“The Grey Dance of Love” by George Araman is a life-saving book for anyone who is in or wishes to be in a romantic relationship. Araman’s inspiration for this book came from a relationship break-up he experienced that truly shook him to his core. Being dumbfounded as to the reason for the break-up, Araman shifted his grief into research to discover everything there is to know about relationships and how to make them work. After reading hundreds of books, thousands of articles, and referencing many experts in the field of relationships, marriage, and sex, he compiled the information for anyone to use. Honestly, there is so much information that it took me longer to get through the book than I thought; if you fully read it all, you will be an expert on men and women.
The book is presented in three parts. In part one, the reader will learn about the type of love partner you are, the biology and chemistry of love, and about the three types of chemistry that are essential to making a relationship last. The reader will learn about the eight different relationship characters to help them determine where they fall in the eyes of their mate. In part two, the reader will discover step-by-step solutions for the main love problems in people’s lives to help you reach the end goal of a passionate relationship. Part three is about resources; websites and references included will allow the reader no excuses when they are in a pinch and need to work on their relationship quickly.
Like I previously mentioned, there is a lot of information in this book, but it’s all helpful and needed! The divorce rate in the United States alone is too high; when people start following Araman’s advice, the proof will be in the number of couples staying together, but more importantly, in love.
At first, I was surprised at the amount of sexual content in the book; the more I thought about it though, it makes sense as our sexual nature is a natural part of our identities and plays a large role in making or breaking a relationship. The differences between men and women are mostly obvious to us, but the similarities may come as a surprise.
People in any stage of a romantic relationship will be able to benefit from “The Grey Dance of Love;” those married forever, a single day, just dating, or even those just wanting someone but maybe don’t know how to go about finding the right person. This book would also be a great resource for therapists to provide information to their struggling marital or relationship clients.
