My, my, my how time flies! Here we are at the end of another year and another decade. Hopefully this year was better than the last. Or as my favorite toast goes, “May the best of your past be the worst of your future!” As you lovely and glorious ladies march onward into the two-thousand-teens, let’s take some time to reflect upon what may not have gone so well in the past and what we can do to have you OWN these next few years!

Now, having a wonderful mother that raised me right (black shoes go with a black belt) I was brought up learning that men make lots of mistakes in dating. The trick is to catch them before they come too ingrained. I still make ‘em but I have managed to cull them to a controllable quantity.

To me, women are the greatest creation on the face of this planet. A smile from a beautiful girl can make all your worries just wash away. However, this is not to say that they are infallible. They are human also and are subject to the same forces, foibles and foolishness that men are. So ladies, in the spirit of the holidays and goodwill towards all, here are some reasons that your dates may not have worked out.

Did you unknowingly bully or emasculate him? Men, we like to lead. We want to show you that we’re strong and can get things done. That’s not to say we’re always effective at it, we just like to think we are. Whether you are a C-level executive or a personal assistant we know you can probably manage your life, your boss’s life and 3 other coworkers and friends’ lives without missing a beat. You might meet a wonderful musician that has trouble remembering what day it is. However if you start trying to take over the planning of the date or begin working over the maitre d’ to get a better table, we won’t look on it fondly.

With women working in many high powered, high demand jobs we don’t look at you like shrinking violets anymore. But even though you know you could do a better job, leave it to us. I write for a fashion mag, but do you think I’m ever going to give my lady advice on what to wear?

    You’re so right about the oversharing of dating woes with the wrong audience. That kind of talk needs to be reserved to one’s good girlfriends in private convos. When actually out in front of others, I can’t imagine a bigger turn off for a guy than to hear a girl constantly complain about not getting X, Y,or Z. I have seen my male friends instantly assume such girls are crazy, insecure, too much trouble.
