Nationally syndicated advice columnist Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in therapy and research.

My guest tonight is psychologist Judith Sills, Ph.D.

I don't like a lot of self-help books because I typically find them very much about the self of the writer and not all that helpful. (They also tend to be filled with annoyingly cutesy writing.) An exception is a book by Sills, "A Fine Romance: The Passage of Courtship from Meeting to Marriage." http://amzn.to/MwfANM

In it, Sills busts a lot of the myths of how relationships work (like the myth that there's one right person for everyone), and has a fantastic chapter on managing ambivalence -- your own or that of a person you care about. Tonight show will lay out when to push and when to hold back in the process of developing a relationship, how to negotiate your differences and find a decent way to fight about them, negotiating commitment, and much more.
