What Women Really Want from Men.

What Women Really Want from Men. | SEX | DATING | RELATIONSHIPS |

"Oh, ladies, are we really that complicated? Unfortunately, yes. (Sorry, gentlemen.)


Okay, I’m not actually sorry, but I do feel a ti-ny bit bad, so I’ve decided to help you out.


Here, spelled out—quite literally—is what women want.


We want to be wooed. 


We want romance and we want chivalry. We want you to want to open a door for us because you respect us and, well, like us.


Because we like ourselves, so we demand to be treated well.

Yet, here’s the catch…


We want to have our cake and eat it too."

7 Truths Women Have To Learn The Hard Way

7 Truths Women Have To Learn The Hard Way | SEX | DATING | RELATIONSHIPS |
The author of the unforgettable story collection The News from Spain explains the tough realities we all need to figure out. By Joan Wickersham


1. You Have A Good Girl And A Bad Girl Inside You, And The Good Girl Is Usually The One Who Gets You Into Trouble

The good girl waits to be called on. She takes no for an answer. She doesn’t want to disturb anyone. She carries maturity and good citizenship to the point of paralysis. She holds herself in check, tells herself, "Don’t you dare." The bad girl dares. The bad girl shocks me, and I have a lot to thank her for. She said, "I love you," and she said it first. She said, "I quit this job." She said, "I’ve been working on this book for eight years and it stinks and I’m throwing out the manuscript and starting over." When I look back at the things I regret -- the jobs I wanted and didn’t go after, the editors with whom I never got in touch, the misunderstandings I didn’t try to clear up, the interesting people I never talked to -- I can see how often the good girl was in charge: cautious and correct, and wrong.

Your friends get a good vibe off of him, and never have to give you that speech about how "we just don't want to see you get hurt again."


"He looks for excuses to talk to you, to see you, to be closer to you, and to get to know more about you. And even though you know he intentionally forgot something at your apartment just so he could go back and get it, you play along because you don’t want to ruin the game."

The Four Things That Kill a Relationship Stone Dead

The Four Things That Kill a Relationship Stone Dead | SEX | DATING | RELATIONSHIPS |

A recipe for divorce: criticism, contempt, defensiveness and stonewalling.

For over 40 years the psychologist Professor John Gottman has been analysing relationships, both good and bad.


He's followed couples across decades in many psychological studies to see what kinds of behaviours predict whether they would stay together in the long-term or were soon destined for the divorce courts


.Amongst the factors he identified, four have stood out, time and time again. When Gottman sees a couple's communication overrun with these, the chances are they will divorce in an average of around six years from their marriage.
