One's entire life is connected to love. Whether "in love" with someone special or simply loving others, we all make major decisions in life based upon our beliefs about love. Love is, therefore, a very important thing to understand. But, who provides us with all of this knowledge and advice? Historically, the two main sources have been grandma and Hollywood. It's true. We get married because of pithy sayings from grandmas and touching scenes in chick flicks that make us cry. These pools of information are obviously a bit unreliable when one's entire future is at stake.
This book takes a uniquely intellectual approach to love and it's inevitable partner; heartbreak. The result provides an eye-opening, provocative, thoughtful and sensible perspective on love. We all live in a world full of confusing ideas and beliefs. Love, glorious love, stands at the top of all of this confusion and yet, we make decisions about our entire lives based upon that simple word. It would be wise to understand love more completely before those decisions are made. This book is designed to be an education about love and all of its confusing properties.
The reader will learn about seven precise steps that cause people to fall in love and about the five distinct times we are willing to say "I love you" to another human being. Sadly, the reader will, also, learn about how, when things go badly in our love lives, we end up heartbroken. Understanding what heartbreak is and why it is so totally depressing is one of the lessons that will be covered.
