When you get right down to it, if you're on a team your coaches and your cheerleaders have something important in common. They're both on your side, and they both want you to win. So it's really no wonder that a former Phoenix Suns cheerleader like my co-host Bee Evans would go on to become a professional coach. More specifically, Bee is a resilience coach, and one of her biggest soapboxes is 'tearing out the tags'. What's up with the human tendency to slap a label on everything and everyone? I mean, do face-value assertions and preconceived notions really serve the greater good? You can imagine the sneaky effect this kind of psychology has wrought upon relationships between men and women, let alone everyone else. Well, this episode's discussion starts with a disarming look at how Bee views her time with the Phoenix Suns nowadays compared to how she did in the moment, and it'll be no surprise that it has plenty to do with public stereotype versus objective reality. That leads to an eye-opening discussion of how we as men often place attractive women into some rather unattractive boxes, and Bee has some encouraging truth for all of us. On top of that, women tend to categorize themselves in plenty of self-limiting ways in their own right. But let's not kid ourselves, so do we as men. How does that affect our success with women? And how do all of us re-apply tags and labels to both ourselves and others as life unfolds in unexpected ways? Speaking more about tags and labels, get ready to discover how people's intentions don't necessarily have everything to do with how they classify us--or even themselves. And stay tuned for Bee's GOLDEN advice on how to intrigue and attract the most beautiful women. Here's the bottom line: in today's world of knee-jerking social media frenzy, intentions often don't match up with perceptions...and reality can seem an even more distant concept. Bee's mission is to bridge that gap in a world that could really use it. Have you talked to me for 25-minutes free yet? Sign up today and get on my calendar at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

With the recent passing of Sir Sean Connery, there couldn't be a better time to celebrate the rich legacy of Ian Fleming's James Bond, particularly as played by the OG himself. We begin with a brief discussion of Connery's legacy of smooth, debonair masculinity on film, which despite his perhaps ironic off-screen issues with women in real life stands as nothing short of iconic. So if you've never seen a Sean Connery Bond flick, where should you start? And why even watch at all? I mean, what can we gain by studying the persona of Connery's 007, from his 'alpha' demeanor to his calm, cool and collected style with women? What are the takeaways from that for our real lives, meeting and interacting with real women? Is it feasible to actually live like James Bond, even if only on some levels...and only part way? And what is it about Connery's Bond in particular that is so magnetic to women? Speaking of women, what makes 'Bond Girls' in particular so exotic, alluring and downright desirable? And on the other hand, is James Bond even 'boyfriend material'? Perhaps the most fun is had toward the end of this episode, where Bruce and I talk about Bond villains, particularly the infamous Ernst Blofeld. What makes him so slimy and, well...the opposite of attractive to women? It couldn't be that he's a cat lover, could it? Why not find your own mystique, and transform your fortunes with women in the process. It all starts with a 25-minute intro call. Get on my schedule for free at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

Well, now I've done it. I went and got a creativity coach as a guest co-host. His name is Jeff Leisawitz from Seattle, and you're in for a show that's guaranteed by its very nature to be fun, entertaining AND interesting. To start off, we all know it's not exactly easy to simply be creative at the drop of a hat. Therefore, we define creativity in, well...some truly creative terms. That quickly leads us to the sobering conclusion that despite what many think, creativity isn't really an optional 'luxury item'. It's absolutely integral to a life well-lived. But fear not, Jeff has an elegant way to tune your mind up for greater levels of creativity...all centered around one basic mindset shift. Here's a hint: plenty of us need to have a more creative vision of creativity itself. Is it really true there's no such thing as an original thought? What is it that separates mere talent from truly legendary status? And on a far less lofty level, how does Jeff coax guys to start thinking 'out of the box' for once? What happens when crisis hits and we're forced out of our comfort-familiarity zone and into creative mode? It seems like there's one big hurdle virtually everyone has to clear first, and we'll call it out. And here's a good question...is creativity feminine in nature? And speaking of women, how does your creativity directly contribute to living the exciting life that inevitably attracts women? Feel like it's time to think out of the box for yourself and come up with new and creative ways to get the right woman into your life? Talk to me about it for free when you get on my calendar at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

The idea for this episode on dying well--or dying gallantly and with dignity, if you will--has been on my radar screen for quite a while. The issue was finding the right guest to make it as powerful a show as it deserves to be. Enter my new friend Larry Indiviglia. First off, Larry is a United States Naval Academy graduate, so he knows plenty about duty, honor and sacrifice. On top of that, however, he had the particularly notable experience just this year of meeting a woman who was dying of cancer, falling in love, and being by her side until the very end. He has written a book about that experience, and in this show shares his unique and powerful thoughts of a life well-lived to the very last breath. So for starters, what exactly does it mean to die well? Despite the archetypal theme of going out in a blaze of glory, is that reasonable--or even possible? Why are such themes in stories like Gran Torino and Breaking Bad so incredibly fascinating and alluring to us as men? Is it necessarily true that we die alone, or can others around us contribute to a life well ended? What are the powerful and perhaps unexpected factors that present themselves when we know we have a limited time left? How can our minds play tricks on us in devious ways as we fantasize about our own deaths? Is that even healthy? Did Tim McGraw get it right when he exhorted us to 'live like we're dying'? We'll even tackle perhaps the scariest question of all on this subject...how to die well if your body or even your mind betrays you in old age. John Donne may have noted centuries ago that the bell will toll for thee, but he also penned 'death be not proud'. In the stunning conclusion to this particularly unforgettable and powerful episode, will spell out exactly what that means. Make the most of the one life we're given and invite the greatest woman you've ever met to join you. Talk to me for free when you get on my schedule at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

Get ready for an empowering, uplifting show at precisely the time in history when we could all use it. My long-time friend and all-around nice lady Iris Benrubi joins me to talk about personal power. In particular, we're revealing and discussing those little hidden places in your life where you can actually DO something. But to start off, we wonder aloud why so many people seem to actively want to retreat into victimhood, despite the negative impact that has on confidence and self-esteem. It's no wonder that the idea of personal agency all starts with figuring out what we actually want and how to get it, right? And is it true you're going to end up exactly like your parents, no matter what? Could it be true that doing the exact opposite of what you're conditioned to could be just as disempowering as simply falling in line with groupthink? How does the tangle between opportunity and consequences affect our psychological mindset? Do we really have to hit rock bottom and lose all that makes us comfortable before bouncing back in a way that's truly in alignment with our hopes and dreams? Next, discover how there are two ways most men are handling the COVID-19 crisis. Which guy are you? What is the secret to deriving strength from life situations that would wither others? How can you begin to feel truly powerful at attracting and interacting with women, even if you've gone your entire life thus far without? And how can you acquire the power to get the RIGHT woman in your life, once and for all? Let's talk 25 minutes for free about how to get you to the next level in your career, lifestyle and--of course--in your relationships with women. Get on my calendar at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

Okay, here it is. We don't talk about marriage very often on this show. Simply put, it's a topic that tends to polarize the audience. Nevertheless, you really can't expect to cover all of the bases when it comes to dating and relationships without ever addressing it. Enter my guest Amy Schoen, who specializes in the field of marriage readiness. Together she and I decided that a particularly fun and useful angle would be to talk about what it means to be 'marriage material'. Now, to be sure this pretty much aligns with the concepts of 'boyfriend material' and 'girlfriend material'. So then, this show offers equal opportunity visibility into what indicates long-term potential for either a man or a woman. Interestingly enough, even when women aren't particularly looking for a serious relationship, they still tend to be super-attracted to men with qualities that indicate long-term potential. Perhaps weirdly, that is even often the case when they're looking for a quick fling. So do I have your attention yet? What you're about to hear is all-important for any man who want's to enjoy greater success with women. Count on a wealth of knowledge, wisdom and tips that over-deliver...turning you into a veritable magnet for feminine attraction. Fall is here, and the world is opening up. Talk to me free for 25 minutes about how to create your own 'new normal', featuring the most fulfilling relationships with women ever. https://mountaintoppodcast.com

My guest is best known for his work on introversion, but the topic of this show is sure to hit the target regardless of your personality type. At its essence, it's all about how to be influential. So what's the right way and the wrong way to do that? I mean, isn't attention seeking for insecure, needy guys and self-promotion for douches? And hold on...isn't this whole desire to be seen, known, remembered somewhat narcissistic at its very core? Well, none of that is necessarily true. That can only mean there's an altogether better and more effective way to be truly memorable, which Nick and I discuss in sometimes alarming, at times unexpected, but always encouraging detail. And let's not kid ourselves. Even if you're not entirely motivated to conquer the world and leave your mark on a grand scale, that relatively low-key lifestyle you're content with may even be at risk if you fail to be influential in any measurable way. So then, what are the first outward steps to having more of an impact on those around us? Prepare to be amazed by how simple, easy and non-threatening this and the ensuing steps really are...and how major the social payoff for following them really is. And most importantly of all, of course, what does this all have to do with being a 'big four' man who attracts women as effectively as he can?

Everyone has heard about how men have a feminine side and women a masculine one. How true is that? And if it's the case, how does the concept typically manifest itself? Is it a good thing, or is it something we would be better off minimizing the effects of? And wait a minute...are the traits and behaviors that we somewhat automatically consider masculine or feminine really such, or are they simply human? What if all of this is just a social construct to begin with? But what if it isn't? Then what? Does that change the whole perspective? I mean, if masculinity is 'toxic' as we're led to believe nowadays, why are so many women trying to act like men? What if we all migrated toward the feminine instead? But can't there be such a thing as 'toxic femininity' in that case? After all, is femininity always 'soft' and inherently innocuous? And what of the idea that masculine dominance is sexy to women...how can that be? How come there are tomboys but no such thing as a tomgirl? What do single moms have to do with all of this? Stay tuned for the trait we've never really considered feminine before, but just might be...and we make a solid case for it. But all the while we're the same couple of dorks you know and love, who may or may not have knocked back a couple before hitting 'record' on this episode. Find the right relationship or dramatically improve the one you're already in. It all starts with a phone visit with us, free for 25 minutes. https://mountaintoppodcast.com

Fresh off of his Oval Office interview with The President, author and editor of America's 1st Freedom Magazine Frank Miniter returns to the show for a deep dive into how to rise above all the fearmongering going on in today's media. As Kipling wrote, a real man keeps his head when all about him are losing theirs, and this episode gets to the heart of that matter. To begin with, what exactly is it that's driving a culture of non-stop fearmongering these days? Can it really be only about the election...and will it therefore stop after November 3rd? What decidedly human element is nearly always lacking in a culture of fearmongering, yet acts as the perfect antidote for it? How can you be a flat-out disruptive force against rampant fear right now in a way that will make women love, love, love you for it? And how about fear itself...what is it? Is it binary? Should we learn how to deal with it and perhaps harness it, or eliminate it altogether? You'll hear what famous men of courage have said about that in the past. So what's the actual process to developing the habit of courage? And what's the real-world payoff for doing so? The even better question is what are the syndromic consequences to our manhood if we don't? Also, what can we do to recognize even subtle fearmongering and act accordingly before we're entrapped by it? Stay tuned for the absolute silver bullet for staying out of the fearmongering fray, and the proper response to fear-based trolls. There's a whole world of valuable resources for you and a way to schedule 25 minutes with me for free when you visit https://mountaintoppodcast.com

Sep 18, 2020

Far too much conversation nowadays has been reduced to ad hominem name calling, especially on social media. There's no question it's pedantic, anti-masculine and therefore decidedly unattractive to women. Nevertheless, it seems like emotions are running at a fever pitch and sober judgment is going out the window. In the midst of all that, how do we secure our rightful place as mature, civil men of character? And what can we do to reclaim it if we've found ourselves slipping lately? Well, my guest Ed Wynn is best known for his political commentary, but his latest book We The People gets to the heart of the subject du jour. So what's the best way to set the tone for a civil conversation from the very start? How can you guard against falling into the trap of sneaky internet trolls? Why is it people nowadays have turned everything political, are so dogmatic and judge different views so harshly? Has narrative-driven cognitive dissonance really replaced rational logic? Is it really possible to 'choose truth over facts'? How do refined, evolved men take personal responsibility and affect change in the world rather than either claiming victimhood and/or alienating everyone else in the process? Ultimately, it's all part of unraveling the mystery of why younger women love older men so much. Be a better man, get better women, enjoy a more fulfilling career and go on more magnificent adventures. It all starts with a free 25-minute phone call with me personally.

Sep 11, 2020

Let's face it, everything about the year 2020 thus far has compelled most people to hide in their homes for fear of going out in public. My guest today is the author of Live Great Lifestyle and The Lean Body Guide, and his number one battle these days is helping men just like you and I to stand up and get back out there. So then, we know the obvious reasons why so many of us have become homebodies these days, but what are the sneakier, more subtle ones? For starters, have you put on the 'lockdown 15' and want to get rid of it? What are some ways you can take back both your physical and psychological well-being? And how do you do that if you've lost your job, let alone have the time, money or wherewithal to figure out where to meet women nowadays? What if 2020 has delivered a major hit to your confidence in general? What kind of havoc does that wreak on your mental toughness...sometimes in dangerously subtle ways? How might this year be wearing on you such that you're less attractive to women? So what it really comes down to is, are you going to view 2020 as something that happened TO you, or something that happened FOR you? The good news is you still have about three and a half months to get it right. And yes, you can start by talking to me 1-on-1 about it.

Sep 4, 2020

My guest is one of those guys who had the grit and determination to go 'all in' on his dreams, laying it all on the line to become a pro basketball player. Even more fascinating is the story of how he eventually found his larger calling of empowering young athletes to greatness, while inspiring all of us to find our game and be at the top of it. Now, if you're like me, basketball isn't exactly your most marketable skill. But no worries, Dre Baldwin's message will motivate you to take your game to the next level, whatever it is. So for sure, we talk hoops some to get the show rolling, but you know how sneaky I am. It takes about a minute and a half before we're tying it all back to having the heart of a champion, overachieving and breaking apart any roadblocks standing in our way. That conversation had to start with none other than Mike, of course. What was it about MJ that was so transcendent in terms of redefining what it means to be at the top of one's game? As for Dre himself, how did he go from pro basketball player to motivational influencer? And how can you be at the pinnacle of your game, whatever it is...even if it's not basketball? Dre has four key principles for you. And of course, we talk at length about how all of this applies to improving your relationships to women...including Dre's surprising take on 'faking it 'til you make it', and the secret prerequisite to true confidence. Fall is here, and it's time for you to attract the right woman into your life. It all starts with a visit to https://mountaintoppodcast.com

When my guest Jed Jurchenko first got married, he assumed everything would go wonderfully because, well...that's how it's supposed to work, right? Little did he know he was in for a total train wreck. Emerging from that rocky first marriage, Jed sought to understand how to build a relationship around mutual trust, a sane mindset and solid communication skills. Indeed, it's not that couples won't ever disagree, but what is the best way to handle conflict when it arises? Well, for starters you'll discover the number one best philosophy for virtually eliminating hateful, spiteful arguments...and it might not be what you think. What's the best way to effectively resolve an argument, and how exactly do you know when it has indeed been resolved? What are examples of 'atomic bombs' that should be avoided at all costs during relational conflict? If you have a long history of being 'Mr. Nice Guy' in relationships, what are the ramifications of that? And how can you proactively guard against future arguments even as you go about your day-to-day relationship? What is the golden secret that makes arguing virtually impossible? Is it really all about communication, or is there a more foundational element that must be addressed first? Just for good measure, you'll hear the powerful phrase that really gets to the heart of the matter when things get crazy. Why do women resort to nagging their men, anyway? And obviously, we'd be remiss if we didn't talk about COVID-induced stress. 2020 is still rolling on. How are you doing? Take control over your 'new normal'.

What do you get when you have a guy who looks like Tyler Childers but talks with a Mid-Atlantic accent? Someone completely different than you're used to, and that's my main man and fellow dating coach for men Ryan Black. As it turns out, he and I are both getting asked the same question over and over nowadays, and that's how in the world to meet women given the present state of things. Well, you have questions, and we have answers...starting with a look at how the situation is both radically different from AND exactly the same as it ever was. How has the COVID-19 lockdown impacted our dating lives in unexpected ways? Speaking of which, how does wearing a mask really, truly affect approaching, meeting and attracting women? And more importantly, what do you DO about it? For sure, the pandemic isn't exactly over just yet, but what are the real reasons why women seem to be shying away from actually meeting in-person, even as the world has started opening back up? You can absolutely expect real, practical ways to start inviting more women in you life in the here and now, plus some bold predictions about what the near future may look like. By the way, how does online dating factor into all of this? Plus, get my hot take on who has the world's worst Twitter feed...by far. What will your 'new normal' look like when all the dust clears?

Returning guest Helena Nista is a sex therapist, tantra practitioner and author of Legendary Lover. She was a major hit with you guys the first time she was on due to her straightforward yet happy-go-lucky style, all the while absolutely free of shame while exuding pure class and femininity. That's a winning combination, so I invited her back this time to discuss how we as men should talk to women about orgasms...then actually give them all they can handle. What better place to start such a conversation than with the idea of 'mental foreplay'? Why is it that women can talk so naturally about sexual matters, yet most men freak out over it? Should we even talk about sex at all? Why not just make a move when the time is right? But wait a minute...when exactly IS the right time? Dial up the flirtation, thrill women to the moon and back, and make them come back for more. Helena spills all the secrets, and is as charming as ever as she does. And how about when we're actually in the bedroom? How can we guard against 'failing to deploy'? What different kinds of orgasms do women have, and how do we find out what they like? Also, discover how to turn even the most 'alpha' woman into a doe-eyed sex kitten. Is it true women instinctively want to pleasure us when we pleasure them? Plus, you'll be treated to a fascinating conversation about the almost supernatural elements of sexual pleasure that are rarely, if ever, talked about in the open (this even caught Helena off-guard). Fair warning...you may need a cold shower after this one, so take a deep breath before clicking 'play'. In order to improve your sex life, you have to have the right woman in it to begin with.

Can you believe we've never covered this topic in all the years of doing this show? But my guest Marcus Oakey from the UK is absolutely the right man for the job, given that he has been a professional charisma coach for over a decade now. So what is charisma, anyway? And why is it so elusive? Well, whatever it is, we can agree that those who exhibit it tend to do so effortlessly, or at least seemingly so. Are there different types of charisma? Can you fine-tune your persona to be uniquely charismatic? Is it possible to be charismatic without having to be the life of the party? What is 'The Unbreakable Law'? What's up with the term 'is-ness'? And what does Marcus mean by being in a constant state of 'maybe'? What is the key difference between power and strength? How do regular, normal people respond to an unusually charismatic social interaction in unexpected ways? And hold on...what's the difference between being socially advanced beyond most people and downright creepy? How do we get to that unconsciously competent level of 'is-ness' rather than 'outsourcing our thinking', as Marcus would put it? And most of all, how can we find the wherewithal to build our own charisma through changes in mindset and habits? Autumn is coming, and it's time to establish what your 'new normal' will be.

For the first time ever, I welcome two guests on the show at once. The Collinses (aka SiMalCo) are living proof of what happens when two people who are way too smart and educated for their own good find love together. They’re serial entrepreneurs, world travelers, polymaths and—most importantly for our purposes at hand—commenters on life, sex and relationships. So the topic du jour came to pass based on the idea expressed in their book of how humans use lures to attract a mate. Buckle up, because the pace of this episode is the fastest we’ve seen in a long time, and we cover an immense amount of ground...often hilariously. Why is dating like sales? (including a GOLDEN tip for up-and-coming salesguys) How does the ‘fishing expedition’ change when we’re after casual relationships vs. something long-term? Is luring someone primarily with physical attractiveness really a good strategy? Meanwhile, why do so many men get lured in and hooked by women they’re not even attracted to? If you can relate, this episode will get you ‘off the hook’. What was up with Simone’s ‘breakup deadline’? What does the ev psych idea of ‘sneaky f*uckers’ have to do with all of this? Plus...outgoing introverts, fishing online, and the Devil’s Threesome. Attract the right woman for you once and for all.

The truth is that being successful with women comes down in large part to learned skill. Some men have it, some don't...and even fewer are willing to fight for the right to acquire those skills. And there's no 'easy button'. Like me, my guest Darren Fuji wasn't exactly born with a the silver spoon of sexual attractiveness in his mouth. But he indeed has become an absolute machine with women over the years, culminating in his fantastic current relationship with a professional model. What clear advantages do most men have compared to most women in cultivating the skills of attraction? What are some of the big lies many men are told about their likelihood of becoming more attractive to women? And why do we now live in a society where everyone seems to want everything handed to them? Certainly the few and the proud will rise to the occasion of putting in the blood, sweat and tears to truly achieve in this life, but what are the perhaps unexpected rewards to doing so? What has laziness, lack of ambition and flat-out complacency done to the prospects for an optimistic 'new normal' from a social perspective? What about millennials...is their level of personal discipline and work ethic really below the standard set by previous generations? And by God, what must the old-timers from those previous generations think of ALL of us? Most of all, what can we do to grit out the tough first steps and establish real determination and work ethic in our lives, especially when it comes to getting a great woman?

I first found out about my guest when I stumbled across his recent conversation with Scott Adams of Dilbert fame. Hotep is an independent thinker who speaks his mind, while being able to back up every word of what he says with logical sense. He has a long history of serial entrepreneurship, marketing for high-profile performers and various other pursuits, but as it turns out his curious mindset has also led to a lot of thought on women and masculinity. So for starters, what's the key to staying sane and focused in the midst of the crazy news cycles we're confronted with these days? How does Hotep measure and evaluate all the information? Why is it nearly impossible to have a real, actual conversation on Twitter anymore? Hotep talks frequently about 'reading the room'...how does that pertain to expressing bold, authentic thought? Is getting news from so-called 'unbiased' sources really the way to get down to the bottom of what's going on in the world? How can we as men step up and be bold in the face of cancel culture? What is causing so many men to fear and even grow bitter toward women, and what is the cure? What is a 'nice guy's' real problem when it comes to women? Enjoy nonstop real talk on subjects most podcasts are afraid to touch...and it's all about mutual respect, empowering all of us to make a stand for our truth and what matters most to us.

Well, here we go...it's the long overdue show on sexy motherhood. And yes, I completely understand the very premise is up for debate. That's why I brought in the hottest mommy I know, none other than my wife Emily. Curiously enough, the first direction we went in was debating the 'dad bod' and 'mom bod' factor. Do we as men really desire that rail-thin supermodel body, or do many of us prefer a woman shaped more like she's had a baby or two? In addition to what they look like, how do hot moms really turn us on? Is how we act and carry ourselves as dads even more profound an issue when it comes to turning those hot moms on? And how about 'boy moms'...what's the deal with them, and why are they so cool? How does life experience and parental obligation contribute to a particular affinity between single moms and single dads? When the idealistic 'halo' of childless singlehood fades, is that actually a good thing for a budding relationship? Why do so many dating coaches for men warn against dating single moms? Does that advice apply equally to single dads? Are there actually men and women out there who prefer single parents, even if they don't have any kids themselves? And God help us...what's the deal with 'dad jokes' and the certain women who love them?

My guest Todd Kashdan is the guru of curiosity, having literally written the book on it. As a college professor, one would think he would count his fellow highly-educated people as naturally curious...but is it really always the case? How is being curious good for your social life and your attractiveness to women? What are the perhaps unexpected benefits of adopting a curious lifestyle? Meanwhile, is there a darker side of curiosity that few people ever dare to talk about? Moreover, is there a dark side of YOU that you should be more curious about? How is curiosity--or lack thereof--tied to stress levels? Can you actually point to objective trends in today's society that are stealing our curious nature away from us? And how have media outlets capitalized upon that to get clicks, build their audience and even further an agenda? How come kids don't seem to be as curious as they used to be, and how can we instill more curiosity within them? But is it even worth being so curious when we're never going to get all the answers as long as we live? Have you talked to me for 25 minutes FREE yet? Let's talk about your plan for greatness.

When his book Die Fat Or Get Tough came out, it told the truth about getting in shape that people weren't trying to hear. And that's really only one example of how Steve Siebold's work boldly addresses mental toughness in a visceral, yet engaging way that we as men can genuinely relate to. Since Steve's name came up on the show a couple of episodes ago, I reached out to him and decided to have him on to go over his latest work, along with some of his golden gems from past books. Have you ever noticed that whether it's in sports or in life, the one with the most mental toughness generally wins? Certainly, with all of the craziness happening in the world today, mental toughness is necessary just to hang in there. But what does having mental toughness even mean? And how does it directly affect your success on the field, in your career and yes...in your relationships with women? How does 'microwave thinking' defeat mental toughness? What does all of this have to do with financial success? In what ways are we being suckers in life, perhaps without even realizing it? How can mental toughness transform you into a master negotiator? What is the relationship between grit and mental toughness? How can we raise our kids to be gritty, and what makes mental toughness so crucial to successful relationships?

My guest co-host believes men not only are as emotional as women are, but it's important to our masculinity to feel deeply. Don't get that confused with being an 'emo' soy boy, however. For starters, GS describes what a heart-felt relationship with a modern woman who is strong yet feminine looks like. But wait...who is this 'strong woman' anyway, and what is she like? Whoever she is, she's only going to be powerfully attracted to a masculine man. So to that end, GS outlines three ways to be fully masculine without being an unemotional robot about it. How can we respond to women rather than merely reacting? What do women mean when they say they want a man who 'listens'? And what in the world is being 'emotionally available' all about? Why do women start nagging us? And what's even scarier in a relationship than that, although few of us even recognize it when it's happening? How does providing true safety to a woman contrast with the 'alpha model' of masculinity? How can men be emotional while still being conscious of how they're affecting feminine attraction and devotion? So do real men shed tears, or not? And what does that have to do with the larger question of how to be a man of depth?

So what's your personality type? Introverted? Extroverted? Thinking vs. feeling? Whatever...because my guest believes all the Enneagram and Myers-Briggs tests you have ever taken are only marginally better than the horoscope in the newspaper, at best. His ideas are positively iconoclastic, but he's done his homework and shares insights into developing your personality on YOUR terms that will make you stand up and cheer. The first place he drops the hammer is on the concept of personality versus identity. Are you really stuck being the person you've always been, even if you would really rather be someone different? I mean, what if 'just be yourself' isn't working? And furthermore, what if self-help doesn't work either? Does the 'body positive' crowd have your best interests at heart? Why exactly is it that people who lack vision are often so bored and depressed in the present? And on the other hand, how can our loftiest goals actually hamstring us from thriving? What happens when larger societal influences compel us to be a certain way or do certain things? How does 'learned helplessness' inhibit personal growth? How in the world are we supposed to figure ourselves out if we don't use standardized tests to guide us? And here's the clincher...how do our experiences with women shape our identity, and therefore our personality? Plus, even though I've been quiet about it until now, you'll get the story on how I shed over 50 pounds and reinvented my health.

It's been nearly twelve years, but Alex Allman of Revolutionary Sex is back to cover one of the most confounding subjects possible in the world of relationship advice. That's of course, true love. What is it? What does it mean to be 'in love'? Just importantly, what does it NOT mean? And when do you know you're actually there? Well, the truth is people may have different representations and definitions for true love, but there really is some substance to it...despite how nebulous and over-used the word itself is in the English language. Alex kicks the discussion off with some deep hippie stuff from the Grateful Dead, before carefully explaining how love isn't just something to aspire to, it's something you also build...and do. He's also careful to note the spiritual aspect of romantic love, even though what he says may not be what you're expecting. And you'll definitely not hear the same old jingoistic dating advice battle cries here. To that end, we define the difference between love and infatuation. We also talk about how to make sure who you throw your heart to is going to catch it without breaking it...assuming that's possible. Is true love really a 'ball and chain', or the opposite? How do masculinity and femininity--in combination with maturity--pave the way for true love to happen? What meta-level impact does solid self-esteem have on real love that goes the distance? Is love just as much about timing as it is finding the right person? We're living in difficult times, but you're not alone. Call me for 25-minutes free.
