Stéphanie Hahusseau

A Short Guide to a Happy Love Life For (Slightly) Complicated People Publication date : May 7, 2010

For many of us, finding happiness in love is not easy. For some, it is finding a soul mate that seems difficult. For others, it is making a relationship last that is hard. Some suffer because they are too passionate, others because they never feel that they are “in love”.

Much of the advice that is given on the subject of love and on how to “manage” its ups and downs — “don't lose your head”, “avoid conflict to make things last” — is totally useless. And so we end up feeling that we are to blame and that we have failed in our relationships.

This book aims to help us have a happier love life.

• The author has written several successful works for the general reader.

• This highly accessible book, which is both sensitive and humorous, is a joy to read.

• Clear explanations so we can understand our “love profile”.

• Practical advice to enable us to live through the successive steps in a relationship or love affair more happily.

• Tests and practical tips that have been shown to work.
