Where Are You? & Where Art Thou?
Where are you, personally, when it comes to finding the love of your life and where do you find them?
by Bart Smith
Author of five other extremely insightful relationship books, BART SMITH, is afraid for both men and women who long to find love and romance in this crazy, wack world. TODAY MORE THAN EVER, so many men and women have either tried their hand at love and lost (once, twice or several times) or have never even had the chance at finding love, experiencing romance or deep intimacy, finding someone of true quality or anyone seriously interested in something longer than a 1-night, 2-week or 3-month stand. So, they either give up (looking for love/romance) until they get over what they've experienced and feel they can jump back into the dating game again or conclude to themselves in their silence of quiet desperation ... "I'm just destined to die alone!"
If you are one of the millions of singles out there who have suffered from loneliness, repeated rejection, unwanted sexual advancements or a lack of warm, romantic sexual intimacy, along with an isolated heart when it comes to finding real romantic love in this world, then this book is for you.
Bart wrote (this book) with the aim of helping those like you who may have gone on dozens of dates (or no dates) and you're still single looking for love. This book was written to give you a vast array of relationship insight and wisdom needed to (not only) find love, but also real knowledge on how to protect your heart, your body, your mind, your bank account and your future while on your journey to finding THE ONE for you!
TROUBLE IN THE HOUSE OF LOVE: Because we live in such a fast-paced society, it’s obvious, not many people are stopping to smell the roses of love and romance, would you say? Everyone, close your eyes and picture yourself slowing down to really meet people and get to know them. No cell phones, no social media, no TV, no distractions … just insightful conversations with someone new who you just met and who you’re taking your time to get to know. Who knows, this one person could turn out to be … the one!
When most people think of the dating landscape today, here’s what they think:
• We are in a dating apocalypse or dating famine or drought.
• People are starving for love, romance, affection, a soft touch, and a warm hug from a significant other.
• About 50.2% (124.6 million American adults) single. In 1950, that number was about 22 percent.
• 44.9% of the unmarried population aged 18 and older are female. For every 100 unmarried women there are approximately 88 unmarried men. When men are in oversupply, the dating culture is more traditional and monogamous. On the contrary, when women are in oversupply, like today, the dating culture is less monogamous and more promiscuous. Women are more likely to be looked at and treated like sex objects, rather than as romantic love interests by men.
What does all this mean? It means it’s not normal what we’re going through. It also means, singles today are in a lot of trouble. Here’s an exercise, CAN YOU RELATE to any of the following statements made by both men and women when it comes to today’s dating desert? Dating is awkward, a chore say some, confusing, even annoying, for some draining, others frustrating, a mystery to many, dating today seems so sex-focused, dating seems scary for some, a struggle for others, stressful, tiresome, worrisome ... yikes!
For these reasons and more, my next guest wrote a relationship book in hopes to help both men and women never experience these feelings or experiences again. His aim? To turn the entire dating world on its head and straighten things out so both men and women come out winners in the game of love, life and romance. A tall order for one single book on relationships, eh?
