Chapter One -- The Dating Masquerade

Imagine sneaking into a glitzy costume ball where single men and women primp and prance in the hopes of finding Mr. or Ms. Right. Concealing their real personalities behind psychological "masks," the partygoers position themselves to make the best impression possible. Who knows? The next person they meet could be their long-awaited soul mate, their future husband or wife.

As the band heats up, so do the masqueraders. Ricocheting off each other like billiard balls, they jump from one masked stranger to another in search of true romance. Finally it happens: love at first disguise. A masked man and a masked woman fall in love with the image each is presenting. Perfection, bliss, happiness.

But then the inevitable happens: The ball ends, the masks come off. Now the masqueraders discover what their mate's personality is really like and their hearts harden: "How could I have been so blind? We have nothing in common!" they wail as they find themselves trapped again, miserable victims of the Dating Masquerade.

Located somewhere between never-married-land and divorcehood, the Dating Masquerade is not so much a place as a state of mind. The Dating Masquerade is where single men and women fall in love with an illusion of an ideal person, only to discover that the real man or woman is far different from the Prince Charming or Ms. Universe they envisioned.

Have you ever fallen in love with a man or woman who appeared to click with you on every possible level: psychologically, sexually, and spiritually? But then, once you got to know him or her better, you discovered that the person you shared your love and life with was truly, and almost unbelievably, incompatible with you. You were crushed to discover that your mate's most important values, goals, and desires were totally in conflict with yours. The end result: fights, tears, and ultimately a heart-wrenching breakup.

Have you resigned yourself to the fact that you will never find that special person who could be your soul mate? Perhaps you are disgusted with the dating scene; tired of pickup lines and dead-end relationships; and drowning under the anchors of rejection, frustration, and loneliness. Or maybe you are at the point where you believe that all the good men and women are either married or gay (assuming you are not).

If I'm describing you, then listen up. There is good news for you, really good news:

You are about to learn one of the most powerful dating programs available today: the LoveType system. With this program at your disposal, you will have the power to "unmask" your soul mate--to see into the true personality of every person you meet and determine if he or she is really the one for you. With this unique "X-ray vision," you can bypass the social masks that men and women show each other and find out now--not months or years from now--if someone has the potential to be your true soul mate.

By using the LoveType method, you will learn which of the sixteen LoveTypes, or relationship styles, is best suited for you in a long-term relationship. Is your best match the Idealistic Philosopher, the type of person who is passionate about relationships and discovering life's deepest meaning? Or is your chosen one the down-to-earth Administrator, a man or woman who lives in the here and now and prefers relationships that offer security and stability? Or perhaps your future mate is one of the other fourteen LoveTypes. You will know soon enough.

Once you have identified your best match, the LoveType system will teach you how to meet that person with a relaxed, no-pressure approach. It doesn't matter if you are shy and have a difficult time talking with the opposite sex. The LoveType system will show you how to create the type of rapport that can ultimately lead you to a happy, long-term relationship.

By applying the LoveType system to your dating life, you will have a wealth of information at your disposal to answer these crucial questions: 1. What is my LoveType--my unique relationship style?
2. Which of the sixteen LoveTypes is most compatible with mine?
3. Which LoveType will satisfy my sexual needs?
4. Which LoveType will provide me with the long-term emotional and/or financial security I desire?
5. Where do I meet my ideal LoveType?
6. How do I make a great first impression on him or her?
7. How can I win the heart of my ideal LoveType?
8. What kind of long-term relationship can I expect with my perfect LoveType?
9. Is the person I'm talking to right now my ideal LoveType?

Over the last four years, more than one thousand students--men and women from all walks of life--have used my LoveType system to improve their dating success.Seventy percent of these students have reported a substantial increase in dates within six months of using the system. Another ninety percent reported a significant improvement in the quality of their dates; they were meeting more compatible people and having more fun than ever before.

And best of all, many individuals reported the ultimate success story: a happy marriage which they largely attributed to the knowledge and self-confidence they gained from using the LoveType program. You, too, can begin to reap the benefits of applying the LoveType system in your dating life.

Follow the steps outlined in the chapters to come, and you may soon be walking, arm in arm, with the man or woman who is compatible with your most important values and desires--that sweetheart who will make you happy for the rest of your life.
