Date Smart!: How to Stop Revolving and Start Evolving in Your Relationships
Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places? Here's How to End the Search!
Are you stuck in a revolving door of bad dates? Or maybe you’ve given up on finding a meaningful relationship altogether. According to dating experts David Coleman and Richard Doyle, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can have that happy, healthy relationship you’ve been looking for.
With eye-opening exercises, quizzes, and other self-assessment tools, the authors show you how to pinpoint specific aspects of your personality that have caused you to pick poorly, remain in bad relationships, or sabotage good ones. Once you understand the reasons why you choose a certain type of person, you can focus on how to choose and attract the right person for you.
Inside, you’ll learn how to avoid:
ĚThe Girdle—strives to control you
ĚThe Dog Catcher—flees at the first sign of commitment
ĚThe Ferrari—requires high maintenance
ĚThe Hoover—sucks out fillings, tongue—anything
ĚNiagara Falls—produces enough liquid for a regatta
ĚThe Puppy—licks you all over your face
ĚThe Western Union—ends relationship by letter, note, or e-mail
ĚThe Freezer—turns from warm and caring to cold and callous
ĚThe Fade Away—lets the relationship fade by avoiding conflict
“Insightful and enjoyable. You’ll never approach your relationships the same way again."—Lynn Miller (aka Meg Lacey), President of Parke Media and novelist for Harlequin Books
