I found this book particularly useful with online dating relationships, where there is often the FEELING of knowing someone without actually having spent time together. He addresses this particular topic head on, arguing that sharing/talking is only one part of the essential equation, and must be combined with shared experiences (togetherness) over a period of time. I am currently working through the book with an online dating partner (having read it previously, outside of a relationship), and we are both finding it incredibly useful in delving into the issues of our own growing relationship as well as the patterns and mistakes of past relationships. (WARNING: You must be willing to deal with the issues in your own life in order to fully take advantage of what this book offers!!)
I particularly like the mental model of the RAM (Relationship Attachment Model) described within. And the bits about conscience being one of the most important factors in a potential mate, and how to figure out if your loved one has one and how strong it is.
Another book I found useful was "Love Tactics: How to win the one you want" but for very different reasons. Love Tactics is more about explaining the mechanics of dating, and giving good advice on what to do/not do (if I'm remembering right; it's been a while since I read it :)) It's not about finding the right long-term partner, however. Maybe these two books complement each other perfectly :D
