May 10, Danielle rated it it was ok. I initially borrowed this book from the library hoping it would help me cope with the recent breakup of my 14 year relationship. I found the book was very informative and helpful if you're the one who was dumped or cheated on but in my case I'm the one who left the relationship. I didn't find the book was of much use to me.

One of the most useful parts was getting the reader to make their "personal love maps," or reflect on how she might have been expecting her relationship to meet any unmet needs she had while growing up. I know, I'm no fan of blaming family or reliving the past either, but I now think that it can be helpful to do such an exercise. I also especially liked how she dispels common fears about dying alone, so that it's hard not to end the book on with a positive outlook. Highly recommended, even to women who aren't necessarily in the midst post-breakup healing, but are confused about their love lives and why their past relationships haven't worked out.
