Stephanie Rockey is the founder of True Life Partners, a personal introduction and search company in the Washington, D.C. area. After interviewing several hundred men and women, she found that most working adults were achieving what they wanted in the world of work, but could not seem to establish a loving relationship. What was far more disconcerting, however, was the realization that most women are entirely confused about how men think and what men really want in a relationship. Understanding this is essential in establishing the beginning bonds of trust that can grow into a solid, long-term, committed relationship. Women-it is not just about you. You cannot simply dictate demands: "I want this and I want that. I have a list of attributes that I require in a man and if he doesn't get a checkmark in every box, he just isn't good enough for me." Relationships are about not only love and companionship, but also communication and compromise. Whether or not you believe this, let me be the first to tell you that you are not perfect. Men are not perfect either and you can simply not hold them to the impossibly high standards that 90% of women seem to have! There are many self-help relationship books out there, however, none seems to apply in today's society; and, none really covers all stages of a relationship. After setting many clients on the right track to establishing a successful relationship, I can tell you that this book will give you guidance on not only what you are doing wrong, but also how to make positive changes that will lead to a successful life and relationship. You will discover further insights into how to achieve a happy, healthy, successful life, and long-term loving relationship.
