    Marry Him

    Throughout the show, Jessica struggled to choose between two guys—Barnett and Mark. Barnett, the playboy, appeared to be the kind of guy that Jessica’s normally gone after, whereas Mark, the sweetheart, was willing to give Jessica a long-lasting, sustainable relationship. However, Mark was not Jessica’s typical type—he was younger, shorter, too emotionally available. Lori’s book in no way says we should settle for less but offers an eye-opening perspective on how having a checklist hinders us from meeting our potential mates. She discusses what’s important by distinguishing between wants and needs. A great read for anyone wondering why they can’t find the one.

    The Psychology of Romantic Love

    Mark knew he found the one as soon as he heard Jessica’s voice. They connected over their shared hometowns, familial love, and religion. However, Jessica chose Barnett over Mark—then came back to Mark once Barnett rejected her. There were a lot of mixed signals coming from Jessica that Mark wholeheartedly wanted to work through. While we applaud Mark on wanting to try to make it work with Jessica… he was getting shortchanged. The Psychology of Romantic Love explores what love is, how it grows, how it dies, and how we can make it last. Perfect for those trying to better understand what love could look like.
