Summary

Love is one of our strongest biological drives, but it can be frustratingly elusive and misunderstood. Music, literature, and movies are filled with common folklore about love, and millions of TV viewers tune in to shows like The Bachelor and read the latest relationship tome with one simple hope: to uncover some nugget of mystic wisdom that will help them understand the exciting, addictive, insane experience called love.

Men Chase, Women Choose is the first book to offer cutting-edge research that explains how the brain works when two people first meet, start to date, fall in love, and then move into real long-term love. Maslar's unique approach brings together the latest and most relevant neurological, physiological, and biochemical research on the science of love while incorporating stories and examples of composite characters based on participants of her popular classes and seminars. She explains that love is actually neural activity as well as the presence or absence of certain neurotransmitters that bathe the brain, and it follows a precisely timed path of four easy-to-understand phases: the exciting norepinephrine-charged meeting phase; the addictive dopamine dating phase; the insane falling in love and losing your mind phase; and finally the safe, warm and wonderful true long-term love phase.

For the past decade Maslar has made it her mission to learn all she can about the science behind falling in love, including its evolutionary benefits. Her goal - and the purpose of this book - is to help men and women find and maintain love by understanding and applying the science behind it.

The bottom line? We actually can have long-lasting, nourishing, exciting, passionate love with little or no risk!

Excellent advice for dating and relationship

I listened to tons of relationship coaches, but this is the best one. $8 is nothing compared to the invaluable information the material provides. I am a young Asian dude, but recommend it to all types of people who either are seriously searching for romantic relationships.

Fascinating!!!

Makes so many things make so much sense just by understanding the science of falling in love. Great for men and women both in loving relationships, relationships in trouble, or single.

Eye Opening

Holy cow!
I never understood this before! Now I know.
This was an eye opener and I have so much better understanding of why getting into a sexual relationship or getting sexual too early in one and ‘hoping’ for a real relationship to come out of it was doomed to fail...
I love that she combines science into an applicable understanding!

Worth a second listen

Definition of truth: hard words to hear.
Changes your entire approach to mid-life dating, knowing that women MUST be the pursued and NOT the pursuer. It's just the way Mother Nature made us. Once you accept this fact, dating becomes a little less stressful.
A good read.
