“Lose weight. Act confident. Play hard to get.” This approach to dating doesn’t lead to love, it leads to insecurity and loneliness. In Deeper Dating, psychotherapist Ken Page, LCSW offers a new message of hope—backed by solid research. Page teaches that the key to finding love lies in our authenticity, particularly in what he calls “Core Gifts”–the places of our deepest sensitivity, tenderness and passion. When we lead with our Core Gifts, something almost miraculous happens: we begin to attract people who love us for who we really are, we become more self-assured and emotionally available, and we lose our taste for relationships that chip away at our self-esteem.  Full of exercises, practical tools and inspiring stories, Deeper Dating guides readers of all ages on a life-changing journey to find the love–and personal fulfillment–they long for.





Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt Deeper Datingis counter-intuitive, and it is among the best manuals for succeeding in finding and keeping love we have seen. According to its author, the core attractor for the person best suited for a great love is the part of you with which you may be most uncomfortable: your vulnerability and authenticity. He explicitly votes against a presentational self attempting to make an impression. Not only does he encourage you to leave your defenses at home, he shows you with many illustrations and exercises just how to prepare for the ultimate relationship with someone who is just right for you.”

Chip_7191_re_small Deeper Dating was a revelation for me. This enlightening book helped me to see the way we go about dating deeply influences the kind of relationship that will emerge. If you desire a soulmate, lead with your soul. So many of us come from that place of looking for that person who ‘completes’ us, but Ken helped me to see that I desire a partner who ‘reflects’ the best in me. Show your core gifts of vulnerability and authenticity and you’ll find a partner who does the same.”
