Tired of trying to figure out if a relationship is right for you? Dating columnist Syrtash serves her solutions with a large dose of encouragement: "The man you are looking for is also looking for you." Though when it comes to substantial suggestions for improving your dating life that don't involve the pursuit of your "NT," or nontype, Syrtash is largely MIA. Women, she says, are too focused on their type even when their dating history suggests this type might not actually work for them. For instance, when Lahna looked beyond her type she fell in love - with a six-hundred pound man. Syrtash's formula for change ("Consciousness/Faith/Action") might sound easy, but remember, "When you are with the right match it will not be a thought, but a feeling." The author suggests ignoring what your parents, friends, or colleagues have to say about your love life, encouraging readers to "Date men you would date if nobody was looking," in a perky primer that offers few specifics to weary women actually on the lookout for Mr. Right.

Written from a place of deep caring and experience, Syrtash points out that what we think we want, and what's really good for us are often two different things.
