Hot Relationships: How to Have One was the natural follow-up to Hot Sex: How to Do it. Aimed at providing practical and realistic advice on all dating and relationship dilemma's, it's a must-have manual for singles, couples, men and women. The following questions and answers were taken from a recent interview about the book.
Isn't this a bit of a strange order to write the books in? Sex first, then the relationship?
Quite frankly, when I'd just finished writing Hot Relationships, I was so exhausted, I felt like telling everyone to skip the relationship part and just stick with the sex! Writing Hot Sex was so much easier because you're talking a lot about body parts. It's much harder to write a book about relationships that is useful to everyone because you have to take into account their level of attractiveness, how confident they are, where they live, past experiences, whether they've just met the person or been with them forever - and somehow come up with advice that applies to everyone. It wasn't easy - and this also explains why the book is much larger than the first one! But it follows the same formula: solutions to problems most couples struggle with today.
Isn't love enough?
No. Love alone isn't enough because relationships aren't easy. You need to be able to express your thoughts, needs and desires to each other. To be able to argue without it ending with the door slamming. To make each other feel understood, supported and respected. To do all this, you need relationship skills and that's what the book aims to teach you.
What's different about your book compared to other self-help books?
There's two points of difference. First up: it's funny. And most self-help books aren't, which means it's not a chore to read. Secondly, it's practical. It's got step-by-step, here's-how-you-solve-it solutions. It doesn't just talk about the theories behind why you're having problems, it takes you through an action plan. It's not just about understanding the problem but how to fix it, right NOW! And like Hot Sex, it's all been real-life road-tested. I got as many couples as possible to try it all out. Like, "You two are always arguing about the housework. Try this and see it works".
Who's the book aimed at?
Everyone. It doesn't matter if you're madly in love or driven mad by it. Or if you're happily single or looking for a partner. Or living together, married with kids or dumped and desperate. Whatever the state of your love life, it's hopefully got the answers to all your dating and relationship dilemmas.
I've included advice on everything from flirting and flings to monogamy and marriage. There's hot tips on getting over an ex, where to meet a partner, how to spot the losers and how to breeze through that first date, as well as hints on fixing the fights, surviving jealousy and infidelity and breaking bad love habits. I'd like to think it's two books in one: a dating/flirting/finding a relationship guide for singles and a survival/rescue guide for committed couples.
