Moxie blog dating advice clara fenocchio dating
I’d be inclined to publish highlights but that wouldn’t do this piece its proper justice. Noted blogger, Moxie, has written a powerful message to women in their late 30’s: take responsibility for your life.Just be prepared for its addictive, drug-like pull. I recommend strong doses of exercise, friend time and (honestly) time of humility before God so that it doesn’t become an idol in your heart and mind. Don’t do the exclusive thing until you have the “exclusive” conversation. A lot of men make this assumption on their own without ever asking us. They have more options than we do and don’t have to ask us. I was having a conversation with Evan Marc Katz recently.If you don’t know who he is, he’s a well known dating/relationship expert that started e-Cyrano, an online dating profile writing company. Men are pretty even-keeled about the ups and downs of dating. Says Moxie, “They don’t write articles about the dearth of “good” women. They don’t bemoan their bad dates on Twitter or Facebook. If I were to tender a guess, it’s for a few reasons: 1. That ticking clock gets louder and creates an undue sense of pressure to not “waste time” on the wrong men. Thus, women get hurt by passionate flings more than men. Men aren’t as consumed by relationships, in general. There are certainly a lot fewer male dating bloggers, relationship columnists, and dating coaches (apart from the pick-up artist crowd). I think it’s because women are more vocal about male shortcomings. I don’t want my profile posted somewhere and I’m not interested in being pursued for sex because that is the only thing single moms are good for. As a 40-year-old woman, she’s been through her share of heartbreak, but when she steps back and takes an objective look at the dating behaviors of women, 35-45, she sees something else entirely. They don’t have disclaimers or requirements beyond “Please enjoy giving head, be able to pay your bills, take good care of yourself and don’t be a pain in the ass.” So what is it that makes women more negative about the dating process than men? It’s biologically more difficult for women to have unattached sex without emotion and bonding. I think there’s a ton of reinforcement from women and women’s magazines that one should be married with children. Men aren’t encouraged to talk about their feelings, so even if they are lonely and pining for a relationship, you won’t hear them complain or rail on the opposite sex as much. I don’t think it’s because women are better than men. I find this behavior disturbing and for that reason alone I will not use dating websites.
On the flip side – I would agree women are in general more negative about dating and negative about men.
And I’d like to pass these along to you: things I wish I knew when I started. When I signed up for online dating, I couldn’t believe how addicting it was.
