Lovereading view...

Original. Honest. Life-changing. The bestselling guide to love – now in a brilliant new edition!

If you study people who are so good at relationships you discover it’s not about their personality or gender or how self-sacrificing they are. Those who are great in all relationships usually do have to work at it – the secret is that they know exactly where to put their efforts. They know The Rules of Love. In this book these Rules are revealed, so you too can benefit from the simple principles of forming and sustaining strong, enduring and ultimately, life enhancing relationships.


The Rules of Love A Personal Code for Happier, More Fulfilling Relationships by Richard Templar

Love matters. Whether it’s the romantic kind or the emotional bond between you and family or friends. Indeed latest research suggests that those who love and are loved are significantly more likely to be alive in 10 years time than those without love in their lives. Love makes us happy, and the happier we are, the longer it seems we tend to live.

But it isn’t always easy to love and be loved. Love is also complicated. Relationships are invariably complex and they need to be attended to, nurtured, worked at, and invested in. It’s all too easy to neglect relationships – often without realising it – and this benign neglect leaves you one day wondering why this special relationship has crumbled, unravelled, waned or lost its sparkle. Forming good relationships isn’t easy either. Same sex relationships can be tricky enough (mothers and daughters, brothers and brothers) but when it’s the opposite sex – especially boyfriend/girlfriend) you have the added complication that the other person is wired completely differently and may see things in completely different ways.
