Is the Price of Admission to the Game of Love Too High?

This is the best of all times to be a man.

Sex isn’t the promise of a future partnership. It’s a prize that’s given freely at the beginning of a “who-knows-what” type of interaction with a woman.

Standing in the middle of this sociological shift, I look around my world to see how other women are feeling about this current state of affairs. Are they happy? I’m not. Do they feel powerful? I don’t feel empowered from this position. Is there no way out of this mess?

The High Hopes of Round-Heeled Girls

In theory, a modern woman should be able to sleep with whom she likes, when she likes, without repercussion. Yet, what works in theory often fails in reality. As women continue to embrace (as they should) their sexuality in all forms of its expression, getting to partnership has never been more difficult.

The Irrational Fear of Being Alone

The fear of being alone is terrifying for most people I know.  We’ve been led to believe that having someone is better than having no one. This message runs deep in our social fabric and is the basis of many single’s discontent.

Attached to this myth is the belief that being single mean “unwanted” instead of taking one’s time to choosing wisely.

The fear of being alone is an irrational construct. Alone doesn’t mean “lonely.” Yet, many single’s hate this part of the journey. There’s a […]
