Based on a groundbreaking 25 – year study of marriage, divorce, and new LOVE—finding the right one just became lOO% possible!

Whether you’re divorced or separated, out of a long-term relationship, or newly datingaftera long break, Finding LOVE Again offers simple, practical strategics that have been shown to help singles find someone special.

Brimming with stunning original findings, first-person stories, and eye-opening advice. Finding Love Again shows you:

  • Eight relationship myths that are sabotaging your love.
  • Why singles who have little or no contact with an ex’s family find love at significantly higher rates than singles who keep in close contact with their ex-in-laws.
  • I low singes who make one change to their daily rontinr—and stick with it for at least 21 days — are twice as likely to find new love.
  • Why the happiest couples in new relationships are the ones who don’t share bank accounts.

So here you are. Your most recent relationship has ended, and you’re thinking about a new one, or looking for love. You might be divorced or separated, or maybe you’ve just ended a long-term relationship, and you’re coasidering dating again for the first time in a very long time. You might already be out there in search of Mr. or Ms. Right, and this time around, you want to do it right. But the dating world is completely different from the last time you were single, and unaaswered questions keep popping up: How do I move on and forget about my ex? What kind of person is right for me? Am I too old to start over? How do I trust someone—or even find someone? And the tiny little voice at the back of your mind wonders: Will it be worth the effort if I do?

Believe me, I understand. I’ve heard the same concerns and fears from literally hundreds and thousands of people just like you, who want to know how they can find a happy, healthy, and fillfilling new love. The kind of love that keeps your relationship strong, the kind of love you tell your children about, the kind of love you dream of. You’re not alone. There are over one hundred million single adults in the United States today, and four out of every ten were already married once. The percentage of married people who will become single again before the age of fifty—either through divorce or a spouse’s death—is inching close to 50 percent as well. Who can blame you for feeling anxious or afraid? It can be overwhelming, I know.

But Fm here to tell you that finding love again—and more specifically, finding the right love—is 100 percent possible, now that you have this book and over twenty-five years of groundbreaking relationship research on your side. For over two decades, I’ve directed a landmark study on love, dating, marriage, and relationships, ftinded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This study is the only long-term study of its kind to follow a large and diverse group of people over such a lon£ period of time: from the early days of newlywed bliss, through the ups and downs of marriage, and. for some, through separations, divorce, and new relationships. The study is unprecedented in its scope and depth; over seven hundred married and divorced men and women have been interviewee for over twenty-five years!

What does all of this mean for you? It means that the unique findings and advice I’ll share with yoi in this book—the secrets to successful dating, what makes relationships work, and what keeps couples happy and together—are based on sound scientific research. The advice is tried and true— and it works. The simple, practical steps I’ve developed from this research have been shown time and again to help singles find new and happy relationships. Better yet, these steps will be ineredibl) easy to implement in your own life.

There are plenty of dating guides that will help you grab someone’s attention, turn a few heads, and fill your calendar with double-latte coffee dates, late-night drinks, and four-star dinners. But this book isn’t about finding “just anyone” and hoping that it all works out. This book is about finding true love from the inside out: preparing to date, rebuilding and moving on, discovering what your perfect partner is like, and then putting a plan into action to find that special someone. The person you have fun with and love to be around. The person you’ll grow old with.

Maybe even “The One.” In these pages, you’ll discover scientifically proven, never-before-released information that will make this type of relationship possible—which will make dating wonderful, exciting, exhilarating, and fun.
