Women spend a lot of time complaining about men. Even the tone and title of blog posts seem to reflect a general frustration women have with men:

From what I’ve seen on many dating sites for women, men are commitment-phobic players. I know those headlines are written to entice readers, and they wouldn’t be attractive if there wasn’t an element of truth. But, what if there’s another view? Could it be that the more extreme behaviour of some men ruins it for the quality men?

How to Be a Woman of Value When a Man Stands You Up

What do you do when a man stands you up? He seemed amazing, you made a date, and then he didn’t show up. He apologized the next day. Do you forgive him?

I want to share a “woman of value” story with you. It’s about when a man stands you up and what you can do about it so you don’t feel powerless anymore. It’s about standing in your integrity, even when you feel rejected by a man. It’s about something that just happened to me. I think it’s important to learn lessons from every experience we have in dating. So, here’s my teachable moment about how to be a woman of value, even when a man stands you up!
 
I met a guy a few weeks ago. The first date was amazing. We both didn’t want it to end. He walked me to my car like a gentleman. I liked that. And for the first time in a LONG time, I was interested in a second date. He really liked me, too, and asked me out for the following week. All was good. Or so I thought…

find love without using your mobile phone

Remember the days when you could find love without using your mobile phone? Here are 6 creative ways to put down your phone and meet people in real life!

Do you remember a pre-smart phone world? One where you looked ahead rather than down at your screen? These gadgets have taken over our lives in almost every conceivable way.
