9. learning the 50 reasons to leave (these are the things that put us thought living hell in a relationship)

10. How to relate to the other one in a sacred relationship

I went through one divorce. I thought I could "fix" him. Ladies, knowledge is more than power. It's a way to prevent future pain.

Gentleman, this book is for you too. No side tricks to snatch your freedom away from you.

I've read a lot of relationship books. They all have some kind of trick to induce the guy into your net. Not this one!

Being "The One" is a fair and balanced way to heal the pain or get out of the pain, and learn how to relate authentically, for both people, equally.

I'm recommending this book to everyone I know who is still stressed out from an unhappy relationship. This book is THE ONE to read.

The premise of this book suggests that you will stop stringing yourself along, and learn how to be "the one" and that is EXACTLY what this book delivers.

I'm a guy, and as I read this book I got to understand more about myself, and how I relate with women.

The book shares in a straightforward way how to create the standards you want in a relationship, and stick by them, so that you're sticking to your truth, and not jerking yourself around, or "stringing along" another person.

The book shows how to be your real self, without all of the walls and the games that many people play in relationships. I learned more as I continued to read the questions and answers, and then even more in the chapter on "sacred relationships" from divine source, which gave me an entirely new perspective on male/female relationships in general, and that perspective helped me see and understand more about how to relate genuinely, and "treat the other person the way you would want them to treat you."

This book has excellent answers, real advice that is in a tone that tells it like it is, while bringing a higher perspective to all of our romantic relationships.

The book helped me a lot. I learned a lot, and I am better on the inside after reading it. Coming from a guy, if that means anything, this book raised my self awareness, and made me much more aware about how to treat a woman, baaed on my own self worth, and how I allow myself to be treated. I'm grateful to the author, and I believe after reading this book you will be too.

I bought this book hoping to find answers in relationships and that is just what I got from this book. Barbara Rose really hits the nail on the head in each chapter.

1. "String Along Valley" shows "the dating game" and the "string along excuses" standards that any human being needs to have, and gives excellent advice with the string along warning signs.

2. "Mixed Messages" what to do when you don't know what he (or she) is going to do. The role of honesty, the "make-up, break-up cycle", "The I can fix him myth", the "just friends scenario" and "how to move on when you still love someone." This chapter brings great clarity to all of the above.

3. "Lifting yourself out of the valley of misery", along with "addressing fears of ending a relationship", "igniting your passion and purpose" and "who you are from the inside out" all bring outstanding advice on exactly how to handle each topic.

4. "Catch me if you can" this chapter deals incredibly well with "mixed signals" and exactly how to handle them.

5. "The mating game" gets serious with "warning signs of perpetual dating", "the string along wife", "torn between two lovers", "till death do us part" and "finding the courage to leave the string along life". An engaging chapter dealing with very real situations. The advice is real, authentic, empowering, and doable.

6. "Dating for all the wrong reasons", "from expectation to authenticity", "when you can't be bought", "options", "No permission, validation or approval needed" (buy this book for this chapter alone!) "Healing string along misery" and "the waiting game" all bring fantastic advice that will stay with you for a long time.
