Summary

Everybody wants someone to love and spend time with, and searching for your ideal partner is a natural and healthy human tendency. Just about everyone dates at some point in their life, yet few really understand what they're doing or how to get the best results.

In Wired for Dating, psychologist and relationship expert Stan Tatkin - author of Wired for Love - offers powerful tips based in neuroscience and attachment theory to help you find a compatible mate and go on to create a fabulous relationship. Using real-life scenarios, you'll learn key concepts about how people become attracted to potential partners and move toward or away from commitment and the important role the brain and nervous system play in this process. Each chapter explores the scientific concepts of attachment theory, arousal regulation, and neuroscience. And with a little practice, you'll learn to apply these exercises and practical techniques to your dating life.

If you're ready to get serious (or not!) about dating, meet your match, and have more fun, this book will be your guide.

Excited About Love

I have spent years moving too fast in relationships and this will allow me to have a set tools to properly manage the amount of time I spend determining whether I've met my match or need to keep options open.
I recommend this is for everyone, even married couples.

Great book! Great info. Didn't like the narrator.

The info Stan presents is perfect for learning how to date and about oneself. The narrator's voice inflections made it sound like he was reading to children. He would "do" the voices for people in the story,, but they didn't seem to deflect the distress or feeling that the words conveyed which felt confusing.

Good for you, if you're an anchor

I enjoyed this book because it helped me identify some communication styles that were not helping me. He introduced me to 3 styles of dating. I do think the author did make it seem like unless you're an "anchor" or dating an anchor the relationship will be difficult. Which was a bit disappointing.

Enjoyed!

I didn't want it to end,
however, I found the suggested dialogue was not always realistic. Excellent content. Really gives you something to think about.

Great "read" and highly recommended

I found this book to be well researched, well written, and well delivered. I thoroughly enjoyed the information and how it was presented. I'd highly recommend this book for anyone who is dating, looking for love, or any relationship of substance.

Very elementary stuff and bad narration.

This is a book for people no nothing about physiology and basic behavior. Absolutely no insights for a normally educated person. Although I only could get through chapter 6. I’m returning. And the narrator sounds like a voice from pharma ads. Awful.
