Who Pays for What and Why? If you are part of an upscale matchmaking service, especially the kind where the ladies don’t have to pay to join, you know it is customary for the man to pay for the date. But if you are internet-dating you should probably expect to pay half. Many times it is just easier to go for a coffee. Men and women’s roles are a bit mixed up these days. Women want equality in every area, but when it comes to dating, we still love to be treated like a lady, protected and taken care of.

My latest client wrote me an email the other day. It struck me, so I asked her permission to include excerpts in a blog post. She agreed, as long as we changed the names of her and her husband. Read on: Hi Eric, Ken gave me a hand job last night that made my back arch. I came so hard it felt like an impact. We are communicating so much better already with your methods we learned during our first session.
I have been interested in hot safe sex since the beginning of my sex life. I've always cared deeply for the women I'm with's peace of mind during and after having sex with me as much as my own. Twice I've sealed the erotic deal because I was ready with condoms, lube, and an honest attitude. They could feel that I was the real thing, telling the truth, and not one of those jackasses who pull off the condom in the middle of it or right before they orgasm inside her.

Remember as a child playing a game, when something would go awry and your playmates would say, “I dare you to do that.” You’d look nervous and frightened, and then they would say, “I double dare you.” Now you’re in a pickle! You don’t want to look cowardly even though you’re tempted to say, “Oh no, I can’t do that”. BUT if you say that then you suffer the consequences of being called, “chicken, baby, scaredy cat, and etc.” Remember how good it felt when you took the dare and WON!

There are nearly seven billion people alive on the planet today and approximately half of them are single. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the odds of finding love are working in your favor. In fact, one statistician believes that there are 1.3 million possible soul mates available for each of us.
Many times, when I see single women in my office for therapy, they talk about the men they are dating. I have always been struck with how they still wait for the text message before going to sleep, and lose endless nights of sleep if their boyfriend hasn’t called them. They become physically anxious as they describe the tension they feel, wondering if this guy is going to ask them out for the weekend.
Imagine if FedEx could deliver your mate to you. Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could skip dating all together? OK, Wishful Thinker, time to wake up and come back to reality. If there is a way to meet great prospects without dating, I haven’t heard of it yet. And...the more you fear dating, the longer your wait for true love. Can you learn to actually ENJOY dating? Or at least tolerate it? Absolutely!

When you find out while dating that your relationship is going to become a long distance relationship due to either one or both person’s jobs, which way do you run? If you run away from each other to deal with the stressors involved with re-locating, then you may not be so lucky. If you cannot stand the fact physical intimacy goes out the door while you’re living miles apart, maybe you need to revisit your definition of a committed relationship.
