If you’re divorced like me, you have some painful memories of marriage. But do you have any regrets? What would you do differently in your marriage (or marriages) looking back? Do you regret the divorce itself? I thought of this question after reading an article by one of our columnists, divorce attorney Dennis A. Fuller, […]
Whose lie – yours or your spouse’s – crushes your dream of happily ever after? With the exception of abuse, I encourage you not to walk away from a relationship with someone that’s 95 percent of everything you could want – because it can, and sometimes does, get a whole lot worse. Don’t get me […]
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.

Occasionally, I see articles on the health benefits of being married. I roll my eyes. Really? Stories such as this one in Time say studies prove married people are healthier.
Breaking up with someone is serious. Divorcing is even more serious. It’s difficult to minimize the immediate pain of a difficult split. But at some point – maybe weeks, months or years down the road – you have to pull yourself together emotionally and move forward. You should also learn to laugh at your relationship […]
Romantic chemistry between men and women is a mysterious thing. How do you define or predict it? You can’t. You’ve probably had this experience: You go out with two different women. They’re equally attractive. They may even have similar backgrounds and interests. Yet you have an unmistakable chemistry with one and no spark with the […]
It may not surprise you that love is an inexact science. No one has ever been able to prove why two people are a match or predict who might be compatible. However, if you listen to claims by some online dating firms, you’d think they have uncovered the science of attraction. Wrong, say several collegiate […]
