Men and Relationships

How to recognize how much of a romantic candidate the men in your life are...

 Friendship and Personal Growth

Discard the enemies, bullies and "frienemies" from your life...

 Career and Children

They definitely live on land, they're pervasive in society, and they don't know any other way of life than eating you alive...

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.

Testing a Man for "Relationship Fitness"

One of the most desirable skills women tend to seek at WomensHappiness.com is that ability to not just “screen” men for the right type for you, but to literally “read” their intentions through their behavior. Not only that. You can practically “predict the future” with a man – good or bad. Doesn’t that sound like an obnoxious claim? It’s one of the things that most excites me about these systems for analyzing romance and getting great at the strategies and tactics we teach. It’s true.

Decades of Men

We often lump men together as all being cut from the same cloth, and while to a certain extend it is possible to count on masculine instincts to be uniform across demographic boundaries - the desire for rank, a career focus, appreciation of the feminine form, territoriality and even aggression - there are some fascinating subtleties to the drives and ambitions of men as they go about their psychological development through the decades.

If there's anything that's true about recent films, it's that they are coming closer and closer to explaining the real instincts that are so different between men and women. Maybe it's only those by the director of Wedding Crashers and the writers of The Hangover. Either way, the just-released movie, The Change-up sends a single man and married man into the other's role, with disastrous, but truly enlightening consequences no matter which type of man you may have in your own life.

Dealing with Enemies, "Frenemies" and Bullies

Have you ever been confused about whether to call a person a friend or an enemy, a bully, or something in between, a "frienemy?" I am sure you have been "crossed" in your time - betrayed, let down, cheated, used, disrespected, or at least turned off in your friendships or dating.

What can we learn from celebrity relationships, specifically Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore?  I think we can learn a thing or two from married movie stars, especially when they break up. Their profession requires them to display their personalities to the public, and we get to watch a relationship unfold in all of its glorious, flawed humanity.  Some Hollywood actors try very hard to keep their relationships private, but not Demi and Ashton.

I love amateurs. I love being an amateur at ninety-eight of the top one-hundred or so most enjoyable things in life. I wonder where all the amateurs of the world have gone. Lately, I miss the amateurs. They've been replaced by experts, gurus and coaches. I had this sudden, uneasy realization the other day, which felt a bit like a bad dream. It was like waking up in the zombie film, 28 Days Later.
