Am I the Crazy Overprotective Friend or Can a Man Completely Transform in 6 Months?

I have been following your blog for years and it has led me to meet an amazing man who makes me very happy – so thank you for that! I am writing today to ask you about how to help a close friend of mine. She is dating a guy who has a history of not so stellar behavior.
They broke up twice before when he cheated/disappeared to meet his ex on the other side of the country. My friend is gorgeous, smart and very put together while on the other hand this guy in every category is far beneath her. I saw how heartbroken

Another VDay Without True Love (Princess Bride Edition!)

This is a special post with a special Valentine’s Day offer, so make sure you read to the end.
I just finished reading “The Princess Bride” to my kids.
You may think of it as a beloved Rob Reiner movie from 1987, but in fact, it started as a 1973 novel by William Goldman that runs nearly 500 pages.
If you’ve seen the movie, you know the theme: how deeply Princess Buttercup loves Westley, and how Westley battles giants, rats, swordsmen, and torture chambers to return to his beloved.
What you may not know – unless you recently read the book – is how highly dysfunctional their relationship is.

Am I a Jerk? Wait, Don’t Answer That…!

Is this dating and relationship advice? Not exactly.
But I really enjoyed this piece called “How to Tell if You’re a Jerk.”
The same way there is a lot written as to whether our President is mentally unstable or just merely an asshole, this article explores what it means to know oneself – or not.
“I suspect there is a zero correlation between people’s self-opinion about their degree of jerkitude and their true overall degree of jerkitude. Some recalcitrant jerks might recognize that they are so, but others might think themselves quite dandy. Some genuine sweethearts might fully recognize how sweet they are, while others might have far too

(Infographic) Everything You Should Know About Happy Relationships

Man, sometimes I wish I were a graphic designer.
Because then I could whip up neat little images like this one, called “Everything You Should Know About Happy Relationships in One Infographic.”
Check it out. I’ll wait.
Of course, this infographic does not include everything. But it does share a fair bit of information that, if you’re a regular reader, you probably heard here, too.
Be kind. Have sex. Express gratitude. Keep things fun. A happy marriage is worth a lot. Kids don’t usually make couples happier. Couples get happier after kids are grown up.

Let’s Generalize About Men

Generalizations are a useful shorthand when trying to make a point; they’re problematic when you take the same broad brush and apply it to every member of a group.
Rachel Bloom of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend on the CW gets this one right.
Right now we’re angry and sad.
It’s our right to get righteously mad.
At every member of the opposite sex.

“Oh god, we hate them. Let’s not distinguish between them at all.”
Let’s just drink a lot more alcohol.
And then high five each other as we make a bunch of blanket statements.
Let’s generalize about men.

Want a Happy Life? Follow These 4 Steps in This Order.

Things that should not be controversial:
Some people are more attractive than others.
Some careers are more desirable than others.
Some choices are better than others.
I am not denying the fact that this is subjective on an individual basis.
If you think that Danny DeVito is cuter than George Clooney, or that the coal miner is as appealing as CEO, that’s your business, but, let’s face it: you’re in the minority.

Healthy Masculinity: an Interview with Evan Marc Katz by Amy Loftus

In the past few months, I’ve penned two pieces that touched on hot-button issues.
One was called “Why Men Aren’t Speaking Up About the #MeToo Movement.”
The other was called “Why Married Women Get a Raw Deal.”
My intention was to insert myself into the narrative so that I could offer a nuanced first-person take on both issues. Yet, both pieces missed the mark.
In the former, I posited that there are a lot of good guys who don’t know what to do about #MeToo and that change will take place with more courageous women calling men out for sexual harassment. The criticism was that I was absolving men of

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

(My Gift to You!) The 8 Massive Mistakes You’re Making in Relationships

Have you ever thought there was something wrong with you?
After years of dating, it feels like there are only 3 outcomes – all of them bad.

He wants to have sex, but doesn’t want to commit.
He commits quickly, but then pulls away a few weeks/months later.
He becomes your boyfriend and you discover he’s not the man you thought.

You’re a smart, strong, successful woman. You’re nobody’s fool.
So how does this keep happening to you, over and over?
More importantly, how can you make sure that when you find another promising man, you don’t repeat the same mistakes of the past?
