Why Mr. Right Can't Find You: The Surprising Answers That Will Change Your Life--And His
Author: J M Kearns
"If you've been on the lookout for ages but still haven't found the One, this is for you... you'll be in the arms of your true love in no time!" - OK! Magazine
Mr. Right is out there now - and the woman he wants is You.
Yes, you...as you are right now.
Why Mr. Right Can't Find You exposes the classic myths of dating and reveals the surprising secrets of true compatibility. giving you the tools to eliminate the Mr. Wrongs and, more importantly. to recognize the perfect man for you. No more playing games or second-guessing. with this book you will discover that any time is the right time to meet Mr. Right, that online dating can be the most successful way to find a partner, and, above all, that you ideal mate is out there now, looking for you. You just have to give him a little help...and this book tells you how.
Witty and down-to-earth, this practical guide will turn everything you thought you knew about mating and dating on its head.
Practical, encouraging and giddily optimistic, regular guy Kearns is convinced that "the world is full of lonely winners," but that the hunt for Mr. Right is often unsuccessful because women are taught, consciously and otherwise, not to make themselves available, and thus "don't give themselves enough of a choice." Kearns directs the lovelorn to embrace every opportunity to meet people, no matter how trivial the occasion, and not just when you're "ready for a Vogue cover shot." As women's own barriers to meeting people are the first that must come down, Kearns gently undermines the conventions and insecurities that keep them from actively and effectively seeking a mate, including self-defeating myths ("Serious relationships never begin in bars") and media-inspired body-image issues. Part one takes apart the myriad rituals of courtship, including chapters on "How Women Choose Men" and vice-versa, "The Perfect Place to Meet" and "Going Out Alone." He then tackles the "True and False Signs of Compatibility" across a number of axes (sense of humor, sex, goals), and devotes part three to destigmatizing and demystifying the online dating scene with a detailed step-by-step primer. Personal anecdotes round out this thorough, thoughtful and entirely upbeat dating guide.
