Kurzbeschreibung

This paperback edition includes an exclusive conversation between Bill and Giuliana Rancic, hosts of NBC’s Ready for Love, and Tracy McMillan, one of its expert matchmakers. This new relationship show features three of America’s most eligible guys searching for their soul mates.
 
If you’re looking to get married and you’re not, there’s most likely a very good reason: you. Hey, you’re certainly not a bad person! You just haven’t yet become the woman you need to be in order to have the partnership you want. That’s where this book comes in. Based on her wildly popular Huffington Post article, Tracy McMillan’s Why You’re Not Married . . . Yet dishes out no-holds-barred practical wisdom for women hoping to head down the aisle. And this new edition features even more candid advice and sisterly insight. McMillan points out the behaviors that might be in your blind spot and shows you how to adjust them to get the relationship you deserve. Do any of these chapter headings sound familiar?
 
• You’re a Bitch: How defensiveness can hide behind a tough exterior, and why being nice is never a sign of weakness.
• You’re a Liar: How to stop lying to men—and get honest with yourself—about the kind of relationship you really want.
• You’re Selfish: The big secret about marriage: It’s about giving something, not getting it.
 
A funny, insightful guide, Why You’re Not Married . . . Yet will change your life and the way you think about relationships, and it may very well lead you down the aisle.

Tracy McMillan's Why You're Not Married, is very insightful and very entertaining. In a world where women are increasingly assertive in public affairs while expected to balance those with motherhood and wifehood, this book comes as a welcome navigational tool in the different routes to find partnership and happiness. Tracy Mcmillan's book was suggested to me with The Oaf, by a friend who thought they provided unique perspectives. He was right. The writing is evocative, descriptive and smooth.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If You Think You Don't Need to Read This Book, You Probably Do 17. Juni 2012
Von BG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was dubious about buying this book initially because of the title. But it got excellent reviews, and I felt drawn to it. After reading three chapters, I must say this book is spot on! No matter how "together" you are, you will find yourself relating to at least one or two of the chapters in this book, and possibly all of them. We all have underdeveloped aspects of our psyche that we need to work on, and this book will make you aware of those. Better still, Tracy offers ways to stop repeating those behaviors. If you're interested in improving all your relationships, not just with your romantic relationship, read this book!

Here are examples of Tracy's brilliance (excerpts from the book) from the first three chapters I read:
* Crazy is about intensity. It's about being out of control emotionally; acting against your own best interests in your relationships; stoking lots of drama; being needy, easily hurt, jealous, insecure, and/ or in other psychological states of being that men are not looking for.
* At the bottom of every crazy thing you do is a story that casts you in a victim role. And who wants to marry a victim?
* Nice is the alternative to bitch energy. Men call this "sweet."
* How do you forgive? The best way is to change your story. Change the way you think and talk about what has gone down in your life--especially the things that have disappointed you or made you angry. It is imperative that you shape your story in ways that empower you, not piss you off or turn you into the victim.
* The things that attract and bond people to you have way more to do with what is unconscious and unhealed than what is conscious and totally not a problem. The aspects of your life that you are careful to keep at the edges of your awareness are like the moon acting on the tides - they exert a powerful pull in your relationships.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hilarious....WAIT, is this the self-help aisle? 31. Mai 2012
Von Gabrielle A Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I downloaded a sample of this book while looking for some new reading material at the gym...I was the crazy lady on the elliptical laughing loudly. McMillan is hilarious, insightful and spot on.

Second only to The Hunger Games, I've never wanted to buy a book that I sampled more. You could actually just read this book for fun. (Have you ever *wanted* to read a self-help book? Ever?) More importantly, McMillan shares her own experience, and like a good shrink, doesn't claim to have the answers, but is pretty sure that you do (and suggests you'll figure out the chapters you actually need).

Don't let the title turn you off, or make you think this is a guide "to landing a guy" or "how to act until you bag a fella," in the Introduction McMillan writes: "But let's get one thing clear right away. This is not a book about finding a man. In fact, it's hardly about men at all." ..."This book is about you."

MacMillan shares about her three failed marriages and certainly doesn't think that's how women "get whole." For those of us who are interested in exploring the only common factor in all our failed relationships (ourselves) the author has a sharp, clear mirror she'd like you to look into.

Even while peddling away on my elliptical and giggling aloud in front of strangers, McMillan also punched me in the gut (the answers to tough questions can hurt when we're honest). Do you know how hard it is to do before the end of chapter 1?!

Regardless of whether or not I get married, this book offers some serious guidance toward "accepting your own dear self." And that, friends, might be miraculous, for anyone.

(PS - If you have any question about whether or not this book is right for you, check out her 38 question quiz. You'll get a sense of her humor, and the entire book.)

4.0 von 5 Sternen I got only ONE GEM from this book - but it was THE answer & I'm married now! 10. Januar 2014
Von Me - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I confess that I didn't finish this book - I read half of it and then I threw it out, along with all the other books I had on "how to catch or keep a man". All the books recommend different things, such as playing hard to get, etc etc. Well, I was tired of being single and I was tired of games and I was tired of reading books to try to figure out how to find love or why I didn't have it.
THE GEM I got from this book was this. THROW OUT the list of all the things you need or want in a man! This author advised to forget the advice to make a list of all the traits and characteristics etc that you want in a partner. She advised that you just find the TOP THREE things that were important, indispensable to you, and junk the rest because it just doesn't matter.
Eureka! After all my worrying over everything my Mr. Right had to have (meanwhile I dated Mr Wrongs left and right and was quite lonely) somehow that struck a chord with me. The light bulb went on in my head and I thought "HEY! I can do THAT!"
This was my list for my man:
#1) He & I like and love each other deeply, mutually, lastingly.
#2) He & I are deeply, mutually attracted to each other emotionally, mentally, physically and sexually - lastingly.
#3) We gladly commit to each other and marry for life.

Voila! I no longer had to worry about all the particulars! If we loved each other well, that's good, right? And I didn't have to nitpick on his looks anymore because if we're mutually attracted then whatever he looks like, I guess I'm satisfied, right? And if we're both happy to commit to each other, then we must be doing something right.
Well, friends, not too long after this eureka moment brought about by that one gem contained within this book, I found him. Actually, I'd known him for years as a friend but never bothered because he didn't fit my long list (the list this book wisely advised me to throw out!) and we have been together over a year and a half and he is wonderful, we're happy, and it is absolutely the best and most loving and fun and amazing relationship I ever had in my 39 years of life. We treat each other like gold - what a joy healthy love is!!!
So... I have to congratulate the author on her wisdom.
Her book wisely advises you to stop picking apart others and look within to understand why you're still single.
Good luck in finding wonderful love. Do as she advises!
xoxo
UPDATE the original review was written a while back... it's July 30, 2015 and we are now married, we bought a wonderful home, and I'm pregnant at age 41.. very healthy and feeling great, our baby is due in September! My husband is as much a joy to live with as ever, the love, affection, respect & fun we have together are still going strong.
This book gave great advice (:

4.0 von 5 Sternen A realtionship book that is FUN to read 4. September 2012
Von Jennifer Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I admit I've read more books on relationships than I want to count. So I'm not sure why I picked up Why You're Not Married Yet by Tracy McMillian. I suppose I was hoping for something new in the age old question of why it seems the women who want relationships can't get them and those wanting to be left alone are fighting off dates. When I told a friend I was reading this book, we had a few laughs about it, and she was checking in to ask if I had found the reason there is no ring on my finger.

This book was different than the many other volumes I have found. It is broken up into ten chapters and each one talk about a different "personality trait" or as I think of them -- character flaws -- which could be sabotaging your relationships. Unlike other books I have read in this genre this is NOT about manipulating a man. It is NOT about how to go forth with a set of rules and accomplish your goal. This book is NOT about a timeline, nor is it how to find a man.

What this book DOES do is teaches you how to improve in areas you may have missed. For instance, one area she points out is that if you have a "power job" you may be more masculine than many men are looking for in their life partner, so the author talks about how to allow your feminine side to shine. Another chapter is the fact that some women still don't have it together. Whatever "it" is, "it" can very from finances in a mess to living in a place that looks like a college boy's dorm room.

Each chapter gives suggestions and even includes a section about what others know but aren't telling you. This is also a very fun read. While it didn't make me laugh, it was quite enjoyable. It reminded me of talks us girls had in college, only we didn't know half this stuff back then.

Overall I very much enjoyed this book. I don't know if it will help or not, but it was a fun read, and for that I give it four stars!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I swear I thought this wasn't me. Now I know better. 8. Juli 2012
Von BooksAreGood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When I first flipped through the chapters I assumed I would probably identify with a few of the descriptions, but surely not all of them. I'm generally not mean at all, so the You're a Bitch chapter would probably not apply. Nor do I make it a habit to lie to the guys I see. Nor am I very much for drama. But I read all the chapters anyway just to see how "other" women were into those things. And I swear I laughed myself right into awareness of ALL the ways I AM a bitch, a liar, a little crazy, etc. These habits are subtle, they're "justifiable," but they're also incredibly unnecessary and in fact keep me from being more open to what is available out there.

It is a testament to Tracy McMillan's generosity that I did not feel lectured at, talked down to, judged or ridiculed. Rather, I felt myself wanting to be more aware of how normal it can feel to be, well, mean. Especially in the world of dating, it's like we participate in a type of hunger games free-for-all where you have to win or succeed while staying hyper-vigilant for enemy attacks. Seriously, it sounds ridiculous to write it that way, but we live in a culture where we talk pretty mean about the dating pool in which we enter. I just have to remember the last conversation I had with a girlfriend to remind myself how this is so. So I really appreciated the book's reminder that hey, I'm really a good person at heart, and perhaps I can move about my dating life with that foot forward rather than my perfectly justifiable but bitchy-tinged weariness. Dating can be a vexing thing, full of angst, insecurities, exposing our social un-graces, so let's have some compassion for ourselves and each other in it. Oh, yeah--and I guess dating should also be fun. That too.

I loved this book and I have recommended it to many of my friends. Great read. The author will call you out on your less-than-becoming behavior, but you'll appreciate that someone cared enough to do that for you.
