Is having “somebody to love” the most important thing in your life? Do you constantly believe that with “the right man” you would no longer feel depressed or lonely? Are you bored with “nice guys” who are open, honest, and dependable? If being in love means being in pain, this book was written for you. Therapist Robin Norwood describes loving too much as a pattern of thoughts and behavior, which certain women develop as a response to problems from childhood. 

Many women find themselves repeatedly drawn into unhappy and destructive relationships with men. They then struggle to make these doomed relationships work. This bestselling book takes a hard look at how powerfully addictive these unhealthy relationships are—but also gives a very specific program for recovery from the disease of loving too much.

    " This is a classic, and should be read by all women. It will open your eyes to the sad realities of life. That is, that certain men are dangerous to us; both physically, mentally and emotionally. We baby boomers have been brought up in a society that told us we were inferior to men. The author teaches us how to try new ways of thinking, how to protect ourselves, and how to heal from damaging relationships. Wonderful, insightful book! "
