Real Love in Dating by Greg Baer
Book Description – For most of us, dating is often confusing, frustrating, and frightening. We look for the right person in bars, at school, at parties, and on Internet dating sites. But what happens when we find the right partner? 60% of marriages end in divorce, and only 1-2% experience the fulfillment both partners once hoped for. We need much more than another way to meet people. We need to learn how to create the loving and richly rewarding relationships we all want. In Real Love in Dating, you will learn: what we all need most before we can be genuinely happy is Real Love, unconditional love; what we substitute for Real Love, and how that Imitation Love destroys relationships; how we behave when we don not feel loved unconditionally, and how those Getting and Protecting Behaviors make us miserable and tear our relationships apart; how to find the Real Love that will guarantee lasting and rewarding relationships; how to find and become the perfect partner, and how to build a great relationship and keep your perfect partner.
The following is a review by Unificationist Sarah Oben:
“I found the book, “Real Love and Dating,” because a good friend told me that it is the Real Love book that is most relevant to the matching process. When I read it, I loved how Greg Baer distinguishes between Real Love and imitation love. He also teaches how the way we behave when we don’t have enough Real Love pulls relationships apart. He also delves into how to find Real Love before entering a partnership, so that we can be ready to give and receive Real Love when we meet the right person. There are so many practical examples given of how to show up authentically in conversation to foster Real Love instead of imitation love, as well as advice on how to seek and find a partner who shares the same readiness for Real Love. It’s a great read and I’d recommend it to anyone who is in the process and wants an introduction into the RealLove books, or has read other Real Love books and wants something more relevant to the journey of finding a lifelong partner.”
