How to keep a man!!!!

I read articles in both the Daily Mail and the The Telegraph about the following book:

From The Daily Mail By Annette Witheridge

Male author set to top bestsellers list with book telling women how to get a man - keep slim, stay home and cook dinner

A self-help guide that tells women to follow their man’s orders if they want to keep him has become an unlikely hit.

The book, titled The Re-education Of The Female, also says women should wear sexy clothes while doing the cooking and cleaning.

'The Re-Education of the Female', by single father Dante Moore, puts the blame for women being unable to find a good man squarely where he says it belongs: 'On the female'.

Stay skinny, cook, clean, wear sexy clothes, and do whatever he says because men are here to command - that is the way to catch yourself a good man, says Moore.

And with chapter headings like 'Appearance, Appearance, Appearance', 'You Knew He Was a Bum When You Met Him', and 'Are You an Indirect Prostitute?' he aims to force women to re-evaluate themselves and - ahem - clean up their acts.

Why does he feel such an overpowering urge to do this?

Because, Moore writes in his introduction: 'I want to express my anger and frustration as a man with the women I feel are mis-educated, misinformed, and ill-prepared about their responsibilities in getting and maintaining a relationship with a man of quality.'


Moore, a computer engineer and 33-year-old father of an 11-year-old boy, insists he is doing this out of love for women.

Growing up in America he only met his father a handful of times, he told the Washington Post, but was raised by his mother, two sisters, two aunts and two female cousins.

When he was a boy his mother told him he had to treat a woman 'like a queen'.

He tried that, he insists. For two years. And he lost every girlfriend he had.
Author Dante Moore, who claims he wrote the book out of love for women

So, he decided, it was time for a change. 'Once I started being myself and saying, 'look, I'm not going to do this, this, or that for women,' the phone didn't stop ringing,' he said.

It wasn't long before he decided to spread the wealth of his realisation.

Women, he insists, make it 'much harder than it is' to get a man. He distills a man's every desire down to three basic things: food, relaxation, and, of course, sex.

And all a woman has to do to fill those desires is stay skinny and sexy, cook, clean, and do whatever the man says.

'Here's a little secret, ladies,' he writes. 'Men never really ask for anything. They command.'

Echoing the sentiments of Beyonce's hit single 'Irreplaceable', he adds: 'And believe me, what you won't do, ten broads around the corner will.'

Size does matter, he says - very much. 'The fatter you get, the more you decrease your potential single-man pool.

'Let me give you an example. When you go to the grocery store to shop, do you pick out the nastiest-looking, most rotten, smelliest fruit or meat you can find? Oh, you don't? Why not? . . . It's the same with men when they see baby elephant-sized, out-of-shape women.'
Similarly from The Telegraph

The Re-education Of The Female, by first-time author Dante Moore, advises women to follow their man's orders.

Despite the chauvinist opinions, copies have been flying off the shelves in the US.

One piece of advice reads: "Here's a little secret, ladies. Men never really ask for anything. They command. And believe me, what you won't do, ten broads around the corner will."

Mr Moore, a 33-year-old computer engineer, who has never married, continues: "The fatter you get, the more you decrease your potential single-man pool. Let me give you an example.

"When you go to the grocery store to shop, do you pick out the nastiest-looking, most rotten, smelliest fruit or meat you can find?

"Oh you don't? Why not? It's the same with men when they see baby-elephant-sized, out-of-shape women."

Mr Moore, who has an 11-year-old son from a previous relationship and has a girlfriend, says he has never found true love.

He insists all he wants to do is help women because he loves women. He grew up in a house with his mother, two sisters, two aunts and two female cousins.

Dr Gilda Carle, US feminist and TV therapist, has questioned Mr Moore's advice however.

She said: "He's never found the one, fallen in love and got married, so what make him an expert?

"Frankly, I would like to get any woman who has ever dated him on my therapist's couch."

So what do you think readers:
Is this guy for real and does he believe what he wrote or is he very clever because his aim was to sell books and he's certainly doing that and probably making a fortune. The cynical me will opt for the latter, and I certainly won't be buying the book even though it sound like a good

.........when I read the article to Embee he said and I quote:

"I'm a tad disappointed you didn't cook dinner in a pink bra and frilly knickers" and we had a good laugh.

on embees birthday he had this card I think it clarifies things in this household!!

Never been married, huh?

Humm, I wonder is this book a best seller? I bet NOT!

nk "never een married" says it all eally! I'm with you, I think cynical and he's out to make money and he probably doesn't believe this claptrap for a minute. Or maybe he does.....then the man's an idiot.

I find it ironic that he is single and has never found true love...actually he has found true love, self love, and I think that is the only kind of love he is capable of!!

Apologies for my appalling typing.

LOVE embee's birthday card!

Now, about that book, or more precisely, that Dante guy. Wow! I wonder what his Mom thinks about it? He's the kind of guy that keeps the women on the corners happy, because they would are the only women I can think of that would dress sexy and do what he commands (for a price, of course!).

I wonder if he'd have written something like that if he had a daughter???

oh yes, he is just out to make money. And why not? If people are stupid enough to buy such stuff. It's just a pity that some women somewhere will read it and follow his advice and get burnt nipples from their attempts at topless cooking.

If I had a man I might be tempted to try it for a laugh. Actually, come to think of it, maybe that's why I don't have a man?

I want to call him a K**b, but it's your blog and I wouldn't do that. Sadly though, he is going to be rich K**b!
That card is the best! Love it!

I always cook dinner in frilly knickers and a pink bra!

He's clearly not living in the real world but is living out his fantasy in that book.

Unfortunately it sounds like he's going to make a lot of money

Sounds like Dante will be single for a very long time. Never once did he mention about men getting fat on us women now did he?

I love your Embee.

Oh please. This man should be taken out back and severely beaten by a group of women.

I truly hope that all the young women in the world do NOT read his book and take it to heart. I hope they are smarter than he gives them credit.

I loved all you comments it's great to know he unlikely to come top of our popularity poll any time soon :)

How depressing that he will make money off that drivel and that he got so much press coverage :(

I show him a woman. LOL! It's not what is on the outside, it's what is on the inside!
Cute ared! Happy Birthday Embee!

I think it's just a money spinner for him, obviously that's working!

I love that card! too funny!

never even heard of the book-- guess I am out of the loop!

I think Dante _was_ being himself in his earlier relationships, he just didn't realize it - but his girlfriends did and dumped his sorry ass!
