If you always experience the same unhappy endings in your relationships, All the Good Ones Aren’t Taken offers an empowering approach to changing your romantic life.  Dr. Debbie Magids will help you understand the patterns of behavior that are keeping you stuck and teach you to make changes in the way you think, behave, and feel, so that you can find the love you want.
Who are you?
The Old Faithful, who longs for the one she can’t have and can’t move forward.
The Whirlwind Dater, who constantly dates whoever she can but has difficulty finding a permanent mate.
The Standstill, who has done a lot of work on becoming the best woman she can be, but rarely dates and has a difficult time relating to men on an intimate level.
The Forbidden Fruit Hunter, who gets involved with men who are married, already have a girlfriend, or are still hung up on an ex and therefore emotionally unavailable.
The Compassionate Rescuer, who always dates the guy who has problems, putting her energy into “fixer upper” boyfriends.
The Wanderer, for whom just one man is not enough to fill the void, so she always has a lover or potential boyfriend on the side.
The Uptown Girl, who is attracted only to men with money, prestige, and looks.
The Runaway Bride, who is good at relationships until asked to commit – then she finds a way to end the relationship, pronto.
