You're ready for a new romance, but how can you avoid repeating past mistakes? The author of Getting Past Your Breakup offers an essential guide to building a healthy relationship.

Plenty of dating books offer advice on how to flirt or catch someone's eye, but they won't help you make better decisions during the selection process so you can find real love. Based on years of research and work with her own clients, Susan Elliott offers a proven plan that will help you to:

Examine past relationships for unfinished business and negative patterns
Identify warning signs and red flags
Keep your standards and boundaries high, even when you're head over heels
Work through rejection, rebounding, and other bumps in the road
Decide when to take a relationship to the next level and when to say goodbye

With practical rules, strategies, and self-assessments -- including tips for dating as a parent and dating online -- Getting Back Out There will help you transition from your split to a happy, healthy new relationship.

“Elliott deserves credit for tackling so many issues involved in post-breakup life and for handling them in a plainspoken way…Her willingness to discuss everything from specific sexual issues to the right time to introduce children to a new partner is admirable. On balance, her statement that ‘this is a different kind of dating book' is accurate, and Getting Back Out There is a useful counterbalance to more-superficial books about dating and mating.”

Publishers Weekly, 12/1/14
“Elliott offers readers humble and perceptive advice for recovering from heartbreak and reentering the dating world…Elliott's wisdom—well reasoned, unassuming, and based on experience—is not to be missed.”

Library Journal, December 2014
“Extremely encouraging for those who wish to build a healthy relationship and get on with life.”

Hudson Valley News, 2/20/15
“The most valuable part of the book…is the collection of love stories at the end.”

Bookviews Blog, March 2015
“[Elliott] does not shy from the fact that exes, children, and boyfriends with kids are components of the modern dating scene.”
