About The Marriage MBA
Online dating is now becoming a popular way of finding new people to date. It’s a new way of hooking up but it’s not a new way of selecting long-term partners. The author explains the 7 things that we really need to know about people to make good long term choices in partners. Online dating provides lots of chances to meet new people but it does not automatically lead to relationships that are good for you.
The 7 things we need to know about others and ourselves are: emotions; motivation; personality; self-esteem; communication and negotiation; couple skills; and, the 4 types of common long-term relationships that work. The author explains how many daters use intuition in making poor partner choices and John encourages a slower and more methodical, more deliberate and more logical method of selecting partners. He discusses the qualities we need to look for in a potential marriage partner and how these qualities are identified during the early stages of dating. John offers practical insights and solutions to guard against emotional glitches that get us into trouble in relationships. He shows us ways to build internal resources, improve our self-esteem and attract better dates. Since we choose partners from our dates any self-improvement automatically improves our dates. Everyone will change their thinking about dating, friendships and marriage after reading this book.
