  Relevance Info Services, an international publisher of quality information, approached me as an expert in relationship issues with the question if I could evaluate a number of websites that offer methods and tips for saving relationships and prevent a divorce.

Can Attracting Women Be Learned

  I think a fundamental question faced by men in the pursuit of attracting women is: Can attracting women be learned? Is it a result of genetics, of having been gifted with prominent cheekbones, lean muscularity or a sizable organ? Or perhaps having a prominent checkbook and the right surname? Is it about having a naturally outgoing personality, charisma, and sharp wit? Or perhaps possession of influence and personal power? (read more)

“What Is Swag and Why Are Women Attracted to Men That Have It?”

  The Urban Dictionary defines ‘swag’ as “the appearance, style, or the way he or she presents themselves”. So when a woman says a man has swag that usually means he has a great deal of confidence in the way he walks, talks and the way he takes over the space he’s in without even trying.

It's Ok To Tell Him That You Need Him

  Ladies, sometimes we have a hard time letting our partners know how much we really need them, especially independent women. Unfortunately, I must say I am guilty of this. I believe it is a condition that s developed by no fault of our own. When a person, especially a woman, has been independent for so long it’s not in her nature to ask for help when she needs it.

Bridging The Generation Gap

  I remember when I was a kid, we had to use handles on all adult names — no, ifs, ands, or buts about it. We had to call Aunt Yonnie, “Aunt Yonnie” even if she was only seven years older than my oldest brother. We used a handle for all adults whether it was “Mister”, “Miss”, “Uncle” or “Aunt”. We always spoke when we stepped into a room, always said “excuse me” if we needed to say something when adults were talking, and always, always said “please” and “thank you”. (read more)

Urban Suburban Magazine - Relationships - The Roar of A Woman
The Roar of a Woman


Cougar – [koo-ger]; NOUN. An attractive woman (a.k.a. M.I.L.F.) (n.) in her 30’s – 40’s who generally looks much younger and is ‘on the hunt’ for younger men. I don’t like labels. Never have. The idea that a person can be summed up in a word just makes no sense to me. Things are never that easy.
