Toward a More Permanent Love

Excerpted from Permanent Love; Practical Steps to a Lasting Relationship By Edward E. Ford, Steve Englund Perhaps the strongest, most definitive drive of the human species is the drive toward love. It may also be the most multifaceted, the most talked and written about, and the least understood or fulfilled. Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink, runs the old saw, and the same could be said for love. We live in a society that chokes from overuse of the word l

Being a Cool Catholic

Excerpted from If I'm Waiting on God, Then What Am I Doing in a Christian Chatroom? Confessions of a Do-It-Yourself Single By Kerri Pomarolli Catholics were the coolest when I was growing up. My dad and his whole family are Irish and Italian Catholics. It didn't make me sound zealous or fanatical to say I was Catholic. It was cool and most of my friends went to (and slept through) Mass with their families just like I did. I couldn't stay awake. And when I was awake I sp

A Lifetime of Friends

Excerpted from Comrades: Brothers, Fathers, Heroes, Sons, Pals By Stephen E. Ambrose, Ph.D. Friendships stretch across the horizon-fathers, of course, and sons, as well as wives, career acquaintances of every type, many more. The serendipitous ones come from college, either classmates or students. With them you attend the same classes, read the same books, more or less learn the same things. If you are a male you rush and later join the same fraternity, date the same gi

From Meeting to Marriage

Excerpted from Fine Romance: The Passage of Courtship from Meeting to Marriage By Judith Sills, Ph.D. It starts with "Can I buy you a drink?" It can lead to "Let's buy a house."

You've been envisioning a charming, imaginativ

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 want to be Peter Pan. Men are from Mars. You see it on TV talk shows, you read about it in women's magazines and self-help books, you hear it from your friends.
