“David, how do I get him to like me?”
I can’t tell you how many times women email this question, and it breaks my heart. You meet a guy. You think he’s great. He has the best resume you’ve seen in a while. He’s good looking, he has a good job, and he’s caring, but no matter what you do, you feel you can’t get him to like you.
Listen to the original question again…
“How do I get a man to like me?”
Do you realize how weak that question is? What’s wrong with you? Do you really need to get someone to like you? Are you not likeable the way you are? Aren’t you an amazing, beautiful woman? Read more
If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming a Matchmaker
or working in the Love Biz, I say—go for it! The world is full of singles looking for love, and if you are someone who has it in your heart to help bring them together, then follow that dream to the fullest.
I have coached hundreds of matchmakers at the Matchmaking Institute
, and the first step I always take when working with them is to pinpoint each individual’s personal style. By helping a matchmaker look at their strengths, weaknesses, and personality traits, we are able to work together to discover what style matchmaker they would be most successful as.
Yes—there are different styles of matchmaking!
Just like a doctor, accountant, or personal trainer has a specialty or preferred method, every matchmaker has a match style.
A matchmaker’s specific style is what sets them apart from other matchmakers, and makes them appealing to a specific set of clientele. Read more
When was the last time you initiated sex?
If you had to think about it for longer than 5 seconds it’s probably been awhile.
Well, here’s some news: the biggest complaint I hear from men is that their girlfriend or wife doesn’t initiate sex enough, or at all.
It’s not entirely your fault. Many women are taught from a young age to have the guy take the lead, pay for the date, plan the date, open all the doors, and make the first phone call. He probably even asked you out on the first date. It would follow then that many women don’t feel it’s acceptable to initiate sex. Ever. Read more
Does this scenario sound familiar to you?
You met a guy. Seems like a great guy. You get to know each other a bit. You start having sex. Things are going really, really well. You don’t want to get too excited but you start to feel like you’ve met someone special.
Then, all the sudden, he sits you down and starts giving you that dreadful speech. You know what’s coming but you don’t want to believe it. “I think you're great…but
I see you more as a friend
,” he says. He’s pulled away, and now you’re in the friend zone. Read more
September always feels like such a wonderful month to me.
It ushers in a change of season from summer to autumn, retailers begin delivering fall clothing and for me personally, it signifies another birthday that is rapidly on it’s way.
Today I celebrate my 37th
Though it’s not as significant its predecessors sixteen, twenty-one or even thirty, it still resonates with just as much excitement as the rest.
You see to me, birthdays are not about age or wrinkles, they are more about wisdom and how one has grown.
For as long as I can remember, I usually spend the day before my birthday looking back and reflecting on what I have learned and how I can better myself as I go forward. In that continued tradition, I have looked no further than my own backyard to set up camp.
Today I am on the rooftop of the London Hotel, arguably one of the best views in the city. At sunset, this easily becomes one of the most romantic places in West Hollywood. Definitely remember this as a perfect date spot!
In order to get into the writing mood, I need two things: a good scenic view and a cocktail. Today, courtesy of the London, I am sipping on a “Ginger Blossom” while I take in a near perfect 75-degree sunset.
Juices are now flowing. Read more
