By John Powers Contrary to popular belief, men are simple creatures. It doesn’t take much to make us happy. All you have to do is find out what your man likes and then take an interest. That’s honestly all it takes.
By Amy Osmond Cook, Ph.D. Reese Witherspoon is my favorite actress. Not only is she a beautiful woman and a classy mom, but she also starred in Legally Blonde, a girl-power movie that I watched every day (I kid you not!) for the first three months after my divorce. I cried when Warner dumped Elle and cried again when Elle emerged triumphant at Harvard.
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. But just because Kim Kardashian or Ashton Kutcher and others say it, doesn't mean it's true!
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.

Dear Dr. Romance: I was brought up with eight children where father was gone from home early morning til late night. Mother all the time angry at one kid or the other. Everybody use to say I was the better behaved sibling among all, and my mom was always partial to other children in comparison to me. Anyway I am a grandmother now . After marriage and having kids I started devloping emotional problem where I needed to seek psychiatric help. I was dignosed as bipolar.I was in and out of Hospital and taking treatment for long period of time.
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.
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?
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.
