Why Smart Women Settle 
by Deepak Reju 
 Why do the nicest women pick guys who let them down for one reason or another? The answers are not always straightforward. For some women, the issue is as simple as not really thinking through what they re looking for or should be looking for in a man. Others feel they'd rather be with someone (and pretty much anyone will do) than be alone, while still others are unconsciously replicating patterns of bad relationships they learned in childhood or from traumatic experiences and don t know how to stop the cycle. Deepak Reju, writing from his years of experience as a pastor and a counselor, shares with women his perspective on how to assess a relationship s strengths from the beginning, how to identity possible pitfalls, and how to have the courage to not just settle but to wait for a relationship that will be a blessing to both of you.

The control freak. The angry man. The lazy guy. The unteachable guy. The promiscuous man. The unbeliever. The lone ranger. The unchurched guy. The new convert. The commitment-phobe.
For any woman who has struggled with failed relationships, this may seem like a familiar list. These are the men your friends and family have in mind when they think, "she's with the wrong guy." And while the reasons women choose these types of men are complicated and varied, ultimately, they will all let you down.
In She's Got the Wrong Guy, Deepak Reju offers a different kind of dating book, discussing the types of guys women should not marry and offering biblical reasons why they aren't suitable spouses. Writing from his years of experience as a pastor and counselor, Reju shares with women his perspective on how to assess a relationship's strengths from the beginning, how to identify possible pitfalls, and how to have the courage to wait for a relationship that will be a blessing for both of you. Using stories that single women can relate to and highlighting contemporary issues in the modern world of dating, Reju gives readers clear, biblical direction on how to have positive, life-giving relationships with members of the opposite sex.
With a strong, Christ-centered focus, women will better understand why they "settle" for less than what God intends for their romantic relationships and learn to put their hopes and find their happiness in Jesus, not marriage.(from Litfuse)

 Dating - should be easy but it's so hard.  What should you ask this stranger in order to get to know them better?  What questions are most important?  What should you do if things progress past the one or two dates?   This book is indeed a guide to getting through those dates, those relationships that may lead to marriage.  It is insightful and is full of scripture that  makes you stop and think before you leap.   That is most important.  Not to make hasty decisions.  To encourage you to fall back on your faith and let God lead you in the right direction.  Sometimes we pick anyone just to feel wanted.  We need that attachment.  We often think what we put into a relationship is what we will get back.  This leads to heartache, insecurity and a sense of failure.   Women often think it's their fault when relationships fail.  This in no way means the woman has failed.   Perhaps a little patience, to wait for that special someone, to let the Lord lead us at the right time to the right person.  It's not easy but it's worth it in the end.  This book helps give guidance to making those important decisions and reading the scripture will help you to rely on the Lord to lead you in the right direction.

I would recommend this book to any woman or man who is seeking a relationship.  Men have the same problems sometimes as women.  This book would also be good for those who aren't ready for a relationship yet! but will in the future.

I received a copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity Group and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
