About this project

Renowned relationship expert Dr. Antonio Borrello teams up with his ex-wife to write book uncovering the ultimate relationship and dating hacks for the new digital world.

Psychologist and relationship therapist Dr. Antonio Borrello and his ex-wife, psychologist Dr. Theresa Pavone, have officially codified their exhilarating and sometimes-frustrating experiences in the new digital world of dating in a new book, Relationships 2.0.

After three years of navigating the tumultuous “new world” of online dating, Antonio and Theresa did what any divorced couple would do – they joined forces to share the ultimate dating hacks they had learned. This unlikely duo has written a revolutionary new book, Relationships 2.0.

Married in the Vatican and divorced in Detroit, the couple spent three long years re-learning the dating game, a game that has radically changed. Exhilarating and often frustrating, dating is not what it once was just 10 years ago. Tinder, mobile dating apps, online dating – all of these have changed the dating scene irrevocably.

“We grappled with some primitive, powerful feelings as we shared stories and compared notes. Somewhere in there, we realized we’d uncovered unique dating perspectives that could save others from so much frustration and hurt,” explains Dr. Borrello. “Combining our psychological background, our unique perspective as a divorced coupe and the new rules of online and mobile engagement, we were able to discover dating hacks that can help anyone searching for love today.”

Bringing a unique relationships perspective never shared before, Relationships 2.0 will enable anyone to understand difficult dating or relationship situations and the changes necessary to improve their relationships.

It helps you understand why those failed relationships failed, teaches you how you can avoid repeating mistakes of the past, and guides you through handling common dating challenges. It’s a tool that will help you prepare for the happy, healthy relationship of your dreams.

This book is for those of us who have at some point declared that dating sucks. It’s for those of us who just can’t seem to find The One. And, most especially, this book is for those who have struggled but still believe in second chances—the 2.0.


First Update and Answer to the question,

"Wasn't it weird to write a dating and relationship book with your ex-wife?"

Click on the Play button to Listen.

As a psychologist and relationship therapist, Dr. Antonio Borrello had spent more than ten years working with thousands of people to improve and heal their most important relationships. His scientific background and passion for helping people led Antonio to become a recognized dating and relationship expert. It even inspired him to begin writing his first book ... Until he got divorced. Suddenly, Antonio was forced to reevaluate every aspect of his personal life and professional practice. After all, who ever heard of a divorced marriage therapist?

Like most divorcing couples with children, Antonio and his ex-wife Dr. Theresa Pavone struggled through a difficult adjustment period. Married or not, they were both determined to redefine their relationship and successfully uncouple. Through patience, understanding, hard work, and a little bit of luck, Antonio and Theresa were able to develop a new co-parenting friendship that is mutually rewarding and beneficial to their children.

Eventually, they also began to meet new people and rediscover the whole dating process, this time with the help of modern technology— texting, getting asked out on Facebook, setting up online dating accounts—all the excitement and craziness the digital age can possibly offer. It has certainly been a wild ride so far, and now, three years later, Antonio and Theresa have come together to co-author the new book Relationships 2.0, revealing everything they have discovered since they ventured back into the exhilarating and occasionally frustrating world of single-hood, and of course, imparting some of their wisdom from their many years in the field of psychology.

If you thought it was hard trying to write an authoritative book on relationships after going through a divorce, try and imagine the "Mission: Impossible" nature of writing this book with a co-author who also happens to be the ex-wife in question! I'd be lying if I said didn't find myself grappling with some primitive, powerful feelings as she told me about her recent dating experiences as we compared notes on our dating experiences to write this book. A lot of authors will tell you they wrote their book from the heart and where Relationships 2.0 is concerned, truer words were never spoken.

Relationships 2.0 is a book I wish I would have had a long time ago. It’s filled with very easy to understand explanations of the most relevant relationship theories and research collected over the past decades.

With Relationships 2.0, anyone will be able to understand difficult dating or relationship situations and the changes that are necessary to improve their relationships.

As Featured on

Kickstarter is a funding platform dedicated to making creative projects possible with direct support. When you back our project, you’re saying that you want this book to be made. We have chosen Kickstarter because it is designed to make a pledge as convenient as possible.

We have already financed the writing and editing of Relationships 2.0 ourselves, but we can’t publish and distribute it on our own. We are raising the funds needed to print a high quality book and get it the exposure it deserves.

Please help us by making a financial contribution and getting a pre-release copy of the book. Your help will really make a difference.

We know Relationships 2.0 can be a catalyst to change someone’s life and want it to be available to anyone who can benefit from its message, regardless of their financial situation. That’s why we’ve decided to offer a PDF copy of the book for FREE!

If you share this Kickstarter on any social media using the #Iam2point0 hashtag, we will send you the full PDF of Relationships 2.0 for you to download, print, and read.

Simply send us an email at GetRelationships2.0@gmail.com with a screenshot or a link to where you shared our campaign. When the campaign is complete, we will send your PDF copy for you to use in upgrading your Relationships to 2.0

Writing, editing, designing, and publishing a high quality book can be very expensive. That’s before including the costs associated with creating a professional website and effectively promoting and marketing the book.

Our book has been written and professionally edited. And, hundreds of our friends on Instagram and Twitter selected the winning cover artwork and design from the dozens of artist submission.  Now,  we are ready to have the book typeset, printed, and distributed. And that’s where you can help.

Printing, marketing and book promotion can cost tens of thousands of Dollars and fall far short of the massive awareness that a social media movement can create. 

We are asking you to help us fund the printing of Relationships 2.0.  Your pledges will make printing a high quality book possible.  And, by sharing our campaign with your friends on social media, our important message will be get the awareness that it deserves.  Please take a moment to scroll up and click on the green "Back this Project Button" and make a pledge today. 

The monies pledged towards this Kickstarter campaign will be used to pay for final book design, printing, shipping, and website development. Below, we have outlined the costs associated with an initial run of 500 books. Please review our budget and feel free to contact us if we can answer any questions.

Risks and challenges

The book has been written and professionally edited. At this point, the manuscript needs to be typeset for printing and converted to the various e-book formats for distribution. We are confident that the book will be printed-- nevertheless, there are a few risks and challenges to note.

1. We could experience possible delays from the printer — We are using a highly recommended professional printer, so I’m very confident that they will deliver as promised.

2. Technical glitches — The book will be converted from the print original to various e-book formats through a very reputable digital services company that specializes in e-book conversion. However, there is always the possibility of technical glitches that delay things.

3. This is a low-risk high-reward project to support that will allow you to give back while also getting great rewards in exchange!
