From a male’s perspective, just so we’re clear, I’m not quite experienced. Based on the valuable lessons that I learned from Desperate Housewives, I think I’m capable shed some light on human nature that anything regarding ass-kicking adds more stupidity if you go out on a date with a woman, because it will undermine your macho pride and diminish your male pheromone. As a result, you won’t catch a vibe or feel chemistry, or light a spark in her heart. As for the dating tips, I’m no expert, hopefully, you guys could show me some ropes.

Ultimately, faithfulness in marriage transcends the physical or emotional connection with one’s spouse; it’s also about the ability to withstand extreme situations by understanding, communication, and support. While data and facts reveal patterns in how people react to challenging circumstances, the concept of faithfulness remains subjective, relying on each couple’s unique values and perspectives.
