Meeting and Choosing a Partner Who's RIght for You
Tired of the man-bashing and woman-hating drama of the modern dating game? In Black and Single, Dr. Larry E. Davis--a social psychologist and voice of reason--reconciles the sexes, providing an indispensable buyers' guide for the romantic marketplace. His unique ideas start with appraising your Romantic Market Value (RMV), then assessing what your romantic budget can reasonably handle, determining the want vs. need ratio of the make, model, and type of mate you desire, and ultimately deciding how much power and handling you require. Inside, you will discover:

How to manage expectations from past successes and failures
The differences between liking, loving, and lusting
What color and perceived beauty have to do with everything
Why the most may not be the best for you
How to alter traditional roles to suit a changing you
Straightforward advice for avoiding the pitfalls that lead to heartbreak

With entertaining and thought-provoking examples from the real dating world, Black and Single is a practical, one-of-a-kind tool that will help you find the love you deserve.
