Every woman feels tension between her unique purpose and the need to belong to a group.

Some thoughts about the upcoming Halloween holiday this week could turn us toward the effect of your attire - and costumes in particular, on your attractiveness to men, and what their costumes say about them.

When Femininity Isn't Enough

Sometimes, our instincts are not enough to guide our decisions in this world. This goes for men and women. We need to take into account the community, and also the instincts and perspectives of the opposite gender.
