This Blog Post May Change Your Life With Men Over 50 Forever

In last week's blog, I shared the Four Magic Words that men love to hear...I need your help.

Have you tried using them yet and how are they working for you?

In today's blog, I want to share an example of how well the Four Magic Words can work for you in other areas of your life with men.

My client, Karen, is a powerhouse at work and she knows how to get the job done quickly and efficiently. At the office, she's a true Alpha Female.

An inability to flip the switch to her softer side after work meant her Alpha characteristics were showing up in her dating life, sending men running for the hills as fast as they could go.

Karen wasn't ready to practice the feminine skills I'd taught her just yet in a dating situation. It felt scary to her, like she was giving up her power.

So she decided to try them out at work, where she felt more in control of her environment.

She had a meeting scheduled with the CEO of a major corporation.

In the past, she'd have come into the meeting much like a bull in a china shop.

She'd have pushed and forced facts and figures at him until the deal was signed, sealed and delivered.

Both would come out of the meeting exhausted and worn down.

This time, Karen decided to try out the feminine approach we'd worked on in our sessions together.

She figured she had nothing to lose by using those four magic words, "I need your help" with the CEO she was working with.

She slowed herself down as she went into the meeting and asked the very macho CEO for his help on the project.

He gladly stepped up and within five minutes, the deal was sealed.

They spent the next hour talking and by the end of the conversation, he told her to call on him anytime she needed his help.

She thanked him for making this deal happen and left the board room feeling like she was on top of the world.

She was astonished by this "miracle" of how easy it could be to get the cooperation of a man.

So why do I did I share this story with you?

Karen witnessed what every woman witnesses when she consciously flips the switch to her feminine side; men begin stepping over themselves to be your hero and help you.

By coming from your softer side when you're out there dating, men will feel like you really understand who they are as men.

They'll want to connect with you on that emotional level they crave with a woman.

Now here is the other secret: When a man does things for you, thank him and tell him how much you appreciate his efforts.

The more love, appreciation and respect a man gets from you, the more he will want to give and do for you.

So like Karen, try your feminine wiles on male friends, business associates and the men you go out with and watch how your life with men begins to change.

Let me what you think about bringing out your feminine side with men by posting your comments below.
