Daring to Trust Opening Ourselves to Real Love and IntimacyPrice: $8.61

Most relationship problems are essentially trust issues, explains psychotherapist David Richo. Whether it’s fear of commitment, insecurity, jealousy, or a tendency to be controlling, the real obstacle is a fundamental lack of trust—both in ourselves and in our partner.

Daring to Trust offers key insights and practical exercises for exploring and addressing our trust issues in relationships. Topics include:

  • How we learn early in life to trust others (or not to trust them)
  • Why we fear trusting
  • Developing greater trust in ourselves as the basis for trusting others
  • How to know if someone is trustworthy
  • Naïve trust vs. healthy, adult trust
  • What to do when trust is broken

Ultimately, Richo explains, we must develop trust in four directions: toward ourselves, toward others, toward life as it is, and toward a higher power or spiritual path. These four types of trust are not only the basis of healthy relationships, they are also the foundation of emotional well-being and freedom from fear

6. Red Flags of Love Fraud – 10 signs you’re dating a sociopath

Red Flags of Love Fraud 10 signs youre dating a sociopathPrice: $9.99

You’ve met someone new—someone charming, charismatic and sexy, who has so much in common with you! Oh, sometimes the story doesn’t quite add up, and you feel a little rushed, but this person is head over heels in love with you! Calling all the time! Sending texts and emails! Already talking about forever!

Is it love—or predation? “Red Flags of Love Fraud — 10 signs you’re dating a sociopath,” has the answers.

The author is Donna Andersen, who is also author of Andersen coined the term “love fraud,” and defines it as “the intentional exploitation of an individual through manipulating emotions in a personal relationship.” The people who engage in love fraud, she says, are sociopaths.

No, a sociopath is not always a deranged serial killer—that’s media hype. These people are social predators, who live their lives by exploiting others. Three million to 12 million sociopaths live among us in America. Most are not in jail—they roam freely through all segments of society. They like company, and they really like sex, so sociopaths are always on the hunt for a hookup.

This book explains how sociopaths target and pursue romantic relationships, which are inevitably exploitative relationships. The information is based on more than 2,800 cases that Andersen has collected through, and on the results of two Internet surveys completed by Lovefraud readers who loved and lived with these human predators.

• The top 10 signs of sociopathic suitors (Number One: charisma and charm)
• Why anyone is vulnerable—especially powerful women
• The dangers of online dating
• Why there’s no such thing as “just sex”
• Three steps everyone can take to protect themselves from love fraud

For the first time, “Red Flags of Love Fraud” explains how sociopaths seduce their targets, what makes people vulnerable, and how to avoid these human predators. It’s a must-read book for anyone who is looking for a partner—and anyone who is mystified by the partner they have.

7. How To Believe In Love Again: Opening to Forgiveness, Trust and Your Own Inner Wisdom

How To Believe In Love Again Opening to Forgiveness Trust and Your Own Inner WisdomPrice: $6.99

Most of us start out believing that love can transform our lonely existence into something better. When that doesn’t work out as hoped for or planned, do we dare dream again? How do we get past early, disillusioning experiences which stand solidly in our path to ever believing in love again?

Based on both her professional and personal experiences, Laura Lee Carter, also known as the “Midlife Crisis Queen” online, here weaves together theory, inspiration and practical advice, to help you become a private detective in service to your own self- awareness and personal development. If you wish to gather a deeper understanding of why you fear love so much, and then search out those experiences in your past that have kept you feeling stuck for so long, this book can help.

Together we will explore those negative experiences from your past where you lost your trust in others. Only by first raising your awareness of sensitive areas around your own personal roadblocks like shame, trust, and forgiveness, and then creating new ways to work through past emotional obstacles, is it now possible to access a healthier belief in all that love might have to offer you now.

8. The Courage to Trust: A Guide to Building Deep and Lasting Relationships

The Courage to Trust A Guide to Building Deep and Lasting RelationshipsPrice: $9.99

You’re probably familiar with the old saying, once bitten, twice shy. It describes a painful uncertainty many of us feel every day as we try to engage with other people. Acts of betrayal from our pasts can lead us into long cycles of wariness and mistrust. An inability to trust wisely can lead us to loneliness and isolation, or worse—putting our trust in the wrong people too easily.

The good news is that the ability to trust is both a choice and a skill that you can develop. You do not have to be controlled by the past. To a child, trust is a feeling that comes and goes, always under the influence of other people. Only as an adult can you learn how and when to trust more wisely. This book is a warm and friendly guide to achieving greater self-confidence and deeper levels of intimacy and trust.

Helped along by the book’s exercises and ideas for self-reflection, you’ll begin to develop new patterns of trust. Start by getting comfortable trusting your own instincts. Then, experiment with developing relationships based on mutual trust and curiosity. Learn from and then let go of old betrayals that have impaired your trust-building skills, and approach the rest of your life with a renewed sense of purpose and belonging.

Trust Betrayal Dealing with breach of trust healing and learn how to trust again by David M MastersPrice: $8.97

In Trust Betrayal, Dealing with breach of trust, healing and learn how to trust again the author explores the many types of betrayals that can take place in one’s life, how the pain from these experiences can block the suffering victims from untold peace, love and prosperity, how to promote healing and re-engage good fortune and how to live a happier, more productive and better life.

No stranger to the emotional pain of betrayal, the author helps the reader discover how the relationship enabled the transgressor to conduct the breach of trust in the first place. Though thorough self-examination, documentation and analysis, helps the victim regain control of their life.

The emotional pain from failed relationships can cause the injured party’s life to implode, giving way to depression and stagnation. By using the techniques provided in Trust Betrayal, Dealing with breach of trust, healing and learning to trust again, the author coaches readers through effective visualization exercises and rituals that will assist victims of betrayal to not only get back on track, but to excel in a positive future with renewed spiritual energy and awakening.

Covering a wide-range of possible betrayal of trust, no stone is left unturned, and these strategies can be applied to any type of emotional assault that has resulted in broken trust; anything from broken contracts to failed marriages. Transgressions are turned into episodic growth spurts, leading to a general understanding of the human condition, while bolstering self-growth.

The catastrophic breach of trust, once thought of as a major negative experience, can be translated into an empowering time of spiritual growth that can catapult the afflicted into a new life of love, happiness, generosity, forgiveness and renewed faith in endless possibilities.

If you’ve suffered a betrayal at the hands of another, you can reclaim your life, and enjoy the best this life has to offer by following the guidelines set forth in Trust Betrayal, Dealing with breach of trust, healing and learn how to trust again, by David M. Masters.

In the area of romance it’s not unusual to not be attentive enough to convey one’s true feelings about how much you care about the other person. You would be surprised at how easy it is to show someone how much you love them. Here’s 10 ways to communicate your love to that special person:

  1. Use those three-special-words more often, when you look into someone’s eyes and say “I love you” the brain releases oxytocin, the bonding hormone, and helps strengthen your romantic relationship.
  2. Take time to actively listen. Look at the person who is speaking, respond occasionally with some verbal cue like “hmmm,” “uh-huh” or nod your head. Together, you should set aside some time to talk (and listen) every day, and ask each other questions to clarify thoughts and get more information.
  3. Strengthen your relationship by taking time to get to know what makes your partner happy and show that you care with thoughtful little gifts and gestures. Pick up her favorite flowers occasionally; bring home his favorite snacks from the grocery store; or make a reservation at a favorite restaurant or a tee time for a round of golf.
  4. A great romantic tip and idea for men is to use a jar filled with love tokens. Make the tokens exchangeable for kisses, hugs, etc. Then, give the jar to your girl so that she can use them when she wants.
  5. Win your beloved’s heart and stomach; try out new delicacies in the kitchen. However, let not this romance stop at kitchen only and carry it forward to your dining table. Set the table with candles and go for it.
  6. Nothing would be better than spending a relaxing evening with your beloved and discussing the topics of interest with him or her.
  7. Set something aside for her every day. It might be a newspaper article you read during your commute, a link to a website you came across, or even a story you heard by the office water cooler. She will appreciate that you took a moment to think of her during the course of your day.
  8. Wrap a small mirror in a delicate lace handkerchief and beautiful ribbon, then present it to your lover.. Tell them, “I want you to know that this is my most treasured thing in life…”
  9. Summertime romanctic opportunities include everything from night time concerts to Shakespeare in the Park to renaissance festivals to ice cream cones and day trips to the beach.
  10. Guys: know her dress size, shoe and stocking size, blouse and nightgown size, bra and panty size, pants and coat size, and of course her finger size (for rings that fit).
    Gals: know his coat size, shoe and hat size, shirt and pants size, finger size (for bowling balls that fit)…

1. Just Your Type: Create the Relationship You’ve Always Wanted Using the Secrets of Personality Type

Price: $25.79

With a nod to Jung and Myers-Briggs, the Tiegers (Do What You Are, etc.) once again plumb the depths of personality type theory. This time, they apply it to the realm of committed romantic relationships, including (but not limited to) marriage. According to the authors, everyone can be characterized by one of 16 personality types; using them, we can attain a clear understanding of our partners and ourselves and achieve better communication and smoother relationships. They begin with a thorough yet succinct self-analysis to identify the “unconscious preferences” that make up one’s type: introversion or extroversion, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling and judging or perceiving. The rest of the text is a sourcebook for referencing specific combinations of types, typical communication difficulties and suggestions for how each partner can better “reach” the other. The Tiegers are adamantly opposed to popular theories of innate gender differences, as well as to the notion that relationships between people of disparate types are doomed. Ending with a concise summary of their research and a supplementary guide to professional counselors, organizations and books, the authors offer a uniquely constructive handbook for couples.

7. Relationship Rescue: A Seven-Step Strategy for Reconnecting with Your Partner

Price: $7.99

As a follow-up to his bestselling book Life Strategies, Oprah acolyte Phillip C. McGraw, Ph.D., moves from aiding the aimless individual to coaching the disconnected couple. McGraw has distilled his more than two decades of counseling experience into a seven-step strategy he calls “Relationship Rescue.”

“I’m prepared to kick a hole in the wall of the pain-ridden, unhappy maze you’ve gotten yourself into, and provide you clear access to action-oriented answers and instructions on what you must do to have what you want,” says Dr. Phil. His aim is to expose and eliminate the saboteurs that cause senseless damage to already-fragile marriages, and, like an emotional root canal, to replace them with values he says provide positive results. If you follow Dr. Phil’s strategy, he will lead you on a precise journey to uncover your heart and then share it with your partner as part of taking the “risk of intimacy.”

Dr. Phil leads you to “reconnect with your core” in the first five steps of his seven-step strategy. By no means a quick fix, there are in-depth and rigorous questionnaires, surveys, tests, and profiles that require a “brutally candid” mindset, with such fill-in-the-blanks as “List five things that today would make you fall out of love with your partner.” With this internal work accomplished, you’ll then move on to reconnecting with your partner during a two-week, half-hour-a-day short course. As a “dyad,” you and your loved one take turns giving monologues on topics such as “The most positive thing I took away from my mother and father’s relationship was…”

Once the “reconnection” has been established, Dr. Phil says the work shifts to a management role, as relationships are always a work in progress. Dr. Phil humorously refers to his own marriage throughout the book, sharing his mishaps and victories in learning to accept and enjoy what he sees as fundamental but complementary differences between men and women.
