"Enjoy this book and let it help you find your own soul mate" --- John Gray, Ph.D, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus.

While it might be a tragedy that about 50% of the married divorce, it might be considered somewhat of a miracle that the other 50% stay together. The numbers might be improved, assuming staying together is the more desirable option. If we spent time carefully selecting a mate and could meet a good number of potential partners to choose from, Marla Martenson has lots of suggestions on how we might be more successful. She renders the whole process of choosing a mate more objective. She should know, she has been running a matchmaking service in Los Angeles for years.
Assuming you want to meet a mate, Martenson strongly recommends adopting the four point process of The Secret, The Law of Attraction. In brief: 1. Name what you don t want, 2. Name what you do want. 3. Feel what you want. 4. Allow it to happen.
The book explains how it is important to relate to others for the right reasons and how we can figure out what are the right reasons for us. Better healthy alone than sick together she suggests. She offers suggestions on how we might improve our capacity for love and questions how attractive a soul mate we are. She even talks about how we might get ready for our soul mate when they appear, e.g. setting the dinner table for her before you even know her. Another of her section headings reads "How to give the heave ho" to a "No go."
Finally towards the end of the book, Martenson addresses a variety of questions on such topics as equality, honesty, who pays, how to make a good impression, how to ditch a creepy date, if he s so great why is he single, and many more. She even compares and contrasts internet dating with match-making, to the advantage of the latter of course, her point being you get a lot more feedback and coaching with the latter.
All in all a light book covering a wide waterfront with humor. The approaches to matehood recommended by Martenson would even help to enliven existing marriages. The other aspect of this book is that it points to a happier life even without a soul mate.
