Ask A Woman: The 8 Best Ways To Impress A Woman
What is the best thing you can do as a guy to impress a woman? -Spencer Emily's Take: If there was a magic answer to this question, it would be – be yourself! There's no magic formula that I can give you to guarantee that a random woman will be impressed by you. We're all different so while one woman may find your jokes funny, the next will find them annoying. It depends on our moods too; one day I'm in a mood to laugh and the next I'd rather have an intellectual conversation. Some are impressed by your musical talents, intellect or sense of humor and then you have woman that are most impressed by your bank account balance or the... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: Can Commitment Scare Women Part II
Dear Bro Council, Can commitment also scare women? I am 24, work for a successful touring band, and consider myself a stand up guy. This girl in particular comes to about a show a month, always gravitates towards me, and compliments me with the nicest genuine thoughts. After 6 months of this pattern I decided to take her out to find out for sure. First date was a rock show. We enjoyed the night, talked, and danced. We mutually made a connection that wasn't based on sex. Her birthday came up a week later, so I contacted her to wish her a happy birthday and received no response. Which I found to be confusing and... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: Should I Wait For My Ex?
Dear Bro Council, I was with this girl who just got out of a 5 year relationship and we were together about a month. I don't know why I have such strong feelings for this girl I don't really so relationships but I want to be in a relationship with her. We broke up because she said she needed time to heal (5 years is a pretty long time) and that with school and her grandpa being sick she can't be in a relationship right now.. well we were talking the other day and she said she would be really happy if I waited for her and she still really likes me and when we hang out we hug a lot and are still all affectionate and stuff.. What the heck do... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: Do You Wear Revealing Clothes To Fit In A Man's World?
Do women wear revealing clothes as an attempt to fit into a mans world or bcoz u like it? If it's bcoz you like it, what is it that you like exactly? -Ramesh Emily's Take: Well, It certainly isn't because revealing clothes are comfortable! And the shoes that usually go with them are a whole other story about pain. The truth is, women wear clothes that make them feel good about themselves. Clothes and make-up are tools that help to build our confidence because they have the power to influence our impression of ourselves. Wearing glasses can make us feel smarter, wearing a suit and heels to work can make us feel more focused. For some women,... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: Did I Say Too Much, Too Early?
I met a woman on a dating site and we hit it off really well, we have a lot in common. As a matter of fact, she assertively pursued me; she took the initiative in texting, calling and making dates, which I'm not used to at all. We've been dating for three weeks now. Though she is a very attractive physically, I find I'm actually attracted to her mind, she's smart, funny and caring. We've only gone as far as second base, I've not pressed the attack physically but have eagerly responded to her advances. Anyway, if y'all haven't guessed by now, I really dig this woman and there in lies the problem I think. Recently, during a romantic night, I... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: Does A Man's Money Matter?
Why do girls like guys with money? Is it security or just the love of a lavish lifestyle? -Chuck. Emily's Take: There are two types of woman that like a man with money. One type likes a man that shows off his money because it means that he'll spend lavish amounts of money on gifts for them. This relationship is usually more about obtaining status. This is not the type of woman that you want to date. The second type of woman likes a man that has money because it shows that he is ambitious and financially responsible. He has a good job and can provide for himself while saving money for bigger things. He can afford to take her out to... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: She Has Feelings For An Ex - Part 4
Dear BC, I'm dating a girl, we're in love, and we have both stated that we want to be married and that we have never felt a love like this in our lives. We have talked extensively about marriage, our futures, and how strong our love is for each other. Now, we were moving forward with engagement (ring purchasing, talking to parents) and out of the blue, she told me that she has feelings for her ex-boyfriend and she doesn't know what that means. She said it may be nothing, but she misses him and doesn't know if that means she cares for him or just that she misses something comfortable. She said she wants to talk with him, and I don't like that... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: Arranged Marriages
We get some interesting questions in our "Ask a Woman" section, and at first we dismissed this as a joke. Then we did some research and we're fairly certain that "cousin brother" is a common term in India to refer to a male cousin. Pardon our ignorance of the culture, and read on for our thoughts on arranged marriages. My uncle and aunt are in the process of selecting a bride for my cousin brother. The thing is that, although he is handsome, and he is a dentist, and more good qualities - it seems that ladies whom his parents tried to select, turned him down. He is nice guy, and I feel he needs a good wife too. Can you give me some tips that I... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: Do Women Like Accents? (Börk, Börk, Börk!)
  Dear Sven, I totally dig that you're reading the site from Sweden. Welcome! I have to say that, in general, women like guys with accents. However, let me be entirely honest about something: I've never met anyone from Sweden, nor do I know what a Swedish accent actually sounds like. I'm sure it's not true, but my closest approximation has to be the Muppets' own Swedish Chef: Yikes. But while British, French, Spanish, Italian, and even Southern US accents each have a fairly large female fanbase here in the States, I wouldn't necessarily count Sweden out just yet. Accents aren't only attractive because of the way they sound. They... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: She's Engaged, I'm In Love, She's Not Fighting It
A woman I know has been engaged for 4 years to the father of her child. She is a bright, independent, professional.

Our relationship has been continuous for over a year and she knows I have feelings for her. She says nothing but continues the relationship. What is she doing? -Anonymous Emily's Take: She’s playing you. Here’s the first thing that I thought of - let’s say that she leaves her fiancé for you and you’re having a great... READ MORE

(Editor's Note: This is our longest question ever, but we decided to post the whole email in it's unedited glory instead of just a recap.

Ask A Woman: My First Love Came Back In My Life - What Now?
My first love has just got back in touch after 20 years to apologize for how she treated me. We have been out for a drink, and I've still got feelings for her. I've told her this and she just replied "you wouldn't want me." How should I take this? Should I stay in the friend zone and wait and see what happens? Thanks, A man trying to understand a woman Emily's Take: I think that you should stay in the friend zone for a little while and see what happens.  I also think that you know that already.  You need to decide if your feelings are for the woman you know now or the woman and relationship you remember from 20 years ago....

Ask A Woman: Is Flirting Appropriate When You're Married?
So I have a female coworker, her boyfriend is my friend and we all have lunch together sometimes. Her and I are good friends only, I'm married - and happily at that. But the point is, we text and make sexual jokes. I have introduced her to my wife, whom says she doesn't remember meeting her. Well, my wife went through my phone and took it as cheating. I understand anger a little, but we have never done anything other than text and eat lunch (only at work). My wife is talking about breaking off our marriage. Do you think she really means it? Do you think she wanted a reason to leave me anyway? -Anonymous Emily's Take: I can... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: How Long Should I Wait To Call After A Date?
How much time should I wait to call a girl back after a first date? Should I play it cool and wait 3 or 4 days or just call her and risk being over-eager? -Rich G. Emily's Take: How did the date go? If it went really well and you two talked about doing other things in the future, then by all means call her when you want. I've never seen it as "over eager" if a guy calls me the day after our date - and before I go any farther - bonus points to you for wanting to call her instead of texting! If you're having a good time and you want to go out again, call her. If you attempt to wait too many days, her weekend might... READ MORE
Ask A Woman: Should I Write Her A Song?
Dear Bro Council Women, I can play a little bit of the guitar and I'm trying to impress this girl I want to date. We're going to be at the same party this week, and I may have the opportunity to break out the guitar and sing her something. If I write her a song is that weird or romantic? We've known each other for almost a year, but we have never dated. Thank you! Elijah Dear Elijah, If it’s a gathering where it seems socially acceptable to bust out your guitar and start singing, by all means, go for it. However, while you’re sharing your talents, please make sure it’s in a communal space where anyone can enjoy it. From your letter,... READ MORE
