Guys, you'll want to pay attention as you read this post.
It covers some very true and obvious challenges that both men and women are dealing with...Especially in today's infamous dating landscape.
Whether you are single, dating or in a long term relationship, never take your foot of the gas...here's why:
I had the opportunity to sit with a dear and platonic friend that I hold in high regard. She's a women's coach and dating expert. So she had much to share about her real-world observations.
We sat at the corner of the bar in a very popular and busy chain restaurant. It was the start of "Happy Hour" and the suits were pouring in to enjoy a drink with colleagues, for camaraderie and some came in for the feigned attention of the very attractive bar staff.
I had an interesting dilemma put forth to me by a client that has been in a new relationship for about two months.
She is all he's ever wanted: she's cute, she's fun, she's got quirky sense of humour and she's got a penchant for the unpredictable. One of those things just happens to be kissing passionately any time, any where. She loves PDA - public displays of affection.
For most guys this sounds like a great scenario to be in. I mean, Damn! That's kinda hot!
But this is not his reality nor his brand of PDA because he is more reserved. He loves the passion between them but as long as it is at home or somewhere private.
He is having a hard time with telling her that it's not appropriate at restaurants, gatherings with friends or out in public where people could be offended.
It's a Wednesday night and you're fresh from a coffee date that you feel went pretty good. She laughed at your weak impression of Elvis, she shared her back-story without boring you and what was to be an hour meeting became two.
When it was time to say goodbye out on the street you warmly hugged and agreed you'd both like to see each other again.
So now you sit on the couch with the phone in your hand staring at her number you have on speed dial.
There's a pang of anxiety that hits as you press "Dial"...It rings...and rings...Damn! It's voice mail. You hear her pleasant voice on the recorded message and it takes you back to seeing her across the table. You smile. Then you hear the tone as your mind scrambles for something clever and witty to say.
I presented at The Remarkable Man Project last week about Charisma, Charm and Swagger. However, as much as it sounds like it's about dating and romance it was a much deeper dive into the inner game of "Being A Man". See the video below.
The first step to bringing more charisma and swagger into your life is to Let go of the stories you hang on to. What I mean is, you have a story, if not a few that keeps you playing small, limiting your growth, or preventing you from living the life you long to have.
As well, "Be A Man" has itself congured up a number of diverse perspectives. Many of them derogitory. What happened? We need to change the story.
We need to bring honour, integrity, charisma and inner strength into what it means to be a man.

We are half way through The Biggest Outdoor Show On Earth. Also known as the Calgary Stampede. For those of you that have never heard of it or have never experienced it...it is truly something to behold.
When I was a newbie to the Stampede many years ago, I thought it would be just like any other annual civic event. You know...an area of the city that has a dedicated fairground and event area where the festival takes place. Boy was I wrong!
Calgary...and I mean the whole city of over a million...turns into a ten-day party of celebration, excess and hedonism all wrapped up in a country and western theme.
Sure there's the world's largest rodeo and the city does a great job in promoting it as a family friendly event, but if you've been here you soon realise that the real event(s) are wh...
It's happened more that once. It will happen again and if it hasn't happened to you...it will!
Yeah...there's not a situation in life that brings more fear, shame and self emasculating feelings in man than that of Male Sexual Disfunction.
In today's relationship landscape more and more men are dealing with sexual disfunction than ever before. The male mojo is being decimated at epidemic levels!
In 2010 The worldwide incidence of erectile dysfunction was estimated at over 152 million men, with a forecast of 322 million men by the year 2025. A European study in Vienna of 2,869 men between the ages of 20 and 80 found 32% of their sample have some level of erectile dysfunction.
A Canadian study of 3,921 men between the ages of 40 and 88 found that 49.4% of men sampled hav...
