    Really enjoyed this book! Candice has a great outlook on modern dating and a positive approach to being more open and intentional in your love life. I especially loved the stories about singles who are living their best life. This book helps you learn to trust you instincts more, open up to new dating possibilities and stop letting the fear of rejection get in your way.

    Overall an okay read. Normally I criticize these kinds of books noting that they should have remained a blog or a series of magazine articles but this book was compiled and structured well (at least compared to others I have read). The book definitely had some solid points but the repetitive and sometimes choppy writing style didn't work for me despite the collection of interesting points. I also felt like some of the examples didn't quite work with the point or theory being discussed. Also appa Overall an okay read.

The book definitely had some solid points but the repetitive and sometimes choppy writing style didn't work for me despite the collection of interesting points. I also felt like some of the examples didn't quite work with the point or theory being discussed. Also apparently, everyone is Jalili's "friend". Another repetitive factor that irked me was the use of "with that number jumping up to... for ages 18-34" stats. The differences in percentages were often small and in the grand scheme of things it's possible those differences weren't even statistically significant. It would have been more effective if the specific stats were only shared for major differences to really make an impact and show their value. I have to say, between the pages of 1-208 annoyance with this sentence structure jumped up to 100! I'm not sure I'd recommend this book. If you're sitting in a waiting room and it is the only content around then sure, skim through it, but given COVID I doubt you'll have the waiting room opportunity/experience. That being said, I did use the beginning of this book to convince my friend to text a girl he likes.

    So… I’m not going to lie, this reads like an elongated Cosmopolitan article. The content is HIGHLY targeted to straight women in their twenties, uses excessive internet/texting acronyms, and repeatedly demonstrates what not to do via a fictional “Eunice” character (spoiler alert: THIS GIMMICK GETS OLD FAST). The author’s message is fully encapsulated in the title and I’m not sure further reading is necessary. The tone is kind of flippant and I am suspect of the advice given.

The author’s message is fully encapsulated in the title and I’m not sure further reading is necessary. The tone is kind of flippant and I am suspect of the advice given. While it can be freeing to express how you feel about someone and it is important to value your own time, I felt like the author encourages people to come on too strong too soon in many instances. A lot of dating research shows that “playing the game” (e.g., not being too available, not getting caught up too fast) actually generates interest and is more likely to lead to a relationship, as frustrating as that reality is. Honestly, I can see both points of view here. However, I will always distrust a book that specifically recommends ghosting someone! If there is any silver lining, the author does include numerous examples of how to reframe our negative thoughts about dating into more balanced and healthy perspectives.

    This book was written to absolute perfection, offering thorough research backed by statistical data. Jalili discusses the most pertinent issues of modern dating, addressing an array of problems and setbacks for women and men, young and old, single and in relationships. I can’t recommend this book enough and what a positive effect it had on my mental health. Do you yourself a favor and let this book give you the confidence you may not even know you needed!

    This was really cute! its filled with little lists and illustrations that broke up the blocks of text. I would say that as someone who does struggle with anxiety around dating, I don't think I read a whole lot in here that I don't already know, but doesn't mean it wasn't an enjoyable read and a good reminder to put yourself out there. 3 stars! *disclaimer* I did receive this arc as part of a giveaway but that in no way impacts the review.

    I really liked this book in terms of feeling empowered to be yourself. However the author relied very heavily on a survey of 254 women as evidence for what women do and experience. I’m not a statistician but that feels like such a small sample to me. I appreciate the use of evidence and also personal stories and I understand because I’ve experienced it too, but the heavy reliance on that survey was a sticking point for me.

    TYSM to NetGalley for my copy of this book. This book accomplishes a lot of things, but I think the biggest and most important is that it shows us that we're not alone. The crazy thoughts we have and actions we sometimes take (or don't take) are things that so many others do. Candice Jalili is the friend we all need in our lives, pushing us to be our most authentic selves and to never settle for anything less than we deserve. TYSM to NetGalley for my copy of this book.

    Read this book in two days after hearing Candice talk on Girls Gotta Eat Podcast. She gives great advice pulling from her own experience and others that she interviewed for the book. I loved that she always reinforced the idea that this book is NOT about "getting the guy" but it's about female empowerment and taking the anxiety out of dating.

    This modern dating guide certainly used lots of "millennial speak", which I found awkward, endearing, and amusing in equal parts. Much of the book consists of self-empowerment language that can certainly be overdone, but I think the core message is worth understanding.

    Good for Younger Singles I recommend this for younger singles (those in their 20s or early 30s), especially those who have a hard time with dating anxiety or feeling like they have to be somebody else. This book really emphasizes authenticity.

    What a fun book on modern dating!! I felt much calmer knowing there were other ladies out there that felt the same way I did about dating, boys and “what-ifs”. I loved diving into Candice’s steps and feel confident and ready for the future.

    Did I cringe reading some of this yes. But overall it was a pretty interesting read and would recommend to friends. I like the integration of personal stories, advice, and actual statistics.

    This is a great book that will help you let go of any dating-related stress & anxiety by accepting that for right person who just being yourself is more than enough.

    Friendly and empowering take on modern dating for girls. Honestly, I really wish I had read this dating book much sooner; the intended audience is slightly younger than my 25, but this book was still a great reminder to my dating self. Just Send the Text is a breath of fresh air in the dating & relationships nonfiction genre in that while it is a guide, it actually offers none of the "Ten Things To Do To Get The Guy" kind of advice. It's not about how to act and what steps to take to get him/her/t Friendly and empowering take on modern dating for girls.

Just Send the Text is a breath of fresh air in the dating & relationships nonfiction genre in that while it is a guide, it actually offers none of the "Ten Things To Do To Get The Guy" kind of advice. It's not about how to act and what steps to take to get him/her/them. Instead, Candice emphasizes everything that's wrong with this kind of advice: by following a certain set of rules in dating, we don't listen to what we actually want and as a result, we focus on the other person and not at all on ourselves. We care whether they will like us, but don't stop to consider whether we like them that much. Most importantly, we don't give the other person the chance to see the REAL us, aka the person they would potentially end up dating! Just Sending The Text is not always a literal text, but rather taking the action we're dying to take, but are afraid of being rejected or looking uncool. As a 25-year-old woman, I saw myself in Candice's so many of examples: being anxious, trying to play a role, trying to be chill and cool. I liked it a lot as a reminder that I'm awesome and if someone doesn't like me, it's not something I should try to change myself for. *Thank you to the Publisher for an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
