A successful romance can be quite formulaic, for there are certain elements of dating that guys should never overlook. And with all the women out there who complain that their boyfriends are not satisfying them one way or another, one has to wonder: Do guys really know how to be good boyfriends or is it just impossible to satisfy women?

We all know the classic bitches: Women who speak their mind rather than bite their tongue. The women who rage against anything that provokes them: the man, the kids, the boss, their PMS. While we like to think their bad behavior is simply a case of bad judgment, new research shows that “bitchy” may be a gene.
Sorry, guys, but it’s been scientifically proven that a woman can now blame her anger and aggression on her genes. Scientific research found that some women are genetically programmed to be angry and aggressive by a serotonin receptor gene. The good news is that not every woman carries it. Read more…
With films “Drive” and “The Ides of March” about to debut, 30-year-old Ryan Gosling’s about to go from being known as “the dude from ‘The Notebook’” to “the hottest actor in Hollywood.” So what does that mean for Gosling, besides being able to negotiate $20-million film contracts? Scoring tons of women. That’s right, Leonardo finally has some serious competition, but fortunately for Leo, who prefers to date women while their in their physical prime (he’s currently tied to “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively), Gosling likes his women more mature and worldly — in other words, older. It seems he’s finally gotten over his former long-term beau, 32-year-old Rachel McAdams, by falling for 37-year-old Eva Mendes. Here are the hot Hollywood couples who remind us why we liked “The Graduate” so much. Read more… Keep reading »
One of the great challenges for women turning 30 is the feeling of being somewhat accomplished but still not feeling like it’s enough. And this feeling of “enough” is hard for me to express but in my opinion may be the single most important thing to understanding women over 30. “Enough” is not quantifiable by money, degrees, shoe collections, or babies (in no particular order) — it’s something bigger.
Let me use a football metaphor to explain: Reaching 30 for women is like a diehard fan reaching the end of the second quarter at a really good football game. You can stay and double down for the second half, or you can go home at half time. For women, you start to see two clear paths: one to career and one to family. Only when I turned 30, and my professional and personal life started to really develop, did I give much thought to how exactly I was going to do it all: have a job, a husband, children, and my sanity. I don’t have an answer for that, but I think I’m like most women in that I didn’t really think about the specifics until I turned 30.
You think she’s hot, but instead of complimenting her, you throw in a light joke about what she’s wearing. You’re not afraid to use the Cocky & Funny strategy with women, because it usually works. That’s if you pay attention to what well-known dating coach David DeAngelo has to say on the topic. But if you go off on a tangent and misinterpret what being cocky is all about, it could totally backfire on you.
You know how it goes: You met a smoking hot girl you really like. The chemistry was off the charts (well, according to you), she seemed totally into you too when she gave you her digits, you called her to go out sometime, and then she never returned your call. Was it the broccoli in your teeth? Did you have stinky pits? It could be one of those reasons, but chances are it’s something a little less forgiving. So why didn’t she call you back? Keep reading »
Commitment seems like a great idea. You make your relationship more official and share your life with someone who’s not going to leave by the time morning arrives. But with any big idea, there are pros and cons attached to it. With commitment comes benefits, yes, but there’re also risks. It’ll do you good to think of what you stand to lose before you take the leap.
