Give up the demand that your relationship be conflict-free, get over it, and go to the next step. Or do you minimize it, make excuses for it, or simply give him the silent treatment, hoping he will get the message? This is not an honest approach. Dec 17, Mary rated it really liked it. While many previous reviewers rightly noted that this book covers a lot of "common sense" concepts though common sense isn't as commonly exercised as it may once have been Distinguishing between deep character flaws and petty annoyances, taking responsibility for enabling a date's misbehavior while also addressing it, and handling conflict honestly and graciously are While many previous reviewers rightly noted that this book covers a lot of "common sense" concepts though common sense isn't as commonly exercised as it may once have been Distinguishing between deep character flaws and petty annoyances, taking responsibility for enabling a date's misbehavior while also addressing it, and handling conflict honestly and graciously are all learned skills; we're not born selfless, and navigating a relationship that isn't necessarily yet?
Like their cornerstone book, Boundaries, the overarching message is to genuinely love others well and by well, I mean unselfishly without allowing them to abuse or mistreat you, and without becoming overbearing or disregarding their freedom to choose even if you don't like their choices.
Again, it paints a good "big picture" of maturity, mostly through the use of case studies and straightforward breakdowns of issues' common roots. It would be a great resource for those who may feel "stuck" in a pattern of dating the "wrong" people, for those who mentor singles, and for those who are interested in the psychology of relationship development from a biblical perspective.
Honestly, even if you don't have a biblical perspective, the insight is still valuable and applicable. It's simply a solid read. View 1 comment. Apr 16, Emelie rated it liked it. Zoo wee Mama, do I have some thoughts on this one. First, the positives: like many of those said before me, this book has a lot of common sense advice. If you're like me and couldn't understand flirting if it hit you across the face with a frying pan, this book really helps you see how people date, how dating is supposed to work, and how to establish boundaries with those you date.
The common sense advice helps those who might not have a lot of dating experience am I saying this from a place of Zoo wee Mama, do I have some thoughts on this one. The common sense advice helps those who might not have a lot of dating experience am I saying this from a place of personal experience? Especially if you're Christian. This book reminds us that no, you're a human, you can ask for proper treatment and allow consequences if your needs are not respected or met.
It removes the guilt of wanting space, and removes the stigma of a "crazy" partner who doesn't want you looking through their phone all for the sake of love. Some other thoughts I had: Cloud and Townstead write a lot about boundaries, about growth, etc, but seem to forget that when it comes to dating, purity culture is being dismantled day by day for good reason.
Every chapter, you get hit in the face with the fact that Cloud and Townstead don't like sex before marriage. Cool, great, nice, but why is this in a chapter about not cutting yourself off from friends and family?
Also, Cloud and Townstead are two middle aged dudes who dated when purity culture was still running rampant. If you want dating advice written for a modern age please put your pitchforks down before you try be for heretical thoughtthis might not be the BEST book, but it's a good book. A lot of their views on sex are in line with the hushed whispers and Bible thumping rigid thoughts of Midwest Protestantism. It gets tiring. I also found it interesting that some of the examples used include people who are dedicated enough to be talking marriage, then decide that when the other isn't willing to commit yet which is fine and established more as the partner needing time, or needing to see their partner isn't going to wait foreverthey're just going to "see other people" for a while.
Maybe it's the language but that sounds like a strange lack of commitment for a relationship discussing marriage. I digress, and nitpick, and I know that. Not a bad book. Sep 10, Haley Victoria rated it it was amazing. If I ever have children, I will require them to read this book before they begin dating anyone. I wish I had it years ago! May 27, Rachelle Cobb rated it liked it. Similarly to the first title, Boundaries touched on the basic elements of how to date wisely.
In essence, avoid the mistake of dating someone who doesn't love Christ, treat you well, respect your family. I can see this book being helpful to those seeking to date differently than what movies portray, but I didn't get a whole lot out of it since I'd grown up reading Harris and Ludy and other courtship advocates. Still, the wise principles contained therein might benefit those wrapping their head Similarly to the first title, Boundaries touched on the basic elements of how to date wisely.
Still, the wise principles contained therein might benefit those wrapping their head around a counter-cultural approach to relationships. I really enjoyed this book. Coming from very broken relationship in the past, this book reminded me about the importance of setting healthy boundaries, the people whom I choose to date, how to deal with conflicts and how important your support system is.
I think it gave me a lot of perspective and thought about moulding myself to be a better person not just in relationships but also life in general. This isn't the most difficult read ever and some of the points are a little "Duh", but overall interesting points about the need for boundaries and some food for thought when trying to balance emotion and logic.
Also, I'm always sort of "eh" on anything with an overarching faith-based approach to self-help. This one grated on my nerves less than I was expecting much less.

Notes: Dating helps to learn about oneself and others and relationships, in a safe context; provides context to workout through issues; helps to build relationship skills; help to heal and repair; what type of person they will like and good for him, practice sexual self- control. Emotional maturity in dating is important in dating 2. Freedom and Responsibility create a safe environment for love, experience, trust Know what your fears and unresolved issues can bring you too e. Fears of intimacy can attract you to detached people;Fears of autonomy can attract you to controlling people.
I You and your boundaries -Why boundaries in dating? Boundaries serve two important functions: 1. Boundaries show what we are and are not; what we agree and disagree with; what we love and hate. Boundaries keep good things in, and bad things out. Boundaries protect by letting others know what you will and will not tolerate. If someone else is controlling your love, emotions, or values, or how you behave in dating relationships they are not the problem.
Your inability to set limits on their control is the problem. Boundaries are the key to keep- ing your very soul safe, protected, and growing. If you are trying to help someone and he is lying to you in some way, there is no relationship if worth it can work on trust.
It is another thing to have loved and been lied to. Do not lead someone on, or allow them to deceive themselves by anything that you are doing. Or, if there is something that the other person has done that you do not like, or goes against your values, or is wrong, it must be discussed.
Reasons you need to be honest about conflict Being honest resolves the hurt or the conflict. When you are honest, how the other person responds tells you whether a real, long-term, satisfactory relationship is possible. Yo need to know who you deal with someone who critisies, someone you can talk to. People who can handle confrontation and feedback are the ones who can make relationships work - Do not tolerate lying or deception period. NO matter what the reason for it.
Know your dating approaches? Growth from your past -Understand and deal with the issues that have kept you from changing your patterns. Be afraid of your past - consequences of the past, help to motivate yourself to make the change. Be afraid of ruining present relationship, ask for support. Be afraid of staying in the present relationship. Be afraid of being injured ask yourself why you were hurt before? Be afraid of waisting time. Be afraid reducing your prospects.
Examine following areas in dating: 1.
Defensive hope disappointment in life leads to hanging up to hope rather than change 3. Romanising fantasising, avoiding reality, being out of neediness 4.
Undeveloped intimacy unawareness of real connection, result to drawn to wrong ppl 5. Friendship is the path. LEARN to verbalise and deal with impulsive connection. Loss of freedom he is in charge 2. Resentment dependency 3. Confusion and responsibility 4.
Parent child struggles. If you do, the person that your loved one is loving is not you. It is the role that you are playing and not your true self who is being loved. Having enough talks to safely open up with each other 2.

Spending time away from each other to think through the relationship, alone and with friends 8. Deal with conflicts, differences, and preferences instead of glossing them over.

Is that reason sustainable? Or ask yourself if spending time with each other will help both of you in other ways Is there more ownership, a growth path, hunger for change, involvement in some system of change, repentance, or other fruits of a change of direction?
Is there self motivation for change, or is it all coming from you? Learn to deal with disrespect before you end things. Another reason seems to be that when- ever we do not have good limits with each other, there is a regression on the part of the person who is enabled to be less than mature. If you do, you will be quarrelsome and difficult to be around. Maybe let a few things slide once or twice, but do not allow a pattern of disrespect to occur. This is the world of dating, where you can abruptly break off a relationship, no harm, no foul.

You may come from a good family and relational background. You may be a well-rounded personBut, Actual rating: 2. After all, this one encourages casual dating! You may be a well-rounded personBut, even given these advantages, the specific arena of dating, like any other relational undertaking, must be experienced through hours and hours of trial and error. Thank you!! Tell this to the purity culture warriors, please! This wasn't a bad guide by any means. There were some great pieces of advice that anyone can apply to their love life, though some readers may consider the bulk of it good old common sense.
I've highlighted many passages that could help me improve in certain areas, or serve as reminders. Since this is a Christian book, I expected to come across bits implying that couples who have sex before marriage are "shallow. Thankfully, most of that is contained in one or two chapters and doesn't permeate the entire book as much as I thought it would. Another downside I sorta had with this guide was the emphasis on having a system to hold you accountable. This isn't a negative thing at all-a support group or even one good listener is valuable when you're pursuing a relationship.
What I took from it was the authors assuming that everyone inherently has that support, which isn't the case. This may sound nitpicky and you could probably say the same about many self-help books. I just wish they had provided genuine advice once in a while, instead of ending a section with "go talk to your friends. There could be many reasons someone doesn't have close friends, that have nothing to do with that person being morally or characteristically flawed.
It was pretty judgmental. Generally speaking, this is an okay book if you're about to begin dating and feel unknowing or overwhelmed. While I did have a few issues with it, and a better part of the advice will be very obvious if you have any self-awareness, there were some good things to balance it out.
Feb 16, Jennifer rated it liked it. People kept telling me to read this. Fine, I did. I don't believe in this book because most of these things should be common sense. And after reading this, I believe that still holds.
This book may be more pertinent if there are issues in a relationship or dichotomies in your expectations, religious views and morals. The book does a good at looking at all cts of dating from beginning to end: from when you start looking for a partner to when you are one year in.

While I'm still not a strong People kept telling me to read this. While I'm still not a strong advocate of this book, some of the issues covered are good reminders for any relationship. Jan 15, Parker Robb rated it it was amazing Shelves: owndatinghomepersonal-growth. This is not only the best dating book I have ever read by far, but one of the best books I have read period. I think everyone should read it and everyone could benefit immensely from it, even if you are not in the dating stage of life.
Its more about self knowledge, personal growth, and becoming an emotionally healthy person yourself so that you can relate better with people, all of which benefit ones entire life and every area within, not just dating; Dating just happens to be the context in This is not only the best dating book I have ever read by far, but one of the best books I have read period.
This book has benefitted me immensely, revealing some things about myself that I had never realized or seen before. Side note: Why do psychologists write the best dating books? Jan 26, Devon rated it it was amazing. Oh this really is full of helpful guidance and I do recommend it to anyone out there in or hoping for a dating relationship. I mean, it is super Christian. But also, it can be very hard to tell where to draw the line in a relationship and how to know when to stay or go.
I am not one to trust my emotions, they havent always steered me well in life. But this book did help to lay a foundation for establishing boundaries and I do bring it up fairly often in my own dating relationship - at times when Oh this really is full of helpful guidance and I do recommend it to anyone out there in or hoping for a dating relationship.
Jan 21, Carolyn Page rated it it was amazing Shelves: christianity. A plus. I love this book. It's from a Christian perspective, but it is mostly common sense. It addresses sex and physical boundaries, but it isn't fixated on it thank goodness.
It is about good boundaries of every sort, and addresses dating as it's supposed to be, and doesn't talk down to those who would like to date without a chaperone sitting ten feet away. As someone who's made mistakes in dating, this is the book I'm going to keep on my shelf for when my children get to inquiring about how A plus.

I wish I had this resource! Jun 15, Trevor rated it liked it Shelves: christianityrelationships. This book was decent. Like all dating books written in the s, it is in part responding to I Kissed Dating Goodbye and I felt like it was a little too pro-dating at times.
However, that's not the purpose of the book. The book outlines a lengthy series of potential problems in your dating relationships and how to avoid them or solve them.
In this I thought it was well done but I do not think it would be helpful or encouraging for teenagers. View all 5 comments. Mar 28, Chloe rated it it was amazing. This book is incredible, I havent read a lot of books on dating so I dont have a lot to compare to. This book shows people who are dating and those who arent how to set boundaries for dating in a Christian way.
As a person who is not dating anyone at the moment, this book had me evaluate what I want when I am dating someone and what kind of person I want to be and what kind of person I want to be with.
This book also made me realize what boundaries I do have set and gave me reassurance and I realized what boundaries I do need to set. While reading this, I took several notes and identified areas I can grow.
Additionally, I gained more support for several life choices I have made. I really enjoyed how each chapter ended with take away points to emphasize on key points. This book covers a lot about dating and I feel that I better understand dating and all of the components that come with dating. Financial involvement? Individual responsibilities?

I guess I was more looking for "Boundaries in intimate relationships" instead. I'm not religious, but in the other "Boundaries" books it was much easier to go along with the Christianity stuff.
There are often important lessons that are exemplified in the Bible, which I can appreciate. However, this book focuses way too much on the "when to have sex" boundary, so basically after you're married fine for others, but not how I live my life. The whole time I was reading this book I was thinking Like stealing passwords and spying on you without your knowledge? Disrespecting you in front of others?
Trying to stir up drama with your friends and family? Literally anything boundary-defying that happens after you find yourself in a relationship with someone? After reading Dr. I love how specific and direct he is so I enjoyed most of the book. I get this book is about dating, but I read it while single in the hopes that it would put dating in perspective and help me navigate that in the future. Long story short: great practical help in dating, tread carefully if single.
I read this book because I was looking for material to use in conjunction with high school sex education material in a home school situation, so this review will focus on the benefits it has for discussion between parents and teens who are not yet or just beginning to be interested in dating. The book was written partially as a response to I Kissed Dating Goodbye, and the accompanying message preached in some Christian circles that dating is destructive, selfish, and inherently painful.
The authors disagree, and think dating, when done by healthy people working toward maturity, can facilitate important developmental processes that prepare you to be a good spouse, whether or not you marry the person you date.
I think it would make for interesting discussions to read the two books side by side. The authors are both psychologists with lots of counseling experience, so the advice they give is grounded in Christian psychology more than in Bible study or personal experience, which makes it different from what you find in some other books that are more pastoral in focus.
They frequently back up what they say with Scripture passages and principles that support the concepts, but the many of the concepts themselves transference, co-dependence, parental bonding issues, etc.
Boundaries in dating by henry cloud
This book is not geared toward high school students. A premise of the book is that dating is for adults.
People who have not reached a certain level of maturity, who have not clearly identified their goals and values, have not taken ownership of their spiritual life and decisions, who do not know who they are and what they want in life will not likely have healthy relationships, and will wreak havoc on themselves and others.
So, the primary audience of the book is single, independent adults. But the authors acknowledge that age and maturity do not necessarily go hand in hand, and mature teens are perfectly capable of dating responsibly and productively.

However young people living at home with their parents are not the primary audience. Much of the book presumes you have a dating past to analyze or a current serious relationship to work on, but the many of the discussions could still be valuable for teens who are not dating yet, because they present lots of examples of what healthy and unhealthy ways of relating look like.
There is also good advice about how to start a relationship off well, how to set and maintain healthy personal boundaries, and how to guard against destructive patterns in relationships. There is a lot of discussion of what it means to be honest in a relationship, and lots of scenarios that show what it looks like when someone is not being honest with themselves, or about themselves, what it looks like when someone else is not giving you space to be honest with them, and how much space you should give someone to learn and grow in their ability to be more honest.
Boundaries in Dating
There is a good section on what leading someone on looks like and how deceptive and very destructive it is. There is also a list of deal breakers that no one should put up with in a relationship.
Interestingly enough, top on the list is deception or lying. Some of the things should be no-brainers addiction, violence, faithlessnessbut it also includes refusal to respect boundaries, and what that looks like. There is good information on how recognizing patterns in the kind of people you attract or are attracted to can help you identify areas of immaturity, brokenness, or unresolved hurt in your life that you need to address. There is a valuable discussion of what to do if you notice a big split between the people you are attracted to romantically and the people you would choose as friends, since this is usually an indication that you need to deal with some hurt or unresolved issue in your own soul.
Healthy people develop romantic feelings for people that make good friends too.
This book encourages and equips people to work through issues in relationships, and use dating experiences to spur personal character development and movement toward more wholeness and maturity. It gives lots of practical suggestions for how to try to work through a number of common problems before bailing on the relationship.
