More About True Love Lasts by James Wegert
Written by a school counselor who partially messed up his own life and who has seen many others mess up their lives by making bad dating choices, True Love Lasts communicates in a down-to-earth manner important information about healthy relationships that teens and young adults need to know - with the goal of helping to significantly reduce the number of broken hearts and the divorce rate in our society. Wegert suggests a strong approach to dating as an alternative to the devastating weak approach to dating that's constantly being promoted by the media and our popular culture. This book is very similar to the books Straight Talk About Teen Dating and Straight Talk About Dating except that it has a character emphasis instead of a Christian emphasis. From the Author This book was written in order to communicate crucial information that can help people to maximize the possibility that one day they'll find true love and have a lifelong loving marriage. Here's some of the main points that I explain in detail in the book: 1. Many teens and young adults start dating before they're ready and use the disastrous weak approach to dating in which dating choices are made mainly based upon liking someone, feelings, and looks. Unfortunately, this approach usually leads to a broken heart 2. A good amount of time and effort needs to be put into preparing yourself for a healthy relationship 3. If you prepare yourself for a healthy relationship by learning when, who, and how to date - you're more likely to make good dating choices and have a lifelong loving marriage 4. It's important that you become a strong person before you start dating and that you only date another strong person 5. If at all possible, you should try to find a way to get to know someone before dating and you should be very selective about who you decide to date 6. Dating should be a slow process in which you carefully discover what the person you're dating is really like - and whether or not he or she possibly is the person that you want to be married to for the rest of your life 7. Many people don't realize that getting the feeling of being "in love" is relatively easy - especially during dating 8. Having the feeling of being "in love" makes people ignore danger signs and serious problems in their significant other - problems that could destroy a healthy relationship 9. True love is much more than just having the feeling of being "in love" - it's supposed to be a mutual lifelong commitment 10. Having the feeling of being "in love" and having true love aren't good enough reasons alone to get married 11. Way too many people decide to get married without going through a careful marriage decision making process and they end up getting married too quickly for the wrong reasons - often with unhappiness and divorce as the result 12. Marrying a person who isn't a hard worker almost always is a big mistake 13. The first step toward finding a person with whom you could eventually have a lifelong loving marriage is to become the type of person that you want to date - a strong person I hope that you decide to read the book
