A playful and informative exploration of the science behind how to choose a great mate, from acclaimed relationship psychologist Dr. Ty Tashiro

"A new approach to dating." – NPR

There may be no formula for love, but that certainly doesn’t mean there’s no science behind it. In this fascinating analysis, acclaimed relationship psychologist Dr. Ty Tashiro sets out to revolutionize the ways we search for love.

Dr. Tashiro’s research looks at the studies and research data behind romance and relationships. He pinpoints why our decision-making abilities seem to fail when it comes to choosing mates and how we can make smarter choices. Dr. Tashiro has discovered that if you want a lifetime of happiness—not just togetherness—it all comes down to how you choose a partner in the first place. With wit and insight, he explains the science behind finding a soul mate and distills his research into actionable tips, including:

  • Why you get only three wishes when choosing your ideal partner
  • Why most people squander their wishes and end up in unfulfilling relationships
  • How wishing for the three traits that really matter can help you find enduring love

Illustrated using entertaining stories based on real-life situations and backed by scientific findings from fields such as demography, sociology, medical science and psychology, Dr. Tashiro’s book provides an accessible road map to help people everywhere find their happily-ever-afters.
