"Something's missing in my life." "Everyone I meet is imperfect." "I date and date, but I just can't commit." "I'm so busy all the time." "Who needs love, anyway?"

Sound familiar? For every such plea, Shmuley Boteach -- author of the international bestseller Kosher Sex -- has the answer. In Why Can't I Fall in Love? Boteach blends time-honored wisdom with practical tips and anecdotes from his private counseling practice. Boteach presents a radical program designed to help singles (and even those in long-term relationships) make their dreams of love a reality.
