Review: Your Ex-Boyfriend Will Hate This by Blue Sullivan

Your Ex-Boyfriend Will Hate This, is a relationship advice book that differentiates itself mostly by not being about dating at all… 

Instead, it’s about answering the four core questions in life: 

1) Who are you? 
2) Where are you? 
3) Where are you going? 
4) Who are you going with? 

The book suggests that the last of these questions can only be satisfactorily resolved by answering the other three first. 

You must know who you are before you can know where you are in life. 
You must understand where you are in life before you can decide where your life is headed. 
You must also know your destination before you can choose the right “travel” partner. 

To address these essential questions, we invite the reader to contemplate the origins of: 

Their ideas on love. 
Their ideas of what constitutes the “perfect” mate. 
Their ideas of their own personal “type”. 
And most importantly, their ideas of themselves, including their own capacity to love and be loved. 

Your Ex-Boyfriend Will Hate This isn’t a set of inflexible rules for who you should be, how you should behave, or who and what you should care about because life is messy, and people are not the same. This book helps you unearth the “rules” which best suit you. Often success in life isn’t about discovering concrete “answers,” it’s about asking the questions better.

Looks are deceiving when it comes to Your Ex-Boyfriend Will Hate This. The cover looks like a romance novel and the name gives off a dating book but trust me when I say it is neither. It's so much more than a dating book. It doesn't give that over-the-top advice with rules or how-to-guides. The book makes you take a good hard look at yourself and what you expect from a future partner.  It is very humorous and will have you laughing at times. Your Ex-Boyfriend Will Hate this is an insightful journey into self discovery and finding out who you are and what you want in yourself and who you are with.

Definitely a book to recommend to your girlfriends who just can't seem to find Mr. Right or even your guy friends who portray Mr. Wrong.

  1. I loved it right off the bat. It makes sense, is not preachy, but practical and applicable. Much better than Think Like a Man, Act Like a Woman or I'm Just Not Into You, neither of which stayed on my bookshelf. Did not like the vibes or advice. No, Blue does not give advice, only things to contemplate and make the highest choice on the next time around. You are worth it.
