The Love Chameleon – Keeping Your Identity in a Relationship

What makes you YOU? The chances are, you could tell me at least a half-dozen things that define you.

In Praise of the Selfish Dater

From the time we’re little children we are told to share. We’re told to be thoughtful, and to put others ahead of ourselves. “Don’t be selfish!” is a refrain heard in homes up and down every street in America. When it comes to little children and toys the lesson is necessary. When it comes to […]

The eBay of Dating: What Do You Think of Bidding on Dates?

No doubt you’ve heard of the site Whatsyourprice.com. It is the kind of site that eventually had to be created. It creates a market for dates, with one side posting bids to date the other. The other side can accept those bids and a date is born. This idea is so simple and so off-putting […]

Is Your Critical Father Still Affecting Your Love Life

Two times in two days I heard two women say something astounding about their husbands. At least it was astounding to me. The stories were so similar that I only need to share one for you to understand the nature of the dilemma. One woman, who is quite beautiful, said that her husband is never […]

A Swedish university has conducted a study and determined that couples where one partner has over a 45 minute commute daily are 40% more likely to divorce.

Which Song Best Describes Your Love Life?

I’ve been thinking a lot about music and dating recently. A good buddy just broke up and he cites music as one of the key issues. “Man, she was into opera and it made me crazy.” It wasn’t just that he didn’t like opera, it’s that she wanted to share opera with him. It was […]

Have you ever dated someone with “Text Fever”?

You know the type. They haven’t called anyone on the phone since 2007. Email is too demanding for them – all that space. They like to communicate in 100 character mini-statements like, “Hey, u bizy 2nite?” or “up 4 drinks l8tr?” or my favorite, “Cnt stp tnkin bout u.” Because nothing says, I can’t stop […]
