The Day Lovers Remember

If you are a lover, you probably have already been anticipating Valentine's Day, the day to celebrate love. Our celebration of Valentine's Day has become a tradition. Champaigne, steamed clams and garlic bread on a festive table with fresh flowers in the middle.

You probably have your own way of celebrating--perhaps something unusual like a gift of chocolate covered strawberries. You might consider buying my book, "Becoming Soul Mates" and find a couple of pages to read and discuss. You can open it at almost any point and find two pages to read and talk about. Together you can talk about how much you love and feel loved. A great day to celebrate love!

Do Nice Guys Finish Last?

I know a guy who seems to do many of the things good lovers do when they are dating. He respects his date, is attentive and loving, focuses on her wishes and needs, notices what she likes and provides it. He even writes funky edgy poetry to her if he really likes her. He is one of those rare men who tries to do everything right.

He says, "I'm not sure women really want a "nice" guy. I think many women want a man who is a challenge, a man they can "tame". Sometimes I think women take advantage of a guy like me."

What do you think?

What Good Lovers Do

On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate yourself as a lover? We will begin a discussion of what good lovers do. I would like to get your input.

Good lovers turn up the energy level. They focus on each other. They communicate with their eyes. They touch freely. They talk and listen. They pray for each other. They want the best for each other. They flirt with each other. They enjoy being together.

How are you doing so far? More next time.......

The Sexist Men Alive

People Magazine's "the sexist men alive" are not necessarily good lovers. We will begin talking about what makes you a lover. Some of the men on the list can offer some answers. Johnny Depp, this year's winner says he is happiest when he is with his family. The family is rarely apart. Simon Baker has a genuine smile and likes to laugh. Matthew McConaughey is kind, adventurious and lives his life with passion every day. Bradley Cooper manages to be manly while still being sensitive. He knows how to make others feel attractive.

This is a start. Are you a good lover? We will talk about what makes a good lover in future blogs. Check with friends on facebook, what do they think makes a good lover?
