Dating: Break up disclosure?

5:00 am Apr. 6, 2015

I know a couple who decided to take a break from their exclusive relationship.  The break only lasted 6 months but they dated other people. The guy hooked up with multliple women, including his ex-wife.  When the couple got back together, the girlfriend said she definitely did not want to know about his six months of freedom.  I was surprised because women usually want to know those kinds of things.

Why don’t we court each other?

8:20 am Apr. 1, 2015

Some people believe that single people today don’t really know how to court. Date requests are tweeted. Flirting is done with snapchat. We swipe left or right to determine interest or disinterest.  Well, maybe social media makes us lazy but does that mean courting has to go away?

Remember courting? Picking a date up. Getting ready for a night with someone cool.  Making real plans for spending time together.  The concept

What’s wrong with juggling dates?

7:25 am Mar. 31, 2015

I wonder why some of my guy friends get confused about dating multiple women at the same time.  It seems really obvious that this is something you should only do if you are upfront about it.  They usually resort to some kind of trickery or deceit to juggle dates.  This is why I believe they should try the one woman at a time approach.

I am not totally  opposed to someone

Keeping it sexy

Sean doesn’t know how to ask his girlfriend about why she has let herself go.  It is an awkward conversation that has the potential to really go off the rails.  When they first started seeing each other she would work out with him all the time.  Now she let her gym membership go and stopped running every week.  He thinks this is only the beginning because she doesn’t dress sexy

Ready to settle down?

When Mike met his girlfriend he wasn’t looking for a serious relationship.  Now that they have been together a year, he thinks she is the one.  He is happy with the relationship, he just doesn’t know if he is ready to settle down and get married.  What makes someone realize they are ready to settle down?

After you have played the field for a long time, do you think it is

Everyone has baggage

My friend Greg is a stickler for dating without drama. The first sign of drama and he tends to jump ship.  He had one bad experience with a drama queen once so he is extra cautious not to relive that ordeal.  I think he is a little too cautious, though.  Just because people show some emotion or deals with a crisis doesn’t mean  they have drama.

We all come with a

Date is going downhill, now what?

7:47 am Mar. 20, 2015

Have you ever been on a date that suddenly started to go off the rails?  Perhaps they drank to much liquor or got too boisterous.  The idea of spending another hour with them has become too much to bear.  What do you do?  One of my friends who is a doctor faked an emergency.  I once saw a guy pretend to have a seizure!  There is no easy way to

What is your privacy policy?

7:17 am Mar. 18, 2015

It usually takes time to feel comfortable with sharing personal details with people you date.  I can understand wanting to wait to disclose the heavy stuff.  How long do you wait, though?  I know a friend who found a lot of information about her husband after they were engaged or married.  He said while they were dating, it was basically “need to know” and so he kept things to himself.

I’m

Should you return after disappearing?

8:10 am Mar. 16, 2015

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

Do you think romance is dead?

7:36 am Mar. 13, 2015

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
