Ten keys to a successful marriage (Mini Summary)
Eventually I stopped talking. Liz Selzer, a consultant with a California-based consultancy called The Mentoring Group, oversees leadership development for more than 30, leaders in the non-profit sector. Change starts on a personal level, yet most people are always screaming for everyone else to change. At home it caused hate, crushed morale, etc…. And trust is the lifeblood of any relationship romantic or otherwise. Give you powers that will change the relationship!

Trust is partly what anchors your relationship and also the building stone. Talk, joke, bring each other out; have small chit-chats over dinners, let your spouse know how your day was. Both pursue engaging and invigorating interests on their own and then share the benefits together. Men were loving women unconditionally? You have to feel it deep within you. Most dating advice for men books are written by pretty boys. From my own experience a reasonable number of professional women have a tough time letting their hair down and when with them seem to feel as if I were attending a 24 hour Martha Stewart festival.
Zachary suggests mentoring relationships follow this cycle: In the preparation phase, the mentor and mentee have a conversation about their expectations, confidentiality, and the boundaries of the relationship.
In the establishing agreements phase, the mentor helps the mentee work out a plan, with clear tasks, for achieving his or her goal. The enabling phase is when the work happens. The mentor supports the mentee in following his or her plan as well as provides feedback and accountability. Closure is a planned ending to the relationship. It's more than lunch. You can also use it as an opportunity to celebrate success. Some specific tasks you can suggest mentoring pairs put in a plan to achieve a goal are journaling, role-playing, or having mentors watch mentees at whatever skill they are trying to improve, such as leading a meeting, and giving their feedback.
The Truth About Mentoring. Make sure everyone in your organization knows that mentoring is going on. Preferably, the leaders of the organization should play a large role in this.
If your program ends with a day of training and doesn't have clear support from important people in your company, the reaction you might get, according to Zachary is, "well here comes another HR initiative. When you find a goal, find a way to measure whether or not your program is making progress toward it. Ask mentors and mentees how their experiences went.
Look at productivity and measurable improvement in the areas that your program was targeting.

And I have no problem meeting or retaining men bc I am aware of this and it shows. But that goes for men too. You can still dress him down without dropping to his level of perceived nastiness. Being nice is not about being nice to other people when they are nice to you. Being nice means nothing if your niceness goes out the door when you get riled.
It means that you not a nice person. Because bfs and husbands will inevitably rile us. And when they do, and your stop using nice words to convey your anger and instead resort to name calling or denigration, they tune you out. Do you want to be heard? Or do you want to be right?
A man will respect the woman with this kind of self-control more than the virago who rages at him. That is pretty harsh! What I discovered was that many of the women who were powerful had only a HS diploma!
They were talented, gifted in their fields… one even opened the first flavored Vodka line of Vodkas! The sad part was that being a single parent did not afford me the opportunity to really learn how to approach or talk to men…. HS to double doctorates… at the end of the day it was about being a woman…. Its just not easy being a woman…. Yes, KE, I agree completely. And there are men and women who refuse to open themselves up to rational thinking no matter the tone of the individual presenting new ideas.
We should dump those people if we are dating them. The friendship would be strained otherwise. To me, the question was a simple one: I had been dating a guy once for about a month… He came over to my house to pick me up for our next date.
I have no doubt some of the qualities that have helped my bank account grow are not so attractive when it comes to the dating world. And no one is more or less deserving of love based on money or success. I am not gay. I want a feminine woman… Not a man. Only true non — insecure men unfortunately can handle strong, self confident and successful women , carreer driven.
I take an equal relationship any day with a man that respects me , understands my needs and satisfy me and i am more than willing to offer the same or more. Its all a matter of chemistry. Im in no circumstances desperate or needy looking and i dont think that any woman should look like that in order to attract their other half. These things are not scheduled or programmed.
If you have chemistry and that click with someone, then it will show and a relationship can be pursued. I just creeped into 6 figures at my last merit review. And only my bf knows how much I make. No other friend knows. Not even my family. Dates are much more fun and less pressure-filled that way, imo. But not wanting to date an SSS woman is often not a sign of insecurity. We can label it that to make us feel better, but that is not reality, unfortunately.
This must be the most difficult thing in the world to accomplish. Suddenly, they appear like flies. No matter how nice their behavior — no matter what tokens of their esteem — they are choosing those women for their strength, and make no mistake about it.
You have been lucky that the men you are best without announce it so clearly. There is no longer a driving need to populate the planet. Women are still uncomfortable, by and large, dining alone. Men dining alone are, perhaps, pitied. Women dining alone are the object of scorn.
Yet, when are most men happy? When they are in the company of other men. When are most women happy? When they give up too much of themselves to be tied to men who are happiest in the company of other men, or, who are subservient.
Men and women need to give each other a break and leave each other alone until this mess sorts itself out. What about the need for physical affection? Well, at what cost. It might be perception…. Men want to be needed…. Doctors maybe the same. Maybe men feel they can not financially keep up….
Most are trying to do something about it … But lack of job experience and parental responsibilities make it very tough. Oh no, too many women must have custody because of control issues, and money. Few things irk me more than how women fight for custody, then whine about the burden of single parenting. I was told, women happen to be very smart, intelligent and know the solution, they just like to talk about the drama in their lives….
You are absolutely correct that the qualities that make a highly successful attorney, especially a trial lawyer, are not so attractive in the dating world. I agree with the person who says that initial dating should be between a man and a woman.
Being ostentatious about financial success and career accomplishments has the potential to turn off certain people. This is not necessarily due to insecurities or even to gender constructions. It may have to do with personal values, with not wanting someone too materialistic or power-driven.
I would be even more concerned about attracting those who want to be with me because of my financial success. Gold diggers come in both sexes. Who are you without your status and riches? Dating can be an opportunity to explore that. Toys and careers just like boys…. Lots of sunny, sweet ladies who are really struggling financially — in a lot of cases stuck with raising his kids after he runs off with his secretary.
They are broke and miserable, far more miserable than any career woman. I know many women in this situation and they are in real financial peril. You have a point there. Plenty of high powered men that have an air of self-entitlement.
But there are others who have it all and still struggle. Independent women are in any position who have struggled for her achievements, having resentment is a definite turn off in any relationship. I feel like In life why would you want less for yourself? The point is this: Be who you are. The mask will slip sooner or later, and then what?
Like it or not, a different approach is called for in the romantic arena. We female go-getters work alongside men all day long — taking tons of initiative, being aggressive and competitive, putting out fires and ruling our little corner of the world with unswerving confidence and aplomb. Find your own feminine energy reserve and embrace it. What do you have to lose? Date guys who are dreamers and have no drive, who like to nest and pick out wallpaper or sit home and drink all day and watch sports on T.
They will savor be taken care of while you go out and slay those dragons to put meat on the table. If you truly are a masculine energy woman, things should work out great. If not… at some point you will burn out, feel drained and start resenting your man for not slaying a few damn dragons himself once in a while.
Yes, you can kill your own spiders in the bathroom at 3 a. I found your remarks so telling, Michelle: When you make the man do most of the work to capture you, he pulls out all the stops. He feels challenged and alive. When we pursue men or present ourselves on dates as their equivalents, and advertise our many accomplishments instead of looking, smelling and sounding pretty and graciously accepting what THEY have to offer US, the opposite happens.
We take their jobs away from them. I was in your shoes. Over-the-top bright, successful, financially set, my career life an embarrassment of riches. I still have to work at it every day; I find myself trying to be the leader, telling my husband what to do and how to do it. I have to bite my tongue and let him at least have a turn sometimes. And not nagging him. That, too, is a gift! I am so glad I read your blog comment. Did it open my eyes!!!!!!!!!!!! Not mention my brain like a pinata!
The big light bulb went on and then the tears came…realizing the damage I had done to a very special relationship I wish so much I could fix especially with what I know and realize now about MYSELF. I know there will be arguments against this and the Rules…but for me it makes sense.
Again, thank you so very much…. Are they simply a struggling person, or just have no regard because they are self absorbed? If you say nothing then the person will assume you are okay with it or perhaps not assume anything at all. Bottom line is that if you desire a person who has a clue then that is who you need to seek. In other words, you either stay with them or leave them single for a woman who is prepared to put up with less and there are plenty of women like that.
I agree with Luis. There were a lot of interesting points in the article, however, to sum it up I heard…you should play down yourselves to make a man feel like a man.
Simply be seen and not heard so as to not step on an already fragile ego. Women have egos as well and quite frankly…. The truth of the matter is this: None of us have it all figured out no one is perfect man nor woman.
You can still be a warm and compassionate and an opinionated woman towards your significant other and not bend to any of that but you have to be dealing with a mature man to do so.
With that being said no one man or woman wants to be constantly criticized about anything so you do have to be mindful of that. And if his decision affects her as well? Is she then allowed to give feedback? You should dump this man. If he really displeases you that much, you need to dump him.
He deserves to be with someone who finds his absentminded-ness cute and his clutziness adorable. You either accept him and let him be who he is, or you move on with the knowledge that he will meet someone who accepts him. Jess, I have two questions: Why on earth would you date or stay with someone like that? We have yet to here his side. Is not being fake, is being equals like every women think they need to be. Sandra, yes men do have to self-moderate their own words and actions.
So would you change or would you insist that they must learn to accept the authentic you? The idea here is not to fake change, but to actually change. Imagine a man who comes home and does nothing but scowl and gruffly complain. The problem is that you want men to change who they are, but at the same time, accept you as you are.
Women have changed — good for them. No one ever asked men if they wanted women to change or if they wanted to change themselves. One thing that never changed about women — their self-centeredness. Try working on that then get back to us. You just took the words out of my mouth!
What I gathered from this article was this—Woman, it is not your job to use your brain and have opinions or thoughts of your own. No one cares if you followed your dreams and did what you wanted. Please leave the thinking and decision making to the man and learn how to smile and always say yes. Do men even realize hep that makes us feel? You seem to be very distressed over this. I would say that you have it wrong. You did not read the article correctly.
Joe Rogan, from Fear Factor is on the left and another guy is on the right. He never acknowledges any point that Joe makes. But I will say this. Maybe acts effeminate, is that OK? Maybe you will never understand. Maybe you need to be a man to understand it. It is OK to be picky. Is it even worth dating him? These things go both ways, sometimes the girl or guy is tactless and could learn some social skills, sometimes what is being asked for is unreasonable.
Just use your brain and decide for yourself what you are comfortable with. Men just want mothers they can have sex with at the end of the day. The world is grey. I agree with smithy above. Warm food and constant sex. Unfortunately men are socialized not to understand their own dimensions as humans, so how can we expect for them to seek others in a complete way and not only to fulfill their primitive needs? They must bring something to table for you to want relationships with them.
What are those somethings? Interesting article and pretty much the conclusion I have come to myself, I have accepted that to be happy I would need to become ok with being alone or settle for a beta male that will never challenge my authority. Women dont need men.
We all go our own way. You are an eye opener.. Very good with words.. And you use it well.. Are you a guy posing as a woman?? The difference is, the males with the feminine energy are truly the ones who lose out, often in life in general and especially with love. Because most of what you say is true, except that masculine energy females still ultimately end up leaving their male partners by and large and become dissatisfied.
The data suggests this strongly. I know this personally, I put it to test. In fact recent data suggest even women with feminist leanings eventually leave their mates due to this innate female dissatisfaction with their mates.
So not only are most of the jobs that men excelled at being destroyed and automated, but women now on the whole when apples to apples comparisons are made actually make more than men. In fact, it is projected by that females while graduate college 2: They are shy, less secure, often low income, despite being wonderful human beings.
Hypergamy is a tough mistress, so is our biology. The truth is Alpha females, def. Men make up the majority of the chronically homeless and the suicides. This too plays a role in male odds for happiness. Women get lighter sentencing in divorce court, and the legal system in general for equivalent crimes.
We simply view men as the more disposable sex. Men are easily pleased and many,m if able are willing to support a low income female. As long as she is sweet, nurturing, supportive, caring, and attractive. The opposite is rarely true.
The data bares it out. She wrote a book about it, and did a tv segment on it in Her name is Norah Vincent. I think in this context women are reaping a little of what they have been sowing. Excuse me if I sound a little resentful, I admittidly am. Over the last 50 years or so our roles have gotten reversed and our society is suffering for it, and so are these women. It could be said that they are getting exactly what they wanted; independance, careers, etc and these are the by-products of that movement.
Much of what women have acheived are what WE are supposed to be out there acheiving! We are the ones who are supposed to be out there slaying the dragons for you ladies! Do women really want Mr Mom? But being a strong leader type is not exactly politically correct or honored in todays culture is it?
Either is being in charge, yet that is what we as men are wired for, that is why we would rather have a woman who agrees with our opinions rather than have a bunch of her own. In the end, woman want and need to be loved unconditionally, and men want and need to be respected unconditionally.
Do we want weak men? But do we want to be weak ourselves? When I was a little girl, I certainly fantasized about slaying my fair share of dragons. What we want is for men like you to acknowledge the fact that women are also human beings with goals and aspirations.
We want careers, and we deserve careers just as much as you do. I like strong, successful men, as do most other women I know. You need to look at what you are saying. You want to be smart and driven and have a career, which is fine.
You want a man who is smart and driven and has a career. This is fine too. The problem is you want both of these things. Putting two smart successful driven people together is like putting two alpha dogs in a cage.
They are not going to get along. If one of the people in a relationship is a rock, the other has to be softer, or the relationship wont work. Women always write off men who are gentle and nurturing. I find being aggressive draining. I like smart, driven aggressive women, but I have no intention of being that way myself. I prefer reading in the park to climbing the corporate ladder.
Also, you said good luck finding someone to fight with. Some of the most quiet women I know turned out to be the biggest headaches for the men they were dating. Having the ability to think deeply about subject matters does not equate to arguments. Most successful women are also very confident which mean. Yeah personality matches are important. If both people want to be in charge it is just kind of draining.
I honestly prefer it when whoever I am dating has their own projects and leaves me alone to mine. It also seems to be generational. Gen X guys are too interested in being in charge which is tedious. I like guys who are mellow. I have noticed something though. Her definition is something along the lines of a social buff — hosting major parties….
You want a social butterfly, not an engineer. I acknowledge that fact. And women like you should acknowledge that men, in general, are not attracted to women like you. Much of what men fear in string women is derived from their overactive imaginations and assumptions.
Yes I am opinionated but I gave never ridiculed or tried to control any man.. Most women are very nurturing and supportive, even the career driven ones. I feel like most men are acting on assumptions. Do they even give us smart and successful women a chance to show our feminine side?
Most of us hard working women are very sweet and caring on the inside just waiting for the right man to see that in us. Alexis, you are right. In any case, what are we supposed to do when single? We could wait a long time… A very sexist message is given here to women: I was happy that a woman won the prestigious Fields Medal for mathematics but even happier to read in an interview that she is married, and not just to some houseman but to a guy who is a professor himself.
Apparently he is not intimidated by her brain. In modern relationships both people can develop different aspects of their personality: Both men and women want to accomplish this. To the men complaining that women are not loving and caring my message is: I never compete with men but I often notice that they start doing it the moment I tell them what I do for a living I am not bragging about it but I happen to have a high profile job so by simply mentioning it they already know that I am successful careerwise.
Am I supposed to lie about what job I am doing? You ask me what I am doing and I am giving you an honest answer and after that I want to talk about other things.
About us ignoring nice men. Why would we do that? The problem is that most men who think they are nice men are not nice. They are often very frustrated because they see themselves as less successful as the more alpha males. So they expect a woman to build up their fragile ego which pushes a woman more in the role of a mother than the one of a partner.
Nothing wrong with being nice but it has to be genuine and there has to be inner strenght that goes together with it. No woman who is confident can resist a nice confident man. When will women actually listen for a change? Why do women not understand that men simply find career driven women boring, uninteresting and more than anything… unattractive??
It would be more constructive to just ask them to forget about us men and marry yourselves. I support strong career driven women and wish them all the best in their pursuits.
Men have, as they often do, done a cost benefit analysis of the situation and are checking out. Sociological data shows women, of all stripes, not just traditional types, but feminist leaning house husband positive go getter females eventually become dissatisfied and leave their mates.
Women want their cake and eat it too. There are only so many hours in the day, and the economics of the world continue to get harsher. The evidence strongly points to what men know instinctively, career driven females make for terrible mates on aggregate there are always exceptions. Are women supposed to go on dates and pay for the bills? I think a man that loves you is willing to do just anything for u as long as you let him.
They may have been uncertain about a lot of things but paying, this is one thing men I meet insist on doing. I actually liked paying sometimes because it meant we got to do what I wanted to do. It meant I had the choice of activity. But it was terrible for chemistry-making in the first three dates. Some men who comment here say otherwise, but I would see that gleam and little thrill a man gets from paying and for me smiling and saying thank you.
And my gratitude was genuine because it is a nice, caring gesture. It gives me a warm feeling of gratitude and makes me feel appreciated. I probably still could use more lessons in being soft and sweet. Now I could actually become more sweet in relationships.
Or maybe I like being feisty. Who would want to see their wife or significant other suffering, struggling to get through with some house chores or cooking or cleaning and you just sit there relaxing when you both just came home from 8 to 10 hour job??
This is not the good ole days…some men simply need to elevate their thinking pass selfishness and start to learn what it is to be a team player and a leader in a relationship. Being a REAL leader means being able to get down in the trenches with everyone else to achieve goals.. Lol and what this says to me is that the above is typical female thinking nowadays; blaming men for everything while yourself accepting none of that blame.
That seems quite selfish to me, Christy. Please we are in the age of the internet. Clean and watch Netflix …….. Sorry but, most of those hard working men had to hand over those checks to the wife, who really ran the show and had the purse strings, she just expected her work mule to go out there and earn, and he felt that was what he could do best. I understand what you are saying Paul. It was forced on this generation of women. I think life is worse today for women than it was when roles were more traditional, but I say that with some hesitation because honestly I did not live in those times.
However I did have a very abusive father that well, destroyed my mother, and a grandmother that put up with a lot of abuse from my grandfather as well. Here I am, I chose the path of wife and mother and no career. It is not so bad for me, my husband is a fairly successful nice man, but I am under his thumb and sometimes it really upsets me when I run into how powerless I really am. Life is such a crap shoot. I have a friend who never married, has no kids but is extremely well off and lives in a skyscraper in Manhattan with river view.
She has a lap dog. Sometimes I envy her because no one really controls her, yet I see she sometimes lacks real intimacy in her life. Who is to say which life is really better? Because now they could tax the other half of the population, and get the kids into the system and indoctrinated sooner.
In fact, America works more hours than nearly any other major industrialized country in the world. He will still be better off with a liveable wage while you scramble to catch up after spending a lifetime giving your life so someone else could forward theirs while still having a family and a well run home.
You might wake up one day and see that you have one chance on this earth and that living in a tent is infinitely better than giving all your power to somebody who has no respect for you. Good luck but I urge you to weigh up whether you think working everyday is worth the soul destruction you are living. Go to school get a career , it is never too late. You must be unhappy to be married and reading here. Men were loving women unconditionally?
NO adult desires to submit to another adult … another flawed adult. You simply just desire power. There are men who like to cook and women who have abundant knowledge. But none of you are encouraging these women. I think more women are ok with balanced men; men who have feminine and masculine traits. The ideal is balanced with both. Because the world today requires it and always has. Men can not be trusted to not abuse power, an no day is promised to any one.
So a woman had better have the sense to navigate this world alone as well as with a partner. But the partner should adjust. Men have not learned why their power has been usurped, so it continues. This used to bug me too, as if women are somehow better at being spoken down to or not having ambitions or always being in a support role for someones elses career. I have pride too. I have desires too. I also want to make my mark on the world.
My pride and self respect are knocked when treated like an acessory rather than fully paid up human with thoughts and feelings and desires. It used to hurt when all I had to say when someone said what do you do? I want to achieve in my own right — we all do. From my own experience a reasonable number of professional women have a tough time letting their hair down and when with them seem to feel as if I were attending a 24 hour Martha Stewart festival.
Heck, ANY woman with those qualities is worth keeping! But in the final analysis the size of the pocketbook, the position in the boardroom, the model of the car does absolutely nothing to make a woman appealing. Does she let her hair down? Is she open to actually getting her jeans dirty during a vigorous, picturesque hike? Does she set aside some time to actually listen to me, or is she answering her email, texts and cell phone calls constantly?
Iamges: keys to a successful dating relationship
I had romantic dreams and the reality of the dating scene was a wake-up call… A man with answers about men!
To surrender and let go a bit would really balance me out.
Every other creature on this planet has gender roles and fills then as required, without question.
