Why do so many of us commit to the wrong person? Most believe that attraction and compatibility are the keys to relationship success when, in reality, these are red flags in 15-20% of the population. When it comes to love, the brain is irrational and shortsighted. We make decisions based on incomplete information, biased understanding, and strong emotion. Love truly is blind. That's why you need dating radar, it gives you a way to detect hazards you might otherwise miss by recognizing:
1. Warning signs of certain personalities that can spell love relationship danger
2. Ways that they can jam your radar (deceive you)
3. Where your own blind spots might be
Attorney, mediator, and social worker Bill Eddy and relationship expert Megan Hunter use their expertise in high-conflict personalities, complicated relationships and divorce to equip readers to see through the blinding spark of new love and spot potential toxic relationships before it is too late!
If hindsight is 20/20, dating radar is x-ray vision.

Great book with easy to read passages and examples. After reading it I realized that my most toxic and thankfully shortest relationship was with a Narcissist. Makes a lot of sense in how he love bombed me and then later turned on me then disappeared. He came on so strongly at first. I was lonely and had low self-esteem. He found out my weakness then tried to connect with me on that level so I really thought there was more of a connection than there was. When I broke it off after about 4 months he wanted to get back together, which I stupidly gave into then he turned around and dumped me for another woman and blamed me for it. Got engaged to her 3 months after we broke up! Said I was a sexual temptation and a distraction to his new relationship with God. Got that line from his fiance who made him convert to her Evangelical Christian religion. So glad it happened and he ended it. Free and happy with a man who treats me well and doesn't try to shame me or belittle me. I can't believe how manipulative he was! I was so naive in that I wanted to give him a chance. This book made me stop and really understand what he was doing. Very short, intense relationship that had a major impact on how I move forward with men. Wish I read it when I was younger.
