A friend just jokingly forwarded me an e-newsletter from Christian Carter, the “self-made relationship and dating guru.” The title? “Make Him Addicted to You.” Clicking through to Christian’s site, I found pages promising me that I can “create a FOREVER feeling in a man so he’s literally addicted to YOU and ONLY YOU,” which all led conveniently to a collection of e-books and audio CDs that could be mine for only 19.99/month.
Ladies, I hopefully don’t have to tell you that men (and women) like a gal who has a life and interests of her own, that don’t revolve around “catching a man” so she can feel valuable and safe. There’s nothing sexier than a woman with the courage and honesty to be herself, no matter what. Personally, I’d rather have a wooden leg than go through life with someone else “addicted” to me.
Enough of my ranting. For some real relationship advice, check out these video interviews with Robert Masters (Is Monogamy Worth It?) and Judith Simmer-Brown (three cheers for the Feminine Principle!).
