Healthy men and women deserve healthy relationships with other men and women who can offer solid emotional support, understanding, a spiritual connection, and love that can withstand outside pressures.

Finding that kind of relationship is fraught with obstacles–people who are poison to themselves and toxic to others. How can you find a lasting relationship while also avoiding toxic people?

Finding the Right Relationships: How to Avoid Toxic Partners is the in-depth, practical guide book to finding and growing meaningful, life-long connections with people who share your philosophy on life, your goals, and your desire for a healthy relationship.

All people have their own personal definition of the meaning of happiness. Happiness is based on their individual perception of what they believe makes them feel good. For example, a ballroom dancer, a drug user, and an actor will most likely define happiness differently. Some of us believe we can find happiness in healthy relationships. We spend a lot of time and effort searching for the right partner, someone who has also developed their own expectations and standards in their search for a partner. These expectations develop from our cultural values and personal beliefs on what we think we should seek in a companion. We are bombarded with TV shows, magazine articles, movies, celebrities, Hollywood, and books showing us the psychology of relationships and how to select the right partner. Meanwhile, the latest statistics show that every other marriage ends in divorce.

My point is, when a partner does not meet our expectations, we may feel disappointment and discouragement. For some of us, when we have a series of consistent relationship disappointments, we reach a point of “it is enough.” In the end, we realize there is no right partner, but a long line of disappointments, compromises, and settling for less.

In his book, Finding the Right Relationship: How to Avoid Toxic Partners, Dr. James Farmer gives the readers what they have been waiting for, a psychotherapist who is currently in the world of dating.
