There's a good joke about a man who is stuck in a flood and keeps waiting for God to save him. I found a version of it here: The Flood: The river is overflowing, and the dam is breaking, and an old man is sitting on the porch of his house watching the water rise. He is singing hymns. Along come some members of the national guard in a 4-wheel drive truck. The stop when they see the man. "Come on!" they yell.

Dating question for Hadley: For 6 Friday nights in a row, I’ve been dating a woman I met online. Last Friday we had sex for the first time, and it was hot. On Thursday, I called her for a date on Saturday, thinking she’d be happy to be upgraded from Friday to Saturday night. But she was upset that I didn’t send her flowers or call her the day after we had sex.
There are bitches and there are psychos. Bitches are loved, respected and get what they want. Psychos are scary, must be avoided and unpredictable. Embrace your inner bitch and you will be amazed with the results. You will see that life becomes richer and more rewarding once you stop labelling yourself and others as bitches and good girls. They are just labels to bring a person down, anybody, including yourself. Maybe instead we should allow ourselves to embrace our emotions and listen to what they say?
Recent research has shown that language has an impact. A new study has found that the phrase, "That's so gay!" can have lasting effects on students who consider themselves as bisexual, gay, lesbian or transgender (LGBT). Words matter, there is no doubt about it and what we say to our children can and will have a lasting effect of their future happiness.
Over the past few months I’ve profiled six types of women – I call them FemiTypes – who have less than healthy relationships with men. I’ve written about The Princess, The 18 Year Old, The Scaredy Cat, The Wow-Me Woman, The Bitter Woman and The Sexpot. Why have I written about women when you really want to know about men? Because I know it will help lead you get to where you want to be: in a loving relationship with a man who is devoted to you.
I recently read an article on marriage that asked spouses to dismiss the idea of equality in partnership. Its author called for couples to stop tallying points, stop having power struggles and just love and honor their significant other as selflessly as possible. Well, the majority of the many comments posted about the article were surprisingly hostile—most people didn’t agree, to say the least, with the author. They felt his advice was not practical and some women readers took it as chauvinist. But I took a lot of good from its words.
Do you find yourself fighting the urge to say to your teen, "Been there, done that. Let me show you how it's done"? I do, too... although looking back to my younger days, I can honestly say that I learned the most when I had to solve things myself. (On a personal note, my children were amazed to hear that when I studied abroad during my junior year of college, I was only able to call home three times. There were no cell phones, no computers or email, and it cost $40 for a 20-minute phone call, which I had to make from the post office.
While our male counterparts can confuse the heck out of us Dignity Daters, sometimes they can be the best when it comes to dishing out dating advice. 1. Do your own thing. Don’t let a man become the center of your universe. If you make a man your whole life, he’s going to lose interest because he will most likely feel smothered! Remember, he fell in love with the dynamic “you” who has her own interests and passions who wanted to make him a part of your life, not the whole darn thing.
