    Another great book by Charlotte Kasl showing how the sometimes obtuse concept of Buddhism can be applied to every day life. In this case, she shows how the world of dating has become such a source of anxiety and frustration, everybody putting on their best face to try and find someone, all the while not realizing (or caring) that their best face isn't their face at all, just a visage of what they think others want to see.

    Dating, it turns out, can be fun and exciting. If you go into it with your genuine self, have no expectations except for seeing what happens, being in the moment, realizing you may or may not like the other person or results (all Buddhist views of life), you are much more likely to find a genuine connection. Even if you don't, so what? You've met people, had some new experiences, perhaps made some new friends...and yes, possibly fallen in love.

    Written in brief chapters, like all of her "If The Buddha..." series, this is perfect book to nibble at, digesting a bit at a time, turning into practice. If the Buddha dated, he'd have fun and be genuinely interested in people...and so should you.

    Just what I needed.

    This book is an excellent source for understanding how to find love from a spiritual perspective. When I first saw the title, I thought what a silly book, however something tugged at me to pick it up. I am glad I did. I truly believe I found my partner because of this book. I have recommened this to all my friends and family that are on a spiritual path trying to find love.

    must read

    This little book is packed with some much good advice. The stories are great and a must read for the person that is looking beyond the traditional ways of thinking in finding someone to share life....
