 It seems there is a new world out there, one in which men are being held accountable for what they say.

 They came in because she was sure he was having multiple affairs and not just flirting. She was no longer prepared to hear his excuses. “I am this way with everyone, it’s just me.” “I don’t mean anything by it, I’m just playing, just kidding.” Mm! I don’t think so; I don’t believe you’re just playing.

 I gave him another perspective of which I am quite certain he was aware of but certainly not willing to own. “I believe flirting for most men, and to a lesser extent women, is what I call Trolling. Trolling in fishing terms is when you throw the baited hook out into the water and hope some fish bites on the bait. Much of flirting is really trolling without having to declare oneself.

 Unfortunately, she wanted so badly to believe him, to not end the relationship, that was prepared to hear his excuses and remained committed to his “I’m just playing.” I prepared myself for a long and difficult session that I was certain would not really go anywhere.

 Today is a special day, a very exciting day. The first copies of“Communication & Relationships” are off the press and in my "hot little hands”.

 Writing a book is hard but rewarding. Seeing it in print--the look of it, the smell of it-- is so gratifying and exciting.

 I am extremely pleased and proud of how it looks and it's potential to be helpful. I know it’s just one book of tens of thousands of books, however, I hope when you read it, you will experience the insight, simplicity and value of the various concepts, then I can feel it was worth the effort.

One week today is the launch--now that is getting really exciting!
