Why it’s OK for women to say “I love you” first

At brunch this weekend, one of my girlfriends was beside herself because her man hadn’t said he loved her yet. She’s normally bright and really full of life, but she was limp and sad throughout the entire brunch. I assumed that she told him that she loved him and he hadn’t said it back, even after she gave him time. And I was really sad for her.

Masters of the Illusion

[caption id="attachment_17994" align="alignright" width="300"] Masters of illusion and marketing[/caption]Sometimes I think, when I'm on an online dating site, that women are either: A – masters of illusion, or B - understand marketing really well. As I peruse through the pictures, I think the majority of women over the age of 40 are masters of taking angle picture shots. I see pictures from above, I see pictures from the side, I see pictures from a 90 degree angle. Every single picture I see of a woman over the age of 40 is from an angle. It is never face on. If it is face on, it's always from a distance. Read more
