Ms. Ashmore writes with the tone of that girlfriend we have known for years. Her story is relatable to its core and the 5 date plan is brilliantly simple.
The book itself is a breezy read and you find yourself reflecting on things you read long after you put it down.
She doesn't shy away from showing her vulnerability and honest feelings about the whole process.
I loved seeing the real emails from her " tribe" of girls. They are so real and warm. I laughed loud enough to wake up my guy when she was in panic mode about what could have been self inflicted social leprosy.

You don't have to be single or even female to be inspired by this great story. And if you are single this is a brilliant, straight forward approach to get you back out and dating.

From a guy's perspective, the title of this book may seem like a penned chick-flick, but let me assure you that the contents are universal. 5 Dates was an easy read, and I found myself riveted...wondering the outcome of each date and chuckling at the cast of real-life characters that colourfully added to Susie Ashmore's wild journey of self-discovery.

What a concept! At some point in life, many of us go through these waters. 5 Dates will cause you to reminisce, delight you with hope, and inspire you to start your own journey.
