Book Blurb:

What I want most is to feel cared about and loved by you.
I’ve tried everything, but it’s not working.
What more can I do?
I love you so much, but I don’t feel like there are two of us in our relationship.

When you fell for her, were you so crazy in love and happy to be with her that you did whatever she wanted, so she’s happy with you?
Do you feel your relationship isn’t working for you, but it sure seems to be working great for her?
Are you exhausted from trying so hard to please her?
Do you sometimes think that there is something wrong with you?
Would you like someone to tell you why you’re so unhappy and why your relationship isn’t working?
Would you like to learn something new about yourself and learn what you have to do to get what you want in your relationship?

My Review:

I came across this book as it was an OnlineBookClub.org Book of the Day. The title of this book interested me as the dynamics of the new age relationships are always changing. Increasing number of couples are separating, and it is always great to understand and read about different perspectives on relationships.

The book basically has a bit of a Freudian perspective on relationships, which means that it states that the issues that stem in relationships (especially the ones where one person feels that they are the only one invested in the relation) stems from how their parents treated them as kids. While I do not agree with the concept in its entirety, I do agree that a certain part of what we expect from our relationships can be attributed to our upbringing. But there are many other factors that can contribute to a partner feeling alone or that they are the only one in the relation.

I liked the way the concept of upbringing is related to relationships by presenting the contrasting ideas of one person relationship and two people relationship. It helps the readers understand how their partners and themselves are handling themselves and their expectations in the relationship.

There is another book “You’ll do anything for him” which is for those who are in a relationship with men, so when you are reading, you would be able to relate more if the writing is about the gender you are in love with. This, I feel, was something that really differentiates this book.

The language that is used is non-clinical, so even those who are not that comfortable with the language would be able to understand the crux of the matter. On the whole I give this book a 4 out of 4 and would recommend it to those who feel that their partners are not as interested in the relationship as they are.
