Why you need to communicate responsibly

In my younger days, I used to think that if a man I was dating really liked me, he’d be able to anticipate my needs, escalate the relationship at the appropriate time and generally read my mind without any effort on my part. When none of these things happened, I assumed he didn’t really care about me and our relationship was doomed. This may sound silly, but I’m not the only woman to have behaved this way. I’ve seen it happen over and over again with my clients. Becoming clear about what your needs are in a relationship and communicating them directly is an essential skill. You can learn how and doing so will revolutionize your love life. First, discover what your needs are and own up to them unflinchingly. If you need it, you need it. Don’t apologize. It’s OK to have needs. Ask your man for what you […]

The Reason You’re Single

Could you be wrong about the reason you’re single? If you’ve been on your own for a long time, you probably have a lot of ideas about why you’re single. I know I did!

Kind of like a dating science experiment if you will. Look at other women around you. Not everyone who is happily paired up is a size 2 or a supermodel. Many happily married women are just as brilliant and successful as you are. Take some time to study what other women who are in love and […]

Do you know what a total GAME CHANGER is when you’re looking for the right guy? It’s sharing the same interests! I’m not referring to superficial things like cheering for the same team or loving the same foods. I’m talking big picture things, like sharing a desire for marriage, children, or other major lifestyle choices. If you know what you want in life, please have the courage to stand for yourself by sharing this information with the men you date early on. The last thing you want to do is to fall for a man and then try to convince him that he should want what you do. Waste. Of. Time. When you find a man who wants the same things you do, it makes your relationship so much easier. And easy is much more fun. Watch this video to learn more: Ready to stop leaving your love life to […]
