Ross Rosenberg Quotes

These are some “Ross Rosenberg Quotes” for you to share, from his book The Human Magnet Syndrome

Since the dawn of civilization, men and women have been magnetically and irresistibly drawn together, not so much by what they see, feel and think, but more by invisible, unconscious romantic forces. This seductive, alluring and seemingly impossible to avoid love force is the Human Magnet Syndrome. It bonds oppositely-matched partners in a breakup resistant rollercoaster-like relationship. This breakthrough book not only explains why codependents habitually fall prey to harmful and manipulative narcissists, but why they predictably sabotage their dreams for freedom, happiness and self-love.

Rosenberg’s pioneering work on relationships, codependency and narcissism is a necessary road map for receiving healthy love–both from others and ourselves. This book will guide and inspire both the layman and the professional.


Four stages of codependency recovery – Setting boundaries – building new relationships – maintaining Boundaries – strengthening new relationships
Break the patterns – I began to comprehend that deeply entrenched and unconscious forces within me compelled me to repeat my childhood trauma of feeling alone, unimportant and emotionally lost.
The soulmate of the codependent’s dreams will become the narcissists of their nightmares.
Narcissists – Every woman I had fallen in love with ‘was basically the same person with a different face
All of us are compelled to fall in love with a specific personality type that is dichotomously opposite from our own. Like metal magnets, human magnets are attracted to each other when their personalities or ‘magnet roles’ are perfectly matched.
Though a great deal of challenging and difficult personal work, I eventually figured out why I habitually gravitated toward harmful romantic partners.
