Women are attracted to dangerous men, in real life and to literary characters like '50 Shades' heartthrob Christian Grey. Relationship expert John Gray explains why, and the reason might surprise you: it's scientific!
Earlier this week, we posted an interview with John Gray, whose newest book, "Work with Me: The 8 Blind Spots Between Men and Women in Business," examines how men and women could better understand each other in the workplace. Here are the highlights.
John Gray and Barbara Annis' newest book, "Work with Me: The 8 Blind Spots Between Men and Women in Business," addresses the false assumptions and miscommunication between men and women, both in the workplace and at home.
As we get older we start to feel the results of ageing caused by the decrease of hormone production. By the time men and women have reached the age of 50, we have lost at least half of their hormone production. For so many women who have chosen to bypass hormone replacement therapy for alternative therapy; the information found in John Gray’s book Venus on Fire Mars on Ice is highly useful. Teaches you to teach your body produce the good hormones naturally.
Did you ever ask yourself “how much is a relationship really worth? “ Am I really in love with this person? “If I found myself without a partner, would I survive?” Ok that last one was a little melodramatic but you get the point. Mars Venus recognizes, seems more likely than not, women are more likely to change and bend to make a relationship work. In the process, losing themselves and ultimately losing their individuality. There’s a fine line between picking your battles and sacrificing the lamb.
After getting out of a relationship, sometimes the thought of getting back into a relationship remains just that, a thought. We can become immobilized with indecision, because we fear that we’ll make a character mistake again, or that we won’t listen and honor the nudges from our intuition telling us if she or he’s good for us or not. So how do we discern which little voice in our head is our intuition speaking, and which voices are just that—noises of self-loathing, self-derision, self-denial, self-absorption, and self-esteem?
Mars Venus feels you should love and cherish your children. Every child is different and should be treated per their personality in order to obtain positive results. However, there is always those moments when parents should have the confidence to lay down the law in order to gain their child's respect and raise a capable young adult. The key is to find the balance between strict and lenient. If your child is walking all over you, here are some tips for reclaiming your rightful role as head of the household:
As John Gray, PhD, so famously states Boys are from Mars, Girls are from Venus and all Children are from Heaven. Societies throughout the world are currently undergoing a global shift in consciousness to the possibilities that lay ahead for us when we focus on relaying positive messages and reinforcing positive behaviors.
We at Mars Venus know we live in a world that is hurting. My question to you is what do you do on a daily basis to make a difference in someone’s life? Last week I found out our family friend died. Oftentimes we get so busy with the to-do lists in our daily life that we miss spending time and telling the people that matter most to us how pivotal they are in our lives. Why do we do this? And, more importantly, what are the ways we can show unconditional love to the important people in our lives?
Mars Venus asks the questions, 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.
We all have moments when we procrastinate at work. Mars Venus believes, we typically procrastinate when we are stressed out and need to re-energize; we’re a little anxious as we’re figuring out the day’s priorities; or we have a few minutes to kill say before a meeting, between a project and lunch, waiting to talk to a co-worker or it’s almost time to go home. Procrastination and complacency are two blocks any of us can fall prey.
We’re all pressed for time. Whether it is due to our jobs, raising a family, or both—many couples find themselves dropping into bed at the end of the day. Often, one partner is ready and hoping for sex, while the other partner is not interested, trying to get interested, but too tired, or already asleep. So who says you can’t wake your partner up for a quickie? Did you know that men’s testosterone peaks in the morning? One small aspect of a thriving sex life, are quickies where one partner or both may or may not orgasm in a short amount of time.
One of the best feelings in the world is when a child’s eyes light up in recognition and they run at you, throwing their little arms around you for a big hug and cuddle. I remember promising myself when I was about ten years old and dealing with my father’s death that I would never lose that innocence, and wonder and joy for life.
Did you recently break-up with a boyfriend or girlfriend? Were you hoping for a clean break, but instead it has been anything but clean, because after all you had time and your heart invested in the relationship? Did you know that men and women respond differently after a break up? Mars Venus believes men, generally speaking, jump into their next relationship, typically before they’ve resolved their feelings or found closure from their previous relationship.
The fact of the matter is, it’s ok to feel bad after a break up. Especially if you have been together for a long time. You have shared everything from checking accounts to the same tastes in DVR recordings. You have to allow yourself time to heal. Whatever reason the break up occurred , whether it was one sided or not, you are left with half an empty closet where before you didn’t have enough space for your “too many shoes.” That extra set of dishes you kept in
