Background information on Searching for Courtship, the goal to improve women's romantic lives:

    Winnifred B. Cutler, Ph.D. founded the Athena Institute in 1986 with the mission of improving health care and quality of life for women. From her research as a reproductive biologist and her own experience as a single woman pursuing courtship and marriage, she wrote her book and subsequently developed workshops. Her message and biological perspective on relationships provide women with a clear road map that will lead them down the path to courtship, joyously and successfully.

    In her material, Dr. Cutler explains that the search for courtship is a definite, positive, process. Courtship is not a random activity that just happens. The Searching for Courtship curriculum is for women who have decided they are ready for courtship, who want to learn new ways of conducting themselves, who are willing to return to the path after making mistakes, and who see marriage as a worthy goal.

    Dr. Cutler developed the Code of Courtship as a plan of action to follow once a woman has decided she is ready for courtship and commitment. Below are several of the principles that will guide you to the goal of courtship:

    -- Strengthen you capacity for self control by taking command of your social calendar

    - Learn the basic hormonal and sexual facts that affect your health and happiness.

    -- Understand the importance of a positive first impression, and that first impressions can also be misleading.
