Can Men and Women really coexist? I hear it all the time amongst my girlfriends “He just doesn’t get it” “He’ll never understand” and “I can’t believe he did that”. Why do we continued to be shocked over the actions of our husbands, boyfriends, or significant other. Dan Lier and Michael Lindstrom are going to try and help us understand those bubbling buffoon. Tonight (Thursday April 22nd) join us for Girls Chat on MomTV 10pm EST and 7pm PST. Dan is going to start to teach us about the Man’s fragile ego and how to communicate with him.
Dan introduces this topic here…
The relationship and self-help industry (online dating services, books, CDs, seminars) is a multi-billion dollar industry, and yet the divorce rate in the United States still hovers above 50 percent. How is this possible when the twenty-first century has sent us alleged gurus like Dr. Phil, Oprah, and Jon Gray (author of Men are From Mars, Women are from Venus) to save the day? Is it possible that men and women are, in fact, from different planets and the possibility of co-existing here on Earth is merely a pipe dream? As the authors of this powerful and point-blank relationship guide, we emphatically submit that men and women do have a fighting chance to co-exist here on Earth and do it in harmony with one another.
After toiling through hundreds of relationship books, tapes, and seminars the past fifteen years, it became abundantly clear that no one single relationship authority speaks to women in an explicit and candid way as we do in this book. Dr. Phil and Oprah have to cater to their mainstream audience without upsetting the omnipotent FCC. Doctors like Jon Gray and Dr. Ruth offer the clinical approach to why men and women are emotionally and sexually different. We shoot straight with relentless brutality, even stirring the consciousness of America with our aggressive yet professionally honest approach to aiding women and men in their quest for emotional and sexual Nirvana.
Make no mistakes about it: books in this genre have in fact, been written. However, we always get a laugh out of books and programs about men written by a woman or about women written by a man. We are not clinicians! We are not therapists! We are not relationship gurus like some may espouse! We are two educated, fun, straight guys that have spent the last several years personally interviewing fellow average American men and women, asking them the tough questions about relationships, marriage, sex, and commitment.
Dan is engaged, has two beautiful children, and is in a happy and loyal relationship. Mike is married with a young son and a second child on the way. Make no mistake about it, we were once considered true players before we met our current partners. We did all the typical guy things, like watch sports, drink beer, compete, and talk trash in the locker rooms. This book is not talking about understanding men by allowing them to go into their caves, as some therapists have postulated. This is straight talk from two guys who want you to be happy and feel empowered to keep your man committed and loyal.
So now that you have an idea where they’re going with this, what do you think?
Why do you think men cheat?
What two conversations that MUST happen in a successful relationship?
