I’m not much into rules and seriously hate any type of action that is not authentically me.But exactly HOW do you remain the prize when the fear takes hold?They’ve been convinced somehow that relationships are things…and they believe that the possession of that thing will give them happiness and status…It felt like I was reading something from a friend. She claims in her book that men value looks above all else when it comes to seeking a mate which is why so many men go for strippers and bad girls.There were lots of good tips in here that I will use from now on in my dating life! In comparison to others books regarding relationships between men and women, this one falls short. The author is not a psychologist, psychiatrist, counselor, LCSW or an academic. I feel that that is not true and sells the male sex short.
It just sounds like the author has been burned a lot and has a very bitter and negative outlook towards relationships.
but you can’t lose something that isn’t a possession in the first place.
People who understand that relationships aren’t things to be lost and acquired don’t have this fear of loss (mind you, this illusory fear of loss) because they realize that relationships are what they are at face value…
The author even shares some of her own dating woes, and how finally she broke an unhealthy pattern within herself.
Overall, it's a very thorough guide and I consider it to be very helpful. It's been a while since I've been in a long term relationship, and I know it's because I was doing a lot of things wrong. This book was easy to read, and I loved the writing style of the author.
The book was read by the author who did a very nice job.
