Item description for Truth in Dating: Finding Love by Getting Real by Susan M. Campbell & Gay Hendricks...
Millions of single people --- whether never married or recently divorced --- put a lot of energy into meeting and dating new people, but because they don't invest their true selves, their efforts often go nowhere. To counter this trend, Susan Campbell presents an approach to dating that many may consider radical: Be honest about yourself and ask for what you want, up front. Campbell shows people how to have fun by flirting truthfully; date without getting ahead of the relationship; enjoy the freedom of being themselves; relate with honesty to their dates; realistically examine what a romantic partner can --- and can't --- offer in the way of fulfillment and happiness; and move forward when the time is right, or say goodbye if it's not working. On the way to finding the love of their lives, readers gain the tools they need to successfully manage the entire process.

useful suggestions Jun 7, 2008
I read this a couple weeks ago. SOme paragraphs, I totally skim read since they were LOONG example stories, and sale pitches for the author's seminars... but I've begun to relate in a different way with the men I meet-date-know and I totally like this new and honest approach, it does simplify things and eases up on any after the date guilt that I may feel if I don't necessarily find the man atractive or a match for me. I recommend this book.
what a bunch of bull Dec 6, 2007
Sorry...written by a woman for women and I am a man....We are different species when it comes to this stuff, but an interesting viewpoint none the less.
True love Feb 15, 2006
When you date in the traditional manner--trying to manage outcomes and get people to like you--you are left living or dating in fear, wondering when you are going to be 'found out' and the love will be lost. Gay Hendricks presents the alternative, one that only some people have discovered on their own.
I read Truth in Dating after reading Getting Real most of Brad Blanton's books on Radical Honesty. I found this book to be the best of the genre because it artfully disperses theory, practice, and examples in a format that is easy to digest and relate to.
I couldn't agree more Jul 14, 2005
I read every single page of this book and everything in it was right on target. I mean it's sad but you do have to be yourself. I mean we all at some point in the beginning act like someone were not or fall in love to easily. This book covers and has so many useful advice I don't feel the need to go on, as you should get the hit.
Another great book I've found and let me tell you it changed my life was "How to get the Woman of your dreams using the internet" Now this was another book that opened my eyes and showed me everything I needed to know to be succcessful and also what to watch out for. There are so many scams and terrible people out there in cyberspace. No i'm sorry ladies the Author does have one for you too! "How to get the Man of your dreams using the Internet" All I can say is It WORKS!!
this approach takes courage but it's worth it! Oct 22, 2004
I have found this book and other books by this author extremely helpful. I have been married for one year and I credit Dr. Campbell's philosophy and what I learned from these books as a big part of why my marriage is so rich, intimate, and satisfying. That said, this approach takes a great deal of courage. It is not for the faint of heart. For those willing to risk being truly open, however, the rewards are exceptional.
