Overview

I need my space. We need to slow down. I'm just not ready to settle down yet.
Single women have heard all these excuses and more from the men in their lives. And with a growing number of people choosing not to marry at all, women who do want to get married are increasingly frustrated by men who, in the end, refuse to make that commitment. In this book, women will learn: how men really view commitment; what factors influence their decision to commit; the difference between cold feet and an intractable single-forever stance; which men are most likely to go the distance; strategies to persuade commitment-phobic men to take the chance on love and marriage; and more. With this book, women looking for commitment from their men can push them off the fence - and into the wedding chapel. Or, if they're found wanting, simply cut them loose with that other famous line: Maybe we should see other people.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

There are many ways to get a man into the wedding chapel, including taking the traditional route and using ancient Indian meditation, as these two books indicate. Psychologist Block and relationship writer Neumann explain that commitment really means exclusivity, thoughtfulness, and availability for both parties; one needs to be able to spot someone who is ready for these realities. The authors advise women dating men who show signs of unwillingness to commit to date other people. Robin and Michael Mastro, nationally known for their expertise on the art and science of vastu shastra(Sanskrit for "home instruction"), provide basic principles for creating positive romantic relationships in terms of space and energy. They offer Indian versions of feng shui principles to help readers (women or men, really) free the flow of energy in their homes to support a more receptive self and eliminate stress by balancing the five elements in the environment. Both books provide more than adequate coverage of the subject and might effectively be paired with books on divorce for a little perspective. Recommended for larger libraries.
