Happiness is your choice and within your grasp. Amy Laurent shows you how to get it. Laurent wants women to know that they are in charge. We set one and, ultimate, we determine what kind of relationship we’re going to be in. With candor and respect, Amy shows women how to:
Stay out of the texting trap: If you start as a text girl, you will always be a text girl. He will not call you to say how wonderful you are, and what a great time he had… he will text you.
Create physical boundaries: After the first date engage in a modest kiss without swapping tongues instead of having a one night stand. Remember: Once you start having sex, you can’t take it back
Establish an exclusive relationship:
Hints, ultimatums, and threats won’t get you anywhere. Stay calm, and keep dating other people until the exclusivity conversation takes place. And remember: you have the power to guide the direction of your relationship.
Build the foundation for a lasting relationship:
A relationship is not like an open wound, you don’t need to apply pressure. Don’t start thinking about wedding bells so quickly after you have established an exclusive relationship but rather start building a partnership
…And she offers many more tips
8 Weeks To Everlasting is not about getting the guy. It’s about getting the guy you want and not wasting time on the ones who aren’t right for you.
