101 RELATIONSHIP MYTHS

How to Stop Them from Sabotaging Your Happiness

by Tim Ray


Tim's latest book 101 Relationship Myths was released by Findhorn Press in the UK and US in 2012. The book has also been released in Danish, Korean, Chinese (Taiwan), Portuguese (Brazil) and Polish.

 

Since the book's original release in Danish in Denmark in Fall 2010, Tim's powerful and provocative book has created quite a stir. 53,000 copies of the book have now been printed in Denmark and the reader response has been amazing. People are really talking about Tim’s unique contribution to a subject that occupies so many people’s minds.


So what’s all the excitement about?


Well, in this entertaining and thought-provoking book, Tim presents a revolutionary new way

of looking at our relationships and why they can be so problematic – and then he goes on to offer some refreshing, new advice as to what we can do about it.

The book’s basic premise is that most of us believe in a wide range of myths about men and women, love and relationships that we’ve never questioned. And it’s our unquestioned belief

in these myths that confuses us and makes us unhappy in our relationships. To help readers understand the power of myths in our lives, Tim identifies some of our most common “relationship myths”. And then he shows us how we can free ourselves from them. The result

is much greater clarity, joy and love in our relationships.


The unique concept behind the book

A myth is a story or tale that people believe in that has nothing to do with reality. Like people believing the Earth was flat before Columbus sailed to America. The same goes for relationships. There are a lot of myths about relationships that run people’s lives, which they haven’t questioned.


Now for the first time, in this groundbreaking book Tim Ray identifies many of our most basic myths about relationships and shows us how to question them with his simple mythbusting techniques. Something which has never been done before.


Examples of some of the collective myths which Ray investigates are:
My happiness is dependent on my partner.
If you love me, you’ll do what I want.
If I try hard enough, my partner will sooner or later change.
I’m more selfish than my partner if I don’t do what my partner wants.
I know what is best for my partner.
A relationship can only work if you compromise.
A relationship is only a success if it lasts until death do us part.
I need a partner to be happy.
It’s better to be in a relationship than to be single.
I can only experience the love that I seek with one special person.
Strong sexual attraction means we’re a good match.
Men and women are different.


Once he identifies the myths, Ray then uses his simple mythbusting technique to find out whether or not this story or idea has anything to do with reality. The results as we have heard from Ray’s clients and readers are amazing. (More clarity and love in their relationships).

What people are saying about the book:

 

Are you unhappy with a partner, or feel you aren't getting your needs fulfilled in your relationship? Before you change your significant other, you might want to change your way of thinking — because there might really be something to that old "it's not you, it's me" cliche.

Edgy journalist, blogger, and couples counselor Tim Ray keeps it real with his direct approach to love and happiness in his confrontational new book 101 Relationship Myths. Ray’s book opens up gently blasting women’s magazines, many of which are responsible for providing dubious relationship advice to its (female) readers.
