Communicating With Your Ex Post Break-Up – Pt 1

"Communication problems" seems to be the catch-all phrase for every relationship problem, and is often sighted as the main cause of the collapse of many relationships.

Trigger Emotions That Make Him Want More Of You

This may sound like an old wives' tale, but believe me, it works!

The other way is creating a particular feeling in him that stimulates him into action. You can choose to use [...]

Why “Bad Girls” Get The Men “Good Girls” Want

One of the biggest mistakes that many women make with men is WAITING for him to make the first move.

The No. 1 Reason Men And Women Should Be Friends

Following my post: Men Who Can Show Real Emotions Are Sexier, I've gotten a lot of scolding from guys who don't like what I had to say, and from people who don't like that I used a photo of "an emotional President Obama".

Is There Still a Chance With An Ex Who’s Distant?

Question: Yangki, I have been reading your site for the past couple of weeks. As you can tell, I obviously still want my ex back.
