    Six Steps To Saying, ‘I’m Sorry’

    Each of us, and by us I’m referring mostly to men, struggle with, “I’m sorry.” There’s something in our Y-chromosome that winces at the idea, like every episode of last season’s Game of Thrones; it clashes with our macho self-image and mucks with our grizzly woodland sensibilities. Real men, so we think, shouldn’t need to […]

    Rewriting The Language Of Love

    I’ve  decided to eliminate a word from my vocabulary; up to the point, at least, I start sounding like a NYC taxi driver.

    Why He Became The Perfect Man – After Your Relationship Ended

    There are generally two ways to get someone’s attention, tickle them with a feather or drop an anvil on their head. The biggest factor in which method to use isn’t our gender, age, or intellect – it’s our heart. Wherever our priorities go so goes our focus. The lower we value a thing the more […]

    Blood is thicker than a marriage certificate

    AS THE QUEEN and I move another step towards our second, and God willing, last marriage, I can’t help but reflect on the couple we’ve become and consider the changes that will inevitably follow after we exchange vows and begin our life as husband and wife. While a bit unromantic, it is irresponsible and foolish […]
