Product Description

Are you the Fallback Girl?

If you've ever found yourself in a relationship that feels and seemingly looks like one but you're struggling with commitment or you've been in the ambiguous territory of a 'casual relationship', you've likely tried to change them, wondered what you 'did' to cause this, what you can do to win their love and commitment, or even whether you're going crazy.

Mr Unavailable and the Fallback Girl is the definitive guide to understanding the relationship between emotionally unavailable men and the women that love them. From explaining how and why they blow hot and cold, to where that future they promised went to, how you've ended up being a booty call, why you've been together for a gazillion years but aren't going anywhere, and more importantly how and why you're involved with them in the first place, all of the answers are here.

You know you're dealing with unavailability when you ask stuff like

What happened to that 'great guy' from the beginning?


Why won't he break up or stay away if he doesn't want to commit?


What the hell did I do to make him disappear?


Is he going to leave 'her' for me?


It's because he's shy/busy/scared of his feelings isn't it?


Inspired by the real life adventures in unavailability of Natalie Lue, Mr Unavailable and the Fallback Girl is an empowering, entertaining and inspiring read that will wise you up to pitfalls such as men who aren't over their exes, Future Fakers, guys that have more baggage than a Heathrow terminal and reappearing childhood 'sweethearts'. If you want to understand your own availability, and why commitment in a healthy relationship is eluding you, Mr Unavailable and the Fallback Girl is your guide to being available and attracted to healthy, available partners.

About the Author

Back in the summer of 2005, Natalie Lue was a single, advertising executive wondering out loud on her blog why she had a penchant for unavailable men. Using her site BaggageReclaim.com to answer that question while transforming her life, her blog has become a go-to source for understanding emotional unavailability, commitment, dating, relationships and self-esteem while inspiring many thousands of people to change their own relationship habits.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lifesaver! 13 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book (I bought the ebook but will treat myself to the print version too) saved my sanity and stopped me from getting into deep water with an ex (married) who tracked me down on Facebook. It would be equally helpful to anyone struggling with contradictory relationship behaviour (including their own), and/or constantly ends up in unsatisfying relationships.
The author has lived it and is absolutely clear on how to turn your life around - the answer lies with you. Not him!
It's helped me in dealings with friends, colleagues and family too.
No book (apart from the Bible) has had such a positive influence on my life. I've read and binned a dozen self-help relationship books but this ones a keeper.
I'm really grateful to the author. Thoroughly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book ever! 4 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Recieved this book this morning and have not been able to put it down until it was finished.

It was like reading about me. Just brilliant and a huge wake up call.

If you are looking at purchasing this book it is probably because you are in desperation over some guy that you believe is the 'one' but for some reason he wont commit, leave his wife, blows hot and cold etc. But you love him right and you know deep down that he loves you and that one day it will all be happy ever after.

That was me yesterday when I ordered this book. Having read it I feel like a different person and am not going to be available for Mr Unavailable again.

Just brilliant (and believe me I have read so many books about this kind of stuff!) I have never ever left a review for any purchase form Amazon before and I order my life from here, but just had to write something because this book is the best thing I have ever read and the author should be sainted!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish I'd found this book 20 years ago! 8 Feb 2012
By Eva
Format:Paperback
Very easy to read, very simple to understand and I can recognise every single one of my ex boyfriends throughout the book! It is written in a lovely matter of fact way. I've really enjoyed reading it and have found out lots about me. I can now at least see the signs of an emotionally unavailable man which will hopefully save me from heartache, although it has made me wonder whether emotionally available actually exist!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wondeful and very inspiring lecture. 25 Jan 2012
By Lulu
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have just broke up of an unhealthy relationship and felt a bit sad. This book
opened my eyes to my doubts, it was therapeutic to read, I was not alone.
I was dating unavailable men since my youth, without knowing why. Now Iam
single, independent and very happy with my life again. I do not need to
find love in the worng places again, this book changed my life forever.
I wish, it will change yours for the better too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally ended a 12 year infatuation 8 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback
This book was the kick up the bottom I needed. I read it over 8 hours. It was horrifying to think what I thought was my unique circumstance is in fact common as muck. The book lead me to have counselling and I will be forever grateful to Ms Lue. She has changed my life! Ms Lue, from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a must for anyone who is struggling in a relationship with an emotional unavailable man. It's also packed full of practical real advice about the different types of men out there and how to spot warning signs whilst dating. The author gives you an insight into her own experiences. Definitely worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 25 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very thorough, clever and insightful book. I recognised myself (and many of my exes) in it. I'm sure this will help me stay away from the wrong men in the future.

Pursuing or having relationships with Mr Unavailable is symbolic of your need to learn to love yourself more and to set some boundaries and have better standards. &quote;

You’ve become so heavily invested in the idea of him and the relationship that the reality of who he is hasn’t caught up with the fantasy created by your betting on potential. &quote;

&quote;
The only reason why a woman pursues a man who is a total flip-flapper who doesn’t know his arse from his elbow is because she has low self-esteem and is afraid to let go of the idea of him and the relationship and accept the reality. &quote;
