One Thing About Men

Posted by    |    May 29th, 2013 at 12:51 pm

What is that one thing about men that women simply do not understand?  The short film  by Jason Headley entitled Its Not about the Nail, captures the moment with this line in the short video:  ”Don’t try to fix it. I just need you to listen.”

YouPlus Dallas conducted its own survey of men and women of Dallas and asked the same question.  What is the one thing about men that women simply do not understand?  Take a look.

Decisions: Content Only Men Would Appreciate

Posted by    |    August 28th, 2012 at 5:00 pm

The trailer sets the stage for a series of fun examples of men becoming boys.  From time to time we will feature an episode that will reinforce women’s view of men.

Here is episode 4.  Starting with the first episode of this series made little sense.

 

Meeting in the Middle

Posted by    |    August 20th, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Have you ever asked this question while dating in Dallas?   When do relationships “begin to end?”

“Meeting in the Middle is about the story of the break up between Ellen William and Adam Barnes and the main setting is their therapist’s office.   Like many women, Ellen starts from the beginning and can recount the slightest detail, while Adam’s recollection is predictably less detailed and he starts from the very end of the relationship.

Slowly, their stories eventually “meet in the middle” revealing why they walked away from their relationship.  Watch “Meeting in the Middle” with your significant other and we hope you will have a few laughs over the silly things that seem to get in the way of relationships.

Directed by: Jason Eberly
Produced by: Tory Nelson
Written by: Nathan Hartman

Starring: Deanna Repic, Chris Betz, Kristen Kohaut, Andrea Aspacher, Abi Allwein, and Jeff Berggren.

The Gentleman Shaver

Is it the fact that there is a beautiful woman in a bra that draws the male Dallas viewer into this work by one of our favorites, Ben Briand?  Classy humor, as his beautiful partner frustrates his ability to shave.  Should any man share a bathroom with his partner anyway?

 

The Secret Adventures of Sleepy Men

Posted by    |    December 13th, 2011 at 9:41 am

If you haven’t seen The Secret Adventures of Sleepy Men, I highly recommend it.  It’s a super short short and won’t take an hour off of your life, and it will make you smile, remembering why passion, excitement, and newness are so necessary to life.  How or why we let the passion go in our everyday existence, I’m not sure.  In a quote from one of my favorite romantic comedies, “Serendipity“, “You know the Greeks didn’t write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: “Did he have passion?”.

Well, do you?  Do you dream with abandon? Do you risk being thought a fool on a regular basis?  Or do you bow down to practicality and tradition and let things run the natural, predictive course, as expected by the powers that be…

Watch The Secret Adventures of Sleepy Men and decide today to bring more passion, more ridiculous frivolity into your life.  That way, when you die, no one will even have to ask a question at all.

Back To Solitude: A New Way to Look at Relationships

Posted by    |    September 12th, 2011 at 6:00 am

The new short film “Back to Solitude” is a must-see. Actually, it’s a must-see several times before you fully realize the genius of the film’s concept.  (Unless you fancy yourself a Kubrick and totally get the abstract right off the bat.)  This sweet, clever look at the construction and deconstruction of a relationship seems as if it could have come as some sort of dream in the night to the filmmaker. Once you see how beautifully shot, written, and acted this little “film-that-could” is, you’ll want to share it. (By the way, does anyone else think the lead actress has a slight resemblance to a young Alyssa Milano?)

One of the things that struck me most about this film is the backwards nature of our relationships from time to time in our lives.  How many of us have jumped into a romantic relationship feet first, without truly knowing the other person?  I confess that I may have even said the special “three little words” once to someone I probably didn’t know ten concrete things about.  Something about the whimsy, the ridiculousness, the energy of the unknown can make us fall in love with love, instead of who the person really is.  It’s such a backwards way of falling in love, yet people even marry or have children on these sorts of whims all the time.  Imagine how differently our favorite romantic movies would be in reverse…what if Julia Robert’s character in “Pretty Woman” began as the wife of a successful businessman, only to become a prostitute in the end?  What if Giselle from “Enchanted” started in love in New York with the jaded divorce lawyer and later ended up in Andulasia marrying her prince?  Hearing our beloved love stories in reverse really makes me stop and think of how often I have skipped over the valuable stuff of life to get to “the good part”.  Bottom line?  There is something to be learned from each phase of our relationships, and whether we throw caution to the wind or do things the traditional route, it can end happily either way.

Men are NOT Mind Readers…

Posted by    |    September 30th, 2010 at 3:07 pm

So how about we stop treating them like they were?  Recently, a friend and I were at lunch, and she received an upsetting phone call.  Her contractor, a man, had decided not to finish work at one property because he wanted to get started on her other property.  This decision came conveniently after he deposited a five figure check from her.

Sitting across from her at the table, I could sense her frustration.  I observed her hand to her forehead, her wrinkled brow and noted her sighs.  She ended the conversation with, “OK” and looked at me.  I sat silent but gave her my best, “Now what” look.   This is when she said it..

“I KNOW he could tell that I was upset with him.”
