Still, the wise principles contained therein might benefit those wrapping their head around a counter-cultural approach to relationships. I really enjoyed this book. Coming from very broken relationship in the past, this book reminded me about the importance of setting healthy boundaries, the people whom I choose to date, how to deal with conflicts and how important your support system is. I think it gave me a lot of perspective and thought about moulding myself to be a better person not just in relationships but also life in general.
