I'll Have What She's Having When on a Date

Everyone tells you what not to eat on the first date. Often they’re foods that are messy, phallic, or make your date feel like he’s dining with a rabbit. However, rarely is there ever advice on what you should eat when a prospective boyfriend takes you out for sushi when you hate fish.

When dating him and he’s pursuing you and you’re not interested, then you are the one holding all the cards. You always hear women talking about how they want the guy that is not available, so if you’re not into it just be upfront with him about it. You have to be firm but kind and just say, “I’m flattered that you’re so interested in me, but I think I am looking for something different”.

When do you introduce your date to the kids?

One of the relationship questions I get that comes up often by my clients is about when to meet the kids.

Chivalry in Our Times Today

Chivalry in Our Times Today

Chivalry still means a man being kind and courteous in the presence of and at the service of any woman he encounters throughout his day. At the most personal level, it's about treating your wife and special ladies in your life (daughter, mother, sisters, grandmothers and aunts) with reverence and love…ever endeavoring to do things - great and small - to let them know they are special.

96 Words for Love

96 Words for Love

“Sanskrit has ninety-six words for love; ancient Persian has eighty, Greek three, and English only one. This is indicative of the poverty of awareness or emphasis that we give to that tremendously important realm of feeling. Eskimos have thirty words for snow, because it is a life-and-death matter to them to have exact information about the element they live with so intimately. If we had a vocabulary of thirty words for love … we would immediately be richer and more intelligent in this human element so close to our heart.

Is dating fun for you?

Is dating fun for you?

This past weekend I held a two day retreat for my private one-on-one coaching ladies. It was here in NYC in a beautiful Soho Loft. In one word it was PHENOMENAL.
