  • Author: Yaacov Deyo & Sue Deyo

If you’re ready to end the dating phase of your life forever by finding your lifelong love, you’re ready for: SpeedDating

With SpeedDating, a comprehensive dating guide, you’ll speed through the dating phase of your life into a committed, lifelong relationship, avoiding go-nowhere entanglements and other dating pitfalls.

The dating-world myth that evaluating a relationship takes months and months — or worse, years and years — causes unnecessary emotional complications, heartache, and time spent in dead-end relationships. With this book in hand, you’ll know before you invest your heart whether a relationship has a future. And when you fall in love, SpeedDating will help you determine if that love can last a lifetime. The SpeedDating process helps you find your lifelong love — not a fleeting romance that leaves you back where you began — single. SpeedDaters save the romance for the right relationship.

SpeedDating is best known for its fast, fun, 7-minute round-robin dating events, which have been featured in major media such as the New York Times and People. But the SpeedDating approach shared in this book takes you beyond the first date to help you reach your goal: marriage in the quickest possible time to a person you love who will cherish the real you forever.

Whether you’re new to the dating scene, a veteran, or just returning, SpeedDating will put you on the fast track to a healthy, committed, lifelong relationship.

A must read tool for anyone on the dating scene I started reading the SpeedDating book about a month ago. I was skeptical at first as to how useful the information might be to me. Well, I'm only half-way through the book and have already drawn the conclusion that the information I've absorbed is invaluable. I am able to use examples provided in the book to reflect on past dating/relationship experiences and make connections with respect to the mistakes and errors in judgement that I have made in the past. I fully intend to complete the reading and pass it on to a lady friend of mine who is also in relationship limbo. My hope is that my future judgement lapses will be less and that I will not waste my time (and the time of others) in meaningless relationships. I recommend this book to anyone on the dating circuit, regardless of religon. While the cost of a hardbound book can scare off potential readers, think of it this way: The cost of this book is far less than one bad date. I would much rather spend my time curled up on the couch with quality reading than spend an evening looking at my watch wondering when the "date" will end. And when that "bad date" ends, where will I be: At home, curled up on the couch reading or watching TV, a bad taste in my mouth and alot less money in my pocket. A no brainer to me. Thank you Sue and Yaacov.
Don't Date Without This Book! When you're ready to stop wasting time dating the wrong person, read this book. The Speeddating way is to ask your date the right questions early in the courtship to spot the red flags BEFORE you find yourself deeply involved with this person for the wrong reasons-reasons like convenience, security/lifestyle or simply because the sex is just too good! Asking targeted questions also helps you to discover your own core values and to search for a life partner who will share those values. The methodology outlined in this book significantly reduces the pain of dating. Believe me! Reading this book gave me new insight into why I married my ex-husband. We were what the authors call "defaulters-those who become so enmeshed in a relationship before making a commitment that they never really know where dating ends and the relationship begins." After living together in college and then moving cross country together for his law school, we eventually felt obligated toward marriage. We'd joke that our grandchildren's running gag about us would be, "Our grandparents lived together for 30 years and were married for 3." So we ultimately married because we couldn't imagine living without each other-not because we were so deeply in love-but because our coupledom was such a comfortable and professional and economically sustaining habit and because everyone in our families treating us accordingly. It took this book to clarify the obvious: that dating is a process, dating is not the relationship. Based on a system of core values that started to emerge when we discussed having children, my ex and I couldn't have been more diametrically opposed in the areas of religion, lifestyle and balancing household responsibilities. So, please, save yourself heartache and years of treading water in a wrong relationship. If you're not on the same page as your partner, it's because YOU didn't ask the right questions and align yourself with someone whose heart is in the same place as yours. You want to be with someone in whom you see greatness and who sees greatness in you. This book shows you how to take responsibility for who you really are and how to attract the partner who will help you realize your full potential.
