I recommend strongly.”--Eric Klinenberg, Professor of Sociology at NYU and New York Times bestselling author of Going Solo and Modern Romance with Aziz Ansari

This wise and compassionate volume helps us reconnect with our values and bring them into our hearts and our relationships with others.

Hayes, co-developer of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and author of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life

Well having read this, and having someone tell me that I CAN stop worrying, and just live in the now (and giving the techniques to do so), I already feel so much better and less stressed. Even though I've not finished the book, I have HIGH hopes that it's going to help me.
I've been obsessed with buying books on dating (how to get a guy, how to enjoy being single) and I don't think I'll ever buy another one again. If you're unhappy with your relationship status, this is the only book you need!
Quite useful but it would be nice to have the male perspective touched upon
It’s exceptionally well researched, easy to read, the exercises are achievable and with out doubt useful. It’s not just a book on being single it’s a book on helping you live better.
You will not regret this purchase.
