- (1888PressRelease) April 05, 2011 - What causes relationships to fail? Well, according to the new book by Alan Stransman entitled "So, Why Have You Never Been Married?: A Memoir of Love, Loss and Lunacy", the most common cause of the demise of his romantic relationships has been unrealistic expectations. "If there really were such a thing as love," says Stransman, "it would mean accepting people for who and what they really are, and the truth of that only reveals itself over time. Logically, if people were to accept each other for their real selves, not the fictions that they create based upon their false expectations, then relationships would never end, because the one thing that most people are very good at is being who they really are. But once that is revealed, reality collides with unreal expectations, and disaster ensues."
As he did in his first book, "Don't Let Your Dream Business Turn Into a Nightmare", which chronicled his disastrous experience in launching one of the first day spas for men in the world, Stransman uses his own real-life adventures and misadventures in the world of dating and relationships as material, crafting them into a narrative which is both poignant and comic. "Not to be dismissive of the great figures in literature, many of whom had a profound effect upon my sensibility and attitudes towards love, sex and relationships, but, on balance, writing fiction is for sissies. It takes a real man to expose himself to scrutiny and potential ridicule in a work of literary non-fiction, as I have done, published under my real name, no less. On a serious note, I would argue that by writing about my own experiences with honesty and clarity, I have written about everyone else's experiences, too. Who hasn't experienced the love, loss and lunacy of relationships? The aim of my writing is to amuse and inform my readers by engaging them in a compelling story, not by presenting research data, as I think people learn more readily from hearing stories."
