* The best dating & relationship books for guys
* Improve your flirting, confidence and relationship skills
* Straightforward, highly-rated books
Most straight guys could use a little help when it comes to dating women—and that’s OK. At times, it can seem like the opposite sex really is from a different planet. Finding a great girl, having the confidence to approach her, and navigating the early stages of a relationship can be extremely difficult. And once things get serious, it can get even tougher. But the good news is whether you’re struggling with finding girls, flirting, dating or having a great relationship, there is plenty of help.
We’ve rounded up a handful of the best books on dating and relationships that provide some straightforward, proven tips and philosophies about how to go from being single to happily in a relationship. Some books help with confidence, flirting and conversation, while others offer counseling for making a relationship work well. Check them out below.
1. The Woman Whisperer
We all have that friend who can charm any woman right away. And the truth is, a lot of that is skill and knowledge acquired over the years. This book, The Woman Whisperer, will help you learn some of those skills, including how to strike up a conversation, flirt, and be charming with any woman.
2. No More Mr Nice Guy
Dr. Robert Glover’s No More Mr Nice Guy: A Proven Plan for Getting What You Want in Love, Sex, and Life takes a whole new look at dating and relationships that every guy should consider. The book explores how to avoid the toxic (and rampant) “Nice Guy Syndrome” of trying too hard to impress and please, without acknowledging and fulfilling one’s own needs.
3. How to Text a Girl: A Girls Chase Guide
Texting girls is a whole skill set that very few guys have mastered since texting became popular. However, it’s absolutely essential when chasing girls, so we highly recommend this book by Chase Amante. It provides clear, useful tips for texting girls with specific scenarios, personal anecdotes, and psychology behind flirting.
4. Models: Attract Women Through Honesty
Sometimes, even effective flirting can feel inauthentic. This book takes a more emotional route, helping you win girls with self-expression and genuine connection instead of manipulation. It teaches guys to overcome nervousness, make meaningful conversation that she’ll love, and start having more great relationships.
5. What Women Want When They Test Men
Women test men before going home with them or starting a relationship. But if you keep getting surprised by women’s behavior, give this book a read. It decodes what a woman wants during this “testing” phase, and helps guys be more attractive.
6. The Natural
The Natural offers in-depth guidance on picking up girls. You’ll learn how to start conversations, read body language, exude charm, and much more.
7. The Dating Playbook For Men
This book starts with how to pick up girls, and then goes beyond that with how to have a great relationship. It provides tips on key aspects of dating, such as inevitable rejection, and helps you build a better social life that’s conducive to meeting fun-loving girls.
8. How To Be A 3% Man
How To Be A 3% Man has over 1,500 reviews and 4.7 stars for a reason. It illuminates the secrets of getting (and keeping) the woman you really want, all while remaining true to yourself.
