Women may blame men for impermanent romances, but the problem often lies with themselves, according to Allen, a Los Angeles psychotherapist who leads relationship seminars, and Harmon, a screenwriter and "instant convert" to her coauthor's techniques. To encourage a lasting commitment from a man, women are advised here to decide whether playing the masculine or femine role in a relationship suits them best. "Feminine" women should seek "masculine" men who will cherish their feelings and lead the courtship, even if the woman has a more powerful career. Conversely, "masculine" women should seek "feminine" men who will take a subordinate role. A "masculine" woman should be the aggressor; a "feminine" woman should wait to be asked for a date. Case histories abound and a question-and-answer section is included in this how-to guide that underestimates human complexity.
