Womanizers are as old as Casanova. They are masters at expressing empathy and understanding women's feelings. They will let you vent so you feel relaxed and safe. Then he makes his move and before you know it, you are making the bed and he is no longer in it!
Continuing from yesterday, it's important to make yourself memorable when you are dating. There are tons of women out there; you want to be the one he wants to know. When you follow this advice and get your story out in the right way, the guys who are good matches will take notice. They are getting to know you (sometimes) in one conversation…so make it count!
As a now retired corporate veteran of several Fortune 500 companies, I’m well schooled in the reliance on a solid corporate mission statement – something that embodies what the company stands for. In fact, the companies that I support the most, that I’m most loyal to and that I find myself most often praising, have, in my opinion, the most well-thought out, meaningful mission statements. Take for example, one of my all time favorite brands: Ben & Jerry’s.
INTRODUCTION Do you feel misunderstood by your partner? Seem to keep getting into repetitive arguments over the same things? Have hidden resentments toward him and a mountain of unmet needs? If you're like a lot of other gay couples, chances are your listening skills might need a jump-start; and if it's not that, then fine-tuning your ability to listen can go a long way toward bridging the gap between you and your lover and bringing about more clarity and connection in your relationship.
In all fairness, none of us were taught how to handle conflict productively. Conflict in a relationship can be scary because anger and criticism are typically at the root of conflict and most of us have not had formal training in how to resolve it. Our parents did not teach us to handle conflict appropriately. Instead, we were taught what not to do if we felt angry, e.g. don’t say bad words, don’t hit her, just ignore him, turn the other cheek, etc.
As if being a kid isn’t hard enough, one day you wake up and realize that your mood is unpredictable, your voice doesn’t sound like your own, you have a bit of a scent on your body, acne is now a constant friend, and what was cool is no longer. And let’s not forget about parents who are probably more in your space and worried about everything from you ‘not thinking things through,’ being in your room too much, being on the phone or computer too much, you having a new style of clothes, and different grades and friends.
Emotional affairs (EAs) are sneaky and it is common to find out you are in one without really understanding when and how it happened. Face book, instant messaging, texting, and tweeting have opened doors for emotional affairs to storm in and have also built the walls necessary to keep it secret. These are two of the absolutes for an emotional affair to exist. EAs begin innocently enough. They take place at work, school, happy hours, and coffee hours, almost anywhere whenever two lonely people can meet up one on one and talk.
We don't always get to choose the circumstances of our lives. Sometimes shit happens. When you go through experiences of chronic illness, caregiving or loss you can't help but be changed by them. They break you or they reveal to you inner strength you did not know you had. I love having a plan. I do well with setting goals and working toward them. I've got a pretty high degree of self-discipline and focus. But when life shook my world upside down all I could do was choose to make the most of it.
This is one of the most common questions my clients ask me. There may be as many different answers as there are people asking but I find that many fit into these three categories: 1. To see ourselves differently. Some people convince themselves that they are a reflection of the person they are with. They may have a belief that says, “If my partner is attractive or successful, then I feel attractive or successful”. But there are a couple of problems with this belief.
I can answer this in three words: You’re not memorable. That’s it. Whether it’s the hot man you had a nice chat with at the local coffee shop or the guy you had a great first date with, getting him to ask you out can take some skill. Yep, I said skill. You’re not 18 anymore, and the men you are interested in (or should be) are mature men of depth. They have busy lives (like you) and would probably rather be single than in a bad relationship (like you).
