Everyone knows about the commitment-phobic guy, but what's really not talked about is the woman who shies away from a true connection. Not long ago, "Marin" asked me how to handle her avoidance of relationships.

Holidays are the time when we feel the need to share ourselves with a loved one. It’s the time for connecting with our family, remembering our roots. It is also the time for reflection: Another year has gone by… What were my hopes for this year? Have I progressed in the direction I wanted to? For single people who are hoping to find a life partner this may be a bitter realization: Another year has gone by; I am still single. It hasn’t happened…
Why we do some things, no one knows. But if we think it’s love, we’ll do it. Like telling someone we ski when we don’t. Because they’re into skiing and we want to do things with them and we just know it’ll be easy to pick it up. No, no, no. Do not do this. I learned this one the hard way. And ended up on the roof. Of a shed. On the slopes.
What Happened On the Date that Turned Him Off? A friend of mine almost canceled a date with a guy because she woke up with a zit. She came over to my apartment freaking out: “How big is it? Is it all you can see when you look at me? Should I make up an excuse to cancel?”
Guys Suck! They only care about Sex. They don't know how to treat a woman.

I wrote a book on the topic, and right before I was ready to publish it, my computers were stolen and that book as well.

As a dating a coach I have been learning more and more about what makes a woman attracted to a man. Sometimes the answer is a simple one and I can tell just by observing my client, what is wrong or right. However, other times I am completely stumped. Most of my clients are like this, very successful in every other aspect of their life and yet have never had a girlfriend or an intimate relationship with a woman.
