    I got a free copy of this book from YPG. Definitely not something I would normally read but it was hilarious and a great reading palette cleanser. Fun and not serious. Sometimes you just need fluff. I regret nothing.

    "If someone is treating you like they don't give a shit, it's because they don't give a shit"Ouch! But accurate. Will be remembering that quote for a long time. I've realized I'm more of a Karen than a Betch- so I found this books honesty equal parts depressing and enlightening.

    Not sure why I bought this book since I didn't like/finish the first one by the same author(s)--Nice is Just a Place in France. I honestly was not sure if the first book was a satire or if the author(s) wanted to be taken seriously. This one is a bit better; kinda funny, a bit more serious, but I dunno. Still seems like one of those junk books you'd read when you have nothing better to do and don't want to delve into a heavy book of actual literary value. Read the first two chapters but got kind of annoyed/bored of it. Not sure if I'll end up finishing it.Update:I did end up finishing it. Some parts were pretty funny although 95% of the book is common sense and the entire book can be summed up in two words: love yourself. If you're not sure how to, then read the book so you know how to at least pretend like you do. Overall, pretty enjoyable book.

    While this book will certainly never be a selection in Emma Watson's Our Shared Shelf feminist book club, it provided enough laughs and betchy advice to be a worthwhile read for most millennial women looking to improve their love life.

    Bit too 'betchy' for my taste. It's like a crew of mean girls got together and are then discussing life and relationships in today's world. As the nerd who never was popular, this didn't ring with me at all.

    Such a great book! Totally hilarious, filled with great advice, and completely accurate!

    Exactly what you would want in a dating "advice" book from the Betches. Hilarious yet real, and of course, super betchy. Read the first 2/3 of the book, and maybe skip the final chapters on actual relationships since they're not as funny and don't seem to be the Betches area of expertise. But honestly you're reading this to laugh at all the horrific dating app experiences and texting fails that every 20-something can relate to. Take it all with a grain of salt, and you'll find some actual solid advice amid the jokes about bros, Tinder, and not being a #Karen.

    I was very excited to read this because I thought I was a betch. I'm blunt, straightforward and won't take shit from anybody. But I found this book to be really freaking mean and made me feel bad about myself. In a non-helpful way.There was some great advice in the book, but getting through it was hard because it was so insulting! Being mean is not funny. It can ruin people's self-esteem and I don't think capitalizing on it is right.

    Hilarious! Great after a break-up or while beginning to date again!

    Ridiculous book, and the "advice" made me shake my head at it, but provided some good laughs too.

    It's one of those books whose cover reveals exactly what you should expect on the inside. The Betches are definitely trying to give real life advice with some humour (a lot of which I didn't necessarily appreciate). Practical? Somewhat.Should you take it seriously and treat it as the dating Bible? No. And even they said not to take it too seriously. One concept that they coined which I thought was super interesting is "emotional masturbation". Basically it's when (usually female) people start to envision the engagement, wedding, kids and dogs with a person with only two dates in. This is definitely something a lot of us fall into and they provided some interesting insight on this matter. Overall, it's an easy-read and a fun little pass-time book geared towards white, middle class women who would like to fall into a certain stereotype and get a certain stereotypical men.

    I really enjoyed reading this book, made me laugh a lot and loved the way it was explained. Very simple, to the point and no sugar coating. The last chapters were a little weird to me because it seemed like it was written for rich women lol. "Should you quit your job after you get married?" Ummm yeah, sadly it's not a choice for many of us lol. But overall I think the book is great and fun and I deff recommended to any crazy betches out there! ^_^ Im looking forward to reading their other books.

    10/10 would not recommend. I read the first betches book and didn't like either but I bought both of them the same day so thought I would keep an open mind and try this. This didn't go much better than the first book. I'm just not a fan. I feel like their sarcasm missed the mark and came off more scornful towards those they were trying to make fun of. Everything was about getting drunk, being skinny, and daddy's credit card. I just graduated from college so it's not like I'm not in their demographic but like I said before, I'm just not a fan.

    I wanted something silly/snarky to read after reading some weighty books recently and the news being depressing as hell. Simply put, this book is trashy (in a bad way) and makes me feel bad about the future. No one should ever take dating advice from me but damn, at least I know what century we're living in. I got this book via the library (thank goodness). Don't worry about purchasing one of you want to read it. Just go to a used bookstore and buy a home economics book from the 1950's. You will get similar results. Boo.

    Made me cringe at times with the fat jokes, thinly veiled eating disorder references and drug use mentions. Parts of it are fun. Like most dating/relationship advice books, most of this advice is useless but an easy read on how Betches can navigate the dating scene. At least the book is on brand. I follow the authors on Instagram and it reads just like their memes.

    The entire time I was reading this book, I felt a mix of embarrassment and wonder. One the one hand, how embarrassing to read a book about dating and on the other hand, HOLY SHIT THIS BOOK MAKES SO MUCH SENSE. At the end, I wasn't embarrassed anymore. I felt like a bomb ass betch ready to conquer the world, with or without a man.

    This book is witty and insightful. It's a quick read and well organized to address how to approach the different phases of dating in this day and age. From the initial 1-6 dates with a person to pre-nups for marriage, this Beetch book tells you how to handle it all! :)

    Protams, šī grāmata nav uztverama pārāk nopietni. Trīs zvaigznes vairāk tiek dotas par humoru, kura grāmatā ir pietiekami, lai tā būtu viegla vienas dienas lasāmviela. Lai vai kā, šur tur var atrast arī pa kādam noderīgam padomam.

    I added this to the 'humour' collection on my Kindle... as someone who has always appreciated books on etiquette, this is not a completely horrible book for navigating an over-30 dating life. It's got some useful tips, if you're really having a what-do-I-do? type of situation. The Betches preach confidence above all else. But it's a strange brew: 'marketplace' feminism mixed with post-feminist entitlement, where (seemingly white) classism and beauty privilege reign. Maybe they're being ironic? The Betches have a darkly funny Instagram feed, which I enjoy, but you'll need a strong dose of positivity to counter the reflection of our culture this book provides.

    took me a year to read because it couldn't to keep my attention, great book to have if you are waiting for an apt.

    I am too old a soul for this book, and apparently, for dating.

    Definitely a book I would reach for whenever I need a laugh or a break from a heavy book. Highly recommend due to how comedic it is!

    Funny, sassy but a good wake up call if you are at that stage of your relationship.

    I'm definitely too nice to be considered a betch but I have some betchiness in me. The book is good but it's not something that most of us women don't already know about dating. A fun read though.

    This book was advertised as a satirical take on the self-help dating books of our time. I read this book with the hopes of it being something funny, and “betchy”. I was not looking for an actual self-help book. Ironically The Betches comment on the movie He’s Just Not That into You saying “We’re here to talk about you, the rule (a term that was pretty useful in He’s Just Not That into You but then negated when they threw out all their valuable dating advice and dubbed Ginnifer “the exception.” Ugh.)” This is interesting to me because that was exactly how I felt about that movie and unfortunately it is exactly how I feel about this book.What started as a fun, snarky read about all the advice we’re given as ladies in the dating world and how a “Betch” would go about it instead of a “nice girl” ended as actual dating advice. Advice, I might add, that was not much different than other sappy self-help dating books. There are some pieces of advice that are so outlandish that I can only hope that it was their attempt at being funny (Back-burner Bro). There were, however, pieces of advice that were spot on and amusing to read and evaluate in myself as a dater.Overall, I would not say this book was a waste of my time. It was a fast, easy read. This is what my mom would call a “beach read.” She uses this term to define any book that doesn’t require much thought to follow and gives you something to do between the waves. It was simply not at all what I was expecting by reading the synopsis and the first few paragraphs of the intro. I was expecting a more sarcastic, snarky, cynical, and realistic (bordering on pessimistic) view on dating in today’s world.
