“…this is so powerful, it’s almost scary how many things have progressed with us!”
My name is Janet Petramala, my friends call me Janmarie. I am an Emergency Medical Technician and I live in beautiful Northern Idaho about 300 miles from the Canadian border. I am totally a small town, redneck girl.
I ordered Make Every Man Want You and have since read it just about every night.
When I first read it I was totally amazed at how quickly it changed my whole outlook on relationships and life in general. What possessed me to order the book was another break up. I have never had any problem getting a man, and during the course of dating, we would have incredible fun. It always seemed that either when I got too serious or when he got too serious, the relationship would drizzle away to nothing, the fun stuff would end and a break up would occur. I finally had enough of it so I bought your book.
I discovered exactly what I was doing wrong, taking responsibility for it instead of blaming the men I dated and put a stop to trying to control the man or the relationship. Ha! What a concept!
Anyway, I am in a new relationship, relaxed, not putting any undue pressure on him or myself. I am just being my irresistible self and allowing him to be the one taking the relationship to each new level. I am just along for the ride so to speak, or at least that is the way it may seem to the outside world but I know that my actions and the way I think about him and the relationship is really what is causing him to grow deeper in love with me. In fact this is so powerful it is almost scary how things have progressed between us. We are totally opposite but yet have the same views and ideas and goals. I am a fiery sign and he is an earth sign. That seems to be working in our favor. He keeps me a little more grounded and I help him to “dream a little dream.”
But I have to tell you how we met because we are from different countries. He is Canadian and every year he and his golfing buddies come to the US to golf for a week. We happened to be in the same redneck bar at the same time. I was there to sing Karaoke, it was a sport I got into to help boost my confidence. We met and have been together since. We travel back and forth to see each other, he is actually only 8 hours away from me, and he is almost at the point of asking me for a more committed relationship.
So if it wasn’t for reading your book, and becoming aware of how I was operating in my life and relationships with men, I am sure I would have killed this relationship by now.
Changes I have noticed in myself are that I am much more relaxed, living in the moment, meeting life as it shows up for me and allowing everything to be as it is without resisting it.
Life is good, and thank you for writing this book!!
Best wishes, Janmarie Petramala, Idaho
“I feel like I finally have power over my own life again, and I couldn’t ask for anything more!”
My name is Rachel and I’m a graphic designer/aspiring voice actor from New York City. I was frustrated with the fact that I didn’t seem to know how to meet and engage men, and I bought Make Every Man Want You after remembering how I always loved taking Marie’s classes at Crunch–not just because they were an awesome workout, but because her positive energy always spilled over and put me in a great mood, no matter how crappy my day might have been up to that point. I wanted to know how to create that same kind of energy in my own life (and, of course, to make every man want me–haha)! After reading the book I feel like I finally have power over my own life again, and I couldn’t ask for anything more.
Until recently, I saw myself as a complete failure: irreversibly out of shape and struggling against an old eating disorder, teetering between careers, seemingly ignored by men (and mistreated by the few who actually have dated me), incapable of accomplishing anything I really wanted for my life, etc. I felt deep down that I WASN’T truly this miserable person, but I grew all the more frustrated when each time I set goals or tried to change things in my life, I ended up sabotaging myself once again–which in turn cemented my feelings of being a failure.
It wasn’t until I read Make Every Man Want You that I realized HOW I THINK is even more important than what I do. The book showed me that I can set goals from now till kingdom come, but if I don’t change my attitude and my way of thinking about myself and the people around me, nothing else will change either. I finished the book only recently, but I can already see how much it’s affected the way I do pretty much everything and how it’s brought to light behaviors I didn’t even realize I’d been practicing:
- I was writing an email to an ex who’s now a friend; instead of spending 30 minutes trying to construct the perfect witty message like I normally would, I wrote a couple of sentences and sent it off without a thought. As I hit send, I realized that I no longer felt the desire to manipulate how this man sees me by trying to be some perfect version of myself that doesn’t really exist–and even more importantly, that I’m no longer relying on his attention or his opinion of me (or that of any other man) to feel good about myself.
- I had an argument with my mother over finances, and instead of once again letting myself spiral into feeling helpless or overwhelmed by the fact I have been relying too much on my family for financial help lately, I sat down and made a list of all the ways I can realistically take action to make more money and curb unnecessary spending.
- Instead of letting feelings of insecurity and feeling “fat” ruin my night or put me in a sour mood recently, I put on a dress I feel great in, spent extra time on my hair and makeup and focused on catching up with friends I hadn’t seen in a while and engaging new people (including a few cute guys) instead of obsessing about my appearance.
- These may not seem like huge, life-changing steps, but as someone who’s been trapped in a cycle of feeling bad about myself for my entire teenage and adult life, they–along with countless other “small victories”–mean the world to me. I’ve started to see these everyday opportunities as building blocks–with each small success I feel like my confidence gets bigger and bigger. And for the first time in a long time, I truly believe that when the time is right a great man will appear in my life–but in a lot of ways I’m even more excited about taking control of my own life and living every day like it matters, for myself…and somehow I feel like that’s the whole point of the book.
Thanks so much for writing this, and I look forward to learning even more from “Magical Moments!”

“I’m happier and richer than ever before…”
Make Every Man Want You is a great book. I love every part of it. My life before reading the book, was a mess. I am reading it almost every day, because it stays in my bag all the time. I feel really strong and really happy about myself and the world around me. I am happier and richer like never before. I can not explain exactly what a wonderful book this is. Every woman needs to read it. I have listened to your interviews and I can say that you are my favorite coach. This book really changed my life in a good way and this is something every woman needs to know. I strongly recommend this book.
All the best Marie!

“Marie has literally changed my life…”
Marie has literally changed my life. Her book is straightforward, well written and fun.
She has a way of presenting things that really opened my eyes in a no-nonsense manner. Working with the principles presented in her book I have turned around my work situation and my perception and expectations of my interactions with men: past, present and future. I have slowly read, re-read and applied all the principles in the book each time going back and revising. I used it as a veritable “manual” for a new skin that I’m getting used to. Awareness, the effects of resistance and attention to details have been the main aspects that have helped me get out of a slump and get myself in gear to expect the best and start receiving it. Most of all, her very positive philosophy has enabled me to unknot and drop the rucksack of anger that I’ve been hauling about.
BEFORE reading the book, I was frightened and dreaded the future as a repetition of negative things in my past. My life and interaction with people was painted as a victim, and I inevitably suffered, felt lost and frustrated in all my relationships with men.
I have noticed that since reading & applying the book that I feel more positive, I met a nice man whom I’d overlooked before, I’ve now got good relationships with my colleagues at work who enjoy and seek to spend time with me rather than avoid me, and I am meeting more people and enjoying the time spent with them more. Finally, I have men coming out of the woodwork to ask for my phone number, seek to spend time with me, be kindly, offer me flowers just for being me – no strings attached!
I have methodically applied ALL the principles in the book in a holistic manner. Most of all, I have read & re-read the book to refresh my memory and not take any kernel of wisdom for granted. THIS STUFF WORKS, but it must be applied steadily & regularly. Just like any exercise plan, you can only get in shape if you work out regularly & low & behold, you and the people around you suddenly realize that you’re in fantastic shape! 🙂
I can honestly say that for the 1st time in my life I’m not calling psychics to see if a guy likes me, I’m not seeing a therapist anymore, I FINALLY feel good thinking that the most important thing isn’t whether or not X likes me but whether or not I’m happy with him. This is a milestone for me. I feel more capable about my life and my future, and, instead of the leaden dread in my belly, I finally have a light bubbling sensation of hope and excitement about what will unfold.
People around me now ask me to take part in social functions, want to have me near them, call me, email me, and seek me out. I’ve been told I look great, what beautiful skin I have, men ask for my phone number and smile with pleasure when I walk over because they’re happy that I’m among them. My relationships with women as well have improved to one of sharing rather than competition & it feels lighter. More women friends are inviting me to come along going out, introducing me to other people and including me. I think that says it all. My dear friend says that he notices a shift towards more softness & femininity in me that he is very happy to see & hear. Another friend said that he’s never seen me look or sound so good before.
I now am more concerned with my happiness as a part of society and am positive & excited about the future. No more worrying if guy X likes me :), I know I’ll get the perfect one for me!

“She’s Already Getting GREAT Results With Her Career, VIP Parties and Dates!”
I just had to send you a big *Thank You*! I recently read your book, Make Every Man Want You.
I have had so much fun with it though I will by no means claim to have mastered the whole art of being irresistible…yet! I’m taking baby steps but have had some really great results and am looking forward to growing my irresistible muscle! I would love to share two quick stories.
The first weekend I read the book I was attending the Winter Music Conference in Miami. There was one private party that my cousin and I really wanted to attend and no one seemed to be able to get us on the guest list. I realized while reading your book that “being irresistible” would serve me in many areas of my life.
I shared with my cousin that if we approached the door needing, wanting and desperate to get in it would trigger a much different response than if we approached the door being irresistible! We breathed into irresistible and approached the door. We skipped the line and proceeded to the velvet rope…within two minutes the doorman went from “it’s a guest list only party” to “come right in!” He didn’t know what hit him 😉 Not only that but we ran directly into the one DJ, Bob Sinclar that I wanted to hand my music to. I was able to introduce myself and put my CD and note right into his hands. Thank you!
The 2nd story is that I had a first date this weekend with a guy who had flown in from NYC to Miami. We had a great day but reflecting back I can see where at times I was irresistible and times where I failed to be irresistible. We spent all day Friday together but then he acted a bit too busy to see me on Saturday. I ended up out at a fabulous party but I was disappointed that Peter wasn’t with me. Then I realized I had a choice: “be disappointed” or “be irresistible.”
I brought my friend to a quiet place in the party and shared that I was going to let go of feeling crappy and that I was going to create the rest of the night as “being irresistible.” Again we took a few deep breaths and walked back into the party. I walked right into a pretty irresistible guy who was totally taken by me! We ended up dancing for the next 5 hours…one of my favorite things to do!
So thank you! I really walked away from your book with the “possibility of being irresistible” and knowing that can only manifest when we are present in the moment! For the last 8 years I have been saying “I’m not ready for a relationship yet, I am focused on my business…I know that when I am about 40 he is just going to show up and we will know we are meant to be together.” Well…I am certain that your book was divinely guided to me because I will be 40 in just a few months and I believe “being irresistible” is one of the keys to attracting the man, relationship and life of my dreams. Your book goes way beyond relationships and I have shared with many friends the power of being irresistible in every area of our lives!
Have a bright and blessed lifetime! You Shine!”
