The "U" word

With Valentine's Day on the horizon, it's time to think about why you're not married. Right?

Try offering this romantic line during Valentine's Day dinner: "Honey, if you don't propose to me soon, we're breaking up."

Sound silly?

MyDaily has an article about ultimatums -- as in, when to give them. An excerpt:

The key word is "threat," says Jim Duzak, the Attorney at Love. "If it's a man who's on the receiving end, he's going to feel under attack," he says, "and men go into defense mode when they're attacked, which tends to shift the attention away from the issue at hand and back at the woman."

Would you ever give an ultimatum?

The aforementioned article is informative, but my favorite part is a reader's comment:

If a guy doesnt marry you after more then a yr and a half he's using you and waiting for someone better. Throw the bum out.. You are living like a prostitute in sin...and if u die in even one of those sins unforgiven you will go to hell. Don't be a stooge.
