& Taylor

A timely and practical reference for women who are fearful of commitment, written in the style of He's Just Not That Into You, draws on the stories of more than one hundred women while sharing advice for seven commitment-phobic personality types, from the "Nit-picker" to the "Serial Dater." Original. 50,000 first printing.

Simon and Schuster
You May Be Commitment-Phobic If:

  • You have a mile-long list of requirements for your ideal mate

  • You go from one short-lived relationship to the next

  • You have a habit of dating "unavailable" men

  • You think many of your married friends have settled for less

  • You are constantly blowing "hot" and "cold" in your relationships

For years, it was the men who had the monopoly on commitment-phobia. Today, single women are the fastest-growing segment of the population, with over forty-seven million single women in this country and twenty-two million of them between the ages of twenty-five and forty-four. Whatever the reasons -- fear of divorce, increased financial independence, delayed motherhood -- more women than ever no longer feel the urgency, or the ability, to settle down. Lucky for this growing group of women, author and former commitment-phobe Elina Furman has written Kiss and Run, the first-ever book about female commitment anxiety.

Filled with fun quizzes, first-person testimonials, and step-by-step action plans, Kiss and Run includes the top-five panic buttons, advice for curbing overanalysis, and tips for fixing negative commitment scripts. You'll also find the seven types of commitment-phobes, including the Nitpicker, the Serial Dater, and the Long-Distance Runner.

Based on the stories of more than one hundred women, this straight-talking guide helps single women conquer commitment anxiety and say yes to love.
