Help! He’s Terrible At Buying Me Gifts

My husband cannot shop. He’s awful at buying gifts. He tries really hard, but it’s just not his thing. One year, I got socks. Then there were the years where I got electronic gifts—fun for him, but not for me (and no woman really wants a clothes steamer as her big Christmas gift, no matter…

How To Know If A Guy Likes You

I have a basic philosophy for women who are dating that I outline in my book, Why He Disappeared. It's called mirroring. Basically, it means you don't do anything unless he does it first. You don't call. You don't text. You don't make plans. If he doesn't make an effort, that just means he's not…
