This book explores the whole man; his make-up, nature and spirituality. The author polled single and married men from all walks of life on what gets their attention; she discovered their wants were pretty the same. The biggest shocker came from Christian men; they want a godly mate, but a beautiful woman! They want a woman who is sold out to the Lord but still in possession of all the attributes they expect to find in a woman.
Michelle shared countless examples on paying attention to details in relationships; she gave clarity on what is appropriate for singles versus married women. One of the most captivating techniques the author adopted was using “the five-senses as tools to getting your dream man’s attention. There are two basic questions every single woman must ask:
- How do I get the attention of that special someone?
- How do I keep the attention of the one I love?
Let’s consider the functions of the five senses as used by the author in relation to getting the man’s attention.
