who is jwoww
Who is JWOWW?
  • 25 year old Jenni “JWOWW” Farley hails from Franklin Square, NY. She studied computer programming and graphic design, and now owns her own graphic design company called Jenni Farley Designs, Inc. When she was not busy with her business, she was promoting for nightclubs in the tri-state area, the Jersey Shore, and Miami. We know her more prominently as being the tough-as-nails, party girl on MTV’s hit reality series “The Jersey Shore”.
a note to readers
A Note to Readers
  • “Just because I have chosen this lifestyle doesn’t mean that readers should. I am not a role model! The publisher and author advocate safety when it comes to drinking and sex and specifically disclaim any and all liability for any outcomes, consequences, and damages (including property damage, physical injury, or death) that may occur as a result of attempting any of the activities described in this book.” – Jenni “JWOWW” Farley
the rules according to jwoww1
The Rules According to JWOWW
  • Written by Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Sheryl Berk
  • The rules are guidelines for dating, mating, and whatever comes before, after, and in between.
  • The rules are designed for women who want to feel empowered; for the single girl; for every woman who has ever been dumped, lied to, and is done with being a doormat.
on the prowl
On The Prowl
  • Rule #1: You Gotta Be In It to Win It.
  • “You have to hit the scene and go looking for him” (Jenni Farley, 2011, page 17).
  • “Or you could try to find your match online-because anyone halfway decent is gonns hide behind a keyboard and call himself “2Hot4U” (Farley, 2011, page 17).
  • “I am a firm believer in real one-to-one personal contact” (Farley, 2011, page 17).
does online dating work
Does Online Dating Work?
  • Over 10 million couples today have met over an internet dating site.
  • The Internet has become one of the most popular places for people to meet, according to the 2010 large-scale survey How Couples Meet and Stay Together (Conger, 2011).
  • "Online dating definitely works," said Reuben J. Thomas, an assistant professor of sociology at the City University of New York, who collaborated on the survey. "We estimate that 23% of the couples in the U.S. who met in the two years from 2007 to 2009 met online. More people meet online now than meet through school, work, church, bars, parties, et cetera."
  • Online dating has opened up many opportunities for those eligible, who don't have a partners available in their everyday lives (Conger, 2011).
  • The rate of partnering does not seem to be changing, but statistics indicate that online dating has replaced some offline dating outlets (Conger, 2011).
  • Researchers believe that although online dating sties provide a marketplace to find interesting people to meet, lasting relationships require offline work (Conger, 2011).
on the prowl1
On The Prowl
  • Rule #9: It’s okay for a woman to make the first move.
    • “Some guys will be totally turned on by a woman who sees what she likes and goes after it.” (Farley, 2011, pg.35)
    • “Nothing ventured, nothing gained. You don’t have to pounce on the guy – just sneak up next to him on the dance floor or walk over to where he’s standing and say ‘Hi.’” (Farley, 2011, pg.35)
    • “Ask him about himself. Guys LOVE to talk about themselves; most will do it all night if they have a captive audience.” (Farley, 2011, pg.35)
is it okay for women to approach men first
Is It Okay For Women To Approach Men First?
  • JWOWW agrees with both Dwayne and Ora, Come and Talk to Me in Essence (2007), that many guys like when a woman approached them and makes the first move. Out of the 692 college students surveyed, 39.1% they had asked a guy out; while 60.9% had not done so.
    • Many of the men interviewed said they would be impressed if a women came up to their table and made the first move.
  • Is this author properly trained?
    • She graduated from high school, but did not attend college.

Research says YES!

Put yourself out there.

dating
Dating
  • Rule #18: Make Him Pay.
    • “If he is interested, he is interested enough to ensure you eat well and get home safely in a cab. No cheap bastard makes a good boyfriend.” (Farley, 2011, pg. 69)
    • “Even though it’s 2011, that doesn’t mean a guy can’t pay for dinner. Besides, guys like to pay. It makes them feel more powerful and in control.” (Farley, 2011, pg. 69)
    • “Drop a hint and see if he gets it; it shows that he is paying attention to you and cares. So if you say ‘I love teddy bears,” you better receive a freakin’ teddy sooner rather than later.” (Farley, 2011, pg. 70)
should he really pay
Should He Really Pay?
  • According to CNN’s Judy McGuire in her article Dating Rules: Who Should Pay and When, she says that when it comes to the first date “he (or she) who asks, pays”. (McGuire, 2009)
  • Most women she spoke to thought she was an idiot and felt that men should always pay.
  • She suggests always leaving the house with enough money to cover your share just incase.
  • Her colleague, Jennifer Kelton, established her opinion in the article as well stating that “being cheap is never attractive and I would say that after more than four dates the woman should pay the tip.” (McGuire, 2009)
should he really pay1
Should He Really Pay?
  • MSNBC’s JasminAlinePersch worked with Elle Magazine to survey 74,000 online readers for her article It’s Complicated: Who Pays on Dates.
  • Results
    • About 2/3 of men, especially younger ones, want a woman to chip in after a few dates.
    • 44% of women are bothered if the man asks them to help pay.
    • 57% of women, especially younger ones, offer to pay. This is even on the first date!
    • However, 34% of them are bothered if the man accepts and 46% are bothered if he refuses.
  • “A gal worries that a guy who never lets her pay might be controlling. Gals also worry that a guy who expects her to pay might be a cheapskate, doesn’t like her or isn’t gentlemanly. But a guy also worries when a gal always relies on his wallet.” (Persch, 2008)

Both articles say NO!

Take turns or split the tab.

relationships
Relationships
  • Rule 22: In a Guy’s Mind, Monogamy Equals Monotony.
  • Guys hate feeling trapped in a routine, and for many that is why they cheat.
  • Advice: constantly switch things up.
    • Surprise him with a vacation or a day out doing something new or out of the ordinary.
    • Go where the moment takes you, and unexpected moments will make your relationship last.
article reasons for non engagement infidelity 2010
Article: Reasons for (Non)engagement Infidelity,(2010).
  • This research study gathered data from 220 undergraduate students (67 men, 153 women) at at a southwestern University, to investigate reasons for faithfulness and unfaithfulness in relationships.
  • For both men and women, they believed having sex earlier in a relationship and having been cheated on, predicted the likelihood of cheating if one could get away with it. (similar to JWOWW)
  • Participants revealed 500 reasons to remain faithful to their partner, and over 1,000 reasons to cheat.

how was the data collected
How Was the Data Collected?
  • The author collected the majority of data used in the book from her own personal experiences.
  • The author also responded to letters sent in from different people who are seeking relationship advice based on their specific situation.
discussion conclusion
Discussion/Conclusion
  • When it came to online dating, JWOWW does not think online dating works. She believes in face-to-face contact to build a relationships.
  • The research we found both agrees and disagrees with JWOWW.
  • Although online dating is more convenient and popular today to shop around for a partner, more offline contact is required to build a lasting relationship.
discussion conclusion1
Discussion/Conclusion
  • Research agrees with JWOWW that is definitely okay for women to make the first move. A lot of men find it attractive because it shows a woman’s confidence.
  • When it comes to paying for everything, research does not agree with JWOWW. The man should not pay for everything in a relationship or even when just dating. The two people involved should share the expenses.
  • Research also agrees that switching things up is good in a relationship.
does jwoww use her own rules
Does JWOWW Use Her Own Rules?
  • YES! While watching the show The Jersey Shore and reading about JWOWW, you notice that she really does put all of her rules into effect.
  • What does that get her? Her most recent boyfriend of about 8 months, Roger (who she nicknamed as “Perfection” in her book).
is this book helpful
Is This Book Helpful?
  • We believe this book to be helpful for young adults(ages18-30) who are seeking dating advice.
  • JWOWW’s rules are targeted for a specific audience, who can relate to her fast pace lifestyle.
book limitations
Book Limitations
  • Author targets specific age group.
  • Rules based on author’s own personal experience and opinions of friends.
    • Rules do not relate to other ethnics groups; “Maybe my guidelines are a little Guidette-harsh”.
    • Reflects “Italian-American” lifestyle.
  • Rules are from a women’s point of view.
  • The vocabulary used in the book is compromised.
