Should Your Partner Also be Your Best Friend?

Marriages struggle and collapse all the time because, in many cases, the spouses are lovers and business partners, but not best friends. So, why don’t more women marry men who are their best friends? That’s what we’re talking about on today’s Love U Podcast.

Why Do I Always Want Men Who Are Taken or Not Available?

I have come to learn that we manifest in our lives what we believe we deserve. I was a late bloomer to love because I never believed myself attractive enough for men. It wasn’t until my early twenties when I realized that I was pretty and got guys’ attention.
I’m now 27 and have had a series of very short non-relationships and one “serious” relationship no one approved of. Looking back, I feel like I’ve only been able to manifest love out of men I can’t have.
Men with girlfriends. Men with wives. Gay men. Older men. 20 years older men with four kids, two ex-wives and

A Thanksgiving Thank You from Me to You

Let’s be honest: these are pretty scary times we’re living in.
Floods. Fires. Earthquakes.
North Korea. Russia. Nazi rallies.
Facebook. Twitter. Fake news.
It’s overwhelming and increasingly hard to compartmentalize.
Do you tune out because it’s too depressing?
Do you read vigilantly because the stakes are so high?
I don’t claim to know the answers, but I do know this: we cannot let negativity take over.
I don’t claim to know the answers, but I do know this: we cannot let negativity take over.
I look at my own life, and apply the same principles of compartmentalizing the negativity.
I have close to an ideal marriage. 9 years in, we’re best friends and as solid

Hello

There are some certainties in life--one is that every time I make a resolution to post more often, I will break it. Another is that every time I promise not to apologize for posting so rarely, I will apologize. Who exactly am I apologizing to? Myself, I guess. There was a time when this blog was so central to my life. Like, if I went on a date with someone and it started to be a relationship, I felt I had to confess about the blog. Hundreds of people read it and parts of my life were unfolding in semi-public. Not so much anymore.

He Committed to Me After Two Weeks. When Can I Let Down My Guard?

Your advice has helped me navigate modern dating. I figured out the ones who were just in it for sex, I dumped the ones who wouldn’t commit, I learned never to text after a great first date. All that advice definitely made dating easier emotionally.
I recently started dating a new guy. After two weeks, he asked me to be his girlfriend, he deleted his profile, he’s introduced me to his friends. He brought up the talk, he ticks all the boxes.
We both talked it over about how we’re in the right place for a committed relationship, we like one another, and most importantly, we both

Camille Paglia on Hugh Hefner: Retrograde But Sophisticated

“It’s complicated.”
It may feel wishy-washy and dissatisfying, but often that’s the best way to categorize things that are neither purely good or purely evil.
Such is the legacy of Playboy founder, Hugh Hefner.
“It’s complicated.” Often that’s the best way to categorize things that are neither purely good or purely evil.
With everything that’s been written since his death, it doesn’t seem there’s much left to say. Many have told sad, depraved stories from inside the Playboy Mansion, none of which can be defended. Others point to Hefner’s erudition, timeliness and pioneering of an international lifestyle brand.
Yet the most interesting thing I’ve read about Hefner comes courtesy of Camille Paglia,

Why Do Men Not Accept Me and My Flaws When I Fully Accept Them?

One trend in your advice is that men just want someone who accepts them for who they are, loves them, doesn’t nag them, etc. I am someone who does this, for the most part. I have had 4 serious boyfriends in the past. I have never had a problem when my boyfriend goes out with friends, goes on a guy’s trip, works late, watches porn, etc. I try to encourage all these things (and even love watching porn myself). I try to set a very accepting tone in my relationships and I encourage complete freedom and trust from both parties.
I am overall a fun, accepting

[Video] I’m Crazy. You’re Crazy. Let’s Get Married!

Do you have 19 minutes and 53 seconds?
Good.
You MUST watch this video by Alain de Botton about the nature of love.
I’ve written about de Botton before, with good reason: the man is brilliant, wise, and funny, no matter what his subject matter.
But there’s something special about watching a video in which the author:
Rails against romanticism – destroying the concept of soulmates, destiny and “you just know” feelings.
Pillories the idea that your partner should confirm all your feelings, think you’re perfect, and read your mind.
Points out that we are highly flawed people with few powers of introspection and capacity for change who are dating other highly flawed people

Why Good Men Were Shocked By The #MeToo Movement

Harvey Weinstein was the tip of the iceberg. After millions of women shared their #MeToo stories of sexual harassment and assault, the world could no longer ignore this pervasive problem. Today, I’m continuing this conversation to ensure that you know that you’re believed, while, at the same time, explaining how good men completely missed the boat on this one.
