It means you put her in the mood. If you don't have "chemistry" you ain't gettin' none. Best advice I've ever heard and have given: Date in parallel, not serially, i.e. 2 or more women at once. Much easier to tell what will work in a LTR when you can see the differences over time and in contrast.

From what I've seen, the "yes, dear" is emasculating and leads to divorce.

Almost every woman on an online dating site talk about "Chemistry".... what does THAT mean?

who has a guest on and doesn't let the guest talk about his topic?

The woman (Terry, IIRC) who said her husband and son all share a love of puns, that dinner sometimes get delayed by contemplating the artistry of vegetables, etc.: Reminds me of the secretary on Moonlighting (silly 80's TV show).

Not sure which is worse - the lame callers and their self-serving stories, or the guest host's irritating laughter.

Let's hear from the guest about what the callers are saying!

Wow. This segment is getting really hokey and increasingly unnecessary.

Jesus god what a horror-show today. Are we seriously going to take love advice from a psychologist? How about sexual techniques from a priest? It's nice to see a segment that caters to the mentally ill who are so often overlooked by WNYC.
