Dating as you know it is simply one of the most inefficient, nonproductive, haphazard and hit-and-miss ways to try and achieve one of the most important objectives of your life. It's time to do something different.

-- Dr. Phil

If you are sleeping single in a double bed, or walking down the street thinking, How do I meet that guy?; if you're on your twentieth date and he's no more committed than when you first exchanged cell phone numbers; if everyone you know is getting married for the second time and you can't even get a first date; if you love the one you're with but the relationship needs some spark...then this audiobook is for you.

In Love Smart, Dr. Phil tells people who are dissatisfied with their love lives to stop making excuses and start taking action! Dr. Phil knows that you deserve a committed relationship, and it is within your control to have the one you want. First you need to determine what you want in a partner, plot your course and get out there and create velocity in your pursuit of a loving connection. Love Smart explores new possibilities, new places to meet people and activities to get involved in where you'll find interesting people. Or if you are simply looking to rekindle the relationship you are already in, Dr. Phil will tell you how to turn up the flame.

Dr. Phil says there are no exceptions: There is somebody for everybody, and everybody deserves a relationship filled with love and excitement. Love Smart offers you the plan to find not just any relationship, but the committed, loving, joy-filled relationship you've been waiting for. Download and start listening now!

    " don't know what I was thinking when I purchsed this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kiara | 1/8/2014

    " Gooed ideas for looking at a relationship from a man's point of view. It's one of those books that you need to reread in order to get all the info out of it; it's too much to absorb the first time around. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 12/25/2013

    " Writes like he speaks. As smarmy as one might expect... lots of "good-natured ribbing" with, here-and-there a slice of common sense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 12/18/2013

    " This is a great self-help book for women who want to understand what to focus on if they want to have a healthy relationship whether they are single or partnered. It contains lots of useful Q&A sessions to help focus on what works and what doesn't when you're looking for a partner. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bridgette | 12/9/2013

    " Wow -- way too whiny. I listened to this on audiobook. It went fast. I didn't think there was anything there that was too new. Dr. Phil seemed always on the defensive. Arguing with some imagined person that was always pointing out why the things he said wouldn't work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 12/1/2013

    " Some good advice but a bit on the gamey side for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Morgan | 11/21/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 1/16/2013

    " After I read this I made a list (like it suggests in the book) about what I wanted in a lifelong partner. I started dating David shortly thereafter and realized that he had more than the suggested 80% of qualities that I was looking for in a mate. We got engaged 8 months later. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James Preston | 1/3/2013

    " This is obviously a self help book. So as far as entertaining, it wasn't. But there was a lot of good stuff in it. I think it would be very helpful for a lot of people, just not me. But I think I would recommend it if you're struggling with your marriage or something. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 10/14/2012

    " I never finished the book, but took notes on what I did read. I think the advice is valuable, and while most of it makes sense, not all of it resonated with me. Still worth reading if you feel like you need to change how you think when it comes to dating. "

    "
    The best part of this book is the part that talks about "finding yourself" I do agree that it's very important to find yourself before find your partner/love. The first one actually helps you to find the second one.
    The book has some interesting tips though. "
