Have you ever asked yourself: Why doesn’t God bring someone to love into my life? Why am I always attracted to the wrong kind of people? Should I marry someone I am not really attracted to just because we share the same values and are such great friends? You are not alone. There is a growing population of people who feel that dating is just not working for them. In this book, Dr. Henry Cloud gets to the heart of these issues and provides readers with a de-mystifying perspective on dating and a hands on “How To” manual to get people unstuck, un-mad, un-depressed, and on the road to fun and fulfillment in the single life.

    " Lately I've been driving myself crazy with dating books, but this book is pretty solid. Definitely worth picking up. I guess the one big takeaway for me was that if you date someone you normally wouldn't consider (given that they are a safe person) you could really learn something about yourself and maybe even discover something you'd like about a person you never thought you would (or didn't like). "

    " started reading this book in october... i get bored with it and read more interesting books along the way but still pick it up from time to time...or maybe i'm just in denial about my so-called love life LOL... i'm not really much of a "self help" book reader anyway but someone told me it had some good points in it... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 2/11/2014

    " Having read a couple of Dr. Cloud's books previously, this one looked interesting to me. I've been meeting guys lately, but they are not usually what I'd call "quality men." So I got the book from Audible and have been listening to it. Dr. Cloud promises to have you dating in 6 months, so I'm journalling my progress on my OKCupid page. I need to make friends more than anything else, but I often fall into the same ruts as he discusses int he book, and as many others. I mentioned this book to a friend and said Assignment 1 is "write down every eligible man you meet for a month." She said "that's easy: zero!" I said unless she was a shut-in that's literally IMPOSSIBLE and even if she is a shut-in, she might have a plumber or electrician or mailman or pizza delivery guy so that's no excuse. I'm working my way through it but I'm hopeful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 2/8/2014

    " Some good suggestions in this book, but I left it feeling like something is wrong with me because I am still single. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alissa | 2/5/2014

    " besides the specific dating-related stuff, there's just some solid advice here on how to enjoy life more. it's definitely a christian book, but not at all obnoxiously so, and not in a way that makes it irrelevant to people of other persuasions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 1/30/2014

    " OK, I've found that one should read one of his books at a time! I just started listening to this one this morning and found it paralleled perfectly to "how people grow" and I now wonder just how much my brain can hold without exploding! So far it is a great read/listen, something that I know I will put to good use as it is practical teaching on how to find that date worth keeping...and I'm only on chapter 5! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/29/2014

    " A sensible approach to Christian dating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo Ann Sharkey | 1/18/2014

    " This is the most helpful book ever and I think everyone (especially all my fellow single friends) should read it with me! Cloud has a realistic and reasonable grasp on the dating world and I think he gives feasible and positive advice that leads to success in dating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Cross | 1/17/2014

    " Good stuff here. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 1/16/2014

    " My friends are calling this book the "bible" of dating. It has a lot of logic behind dating that was worth the read, but it did become very repetitive toward the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 1/15/2014

    " I haven't read Boundaries, but this one totally changed my view on dating and finding the issues that keep you from having healthy relationships (with anyone- friends family and dates). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs.soule | 12/25/2013

    " Checked this book out from the library in order to laugh over it with friends. Ended up following its advice and two days later met the man who's now my husband. So yes, I absolutely recommend this to any single Christian looking to not be single any more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire | 12/18/2013

    " lots of challenging thoughts and views. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 11/30/2013

    " reading group selection "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Moira | 11/8/2013

    " I just recently discovered Cloud's work and really like his take on things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandy Million | 9/17/2013

    " I don't know if the suggestions he makes will get me a date or not, but I do recommend reading this for two reasons: 1)It makes you more aware of your actions and your surroundings. 2)He puts to words a lot of things you already knew, BUT had shoved to the back of your brain and done nothing about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Song | 5/29/2013

    " I felt like the author's personal dating experience and his background as a psychologist gave him more authority. I plan on working the plan. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adrienna | 3/20/2013

    " Research and wanted to know on dating vs courtship. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 6/9/2012

    " Short sweet and to the point. Very helpful and insightful book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 6/6/2012

    " The best book about dating I've ever read. Changed my life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kat | 1/13/2012

    " Good, practical advice. Written from a Christian pov, but great advice for anyone. Love the cover and the title. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz Gibbs | 12/9/2011

    " An eye-opening view of the problems that keep us from having a good dating life. Dr. Cloud's writing style was an encouragement to me to try this system and get out there and enjoy the men in this world, without pressuring myself into finding someone to marry. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 8/30/2011

    " Good description of situations and case studies, but as to actual 'solutions' it is lacking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 6/24/2011

    " One of those books I don't publicize that I'm reading, but as it was pretty useful, I'm owning it. Didn't agree with every word, but helpful for those who wonder why there seems to be nothing happening in the relationship arena. Dare I say it was insightful and eye-opening? I do. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Rowe | 6/15/2011

    " This was not just how to get a date, but how to get better quality dates. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 4/21/2011

    " I've been in a relationship for a long time, and the book was very eye opening for me. There were a number of very helpful sections for someone that's in a relationship. Very informative, but definitely need the group as the author discusses. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 2/15/2011

    " Think all Christian singles should read this book. Good advise on dating but also on cleaning up your own self and getting healthy so you can attract a healthy mate and establish a healthy relationship. "

    " It's pretty basic, so if you understand the concepts of dating don't bother, but it's a great book to suggest to friends who might need some...direction ;) Based on Christian principles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaclyn | 6/9/2009

    " This book was my dating bible. I used it for reinforcement when I was dating and having trouble doing what I knew I should be because it went against the norm. I'm married now and I have recommended it to several of my friends - even the non-christians. "
