I love this subject. Everyone has there own opinion of the infamous one night stand. Of course this author that's a man by the way says sex on the first date is a big no and the woman is considered loose and the man isn't considered at all like a man whore. Unfortunately I agree. I do believe most men think of you in a negative way. But I disagree to it's 2014 and sometimes we women don't wan a relationship , sometimes we just want some SATISFACTION.
You’ve seen the average guy with the hot woman and wondered, "Why is she with him?" And you probably envied him and thought, "Now why can’t that be me?!" News flash to all single men out there: You do not have to be the hot, good-looking guy to win over a beautiful woman! As a matchmaker and dating coach, I have interviewed thousands of single women and, believe it or not, women are actually much less superficial when it comes to looks than men are. Now obviously there needs to be some sort of attraction, but women will rarely say a “must have” is hot looks. Women tend to focus more on the qualities a man has to offer. Women have repeatedly told me the top three qualities they are looking for in a man are: 1. Sense of humor. When it comes to sense of humor, don’t worry. You don’t have to be a stand-up comedian, but you do have to READ MORE »
Let’s talk about some pros, cons and motivations of monogamy versus open relationships. Monogamy. Monogamy can provide an excellent foundation for a relationship. Your romantic life can feel stable, you have a companion, and you are able to get to know one person extremely well. Given a healthy relationship, you build trust with your partner and learn how to communicate and tackle challenges together. Also, assuming you both got tested for STIs at the beginning of your relationship and cheating is not taking place, you don’t have to worry about STIs. On the other hand, monogamy is built around assumptions that one person can satisfy 100 percent of your desires, needs and wants out of a relationship, which can feel stifling and overwhelming (and disappointing when it doesn’t work out that way). Sexual excitement fades over time, and you have READ MORE »
Do you think you know everything there is to know about men? Think again! Here are three common misconceptions women make about men while dating. 1. Standards will push him away I don't know why this is, but for some reason women have been convinced they aren't allowed to have standards. Too many women have been led to believe they have to compromise or lower their expectations, standards or values because men have all the leverage and only they have the ability to pick and choose and be super selective. The irony in this is usually that notion comes from other women. If you ask most men, the truth is they have no problem with and are actually attracted to women with standards and who actually take a little pride in who they are and aren't willing to put up with or settle for just anyone. However, the kicker is being able to differentiate and not READ MORE »
I’m the human equivalent of a Trapper Keeper. I have to be in order to coach individuals because they share confidential information with me. Ironically when I’m around the people closest to me or I’m really passionate about a topic, it’s hard to shut me up. I am an open book with my beaux, and for the most part, we should be able to confide in our partner about anything, even our deep, dark secrets. However, there are some things better left unsaid. In relationships, it’s important to maintain a small level of mystery to increase attraction and keep sparks flying. At the same time, it’s important to allow ourselves to be vulnerable and open up about our feelings to one another on a consistent basis. How does one strike a balance? How does one maintain mystery yet remain open to give and receive love? The failure to strike READ MORE »

Hooking up is becoming a trend, not only among college students, but increasingly among 20-somethings who have entered the work world. As many delay marriage, they are trading dating for hookups — casual sexual encounters with no strings attached.
When it comes to dating a woman, conversation rules the nation. This is because most of the value a woman places on a relationship — romantic or otherwise — is based on her ability to exchange thoughts and ideas with that person. While love letters and poems are fantastic and very effective (don’t get me wrong, we love them), nothing will ever take the place of hearing you speak the words we long to hear. If you struggle with finding the right words, don’t worry because you’re not alone. I recognize that most men find difficulty in communicating their feelings, so I’ve made a list for you that promises to reveal that smile you love so much and put a gleam in those eyes you love to gaze into. These, by the way, include words rarely spoken by men, words that may seem humorous and amusing at first. Nevertheless, if you’ll incorporate these words READ MORE »
I see you! You are head over hills and full of nervous energy wondering, “When is the right time to say ‘I love you?'" The truth is there is no magic formula or algorithm, but there are some things you may want to consider before you say that very powerful phrase. 1. Lust is not love. Your knees get weak when you see her and your hormones rage when you touch, but remember that just because someone turns you on, it does not mean you are in love. Loving someone is a big step and you must be ready to love her, even if the butterflies and lustful feelings simmer down. 2. Does this relationship have a future? No need to waste an “I love you” on someone you don’t have a future with. If she has made it obvious that your relationship has no next level, then professing your love won’t change that. Save your love for someone who wants to READ MORE »
In my professional and personal life, great single men looking to meet someone special constantly tell me they held back in approaching a woman they were potentially interested in because she seemed too intimidating. Single women also tell me they are out and about and consider themselves open to love, but they are having trouble meeting men despite being surrounded by them. It is all too common to think you are approachable, while men perceive that you are closed, unavailable or uninterested. Clearly there is some sort of mismatch here if single men are saying they are uncomfortable approaching women who appear too confident or intimidating and single women are saying they wish they were approached more. Confidence is vital for men and women alike. It is so important to be authentic, open and confident in who you are and the energy you put out into the READ MORE »
