The Problem with falling in Love

February 14, 2013 Leave a comment

Our parents were incredibly naive about love.

How it typically begins always makes the inevitability of how it ends so much more perplexing and painful. Image ­© Copyright 2012 Tomasz Wagner, Mananetwork Wedding Photography. Used with permission.

There was once a person you would have moved heaven and earth for. He or she was all sorts of amazing.  Your only problem with this person is that all of the wonderful things that you once loved about them have inexplicably evaporated. You want to know something interesting? The factors that caused the evaporation were always there when you first met. It’s just as you got to know them better, they became harder to ignore. It’s like the intensity of the good things you loved about them have swapped places with the bad things. Familiar?

Then we need to talk.

The successful female is genetically hazardous to her own species.

Beyonce - Who Run The World (Girls)

As we were discussing in the previous post, Sasha Fierce, aka Beyoncé Knowles seems to have some pretty misplaced conceptions about who runs the world. So we decided to ask the question (hypothetically), why can’t women run the world? We covered the first five of what I believe to be the top ten of those reasons. In this post, I cover the top five. If you thought the previous post on this issue was a doozy, then hang on to your stockings. This one bites.

Inequality is a necessity while equality is a pacifying concept.

I could tell you why men rule the world, but then I’d just be insulting your intelligence. A more intriguing question to ask is, why is it that women don’t rule the world? No, really. With all the power that they wield over men, why is it that women don’t already rule the world? Men have ruled the world from the dawn of civilization. With all the amazing things that are going on for women, (education, equality, etc.). It’s not exactly impossible is it? Well… you’d be surprised.

Marriage is as relevant today as the horse drawn carriage.

Marriage via horse drawn carriageHow convenient.

The biggest problem with the institution of marriage likely has very little to do with what we’re doing wrong with marriage as opposed to marriage itself. If you’re having marital problems, you may want to consider the fact that marriage is fairly antiquated. In this post, I will cover the remaining five of the top ten issues with the popular concept of marriage and why they are now a recurring cause of failure in marital relationships as societies continue to evolve.

Everyone falls in love with wedding days, but few of us fall in love with marriage.

Marriage is dying. Studies show that marriage is on the decline all over the world. More and more people are opting out of being married. The number of people who are married in the most developed societies around the world are at an all time low. But as you’ll note from the above linked article, this is not a cyclical trend. Marriage has been on a steady decline since the 1950’s. What gives? I explore this phenomenon in this post about the slow death of love.

Girl Power Is A Myth

July 11, 2008 31 comments

The mere fact that the phrase ‘Girl Power’ was ever coined alludes to the fact that it is just a myth.

Girl Power

I love having a female boss. There’s not much else in the world that’s as awesome as answering to a woman – especially when she’s bloody hot. Let’s face it, we live in a world where even though women are stepping up and stepping out, they’ll never be taken quite as seriously in the workplace as their male counterparts. Women are trying desperately to be treated with the same level of gravity as men, only to run into an irritating dilemma: Do you sacrifice your femininity to be taken seriously or do you accentuate your femininity and be treated as a sex object? You sure as ever can’t have both. Decisions, decisions. My contention is: Why are women even giving themselves such a headache in the first place? What was so wrong with the world when Men ruled unequivocally and women were our heart throb ladies in waiting at home? Ladies, in case you’re wondering why you even have to make a choice, here’s the top ten reasons why no matter what you do, this is still, always was, and always will be a man’s world:
