Simple and astounding May 12, 2008
My beloved yoga teacher recommended I read this.
I highly recommend this book.
Personally, it has been a profound experience. I can now see this is a pattern of behavior that others have gone through as well.
I have felt alone. and reading this book has given me assurance and the ground work for change, for growth and healing. It is simple enough to read in a couple of days, but i have reread it several times now. and am working the suggested exercises.
thank you for reading.
Best gift you could giveto your sisters. Mar 19, 2008
If you have as many sisters as I got, then you surely need this book. Women tend to be more additive to love. When they are trying to recover, then they should read this book.
In the book, author travel the great length to give you examples of how? Why causes it. Good reads. It makes women to analyze their dating strategies. Some might work, some might not, get the book called, "Rules" for dating, get this book for healing, and in between, pray to the lady luck.
Don't throw out the baby w/ the bath water... Mar 3, 2008
Yes, if you think you are a love addict/avoidant, get this book. If you find yourself back in the same love cycle and never able to move beyond your relationship problems/hang-ups, etc., this book might be for you. If you can't decide if you love or hate your partner/spouse; if you're afraid you might be unfaithful if things don't change in your relationship soon...this is definitely for you! Buy it, check it out from a library...Devour it. I, myself, haven't quite finished it, but I have found it extremely helpful. I thought my marriage was over, but this book is helping us rebuild it stronger and healthier than ever before. I do encourage additional support as you go through this, however. It's intense and a good therapist/counselor can help you and your partner/spouse navigate through the difficult topics. Hope this helps you in your journey...
very good Jan 27, 2008
i am still in the middle of it - taking my time to absorve all the info its looks very clear and helpful so far if you are doing cognitive therapy for love/sex addition i would recommend as material to discuss with your therapist
Who would have thought you could be addicted to love? Jan 6, 2008
What a wonderful and important book this is. For years I wondered why I attracted the same person over and over, though with a different name and face. Why was I willing to give so much of myself for so little in return? Why was I willing to put up with so much to get treated so poorly? After reading this book, it all made sense...
At times I felt like she was writing just to me. The good news is that after describing me to a T, she offered me the hope and the way out. Without that I would have continued to just feel alone and victimized. Now, I understand what boundries are, what MY part in all this is, and how I can change to finally get what I want - a loving partnership with someone who loves and appreciates me.
If you're having trouble in relationships and feel like you have a bad "picker" - that you always seem to pick the wrong person - than this book is for you. Get it tonight!
