From Doormat to Dreamgirl: Sherri Argov keeps us in Check!

It’s the dead of winter. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It seems there are couples holding hands everywhere we turn. Our conversations with a few of our cherished girlfriends have recently shifted to relationships; desire for one, troubles in another, the undefined relationship issues and men in general.

Yes, we have traded stories, advice and tears with girlfriends through out our dating life. It seems that (and yes, call it a generalization, but it is based on some pretty in- depth “case analysis”) no matter the “type” of guy, they seem to operate the same across the board when it comes one basic trait: they love the chase. They love to be kept on their toes and they love the challenge. It seems the second we let out guard down, become emotionally invested and fall for the person so badly that we happily sacrifice elements of our own lives to spend time with them or make their lives better, they either freeze or begin to take us for granted. Yep, we said it.

The funniest thing about being a female is that, when it comes to boy advice, we very seldom practice what we preach. How many times have you told a distraught girlfriend to “play it cool” with her crush, to “not call him and don’t return his calls right away” or to beat him at his own self-entitled game? Yet the very next week we find ourselves doing the exact opposite.

Thankfully, there is a little secret that strong and savvy females have been resorting to for the past decade. Her name is Sherry Argov, the author of New York Times bestselling books Why Men Love Bitches and Why Men Marry Bitches. Whenever we feel ourselves slipping, beginning to lose ourselves in a relationship, being too forgiving or plain old pushovers, these books are there for us like the Bible. Often referred to pages are even marked with sticky notes.

Funny enough, it was actually an ex-boyfriend who gave us one Why Men Marry Bitches six years back and have had countless girlfriends discover them on their own accord ever since, many calling just to exclaim, “OMG, you have to read this book!” Great minds think a like, that’s why they’re our girlfriends after all.

So what secret information is revealed in the pages of these precious books? Well, firstly we must clarify, when referring to “bitch” it is not meant in the derogatory sense of the word, rather as a term of endearment (yes, that’s right) to describe a headstrong, no nonsense, independent woman, one that certainly won’t put up with any s##t or mistreatment from anyone, especially not her man.

Why Men Love Bitches promises the transformation from doormat to dream girl in the length of time it takes to read, with words of wisdom like why acting like a prize will turn him into a believer, how to convince him he is in control when you run the show, and even a survival guide for women who are “too nice,” plus a ton more.

Why Men Marry Bitches takes it a step further and provides insight in to securing her dream man’s heart- for good. Chapters of intrigue include “Make Him Chase You Until You Catch Him,” which reveals how the bitch gets him to drop his guard, among others; “Female Button Pushing: A Time-Honored Male Tradition,” which dispels why men deliberately annoy women to figure out where they stand, doing things like using another woman to try to make them jealous, making of colour remarks or testing their limits; and, our favourite, “Breaking into the Boy’s Club,” which reveals juicy first hand information men will only share in the company of other men.

We were beyond thrilled (seriously) to discover that Argov will soon release Why We love Bitches, real interview audio that didn’t make the pages of the books and include off-the-record secrets of a man’s most inner thoughts and opinions.

Here’s what we can expect:

    • Secrets men share on the golf course
    • How men try to gain the upper hand
    • What reactions he’ll secretly respect
    • What makes him fall crazy in love
    • How to keep him constantly intrigued
    • How to spice up your relationship

We can’t wait to hear this, guilty indulgence or not! In the meantime, go out and grab these gems of self-bettering literature for yourself. You’re welcome.
