Would you take dating advice from an actress and a model? Maybe not right off the bat, because it seems like their point of view on snagging a man might be a bit...well...skewed. But actress Cheryl Anne Meyer, 25, and model Tara Landon, 25, have set out to change that.

Their recently published joint effort, "The Red Flag Rulebook," is a pocket-sized guide to recognizing potentially fatal flaws in a would-be suitor. And lest you still have your doubts as to what kind of dating troubles you may share with two such ladies, they didn't just rely on their own experience. They gathered their friends and family, women whose ages span at least a decade, and identified 50 flags that, should they wave, should be considered as red and counted against the young man in question. Their flags include the more subjective -- "Bad Reputation" -- to the downright dangerous -- "Temper, Temper."

Originally from Toronto, the ladies joined forces after meeting while filming a reality TV show. Each holds a day job at an advertising firm, acts and/or models on the side, and in their spare time, writes books.The two are now on tour with "The Red Flag Rulebook."
