    These ways to say goodbye will help you end a relationship with grace, love, and kindness – whether you need tips on how to say goodbye to someone you’re still in love with or someone you work with (or both!). A symbol of your relationship – a goodbye gift – is often a good way to end your time with someone. I love the wooden Willow Tree figurines – especially the Willow Tree Abundance pictured, because of the color and cheeriness of the flowers. Of course, the goodbye gift you give depends on your relationship and how it’s ending. How you say goodbye also…

It is normal as a community grows that changes upset some and as we have grown we have become more diverse.

      Attracting women really is not that difficult.  All you have to do is arm yourself with an understanding of what exactly the word "attraction" means, and understand what it does.Here is why:Attraction can happen instantly. You see a girl, a girl sees you. And there’s a spark. There’s interest, and curiosity. All in just a split second, before you even had the chance to utter a single word.That’s attraction.

    Differences in marriage are not irreconcilable at all. Successful marriage requires that you allow for and appreciate your differences. It means opening your mind to the fact that your spouse is not supposed to be similar to you. Your spouse is there for you to love and cherish, not for you to hold to a standard you think they should meet.

    It is said that one of the finest blessings you can experience is to have one friendship that lasts a lifetime. I’m not sure if the writer had your spouse in mind, but I believe that was not the context, which is better since it allows singles, separateds and divorced to play the home version of the game. In reality however, many friendships last for only a season. In Christian ministry, some turn out to be task oriented. As long as you continue to manage the church nursery, play the guitar or be a youth group sponsor, you’re in. Step down from those positions and watch your…

Like if you look at people's homes/apts that are totally decked out with a theme or filled to the brim with memorabilia it is almost always men. Or even things like video games or a certain TV character you can usually find plenty of men that obsess over such and pretty much dedicate their life to making their pad star trek or star wars themed, or what have you.

    I'm seeing a lot of posts from husbands whose wives are uninterested in sex. I am a wife who loves her husband but dismally uninterested in sex. Which is what made me come to this forum to begin with. So before Anon Pink tells everyone to get divorced, I hope I can give some insight from the other side of the fence. My husband and I had/have a lot of hurdles, both individually and as a couple. As a result, I literally can't stay out of my head.

    Good evening A post in another thread made me aware of something strange in my wife's sexual behavior. She rarely wants sex, but when she does, she physically enjoys it, often very enthusiastically. That could be explained by her just rarely wanting sex, but I think there is more. The last couple of years she has given me a BJ as a "gift" for my birthday (a practice I'm going to stop). She really dislikes doing that, and won't do it any other time - but doing it gets her so aroused that she wants me to give her an orgasm afterwards (which I always do). At times when we are lying in…

But trust me – there are many. So in keeping with my attempts to keep this blog honest, I thought it would be nice to share some of the not-so-great moments of our trip to Paris last week: Maya refused to speak in French which was a huge part of the reason we planned the trip.

    Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Re’ Schlitt of I Heart my Marriage. If I had to pick one word to describe how I want to approach my marriage, it would be intentional. In fact, it’s probably the best word I can find to describe the attitude with which we should all approach our marriages. On a whim, I decided to look up the definition of the word. It’s an action word that means to do something deliberately, consciously, or on purpose. If it was intentional, it didn’t happen accidentally. Someone planned for it to happen and stuck with it until it did. In the…

    Have you ever wondered why a woman that thrives in the hidden realm of porn-watching doesn’t admit to it? I’ve uncovered the truth behind the denial. In today’s society, it seems as if it is becoming more and more common for women to watch porn. But is it really? Maybe it’s just more common for women to admit to watching it, particularly if they mention that they only watch the “artsy” or “sensual” type of porn. Although this may be true, there is still an incredible amount of women who feel the need to conceal their porn watching ways. Most men watch porn on a regular basis.

    In the world of romance, ideas over what constitutes the perfect date can vary quite considerably – and nowhere more so than between the genders. There is no right answer to the question, “What is the perfect date?” One of the issues with being a human being is that we have been gifted, or cursed depending upon personal perspective, with the ability of free thought. Unfortunately though, free thought leads as much to disagreement and contention as it does to the more readily associated quality of harmony, and nowhere more so than with the whole question of dating.

    The entire house is dark except for the glow from the nightlight in the bathroom down the hall and the streetlight shining in my bedroom window. I can hear the clock ticking on the nightstand, and the dull roar of the engine of every single car driving by on the road leading into our driveway. I strain to listen to each of those cars drive by, hoping and praying one will slow down to turn in. None do. The ticking sound from the clock is irritating me. It taunts me second by second as I try to fall asleep, hoping I won’t wake up until sometime when all of this is over, or until I have to get…

    In order to become ourselves, we must be able to differentiate ourselves from others. Psychiatrist Murray Bowen, one of the pioneers of family therapy, did a great deal of work on differentiation – the ability to separate our thinking, emotions, and beliefs from those of others. Those with low differentiation look to others, particularly their family, to know what to think about issues and other people, how to feel and react to various situations, and what is right and wrong. Of course, the individual usually doesn’t admit this, often not even to themselves. Failure to…

    The Generous Husband
    2 Sep 2015 | 12:01 am
    This morning I had coffee with one of you. This individual works a job that has him away from home regularly, and he mentioned it puts stress on his marriage at times. Then I came home and read the following comment from a woman over on my The XY Codeblog. “Early in our marriage, our neighbor called me “the working widow” because my husband traveled extensively for work. I understood it, but never really felt that way myself because when my husband was home he always showered me with time and attention. I never felt neglected emotionally even though we were apart so much.“…

    Lori and I are big Dr Who fans. We were whovians before The Doctor was as cool as bow-ties! This bit of dialogue from Dark Water caught my attention: The Doctor: “You betrayed me. You betrayed our trust, you betrayed our friendship, you betrayed everything that I’ve ever stood for. You let me down!” Clara: “Then why are you helping me?” The Doctor: “Why? Do you think that I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference?” He’s saying he cares for her so much something as huge as betrayal is not enough to send him packing.  I…

    Last week shortly before we were to head home, we got word our home base was being evacuated due to fire. By the time everyone there got out it was a level 3 evacuation – leave immediately. Going back there was not an option, and going to the small lake cabin the rest of the clan would be crowded into didn’t sound like fun for us or at all helpful for them. We needed a new plan. We’d been dry camping and needed water, sewer, and power soon. On top of this, area RV parks were filling up fast as folks bumped by fires in other areas of the state headed to the coast. I’m…

    If you had all the time in the world and no schedule to live by, what would you do with it? Would you travel the globe? Work in your garden? Read or write? What about spending time with your spouse? We all know that if schedules were as simple as simply doing what we wanted, life would look very different. But, as it is, we all have responsibilities, jobs, social lives, children, errands…the everyday demands of a typical busy household.

    Have you ever seen one of those cheesy photos of a couple leaning over with their arms around each other, looking at a bank statement with big smiles on their faces? Yeah, those are stock photos.  They aren’t real. Unfortunately, for many married couples, the thought of money and finances brings up quite the opposite reaction. In the early years of our marriage, we simply avoided the topic.  Denial seemed like a pretty good solution until we woke up $54,500 in debt with our first baby on the way.

      Not long ago, I was reading a blog post in which the author meanders through what she wants her daughter to know about sex. I was struck by how spot on the post was. I mean seriously. The post was chock full of beautiful transparency — and hard core truth — about what really makes for great sex. (Even if you don’t have a daughter, read the post). The gist of that post and many other ones like it is that profound sexual intimacy happens against a backdrop of a husband and wife who know — really know — the messiness and emotional investment of doing life…

    Remember back in the day, when you could tell everything you needed to know about a man’s sexual prowess by how nimbly he could unhook your bra? What happened to that? Being ‘good in bed’ wasn’t an issue. The criteria for assessment were singular: can he release your breasts in two seconds or less? It was so easy. We didn’t even care about orgasms back then. It was all about the bra, and, later, how quickly he could find your knickers afterwards. (Although, to be fair, we were having orgasms, left right and centre, because our boyfriends knew what they were doing – even though…

Be a strong woman.’ At the time, I found this unsolicited advice baffling. I considered myself wise and strong and utterly without naïvety. As the young do – especially when they’re having sex all the time. With hindsight, however, and the experience of age, I’ve decoded the subtext of her words. ‘Don’t take his shit,’ my boyfriend’s…

    Relationship Advice And Repair

  • Guilt is Toxic and Preventable

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    17 Aug 2015 | 4:59 am
    Guilt contributes to your fear and doubt. Your feelings of regret that your best days have long past or from your actions towards others will ignite fear-based emotions. These will create beliefs that contribute to your separation from others through hurtful acts born out of your ego’s response to preserve the self through attack and blame. The end result is that you begin to feel less confident; halting your pursuit of your life purpose. Guilt gobbles up your hope and aspirations as you find yourself more absorbed in making arguments for why things do not go you way instead of taking…
  • Parenting with Love and Joy

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    1 Aug 2015 | 5:07 am
    There are many parenting resources on raising and developing children. Many of these resources are more reactive in nature by presenting methodology on ways to manage problems. The old paradigm of managing children is that we wait for problems, give them a diagnosis, and provide instructions on management of the diagnosis which many times includes behavioral modification and/or medication. This may sound harsh, but children deserve much better than this. When we look at children as problems, we are not parenting from the right perspective, nor are we parenting from the right thinking and…
  • Abundance Versus Poverty Consciousness

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    4 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    When the concept of poverty is discussed, many of us believe that the term “poverty” implies socioeconomic status. For our purposes, the term has more to do with limiting thoughts and beliefs rather than economic resources. When we allow our choices in life to be limited and highly influenced by others both positively and negatively, we have not chosen a consciousness of abundance where we believe that we can truly chart our course in life. Our course would include with a world full of infinite possibilities are abound and come from our intentions and decisions. People that think…

    The more that we are told what to do, the more that we resist and become irritated, frustrated, and simply unhappy. This includes situations involving our boss, spouse, children, friends, and acquaintances in our everyday activities. Many times, we either decide to do the minimum required of us or we complete the request and ruminate about how insensitive the request was to our current situation. When you draw a line in the sand with someone or resist in any way, your resulting emotional state of being is negatively impacted causing you to become in distress. Even though your inner voice is…

  • How to Improve Your Relationship With Yourself

    Guest
    28 Aug 2015 | 11:26 am
    So many people think about the relationship they have with their other half, or the relationship they wish they had, that they neglect the most important relationship. The relationship they have with themselves! You can’t have a real quality relationship with anybody else if the relationship with yourself isn’t on point. Here’s how to improve it: Be Kind to Yourself The first step is to be kind to yourself. If you’re going to be your own friend, you need to speak to yourself in your head like you would a friend. Don’t put yourself down or say anything to yourself... Continue Reading

    Can we just agree that buying a gift for a guy, any guy is hard. I had a boyfriend once, a long time ago now. I bought him this lovely designer jacket. It was perfect and incredibly stylish. Do you know what he did? He asked me how much it was and when I finally told him, asked for the receipt. He then said it was a waste of money, took it back and bought a different jack for a tenner from a superstore. Needless to say, he wasn’t my boyfriend for much longer. I think most guys think girls... Continue Reading

  • The Enneagram- Type 6 :The Loyalist

    Colleen Morris
    3 Sep 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Sitting in the centre of the ‘thinking’ personality types, 6’s carry the observation skills and analytics of a 5, and the playfulness of a 7. Fiercely loyal, at their best they are questioners and reformers, caring for the people around them with diligence and love. Prone to becoming cynical, they will doubt their own abilities and seek approval from the people around them, before they truly learn to trust themselves. Find out more about Type 6’s in the infographic below. You can visit our Enneagram page for more downloads on other personality types.   Are you a Type 6? Would you…

Today I wanted to take this opportunity to expand on my thoughts and statements in the article, bringing to light the significance of this scandal and what it means in our community.

  • How Addiction Impacts The Family

    Jessica Morris
    27 Aug 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Addiction isn’t a solitary illness. This means that even though only one member of the family may have an addiction, each other member is affected by it. In this infographic by Change to Change, we are shown the roles that family members take on during addiction. Aside from the person who is struggling with the addiction, you will also frequently see The Caretaker, The Hero, The Lost Child, The Mascot and The Scapegoat. Each member of the family falls into one or more of these roles, so their life individually, and the life of the family, is dramatically altered. Do you align yourself with…

That’s not to say that these kinds of martial arts aren’t valuable or that they don’t increase your ability to defend yourself. Each discipline has its own merits and each was designed for a specific function in a certain place and time.

This past Sunday, as the church service ended, my small group and I agreed that we’d go out for lunch as usual. After ten minutes of talking with people, I signaled my crew and we started leaving.

    My prayer was simple in those days: “God, please take this sickness away so that I can stay in college.” One morning the first week of my senior year of college, I had woken up with joint pain. A few days later, I could barely walk or even lift my arms to blow dry my hair. Something was really wrong, but the doctors couldn’t figure out what. My mom stayed with me in the school guesthouse for the first few weeks, and then I moved into an apartment with friends. That’s when things really began falling apart. One afternoon following classes, I sat in my car in tears. I called my brother,…

Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals. All truth is God’s truth, so don’t let ideologues tell you science and religion are incompatible.

  • Signs of an eligible Nigerian Bachelor

    3 Sep 2015 | 5:50 am
    When it comes to the somewhat mandatory ‘ritual’ of getting married in Nigeria, men are usually the reluctant ones. This may seem sexist in a way, but the pressure of tying the knot and saying the much anticipated “I do” is heavily placed on the woman, while the man goes about his life like it’s no man’s business. But there’s just how far that will last. There comes a time in his life when the bells begin to ring loudly in his ears. And when that happens, he begins to look for wife material. Here are five signs of an eligible Nigerian Bachelor.•He’s 30 years and aboveIn…

It’s just us, all by ourselves, with no one to talk with, smile at or even play with. And sometimes, it’s even awkward. We are in the midst of a crowd, but deep down, we feel it’s just us there. There’s a lack of connection, a lack of belonging that makes us feel out of place. Whatever sort of loneliness you may be experiencing, you can snap out of it by taking these little steps.•Identify what triggers the feeling Different…

This is a common fear regarding detachment and one I understand—the second sentence in that LBS comment is from me just after Bomb Drop. I spent the first few months at the forum telling people I did not believe in detaching. What surprises me now is that they did not try to convince me otherwise. In the Midlife Dimensions chat I asked Jim Conway about detachment and he told me to think of surrender instead; this was why I said I…

    Stress is a natural and normal “by-product” of every family’s life. In fact, family stress can bring out the best of us: as we stretch to meet the challenges we face, we become better parents, our children blossom and our families grow. But too much stress can spiral our families in the other direction. Take this Thriving test to see how your family fares. Answer True or False for each of the following statements. Set 1 1.

  • Good Co(operative)-Parenting

    Stephanie
    7 Aug 2015 | 9:10 am
    To be a good parent demands untold commitment and requires that you make countless decisions every day—about babysitters, schools, friends, bedtime and homework routines. It’s not a glamorous job, but it promises the greatest reward one could ever ask for: a child’s love and a way to share God’s love with your child and, as a result, with the world. But when separation, divorce or remarriage occurs, parenting becomes co-parenting, and what is already a tough job can seem unbearable. Everything is more complicated and you are likely, at times, to feel overwhelmed and exhausted.

Say yes to what you do want. 4) Schedule time for rest and relaxation and make it a non-negotiable appointment. 5) Run all of your errands and chores in one day so the rest of your week is free. 6) Create space. If you’re not using something now, file it, toss it, give it away, sell it or trade it. 7) Ask for and accept help. Delegate chores. Hire help whenever possible.

    Sex Positions for Hot Days It’s a hot summer day, but don’t let that get in your way. Sex is a sweaty, hot activity — especially in 80+ degrees. Not to mention, you and your partner are both radiating your own body heat. Sex causes your body to create heat because it increases your heart rate and blood flow, and causes your muscles to tense. To make sex more amenable when the weather and your body temperature seem overwhelming you can do a number of things to cool down externally. One of the best ways to keep cool is to keep your body core away from your…

    Teenage Relationships   Most marriages are formed of people who met in high-school or college. While in college you are not quite a teenager, you are not a fully grown adult as well. Marriages will develop into beautiful families or be ruined and doomed to fail. The success or the failure of the marriage is related to the relationship these two people had when they were teenagers. What most teenagers do not understand is the fact that a relationship is not solemnly based on sex. Values as respect, love, trust and communication are just as important as sex or even more. In a loving…

    How To Build Trust In A Relationship?   A healthy relationship is based on communicating, respect, trust and love. Without one of these 4 elements, the relationship can be easily broken. Trust is one of the main keys when forming a new bond. It is the glue of all relationships. Once it is gone, the partnership is doomed to fail. After trust is gone, jealousy appears and then all three elements that were left come crumbling down. Without trust you can’t say you respect a person, because with every new decision question marks will rise up. Love and trust are well connected. They are both…

  • It's Time to Stop Asking "What If"

    3 Sep 2015 | 7:46 pm
    I don't know about all of you, but I ask myself  "what if" a lot. When I think about my relationship with Max I say to myself, "what if I fought harder", "what if I told him I loved him one more time" and "what if I begged him to stay?" These questions end up driving me into a crazy downward thought spiral, that often takes days to get out of. Now, as time has passed since my breakup I ask myself these questions less, but I still ask them, and they still drive me crazy. I have decided it is officially time to stop with these "what ifs."This plan is much easier said then done but I am…

    As I sit in my bed, dreading getting up, I remember it has been one month to the day that Max moved across the country with his new girlfriend. Usually, days like this would bother me. But, for the first time it didn't. I realized this was the day, waiting to see some sort of instagram post about his new life, and it didn't make me want to cry. I talk a lot about how time is one of the best ways to heal from a broken relationship. Today shows me that this is true. It has taken a long time for me to get to the point I am at, Monday marks 7 months since we broke up. I wanted to share this with…
  • Stop Telling Me To Go On A Date!

    23 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
    Friends always think that their advice is helpful. Their intentions are always good, and all they want is to see us happy again. But, if one of my friends says, "go on a date" to me again, I'm going to scream! I don't know about all of you, but I am the only one out of my close friends that has gone through a long term relationship breakup. They have all dated people for a few weeks and called it quits, and think that they know exactly what I'm going through and how to make me feel better. Again, the intentions are so genuine, but they really don't understand what I am going through, or the…
  • Timing Is It Ever Right?

    15 Aug 2015 | 2:35 pm
    We've all heard the phrase wrong place wrong time. There have been so many times in life where I have used this saying. When Max and I broke up I told myself that we just met at the wrong time. Max and I were together at the wrong time in our lives. We were not able to make our relationship last because at the time we were each going through a lot of change and transition. When Sam and I broke up I said the same thing. I definitely believe that both of those relationships succumbed to the problem of wrong timing. But, this has started to make me wonder, if there is such a thing as wrong time,…
  • Dating Older: How Old is TOO Old?

    12 Aug 2015 | 12:27 am
    As I start to think about dating again, I begin asking myself the age old question; what am I looking for in a partner? Many things pop into my mind. I want someone ambitious, employed, nurturing, witty, and so on. But. I am also looking for someone with similar goals, dreams, and someone close in age. When I talk to my friends about my so called list they always ask me what I consider "close to my age" to be. I usually say between 26 and 27. I'm 22, so this means I am considering dating someone four to five years older then me. I always thought that this was a bit too old than I would…
