The book is divided up into two sections (Leave, and Love), what women do wrong and what women do right. The things I was doing that were unproductive to my relationship were right there in black and white, to read and learn from. It helped also knowing that I'm not the only woman who has done these things, and it also helped that the authors explain psychologically why women do these unproductive things that can hinder the relationship, and also MOST IMPORTANTLY how you can think differently and process things to turn it around and eliminate the unwanted behavior.
It was also reassuring to read the section on what men love and to see the things that I have been doing right.
In part of the Love section, one thing I found very beneficial is where the authors speak about how women keep the passion and sex alive in the relationship. I appreciated hearing it come from the perspective of two men (the authors).
I highly recommend this book.
This book (along with Why He's Dating Her (Instead of You) - Why He Didn't Commit, Why He Left, and Why You're Still Hooked - 10 Ways to Be the Woman Every Man Wants) helped me turn things around.
This book helped me to get honest. I always thought it was the guys I was choosing who had the problem. To my surprise, I had deep feelings of resentment toward men and really made things hell for them and myself.
Not only did this book help me recognize what I was doing, the author gave very wise and very sound suggestions on how I could stop behaving the way I had been. It's taken some practice, but I am getting better.
Awareness is everything.
what was also great abt this book was the way they started it off. to really understand the way guys think/feel you need to understand how men bond/are intimate versus the way women are.
as women, when we become intimate, we tend to become "attached." with guys, they tend to go back and forth between attachment and separateness. i guess scientifically, that's just how we are. already, this poses a problem. -=o\ men often need their space but will always feel the need to be with someone at the same time. (pfft, and guys think GIRLS are confusing)
anyway, part one highlights mistakes women make to withdraw the man they're with. they talk abt women who secretly fear intimacy, women who secretly feel contempt for men, & women who give to freely amongst other things. then it goes on to say why these behaviors may draw men away.
part two explains things women can do to improve our relationships and what turns men on (not necessarily in bed).
overall, this is a great book and in the back there's a few quizzes on styles of loving.
i'm actually reading it again.
