Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend write some of the best books I’ve read discussing relationship basics, and this book fits right in with the others. Following the basis of their phenomenal Boundaries, Boundaries in Dating makes the concepts more specific to dating relationships. They dive into common issues and make accessible some of their causes. Gaining a better understanding of the underlying desires behind some people’s undesirable behaviors, whether done by yourself or the person you date, makes handling them manageable. The potential boundaries readers can develop a healthier structure and foundation for dating, including direction for future expectations. Overall, the book offers tremendous insight and applicable knowledge.
I highly recommend this book as well as its predecessor Boundaries. I also recommend their book Safe People. I look forward to a future re-read of Boundaries as well as further reading by these authors.
