Interview With Author Paul A. Wagner, Ph.D.


1.      What motivated you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and turning it into this book?

 I dated a number of beauty queens, doctors, lawyers and professionally accomplished women in general. All were nice. I was a lucky guy when it came to dating. But I had to be more than lucky if I was to find love. Women too were finding power, wealth, athletic ability and looks do not add up to the right mate for you. So, what does and where can you find the right men or women, (And stay offline. It’s just another bar or nightclub without evident alcohol present!)  

2. What is it about and who is it for? 

People serious about finding a person of class to couple with.  

3. What takeaways might the reader will be left with after reading it?

Where to hangout and where to avoid. What to talk about and what not. “3-date rule” “3 month rule” Don’t become morally entangled with the wrong person.  

4. How did you decide on your book’s title and cover design?

Following a book on Trauma of divorce made the tile easy to imagine – especially given my own subsequent dating experiences.  

5. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers?

Listen, think and listen some more. Writing is only 29% writing. It is in the end 80% editing.  

6. What trends in the book world do you see -- and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?

Nothing heavy but we are overloaded with venomous emotions expressed in so much that is written today. Do not be sophomoric but do not be overly heavy-handed either.  

7. What challenges did you overcome to write this book?

Impatience. It was six years in the writing during a tremendously exciting professional life and much dating.  

8. How would you describe your writing style?

Fun – but never silly or puerile.   

9. If people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours?

Because they will learn how to date better, how to find a better partner and how to be the best possible partner.  

About The Author:

I taught a course for six years on Philosophy of Sex and Love. In addition, I interviewed and surveyed more than 1200 singles for this book between the ages of 25 and 55. I let women tell me what they wanted in a man and I let men tell me what they were looking for in a woman. I explain what counts as a good date and where to meet your type of perfect romantic interest. A chapter toward the end explains serious sustainable love. Another chapter addresses the prospects for lasting marriage and there are appendices guaranteed to help every couple become more intimate emotionally. There are three types of intimacy and emotional intimacy is the most important. Intellectual is second and physical comes in third.
