Do Women Really Want Casual Sex?

Evan Marc Katz, a respected American women’s dating coach, recently posted an article entitled The End of Friends with Benefits.

The main thread of the piece is that women enter into casual sex relationships with men, even though they aren’t entirely comfortable with it, and ultimately seek a more fulfilling relationship.

It’s an interesting read, and his message to women is clear. If you are not happy with casual sex, stop sleeping with men who aren’t your boyfriend. (more…)

Are Expectations Ruining Your Dating Life?

Below is a transcript of the video.

Today, I want to talk about expectations and why they might be making you unhappy.

How to Reframe for Success at Social Events

I got home from the gym today and stepped into the shower and realised my boiler had broken and the water was absolutely freezing. At that point I had two choices.

I could either take that as a negative experience and let that experience ruin my whole day or I could say to myself, “You know what? This is a challenge. I’m going to get into this water no matter how cold it is and see if I can have a shower in the cold.”

What does this have to do with becoming the most interesting person in the room or the most memorable person in the room? (more…)
