At 61yrs old, with two failed marriages and umpteen other "relationships" with men who were unavailable for many different reasons, I have finally realised what has been going on - I have just been recreating the non relationship with my father who abandoned us when I was 2yrs old, leaving me with a mother who suffered severe depression throughout my childhood, before killing herself when I was nineteen. This book just helped me so much, not just with my "relationship addiction" but with many other aspects of my "addictive personality".

It was a book that you read once and then want to go back and start from the beginning again! Downsides are the title (how "American" and corny - I'm embarrassed for anyone to see me reading it), and the fact that, in common with all US self-help books, the author assumes that the reader has ready access to a personal therapist and/or an appropriate 12 steps programme, which many of us in the UK just don't have and can't afford. Finally (though I can hardly blame her for this!), she does warn that this is no easy fix, and could take years, so I think my chances of being in a healthy and fulfilling relationship this side of the grave are small - having said that, maybe that's better than going through all that pain yet again? At least this time I'll be putting my effort, energy and love into healing myself.

So, you've been through a bad time, you can't seem to come out the other side smiling , or maybe you can't even find the way out. So you are recommended to buy 'women who love too much'. You sit, you read, you cry, you read and somewhere, fairly near the start of the book, you realise that you are reading about yourself.
So cleverly worded it is too that you realise that once you posess this book, you have in fact taken the first step in your addiction recovery,
You need to keep it as a reference point because the journey that you're on now will be the hardest one you have ever embarked upon, believe me, I'm doing it while you read.
But it will work and now you are on the right road....

Format: Paperback
Although I found this an extremely good book - I also found it very hard to read, it almost seemed to describe my past relationships to a tee, at the beginning of the book it says "at this point you may not be able to read the book - you may need to read it later when you're at a stronger point" and that totally described me, when I first picked the book up I found it much too depressing to read as I had just come out of an extremely bad relationship, So I did as the book said, and waited until I felt a bit stonger to read it and I must say it helped me a lot, I would recommend this book to anyone who feels let down with relationships, and need some help understanding why they always seem to pick the same type of people.

Format: Paperback
A friend of mine recommended this book to me after a recent breakup as she said she thought of me the entire time she was reading. Once I began reading it I could see why!! This book completely opened my eyes as to why I was experiencing all of the terrible treatment and abuse in relationships I had, and the reasons I felt so lonely and 'on hold' when I wasn't in a relationship, and felt if only I could meet the right guy all my problems would be solved. All of my life, I believed the problem was me and I was just an overly sensitive person who did all of the 'right' things and was just unlucky in love, however, after reading this book I realised I was only a product of situations out of my control and there was an alternate, happier way to live. I feel fortunate to have discovered this book at 35 years of age, as although it has taken a failed marriage and numerous abusive relationships to get to this stage, I'm glad I have discovered this while still young and not in the later stages of life like many other women. This book has given me the freedom to know my life and relationships don't have to be this way! Although I have not had a good relationship with a man as yet (but am proud to say I have made 'me' my top priority, and have turned away many unsuitable relationships quickly!) the quality of my life has improved dramatically and I no longer have the lonely, needy feeling that was constantly a part of me. I am so much happier and fulfilled in myself, and will be forever grateful.

In addition to this book, I have also been in therapy and sought the help recommended and have read further to develop my understanding and recovery.

Format: Paperback
You think that the elusive "perfect" relationship is your every fix? You find yourself in relationships where you think, "if only him and I work on this, we'd be so happy"? Or you'd always get dumped, but the chap can't give a reason that makes sense to you, or he tells you that you're ever so nice and lovely but just not for him? Does that ring a bell? Perhaps your friends are of the opinion that you're giving too much, they might even tell you to simply stop obsessing over him! Outsh, harsh! Maybe you feel exhausted, hopeless, helpless inadequate and/or incapable of having a relationship, perhaps you even cynically make jokes about joining a convent. Or you think that you're scaring "them" off, driving them away. That's probably why you're still reading.... at least I felt like that when I went out looking for this book! To describe: It's not about how many buckets of tears you cry whilst reading. It's not about how uncanny the examples might match your own life. It's about the message behind it: I payed attention to my fresh and bleeding emotional wounds and old and ugly mental scars. In order to heal them, I apply the suitable remedy in my own time, with my own hands. I continue reading related literature, take the suggested steps fitting my circumstances and sit back, relax and see how my life takes a turn for the better, and how people who love me and care for me are literally touched, too. I have realised that there is no gap in my life, no void, no emptiness but instead I'm working on getting full of myself in the nicest possible way! That's all. A book simple to understand, easy to relate to.
