The No-No List

How to Spot Mr. Wrong to Find Mr. Right

Venus Rouhani
  • Do you feel burned from dating the same type of person over and over again?
  • Are you tired of endless dating that never seems to go anywhere?
  • Do you always start out with Mr. Right, only to watch him turn into Mr. Wrong?
  • Does each breakup chip away at your self-esteem, causing you to lose hope?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, the problem is not you! It is the way you’ve been taught to search for the right partner—find someone who shares your interests and live happily ever after, right? Wrong.

In The No-No List, psychotherapist Venus Rouhani offers a radical new perspective on the dating game. That person who makes your heart throb, who has your sense of humor, and who shares your love of travel could also have a temper, wandering eyes, or a need for control that—as much as you want to ignore it—will rear its ugly head later in the relationship. Fear no more! The No-No List will equip you with the tools to know which personality traits are deal breakers for you and will help you spot the red flags, even in a brand new relationship.

Whether you’re dating, married, or somewhere in between, Venus’s insights, backed by scientific expertise and a lifetime of personal experience, will help you understand the profound connection between failed relationships and your hidden trigger points. By understanding what you DON’T want, you’ll be on your way to finding the relationship you’ve wanted all along!

Venus Rouhani came into marriage counseling in an unusual way: She began her career in dentistry - both as a practitioner and in academia. During that time, she earned a reputation for her ability to calm patients' fear of dental work. After she suffered a shoulder injury, her work as a dentist came to an end, and a career in therapy was the natural next step. Venus earned a master's degree in counseling and is dual licensed in marriage and family therapy and professional counseling.

In her thriving therapy practice in Austin, Texas, Venus regularly sees struggling couples and individuals frustrated in their search for a lasting and happy romantic partnership. Through working with her clients, she has discovered that identifying clearly what you don't want in a mate is the crucial first step in knowing yourself and finding the right partner. The principles she shares in The No-No List are built around this premise. Venus also attributes much of the success of her marriage of over forty years to these principles.
