    Wow that title is funny I'll have to get a copy. Who's the author?
    Schmaylan replied to kelseyshayne's response:
    I read a good one called " Breaking Your Addiction to a Person".. It really put into perspective how some of the things we do in a destructive relationship are based off an addiction...
    Spankyrae replied to STLEWIS87's response:
    Steve Harvey's book was great. It wasn't overly deep but then, that was the point, wasn't it? He used a just-right amount of humor in it.
    STLEWIS87 replied to Spankyrae's response:
    Yeah, i like it. It provided alot of new insight as well as some stuff i already knew. But it created a guideline for me, as a young woman, to go by.
    SMITHRL replied to STLEWIS87's response:
    What Women Want
    What Men Want
    -These two books are written by the same authors and have a lot of statistics and polls (which I like)

    Love Languages
    ***Highly recommended. Not only did it help me understand my SO better. But it also helped me understand my relationships w/ my family.

    All of these books are Christian based. I enjoyed them so much that I took notes while reading them. I know, I'm a little odd!! )
    IslandL responded:
    A great one is "The Dance of Anger" by Harriet Lerner. I remember actually hightlighting passages from that book and re-reading from time to time. She's also written several other "Dance of..." books as well.
    HermanMunster1001 responded:
    "The power of now" and
    "Road less traveled" are excellent books on Love, relationships and spiritual growth.

    Hey there....noticed your story and want to tell you something! I was raised in KS. too! I totally know what you mean about being a 'sad' fact! I moved to a larger town with more to do, larger selection of people and stuff. Made living there a little better! Now I'm in OK. Been here all my adult life. Pretty cool here. I just joined this site today. Don't know how often I'll check it. But.... appeals to be safe. Maybe we'll chat!
