Does she always appear cool and confident to you? Or, conversely, do you sometimes feel like she has more than her share of insecurities?
Most women, no matter how they present themselves to the outside world, have a few nagging insecurities — especially when it comes to dating. Indeed, the dating world can be rough, and while men also have their share of insecurities, they tend to stress about very different things. Read more … Keep reading »

At some point in the recent past in North America, dancing started being considered a non-masculine thing to do. Men in other cultures don’t even question whether they should dance or not. We’ve gotten into the bad habit of not even trying to dance. Women hate that. They grew up loving “Flashdance,” “Dirty Dancing,” “Save the Last Dance,” and “Step Up.” Love for the man who keeps the beat is inherent in women. So, it’s time to drop the attitude and refuse to be a walking American stereotype. Junior high students sit on opposite sides of the dance floor because they’re scared of the opposite sex. You want to wake up in bed with the opposite sex? The first step toward that could be a two-step and spin move. So, here’s why real men dance — and you want to be a real man, don’t you?

There’s this guy I know who is confident, sexy and can go all night in the bedroom. But when it comes to actually dating women, he never manages to get past the first-month barrier. Instead of forming solid relationships, he continually gets dumped at the same point in every courtship. When I polled the women he’s recently dated to discover just what the heck this dude was doing wrong, I discovered five pertinent mistakes that he — and so many men in his position — continually make. So, in light of helping men actually have a shot at dating the hot new girl they fancy for more than a nanosecond, here are my top five mistakes guys make early on that scare women away.

It’s not unusual for men and women to be friends. You certainly have female friends, and your girlfriend no doubt has male friends, but if her best friend is a guy, well, that’s a different story.
Whether or not men and women can truly be friends — best friends — has long been a subject of debate, and there’s no way that we’re going to settle that debate here. Suffice it to say, for the purposes of this article, we’re operating under the assumption that heterosexual men and women cannot be best friends; sex always gets in the way.

You got dumped again, huh? We’d say “sorry about your luck” if we thought luck had anything to do with it. To be perfectly honest with you, however, the fact that you keep getting dumped over and over again is probably your fault. Sorry, pal. Now it’s time for some tough love.
We know it’s easier to believe that all women everywhere are crazy: They don’t understand you; they don’t know what they want, etc. But isn’t it infinitely more likely that the cause of your frequent relationship failures is, in fact, you? Might it not be the case that you are the reason why you got dumped — again? Read more … Keep reading »
I’ve had your book for five years now. First, I want to say that every single word in it is true. I’ve seen your coaching work time and again. It’s the best $100 I’ve ever spent. However, I think I may be one of those guys who just can’t be “fixed.” After reading (and almost having memorized) “The System,” I’ve realized how women make their romantic choices. And as much as your book is correct, and I agree with the facts in it, it literally makes me sick to realize that a woman won’t ever love you for who you are, but she will love you just for the way you act. This has made me lose some of my interest in women in general. Call me naive, but I think you can’t absolutely always keep your guard up. So, sooner or later the woman will see you for who you really are (a good guy who genuinely loves her) and she’ll lose her Interest Level in you. Read more … Keep reading »
In most relationships, the time to say goodbye usually arrives at one point or another — unless you intend to walk down the aisle, of course (and even then …). With your ex, you’ve shared memories that will either make you laugh or cry, and it’s time to take your experiences, put them in your back pocket and move on. But somewhere on the road of parting ways couples feel the need to promise to stay friends — which ultimately leads to more broken promises.
So, can you ever be friends with your ex? Does it have to be all-or-nothing? Read more … Keep reading »
Your bed is a logical place to make out. It’s comfortable, it’s private, and if the make-out session leads to sex, there will be no need for awkwardly getting up and walking to another part of the house. It’s no wonder most of us think of our bedrooms when it’s time to get busy. However, if you’ve only ever made out in beds, it’s time to push your boundaries and get frisky out in the world. Here are our top places to make out. Read more … Keep reading »
When you’ve been in a relationship for a while, the passion can ebb for the simple reason that you both know exactly what’s coming. It could be the best and dirtiest sex anyone has ever had, but it doesn’t matter: it’s the same as it was last time. It doesn’t mean you care any less about your partner, or find them any less sexually attractive, it just means you need to break the spell of sameness, and break out of your stale sex routine.
