We are all on a journey. From birth to death. Either the journey has great meaning or it doesn’t. But regardless, you want to have a good ride and for most of us that means a satisfying, long-term, romantic relationship.

There are, conservatively, a gazillion self-help and relationship books out there. I haven’t read them all, but enough to knew a good one when I read it. Tracy McMillan has written a great one. In fact, she has written two. I’m posting the same review for both books since they are both very related, yet complementary. “I Love You and I’m Leaving You Anyway” is more personal and biographical, while “Why You’re Not Married Yet” is more instructional and guide oriented. Both books work together to present an amazingly resilient and wise woman, who has much to teach us. I read both in just a few days.

She writes about both men and women, but her writing is more directed to women. As a man, I’d say she has a lot of wisdom to pass on for both. This is not a book on how to play the game to romantically bond with a man. It is a wise and heartfelt meditation on the issues that can get in the way of attracting and having a relationship with a man who is interested in a long-term commitment to a woman, and ready now. There are a lot of us. But not all of us.

When a woman isn’t radiating the right energy or vibes to attract these men who are looking for a long-term relationship, they’ll attract no one, or the players and the guys into casual relationships. There’s nothing wrong with those approaches, but if a woman is looking for more, she won’t find the right men buzzing around her, showing any interest. McMillan wants to let those women who do want a long-term relationship know some of the best ways to be in the position to attract and relate to the right kind of men for that.

Women have this enormous power and they often fail to use it appropriately or they misuse it. Tracy McMillan honors and celebrates that female power. Men want that and we need that from women. Many of us are looking for that inside of a long-term relationship. But we need women to give us the space to find that in them, and to relate to it in our own way. Women can be strong and powerful, while delivering the experience that will attract and enthrall a man. When this works, it’s magic for both people and McMillan wants to help us find that magic.
McMillan came upon her wisdom the hard way and perhaps the only way – she lived the pain of mistakes and disappointments – starting with a father who was loving and charming, while being often absent due to a colorful and not law-abiding lifestyle. She had failed relationships and marriages, but learned from those experiences. Her son has also taught her much about the male subspecies.

Throughout this all, McMillan has refused to see her mistakes as failures. She never seemed to let bitterness or regret get the best of her. Now the only way I know this is that she has been able to write two books that are as wise and deep as they are. But the real beauty of the two books is that they are as accessible and funny as they are. McMillan has a gift as a writer and as a person who has walked the walk in relationships. She has the bumps and bruises to prove it, but she seems never to have lost her humor, positive outlook and ultimately her love for men in general.

She makes a reference to Jung in the first part of her book, “Why You’re Not Married Yet”. Her books contain a great deal of wisdom and psychological insight, without any axes to grind. As a great lover of Jung and his wisdom, I could see his ideas in the background of her exploration of the female and male psyches. I make this point only to indicate that McMillan touches on some very powerful and deep ideas in her two books. You can completely appreciate these books, whether you are a student of Jung’s approach or not. I wouldn’t want to scare away anyone from these two books – there is too much gold here to be ignored or dismissed.

Tracy McMillan is a woman who can inspire and educate women, as well as men, to get back in the game or stay in the game to find a loving and long-term relationship. A romantic relationship, or really any other relationship, is never designed to complete you. She preaches that we’re all fine just the way we are, but we have to come to terms with that. And then work on our own evolution and growth. Working on our own growth and evolution with a loving partner is one of the most powerful joys on earth. And we stimulate that same process in our partner. Tracy McMillan seems totally committed to herself and to that growth and evolution.

I passionately believe that romantic relationships are perhaps the most powerful crucible for us to experience ourselves, when we look deeply into ourselves. Tracy McMillan has written two invaluable books to help us all in that journey of self-discovery. Even if you just want to have a more fulfilling and fun long-term relationship, there is much here to help you and to guide you. But these two books point to a lot more depth and wisdom than are contained in virtually all self-help books. A great book is satisfying in itself, but also inspires more searching, more exploration and more growth. Tracy McMillan has written two such books. I can hardly wait for another book from her, perhaps directed more toward men to complement these ones. I would immediately download her next book without hesitation.

I knew Tracy as a child in Minneapolis (she seems to have skipped the phase where she lived on my street) and she was very, very funny and wacky as a kid. I knew her dad was incarcerated for dealing heroin but did not know her foster home history. I do remember admiring her and her seemingly exotic heritage (we lived in a very white, middle class neighborhood). She seemed extremely sophisticated.

I was blown away to find out how successful she became; however, of some of the friends that I know who come from rocky/abusive upbringings, the smart ones tend to go very far. They tend to work 5 times as hard as other people, probably out of fear that they will end up in a bad way. She is one of those people.

This book is a quick read, and while it is vividly written, I did have to adapt to its quirky style; people who read blogs a lot will probably find this a familiar style. Sometimes it's very engaging, sometimes it is jarring or feels like it's trying too hard to be funny. Perhaps I read too much of a more traditional style of writing with formal sentence structures, but I'm finding I don't like Millennial-style mannerisms like putting periods. After. Every. Word. That. Is. Annoying.

But lots of people write like that nowadays so perhaps I'm an old fogie who prefers the old-style craftsmanship of say, Willa Cather. It's like the difference between sleek, minimal architecture and ornate Victorian. I recall reading somewhere that an overly-breezy, familiar style is poor style, but everyone writes like that nowadays and people seem to love it, so perhaps my response is the literary equivalent of being a Luddite. That style does read very fast, too; and it can give a sense of immediacy and does reflect the tempo of modern life probably far better than a writing style from 90-100 years ago.

So onto the content: In general, she displays a stunning lack of self-pity that is refreshing for the memoir genre (I'm lookin' at you, Elizabeth Wurtzel) but occasionally I feel she tries to squeeze events into an analytical framework where everything is all related to father issues. I'm also uncomfortable with the implication that anything other than traditional monogamy is pathological; obviously, her third husband Paul never should've attempted a monogamous relationship, and he even tried to tell her that, but she ignored the red flag. If I could add any advice to women involved with men who won't commit, it's this: MOVE ON. Find one who will; don't go into counseling, don't try to shoehorn somebody into a situation they don't want. It won't work.

In this era of the Wedding Industrial Complex, lots of mainstream-culture folks seem to feel that AIDS reversed the sexual revolution and that if you don't do monogamy, you have Commitment Issues Deeply Rooted in Your Childhood and you need counseling. (People who watch Dr Phil and Oprah love this kind of thing.) Sadly, Paul ends up getting shock treatment and tries to change what is essentially his nature; he's a player and he never should get married. Women (or men, gay or straight) should not try to change people like this; either have an open relationship or move on. I think straight people could learn a lot by seeing the same issues cropping up in gay relationships, thus realizing that not everything is about Women who are from Venus and Men Who are From Mars. Lots of people suck at relationships, gay, straight, male, female. Lots of people go through phases. Lots of people are not meant to be together but they have great sex. End of story.

She does however, have a beautiful eye for detail and a refreshing sense of positiveness about moving forward and letting go, and for being grateful for all the things that people have done for her. I think this mindset is something that anyone could benefit from; I have too many friends who hold onto childhood grudges (even petty ones) well into middle age. It is irksome and sad. How nice to see someone advocate for moving beyond perpetual adolescent resentment.
