Neither the boy nor his sister, two years older, looked over from the droning television. Diana told them to turn off the television and change into their swimsuits. So Diana pretended she hadn't asked them and went into the bedroom to change.

Today's great guy is someone who is confident, kind, intelligent, consistent, commitment-oriented, secure, honest, healthy, smart, fun, funny, emotionally available, able to make you a priority, interested in life, and a hard-working provider. These guys, by my estimate, are less than 5 percent of the available male population. Personal and professional experience, and uh, statistics ... Although that's a long list, unfortunately it is not a complete list. But the good news is that although 95 percent of men are like the ones listed above, we still have that allusive 5 percent we can choose from.
