Women Are from Venus, Men Are from Hunger

Excerpted from Life is Not a Stress Rehearsal: Bringing Yesterday's Sane Wisdom Into Today's Insane World By Loretta Laroche Men Don't Ask for Directions Of course not. If a man stops to ask for directions, the animal he's stalking will kill him. Not to mention that it is a clear indication that he is out of control and needs help. It literally forces him to make the admission, perhaps to another male, that "I'm lost." What could be farther from

Why Love Seems So Elusive

Excerpted from Women Men Love, Women Men Leave: What Makes Men Want to Commit? By Connell Cowan, Dr. Melvyn Kinder For so many women today, men are confusing, even incomprehensible.

Who Can Understand a Woman?

Excerpted from Light Her Fire: How to Ignite Passion, Joy and Excitement in the Woman You Love By Ellen Kreidman, Ph.D Ask a man what the perfect woman would be like, and often he will say, "I want her to be a lady during the day and a mistress at night."

Who Are These Guys?

Excerpted from Let's Face It, Men Are $$#%$: What Women Can Do About It By Joseph Rock, Psy.D., Barry L. Duncan, Psy.D. Men can't commit. Men hate women. Men can't communicate. Men "don't get it."

Men are doing lots of things that make it hard for women to relate to and understand t

Keith Miller At the very foundation of human experience there rages a silent hidden battle for self-esteem, for the unique identity and soul of each individual.
