole lot out of it since I'd grown up reading Harris and Ludy and other courtship advocates. Still, the wise principles contained therein might benefit those wrapping their head a [...]

    19. Pedantic in tone and overly simplistic in content, this book reads like Townsend/Cloud intended it for a high school youth group, not functioning adults.Most who kissed Fundamentalist Christianity goodbye long ago probably won't choose to read this anyway.

    20. I read this one to balance out "I kissed dating goodbye" by Joahsu Harris, which it did nicely. Kind of pyschological, understandable considering the authors, but it was good for me.

    21. Solid advice from everyone's favorite therapists, Drs. Cloud and Townsend. This books feels like a behind the curtains look at what they've seen in marriage counseling sessions, and how to look for the indicators of future problems in a relationship while you're still dating. I also think it's funny how many reviewers gave this book low ratings because they like I Kissed Dating Goodbye. If you're taking dating advice from IKDG

    22. This book really brought perspective on dating that was much needed. I was able to look at my past experiences and agree with all that they said. I also learned to really look at myself and see how I may grow and mature. It has encouraged me in so many ways but also brought down to the ground in some areas (in a good way). Definitely recommend whether you are dating or not! Good for all ages!

    23. Really warm-hearted.This is one of my first religious books I read and it totally changed my perspective in regards to dating and how God effectively plays a key pillar in any relationship. Definetly recommended

    24. I didn't finish the book but I want to review it anyway. I paid for this book but I just can't keep reading it after reading the first chapter. If only I had known that the book is based on Christianity and it's about attaching another book. I wouldn't have paid for it

    25. Fantastic. I always wonder how much repetition there will be from other boundaries books - but I am never disappointed. There is some but the application is always on point. Some of these truths were spot on and others will be in future. Must read for all singles.

    26. Objective and clear perspectives. Rushed through this in a hurry, but would definitely refer back to it frequently.
