Overview

When romantic love strikes the heart, even the most profound and self-assured of thinkers arc left dumbfounded and uneasy. It is startling just how little we really know about a process that captures so many, so often, so easily, and to such irrevocable effect. Rarely have we enough data to fathom why in heaven’s name our friends pick the mates they do. And usually, we’re too close to our own no less perplexing romantic experiences to see them with any greater clarity. Choosing Lovers is an all-encompassing picture of romantic relationships in all their richness and complexity, providing answers to questions everyone considers including:
* Can I really find a soulmate?
* Why of all the people in the world have I fallen in love with him/her?
* Do I send out some signal that attracts one kind of lover and puts off others?
* What are the warning signs of love in danger?
* What are the different stages of love?
* How do I rekindle love and intimacy in my relationship?

Editorial Reviews

The Bloomsbury Review - Lauraine Smith
"Choosing Lovers is high on my list of recommended reading for anyone—whether their relationship is troubled or not. Blinder's gifted insight and practical solutions take the fear out of choosing new lovers. Choosing Lovers is truly a gem. . . ."
USA TODAY - Karen Peterson
" 'You simply fall for the person who is right for you at a particular time in life,' says psychiatrist Dr. Martin Blinder, author of Choosing Lovers. Dr. Blinder's easily understood descriptions of patterns of romance, the ways people connect, and why they break apart are invaluable contributions and should be required reading for all who search for romance and lifetime partners. . . ."
