Don’t Sleep with Him Yet!
Why aren’t the guys you meet interested in a meaningful relationship? Maybe you’re choosing guys who aren’t into relationships once the initial pursuit ends.

It’s okay not to want commitment. However, if your goal is commitment, you have to look at the men you’re selecting.

Why waste your time with someone you’re not really excited about? Stop being a people pleaser. Listen to your intuition. Don’t doubt your own judgment.

Sex is fun and feels great, but it may be best to wait a few dates. Conversations leading up to sex can make intercourse more pleasurable.

Listen as Dr. Nancy Lee joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to discuss dating in the modern era and how to find the relationship you seek.
