Challenged with how to respond when a man does something that ticks you off? Are you an independent, smart single woman who is dating and looking for love? If so, you've likely been challenged with how to respond when a man does something that ticks you off. What are realistic expectations? What should you tolerate? I get asked this question in many forms. It can be confusing. On the one hand, you have a strong desire to be liked and finally find The One.

Measuring the Seams of your Relationship

In my on going quest for personal growth and my commitment to expanding my consciousness I have been constantly pulled and pushed to challenge myself in looking at how I can shift my perspective.

Women have the mistaken belief that by always putting a man's needs first, doing what he wants and taking care of him, he will fall in love with them.  This actually has the opposite effect. You may be great in bed, hotter than Halle Berry, sweet, sexy and supportive, but he will still not want to make a commitment if you never say that word. That one word is "No."

Forget about forgiving him. Forgive yourself

Recently I had a match that just got to me...or should I say, I let him get to me. He was funny, sensual and had this artistic endeavor that just made me REALLY want to get to know him.
