"He reminds us that there is an art to being a gentleman vs. a man, something all men should acquire..."
Passionate Ben offers the male perspective to the ever so complicated female psyche that he regularly shares with his ?Angels? so that we have a greater understanding of the opposite sex.
He recognizes that many women out there are confused, disrespected and hurt but with the insights and information he has to share, there is hope for us women. He reminds us that there is an art to being a gentleman vs. a man, something all men should acquire and all women deserve.
If you haven?t already, I highly recommend that both men and women take the time to listen to what Ben has to say because there is always something important to take from it.
In society today, it?s rare to find someone who has a true understanding of what we, as women, want and deserve.
Ben refers to us women as Angels but maybe Ben is really the Angel, here to spread his gospel to both the men and women out there so that we can learn to deal with each other and have relationships that prosper, rather than fail.
Thank you Ben for sharing your knowledge with the world. I can only hope that someday I?m lucky enough to find someone that has graduated from the School of Ben!

"That?s why you need the kind of information you can only get from Passionate Ben..."
You?ve just received an opportunity to purchase a brand new, high-end sports car. Like any good consumer, you want to get as much information as you can about the model that?s caught your eye.
How reliable is it? How temperamental is it? Is it going to be in the shop all the time? How fast will it go? How far will it go? How far can you push it before it balks and stalls on you?
All of these are very important questions! You need accurate answers and the most current information available. Are you going to get your data from someone who bought a similar model 20 years ago? No! That model may be worn out and broken down by now!
Are you going to try to get answers from someone who owns a Moped? Of course not! You can?t compare a Moped to a high-end sports car! You need to get your information and opinions from an expert. Someone who knows a LOT about all the current makes and models. Someone who can give you honest answers about the things that matter.
Now?how many times have women been compared to high-end sports cars? You know -- ?The British ones are so unreliable?, or, ?The ride on that one is too soft; I need one with a firmer suspension.?
That?s why you need the kind of information you can only get from Passionate Ben. He?s not basing his information on yesterday?s model. The information he has about relating to women (on any level) is unbiased, thorough and may even surprise you!
Just like making a major purchase, you don?t want to get into a relationship with a woman if you don?t know all the facts. So don?t go into a situation blind ? let Passionate Ben show you how to safely navigate those dangerous curves ahead.

"Men say you never know what a woman is thinking or feeling, well here's your chance...if you dare to take it..."
O.K, so here it goes.......Why wouldn't you?? There are a very wide range of women giving Ben their feedback, on a wide variety of topics. Men say you never know what a woman is thinking or feeling, well..............here's your chance..if you dare to take it. It can only benefit from knowledge, and prosper from it!
Any areas that men are ashamed or embarrased to talk about with someone seem to all covered here, without a man or woman having to disclose anything they don't want, just have to read, or listen........so why would you not jump on an opportunity to better whatever your lacking in ALL of your relationships, or if you have good fortune, you can share your knowledge to help, educate and inspire others!
Women will talk.......you just need someone open minded there to listen...really listen...with their egos and opinions at home.. And for that we have Ben...Thanks Ben! Hope my testimonial helps you out!!

"The Best thing for you and your woman (and if you don't have one your future woman) would be to get this book and listen to the things Ben has to say..."
I am as Ben calls it one of his angels and it is great that if you ask Ben a question he will give you his opinion good or bad and he is a real swetheart and you men would learn a hell of a lot from him.
Because he asks what woman wants and thinks and he letting you men that don't know a whole lot when it comes to us woman how to treat us and how to act around us and what to do how to and what not to do to make woman the happiest women (angel) around.
I'm sure that is the best thing that a man can ever get is to learn about woman from a man and have the knowledge that a man can only dream of so I hope that you take this and know that the best thing for you and your woman (and if you don't have one your future woman) would be to get this book and listen to the things Ben has to say because he is a man that knows a whole lot about us women thanks for taking the time to read this.

"He is by far one of the most insightful, down to earth, and incredible gentlemen I have ever had the chance to meet and get to know..."
Ben is not only someone I consider a true friend, but he is by far one of the most insightful, down to earth ,and incredible gentlemen I have ever had the chance to meet and get to know. Both on a friendship and more personal level.
After coming out of a horrific marriage and divorce, needless to say, I was not one who had much faith or hope in the male gender. After many long conversations, emails, letters, and then eventually meeting...Ben has become a gentleman I have learned to trust and value his opinion.
He took the time to show this gal, that there truly are ..."real" men still kicking out in the world. His in site into Women, his outlook on relationships and beliefs, carry through not only in his words, but into his life... He is a man that walks the talk!

"He is very knowledgable about women and how they should be treated and loved..."
?The reason i think guys should listen to ben is... he is very knowledgable about women and how they should be treated and loved. he knows a women should be loved from whats on the inside not whats on the outside. all women of all shapes and sizes and ages. he very wise for his age about what women need and want. wish there were more men like him around.

"THIS MAN KNOWS WOMEN!!! Every man should listen to him because lord knows enough of them need his help..."
I will be the first to admit that I was skeptical about what he was doing, and what his motives were but my doubts were soon tossed aside when he not only responded to every email I had sent him, but he actually took the time to give a detailed response to me.
This man is not only attractive and funny, but he is brilliant. I was not expecting the kind of insight and detail that he gave me and he never ceases to amaze me. I am always impressed with the topics he chooses to discuss, and the beauty that he shows in each of his blogs and radio segments that he posts.
THIS MAN KNOWS WOMMEN!!! Every man should listen to him because lord knows enough of them need his help! I look forward to the day that the whole world knows about him, and his voice becomes a roar for women around the world.
Janelle Ziegler, Age 24
"No man has ever been born knowing all about women, or understanding them..."
Why Passionate Ben? No man has ever been born knowing all about women, or understanding them.Many men go their whole lives through, and never understand. For some, it?s by choice, they don?t care to understand.
For others, they do make the effort and manage a certain degree of success and often go on to achieve a happy healthy long term relationship with a special woman.
Then, there are those that just can?t seem to get the information that would help them really connect with the female world in a meaningful way, that would allow them to either meet that woman they can spend their life with, or enrich the relationship they already have.
For those that are seeking a better relationship with their lady, or seek to meet the right lady, Passionate Ben has the hand up they need. Since men are often very visual, they think in visual terms and most often with logic, not emotions.
Most, not all, women think and feel with their emotions, they have to, otherwise it?s difficult to nurture and raise children and the thousands of other emotional needs women are called upon to satisfy.
Passionate Ben, being both a mans man and having made that emotional connection to the passionate side women have, has the insight and the research to back up the advice he gives.
It comes not from books, but right from the source. Women themselves! As a woman, why do I look forward to seeing what he has to say, or read what he has written?
Passionate Ben has taken the time to make it his mission to know about women, what makes them tick on an emotional plane. Charting his course based on the feedback he gets from women of all ages and races, he talks to us on a one on one basis, changing direction according to the directions the answers take him in.
Why would you want to listen to this Passionate Ben, a Texan with tattoos, when there a hundreds of books on the shelves, movies and talk shows, just flip the channel? What?s so special about Passionate Ben, that you want to listen or buy anything from him?
First, we?re listening intently, with smiles on our faces, and heads nodding! Some of the tidbits Ben has discovered are what men really need to know! For example, that most women want to be treated special, not like a servant.
Women have different emotional needs than men, and he?s discovered how to both bring them out, and how to satisfy them. It?s not the deeds, it the needs! It?s not what?s said, but how it?s said-women are sensitive to how things are said and done.
Passionate Ben though interviews has learned from women, what needs aren?t being met in their lives and why. Some men treat their cars with more tenderness than their woman!
Passionate Ben has his finger on the female pulse and knows the rise and fall, what makes it race, what makes it flat line. You?d be wise to read and listen to what he has to say, if you have a woman in your life you?d like to understand better.
Or maybe you?ve yet to meet the right woman, and there?s something missing you can?t put your ?finger?on? Passionate Ben has the ear of women from all walks of life, the women are talking and listening to his esteem building bulletins, and broadcasts. He?s in the epicenter of the female world; wouldn?t you want to be part of that inner circle?

"He has the best intentions for women that I have ever seen..."
All people should listen to Passionate Ben. He has the best intentions for women that I have ever seen. He is here to help us "Angels" ( as he likes to refer to us women of the world) understand guys, men, gentlemen, and situations that happen to us in relationships, marriage, sex or whatever we have a question about.
I believe that he is not here to look for a ton of women to be his friends or to have any type of sexual relations with any of us "Angels". I can usually tell by a persons voice and he is truly a nice man. He has loads of information that make a ton of sense to me and has actually helped me in some situations with my own relationship.
I think that Passionate Ben is and will be an excellent source of information for both men and women around the world for advice. Ranging like I said, from marriage and relationshp advice, sex questions, relationship cheating and abuse, business questions, a ton of advice.
These are not answers that he answers by things that have happened in his life ( some of them, yes are examples), but he studies and still studies, researches constantly all of the subjects that I listed. I would refer him to anyone with questions on these subjects.
He is nothing by nice to all of us "Angels", but does let you know if you as a woman are being the one taken advantage of someone or are being not so nice to our Passionate Ben. I gave Ben a chance and believe that everyone should give Ben a chance. He has a lot of good stuff to say and he is the nicest man I have met yet.

"So guys listen up, "If you want to know what we women are thinking..."
Well what can I say about Ben. It is more like what can't I say. Ben is every woman's dream man. So you are thinking, "What does this have to do with a book?" My answer is plenty. Ben is a guy who actually listens to women!
You are thinking, "So what if he does". I say, "Because he does, he knows what he is talking about". Ben has been in contact with literally hundreds of thousands of women.
We all feel we can tell him things because we know he will listen. So guys listen up, "If you want to know what we women are thinking, listen to Ben he knows!"
He has been researching this book for years and he gets hundreds of emails every day. We women tell him what we like, what we don't like and what we want in a guy. So guys you should get his book if you really want to know what we think.

"Ben knows ladies! Most of your guys out there just don't know what a woman wants or needs..."
Okay, so you guys out there are wondering -why- you should listen to Passionate Ben? Well, there are about a million reasons, but I'll try to sum it up as much as I can. Mainly: Ben knows ladies!
Most of your guys out there just don't know what a woman wants or needs. Your main idea is to be macho, dish out the compliments, and act jealous (at least...that's usually the most we can hope for). Then of course there are those of you who...just don't have a clue.
Passionate Ben can help you all by giving yout he simple advice you need to be just what a woman needs (i.e. a man). He knows how to treat a woman, how to talk to a woman, how to be sensitive to a woman, and how to be honest with a woman.
Passionate Ben is a good man here to teach guys how to become good men, and he does it well. So from woman to guy, listen to Passionate Ben. He's got the answers to what we want. Trust me.

"This is a guy with a six sense about women and gets responses from women all over the world..."
?Wake up guys! This goes out to all of you, whether you are dating, married, single, friends with benefits or whatever, you are in desperate need of help when it comes to advice on women because let me tell you and I think all women would agree you don?t have a clue!
So let me clue you in on a little secret, my friend Passionate Ben?s outlook and advice on women. This is a guy with a six sense about women and gets responses from women all over the world on a daily basis on what a women wants, on dating, how a women wants to be treated, and also gets personal experiences from women that go into his book and radio broadcast.
I am just asking you to take the 5 minutes that you would normally be stroking your "ego" to listen to Passionate Ben, trust me it will be worth every minute of it.?
Brandy Moreno, Age 33
"After all every Angel should have a guiding light. And I think we've found one in Passionate Ben..."
Who ever thought that you could find a great guy, such as Passionate Ben, for us all to seek guidance and understanding within our relationships? He is like the "Bridge between male & female" Helping us to know what each and every one of us needs. After all every Angel should have a guiding light. And I think we've found one in Passionate Ben. Ben, Your Awesome!
Julie Franceschini, Age 39
"Talking to Ben via email and listening to his audio show has allowed me to learn more about myself as a person and a woman..."
?Ben offers an upfront and honest approach to the information that he gives out. He doesn't sugar coat anything or make it sound pretty...he tells the honest truth. Talking to Ben via email and listening to his audio show has allowed me to learn more about myself as a person and a woman.
Ben has helped me learn what I should be looking or and expecting from a guy and a relationship but also helped me see how I had chosen the wrong guy in previous relationships.?
Danielle Redmond, Age 29
"This is one website and book every guy should pay attention to. If they have the balls to..."
On his website and podcasts, as well as in his book, Passionate Ben takes the gloves off, getting down and dirty when letting guys know why their relationships fail or why they can't seem to find that one special woman. He's direct, honest, and gets straight to the point. No sugar coating it from this man! This is one website and book every guy should pay attention to. If they have the balls to put their ego aside and listen to the advice Passionate Ben has to offer, they'll definitely learn a thing or two...or three....or four.....
Cindy Walker, Age 47
"He's taken a concept that seems to be a never ending mystery and turned it into something that's SO simple..."
When I first got introduced to Passionate Ben I didn't know what to think. The more I readabout him and listened to him the more interested I became in what he had to say.
He's honest about who he is and he's not afraid to speak out on whatever it is he feels needs to be heard. He gets it! The whole male population should really pay attention to what this guy is saying. He's spent a lot of time talking to and studying women and what we want(truly want) in a man.
He's taken a concept that seems to be a never ending mystery and turned it into something that's SO simple. Be honest, be yourself and just BE REAL! He's opened my eyes about how I and why I have failed relationships over and over, leaving me wondering "why can't I find a good guy?"
He's passionate about helping people, not just women but men everywhere understand what it takes to find and have that succesful relationship. I highly recommend putting aside egos and paying attention to what he's got to say!
He knows what he's talking about, he knows what women want and need. I'm very grateful to get the chance to enteract and communicate with him!

"If you want a better understanding of what women want, think, or feel, then please do yourself a favor and take Passionate Ben's advice..."
Hello men of the world. Please listen up and pay attention. Passionate Ben is one of the most enlightened men I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He really understands women.
I am not sure if it is because he listens to us, or if it is because he doesn't judge us, or maybe it is because he isn't secretly trying to get us in bed. But whatever the reason maybe, my point is that he truly knows what he is talking about.
He has been able to get inside my head without even being in the same state as me. Seriously, if you want a better understanding of what women want, think, or feel, then please do yourself a favor and take Passionate Ben's advice.
Desiree Landreth, Age 26
"Thank you Passionate Ben for allowing me to spread my wings and soar higher then the birds..."
Passionate Ben I?m not sure how and I?m not sure when but your sweet song of a voice and opinions could make an Angel rejoice. I?m just one Angel that has benefit from your words thank you Passionate Ben for allowing me to spread my wings and soar higher then the birds.
Angel, Age 42
"He's also renewed my faith in the males of this world, as I've been burned one too many times..."
As a new mom, and a single one at that, my personal life has been put on the back burner. Yet Ben has reminded me, so many times, that there is more to me than just being a mom.
He's helped me rediscover myself, and shown me that the old me is still inside, just a little bit quieter than it used to be. He's also renewed my faith in the males of this world, as I've been burned one too many times, and that there are some guys out there that do understand.
Yes, he does understand alot about us women, not everything, but more than most people think.
"I truly believe from the bottom of my heart that the male species of this world would benefit greatly from listening to what he has to say..."
I know guys around the world are thinking ?Why should I listen to this guy?what is it that he can teach me that I don?t already know?? Well let me tell you something.
Ben really knows how to treat woman?he knows what we are looking for and what we need from the men in our lives whether they be significant others or friends or family. I think a lot of this comes from Ben?s life experiences bad and good.
A lot of times we let the experiences we?ve been through shape who we are and how we treat the people around us. More often then not the bad things make us a little cynical about life.
I?ve been through some pretty rough stuff in my life and although I?m a woman listening to Ben?s audioblogs, talking to him personally has really helped me to see that I deserve a lot better then I?ve been getting in life and not only from the men I?ve been involved with but from my family as well it has also helped me to see the kind of person I want to be.
Ben is always brutally honest when it comes to sharing his life experiences and the things he?s been through. And I truly believe from the bottom of my heart that the male species of this world would benefit greatly from listening to what he has to say.
I don?t know how many of my friends both male and female I?ve had listen to Ben?s audioblogs, time and time again I hear my friends saying ?Wow?this guy really has something to say that is worth hearing.? What?s it going to hurt guys?take a little time to listen to him I promise you won?t be disappointed.

"I really enjoy what he has to say about women..."
I have been listening to Passionate Ben for a few months now and I really enjoy what he has to say about women and how to make them happy. He posted a bulletin on a website not long ago called "The one thing wrong with ALL women".... It was amazing. I really think you should give Passionate Ben a chance to prove himself, he knows what he's talking about.

"For the men who think they know all about women Ben will fill you in on the mystique of the female psyche..."
Even if you are ?the man? Passionate Ben can help you bring your A game to the dating scene if you?re single, or to better understand your significant other. Everybody needs a little help in the world of relationships and Passionate Ben can help men and women alike.
For the men who think they know all about women Ben will fill you in on the mystique of the female psyche. Women are confusing creatures and let?s face it men as a woman I have no idea what I want but I do look for a certain behavior in a man.
Some guys can gain from the wisdom of another man, not to mention Ben has his inner circle of ?angels? we tell him what we as women are looking for, he then in turn and helps the men out.
Now you maybe thinking ?I know everything about women I don?t need this guy?s help? It?s strange but Passionate Ben has a way with women and in his gift he can help even the best ?game player? out there. It will be definitely worth while and it will help you understand the woman in your life better.

"Trust me guys....this guy knows what a woman needs and wants in life..."
Why should men listen to Ben? This man has actually TALKED and LISTENED to what we as women want and need in relationships, be it romantic or just as a friend. I dont know how he does it, but he connects with each and every woman he talks to in some way.
He has the ability to see past all the superficial stuff and dig into our hearts....the access the inner beauty of each and every woman he meets.
I personally can tell you that anytime I read an e-mail, blog, or listen to his pod cast, I come out of it feeling like Im the most beautiful woman in the world.
Trust me guys....this guy knows what a woman needs and wants in life. And its not just about relationships. He has a great insight into the human nature in general. Ben has the ability to look at what we all consider a bad situation and not only find a solution to it....but to turn it into a positive.

"I would encourge anyone, male or female to listen to him..."

"Ben can teach men to be honest with women..."
Passionate Ben is very straight forward and honest i wish all men could be like that. Ben can teach men to be honest with women even if it will hurt our feelings. Women want honesty and Ben gives us that and he can teach other men(guys) to give us the same.
It is nice to know that Ben there for us to talk to about our issues, but it would nice to be able to talk to our husbands/boyfriends the same way. He has helped me build up my self esteem and my confidence with talking to my husband with certain isssue. I think is great and teh world needs more people like him.
Sarah Felder, Age 34
"Ben says a lot of things the average person doesn't want or know how to say..."
Wow! Where do I begin? I remember siging on to myspace one day and checking my inbox. There was a friend request from some guy named Pasionate Ben. He was a good looking guy. So, my first thought was, "great...another guy just trying to add a bunch of girls to his myspace to look cool"
So, like most single girls would do when they see a hot myspace guy, I clicked the profile. When I saw the pics (because that's the first place most people go to) I was certain that Ben was gonna be another good looking ass.
I couldn't have been more wrong!!
After taking a look at his pics, I decided to listen to his introduction message. It told me why he sent me an add, who he was, and most imprtant, what he was doing on myspace. I was fascinated and still not sold.
So, I read his blogs and listening to an audio. I was instantly hooked! I'm thrilled and honored to be one of Ben's angels! I like to sit around on a Friday or Saturday before I go out with a glass of merlot and listen to Ben.
I get a kick out of his candor and appreciate his tell it like it is style. Ben says a lot of things the average person doesn't want or know how to say. I believe in Ben and what he's trying to do!!

"I just wanted to let you know what a great job you are doing helping women around the world..."
Hello Ben, I just wanted to let you know what a great job you are doing helping women around the world. If not you who? If not now when? I have been listening to your podcast and have to admit there are times that i laugh out loud, and then there are times where you just slap us women in the face. thanks :) we all need a good kick in the ass once in a while.
Keep up the good job. and remember when you think you cant do it any more the creator will throw you another hard case that you will help and remind you of the reasons you do the things you do. Stand tall like the warrior that you are and keep BEING.

"I think if men listened to him, they would actually learn something..."
Passionate Ben is one of the most inspiring radio show ive ever heard. You can tell he's done his research and and knows what he's talking about. I think if men listened to him, they would actually learn something, and they will listen, they will want to know what PB knows. It's like Cosmopolitan! LOL!
I know guys everywhere who read cosmo to learn more about women. and this is one of there own kind.. letting them know the in's and out's telling what women need and how men (or gentlemen) should act. I think all women (and men) should listen to Passionate Ben. He's amazing... and really should be on Oprah! lol...

"All of a sudden, i had a new realization on life and guys..."
Hey everyone, I met Ben thru myspace, of course, and i looked at his page, and i figured wat the hell, he seems like a very sweet guy, i wuld hear wat he had to say. So, I added him,started reading his blogs, and all of a sudden, i had a new realization on life and guys, believe it or now, lol.
Oh, I 4got , i was a woman who was just bout to give up on guys and everything bout guys all together, cuz they seemed clueless bout wat really matters in a woman. Anyway, i started reading Ben's blogs, and got a new perspective on things.
Well, 1 nite i had a guy come over that way we culd meet,get to know each other, so on, and so forth. I had my myspace up and he said he wanted to be nosy, so i told em go ahead, and somehow, lol, he started reading Ben's blogs,and wat i was writing for the comments.
After he got off the computer, we had an extroardinary nite, and in fact an extraordinary 2 days after that. I asked em wat was it all bout, and he said he was plannin on showin me a good time while he gets to know me, but after he read some of the blogs, he knew he had to show me more than a great time, that he had to show me an awesome time,and in all of that, let me know i am special.
Well, im rambling on and on, but in summary, some men know how to treat a woman, but im sure they wuldnt mind gettin a few suggestions.
So, if u arent scared or u just wanna see wat he has to say, even tho its just a 1 time thing, give Passionate Ben a chance, and hear wat he has to say. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

"Ben's writings and audio broadcasts have really helped to center me..."
Passionate Ben has been a wonderful influence in the past few months of my life. I had recently come out of a not-so-good (ok, horrible) relationship and Ben's writings and audio broadcasts have really helped to center me, and i'm sure others, and really give a boost to some shattered self-esteem.
I mean, come on, who doesn't love a guy who calls you an 'Angel'?! So, thanks PB for being there for all of us when our wings are dragging.

"I just wanted to tell you that you have completely turned my perspective about guys around..."
I just wanted to write you and thank you from the bottom of my heart! The past year I have been in a state of depression basically due to lack of companionship. I have been in a few relationships but I have now come to realize why they never truly made me happy.
That reason is because I have been SETTLEING for the first guy that has crossed my path, and shown some sort of interest. I am a single mother of two beautiful children, and their fathers have both happily moved on. So I find myself wishing to be in a relationship, almost so I can prove to them I can be happy to, if this makes sense!
One day while searching through Myspace, I clicked on the profile of this Incredibly gorgeous man, which just so happened to be you. I began reading your profile, and some of your blogs, and thought you were very inspiring!
I read your blogs, and listen to episodes of your radio talk show daily! I just wanted to tell you that you have completely turned my perspective about guys around. I have never had the pleasure of being with a MAN, and I never realized this until reading your blogs.
I thought I was dating MEN, but now realize they all have been GUYS! I have decided that I'm not going to settle for the guys anymore, I am going to find a REAL MAN, even if it means being single for however long! For the first time in my life, I'm OK with that, and that's mainly because you have inspired me to be!
Thank You again Passionate Ben! I just wanted to share that with you, sorry its so long, but I just wanted you to know you have, yet again, helped ANOTHER Angel!

"He teaches you how to treat woman, no matter of who they are and what they look like..."
Hi, I Seriously think that all guys and ladies should listen to Passionate Ben. He really seem to know what he's talking about. For the men... He teaches you how to treat woman, no matter of who they are and what they look like.
For the ladies... He teaches you how you are to be treated and that you don't deserve anything less! I've listened to a couple of his audio's and they've helped me alot! I'm already a better person for listening to him. My self-esteem has gone up and my self-criticising has gone way down.
He's teached me that no matter who and what I am I have the right to be treated as a lady and not to take it when guys try and walk all over me! This in anycase is my two cents worth. Thanx for all your wonderful work Passionate Ben. You are great!

"You give me faith in the world, hon. You give me courage to smile and keep going..."
I loved this last bulletin. I needed it. You give me faith in the world, hon. You give me courage to smile and keep going. You touch a lot of people, Sweetie, and THAT... that is a very special gift.

"I came across your blog "What a real man is" and felt compelled to use it as a post on CraigsList..."
Hi, I came across your blog "What a real man is" and felt compelled to use it as a post on CraigsList under women seeking men...hoping to find a man with the same values. I have received a lot of "thank you's" from men...in helping to educate them...those thank you's belong to you...

"I thank you for helping those who just need a little confidence and support to find their path and then some...."
My friend has been bugging me for months to check your page out. Due to no speakers until recently, I was unable to get your broadcast(s) and really understand what you were trying to represent...until now.
As I write to you, I wonder if you've maybe heard it all before, and find myself speechless. So, as humble as I can be, I thank you for helping those who just need a little confidence and support to find their path (and then some.)
You are an honorable and noble man, destined for great things. Good Luck and God Bless.

"Guys listen to Ben because the information he wants to share comes from what he learns from us women..."
What can I say about this sweet caring man . Well lets start here Ben actually listens to what I and others say and then he comforts us and offers advise to us.
I would say that if there were more men with open minds and hearts like Ben relationships in whole world be better. Guys listen to Ben because the information he wants to share comes from what he learns from us women.

You are making a difference in my life every day - and you are apart of my life everyday, thanks for that. Would love to meet you in real life some time, so when ever you are in South Africa let me know, we can do a good SA Braai (BBQ)
You are sweet, honest, open minded, someone anybody can share their secrets with and a real good friend. You say it like it is, sometimes harsh but true. That is what I love most about you.
Thanks for being you and making time for me in your busy day's.

"I began to cry as I listened....to the whole broadcast..."
Thank you. I "accidentally" hit your broadcast page today. The "How do i trust someone...." jumped out at me. I clicked to listen for a few minutes just to see what you had to say. I began to cry as I listened....to the whole broadcast. My story is long and I won't bore you with it, but I did want to say thank you for your passion for women.
Now I know there are passionate men on the planet:) You are funny, you have a wonderful heart, and I...I am at a loss for words. Just let me say i appreciate you my fellow Texan! i live in Rosenberg (Houston) Texas.
Never been to Austin, (no i am not kidding) but will get to it one of these days. How do you trust after being beat down mentally, and verbally? I'd rather be punched.
The bruise goes away, but words....words replay over an over. I have forgiven 70 times 7 and then some, but have come to a point where I desire the passionate touch of a man, but am scared to be hurt anymore. The heart can only take so much. What to do?
"OMG! I found my new addiction..."
"OMG! I found my new addiction! I love listening to your radio broadcast while I am cleaning, cooking, or just laying down after a hard day! You are very honest and I love that in men! Keep the broadcasts coming!! :)

"You brought me peace that night--thank you Ben..."
But when I finally got a moment to sit down all I wanted to do was cry but didn't even have the energy. Instead I pressed the button for your show. The one with Tamara. It was great to hear a friend's voice. It was great to hear her laugh and it was great to hear English again. You too have a relaxing voice.
I would have liked to mix a drink as well but alcohol is rationed here much like coffee and I would have had to go off our secure area. I usually get searched when I get in. Guards, guns etc.. where the whole care is inspected with mirrors. Ugh.
Not worth the hassel. Instead I said a prayer and asked my guardian angel to hug me and mine just a tad tighter. After a few minutes I relaxed and throughly enjoyed myself listening to you both. Thank you for that. You may not know how much you affect your listeners. We are all doing different things.
Sometimes we need our guardian angel and sometimes we also need a flesh and blood guardian angel. You brought me peace that night--thank you Ben.

"You are truly a sweetheart and one of a kind..."
Wish all men were like you; caring, understanding, giving and able to show feelings. keep up the good work..i just love listening to your audiotapes."
"I have told by some of my offline friends about you, and they think that I am making you up, until log onto myspace and pull up your page and then they believe me..."
You are such a gentleman, hun. More guys need to be like you. I love your blogs and finally have had the chance to read/listen to some of the past ones, and the one I love is the one about why you call us Angels.
I love it when a guy calls me angel, cutie, gorgeous, etc... it makes me feel wanted, loved, etc. I don't understand anyone getting offended by it...It's like when I call a guy hun, sweety, or cutie....it's a term of endearment and only guys that I like and are friends with and care about get called that.
I have told by some of my offline friends about you, and they think that I am making you up, until log onto myspace and pull up your page and then they believe me.....they're just too lazy to create a myspace page and request to be added to your friend's list, so they make me (not that I mind!) log in every once in awhile so they can listen and read your blogs.
Anyhow, just wanted to say hi and thanks for being your sweet self.
Take care, hun. always,

"Your page and your columns have inspired many women..."
I just wanted to let you know that I look forward to everyday reading something new that you have written, and I hope one day that you do find the one for you. Keep doing what your doing, because its really great!
"Too bad there aren't more guys out there like yourself..."
I just saw your page and I must say I am speechless. What an amazing page you have. I have just subscribed to your blog and can't wait for your next one. Too bad there aren't more guys out there like yourself.
"People like you are much more inspiring because you're far more real..."
You could also say that I'm a bit "put off" by messages that are just a little too slick and polished. People like you are much more inspiring because you're far more real. Your sincerity is clearly geniune because it's much more "immediate" and "raw".
Any message you have to relate hasn't been worn away to something smooth and almost devoid of personality. There are still sharp edges in there that can poke people (me) into saying "ow! OK! I'm listening!" :D
?To be real ..ur an angel sent to show a better
side of men..."
In response to the blog.. thanks soo much whata touching story..i was crying my eyes out at the end... hope ur book is going well and stuff...keep up the amwazing blogs hon.. i read every one..... to be real ..ur an angel sent to show a better side of men..."

"I think what you are doing is wonderful and will help many women and men to understand each other and learn how to fall in love and live long happy lives..."
Actually I want you to pray for me if you believe in prayer...I got some bad news from my doctor and I am having a hard time dealing with it. I haven't told anyone about it yet, not even family. Mainly becuase I am still trying to come to grips with it.
I used to think that finding someone to love me was the most important thing in my life. That having someone to hold me and kiss me when I am hurt or sick was all that mattered...but in the end none of that really matters.
I think what you are doing is wonderful and will help many women and men to understand each other and learn how to fall in love and live long happy lives.
I'm not so sure I will be around long enough for that to happen, but maybe that is how it is meant to be for me. I look forward to reading and hearing your blogs.
Hugs and best wishes...

"I think this world is screaming for someone like you with yur veiws on the truth ..that your right..no one else has the balls to say..."
"Hey Ben I loved your broadcast on my birthday you really hit the nail on the head with everything..and I think this world is screaming for someone like you with yur veiws on the truth ..that yur right..noone else has the balls to say. Luv it baby keep it comin ~T Oh and I like when u ramble!"
"Why can't there more guys like u that are actually caring and not all about one thing..."
?I really like ur blogs...why cant there more guys like u that are actually caring and not all about one thing? ur page cheers me up when im having a bad day...?
?You could teach the men on this universe a thing or too I'm sure??
?I have one word for you....WOW!! I am extremely impressed with your profile, your honesty, wit and charm. You are gorgeous, It is too bad other men don't care about themselves like you obviously do. You could teach the men on this universe a thing or too I'm sure.?
Woman, Age 35
?There are few who think like you??
?Wow, what a profile!!! If you don't have a great girlfriend you should, with a profile like that, there are few who think like you. Good luck and happy hunting.?

"My husband read it over my shoulder he was really interested..."
I was reading one of your blogs and my husband read it over my shoulder he was really interested. he asked me to see if you would add him to your friends list as he said you had alot of insight into a woman's mind. He was very impressed with the way you wrote and spoke....If not I can understand if so he is the walmart gnome on my site."
"Thank you Ben, For being the kind of Man that gives women hope..."
You are AMAZING & THIS Angel is VERY proud of the person that you choose to be. Stay True To You. We are behind you EVERY step of the way. I Love You. XoXo.
"Have a way with words and you seem to know women so well..."
I loved listening to your Audio's. You really have a way with words and you seem to know Women so well! Too bad there aren't more Ben's out there for all of us. LOL!
"I truely do mean it when i say it you are a absolute hero..."
Hey sweetheart, That was an awesome new audio blog broadcast Ben. It is so genuine that a friend can take time out of there lives just to comfort a friend just by one simple word. It takes alot for somebody just to make a persons day better, and to make someone smile who is not having a good day. Honesty and sincerity is the best way to go. I truely do mean it when i say it you are a absolute hero, and to let you know you are truely an awesome person and great friend. Thank you sweetheart.
"You had me smiling, thinking, crying, laughing and most importantly feeling good about myself..."
Sweetheart, I just listened to you talking to me with great eagerness. I must say you had me smiling, thinking, crying, laughing and most importantly feeling good about myself. I understood everything you spoke of. I could relate to it as well. Too often a woman acts and feels EXACTLY as you described.
To hear a man say those 2 simple words can make everything change. Thank you for your passion and your compassion. I may not be a Bangin Hot Bodied Babe, but you sure did make me feel as though I mattered. There clearly is not nearly enough wonderful people on this planet... but having just ONE of you makes a hell of a difference.
Much Respect and Love to you Ben! Genuinely,

"I hope that my boys will grow up to be gentlemen just as you..."
Hi Ben, Im Dee...I wanted to formally introduce myself to you and to let you know that i think that you are a very intellegent and handsome man. I just finished listening to your blog ..4. I found it rather mesmerizing, you hit on many points that I related to.
I have to admit I couldnt belive that you were real, i figured you were some guy so i had to take a peek to see what you were about, and i was pleasntly surprised.
You are not only a man but a gentleman. You seem to make every woman on your list feel as though they are truly your friend, you seem to take the time to read what they write and give back honest feedback.
You have a way about you that makes people, well at least me feel like i can trust you, and im not a very trusting person. I am BBW, married over 9yrs with 4yr old twin boys, I hope that my boys will grow up to be gentlemen just as you seem to be, your mother must be proud!
"But thanks for giving me that extra boost to change my life..."
Thanks Ben. Your words are inspiring. And since I really don't want your foot up my ass, I am going to try to change. I don't want to be a victim any longer. My mother treated very similar to the examples you gave, I was molested several times as a child because my mom would leave me with random strangers, every guy I've ever been with has cheated, and now my husband of seven years has beaten me to the point of hospitalization. I have often wondered "what the fuck is wrong with me?"
But you really laid in on the table for me; nothing. There was stuff wrong with them and my only part in the whole process is that I keep allowing it to happen. I don't want to allow it any longer. And FYI, I live in California. Go figure. But thanks for giving me that extra boost to change my life.
He is out of jail now and has contacted me several times. It has been difficult for me, because he is trying to convince me to drop the charges because he is looking at 5 years in prison. But so far I am sticking to my guns. And hearing your audio has encouraged me further.
Thanks for making me cry; it really made me think about how fucked up my situation really is. And I don't feel bad any longer. I feel like I want to pick my self up, dust me off, and throw me back in to play ball!
You are right, my kids deserve a strong mother and I deserve to be happy!
?I also want to wish you luck, I am intrigued by you. I think your mind is a work of art...?
Work of art...it's true, I will try to explain.
You are every womans dream. Seriously. You approach women as people you can learn from. You present yourself as beautifully built, and equally beautifully minded.
You were a big brother, you are an only child raised by a single mom. you are clearly intelligent and romantic. You have a bit of kink, and you are passionate. All of these things appeal to every woman on a basic level.
The need to nuture, play, be worshipped...It is also the reason I consider you art. You come across as a dream, a fantasy, a chimera to every woman. So to have a mind that finely tuned to women...is art. Lol! That takes talent.
"Since becoming your friend, reading your thoughts and listening to them I have decided to do something for me..."
I just wanted to say thanks for the positive reinforcement and to update you on my plan to better myself. Here goes: I haven't been happy in years and I haven't done much to try and change it.
Since becoming your friend, reading your thoughts and listening to them I have decided to do something for me. I have been trying to make others happy for long enough now. I enrolled in the NutraSystem diet thing and am starting tomorrow.
This will be difficult because eating junk food is my last vice I can give up but I feel I need to do it. Your thoughts and ideas have shown me that I need to make myself happy before all else.
Thank you! Now I just have to buck up and do what needs to be done. I know by other people's standards this is probably very petty but to me it is very important. I am sorry for rambling but I wanted to let you know that you have had a positive effect on me!

"It wasn't until i saw your page and the effort your making for women that i smilled a true smile of hope in almost a year..."
Hello again Ben, Since i gfound out what you are about i have restled with the idea of sharing my amazing story with you....back and forth i went about weither it was simply amazing to me because i experianced those snap shots of moments or if these things could really be amazing to someone else...
but after much thinking i figured you would be a good outlet.......i guess you could say i did online datting before online datting was cool lol but i did about 6 years ago i met a guy who lived about 10 miles from me on an aol chat room and after months of speaking and learning he lived acrost the street from my sister we decided to meet...
after that point we were inseperiable with alot of major events such as custody battles my parents put me throught all the way to loosing our own baby to a miscarriage it seemd no matter what happened everyday i found more and more reasons to love hima nd the way he would look at me people knew we were so deep in love he was the only one who made me laugh and cry at the same time we were an amazing team and together we over came so unimagineable thigns....
he asked me to marry him december of 2004 and i accepted our love was the forever fairltale kind of love in may of 2005 he passed away in his sleep in my arms...he went in peace and always kept his promise to love me and only me until the day he died.....i remembered after he was gone and i was cleaning out the room we both stayed in at his grandmas i found every email every letter and gum wrapper and movie stub from an almost 4 year relationship....
i remembered it took 6 moths before i stopped crying and even know every moment i seem to reply our life together....and it wasn't until i saw your page and the effort your making for women that i smlled a true smile of hope in almost a year....and I wanted to thank you for that and let you know i think your doing an incredible thing.
"You have insight that most men, and most women don't even have...?
?Hey there...after just listening to your intro and the other audio blog, i am amazed that you are real!!! but I am impressed as well. Most guys don't bother to learn or even listen to women. You have insight that most men, and most women don't even have.?
?Your blogs are amazing. Every woman should have a friend like you??
"The whole honesty part..tellin a girl what she doesn't always want to hear but needs too..Is so true..."
?I read ur profile and it was amazing it was like reading the what i want in a guy wrote by me book:)!!..esp the whole honesty part..tellin a girl what she doesn't always want to hear but needs too..Is so true.. I never meet guys like that ( i never meet guys that know how to tell the truth about themselfs..let alone tell me something)
"Thank you for making me feel Phenomenal..."
That just touched something in my heart so if you (or Maya) don't mind, I would like to post this in my blog section. Much love and YOU'RE the angel. Thank you for making me feel Phenomenal.
"A guy who actually deserves to be called a man..."
I thought maybe you were full of shit. but i just read this post and it literally brought tears to my eyes. you seem like an awesome guy, a guy who actually deserves to be called a man. i hope that you keep up what youre doing, im sure there is a woman out there who will be helped by the things you say.
"I think the rest of the world deserves that privilege too..."
Hope all is well. I love reading what you have to say. And I think the rest of the world deserves that privilege too!
Take good care,
"Awesome P.B. Congrats!!! and what a beautiful story it brought a tear to my eye!! Thanks for Sharing!!
"I haven't been smiling this much in years..."
First off don't feel you have to answer this cause I know you are busy. I know you will because that is how you are. Ok so not only have you had me smiling for days now, but you just made my best friends day. She called me to say that you actually answeed her email.
She is like, "OH my god he is so sweet." I guess you said something that made he heart just want to up and rejoice. I told her about our conversation and she was afraid you were too good to be true. She now know that is not true. She says I know he probably talks to all his angels like this, but it just had me (and I am using her words not mine) twitterpatted.
Ok I so did not say that those were her words. LOL ;) So I just wanted to say you have made at least two people laughing their heads off. I haven't been smiling this much in years. And thank you so much for actually reading my blog on you and for what you said about it.
"You know you really make my day when i get lil messages from you you keep me with my head up and thinking possitive..."
Just wanted to tell you that you rock one more time and you know you really make my day when i get lil messages from you you keep me with my head up and thinking possitive and that has helped me a lot lately with everything going on in my life so you rock my world in my eyes.
"Wanted to let you know, you have an air about you that sends chills down my spine..."
I just wanted to let you know, you have an air about you that sends chills down my spine... So happy to read your depth and character. I love that there is an intelligent, kind and handsome man out there, like yourself.. Keep being exactly who you are.
"I don't know what it was that you said exactly oh when the transformation happened..."
"Ben I would like to take a moment to thank you for your words of wisdom I don't know what it was that you said exactly oh when the transformationi happened but I have raised the bar on how high a guy should jump to be the one to court after me.
"I've been exposed to different ways of thinking. I've learned alot..."
I"ve always understood where you come from. I love your energy, your big heart, your playful and energetic sense of humor, your warmth, sincerity and most of all, your strong thirst for knowledge and desire to learn. I think the latter is what attracts me most of all. I'm going through a learning curve right now. I can feel it.
Whenever I feel that restlessness and stirring I know I'm off on a new adventure. Since finding your page, I've been exposed to different ways of thinking. I've learned alot.
I know women think you're hot and well yeah, you are, but for me that doesn't seem to be be the main attraction. Sometimes I find myself thinking, I wonder what Ben would think about that. Think that's weird?

i love what i hear! its great! ur awesome and very very sexy and u have a great voice! i could listen to ur show everyday! You know u remind me of the male version of carrie bradshaw from sex and the city except ur on the radio lol.
"I think more men could and should take a lesson from you..."
I've got to say I love the way you think, and I think more men could and should take a lesson from you in honesty. It is very refreshing to me to see a man who isn't afraid of being honest even if it's not what people may want to hear. Keep up the good work and I look forward to reading your next blog entry. Have a great night and take care.

"We need integrity in this world and we need men to show others of the male sex HOW to be a man..."
Listening to your podcast today helped make me feel better and made me laugh after that god-awful train ride home from seattle. I needed to hear a man's perspective on the pathetic state of affairs with guys.
And the even more pathetic state of affairs of women settling for the 'guys' thinking they will change. Please keep the podcasts going. You'll get to Oprah, you have an honest and open heart.
We need integrity in this world and we need men to show others of the male sex HOW to be a man. You go!
