Matchmaker Ruffles Feathers on Here Women Talk Radio

Here Women Talk Radio

It sounded like a cat fight on Here Women Talk Radio, which aired Oct 11th, 2010. Melinda Maximova was the guest speaker and received a lot of direct hits on The John Banks Show: Bringing Man Out Of The Cave. Feathers were flying in the studio, and a flurry of post interview chat room tirades were generated. Melinda Maximova, matchmaker with Perfect Search, dating coach, and author of, “Power Shift: Shifting Gears to Catch Your Match”, is used to controversy. She represents how men really feel regarding dating and relationships - and sometimes it’s not what women want to hear.

Maximova began the interview with a jarring statement: “Many women who were beautiful in their teen years and early 20s are dumbfounded when they approach 40 and find they no longer have the same power over men as they had when they were 25. These women will heartlessly dismiss a guy for what they perceive as un-chivalrous behavior when he no longer jumps through hoops just to date her. The power balance shifts in the 40s to one of equality -- and it is a game-changing realization for many women in this age group”.

Maximova continued to outline the premise of her book, which in essence, says that 30 and 40 year old women need to learn flexibility, and realize that men do want women who are intelligent, grounded and powerful, but men want to feel adored and appreciated by women too, in the same way they made women feel in their 20s.
