    His last name kept distracting me I couldn t take him serious with a last name like GOOCH He recommends taking yourself on a date, with candles and bubbly.

    Finding the boyfriend within It s a simple idea, but it work When I started this book I was newly single and largely dissatisfied with life I had been neglecting my spiritual side for years, and this book helped fill a small hole inside me The book had me thinking about a lot of issues that I haven t faced over the years The book asks questions that I had not asked myself These questions are important for learning about who I am Honestly, though, after reading the book I still don t think I fully know who I am, so I guess that means this book is not going to solve everything This book does help though, for example, there was a moment I was walking alone feeling miserable, and then I imagined my boyfriend within Just the thought of him being there walking beside me completely transformed my attitude.In case anyone was interested, my boyfriend within looks like Jeremy Renner Yeah, I don t know where that came from, but he appeared to me in a vision when I was doing an hour long meditation I guess he is there whenever I want to have a date with him Maybe for some this idea of planning a date with your inner boyfriend sounds strange or silly, but honestly, I feel like taking the time to enjoy time alone is an important thing to do from time to time It s different from just being home alone watching TV It is engaging with life as though an incredibly important person is there with you to share it with I suppose that in...

    This was a really mixed read for me It was actually sort of a gag gift Someone bought it for me after a fairly bad break up, and also because they knew I generally disliked self help titles The irony of it being the last book my ex had read before the break up sure wasn t lost on me, either though the fact he read maybe one book a year should have been sign enough for me to give up in the first place But I digress The book.It had a strong biographical element to it, which loaned it some veracity, though I also struggled given that I m frankly nowhere near Mr Gooch s level of attractiveness nor as metropolitan If you think you can be aided by the experiences of a very handsome and woefully single gay man in NY, USA, though, it might be a better fit The advice itself was generalized and given catchy phrases such as To get to know the Boyfriend Within, you have to get outside yourself, and some of the exercises were interesting to me I d been single far often than I d been d...

    It is indeed practical, and reveals things you probably have thought of or come across before It is nice to have another authority affirming those ideas though, and the author conveys his points both clearly and refreshingly Understanding and loving one s self is an essential component to both self esteem and loving another person Presented in the book are several exercises that you can try that can help you find yourself, and they are useful if you take them seriously...

    I bought this book years ago, read the first couple of chapters, and decided it wasn t really for the 20 ish me Retrying it at 33, I found it relevant, in theory however, in determining that I m not really looking to date right now, its usefulness wa...

    Nice but times idealistic ways to suggest how overcome loneliness and the reality of being unable to hold relationship due of being desperate or unauthentic No matter what at the end of the book you will have strong feeling you have new good friend who is better that most psycho therapist in town

    I either lost what I just wrote or am repeating myself I really loved the introduction, but wasn t into the heart of the book Perhaps because I m a straight woman a gay friend had told me how important this book was to him, and I was intrigued , but likely bec...

    I liked this book I liked that the author wasn t qualified to give advice, but gave it based on his own accounts of what had worked for him in his life I think he gave some great ideas about finding the boyfri...
