Dear Dr. Heitler: I live in New York. The purpose of this letter is to say thank you for all of your help during a difficult time in my life. I have spent the last two years trying to figure out what I am looking for and how to have a healthy relationship. I went through a long healing process and think I am ready to get back into dating. I am going to re-read your book because it is the best book I have read in how to have a successful relationship. Thank you again for all of your help. Regards, Bruce
