Date Yourself: A Practical Guide to Building Self-Confidence and Learning to Love Who You Are


Must read 🏆

Every young woman should have this book on their shelf or tablet. This really is an eye-opener for self-love.

In a word, "wow". In three? Empowering. Inspirational. Motivational.

How I wish this book had been around when I was an impressionable teenager, surrounded in the toxic high-school environment where your worth appeared to be determined on how many guys you could pull or if you were romantically involved with someone. I genuinely want to see this book in all schools, colleges, universities, workplaces and libraries because the message it projects is VITAL for young women wanting to make something of themselves without feeling bogged down by the weight of social pressures to find "the one".

I wholeheartedly agree with the author. Sierra Melcher is so right in ridding the reader of the myth of soulmates because the concept is so toxic that people can so easily become obsessed with it and therefore lose focus on themselves.

This book prioritises self-intimacy, self-worth and building the relationship you have with yourself so that you can be your best, most confident you. This book covers all crucial aspects surrounding self-love and relationships, from breaking up to investing your energy in yourself through dating yourself.

There is one technical issue I have to bring up. In the praise section at the very beginning of the book, it would appear that two love coaches and an author have provided the exact same review sentence . Other than that tiny glitch, I cannot fault this self-help book in the slightest: its content is so valuable, the writing is intelligible and straight to the point yet carries with it such a friendly tone almost as if the writer is guiding you through this journey with all the support in the world.

I found this book to be o insightful and would recommend this to every one of my female friends. Thank you for bringing this into the world, Sierra Melcher!
