Overview

A guide to making the ultimate relationship decision from the author of Why Does He Do That?

In this supportive and straightforward guide, Lundy Bancroft, the author of Why Does He Do That?, and communication specialist JAC Patrissi offer a way for women to practically take stock of their relationships and move forward-with or without their partners.

Women involved in chronically frustrating or unfulfilling relationships will learn to:

  • Tell the difference between a healthy-yet-difficult relationship and one that is really not working
  • Recognize the signs that their partner has a serious problem
  • Stop waiting to see what happens-and make their own growth the top priority
  • Prepare for life without their partner-even as they keep trying to make the relationship work

Editorial Reviews

Theoretically, ending a painful relationship should be decisive, but many of us anguish back and forth, never quite resolving our feelings about people we once loved for who don't seem to care about us. This new book by two communication specialists is designed to address specifically the differences between a healthy, yet difficult relationship and one that is beyond repair. Should I Stay or Should I Go? not only answers its title question; it offers valuable pointers about the positive steps you can to avoid rebounding back to ex. Life-changing counsel for women and men on the ropes.
