How many of us never meet the person with whom we could be happy? How many of us limit our romantic choice to the people who happen to wash up on our shore? In "Why Mr Right Can't Find You," J.M. Kearns, Ph. D., shows that finding true love can be a proactive adventure. In chapters like How Men See Women, The Underrated Chance Encounter, and The Truth About Bars, J.M. Kearns lays bare the surprising vulnerabilities of the single male, and the power they confer on women. Men, he explains, are not shallow, not the enemy, and not aliens from Mars. In fact, the good man who is searching for you is your greatest ally, and Kearns shows you exactly how to take advantage of that fact. In the process he overturns the classic dating myths - that destiny chose the "one and only" man for you, that baggage is bad, that all men prefer the same body type - and solves the fascinating riddle of compatibility, with a hilarious and practical guide to the factors that make two people click, illustrated with real-life vignettes straight from the dating trenches. Finally, in a full online dating section, Kearns (who met his partner online) gives clear, simple advice on sites, photo sets, matchmaking, body issues, and that crucial first meeting.


"If you've been on the lookout for ages but still haven't found The One, this is for'll be in the arms of your true love in no time!"
--"OK! Magazine"

"A literary MRI of the male brain."
--Georgie Banks, "CBC News Viewpoint."

"Kearns insists it's really not difficult to direct the right man to you, whether it's online, someone you already know, or a total stranger. So read this, sit back and wait for the offers to pour in... Kearns says we should break the mentality of 'acceptable' places and realize 'any time is a good time to meet Mr. Right.' And sadly, men can't read our minds to establish our interest, so direct him to you."
