9 Simple Things Men Want In A Relationship
One of the most frequent comments I get on the countless articles I have about what women want in relationships, is: Hey man, what about what guys want?After 10+ years of writing — primarily about what women want in relationships — I’m no stranger to the frustration of the lack of material online about what us dudes want (need) as well.What’s more is, I believe some women are genuinely frustrated by the lack of communication that their partner gives, and they don’t know quite how to love him or what he’s truly looking for.Men are conditioned to hide their feelings and “not be needy,” but there is a difference between being needy and having needs.We all have needs in a relationship, so here are 8 to help you better understand your guy, because if he won’t tell you, I will:

Which of These Popular Dating Apps Deserves Your Time?
With so many sites and apps out there focused on dating, it can be tough at times when deciding how to approach the concept. The pure proliferation of these digital dating options might even have you wishing for the return of analog ones, like IRL speed dating or personals in the local newspaper.
