Come on. Admit it. He may not be that into you, but were you ever really that into him? He was never "the one," but you lowered your standards and dated him in the meantime. Why? For any number of reasons: you thought dating him was better than being alone, all your friends are getting married--you name it. And before you knew it, you got hung up on the jerk. Go figure. Now clinical sexologist Kerner explores the battlefield of sex and the dismal dating treadmill, simultaneously arming women with a sharper set of insights and the tools for change.--From publisher description.
