If hindsight is 20/20 vision, dating radar is x-ray vision.

Why do so many of us commit to the wrong person? Most believe that attraction and compatibility are the keys to relationship success when, in reality, these are red flags in 15-20% of the population. When it comes to love, the brain is irrational and shortsighted. We make decisions based on incomplete information, biased understanding, and strong emotion.

Love truly is blind. That's why you need dating radar-it gives you a way to detect hazards you might otherwise miss by recognizing:

1. Warning signs of certain personalities that can spell love relationship danger

2. Ways that they can jam your radar (deceive you)

3. Where your own blind spots might be

Attorney, mediator, and social worker Bill Eddy and relationship expert Megan Hunter use their expertise in high-conflict personalities, complicated relationships, and divorce to equip us to see through the blinding spark of new love and spot potential toxic relationships before it's too late.
