What would you tell a woman who thinks loving a man is giving him power over her?

What would you tell a woman who thinks loving a man is giving him power over her?

This question makes me sad. I would tell a woman or man who is afraid of losing all their power to a lover to see an experienced therapist. Here’s the thing, you do give up some power in a relationship.

What is the role of self-criticism in the development of one’s image?

It is really hard to analyze ourselves in any capacity. It's like a doctor operating on themselves or a therapist giving themselves advice. Doctors see other doctors and therapists see other therapists because they need someone skilled and objecting. I routinely ask for feedback professionally and am sometimes surprised by the information I receive. Once, … Continue reading What is the role of self-criticism in the development of one’s image?

How to tell if the person you’re dating is worth the time and effort?

Talk about … Continue reading How to tell if the person you’re dating is worth the time and effort?

Why do you think people feel it is harder to date, and find their soulmate now?

Ok, that's two questions: First, since we have like science and stuff we don't all believe in the idea of ONE soulmate.

But … Continue reading Why do you think people feel it is harder to date, and find their soulmate now?

How to plan the perfect date

To me, as a branding expert, a date is like an event and it has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Set it up ahead of time with a nice ask and a plan. 'Netflix and chill' is great once you're together, but a solid first date will set the tone for the entire experience. … Continue reading How to plan the perfect date
