    5 "Women's Diseases" Your Husband Can Get

    5 "Women's Diseases" Your Husband Can Get
    It’s hard to escape the flagrant gender labeling in our society. Dolls and the color pink are associated with girls, while guys are assigned GI Joes and the “manly” color blue.

    Why He Didn't Ask You On a Second Date

    Why He Didn't Ask You On a Second Date
    In my work with male clients, it still surprises me when I hear the array of horrific dating don’ts that are innocently committed by the most beautiful, educated and seemingly “perfect” women.

    Online Dating: Why and How to Do It

    Online dating. Yes. We said it. And, as it so happens, we've done it, too. The once super taboo, let's-come-up-with-another-story-about-how-we-met form of meeting people is becoming ever more popular in a culture that has less and less free time and fewer real opportunities to be introduced to the right people. We do everything else online — so why not meet ...

    Dating a Coworker: Can It Work for You?

    As many red flags as the office romance waves, it actually can make a lot of sense. Spending a good chunk of our waking hours around the same people naturally allows us to get to know them better and become more comfortable talking, joking, laughing — maybe even flirting.

    Is Social Networking Screwing Up Our Lives?
    If you're like us, being a few double-clicks away from all our cyberfriends is called "being awake." (Battery power withstanding.) Sure, we remember when AOL was just gaining momentum, and we proudly flaunted our newly minted e-mail addresses.

    Your Saving Grace: 7 Steps to the Perfect Apology

    Your Saving Grace: 7 Steps to the Perfect Apology
    I demand an apology! If you have to demand it, is it really worth receiving? Forced apologies are kind of like nice plastic. Shiny, maybe even useful, but ultimately, just trash.

    Can Breaking Up Literally Break Our Hearts?

    Can Breaking Up Literally Break Our Hearts?
    There’s a pivotal moment in an episode of The Simpsons that has always stood out in my memory.
