The One and Only Reason Men Cheat Revealed

As "The Pro Marriage Counselor" I have to tell you: There have been so many pop-articles recently about why men and woman cheat. These articles cite everything from so called “evolutionary psychology” studies to the unqualified opinions of celebrities to the actual North American and European infidelity rates.

The Case for High Standards

The Case for High Standards

One of the issues I come across most often in my coaching practice is settling. That is, dating someone who isn't quite "good enough" but who you date because you don't think you can do any better. I see this most often with men, but women do it too. Here's why it's a bad idea, and why you deserve your perfect match.

Confession: "I Was Almost The Other Woman"

As I was driving through a windswept rain pelting my Toyota, I texted Laura, “I almost killed a married man tonight.” My friend shot back, “What a shame.” I grinned knowing what she meant. Although I was maneuvering a learning curve in life, I slammed on my brakes that night understanding I was still being naïve after living as a divorcee for eight years. There was no white space on his ring finger where a wedding band might’ve been. I let him off real easy. I didn’t want blood all over my bitten fingernails.

Why "working on a guy" is doomed to fail

Why "working on a guy" is doomed to fail

I was talking to a girl recently and she mentioned she was "working on a decent guy.......but it's so much work I'm about to give up". She was even nice enough to bake a cake for the guy, sent it to his place and then......heard nothing from him. In her mind she was being really nice and showing she cared, but by being so nice she was actually screwing up her own chances. It's the same situation a lot of girls I've talked to put themselves through (working on a guy) and it's doomed to fail. WHY? 1) WHAT IS DECENT?

Worst Gift Ever

For Christmas a few years ago my grandmother gifted a beautiful, new, three-pack of lint rollers. I have no idea why. I have never been short of lint rollers or felt that I was especially linty - but apparently she disagreed. This was the only thing I received from her that Christmas - so it's not like it was a stocking stuffer - that was the whole shebang. I'm still not quite sure what I did wrong that year but now when I have kids I won't threaten them with coal as a present for when they're bad - but lint rollers.
