At last, #1 bestselling author Judith Sills tells us: women are strong enough to love men more, now that we need them less. Love men more? But don't women love men too much already? No, says Sills. Women have needed men too much, made them too important in our lives, and that got in the way of loving men and of feeling loved. The path to love is not about finding the right man, fixing the one you've already found, or trading him in for someone better. It's about recognizing the emotional reactions - the fantasies, the wishful thinking, the fear, the rage - that suffocate our feelings of love. It's about stretching love to include his less lovable self, instead of withholding love until he deserves it. Get to love not by changing the man, but by changing the eyes through which you see him - not for the sake of his happiness, but for your own.
