Description

In this field guide to twenty-first century dating, Dalma Heyn gives women the tools they need to find the partners they want
Why are so many strong, vibrant women going out with men who sabotage their strength and vibrancy? In her third book, bestselling author and psychotherapist Dalma Heyn provides the roadmap to lovers she calls “drama kings,” men who, still stuck in the man-centric culture of the twentieth century, are emotionally unavailable to these twenty-first century women. Drawing on first-person interviews and case stories of real relationships, Heyn helps women identify the men likely to derail relationships, confront their own expectations about love and relationships, and negotiate the minefields of today’s dating world—so that they never again have to choose between having love and staying strong. This ebook features a new introduction by Dalma Heyn and an illustrated biography including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.  “Strong women, beware. You are more susceptible than most to the advances of the so-called ‘drama kings’—men for whom relationships always devolve into melodrama and rob the strength of the women involved. . . . [Heyn] presents a compelling portrait of the five types of drama kings—toxic personalities all.” —San Francisco Chronicle “Ms. Heyn has a keen nose for social change. . . . She has detected a plague of drama kings and records their pernicious attributes so that wary women can spot them in time and bar the door.” —The New York Times  Dalma Heyn, who earned her master’s degree in social work at New York University, has been writing about love, marriage and relationships for twenty-five years. She is the bestselling author of The Erotic Silence of the American Wife, Marriage Shock, and Drama Kings, as well as the host of the regionally broadcast television program The Love Goddess Show. She is the former editor in chief of Health magazine, executive editor of McCall’s, and columnist for Mademoiselle and New Woman. She has appeared as a social commentator and guest author on Oprah, Good Morning America, Today, and The View, among others.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 22, 2005 – Based on interviews with 100 middle-class women, Heyn (The Erotic Silence of the American Wife) explores yet another classification of dysfunctional males. Drama Kings are defined as men who have remained "tuck in a my-needs-come-first understanding of relationships." According to the author, women are getting stronger while Drama Kings, afraid of attachment and commitment, create scenes that sabotage intimacy. Heyn presents four categories of these losers, but their descriptions sound like old complaints about men forced into new packaging. The Visitor is a loner who believes "the way to a woman's heart is through her genitals." The Proprietor is a jealous bully who demands constant attention. In contrast, the Easy-going Guy makes up fake girlfriends in order to avoid moving forward in a relationship. The Hit and Run Lover pretends to want closeness, but leaves without warning if there is the smallest problem. Heyn's upbeat message is that, although women can be tricked by Drama Kings, they often leave them, emerging stronger from the encounter and ready for an independent life. Self-help devotees may be engaged by the author's anecdotal style, but her stance that she is writing a feminist text to support strong women rather than a simple relationship guide is not fully convincing .
