What If Dating is Dead For Women Professionals?

What If Dating is Dead For Women Professionals?

by Max Wright

The advent of speed dating and match making services shows how tired we are of trying to find a soul mate by dating. Busy women who are invested in a rewarding professional career are particularly frustrated with the waste of time and effort associated with the “cast a wide net” approach to dating. I finally met my soul mate and got married when I ditched dating for the worn-out thing it is and pursued a different course.

Stop looking for quality mates in low quality places. The night life and bar scene isn’t the place to find the man of your dreams who wants to have a loving, long term relationship. Look in places where quality people invest their time. Do you like athletics? Start getting involved with running, cycling, swimming, or tennis clubs to name a few. Are you religious? Start going to church and looking for great men (that’s where I found my beautiful wife 13 years ago).

You’re likely to find a man who shares your interests if you do this, and it will be EASY to find common ground, you’ll start by doing what you both enjoy then let it naturally branch out to other areas of life. I met my wife at church and we started running together – 13 years later we’re still going to church together but now we play tennis or bike (kids and running injuries made us shift gears) but we’re still active together.

I was deliberate with my relationship. It may sound old fashioned but I started the relationship because I wanted to find an amazing wife, not have fun with a girlfriend. I pursued my wife to see if she was a good fit for me and vice-versa. It took us six months to answer that question and get married. Know what you must have in a relationship and what you can’t tolerate in a relationship. If you know this before you get involved, it will make it easy to determine if it is a good fit. Do not waste your time in relationships that are not good fits – it’s nearly impossible to change people, people change on their own. Love them or leave them for who they are, not for who you want them to be.

Respect yourself enough to save your love for your future husband. Don’t give away your physical affection to men who don’t love you enough to marry you. Getting physical will blur your judgment and his, and you won’t be able to make a good decision. You’ll be able to grow your physical relationship just fine after you’re married. Don’t worry, you can work through any issues if you are committed and in a loving relationship.

I hope your you are able to see some good first date tips based on what we’ve talked about. Remember, whatever you do, don’t be boring on a first date!

Spending More Time with Your Family – 5 Tips Even the Busiest People Can Use

Spending More Time with Your Family – 5 Tips Even the Busiest People Can Use

- by Tony Mase

In between work, chores, carpools, and PTA meetings, how
often do you tell yourself you need to spend more time with
your family? After all, your kids are getting older by the

If you want to make sure you don't miss out on their entire
childhood, follow these 5 tips. By incorporating these
simple things into your routine, even the busiest people can
spend more time with their families!

1. Eat dinner at the table.

Shut off the TV, put your cell phone on "silent", get off
the couch, and have a good ol' sit-down dinner with the
family. After all, you're already taking the time to prepare
a meal... you might as well eat together!

You may have to start off making family dinners a rule,
since your kids may initially be unwilling to give up their
TV or phone time. But once everyone gets into the swing of
things, it's really a very easy thing to implement.

Eating with your family at the dinner table gives you a
great chance to hear about everyone's day. You'll be amazed
at how much more you and your kids find out about each
others' lives!

2. Start a weekly "family day".

If it seems like you and the kids are on the go - separately
- all weekend, pick a day and make it "family day". That
way, you can go out and do something as a family. And, it
doesn't have to be expensive. A simple stroll through the
park or a swim at the beach can be a great - and cheap - way
to spend some quality family time together.

Shining flower with light of moon

Again, it might be tough at first to wrangle your kids away
from their friends for an entire day, but it won't take long
for them to really appreciate it. And, these are the kinds
of days your kids are going to remember fondly when they're
all grown up with families of their own!

3. Make time for one-on-one time.

If you have more than one child, it can be tough to give
each one of them the personal attention they need. However,
it's a vital part of their upbringing. No matter what kind
of scheduling issues you're facing, make it a point to spend
some one-on-one time with each one of your children every
day. Even if it's only a few minutes, it's something that
can make your child feel more valued and more loved - which
can lead to things like better behavior and better grades.

4. Have weekly family meetings.

Pick a day that works for everyone and schedule a family
meeting. That way, everyone has a chance to air any
grievances, talk about something that's bothering them, or
suggest any changes they'd like to see made.

Family meetings don't have to be very long. Even during a
short meeting, you can improve your family's communication
skills and work out issues together as a team.

5. Schedule cleaning time.

No one likes to hang out and clean, but it's something that
has to be done. And, like preparing the dinners, you're
already spending time cleaning - but if you can tackle all
of the cleaning as a family, it'll get done faster and
you'll really feel like a team. Plus, it gives you a
valuable opportunity to teach your kids about responsibility
and the satisfaction of a job well done.

It doesn't take much to incorporate these changes into your
life... Go out and start today!

Are You Overlooking Your Family? The Question Every Parent Needs to Ask

Are You Overlooking Your Family? The Question Every Busy Parent Needs to Ask

– by Tony Mase © Tony Mase – All Rights Reserved http://www.tonymasesinnercircle.com ========================================================

How much quality time do you spend with your family? You may

live with them, but with work, school, and all of your other

responsibilities, your family may actually be falling by the


Sadly, family members are the ones we often neglect when things

get busy or stressful. That’s why spending more time with family

has even become one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions!

If you made that promise to yourself this year, are you living up to it?

Many people aren’t. You know how tough it can be, trying to juggle

quality time with long hours, tiring commutes, and never-ending

work projects. Before you know it, the day is done and you haven’t

said so much as a “how was your day?” to anyone you love!

People who work from home aren’t immune from these problems,

either. Sure, you might be a few feet away from your kids – but the

phone is ringing, emails are piling up, and clients are waiting.

Are You Overlooking Your Family? The Question Every Busy Parent Needs to Ask

Are You Overlooking Your Family? The Question Every Busy
Parent Needs to Ask

Chances are, you simply try to “occupy” your kids with other things

while you try to be productive. And, that desire to “occupy” your kids

only gets bigger when they go off to school. Soon, spring break and

school holidays go from being an opportunity for quality time – to a

burden, where you simply need to keep everyone busy while you work.

Unfortunately, it can all take a toll on your kids. Have you ever heard

your kids say, “Mom, why don’t you play with us anymore?” or “Dad,

how come you’re never home for dinner anymore?” Even if they’re not

saying it, they might be thinking it. And your kids may be more than

just lonely. Many kids act out as a way to grab Mom and Dad’s attention.

To some kids, negative attention is better than no attention. If your child

starts to misbehave, you’ll have no choice but to devote time to them.

If your kids have started exhibiting behavioral problems, ask yourself

if it’s simply a case of them feeling overlooked. So, how can you make

sure to keep your family at the top of the priority list? Remember that

your kids will only be kids for a short period of time – a time that many

parents say goes way too fast. Make a conscious effort to take in every

precious moment that you can. And, remind yourself that no matter how

stressful your job is, it’s not more important than your family. If you’re

not spending enough time with your family, now is the time to make a

change – before it’s too late!

How To Make Your Children Accept Your Separation

How To Make Your Children Accept Your Separation

by Samantha Knowles

Don’t buy gifts to cover your guilt: Two years ago, I was on a business trip that needed to be extended from three days to four. The timing was horrible–it meant that I would have to miss my daughter’s parent-teacher conference for the second time that year.

In the hotel room that night, all alone, I felt frustrated with my job for keeping me away from my family, sad that I was letting down my daughter, and guilty for not being a “perfect” mom. When I finally arrived at the airport the next day, I was in a rush to get home to at least check in and hear how the conferences went, but no luck–my flight was delayed.

In my last-ditch attempt to make it up to my daughter, I started purchasing overpriced airport toys and candy. A few hours and fifty dollars later, I finally got home and gave Emily these “gifts.” She liked them–of course, every child likes to receive presents–but it didn’t make up for the fact that I had missed her conference.


It also reinforced the wrong message: that I had done something wrong when, in fact, I hadn’t done anything wrong at all. This goes for goodbyes, too. Use words, not bribes, to encourage cooperation.

I’ve seen kids bribed with candy, toys, fast food meals, anything if they would just stop crying at the morning goodbye. It doesn’t work. In fact, it increases anxiety by turning the goodbye routine into a daily test, and even worse – an expectation.

Life is full of obstacles and challenges. Be happy when things flow in your favor, but teach your children to know and expect that sometimes they won’t.

Get into a routine: Another tip on accepting separation is acknowledging that the source of your child’s emotions is often more centered on transitioning to something new and less about the actual separation itself. It isn’t that they do not miss you (they do), it’s just that your absence forces them to make a change.

 How To Make Your Children Accept Your Separation

How To Make Your Children Accept Your Separation

Parker has problems transitioning in all kinds of situations, not just daycare drop-off. When he is watching his favorite television show, and it is time to go somewhere, like a birthday party, he cries. When it is time to leave the birthday party, he cries. It isn’t that he doesn’t want to do the new activity; it is just that he can’t see beyond his present moment.

Parker is a child that requires routine. He needs to get up at the same time, eat the same breakfast, and watch his favorite television show–all in the same order. He has only a handful of superhero shirts he will agree to wear. If I try to change any of these things, we always have some form of emotional outburst.

Because he thrives and depends on routine, I do my very best to keep it the same. So, on school days, we get up at the same time, have the same breakfast, and get dressed quickly. Then as a reward, we usually watch a few minutes of his favorite cartoon.

This difficulty in transitioning through change also applies to my older children. Every Monday morning, Emily seems to have a cough or a headache. I know that part of her aversion to beginning the Monday school routine is part acting, but more than anything it’s her reluctance to move through the change from the weekend back to the weekday.

Now that I understand her challenge with change, I help her. I usually play along and tell her to get dressed and let’s just “try school for the morning.” We have an agreement that if she is still not feeling well after the first few school periods, then I will come and pick her up. Sure enough, once Emily gets to school I almost never hear from her.

Children crave structure even though they don’t think they do. By establishing morning and evening routines you can help your children through many transitions: from home to school, from school to home, and from home to bedtime.

Love Poem

We shared love

We shared tears

We sailed together through fire and storm

We used to find the sun behind every cloud

As I look back

I start to wonder

Was it me or was it you

Something changed

We did not see

We did not feel like we used to do

Noone to blame

The feelings of sorrow and shame

Noone could see

What was happening to you and me

Couples Who Attend Therapy Together, Stay Together

Couples Who Attend Therapy Together, Stay Together

by Rachel Wood

Today’s society is fast-paced and consistently on the go. People are busy running errands and working from sun up to sun down, leaving little to no time for their significant other.

The crazy lives that so many people live demand a lot out of them. Between work, children and social lives, finding time to spend a quality, relaxed evening with loved ones is becoming increasingly more difficult. However, those who regularly attend couple therapy sessions are likely better able to balance their crazy lives.



Families in Salt Lake City often find themselves running from soccer practice immediately to piano lessons while stopping at the store to get things for dinner. With so much going on, while dad or mom is away at work all day, it’s no wonder many couples find themselves falling asleep on the couch while watching the evening news, instead of utilizing that time to enjoy each others company.

It’s not just any couple that can benefit from attending therapy; it’s all of them. Most relationships thrive when each person takes time out of their day to do even the small stuff, like a goodnight phone call or a good morning kiss. If more couples listened to a therapist, they would find that although they may not see their significant other as much as they’d like, they could still feel connected.

It’s no surprise that many young couples in Salt Lake City live these busy lifestyles and often begin to feel a disconnect from their partner.

Simply by attending therapy as a couple, these relationships could benefit greatly and save themselves from becoming completely disconnected.

You dont need my heart


Even if a couple is seemingly perfect, a therapy session is always a good idea. It’s a great place to express any feelings that one may have trouble expressing. It’s also a great way to get to know each other better. A therapist is able to help people emotionally, and many couples find that after attending a therapy session, they feel much more connected than before.

Date night doesn’t always have to be a night out in Salt Lake City. Quality time can be spent together at home, curled up watching a romantic movie at the end of a long and busy day.

Many couples have found that even connecting in the simplest of ways, such as a quick phone call on lunch or a goodbye kiss while rushing out the door, makes a large difference in their lives.

The world is becoming increasingly more fast-paced, but nearly every couple in Salt Lake City and places alike have found that they feel more connected to their partner after attending a few therapy sessions.

Keep Your Man Today and Tomorrow

Keep Your Man Today and Tomorrow

by Samantha Knowles

We have all heard about books, ebooks, audio programs- all showing you HOW to get a man to fall in love with you.

They offer how to do it in minutes, weeks, and months. The truth is…none of the tactics really work, if they did everyone would be in committed and passionate relationships.


Get your timing right: To start off with, let’s get rid of that common misconception that men don’t want to fall in love; we do. The problem is that we just don’t always want to do it at the same time women do. Age and maturity are key factors here, so if a man doesn’t seem like he’s out for more than just a good time, cut your losses and realize that he’s just not ready for love yet.

Communication: Which brings me to the next point: texting. It’s a great way to keep in touch nowadays and is far from overbearing. It gives ladies a slight advantage because you can just pique a guy’s interest every now and then without seeming like you’re coming on too strong. A random text saying something like, “Was just thinking about that time we…” or “Hey, do you remember what a laugh we had when…” Then, you can take it from there, at your own pace.

Keep Your Man Today And Tomorrow

Bring out your inner cook: Now we turn from modern advice to old school: What they said about a man’s stomach being the way to his heart is true. The key here is being seen as the “cool, fun” woman who comes up with unique things to do out of the blue, but isn’t expecting something afterwards. Believe me; creating a little air of intrigue about you isn’t a bad thing. Leaving the guy wondering, “Why did she invite me to this and then not call me for a few weeks and then all of a sudden invite me to another thing” is good.


Be Yourself: This is the most important tip of all. Most importantly, be uniquely yourself. What do you like to do? Get your man to be intrigued in what also interests you. You can share it together. Enjoy swimming? Take him to do this with you. Enjoy running, go for a run together. It is wonderful to listen to someone discussing their dreams, but it is much better to see someone doing the things that make them happy in a passionate way. Even better- doing them together.

How Couples Psychologists Help Save A Marriage

How Couples Psychologists Help Save A Marriage

by Graham Brightwell

Professional couples psychologists can help both of you in several ways:

1. Couples psychologists can help you identify your real needs and what each of you really wants from the marriage or from your spouse.

2. Couples psychologists can help you identify behaviours both in yourself and in your spouse that cause unhappiness or dissatisfaction in the marriage.


3. Couples psychologists can help you learn and practice new behaviours that bring both of you closer to each other.

4. Couples psychologists help you get a clear idea on you and your partner’s communication patterns and how those help or hurt the marriage.

Marriage counselling can help both of you specify your goals (individually and as partners) and focus on what both of you truly want, (individually and as a couple). If one of you isn’t content and happy simply because your partner isn’t being what you need or want in the marriage, you aren’t taking responsibility for your own happiness. If your happiness depends on someone else, basically you lose control over your life. The following are some of the things couples psychologists can help you with.


Marriage counselling helps you communicate your needs more effectively and in a less emotional manner. When you’re clear about what you really want and what you’re willing to do and compromise, you do not have to whine, scream, nag, pout, or be in bitter silence. You would be able to express what you need clearly, as well as ask what you want. Then your spouse can hear you and respond in a clear, direct, and calm way.

How Couples Psychologists Help Save A Marriage


Marriage counselling can help you pin point the behaviours that trigger a negative feeling. Looking for long-held beliefs regarding your relationship, roles, family, and yourself could help unravel beliefs and thoughts that are no longer helpful for you. When you’re discovered all of those beliefs, they could be changed just, so they are more powerful and effective for your current situation.


By studying your own beliefs, you’ll find out where they come from, and you could consciously select to change or keep those beliefs. Then you would be able to take the reins of your life and redirect yourself as well as your relationship towards something that works best for both of you. Rekindling the reasons why you’re together and appreciating the things your spouse does well are some of the vital aspects couples psychologists focus on. It’s way easier to agree to make changes if you feel that the things you’re already doing are noticed and appreciated by your partner.


Another benefit couples psychologists can provide is that you’ll have an unbiased person listening and observing your communication patterns as well as your needs and wants, and closely watching the manner you come across to your partner. This will help because you’ll have an outside view and opinion that may be you had not thought of before. It can take you out of a pattern that probably you have not recognized before.

Is Conflict Healthy in Marriage?

Is Conflict Healthy in Marriage?

by Keishia Lee Louis

Today my three-year-old daughter told my husband that she wants to be married. When he asked her why, she replied, “Because you get to be nice to one another.”

Are you nice to your partner? Or do you find yourself involved in heated competition, endless cycles of discord, and/or tiresome critical thinking?

According to Diane Sollee, founder of the Coalition for Marriage, Family and Couples Education, LLC (CMFCE), “Every happy, successful couple has approximately ten areas of ‘incompatibility’ or disagreement that they will never resolve.” In other words, it’s possible to disagree with your spouse and still have a fulfilling relationship. It’s all in how you do it.


Because you and your spouse may have ten issues that you will not be able to agree upon at any given time, how will you be able to resolve these conflicts and maintain a happy medium in your household?

First and foremost don’t avoid or side step the concerns that each of you have. Conflict in marriage is not an “if,” but rather a “when.” And according to Sollee, avoidance is one of the key factors determining a couple’s separation and divorce. Make sure you voice your opinions, but do it with the understanding that you don’t need to change your spouse. Focus, rather, on the way you present yourself in times of conflict.

 Is Conflict Healthy In Marriage?

Second, welcome and embrace change. While you have committed to “love until death,” you haven’t promised to stay the same through the course of your life. Everyone is learning and growing at different paces and in different places. Don’t let this growth, change the positive ways you act towards your husband or wife.

Next, understand that even if you were to divorce and remarry, you would still have to deal with the shortcomings of your new partner and they would have to deal with yours. You’d just have a new set of disagreements. Nobody’s perfect. Realizing this fact and internalizing it, will give you a better grip on how to cope with the irreconcilable differences you have in your current marriage.

Finally, don’t let your disagreements contaminate the rest of your relationship. Choose to exhibit positive behaviors towards your spouse. Deciding to become more affectionate or offering encouraging words on a regular basis can go a long way. It will get you through some tough times. Often partners eventually mirror each other’s behavior inside and outside of their disagreements.

Don’t let conflict put a sour taste in your relationship. If you want to have a healthy and happy marriage, your goal can be to agree with the understanding that disagreeing is a part of life.
