This is not just a dating book. It is a virus scan for your love life.

Why do so many of us commit to the wrong person – maybe more than once? Most believe that attraction and compatibility are the keys to relationship success when, in reality, these are red flags in 15-20% of the population.

"If hindsight is 20/20 vision,
dating radar is x-ray vision."

When it comes to love, the brain is irrational and shortsighted. We make decisions based on incomplete information, biased understanding, and strong emotion. Love truly is blind. That's why you need dating radar—it gives you a way to detect hazards you might otherwise miss by recognizing:

  • warning signs of certain personalities that can spell love relationship danger
  • ways that they can jam your radar (deceive you)
  • where your own blind spots might be

Attorney, mediator, and social worker Bill Eddy and relationship expert Megan Hunter equip readers to see through the blinding haze of new love and spot potential toxic relationships before it’s too late!

A relationship manual intended to help the unwary avoid the land mines that litter the dating landscape.
