Overview

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:
Bad Picks
·The Girdle—strives to control you
·The Dog Catcher—flees at the first sign of commitment
·The Ferrari—requires high maintenance
Bad Kissers
·The Hoover—sucks out fillings, tongue—anything
·Niagara Falls—produces enough liquid for a regatta
·The Puppy—licks you all over your face
Bad Break-ups
·The Western Union—ends relationship by letter, note, or e-mail
·The Freezer—turns from warm and caring to cold and callous
·The 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

    The best book on relationships I've ever read!

    I read this book literally from cover to cover and could not put it down! I ran the complete gamut from laughing to crying. It explained to me why I had made 'bad picks' in the past, what things contributed to my 'broken picker' and HOW I COULD CHANGE THAT! When I got to the 'bad kissers' on page 200, I nearly wet my pants from laughing so hard. I loaned the book to some of my girlfriends, single and married, and they went wild over it too. It covered so many different topics, from having minor problems in an existing relationship, to meeting people and how to do the '15 Minute Find' so you can determine from the very beginning if you're looking for love with the town loser or if this could be Mr./Ms. Right! This information in this book is absolutely priceless! Thank you!!!
