From the Author

This Methodology was mostly conceived and matured during the last 12 years as a result of my experiences with many of the several million visitors to my "Novelist Seeks Heroine" website.

I don't know about you but I am a very impatient man. Patience is not a virtue--to me, it's a waste of time. Part of this comes from being a CEO--starting and running numerous companies and always trying to eliminate inefficiencies. Part of it comes from years as a management consultant, helping others figure out better ways to do whatever they do.

But mostly, it is just my nature to be impatient. I have a screaming sense of urgency to grab all the gusto possible, to savor and relish all that I can, in this all-too-short life we have.

The Good-Man Method originally started as a way for a somewhat introverted, somewhat middle-aged, somewhat average-looking man to more efficiently find a somewhat compatible date.

Now a fairly comprehensive approach for finding Happily Ever After, The Method has been honed not just from my own personal experiences with those I have met through my website, but also from interviews with tens of thousands of folks about their own relationships.

What started as a quickie web page to help me eliminate some of the endless iterations of the usual, inane, first-date platitudes grew into a tool to help me find the Heroine who matched all that I wanted in a lover and Soulmate. And into a Methodology which has already helped thousands of others find the love they have sought for themselves.

During the past few years, many thousands of visitors to my web sites have written to thank me for sharing my Method online. Many of these readers have urged me to publish my success story in book format so even more people could benefit from these life-changing insights.

My Goal Is to Save the World - One Million Years of Wasted Time - One Lover at a Time

Efficient Love is intended to help you take charge of your own Quest. Giving you the power to create your own "Happily Here & Now"(tm) and "Happily Ever After" in the ways that are most meaningful for you. Efficiently!

It is gratifying and humbling to know that my Method has already helped so many in such a positive way. My goal is to help every reader eliminate at least a year of dating disappointment. That's an extra 365 sunsets they'll have to share with their Hero or Heroine once they've used Efficient Love to find each other.

Are you willing to say goodbye to an entire year of awkward first dates, Internet trolls, head games and dead-end flings? Do yourself--and the soulmate who's searching for you--a favor. Get your copy of Efficient Love today.

I'm confident my Method can help you find the love of your life.

From the Inside Flap

The Nine Stages of The Love Quest Cycle

Isn't love wonderful? Isn't love terrible? Isn't it terrible how cyclical the Quest for wonderful love seems to be for you?

My guess is that you are experienced enough, maybe too much so, to understand and appreciate all three of those points. However, my other guess is that you may be doubtful how something like a methodology could possibly help.

Before I show you how to apply The Method to your own love life, let me see if I can quickly point to some compelling evidence that might, just maybe, sway your thinking and open your mind to an approach that might, just maybe, be better than all the ones you have been using all these years in your own Quest for Love.

Firstly, how many times, so far, have you been in love--or thought you were?

Think back to ALL your past relationships--not just your last, or current, one. Remember all of their names since the first one? OK, how about just the ones you've had sex with?

Based on my several million website visitors, my own 10,000 Heroine applications and my tens of thousands of interviews with others about relationships, along with some other, VERY non-scientific personal experiences, I've concluded that there are NINE Stages in each Cycle of our Quests for love--Nine Stages that we all go through--time after time.

You. Me. Them. All of us.

Some Stages really are magnificently wonderful. Some really are downright terrible.

Let's find out which Stage YOU are in right this minute. What was the average length of time you enjoyed the fantastic, incredible Stage of Love that made the Quest worthwhile after all? What was the average amount of time you were left on the stage, falling out of love? How much time was spent on looking for love once again?

One of the regrettable parts of the whole process is how often we all seem to cycle between all the different Stages of Love--along with the consequential waste of time, energy and emotion.

How much of all three have you wasted, so far, in your own seemingly never-ending Quest?

I know this may sound like an efficiency expert's approach to love, but my goal with Efficient Love is to help you minimize future time, energy and emotional waste and accelerate your success at finding your own flavor of Happily Ever After while maximizing your own Happily Here & Now.

You've got to admit that this is a formidable goal . . . but, even if The Methodology was only 30 percent successful, might it be worth learning and incorporating into your own approach to the Quest? What if the success percentage was even higher for you?

As you will see, I certainly don't consider all parts of the Cycles we go through to be a waste of time, energy and emotion. Just the opposite, as a matter of fact. Each one IS hopefully a learning and growing experience. However, you don't want to end up having the same bad experiences more often than absolutely required. And, once you've learned and grown, it's time to move on to new experiences that get you on the right path of Happily Here & Now.

Here's a hint for you: The parts of the Cycle that are really worthwhile are those that help you obtain and savor and appreciate all the Happily Here & Now you can grab on your way to Happily Ever After.

After all, one of the most important things I have learned, and one of the major points I hope you grow to believe and appreciate from reading this book, is that your Happily Ever After is made up of a series of day-in-day-out Happily Here & Nows.

I believe Efficient Love will help maximize both for you. Right now, there are over 100 million single adults in the United States. Most of them, along with a LOT of married folks, are still looking for their own version of Happily Ever After--with varying degrees of luck. Virtually all of them are going through one of the following Nine Stages of the Love Quest right now. My guess is that you are too.

Who ever thought the words "Love" and "Efficient" would go together? Well, novelist Robert Lee Goodman (whose day job is an independent marketing consultant to CEOs, boards of directors and venture capitalists) is sure they do.

A self-professed romantic, possibly "the most romantic man you've never met" is a man on a mission to "greatly improve your chances of finding your own Soulmate" on your terms. He logically and analytically leaves no stone unturned in his "marketing plan" to "save you MONTHS or even YEARS of wasted time."

His treatise is more than theory. He bases his knowledge on his apparently rich, personal dating research, his 12 year "Novelist Seeking Heroine" website, including the many applications from ladies to fill the position, plus interview results from people regarding their own relationships that number in the "tens of thousands."

"His concepts are new, bright, honest (you're not going to find this information anywhere else) and his dogged determination to find (and accomplish) his own happy after after give you, the reader, a huge benefit should you choose to follow his Good-Man (a play on his name) method. But if all you want are fantastic and interesting dates, "or lots of great, VERY compatible sex" and the heck with the happy ever after, this method will work for you too.

His candor is refreshing, his focus and his unwavering direction are amazing, and his writing style kept me smiling from the title throughout the entire book. Highly recommended.

As a Licensed Marriage Therapist and Professional Counselor, I have worked with hundreds of people for over 25 years. All shared one thing: relationship concerns - either working on an existing one or searching for the right one, sometimes ending one. Efficient Love by Robert Goodman addresses the issues of those who are seeking the right person without wasting time and energy on the same old path to Mr. or Ms.Wrong. It's natural to feel reluctant in figuring out how to find someone with whom to share your life. But Mr. Goodman's book outlines the perfect structure for an "approach plan."
In my professional opinion, the best thing we can do to achieve any goal, especially relationship ones, is to approach, never avoid. After reading Efficient Love, I think you will no longer feel shy or reluctant but will greatly benefit from the ProActive methodology for seeking a lasting relationship which is so expertly outlined in Mr. Goodman's book.

As a behavioral scientist with over a dozen books dealing in relationships on Amazon, I am quite impressed with this book. The title fits the book to a tee and the information provided is right on the mark. I will be looking for additional books by Mr. Goodman. This book is well worth your time and investment!!!

What makes Efficient Love different from all the other relationship books out there, and what ultimately convinces many people (including me) that Robert has a great approach, is that he's been able to innovatively use his MBA and many years of experience as a management consultant and business 'dragon slayer' to gain an amazing insight into everyone's quest for a Soulmate. Perhaps "Method" isn't the word we would to apply to our search for love -- but if there's anyone who can say they've got a method for the search, it's Robert! Behind his method is years of serious study and experience with relationships, and he's managed to successfully 'reverse-engineered' the entire relationship process!

While acknowledging that there's a lot of emotion involved and chemistry required in moving from falling-in-love to long-lasting relationship, Robert very clearly shows that there is still room for logic, even when talking about love, of all things. This, plus his step-by-step guidance about the need to be clear and comprehensive about what and who you want, the need to be assertive enough to communicate that information, the need to be honest in your intentions and emotions, and the need to understand the logic and procedure of how to meet new people (the theory of big numbers, marketing yourself, etc.) can make all the difference to those searching for long-term relationships.

*This* is what's new and different - and it's not out there, anywhere, in any other book. If you are searching, you should give Efficient Love a try.

I've just bought your book. "I've read it TWICE! I found it really appealed to my analytical side and I appreciated the thought provoking questions it asked.

I did write my own bio (lists) and sent it to a prospect who responded that it made perfect sense to him and he even created his own reciprocal list! I was quite impressed. Another interesting development was that the clarity of my "quest" allowed me to end a prospective relationship after 3 dates, rather than mucking around in ambiguity for months. All are GOOD things - thanks again!"
