If you always experience the same unhappy endings in your relationships, All the Good Ones Aren't Taken offers an empowering approach to changing your romantic life.  Dr. Debbie Magids will help you understand the patterns of behavior that are keeping you stuck and teach you to make changes in the way you think, behave, and feel, so that you can find the love you want.
 
Who are you?
 
The Old Faithful, who longs for the one she can't have and can't move forward.
 
The Whirlwind Dater, who constantly dates whoever she can but has difficulty finding a permanent mate.
 
The Standstill, who has done a lot of work on becoming the best woman she can be, but rarely dates and has a difficult time relating to men on an intimate level.
 
The Forbidden Fruit Hunter, who gets involved with men who are married, already have a girlfriend, or are still hung up on an ex and therefore emotionally unavailable.
 
The Compassionate Rescuer, who always dates the guy who has problems, putting her energy into "fixer upper" boyfriends.
 
The Wanderer, for whom just one man is not enough to fill the void, so she always has a lover or potential boyfriend on the side.
 
The Uptown Girl, who is attracted only to men with money, prestige, and looks.
 
The Runaway Bride, who is good at relationships until asked to commit - then she finds a way to end the relationship, pronto.

From the Inside Flap:

Are you a serial dater?  Stuck in a relationship that’s going nowhere?  Can’t move on from a past love?  Never been in love?  If you long for a permanent, committed, loving relationship, then Dr. Debbie Magids has the key to unlocking your heart. 
 
All the Good Ones Aren’t Taken fully addresses the psychological reasons why women remain single despite wanting to be part of a permanent romantic relationship.  Rather than focusing on where to meet men, how to behave on a date, or whether to call him when he doesn’t call you, All the Good Ones Aren’t Taken focuses on discovering how you are unknowingly preventing yourself from creating the relationship you want. 
 
Dr. Debbie has discovered eight styles of behavior patterns that are typical of dissatisfied singles and she will help you to identify which one describes your romantic history.  You will learn about the origin of your subconscious behaviors, thoughts, and feelings and recognize just how you are choosing to travel down dead end paths again and again.  You will finally start to understand why you make the relationship choices you do. 
 
Dr. Debbie provides very practical advice on what to do to turn your romantic fortune around.  You will also learn how to:
-break patterns of thinking that cause you to feel unattractive, helpless, and hopeless
-build bridges of intimacy and create healthy boundaries in relationships
-take practical steps toward changing your behavior patterns
 
All the Good Ones Aren’t Taken provides tools for change that will allow you to reconnect with your deepest emotional and spiritual self and bring yourself closer to the loving, committed relationship you desire.
