5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL AND INSIGHTFUL BOOK, January 3, 2015
By Dina Hill
This book is wonderful. I have been in a long term relationship for years and we never seem to get it right or communicate properly which has left much confusion in the relationship and caused regular break ups. I found that I am in a relationship with a Dismissive and everything I tried to rebuild the relationship after each break up (because yes we always end up back together) generally made it worse in the end. After reading this book, I understand his personality type and mine and am so much more understanding than I was before. This book has given me a lot of hope and a willingness not to give up on the relationship. Understanding myself and the things I do and how they reflect on the dismissive has really opened my eyes. This book gives not only insight but the tips on how to handle your issues as well as theirs to possibly receive your happy ending or at the very least recognize your personalty type so you can work on it if you need to in order to be healthier for the next relationship.
