“You’re a smart person. You really are. Most of the time. So why are you having such trouble making sense of your love life?”
The DiMarco’s (authors of dozens of Hungry Planet books) have done it again! If I had 5 thumbs I would give it “5 thumbs up!” (I mean the title is brilliant- Cupidity: Cupid & Stupidity)
This book is very relevant, very timely, and I like the way they speak to the married and single people, because even though the issues are different, the heart is still the same.
The Book is split into 5 sections
  1. Section 1: Emotional Acts of Cupidity
  2. Section 2: Mental (Gender-Specific) Acts of Cupidity
  3. Section 3: Physical Acts of Cupidity
  4. Section 4: Social Acts of Cupidity
  5. Section 5: Spiritual Acts of Cupidity
While I enjoyed every section of the book, especially since I realized that I had committed just about every act of cupidity, my favorite was probably Section 4: Social Acts of Cupidity. With titles like “Having Friends of the Opposite Sex,” “Giving Too Much Information,” “Making a big deal out of everything,” and “Refusing to Move Forward Emotionally,” it seemed as if the DiMarco’s were writing the book about the love life of (ahem) “a close friend” of mine.
Get it. Read it. You’ll enjoy it (and hopefully learn something as well)…
