Last year, my friend Vince met a really nice woman and asked her out.  The first couple of dates went so well that he was excited about getting to know her better.  Then his ex-girlfriend decided she want him back – as exes are wont to do when we meet someone new!  Vince disappeared from the nice lady’s life with no explanation.  He always felt guilty about it and admits

I know some people who think that their partner is romantically challenged.  I’ve also met single people who say that a romantic date or gesture is a foreign concept.  Perhaps romance could use better PR

Background checking your date?

5:00 am Mar. 11, 2015

My friend Lynn met a super nice guy at a work event and they hit off really well.  They have already been on two “amazing dates” and she is feeling optimistic.  You’d think she would be happy and completely relishing in all his new guy shininess. You’d be wrong. She thinks he is TOO good to be true and now she wants to run a background check on him. A

There are a lot of people on the dating scene who know what to say to get what they want.  After a couple of run-ins with this kind, you begin to know how to spot them.  They talk a good game but do they also back up their words with actions?

My friend Sean met a woman and began dating her at the end of last year.  She told him that although they have been intimate before, she doesn’t plan to do it again.

Men and women are wired differently

7:53 am Mar. 2, 2015

The scientists tell us that men and women are wired differently.  How brains, logic, and reasoning don’t always mirror one another.  I think this can be both a blessing and a curse.   In the

Have you failed the support test?

When you are in a relationship, it is only a matter of time before your relationship will be tested in different ways.  One of these tests is the “how do you handle intense situations” tests.  When things get tough, do you get going?  Do you step up and help thorough the crisis?  It begins to show how close you two are and how well you know one another.

Should you live together first?

7:53 am Feb. 23, 2015

I know quite a few couples who decided that living together was the next logical step for them. I believe it will lead to marriage for some of them. I think it could be the beginning of the end for at least two of them. How do you know if living together is the right move for your relationship?
