11 Things A Man Can Do To Make A Woman Happy

make a woman happyWouldn’t it be great if we all came with an operating manual? It would make dating and relationships so much less confusing. I have my private clients write their own personal operating manual. It consists of her relationship plan – her must-haves, her must-not-haves, her communication style, and what makes her happy in life. She doesn’t literally hand that book out to the men she dates. That would be weird. It’s just for her, to give her clarity on her relationship standards and how she wants to be treated in relationships. It helps her identify the right men and walk away from the wrong ones.

There are some recurring themes in these operating manuals. Turns out that most women want similar things from the men in their lives. Married or single, I thought men might benefit from knowing what most women want in relationships. (Note: I said MOST because I realize we’re all unique, and some will disagree with a few of these points.) I once watched a YouTube video of a teenage girl telling men what women want, which inspired me to write this post for more mature men. If you agree with these tips, please pass them on to any men you know. Wouldn’t it be fabulous if men and women understood how to make each other happier?

How Men View Dating and Sex

how men view sex and datingDear Sandy,

I am so confused about the “right” way to date. When I am honest and straightforward about presenting my true self on a first date, I often don’t get asked out a second time. It seems like maybe I’m not mysterious or flirtatious enough. I’ve been called down-to-earth. So, when I try to be coy, flirty, and don’t say too much, guys seem to like me better. They seem to be into the chase, the mystery of me. After they’ve made their conquest, they lose interest. It feels like either way you look at it, I lose. I am looking to find a wonderful man, and I don’t think my standards are unreasonable. Why can’t I find Mr. Right? Why does it have to be so hard? Men don’t seem like they’re from Mars. They seem like they’re from an alternate universe!

Help me understand men and dating please!

9 Signs of Infidelity in a Relationship

signs of infidelityThis article has been submitted by the team at Fine and Associates who are family lawyers in Toronto.

When you’re in a close relationship with someone and there are obvious signs that something is amiss, you need to look into it. Is there something different about your partner and you just can’t put your finger on it? They might not be keeping their regular schedule, may offer vague explanations of their activities, may be making changes to their appearance or are frequently spending late nights at the office. All this and more can lead to the suspicion of infidelity. It’s important to recognize these signs and to follow-up with your partner about their behavior. By identifying the signs of infidelity in the relationship, you can then begin an open and honest discussion on whether your partner is cheating and how the situation can be resolved.

Would You Pay $5,000 to Date Someone Who Looks Like Your Ex?

date someone who looks like your exAccording to an article in Time.com, Beginning in June of 2016, for a mere $5,000, you can date someone who looks like your ex. You know that guy who broke your heart, the one you’re trying to forget? You can date someone who reminds you of him. Every day for the rest of your life, you can wake up to the face that reminds you of the man who cheated on you, the one who said he just wasn’t into you. Sounds like a dream, huh? Apparently, one of the top online dating sites thinks so. This is a special concierge service offered by Match.com and a matchmaking company called Three Day Rule. Talia Goldstein, founder of Three Day Rule, created a facial recognition dating service for Match. The premise is that we are usually attracted to the same “type” over and over again, so why not plug that type into a computer and spit out all men who look like your ex? Instant chemistry, right? I beg to differ…

How to Recognize a Player So You Don’t Get Played

recognize a playerOne of my favorite Maya Angelou quotes is “When someone shows you who they are believe them the first time.” The best time to recognize a man’s true character is when you first meet. On a first date, you’re both hopefully on your best behavior, but your true character leaks out. Pay close attention to his actions and words. Do they line up? One of the advantages to dating after 50 is that I no longer go into a relationship with my eyes shut to the true nature of a man. No more wishful thinking or projecting what I hope lies beneath the surface. I’ve learned to accept the man I date for who he is today, not who he might become if only… But sometimes, even I can get fooled. But not for long.
