I love Harvey's simple and humorous clarity. I wondered if his was a throw back approach and then I realized with his help, women and men are different for a reason. Praise the difference, respect the difference, see the difference...have great relationships. Simple, clear, fun! In conjunction with "Act like a Lady...Read more ›
Steve is partially correct, but he misses the central point. It is true that women do tend to settle for less than they truly want when dating, but the damage they're doing to themselves is not ultimately a result of letting men get away with murder, so to speak. Rather, the problem originates from the fact that women are choosing the wrong men. Decent men don't look for any opportunity to take advantage of women. They don't take that mile when given the proverbial inch. The men who do are the players, chiselers and con artists, the kinds of men who may look good in the store window but fall totally apart when you get them home from the mall.
'Act Like a Lady' ultimately is a rehashing of the familiar 'men are incorrigible dogs' theory of gender. It's a tired story that I'd hope we had moved past, but here it is again in a new package. Yes, men like sex. Yes, men like to look around. But decent men are able to control their urges, especially when they know that not doing so will cause great pain to those around them. Steve's theory doesn't stand up to real life, where if you spend any time, you quickly realize that uniqueness is a defining human personality trait.
Most women do have high standards--that is, until they run into a man who knows all the right things to say to circumvent their defenses. A woman can absolutely KNOW that she's worth all the trouble, but she'll totally drop her guard when a skilled player comes along saying all the right things.Read more ›
A) Him throwing a conniption when he wife went scuba diving because he wasn't able to "protect" her. His self-told performance showed that he is insecure and controlling. The thing that he loved about his wife, her sense of adventure, is the very thing he is trying to stifle.
B) The Momma's boy. A mother/son relationship is so complex at times that his woman can set all the boundaries she want but it's not until that man sets boundaries with his ma that things will change.
C) Cheating. It's a woman's fault men cheat. Period. Forget about self-control, commitment and communication - its all on the woman.
D) Single woman are too independent destined for loneliness. SH confuses being self-sufficient with being [too] independent. These days a woman may not need a man financially but need and want a man spiriutally, emotionally and physically. She is not suppose to wait for a man to save her (she already has a Savior) but be able to take care of herself and should want a man who appreciates that and likewise be able to take care of himself. Partnership isn't about completion but about two wholes joining together.
E) Meeting the children. I do not agree with a man meeting kids after a month of knowing him. That's unrealistic in this day and age. If it take 90 days to have sex, according to SH, it should take longer a man to actually meet the kids. Yes, he should know about them but should meet until a bond and commitment is formed.Read more ›
