After a break-up Little Debbies, chocolate, and the charity of friends could not console, Dr. Duana Welch had the epiphany that transformed the way she lived her love life, leading to verifiable, objective answers to her questions - and yours. The only fact-based audiobook to take men and women from before-you-meet until you commit, Love Factually blends heart, soul - and evidence. In a genre long on opinion and short on proof, Love Factually puts all the evidence in your corner for the most important and daunting task of our lives: finding and keeping The One.

This is a great, science based book that provides some tough to hear advice to men and women on dating and finding commitment. I would strongly recommend it to anyone that is single or currently dating.
The framework discussed is excellent and deserves merit. The rest of the book is disgusting. It encourages women to manipulate men to get them married for their money. It encourages men to be weak beta males so that women can take them for everything.
"Science Based Courtship"
From where to look for a new mate through to marriage, Dr. Welch offers advice on finding a life partner for marriage-minded adults. Her tone is empathetic and her material is thorough - even providing a few word-for-word scripts for difficult conversations like:
Bringing up (or having) sex too soon
Turning down a date
Saying "no" to cohabitation
I haven't found my life partner (yet), but I feel like I have a plan and if I just employ this ten-step process, it might just work.
"Interesting and informative read!"
I enjoyed being able to read this while in the car on a roadtrip. I think having the print version as well may be helpful to be able to refer back to some specific suggestions that the author makes, but I also like being able to hear her voice reading her own work.
For me it was the ending when she both lifted up the reader and acknowledged the vulnerability and fear that is involved in dating. She validated the reader.
I like that she read her own book; it comes across that she cares very much about the topic and the readers' success in using the material in a practical way. She has a good voice for reading.
Being hard to get is a good thing when it comes to early relationship formation!
I wrote in to the author with a personal question, as she invited readers to do, and she responded within a few hours with terrific advice. I very much appreciate that she can take my specific situation and apply science to it.
This book is the only dating advice men or women will ever need. Get it. Read it. Heed it.
"Helpful information - book form is better"
Yes - because there are pointers and tips you need to repeat. This is why having the book format would probably be better so you can refer back to it.
There aren't characters - this is a self-help book.
I never like it when an author reads their own work. It sounds contrived and not as good as when a professional actor or narrator does it.
No. It was too long, but it was easy to listen to the whole book.
This helped me through a rough time, and actually had some good advice I hadn't heard before. So I really liked the book.
"Thorough dating manual"
Loved it. Good to consume, for a single again married person it is a balm to my soul.
"Great for ladies"
Great book for the ladies but, little help for guys.
But thanks for the insight.
