Honesty, empathy and more things he's really looking for, according to a guy.
[Note: In this article, I speak as a masculine man in relationship to feminine women. Please adjust the gender terms to suit your relationship life.] In previous articles, I described narcissism as an extreme form of selfishness. But narcissism goes beyond mere self-interest. It’s more akin to egotism — an excessive or exaggerated sense of self-importance. In the extreme, a narcissist exists alone at the center of his (or her) known universe.
Guys are difficult. We don't always understand what's going through their minds, especially when it comes to dating and relationships. We've all been there when the guy we like doesn't like us back, but we often don't know why. Our expert reveals eighteen reasons along with the solutions to moving on.
Breaking up is hard to do. What can be even harder to do is when you feel like you want to get back together with your ex, especially if he doesn't want the same things. But is it a good idea to get back together with him? And why do you want to as well? Our expert reveals what could possibly come from this.
Last night I was watching “Justified,” the TV series with star Timothy Olyphant. Most likely the advertising agency for this program thinks the audience is 99% male and in researching on Mediawiki, I discovered I was right. From Mediawiki: “FX’s covets men in the 18-49 age range as their target audience. Their promotional techniques and the subject matter in their shows appeal directly to this demographic. FX features a late-night programming block called Fully Baked. It runs Louie, Archer, and other original comedy series.
Researchers have devoted a ton of time and resources to discovering something I've known my whole adult life: week-old scruff is hot. Here's their reasoning.
Question: I have an unusual situation here...a guy I served with in the military back in my twenties (we are in our mid 40's now), found me on Facebook two years ago (I was married then). He often sent me texts: jokes, political things, discussions about our kids (we both have teenaged boys, he's divorced). We discovered that we had crushes on each other back then but were unaware of it.
If narcissism were a disease, it would be considered a pandemic. Our culture not only condones selfishness, but celebrates it as a virtue. Materialism, driven by corporate interests and advertising, reinforces the focus on accumulation for self. The media is suffused with a focus on individual success, beauty, celebrity, fame, and status. The rugged individual is held up as a model of excellence, alongside the ultra-rich CEO, the celebrity sports figure, the bad-boy artist, and the soldier of fortune.
The Depth of a Man I was greeted this morning by a love note from my beloved. He had written an essay about love, and read it to me. Of his love for me, he said, “It is deep and profound, like the ocean." I felt undulating waves of affection rise up through me as I heard his words. I embraced his tenderness, his love, and the depth and glory of him. Every woman wants to be loved this way!
As promised, here is the second installment in my exposé on men’s dirty little secrets. As I’m sure many of you know, men are visual beings. We are motivated to action and stimulated most by our sense of sight. As such, when we see something provocative it can have a profound effect on us. And by profound effect, I mean, we get an erection. It’s automatic, we think very little about it and are fairly accustomed to it, as we have regularly had to deal with this “affliction” since we were but mere lads. And all o
Question: I am fairly young, 23, and I've been hooking up with this guy for 7 months now. When we started hooking up he stated that he didn’t want a girlfriend, and he still feels the same way. Recently I told him that I was developing feelings for him. To protect me from getting hurt he decided that we should end things, saying that he didn’t want to hurt me in the long run (which he believed was inevitable). Knowing that he said that and that he was capable of doing such a hurtful thing,
It will come as no surprise to any woman, that as a rule, men think about sex frequently … even constantly. And in order to keep things always fresh and interesting, men fuel their sexual mental meanderings with images so profoundly decadent, they would make a porn star blush.
Question: I have been with my boyfriend for over two years. He often complains about my seventeen-year-old daughter. When we’re together she will sometimes tease him or say something that bothers him, and he will get up and leave, then call me and tell me why he left. I have spoken with my daughter and she doesn’t feel that she’s done anything wrong. What should I do? ...Cherise
by Aline P. Zoldbrod Ph.D. (EXPERT) March 2013 is the fifteeth anniversary of Viagra becoming available (on the 27th of March, to be exact). In a lot of ways, Viagra’s invention merits a celebration. Erectile dysfunction is quite common--more common as men age, but not rare in younger men. Men with E.D. are miserable. If they are married, they are insecure and defensive, avoid sex, get depressed; sometimes their feelings come out as anger toward their partner.
In a recent study conducted by Harris Interactive for AnastasiaDate.com, a group of 1,000 men were polled on their thoughts on online dating. The men ranged in ages from 35-55. Over half of the men had tried online dating, and of those who tried, over 65 percent had actually met someone through the medium.
In this chaotic world, dating someone from a country other than your own can be a real adventure. The fascination begins with his sexy accent or the way he mangles your native language. Perhaps he is more passionate than the local men, and he really treats you like a princess. But there are cultural differences to be aware of.
