Great Audio Books About Dating

August 31, 2010

As you sit in your car, making the long, arduous one-hour commute to work, you find yourself stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic. This day is no different then any other: you’re running late, your hair is a frizzy nightmare, and you forgot to wear that cute new low-cut top that would certainly impress your new co-worker. You flip annoyingly through the channels on the radio, unsatisfied with your usual “make it to work on time” iPod mix. Instead, mariachi music blurs in and out of your go-to channel, “Doctor Love.” You catch glimpses of the Love Doctor’s recent caller amidst blaring horns and crooning that sounds awfully like, “mi amore!” You listen half-heartedly to the caller describing her addiction to chocolate and romantic comedies, how she is in love with her best friend who “thinks” he’s gay. She thinks she can turn him straight. You annoyingly flip off the radio, as you think to yourself, “Too close to home.” After years of making this commute, you become determined to make use of this time to get your act together; you don’t want to be single forever. At last, you resolve to buy some audio books on dating. You’ll have to call a girlfriend later who has every one on the market.

  4. “Boundaries in Dating: Making Dating Work” (2006) Dating can be exciting, but it is definitely not easy. How do you know where the relationship is going? Would you work better just as friends?

Their book also highlights some of the important benefits of dating with boundaries.
