 *This post MAY contain affiliate links. (full disclosure)

 Love and relationship are probably the most complicated topics in the world. Everyone has his or her own opinions, success stories or horrible experiences to tell.

It is true that we will grow every time in a relationship. But making mistakes and breaking up with the ones we love are just too painful to go through again.

And worse, you may not realize what you’ve done wrong in the past, so you are very likely to kill another relationship because of that.

Listed below are the love and relationship books that resonate with us the most, and they may be helpful to you as well. 

These thought-provoking reads for women may change how you feel about intimate relationship.

1. He’s Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt

We are not putting this one first to discourage you.

For pretty girls like you, the first step to finding true love is to stop wasting your time for the wrong one. This book is what your head’s been telling you all along, but you’re just refusing to believe it.

It’s nice to keep one in your room as a reminder that your time is too valuable to be wasted.

2. Just Your Type by Paul D. Tieger

This book is the latest one that we added to the list. We feel obliged to include this because it is not only about love and relationship but also about self-exploratory.

Basing his theory on the Myers-Briggs personality types, Paul Tieger goes deep in explaining how to create perfect harmony in intimate relationships. 

This is a book that helps to deal with differences between you and your partner and to keep love alive and strong

It breaks down the compatibility of types to sex, shared values, security, mutual support, fidelity and more. You will have a better clue about how to love your spouse the way he/she wants and create a healthy relationship.

3. The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

This book aims to solve one problem and one problem only: how to love your better half the way he/she wants

Finding the one you love who loves you back is difficult and probably happens only once in a lifetime. And the risk of making dumb mistakes is just too high, especially when you think you have done every possible right thing to keep the relationship alive.

By reading this book, you will have a better understanding why sometimes your spouse seems impossible to please and how easy it can be to turn things around. Recommended not only for married couples but also for all who are taking their relationship seriously or seeking real love.

4. Why Men Love Bitches by Sherry Argov

Don’t get fooled by the title as we did.

It is not a book spreading hate on all the Regina Georges, and it’s not a guide to teach you how to be a bitch.

The “bitches” described in this book are women that know clearly what they want in life.

They are independent and never wait for a man to give them what they want. 

By reading this book, you will find out how to be true to yourself and get guys to chase you rather than the other way around.

5. Date Like A Man by Jodie Gould

This book is more targeted at the dating game. Yep, you’re right, dating is a game, but man and woman play it differently.

Have you ever wondered why didn’t he seem to be bothered by your disappearance or why didn’t he ask you out after the fantastic first night?”. 

If so, girl, you are in the right place. Men and women are programmed to think and act differently. 

By reading this book, you will have a better clue to men’s dating attitude and how you can beat them in their own game.
