#21 What he said: A conversation with my guy friend

Ok you guys, I'm back with the conversations.  Now I'm going to do as many via video as I can.  So if you have any guys in the NC area, who would be good for a topic, let me know!

Today's Guy: D. Lee
How I know him: Our mutual friend suggested we talk about an issue D. Lee was having.  He introduced us at church.
Topic:  The dreaded FRIEND ZONE

So D. Lee and I discussed the friend zone.  Do you feel that the "friend zone" is the place potentially good mates go to fizzle out?  How often have you placed a guy in the "friend zone" because you just didn't feel a "spark" or "chemistry"?

Guys, do you think women miss out on good potential mates by placing guys into the friend zone?

Or is the friend zone not so bad after all?  Is it not better to be friends with your mate first?  Or is the friend zone totally different than being friends leading to mates?

Unfortunately, the vast majority of victims haven’t prepared a plan of action, or had security or monitoring devices installed. Protection is a major concern in light of the fact that three women are killed by a partner every day. Providing for your safety and that of your children can seem an overwhelming objective for domestic violence victims who are just trying to get away from destructive relationships and get on with their lives. Many assume that…

Guy Secrets: He treats his friends better than you

I know, the title of this blog post may have caused a screw face with some of you. However...many women often complain about how much time their men spends with friends.
There's a reason for that... If your man spends more time away from you and with his friends... It's because he likes them and feels obligated to you.
That may seem a little crazy, but someone really can love you, but not like you very much. If your relationship is more like a chore than a good me, your dude will always look for an escape. He will take on more hours at his real job, join an extra rec league, hand out with his boys more, etc.
There is a cure for that, though... If you and your boo have a genuine friendship...enjoy similar activities, can talk and joke with each other, really find joy in each other's personalities...he will actually want to spend time with you.
More than that, when a dude considers you a friend, he feels more free and less tied down. Honestly, dudes secretly de…

Curves Connect: Online dating for real people seeking real relationships

Many people find online dating frustrating. Between the lies and game playing, the fear of being "catfished" and the sensory overload they have decided that online dating is a waste of time.
