What a guy thinks when he sees you
Forget about clinging to your twenties and thirties. Great things that happen when you turn 40.
Okay, look. If there's one lesson I have learned from Blogging and living my life publicly it's been this: Don't date and blog. Here's the deal. Men hate drama. Even if it's good drama. They just hate it. They especially hate being a character in a woman's little drama. Blogging = drama. Worse, they hate hearing every innermost thought that we have when those thoughts mention "marriage" or "Prince Charming" or "The One." I once said I was smitten with a guy after a first date only to have our second date broken because he admitted to reading my blog and freaking out. Smitten. All I said was that I was smitten. He ran so fast he left skid marks on my blog. You'd think, being that I've immersed myself in this little dating world and positioned myself as an "expert" (I'm not) that I'd know that blogging about a man and getting all gushy after a couple dates is the kiss of death.

THE REASON WE DON'T GET IT
There are some pretty consistent reasons among men why they dump their girlfriends. Let's look at what some women do to end up being single again. Of course, this doesn't fit every instance of a breakup, and this doesn't apply to every woman, but a lot of guys tend to come up with the same reasons.

A guy asked me recently for guidance in his romantic life and an answer to the burning question: "what do women want?"
