The back of the book says that it is a practical guide to men/women relationships.  I say it is a practical guide to all relationships!

Here is the publisher’s description, or synopsis, of the book as seen on

Relationships can be confusing, and communication is a huge part of that confusion. I Don’t Get You aims to be a practical, accessible resource that helps readers navigate opposite-sex communication with intentionality.

This booklet explores how God designed our hearts and the variations between men and women. Men and women relate, attach, and express themselves differently. Even what we think and feel during a shared conversation may be misunderstood.

The 5 Categories of Conversation introduced in this booklet give practical and easy-to-apply guidelines for interaction. The material guides us to fulfilling relationships that respect emotional boundaries and promote healthy interactions. I Don’t Get You equips men to protect their own hearts and the hearts of women around them. It also reveals how we can intentionally pursue the heart of one special person. Women will learn to recognize the invisible emotional ties that easily form and to guard their hearts from uncommitted emotional intimacy.


Have you ever met someone who was difficult to get to know?  This little trove explains why that happens, how to respond, and guard your heart.  It even explains what guarding your heart means.  While it was written specifically to guide male/female relationships it is useful for all relationships.  I wish I had had this information as a young girl.  I will certainly start putting it to use starting now.
