    Do you wonder why some men get female attention and respect from other males more easily? Some men are attractive to both sexes just by how they carry themselves. I’m not talking about their hairstyle or whether or not they have a well-manicured beard or cut torso. They simply carry themselves in a way that females find irresistible and males appreciate. This type of man is called an alpha male. Some years ago I went to meet my college friend, Sean, who was quite popular with the ladies. As I approached our meeting place, I saw him standing in the distance and I thought: “He looks…

    Advice for a healthy marriage can, in some cases, seem a little obvious. But don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you already “know it all.” Problems in a marriage have a way of creeping up on a relationship without being immediately visible. In fact, when you are involved in a long term relationship, sometimes it’s hard to see the wood for the trees, and it takes only the most basic advice for you to see what is wrong.

    Last night my youngest daughter was telling me about the plan for the weekend. In a quick recap of how it will be going down, she shared all the details. “My friend is picking me up after school, then we are going over here, then I will spend the night, then dad will pick me up at _____ the next day. Then we go to _______ and then ______ and then church and then we will end up back over here. Then, Sunday……….” Right after she told me, I paused. I knew within 30 seconds I had retained nothing but the big picture. I had to ask her to repeat the entire thing again.

I want to share some thoughts on relationships.  Hopefully they will be helpful, maybe they won’t.  Just know that they and anything else I ever say or do, always come from the heart and with the best intentions. The first thing I want to share with you has been said to me (and you) by a very wise woman in our lives, my mom. Your grandma’s analogy is one of the best I have ever…

The All-or-Nothing Trap: You see your partner as either always doing the wrong thing, or never doing the right thing. (“He always has to be right!”) 2. Catastrophic Conclusions: One partner exaggerates negative actions and events concerning the other partner. (“She bounced that check and now we are definitely heading to the poor house!”) 3. The “Should” Bomb: One partner assumes the other will meet one or more of his or her needs—just because he or…

    One of my favorite questions to ask someone when I am first getting to know them is “What are you passion about?” or “What is one thing you cannot live without in this world?” maybe it sounds silly or too deep but really, I think it’s insightful to who they are. It’s shocking to me when people don’t know how to answer this question or really have to ponder about it. For me, the automatic answer is Taylor Swift. Taylor is the woman who has been there through all the love stories, through the tragic breakups, and the spectacular times with all my friends. She has been there for me…

    Hi everybody. Reading all of these posts has helped me realize that I am not the only person feeling this way. Right now we are in the midst of seperating. He wants to move out ASAP. I asked him to wait until after the holidays to make any life changes for the kids. As far as visitation..how does that work. I don't want him to think he can come over whenever he wants to see them. I want a schedule but I don't want the kids to feel like they are being tossed from one place to another. I want them to know and feel like they have a permanant home. How does that happen?

A mutual friend of ours text us to figure out dinner for the weekend (we camp on weekends) She said she was thinking tacos and the items she had, my husband responded what he would grab and that he couldn't wait to eat her "taco" I asked him how he would feel if her husband responded to me that way, "no it wouldn't bother me, come on, it was just a joke"

    To say a lot has been written about the LD/HD dilemma would be the understatement of the millenia. However, at the root of it, from what I can tell, is a lot of people simply not admitting that they just aren't sexually attracted to their spouse anymore, if ever they were in the first place. It's amazing how many LD spouses seem to recover when divorced and dating, remarried, or having an affair with somebody they truly crave sexually. People who want to have sex have sex. Period. Even with children, jobs, just the overall madness of busy lives, they will find a way if it's mutually important…

    A work pal and I were discussing this recently: We both have teen daughters the same age, and we have both experienced some awkwardness. Whenever we go out alone with our teen daughters, we sometimes get some weird looks from people. One old lady gave me some real dirty looks and muttered something about "Call the cops" when we walked past her... they must think that we're pedophiles or kidnappers or something. And it's a little more so for me, as my W is Korean, so my D doesn't look like my D at first glance. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Recently I made this response to the LMS Chairman’s “we’re not facing a heretical Pope”: Dear Dr Shaw, Thank you for your post. I feel that you have omitted something important: For the Church to say “sorry everyone it seems we’ve been wrong all along” it may also entail saying “sorry everyone it seems that Jesus has been wrong all along”. This is particularly the case with the Indissolubility of Marriage, since it is not something that the Church has defined using her Ordinary or Extraordinary Magisterial Authority (such as in the case…

Even though things are looking up for us in a wonderful way, I never want to forget being a one car family with a 1998 Honda that we pray will keep running until we can get a second car. I…

    A recent YouGov poll released earlier this week has found that around four in ten Church of England clergy now support same-sex marriage, leaving around five in ten opposing marriage equality, with around one in ten still undecided on the issue. The poll’s findings are being regarded by some as an indication that support for marriage equality is steadily increasing within the ranks of the Church. The Archbishop of Canterbury himself appeared to have changed his position on the matter when he stated earlier this year that it is “right and proper” that same-sex marriage has been made into…

One thing we often say to ourselves when it comes to our vices, “I feel guilty about ________, but it is just so hard to quit.” If we keep telling ourselves it’s hard to quit, it will be.

The emotional reactivity/rationality challenge and the togetherness/separateness dilemma. These two forces intermix in various and subtle ways to shape your relationship. The togetherness/separateness force is a natural force much like the need plants have for sunshine or water. Every plant requires a certain level of sunlight for healthy development — too much sunshine will kill the plant and too little sunshine will lead to the plant’s death. Marriages…

    New Answer - I felt hated by my boyfriend’s mother because I am 5years older. My boyfriend’s mother sworn that she can never be alive to see her son marry me. This was embarrassing for me because I have established almost all my life around him and we both love each other for almost 6years and her mother called me “Old Woman” now. I cried when my guy told me that her mother won’t support our marriage because of my age. We then agreed to look for means to convince her mother and make her bless us, but we couldn’t succeed. Thanks to testimonies I read on local newspaper and blogs…

    Dear Lisa, I’ve spent the last two hours on your blog and listening to some of your radio shows.  I can tell you’re passionate about self love and self acceptance, and I applaud you for that, but as a guy, I have to tell you, I think maybe you’re encouraging women to take this self love thing too far.   It seems to me like you’re telling women, if you’re fat, that’s okay.  You’re telling women if they don’t like what they see when they look in the mirror, they should change the way they think about that rather than changing what they see in the mirror.  That’s a nice…

A week ago or so I had a moment.  Well, a series of moments that were profoundly upsetting. Family stuff.  I swear.  Nothing can turn my zen inside out faster than certain types of family drama, and I willingly, and eyes wide open,  walked myself into a minefield of family sh*t ball explosions that rocked me.  In fact, I scheduled the appointment that landed me there.

     If the husband repress emotions, what is left? We women spend much time talking about how we feel.  We keep sharing our emotional reactions to life’s situations:  who did what to us and add a description of how we feel about it.  Sometimes, perhaps we talk and talk about our feelings as the focus of our connection with others…This is not common to both genders at all. Men have been socialized in a different way. Most of men are afraid to really feel their feelings, because it’s equivalent to losing control, and they are afraid of the pain involved in feeling their…

     Are You Living With A Passive Aggressive Husband? It is common that people, and really men, decide that it takes too much time and energy to make the effort to sort their own emotions and solve conflicts in a cooperative way. The prevailing male attitude is denial of conflict and refusal to understand the other side… For men, retreating into silence and denying the existence of the inevitable marital conflicts is the easy way out; it is fast, and “solves the problem” without confrontation (at least for now) and saves their emotional energy. When your loved one is swallowing…

I think in general, people like to consider themselves supportive of their loved ones.

The woman went on to imply that if the husband had to walk in the wife’s shoes for a week, he would see why she isn’t enthused about sex. Her tone was adversarial, almost as if the husband is one big inconvenience that happens to live in the house (and sex was obviously one big inconvenience that went along with him living there). Such commentary stirs in…

    It has been awhile since I talked about margin – the empty time in your scheduled during which life happens. Holiday margin is one of the most difficult margins to accomplish, and it will only happen if you start early and make hard decisions. If you have ever felt stressed by the holidays, you need some holiday margin. If you are exhausted come January, you need holiday margin. If your marriage suffers every year between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, you really need to get some holiday margin. Holiday margin is as simple as doing less.

There was even a viral post recently (that I can’t find a link to so if you know what I’m talking about help a sister out) where a mom talks about praying for her kid’s future spouse’s mom. We spend a lot of time praying for our kids’ future marriages because we know it’s such a huge part of happiness in adulthood. You can be broke and in a dead-end job, but if your marriage is solid that stuff doesn’t matter as much. The minute we meet our kids we want them to…
  • Webinar: Is everyone doing their fair share?

    Marie McKinney-Oates
    14 Oct 2014 | 9:36 am
    The most common argument for new parents is the question, Is everyone doing their fair share? Ok, that’s a lie. The most common argument for new parents is, “You are a lazy bum, and I’d be better off doing this alone.” Or “Wow, you’re hormonal. What? No, I didn’t say anything.” On Wednesday, October 15th at 12pm (Central) I will be dissecting this common argument and look at: the ingredients that make this a common fight the rules to follow so it doesn’t become an EPIC fight and how to create a plan so that your fight ends with solutions…
  • How Attachment Parenting Saved My Marriage

    Marie McKinney-Oates
    13 Oct 2014 | 12:03 am
      When Mayim Bialik (remember Blossom?) got divorced everyone blamed it on her Attachment Parenting philosophy saying that her extreme focus on the children meant that she had (obviously) let her marriage fall to the wayside. I would like to say, “Bull crap.” True Story: Our decision to Attachment Parent is what has saved my marriage time and time again. Let me explain how. Attachment Parenting First, let’s define Attachment Parenting. It is not breastfeeding or babywearing or co-sleeping. Attachment Parenting is  responding to your child’s needs in a way that…

If you’re not happy with your current career, why wait to make a change? Check out these four ways to improve your career and your marriage simultaneously. 1. Reconnect with Your Passions Now is the time to reconnect with your passions, inspirations, and values – the things that brought you to the marriage to begin with.

  • Supporting Your Spouse’s Interests (Even the Ones that Bug You)

    E.J. Smith
    27 Oct 2014 | 7:02 am
    Do you consider yourself a supportive spouse to your husband or wife’s interests and aspirations? Do you value and support activities that are meaningful to them? I think in general, people like to consider themselves supportive of their loved ones. I have found— and truly this is just plain old common sense— that people are much more apt to enthusiastically support their partner’s hobbies and interests if they themselves can find personal value in the pursuit as well. Pretty obvious, right? Let’s Talk Attraction When we talk about attraction and the things that bring people…
  • Is Sex in Your Marriage Inconvenient?

    Julie Sibert
    19 Oct 2014 | 6:21 pm
    Recently on my own blog, I wrote a post about the 5 Worst Excuses for Not Having Sex. Someone commented on that post inferring that husbands need to let go of this “woe is me” attitude about not getting more sex. The woman went on to imply that if the husband had to walk in the wife’s shoes for a week, he would see why she isn’t enthused about sex. Her tone was adversarial, almost as if the husband is one big inconvenience that happens to live in the house (and sex was obviously one big inconvenience that went along with him living there). Such commentary stirs in…
  • Headache Again? 3 Real Reasons Why Married Women Lose Interest In Sex

    Dustin
    15 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    Has earth shaking, bed breaking sex  turned into a Saturday night snooze fest, or a quickie between taking the dog to the vet and picking the children up from school? Even though sex is an absolutely critical part of a healthy and happy marriage, many women are losing interest in intimacy with their husbands. Why does it happen even in the happiest of marriages? After conducting personal research and reading many letters from people around the world, three problems seem to remain common. Women said their waning interest in sex was related to the low overall satisfaction in life,…

    Nora Femenia
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:15 am
    resilient survivor woman CAN YOU SEE THE ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP AS A LIFE LESSON IN RESILIENCE? There is much more information about how to identify emotional abuse, than  about the process of breaking free and healing from it. The preferred solution for the victim seems to be to leave both, the abusive partner and the abusive situation. For the abuser himself, if he is not done with this behavior, now he has the job of finding another person submissive enough as to occupy the role of new victim. Thinking about this lack of information and resources, and asking the question several times:…
  • Our frustrated emotional needs become conflict hidden roots!

    Nora Femenia
    15 Oct 2014 | 3:10 pm
      How from frustrated emotional needs we produce conflicts For us to lead successful and happy lives, we all have basic needs that have to be fulfilled by our loved ones around us. And we are motivated to do the same for them. We all have human needs that reach out for satisfaction, but few of us are educated in how to take ownership of them and search for solutions. Perhaps we tend to feel we are victims of others’ selfishness. If so, we need first to search for what grounds us into our own individuality. Our entire happiness depends first on knowing what we need, and then on getting…

    Shame and Humiliation: my story of domestic violence. After a public discussion about  NFL player Ray Rice hitting his then fiancée unconscious inside an elevator, the floodgates were open in Twitter for women to share their own stories. Under the hashtags of #WhyIStayed, and #WhyILeft, women are telling their own experiences of domestic violence. They swirl around the basic question: Why is she staying with him? Why is she not leaving? and the answers tinted by personal stories, ethnicity, age and cultural differences,  flow endlessly into the same river of pain and redemption. First,…

COMMITMENT Be faithful – thou shalt not steal thy neighbor’s wife/husband – infidelity is not about sex but trust (which is 90% of communication!) Work at it: the marriages that really work and last are the ones that receive a lot of attention! Little gifts, compliments, surprises, affections and love notes.

    This month as part of the Christian Marriage Bloggers Association, there is a weekly blogging challenge focusing on wisdom we have gained for our marriage. This week, specifically its from our family members. My mind jumped to five years ago. Our family gathered in a quaint stone chapel in the Ozarks to celebrate the marriages of my parents and grandparents. At the renewal ceremony, we honored 40 years and 63 years respectively. I intentionally asked my parents during that weekend what they had learned from their years together. With my mom, we were decorating in the chapel, there were just…

    Twenty-nine was a good year. My first book was published. And I had all those new friends I made while working on said book. And I was still in my 20s! There was less grey hair, I’m sure of it. Turns out 29 might be as good as it gets, at least socially. According to a new British survey, 29-year olds have an average of 80 friends, whereas the average person only has 64 friends. The 29-year-old popularity surge is due to still being tight with your besties from college, but also having made work friends too. Like Hannah Montana, 29-year-olds are in the best of both worlds (RIP Disney…

Especially now that I’ve decided one-night-stands are for losers, and stopped shagging my ex-boyfriend and all his mates due to spurious moral reasons such as the fact they’ve all got married and impregnated their wives.

  • Your Happiness and Your Child’s development

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    4 Oct 2014 | 5:14 am
    What does a parent’s happiness have to do with child development? Everything!  The best way to prepare yourself for the awesome role of parenting is to adopt thoughts, beliefs and actions that align with your happiness.  If your emotions are more on the negative end of the emotional spectrum, you will be a barrier to your child realizing their true development potential.  You may think that you can separate positive parenting from unhappiness but you simply can’t. You will inject more of your negative beliefs and thinking patterns on your child during each developmental stage…

    When you turn on the television and see sports figures behaving poorly, you may wonder what is going on with our role models. What you may not realize is that they are just as human and part of a society that is more in touch with external stimuli than internal awareness. When we are children, we are either connected to an internal awareness that life contains many possibilities and that people are essentially good or we may adopt beliefs that life’s doors are closed and that we cannot trust anyone. Men along with women demonstrate fear in a multitude of ways when their beliefs create…

    The bully is more frightened than his or her victim in many cases. He attempts to bring sense to his life by rationalizing that his victim is the cause of his actions and suppresses his thoughts of inadequacy and self-hate. In many schools, the bully had previously been on the other end of the stick where he was threatened and intimidated by other children/or adults. In either case, the perpetrator or victim remain equally fearful and filled with beliefs of unworthiness and inadequacy. Until schools and adults begin to realize that the act of bullying involves people that are centered in fear…

    Guest
    27 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Struggling with addiction is a heartbreaking thing to witness or go through. The feeling of helplessness it brings is only expounded as we witness ourselves or our loved ones waste away at the hands of a crippling addiction. There is always hope, though. Many drug rehab centers are available that can provide the support, structure, and guidance addicts need to come to terms with and overcome their substance abuse. Below are three inspiring stories from people who defeated their addictions. April At the tender age of 12, April began her long road of substance abuse in an attempt to cope with…

    Today TreeHouse is thrilled to welcome six time Grammy winner, Amy Grant, as our Women Of Hope keynote speaker and musical guest. (Sorry, it’s sold out) In 1984 seventeen year old Amy Fayas and twenty-one year old Scott Volltrauer were both at an Amy Grant concert. We didn’t know one another then, and wouldn’t meet for a couple more years but our hearts were both connected to the same sweet songs of Amy Grant. It’s been years since I was a regular listener, but Amy Grant’s songs helped anchor my young faith. Here are a few examples of lessons her songs taught me.

    Here are three phrases I’m thinking about. Maybe you have answers for me. If “love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:8), what fails in so many previously loving relationships? The Bible says, “resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:8), but then how come – like my friend Mandy says – “Satan gets in my head and screws with me like it’s his full-time job”? “If you don’t do what you know is right, you have sinned” (James 4:17). Based on my procrastination alone, how long would the lists be of those sins? What…

    I spent hours this week listening to and reading the lyrics of the current Billboard Hot 100. Musicians are often viewed as spokespersons of their generation. For the cynics among us, it’s not all bad news. At TreeHouse every week we remind our teens that “you’re not alone” because so many people – young and old – feel like they are the only one dealing with those feelings and thoughts. So it’s good news that two of the most popular songs have self-affirming messages. Meghan Trainor “All About That Bass” The number one song in the country…

    I love baseball. Last night I got home from work in time to watch the end of a great MLB playoff game between the Oakland A’s and the host Kansas City Royals. At one point in the game the A’s lead over the Royals was so overwhelming statisticians at Fangraphs estimate that the Royals had a 3% (yes, three percent) chance of winning. See chart below. Did the Royals give up? No. Did they muscle-up and power their way to victory? No, that was unlikely. According to ESPN.com they had the least home runs in all of baseball. What they could do was run. The Royals had the most stolen…

Just be THERE.That's it, that’s the only tip I have for you. Just be THERE! I can't stress that enough. There is nothing worse than being a "friend" that only shows up in a friendship when it is convenient. You know, those friends who show up for the parties but never the funerals. Don’t be that person. Be there is the only tip because thats all it takes. If you are there in a friendship everything else will fall into place.

But, with a little creativity I can turn a totally innocent and peaceful picture into something snarky. I can’t tell you how many nice comments I got on my new profile pic (thank you) but the reality of the situation is that I was not relaxed or peaceful but stressed from moving. So, apparently I am a good actress but just blew my cover here. That’s ok. If I can’t make fun of myself... Continue Reading

After all, Wednesday is ‘hump day’- just half way through the working week for the majority of people. It is a wishy-washy sort of day where I have survived Monday and Tuesday, but I still have Thursday and Friday to go. I anticipate Wednesday’s with enthusiasm because it is my ‘day off’ from my office. It represents a whole 8 hours of time to do as I choose. Ahh, I love Wednesdays.

Venus in Scorpio is said to be in its fall. There are some disadvantages to having a planet in “fall” or “detriment,” due more to societal norms and expectations than anything else. As such, Venus is not particularly comfortable in Scorpio, where the naturally romantic, self-indulgent, partnership-oriented archetype struggles to express itself through the intense, passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpionic…

Venus is Libra’s natural ruler, and is thus happiest and most comfortable there (along with Taurus, the sign it co-rules, and Pisces, the sign of its exaltation). Venus in Libra is all about peace, love and understanding. It’s about compromising and accommodating the needs of others in order to preserve harmony and balance in our lives. This extends to relationships of course, as Venus is the “love” planet and Libra is the relationship and partnership sign. When Venus…

Venus is the “love” planet, representing how you give and receive love and affection, as well as what you find aesthetically appealing. Venus also rules “money” as in earning potential and income, as in how you handle money, what you spend it on, and whether you’re attracting it to you or seeing it run through your fingers like water.

  • Relationship or just Potential?

    FionaBeck
    27 Oct 2014 | 9:26 am
    As the use of electronic forms of communication increases, so do the instances of ‘online’ relationships. What is disturbing is the amount of people who get drawn into this to the point that they see these interactions as actual relationships. They then come to me and ask questions such as: Is he seeing anyone else? When is he going to commit to me? Does he truly love me? A relationship requires face to face interaction. It doesn’t matter if you speak to this person on Skype for 5 hours every day, text one another every ten minutes when you are not on Skype, or that you have been doing…
  • Passive commitment phobia

    FionaBeck
    25 Oct 2014 | 8:05 am
    Much has been written about commitment phobia and most of us have encountered individuals who struggle with anything that starts to feel too much like a permanent attachment. I cover this issue HERE. But lets think about why some of us seem to always find ourselves attracted to that ‘unavailable’ energy and what it says about our own issues. The opposite to active commitment phobia is PASSIVE commitment phobia. This often describes the people who are drawn to the active commitment phobic energy, not because they enjoy it, but because as long as they are pursuing someone who is…

  • Do you need a Facebook Face-cation?

    FionaBeck
    17 Oct 2014 | 4:34 am
    My good friend Willow recently said that some people need to take a FACE-CATION. She was or course referring to social networking and the less-than-healthy aspects of it. Social networking sites give us access to information that would never have been available in the past. In some ways this is good. If someone is trying to deceive us then we can save ourselves a lot of time, energy and heartache by clicking a few buttons, checking a few Facebook profiles and gaining instant clarity on what is REALLY going on. Even when someone has a closed Facebook page, all they need is a profile picture,…
  • What is unconditional love?

    FionaBeck
    18 Jul 2014 | 12:14 pm
    If we quote the bible, Unconditional Love is described in 1 Corinthians 13: If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor…

  • 4 Alpha Male Body Language Hacks That Instantly Boost Your Attractiveness

    Patrick
    28 Oct 2014 | 5:44 am
    Do you wonder why some men get female attention and respect from other males more easily? Some men are attractive to both sexes just by how they carry themselves. I’m not talking about their hairstyle or whether or not they have a well-manicured beard or cut torso. They simply carry themselves in a way that females find irresistible and males appreciate. This type of man is called an alpha male. Some years ago I went to meet my college friend, Sean, who was quite popular with the ladies. As I approached our meeting place, I saw him standing in the distance and I thought: “He looks…
  • How to Gain Confidence With Women

    Patrick
    15 Oct 2014 | 4:18 am
    Confidence is probably the most sexually attractive trait you can have. Confident men aren’t afraid of offending other people. They do and say what they want because their opinion of themselves is more important to them than the opinions of others. How do you express your confidence? Where does social confidence come from? Basically, confidence is learned competence. So once you become competent in social situations, you will feel comfortable talking to everyone. After you have made an effort to flirt with more women you will get better at it. Not only because you are developing your social…

    We are living in the world of rush and high demands, where everybody is trying to fit in as much as they can in the given short period of time. There is no pitying the weak. An episode of improper scattered attention or minor laziness may cost us a lot.

  • 8 Things That are Killing Your Motivation

    16 Jul 2014 | 6:23 am
    As a wise man once said, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” Motivation is what pushes people to continue working hard through tough times in order to get to the other side of success. The fact that Zig Ziglar said motivation is like bathing, shows that it’s something that’s difficult to maintain. It’s not just a case of getting yourself motivated once and then you’re motivated for life. There are a lot of things that can kill even the strongest willed man’s…
  • How to Lucid Dream Tonight – 8 Ways To Hack Your Sleep

    Do you ever wonder what it would be like to control your mind and influence your dreams? To experience things during sleep that you’re afraid of or unable to in real life, like kissing your favorite actress, flying, being a hero, or simply evaluating different solutions to your real life problems? Maybe you just want to remember your dreams better? It’s understandable if you do. Assuming you sleep 8 hours every night, you’ll spend a third of your life sleeping! Wouldn’t it be great if you were aware of how your brain uses this time and knew how to control the process to experience…

  • Your Turn: Is It My Fault I'm Single?

    Boundless Community
    31 Oct 2014 | 4:47 am
    by Charity Edwards I rounded the corner of 2014 and stared at my looming 31st birthday — yet another birthday and Valentine’s Day without a boyfriend. I wanted a Valentine this year, but I was not surprised as the day neared again with only the prospect of a call from my dad and a card from my roommate. I used to have so many “deal-breakers” when it came to men. He has blonde hair? He’s out. His last name is weird? He’s out. He doesn’t agree with me on some minor theological point? He’s out. I also used to believe that something must be…

    Last week, I responded to one of the questions I get asked most about dating and marriage ("Tall Women and Short Men"). This week, I’ll answer the second question. "I have a chronic illness. It is fair for me to date and desire marriage?" If you've followed my health struggles over the past year, this question is a fitting one to ask me. I have a mild autoimmune disease and nine food allergies. They aren't little ones either; my allergies include dairy, eggs and soy. Plus, I don't eat gluten and am also allergic to rice, so eating out is a thing of the…

It is a song about self-love, opportunity, inspiration, and not conforming to everyone else’s ideals of who you should be or how you need to live your life. Being part of a twin flame relationship has not only taught me more about myself then I ever wanted to know, it has inspired me to look at everyone and everything else with a different lens.

    Even before I started going out with my current boyfriend, I had a personal set of rules of what kind of girlfriend I would be to the next guy. This revelation came soon after I broke up with my ex, who cheated on me and dumped me through email. I asked myself what I did wrong, and tried to look at my own mistakes from an outsider’s perspective. I came up with the rules for myself. I didn’t want to be a clingy girlfriend. That was a big one. I thought I was a pretty independent person until I started developing trust issues with my ex. So the new guy I was going to date, had to…

We went out for dinner and just snuggled the rest of the night; perfection, if you ask me. But I’m not here to gush and update on the progress of my relationship. Lately, I’ve come to a conclusion that I’m strongly starting to grow some resentment towards my boyfriend. And honestly, that word, “resentment”, is a lot scarier than “angry”,…

You’re dealing with a completely different person that’s not you. That person is a stranger.

    When you start a relationship with someone, you usually think about how much that person makes you happy, and how you want to make them happy too. And you start thinking about his family and his close friends, the people that mean most to him/her, and hoping that you’d get along with them. But then there’s the “x-factor” that comes along: the roommate.  My boyfriend’s roommate is probably also his closest friend. They have been living together for about 2 years, and they both like similar things. When I first met him, he was polite, and very nice, also giving…

    It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. I don’t know if it matters much anyway, since I’m not sure who’s really reading it. I’ve had a tough few weeks, so I haven’t felt like writing much. I guess the reality of things has set in more. I’ve been sullen, depressed, angry – really […]

    Part of the unraveling of any close relationship involves the detachment of extended family. All the in-laws, as well as out-laws, must be reconciled, emotionally, in the new, estranged relationship. This is a very difficult task. Families are forced to choose sides, no matter how amicable the break-up. Such is the problem with my father-in-law […]

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:20 pm
    There are only few phrases in the English language that have been known to irk me, and of late I have been giving considerable thought to one of them in particular. Sometimes this seemingly innocuous phrase is stamped firmly and unapologetically at the end of a sentence, sometimes it is offered up with an seemingly innocent shrug, and sometimes it doubles as an ‘access all areas’ back stage pass held up by an arrogant and pimply teenager attending their first ever concert. “I’m just saying” is the verbal equivalent of standing behind bullet proof glass while commentating on…

    Dear Aunty Elle, I have some concerns for a friend of mine who recently got engaged to her on again off again boyfriend. At coffee recently, she mentioned rather off-handedly that he chooses her outfits for her every day. She wakes up and voila – there they are all laid out right down to shoes and possibly socks. That might not be so bad if he hadn’t also made some incredibly sexist remarks about the way he views women and how he thinks they should behave (he doesn’t work mind you and is happy to be a kept man).  My friend is of higher than average intelligence but has never…

    Last week I tightly gripped my wine glass for a solid hour as I watched the season finale of The Bachelor. Not because I was waiting with baited breath to see which beauty the Bachelor would hand select to be his blushing bride (I suspected Sam had it in the bag). But because like most people in the village with nothing better to do on a Thursday evening, I don’t mind watching a good old fashioned spectacle (even if it was highly stylized and disguised as a modern day love story.) Thanks to some slap dash teasers I knew that the season finale would include a wedding proposal. That was…

    Have you ever suddenly thrown a ball towards somebody and yelled out “Catch!” ? At the risk of pulling a spurious statistic out of thin air – I dare say the chances of your target reaching out to catch the ball are extremely high. After all, not many people are willing to risk looking stupid because they have been hit by a ball.

      My partner and my mother have a very annoying trait in common. Whenever either one of them hop into my car, they each assume that my driving experience to date equates to the sum total of the hours they have ever been in a vehicle with me behind the wheel. Not unlike a parent teaching their teenager how to drive, if they aren’t pressed up into the passenger seat like an astronaut fighting aerodynamic drag as they break through the earth’s stratosphere, or clutching the door handle whimpering “Oh sweet baby Jesus!” they are pointing at other cars, other lanes, in other…

  • You know it’s time to Break Up When

    14 Oct 2014 | 10:41 am
    Knowing when it’s time to let go A break-up is never an easy experience. Whether a break up is one sided or a mutual decision, it is something that leaves you feeling very emotionally torn. You would think that if you are pretty much over someone and have had it with the relationship, it would be easy to just pick up and leave. Not so easy though, I’m afraid. This is because no matter what problems your relationship has experienced with this person, this is still someone you once felt completely head over heels crazy about at one point, not to mention all the time and emotions that were…
  • How to Charm Him Over

    5 Oct 2014 | 4:49 am
    How do we girls know when a guy likes us? No rocket science needed there! If a guy is into you, he will make that very known through his actions and behaviors. Men are visual creature- this we know. So to first reel them in, we must use physical bait.  That’s actually the easy part.  The real question is: How do you charm him over and keep him interested? After all, capturing their interest is one thing- keeping it is another. Like women, men also need more than just a good physical connection for them to stick around and grow attached to you. You’d be surprised to know that men really…

  • The Younger Man and Older Woman

    Alina
    5 Oct 2014 | 4:47 am
    Why Younger men are going after older women Today, the younger man-older woman relationship is nothing new. We see it happening more and more each day, yet at the same time- people still can’t stop talking about it, keeping it a taboo subject. Why is it that when the man is older nobody says much, but when the woman is the older one, it’s such a hot topic? I think a big part of it has to do with the fact that as a society, we have become accustomed to and trained to accept the idea of a man being considerably older than his female lover, so when we see an older woman going out with a…

I mean girls, really! We say we want a good man who is sweet, who will be attentive, who is goal driven, successful, has a good head on his shoulders and so on. Yet is this the man many of us find ourselves in the arms of? No! Unfortunately, too many of us are falling for flat out losers. Yes, I know it’s such a harsh word, but I’m just keeping it real.
