“The ‘manosphere’ online is filled with a certain kind of red-pilled bitterness which, when it is coupled with evolutionary and materialistic assumptions, produces an odd mix of appalling selfishness and cynicism (and reductionism with regard to sex) coupled with common grace insights that you would never hear from an evangelical beta-preacher.” ~ from the book

Look Inside the Book or Listen on Canon+

Douglas Wilson writes to a young man about how he should pursue a woman. Feminism has us catechized about what's attractive ("Men should be sensitive"), and evangelical pastors have only reinforced those lies with platitudes on servant-leadership (heavy on the servant, light on the leadership). When they find out that being a doormat doesn’t attract anyone, young men often rebound into the secular manosphere and its cocktail of selfishness and red-pilled bitterness. Douglas Wilson offers his own commonsense advice, sharp-edged and thoroughly biblical—not just on how to be the kind of man who attracts the right woman, but how to be the kind of man who keeps her.

Get the Girl

Pastor Wilson's witty format and clever advice are thoroughly grounded in Scripture and the principles of masculinity God has put forth. I have found them immensely helpful in my own personal life, and am thoroughly grateful for this guide to young men.

Good, if not always on topic

Strangely enough, I found a few of the essays from the Dear Darla series to be more interesting and helpful. But there were definitely some good nuggets in the Dawson series as well. Wilson has an engaging style for sure.

Every man should get this book

Tells what every honorable man should be doing to GTG away from the red pill guys BS

Great gift for aspiring single men

I listen to the series and loves it.
Then I bought 3 copies, kept one and gave three away. A 17 year old recipient started a youth study with the book with other single men and are working through it together. There have been no shallow conversations. The book does not allow it.


Amazing book for what a man should be looking for and being.
