Black Tie Function...Which Guy Do I Take?

Dear Jacqui, I have an exciting black tie function to attend for my company and some of our top management will be there. In the past, I have always asked the same reliable “safe friend” to be my escort for business-related social events. However, three weeks ago I met a new man. He’s very attractive but…I don’t know him yet, and he seems to like keeping me guessing. After we went out the first time he didn’t say a word if there would be a second date. I was a little surprised that he called again. I’m attracted to him and would like to spend this special evening with him. On the other hand, if he turns out to be...

Women today are used to taking charge, and when symptoms occur, will often buy an...

To Improve Your Relationship, Accept Fundamental Differences

A major brain study, conducted by University of Pennsylvania neurologists, establishes that women’s and men’s brains are not wired the same ways. The MRI images clearly showed that gender differences were far more significant than expected; so different, in fact, that it was hard to believe they belonged to the same species. Men showed more connections between the front and back of their brains and within each hemisphere. In women, there were primarily more connections from side to side, meaning men are more logical and excel at coordination and spatial awareness, while women are far more intuitive, have greater emotional understanding and are better at memorizing words and faces. Male brains link perception with doing, thus they would be better...
