The only thing I care about is: Are you embracing and expressing the unique flavor of your own masculinity? That's the real question.
Dating is probably the most annoying and crazy thing I have ever had to do, but I do know this. Every experience I have had, every crazy curveball this life has thrown at me, I have learned from each experience what I do not want in a partner and in a relationship.
The number one sex problem that I hear from women is the lack of desire for sex. They do still enjoy sex once they get started, they tell me, but they're seldom in the mood ahead of time. It isn't just a problem for women -- many men also report decreased desire -- but for women, it's the main complaint.
Perhaps almost as bad a going through a divorce yourself is watching someone you love go through one. Whether it's a parent, a son, a daughter, or a close relative or friend, seeing someone in that kind of pain can cause you anxiety and make you feel helpless and frustrated.
A few months ago, after being told by my agent '... well Brenda they're jut going younger now', I realized I was stepping into another phase of my life. Though that was hard to swallow, I had to start thinking, okay now what?!
It's true. I never thought I'd be working in the most famous bondage, discipline, sadism, and masochism (BDSM) dungeon in New York City. Not to mention that I'd start at the ripe age of 55. If you had told me 10 years ago that I would kick a man straight in the balls wearing six-inch heels, I would have kicked you out of my house.
I was recently contacted to potentially mediate a litigated divorce matter prior to trial, which is rapidly approaching. My name had been included on a list from the attorneys, along with two other mediators.
Bottom line: If you want longevity and good health, it takes a village filled with good people. Best of all, this is a great excuse to drag your husband or partner to another dinner party.
The BE MODERN MAN rally cry is "ITS OUR NORMAL TO BE EXTRAORDINARY". That is a very powerful statement. It is not our normal to be criminals, it is not our normal to be unemployed, it is not our normal to be below average, however, it is our normal to be extraordinary!
New research confirms what we already knew: Women are more inclined to let their freak flag fly on vacation and less concerned about catching a ...
They fall in love with you in the way that you want someone to love you. It isn't frivolous or lustful. It isn't selfish. It's real.
The #1 topic everyone I know is talking about are their relationships. If they aren't in one, they're talking about how to find one. If they are in one, they're talking about what's wrong with it. I've been on both sides... so I totally get it.
Dating is different than it used to be, and you truly may not know what you are looking for at first. Take time to figure it all out before you get serious with someone new.
Is it odd and unconventional and hard to explain to new people who enter MY life, yes it is. However; I wouldn't change any of it. To see my daughter smile, to see my friend happy and to see my ex find the love he deserves makes me happy.
We don't all come to the realization that women's issues are men's issues at the same time (and some never do). But they are. We don't need to think of our mothers, friends, daughters or sisters when we want to think about how horrible gender-based violence is. We need to think of women as people.
I'm not going to tell you what your Sunday school teacher thinks you should do. I'm going to give you the advice that your best friend would give you (if she were totally cool and after she'd had a few glasses of wine). I'm gonna get real.
