October 8, 2012 You just had a fabulous date. Now you and your sexy new boo are on your couch and things are getting hot and heavy. He’s turned on. You’re turned on. And then he makes his move: “Want to take this to the bedroom?” Pause.  If you are not in a committed relationship with this guy it may be prudent to take a second to turn down the…
September 10, 2012 As a dating coach, sometimes I get the question from women, “Is it okay for me to approach a man?” And while some people believe that a woman should steer clear from approaching a man simply because it may insult his masculinity, I tell my clients, “It is the year 2012 for God/ Allah/ Buddha’s sake! Of course it is okay for you to go for it!”Think about…

July 30, 2012 Is romance dead? Is chivalry a thing of the past? Most women these days seem to agree that these ideas are fading fast! It may be 2012, the age of the modern female, but most of us still appreciate a sweet gesture from time to time. We asked a few members of the opposite sex to reveal the most romantic thing they’d ever done for a woman……
July 16, 2012We all want a soul mate. “The One.”Your perfect partner who can read your mind + finish your sentences.We want fate + fireworks.But believing in predetermined destiny is limiting.It leaves little room for adventure + what life may want to give you.What if The One isn’t who you thought they would be?Love isn’t always syrupy sweet kisses + walking off into the sunset.Sometimes the purpose of a soul…
July 2, 2012 Ever since I was old enough to want a boyfriend, I didn’t really want a boy. I wanted a man. Not that I was 18 wanting to date 40-year-old men; I just admired guys who were at least a few years older.Why, you ask? Well, guys who were older than me always seemed to have a lot more to offer.  For instance, when I was in high school…
June 4, 2012It’s 11pm on a Saturday night. You decided to keep it chill tonight. You had a couple vodka sodas with a twist of lime – to relax and get a slight buzz on before bedtime.  Hey, it's  been a long week and it's well-deserved.  You mixed it up with your roommate for a little while, ate a slice of pizza, went to bed and crashed hard.  Now your…
June 4, 2012 “Hi Erika!It's Seth.”  The subject line of an email should not be enough to throw a girl into a panicked frenzy, complete with wringing of hands, pulling of hair, and whimpers of despair. And yet, there we were.  Me and my inbox, caught in a classic tug-of-war battle: To open or not to open. I knew this email would be coming.  My overly ambitious, Jewish mother had…
April 23, 2012Dating.  It’s probably 1 part fun and 5 parts exhausting.  Getting to know a guy and figuring out what he’s about is a PROCESS.  Sure, first impressions can be telling, but I know that I have written people off at first--only to come around later once they broke my ironclad walls down; or have been initially attracted to some smooth-talking sex god with killer abs--only to find out…
April 23, 2012If you’re anything like me, the first thing I think about when a man asks me out is, “what in the world am I going to wear?”  Made Women are always fly, but the first date outfit should involve a bit more thought and effort than your everyday look-- you want to make a lasting impression!What you wear on a first date depends on where you are going.…
April 9, 2012We here at Made Woman write a lot of articles, especially articles geared towards women. But we haven’t forgotten about our male readers. I know that this world of technology has made it almost pointless to pick up a phone and actually call a woman because you can just text, email, facebook, instagram, tumblr, tweet or skype her to get your point across. But, texting can be a…

March 12, 2012 Men. We may never understand the way they think. With their sneaker obsessions, secret double lives as online gamers, and–of course—their football gods, they are basically a different species. But what if you had the chance to look into the mind of a man? Some of the things they think about women might surprise you. We asked a bunch of guys the questions you always wanted to know…
March 12, 2012In our high heels and after 5pm attire, we confidently filed into a dimly lit downtown lounge. Instead of the sexy vibe we had expected, we walked into an awkward silence, with most guests sitting alone or huddled with the groups of friends they had come with. My three girlfriends and I briefly scanned the room before ordering martinis at the bar, grabbing a few of the greasy,…
