Wishful thinking has not brought you love. Is love worth it? Am I better off alone? Is there anyone out there I could even tolerate?

Wishful thinking has not brought you love. Neither has apathy, depression, denial, anger, panic, analyzing the problem, blaming the opposite sex, or cursing the bleak demographics. So if you still want love in your life, the question is, what will bring you love? Perseverance. Why do we long for love, yet fail to proceed in a determined fashion toward this goal? Why do we get sidetracked? Ambivalence is one major reason. We aren’t sure which race we want to be in or whether we want to be in any race at all. Is love worth it? Am I better off alone? Is there anyone out there I could even tolerate? Will I lose my independence? Will I be too vulnerable?

This book is about understanding the failures of singles perception about dating and finding a date. It does a good job, but the book title is slightly misleading, and I'll explain why I think this is. Susan Page walks through a lot of different scenarios about why couples either can not find love or can not maintain it, and throughout all of it, never goes into a whole lot of depth. She stays very broad on each of the topics (I understand depth would be difficult in this subject matter because who can say what someone really feels when you don't know someone). At the very end, she addresses a topic that I think the book's title addresses more directly than any of the single's mispercpetions - anxiety about finding someone to love. That topic at the end was in it of itself a subject of content for another entire book, but Susan dismisses it with something along the lines of "ease of mind comes in time". I think that all singles find that this is a difficult matter to resolve, and it would have helped if Susan had more to offer about this. Other than that, while I don't think the book was written with a psychiatrist/counselor's precision in explaining the failure stereotypes, I think that Susan definitely did a good job with her book.

This well-written book gave me insight into my own issues with intimacy and defining what I really want in a relationship, in a very sympathetic and relatable way.

Although the material seems a bit outdated (who places personal ads in the newspapers these days??) the core of the material is very valuable for the "involuntary" singles. The chapter on the ambivalence explains a lot about the obstacles our subconscious is creating. Shedding a light on this subject made me look into the reasons for my resistance to create or maintain healthy relationships. There are a lot of gems in this book/CD. I got the audio book, easier to get through while commuting to work. Well worth the money!

This is one of the best books I've come across for addressing how to find an intimate relationship while dealing with yourself in a society that values having a successful career vs. a successful personal life. I really like how the author goes into the Great Emotional Depression our society is experiencing. The author also gives you good strategies on finding intimacy in the face of your own issues and environmental circumstances that make it harder to find lasting relationships. Very good book.

Very old school of thought and not helpful for a single lady.

The title of the book caught my attention right away as it's something I think to myself quite frequently. Unlike most self-help books, this author actually tells you what might be the problem; she's not afraid to be honest and she has many legitimate reasons for why you could still be single. If you are truly wondering why you have failed to be in or find a decent relationship, then don't buy any other book but THIS ONE. It will give you a nice reality check.

So if you're wondering whether or not you should buy this, I say BUY IT. It definitely isn't a waste of your money!

Life changing book! This has helped me look at relationships differently and increased my confidence about my love life. I have already told several of my friends to buy this book. The only downside of this book is when she randomly talked about HIV/AIDS and single people. That was weird.
I am extraordinary thankful for this book, and it is a hidden gem. Although the book is written about dating and your love-life, it has helped me re-evaluate how I'm living and prioritizing different aspects of my life. To truly benefit from this book, you've got to go through it slowly, to be honest, and to engage yourself in the exercises. The chapters on intimacy gaps and saying "yes" were ground breaking for me. This book prepared me to embrace and to move toward a healthy, intimate, loving relationship, and I found the love of my life/future spouse not long after I had digested this book. A great source of wisdom!
