The Shy Single
A Bold Guide to Dating for the Less-Than-Bold Dater  
By Bonnie Jacobson, Ph.D

       In my minds eye he is a perfect mate for me. He is tall, handsome, and has a warm winning smile. Whenever I pass him, and he acknowledges my presence, I can feel my heart quicken. There is only one problem – we can’t seem to get past the smiles, the ‘good mornings’ that seem to have us trapped in a endless daily ritual.

      I have never considered myself a shy individual, quite the opposite in fact. When I look back at all the failed attempts of trying to win someone’s attention I find that I could easily write a best selling comedy. The mistakes I have made throughout life have made me weary of trying my tactics once again.

       How does a single female who is career minded locate that special someone to give the love that is missing from her life? New York Psychologist Bonnie Jacsobson has provided a solution to help shy men and women overcome the barriers that are preventing them from finding one another. Her book is tailored so the individual reading it can make it into a journal. They can look back on and be reminded of ways "NOT" to keep sabotaging their chances of love.

      I am very impressed with this author’s wealth of talent and advice. Each day I find myself wanting to take that first step into ‘Mr. Rights’ life and introduce him into my world. Getting past that first hurdle is what is stopping me from finding everlasting love. I find myself asking, ‘Will he accept me for the unique person that I am’? That answer still remains to be seen. With Dr. Jacobson’s advice I have gained the courage to reach out and try it once more. Very highly recommended.
