Publisher's Summary

Many people have opinions on the subject of romantic relationships - why they're so hard to find and so difficult to maintain - but the real source of trouble isn't too complicated: it's that we are choosing our partners based on love, excitement, lust, attraction, neediness...on feelings. Instead of helping listeners find true love, Dr. Michael Bennett and his comedy-writing daughter Sarah reveal the practical, commonsense criteria for good partnerships that will allow real love to develop. Finding a good partner involves losing preconceived notions about who your dream date might be, so the Bennetts helpfully appraise the pros and cons of eight traits people most commonly seek: charisma, beauty, chemistry, communication, sense of humor, family stability, intelligence, and wealth. They suggest you'll have better luck finding a partner in a bar or online if you focus on ideas like mutual attraction and respect and common interests and common goals. With helpful quizzes and case studies inspired by Dr. Bennett's practice, F--k Love is packed with enough advice and wisdom to help you avoid the relationship nightmares that led you to this book in the first place. Contains mature themes.

Felt GOOD Laughing Out Loud after so long!!

I found a little pleasure in a time of much pain, a reason to laugh through all my tears, ability to forgive my past, and a roadmap to a happier future!! 😄 (and many ideas on how to keep people VERY much at distance if I choose so.)
Just couldn't stop listening & will Again & Again and then Pay It Forward.... 😊😊

Great advice... for dating in high school

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book is incredibly basic. There is no depth here and no insight to be gained. It might be fun to listen to if you just came out of a cheating break up and you are mad but there is very little to be learned here or to take forward into new and better relationships. A waste of time and a waste of money in my opinion.
