Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Sep 25, Peggy rated it really liked it. Every single commitment phobic gal and guy should read this book. As soon as I picked it up, I was like oh, my God that’s me! The author outlines 7 different ways we run from commitment and why we do it I’ve pretty much done all them without even knowing it.
Actually, the guy that could be it, will be the relationship that you experience the most commitment anxiety because it is the scariest. There are suggestions on how to stop doing what we commitment phobics do. No, seriously, I will probably try to apply some of these concepts in my next relationship. I just want some good-looking men to practice on until then View all 3 comments. Jan 31, Jane rated it liked it. C’mon everyone, fess up.
This is a useful springboard to dive into your commitment issues and most people have them. But, like a college essay, Furman rams home her thesis commit dammit! She only makes exceptions to her point of view in the most dire of circumstances abuse, neglect etc and sometimes offers pretty weak arguments for commitment. From Damsel in Distress: You cry yourself to sleep for a few months B. You lose or gain weight C. You feel mopey and have a hard time concentrating D.
You pester all your friends and family members with “Why me? I think she’d be more persuasive with an assertion that breaking up with boyfriends is practise for losing loved ones through death.
Now there’s an argument I like: Anyway, it’s thought-provoking and I hope it will help me find my very own happy relationship. Feb 08, Alli rated it really liked it. Self-help books always fill me with an overwhelming sense of shame, but the epiphany I had after reading this is completely worth it.
Yes, it’s a little cheesy and dated Demi and Ashton as an example of a happy healthy relationship? Take the quiz at the be Self-help books always fill me with an overwhelming sense of shame, but the epiphany I had after reading this is completely worth it. Take the quiz at the beginning of every chapter once you get to the “type” sections, and only read the ones that you score highly on – I never would have considered myself a “Player” or “Free Spirit” or “Long Distance Runner” – told you it was cheesy but I swear to god this woman has seen inside my mind.
Instead, you have to learn to recognize triggers and warning signs and, crazy enough, stop listening to your gut. May 11, Janet rated it it was amazing Shelves: Halfway through I kept fighting the urge to pick up a highlighter and scribble all over it. I struggled for about twenty more minutes before I jumped in my car and drove to the bookstore for my very own copy.
Dlina felt so much better knowing there were women out there just as screwed up if not more so than I am! Jun 22, Bita rated it liked it Recommends it for: I appreciated the book mainly because it made me feel like I wasn’t the only ‘crazy’ self-destructive girl out there.
Jul 05, Erika rated it liked it. This book was OK – psychology lite.
I’m not the target market for it, so that may be why it didn’t speak to me. But if I had been the target, I would have felt like the book told me what my problem was but didn’t tell me how to fix it. That part seemed glossed over. I also felt like the author was assuming all of the readers were phobic to commitment, and I’m sure people’s real issues are more complex than this cut-and-dried version. But, it was entertaining.
Feb 05, Kelly rated it liked it. About half done with this, and I recognized myself in the subjects from the start.

Maybe this will help me get over my commitment and intimacy issues and I can join the rest of the world in wedded “bliss” OR I will definitively be able to answer that marriage isn’t for me. Either way, I hope I find the answer. Thanks for the lend, Peggy! You may not agree, friends, but I read the book. Feb 23, Shelley rated it it was amazing.
I have to come out and say it–there is such a thing as female commitment-phobia and I’ve seen so much of it in this generation of single women. I found this book to be a wonderful support to dealing with the fear of dating and identify the source of the phobia. A must read for any still-single girl. Mar 24, Taylor rated it liked it. I found this book to be fun and quite witty. However, the book gave a good viewof the workaholic woman and what can happen when you run away from making large romantic choices.
Overall, it was a good read. Mar 09, Kate Zirkle anr it it was amazing Shelves: This book helped me realize so much about myself. You have to be ready to accept it though. Only for mature people.
