Heartset; Wounded Men and the Women Who Take Control of Them Instead of Empowering Them


  I guess I thought I might be getting into a rut, defining myself by my work and my private practice but I'm now thinking it's FAR more important that I focus on that than finding a new mate. I'm not lonely. I love sleeping alone and don't wax nostalgic over a man stomping up …

Heartset; Three Types of Heterosexual Relationships


The only one of these that is a real relationship is #3. The first two are sexual objectification. But by most people's standards, #1 is a real relationship and is considered prison by many men but socially increases his status. Really, any man who prefers #2 will say he doesn't want a relationship with a …

Heartset; Real Dating Strikes the Fear of God in Men


That's why so many men want to go to sex right away. They don't want to show their lack of people skills, expressing emotion, or relationship skills to a woman. Dating is a gray area with no fences, rules or customs that change with passing time. Men thrive with boundaries and go down the tubes …

Heartset; “I care about you too but…”


I've heard this line from the last five men I've dated. I think it's a MINIMUM expression of emotional involvement, fake or not to try to get sex. Meaning, he's not going to have any feelings for you UNLESS he has sex with you. I'm not judging that. It's very male. That's how feelings come …

Heartset; Love and Lust are a Two-Way Street


Both women and men love and lust. Women don't just attract men with their loving relationship skills and men don't just attract women with their constantly lusty energy. There are plenty of women who no longer believe in love and have just given in to the lust paradigm of hook-ups, use, and throw which is …

Essay; Sexual Shaming of Men


  I've been thinking about this issue for about a year now but it coalesced last night when I read a quite long, but well-thought-out blog post on this site that made light of how many women absorb shame from men when we have sex with them. Before that, we're fine, happy with ourselves, like …

Heartset; If You Don’t Give Him Sex When He Suggests It, You May as Well Not Exist.


Use your intuition on this one. Keep in mind the men are double-minded on this issue and may not even be aware that they are. Meaning, you'll hear gender equity pronouncements and exhortations to be direct, honest, and yourself in public and on social media and another thing in private one-on-one. In private, if they …

Mindset; What does “In Your Face” Mean from a Woman?


This article is dated May this year. There are a few articles every year to remind us that this Victorian issue is alive and well. Some women just don't get it and they keep planting seeds of injustice in our minds and then we carry it with us wherever we go in society. I guess …

Heartset; We Can Get a Room…


Most women suck it up even though they don't want to right away. What if you haven't met him yet? What if you've just talked long distance for a long time? I have to get a vibe in person with a guy. I freakin' don't get why guys don't care about that! They should. I …

Heartset; A #Female #Intimacy Myth Revealed


There's a myth I keep running into whenever I really like a man, we know each other and are friends, I'm attracted to him and want to have sex with him. His assumption is, given all of the desires I've listed above, I'll fall in love with him or I am in love with him and …
