Do you feel unlucky in love? Depressed or frustrated with your relationships or dating life? Have you ever thought, “I must be cursed?” Author Jess McCann spent a decade investigating why so many smart, attractive people suffer repeating, negative outcomes in their love lives — whether that means constantly getting ghosted, attracting the same noncommittal partner, or repeatedly fighting with a spouse. What she found was the startling revelation that men and women who struggle to develop or maintain happy relationships all have one thing in common. They’re unknowingly stuck in a habit of self-focused, binge thinking.
