Before you get involved by Sandra Brown.

My therapist recommended this book when I asked about moving forward after D back into the dating world. Ive made 2 bad H choices, both men complete opposite of each other. I told the therapist "you don't know, what you don't know. " How do you weed out the broken men, after ive worked so hard on myself.

Has anyone read it or used the workbook?

Im only 1/4th of the way through. So far its excellent! Interesting read with case examples. loaded full of information. It often uses concepts that we see here at SI, broken attracts broken and trust your gut.

Guess I'll have to get this book as well. I too, have had bad luck with 2 X's and a 3rd on the way.

I gotta fix my picker....

Is there a companion book "How to avoid the crazy woman"?


There is never a single right solution. But there are always multiple wrong ones.

Oh boy - this could be me. I don't need the book (not interested in relationships at this point) but I wonder if it would be a good one for my DD to read - trying to take a preemptive strike so she doesn't end up making the same mistakes.
