An Early Valentines GIFT for YOU!

dating Jan 27, 2023

As we head toward February, the month of LOVE, are you shopping for a Man… like shopping for a car?

Recently I was thinking about replacing my Lexus, with my dream car.

I went to a couple of my favorite dealerships: Lexus and Mercedes.

I knew exactly what I wanted for my dream car. It’s a short list:

A 4-seat hybrid convertible, with air and automatic, and a light-colored interior.

While I was at the dealerships, it occurred to me that shopping for a car is a lot like “shopping” for a man.

Some women have told me they make a list of what they want in a man.

The theory is that a list will activate the Law of Attraction and help them manifest what they want.

There is some wisdom in this because it never hurts to get clear about what you want.

You can search online at the “dealerships.”

Maybe you want something hot and sexy, or perhaps a sportier model?

Maybe it’s the power that turns you on, or perhaps reliability is high on your list.

But it...

I could have been with the "Love of My Life!"

dating love relationships Oct 31, 2022

I could have been with the “Love of My Life!”

That’s what a friend sadly said to me, after reading our book: Gorillas Make Great Lovers!

First, I should tell you that my friend is a very successful businesswoman. 

She has published several books and speaks at events all around the world.

So, I asked, “What happened?”

“Well,” she responded, “when I read your book and took the Quiz, I realized that my boyfriend was the Gorilla type.”

I was confused and said, “That’s good, isn’t it? I mean, my favorite type of men are the Gorillas.”

“Yes, he was good. We had a lot of fun together and all my friends liked him.”

“Well, so what went wrong?” I asked.

“I really loved him, and I knew he was smart, so I was sure he could move up the corporate ladder if he’d just apply himself.

But he kept being resistant and saying he was comfortable as he was.

I thought he was just being...

You Don't NEED a Man... But Maybe You Want One

dating personal growth May 22, 2022

You don’t NEED a man…but maybe, you might… want one?
You’ve worked hard and built a successful career.
You’ve created financial security.
You’re independent and self-sufficient.
And you did it on your own.
You certainly don’t need a man!

You’ve tried the relationship thing before, and it was a hot mess.
You’ve found it’s much easier to build a successful career,
than to create a satisfying and healthy relationship.
In fact, it was downright painful!
So, you had the good sense to walk away!

And yet, late at night,
after a TV dinner alone,
when there’s nothing on Netflix,
have you started to wonder…
“is that all there is?”

You’re tired of going to events, or even just out to dinner, alone.
You’re probably sick of people asking, “why isn’t a great catch like you married?”
It would be handy if you could find a good companion.
Someone to talk over the day with.

The Man Your Mom Warned You About

dating personal growth Dec 01, 2021

I’m seventy-five years old, still dealing with a demon or two from the past, but basically pretty well back on the rails these days. 

There was a time in my past however, when things were seriously out of balance. I was angry, focused on my own needs, and determined to get what I wanted, whether or not it was at someone else’s expense, and most frequently it was at a woman’s expense. 

Growing up at my house was a prolonged exercise in emotional abuse. It was a painful, long-term, mess. Leaving home, I was angry, I was emotionally isolated, and I trusted absolutely no-one. 

 The motivation to isolate myself emotionally was powered by the rage I carried. Honestly, I wasn’t even aware of the depth of my anger. (It was years later I realized my anger was actually a disguised expression of the grief I experienced over the love I wanted, but never got from my dad.) 

It was a deeply unhappy period in my life. 

Sex, human physical...

Looking for Love (in all the Wrong Places?)

dating love relationships Oct 29, 2020

At age 21 I got married, with stars in my eyes.

I was excited about the whole idea of marriage and commitment.

I was finally going to have the fulfillment of all my romantic dreams.

From the fancy wedding dress to the white picket fence.

I was really looking forward to a life of love and kisses, with great sex.

I was ready and willing to be a perfect wife and homemaker.

And Lord knows I tried.

But I certainly wasn’t perfect…and neither was he.

So, it didn’t work.

We were not happy with each other.

We didn’t know how to resolve issues, so we just swept them under the rug.

They built up to a big mess, that we tried to avoid.

The kisses and sex were lukewarm at best.

We tried therapists, self-help books, friend’s advice, everything we could think of.

After 20 years we gave up.


I was a single Mom for 4 years.

I was committed to figuring out how to “do love right.”

I did personal growth programs. Read lots more self-help books.

And went...
