Never Can Say Goodbye: Why Men Leave, and Why They Come Back

Every time I think I’ve had enough And start heading for the door
There’s a very strange vibration Piercing me right through the core
It say’s “Turn around, you fool

You know you love him more and more”
Tell me why is it so?
Don’t want to let you go!

We are all familiar with the Gloria Gaynor hit Never Can Say Goodbye, in which a women is mysteriously and powerful drawn back to a man and the anguish-able passion that is their relationship.

When I researched Rhonda Ricardo’s runaway entertaining and highly “insightful” book “Cherries Over Quicksand,” which talks about women “who know or suspect their men have one foot out the door and can feel the ground crumbling under their feet,” I immediately understood why a man could never have sung the Gaynor song.

In Cherries Over Quicksand (and yes we will explain the title’s meaning during the show), Ricardo adeptly, sensitively and even humorously relates “colorful stories, mostly about men who have left their women and then ached to return,” and the reasons why many men ultimately just couldn’t say goodbye and why some knew they must.

Joining me on Thursday, July 8th at 8:00 PM EST is none other than Rhonda Ricardo, to share her own unique observations of the men (and women) she interviewed from all parts of America for Cherries Over Quicksand.

Rhonda’s Latest Book:

ARE YOU THE WOMAN HE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT? One morning Rhonda Ricardo, a freelance columnist for The Californian/North County Times, bravely set out to find answers from men to help the women in her life who thought or knew their men had decided to flee their castles. Now all you adventurous damsels can use these many insightful and humorous relationship hero’s suggestions and stories to help sinking friends get a giggle in confusing times. Or to perhaps dust off your worried-self and decide that you deserve a better Romeo . . . one who does not have one foot out the door or even better, to wake-up your own sleeping superhero and make him realize and maybe panic a little . . . the poor guy, because now – YOU ARE THE WOMAN HE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT! CHERRIES OVER QUICKSAND definition: When a woman discovers (or believes) her man wants out or worse-already snuck out in the middle of the night or just bolted after a simple relationship problem; the immediate feeling of falling or being sucked down into quicksand is a typical reaction of alarm mixed with unexpected anguish that can cause chaos with a woman’s confidence. The thought of his sudden (or impending) departure can cause saddened ladies to pack dirty socks in their child’s lunch box or worse . . . rack up parking tickets as she continuously walks from her parked car in a daze, quarters in hand . . . while running confusing questions about her man through her head. Ladies only have so many friends and family to turn to for advice in their quest for fulfilling (cherry/happy) relationships. CHERRIES OVER QUICKSAND welcomes women and men to comfortably slide into Rhonda Ricardo’s collection of sensitive and funny relationship stories gathered from men (and some women), to ease their tender hearts, relax, laugh, fortify and then decided to choose CHERRIES OVER QUICKSAND.
