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.
TRUTH IN DATING covers:
* ways to navigate the singles scene that will maximize your chances of finding true love.
* why so many singles have given up on dating.
* why even psychologically sophisticated people have difficulty beginning a new relationship.
* learning to enjoy the process of meeting new people.
* unfocusing on the outcome.
* learning the skills for becoming more honest, conscious & responsible.
* realistically examining what a romantic partner can & cannot offer in the way of fulfillment & happiness.
* living graciously & honestly.
TRUTH IN DATING is spiced with sidebars, stories, examples, exercises & summaries, with a good resource guide & index, & will be of great help to the millions of singles, searching for true love & an authentic life.
I like how Susan presents an approach to dating that is quite different from conventional wisdom and people's old habits when getting to know a new person. Dating without thinking we have to calculate our every move can be so much more relaxing and fulfilling!
I also want to comment on a review here that stated that this book is a book written by a women for women, not men. My experience, as a guy, is that this book speaks to me very strongly.
I have a close friend, who is also a guy, and he frequently tells me that this book has completely changed his approach to dating and has made a huge difference for him. Women, in my experience, like men who are real and transparent. It is a great relief for them. Susan's work can be a great guide for us men as well!
Keeping relationships alive and living life fully - this is what Susan's books address.
She has a lifetime of experience working as a therapist, author, coach, and consultant. Based on this experience, she has developed a set of simple principles and tools that we can apply every day of our lives.
I find her ideas very helpful in looking at past relationships - what went right and what went wrong. I feel much more optimistic about creating a solid relationship in the future.
Susan is an excellent writer (and teacher). I recently attended a workshop that Susan lead. I found her to be unpretentious and personable, as well as a good teacher.
I highly recommend her to you.
Suffice it to say that Ms. Campbell has proven to me that I can handle the truth and whatever side-effects come from it. After all, if I tell you I can't tolerate perfumes and you continue to wear it strong, I've got some decisions to make. And, deciding to be true to myself, I am sure I'll be better off without someone who disrespects me.
In my opinion, it's a book about learning to stand for something versus accepting the justifications I tell myself and making us both miserable. Or, said another way, being co-dependent always backfires, so why not choose the truth.
There are exercises to work with if you have a partner, whether new or someone you've been with for years.
She's the best! I highly recommend!
