Publisher Comments:

Where is this thing called love? And how do you get there from here? For many it's an elusive goal that's over even before it has a chance to start — but it doesn't have to be. In A FINE ROMANCE, nationally recognized psychologist Dr. Judith Sills shows how the whole agonizing and exhilarating process of love actually develops between two people — and how the rules of successful courtship can be learned and mastered.

Dr. Sills covers all the skills you need to develop the right relationship in the areas of intimacy, compromise, and commitment. She also takes you step-by-step through the five stages of a relationship:

* SELECTION — when you actively or passively choose a partner.

* SEDUCTION — the dating days when you and your partner decide if the relationship is romantic, platonic, or dead.

* SWITCH — that uncomfortable period when the pursuer backs off just as the partner responds.

* NEGOTIATION — when you both acknowledge your differences and try to find a decent way to fight about them.

* COMMITMENT — the negotiation to marriage.

There is no one right person. There is only your ability to give and receive love. This book will help lovers learn how to do just that.

Synopsis:

Based on Sills' 16 years of experience as a psychotherapist and a teacher, A Fine Romance shows that becoming a couple is a matter of gradual unfolding in a series of predictable stages and offers a clear and useful map to this process.

I just recently ended a seven year marriage. Having gotten married in my twenties, I have limited dating experience. At the age of 30, I am having to learn this all over again and a friend gave me this book to help me out. This was probably the best gift I could have gotten at this time in my life. I highly recommend this book.
