Looking for Love?
New book tells why dating doesn’t work and reveals secrets to finding the love of your life
CALIFORNIA – Today there are more single people than ever in American history. Over 40 percent of our adult population is single and most of them want to meet their perfect mate. But dating has its drawbacks.
“Dating doesn’t really work anymore as a way to find relationship happiness,” says David Steele, marriage and family therapist, founder of the Relationship Coaching Institute (the first and largest relationship coach training organization) and author of the new book Conscious Dating; Finding the love of your life in today’s world.
“We want to be happy in relationships, but don’t know how. The old way of dating and mating simply doesn’t work anymore,” says Steele, “the rules have changed and most of us don’t know what the new rules are. In searching for love, most singles are using trial and error, flying by the seat of their pants, or following bad advice. Consequently we pay for this lack of conscious dating skills in other areas: divorce rates, welfare, domestic violence and juvenile delinquency, all of which stem from unhealthy relationships based on outdated dating principles.”
Steele points out that over 350,000 licensed therapists haven’t made a dent in our soaring divorce rates and that perhaps the problem is in the dating ritual itself and by addressing this problem, we will eventually see a decline in divorce and the associated consequences.
“We sometimes put more time and effort into selecting a car than we do selecting a mate,” says Steele, “we must start becoming more conscious in our process and stop making choices based upon impulse, lack of information, or desperation.”
This is not just another dating book filled with tired ideas about how to “get” a man or woman. Conscious Dating provides relationship information and strategies proven and tested with thousands of singles worldwide from a pioneering leader in the field of relationships. It does not offer manipulative or deceptive practices that compromise who you are, in fact it helps singles celebrate who they are and see being single as an opportunity and not a disease.
This groundbreaking new book starts by looking at fourteen dating traps and why dating doesn’t work. Then author David Steele delves into the ten principles for conscious dating and how any single can go from dating disaster to dating success!
Conscious Dating is destined to change the way you view dating, relationships and, most importantly, yourself. Who are you? What do you want? How can you get what you really want in your life and relationships?
Packed with tips, quizzes, personal stories and real world advice, David Steele shows you how to take a proactive role, perhaps for the first time in your life, so that you can find the love of your life and the life that you love.
