As someone who has been leery of online dating, but curious, this book has been an absolute wonder! It covers everything! As a result of this book, I'm a lot more comfortable with the idea of using the internet to build relationships.
I like that the information to support my online dating is supported by books that help a person combat fear and build confidence. While never a fan of online dating, I was pleasantly surprised to see how safe it can be. I appreciated the tips on creating a profile as well. Not to mention that I'm actively building my confidence and getting help in the fear category, too. I like having the audible version of this book; it lets me internalize information as I can easily back up and listen to a section several times if I need to. Very helpful.
I really needed this reminder to be grateful; I think of myself as a basically grateful person, but this gratitude book reminded me of the ways I benefit from adopting a grateful perspective. I am grateful for two major truths from this book:
1. That mental health professionals can predict within three minutes of first meeting a couple whether their marriage will last; those who make five positive statements for every one negative statement to their spouses have a solid relationship.
2. That it's more helpful to be grateful for what your possessions do for you than for the things themselves.
The audio format makes it easy to absorb this book repeatedly, reiterating valuable truths while you get dressed or while you drive down the road. I will definitely revisit "Gratitude" on a regular basis.
