If you haven’t seen the movie “How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days”, I’d recommend checking it out. It’s a funny, romantic comedy about a girl who tries to “lose” a guy in 10 days for the purpose of an article she’s writing. Its funny to see what the main character thinks will upset the guys she’s with enough that he’ll break up with her. Turns out, as you can imagine, that he isn’t so easy to … Read More
This is a very sensitive subject. How do you tell the person that you’re with, the person that you love, that they’re gaining weight?

You know those days, when you wake up and just wonder… “Why?”
- “Why do I need to get out of bed today?” - “I don’t like my job, why do I have to spend the time/effort to get up and get dressed, only to go sit in a cubicle for 8 hours?”
- “Why has life dealt me these cards? I’m sick of being where I am.”
These feelings are natural, and aren’t anything to be concerned about. Most of … Read More

You don’t ever WANT to give up. You WANT to keep on trying. You WANT to keep on pushing. You WANT to win/succeed.

As the saying goes, “you need to know when to hold ‘em, and when to fold ‘em.”
In cards, and in life, you need to know … Read More
When I use the word player, I mean a guy who isn’t serious about a long-lasting relationship. He enjoys the thrill of the chase, he enjoys the excitement of budding love, and he works hard to get passed the proverbial front gate to enjoy the physical aspects of love and dating.

When you’re a child, Valentine’s Day isn’t necessarily all that special of a day. You call your grandmother to tell her you love her. You buy superhero themed paper Valentines and write the names of each of your classmates on them. You get to enjoy some of those chalky colored heart candies – yum. It is a fun-themed day, but not much more.
As you get older Valentine’s Day becomes more important. The emotion we… Read More
How often do you hear a girlfriend complain: "I'm done with dating. All guys are jerks and it's just so tough out there. No guy wants to be committed. They are all selfish." Etc. etc. etc.
Well, while I think it's harder for women to find the right match than for men, it's also up to the women to realize that they need to focus more strongly on what they desire.
What does it mean? It means that if you're ready to be in a serious relationship, don't waste time on men w… Read More
