What women want: 1,000s say it clearly

What women want: 1,000s say it clearly

Austrian neurologist and psychologist Sigmund Freud’s famous statement: “The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is ‘What does a woman want?’” If you ask a woman what she wants, her answer will be entirely dependent on highly individualized circumstances: current wants, needs, mental state, age, family situation, hormonal status, and life experience up to the time the question is asked.

How romantic comedies are a set-up for failure

How romantic comedies are a set-up for failure

I'm a big movie buff. Romantic Comedies, Dramas, Action, Documentaries, SciFi, Mystery… from the junk food of Jay and Silent Bob to the over-the-top action of Kill Bill to the episodic writing of Harry Potter… you'll find me in front of the silver screen allowing it to wash over me… taking me to — wherever. Movies are an escape from reality, and as such the writers and directors demand one thing from the audience: Suspension of Disbelief — the viewer's willingness to sacrifice realism and logic for the sake of their enjoyment of the film. I have no issue with Suspension of Disbelief. But for movies set in the real world, where relationship dynamics play out on-screen… what I'm not capable of is Suspension of Realistic Possibility.

The Saturday Guy (or: How To Kill A Relationship)

When first dating, men usually go above and beyond in their efforts to listen, please, and participate — romantically, physically, and monetarily. However, once they have put in the initial effort and their needs start being met, behavior can change and the effort they’ve been putting in slows. Often, men then start providing the bare minimum required, leaving women wondering what the hell happened, and why he is putting in less and less (as she started putting more into the relationship to compensate). Nowhere is this more glaring than on weekends.
