Podcast #82 Where’s My Respect?

Rodney Dangerfield’s signature line was “I don’t get no respect!” He made disrespect amusing, but close-up life is a little different.

Our toss-about subject today revolves around figuring the place of respect and respectfulness in couplehood. Where does respect lie wrt the priorities of men and women? How important is knowing each other’s boundaries and trigger points? Does it change over time?


Podcast #80 Are Men The New Women?

A couple of weeks ago we posited that women are changing, heading towards being more like men.

In this podcast, Kregg and I explore the other side of that phenomenon, namely, are men morphing to be more like womenfolk? And if so, what’s the impact on us finding each other, and remaining coupled? Can we survive this shift in our relationships, or will the entire coupling scene change?

Find out what fun lies ahead for us all by listening!

Podcast #79 Dealing With Change

Change is inevitable, and even with the best intention in the world, couples will grow closer and further apart because of it.

Are we taking on more than is reasonable when we couple-up with someone? Is all change acceptable? Are there better ways to make it work when we’re out of synch? What about discomfort created by one of us changing?

Kregg and I take a big-picture look.

Podcast #78 Are Men Redundant?

The number of men needed to keep the species going is around 125. Once that requirement is satisfied, what’s the point of the rest of them?

Are men on the way to virtual redundancy? Do women now overlook our part in their lives? Kregg and I toss around the case for men.

Does Instant “Love” Last?: Podcast #77

Stories about life to which we want to attach stick in our memory.  If you’d like to fall in love once and live happily with that person forever, you’ll find and remember examples of just that, thereby providing yourself with proof of what you want.

This has a name: confirmation bias. We tend to see what we are looking for, and it keeps us from being more rational than we otherwise might. But that’s all psycho-babble, which does not begin to describe this podcast.
