Nagging Gets You NOWHERE!

​One of my favorite sections in my book "A Woman's Guide to Understanding Men: Dating Secrets Most Women Don't Know," is the chapter on nagging. So many women nag men (and everyone else in their lives) thinking they are helping the person. They think they are offering good advice. But this often backfires.  Men don't want to hear all the things they are doing wrong. This kind of behavior usually emasculates a man and makes him feel like you're his mother or his boss. Here's an excerpt from my book, which goes more into this important topic:  "Appreciate your man for who he is. N ..read more

Counting Down to #1 #5 Don't be a Debbie Downer Try to be happy and upbeat. Guys don't want to be with complainers. Things not to write: "My ex was a jerk, and I'm hoping you're not." OR "Looking to avoid players and commitment phobes." OR "I won't put up with a man's crap."  #4 Don't Try Too Hard Guys can tell when you try too hard, and it appears desperate. Better to be the cool and confident girl. So, don't write things like: "Your mother and kids will love me." OR "I'm the best cook in town, even my ex says that."  Avoid trying too hard in other ways. For example, do ..read more

Control Your Mind, Change Your Life

Controlling your mind will help keep you in control of your life. ​Henry Ford was one of many successful people who knew this: "If you think you can do a thing, or you think you can't do a thing, you're right." What does this have to do with dating?  If you think you will never have luck online dating, you won't. If you think you will always be with abusive men or players, you will. If you think you will find Mr. Right, you will!  This is why I have included a spiritual element to my dating book. While my book delves into dating tips and strategies, and has advice on groomi ..read more

My Modern Courtship Strategies Aren't Passive

Letting the man take the lead in a relationship is hard for some modern women who are used to being aggressive in their careers and in every other way. One thing you need to understand is that letting the man take the lead doesn't mean you're a doormat, nor does it mean you're passive. You're easy to be with but you stand up for yourself if something is off. You work on your inner game and your outer game. Work out. Get blowouts, manicures, pedicures, wax your eyebrows and everywhere else that needs it. Get lash extensions. Stay up on the latest fashions, and always look your absolute be ..read more

Getting Back Out on the Dating Scene

Some daters are rusty, worriedly asking me how to quell their nerves when they get back out there and date. Here are some suggestions to make the dating process easier:  Fake it until you make it. Confidence is sexy. If you are feeling unconfident, don't let it show. Pretend you are an actress who just flew in from Hollywood for the date. If you don't let your date see you sweat, your date probably won't notice. Realize the person you are dating is probably just as rusty as you are. Feel compassion for them. You'll find that while you're feeling compassion for some ..read more

Radio hosts Chaz & AJ of 99.1 WPLR, the Howard Sterns of Connecticut, gave me a hard time this week about some advice I give in my book: A Woman's Guide to Understanding Men: Dating Secrets Most Women Don't Know. In the book, I teach women to weed out time wasters extremely fast, and one of the big ways is to wait 12 consecutive Saturday night dates to sleep with a man. Chaz & AJ went crazy over that bit of advice, telling me there's no way a guy will wait that long. However, a man who really likes you will wait. (And I think Chaz & AJ secretly agree with me).  I have to sa ..read more

Do Men Read Relationship Books?

Now that I've written a dating book for women, friends are suggesting that I write a book for men. But I always say to them, "Men don't read relationship books." I still believe there's truth in that statement. Though something unexpected happened when I published my dating book "A Woman's Guide to Understanding Men: Dating Secrets Most Women Don't Know."  Dads seem to be loving it. A few former male colleagues, who have teenage daughters, have reached out to me and said they heard my radio interview this past week—where I told women to take it slow with men and wait at least 12 Satu ..read more

Have Trouble Receiving from Men?

If you have trouble receiving from a man—whether it’s letting him pay for dinner, accepting his love, or in other ways—you likely aren't in the relationship you deserve. If you don’t respect the differences between men and women, and allow a man to court you,  a guy won’t insist on courting you. And when this happens, he’ll start treating you in a casual manner, more like an afterthought. This isn't about being mean or nasty, or demanding a man treat you a certain way. You have high standards, but you behave in a feminine way, so a man wants to give to you. He wants to protect you ..read more

Think Short and Sweet in Online Dating Think short and sweet in your online dating encounters.  Here's an example: Bad Tinder Example:  Still single at 32, just like that hot mess Bridget Jones, hoping to take a stab at online dating in case my Mr. Darcy shows up.  Improved Tinder Example in pink below: Chicago-based Renée Zellweger look-alike who plays pickleball, works out, and travels. I’m a lover of spy novels, and The Matrix is my all-time favorite movie.  While the Bad Tinder Example is witty, it puts her down. The Improved Tinder Example is physically descriptiv ..read more

Cuomosexuals No More

Be Careful What You Wish For Be careful what you wish for. Sometimes that unattainable man - who you think would be perfect for you - is not your Mr. Right. Did anyone have a crush on Governor Cuomo during the height of the pandemic, when he was leading news conferences daily? I know of many women who did. Regardless of political party, they were calling themselves Cuomosexuals. They loved how in command he was of the situation. They loved his sense of humor and jokes. His take charge personality was a turn on. He seemed like a stand-up sensitive guy who respected women and would never make a ..read more
