I’ve been dating a woman for about a year. We get along very well and have discussed marriage. However, she has two kids — a 12-year-old boy and 10-year-old […]
I hate that phrase “let’s just be friends.” If you’re really attracted to a woman, you don’t want to be her friend – you want to be more, right? But lately, I’ve concluded I should make friendship with women – not relationships – my goal.
Why should I care if a woman earns more money? I’ve never understood men who feel threatened by a wife or girlfriend who brings home a bigger paycheck.
