    I just discovered this site by googling "troubled marriage message board." There is really so much to say that I have no idea where to begin. Hubby and I have been married for 6 years, together for 8. I am 36, he is 38. We have a 3 year daughter. I feel like we've been on a long, slow decline for years and we've reached a point where we should probably just move on separately. In fact, if it wasn't for our daughter, I'm confident that we wouldn't be together anymore. While I don't believe anyone should stayed married purely for the sake of the kids, I do think we owe it to her to do…

Or maybe the ones who leave are supposed to just feel fine and not need any help with it. Not me! :( I'm especially frustrated because I can be having such a nice time with my friends and my kids and totally enjoying being single and the new life I'm building and then ex will do something that makes me so, so…

    And therefore, your primary role should be a wife? Not quite the same. Your primary role and your primary relationship are separate. Sometimes they are in sync, sometimes they aren’t. And it’s okay either ways. And therein lies the confusion. Hear me out. Roles are constantly in flux and many women forget that we are concurrently a mother, a wife, a daughter, a friend etc. Roles are not exclusive. It doesn’t mean that because you are more of a mother at this stage of your life now, you are no longer a daughter or a friend. Roles change from year to year, from month to month,…

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. Let me explain. The mind always believes what the mind tells itself is true. Therefore, if our mind tells us that quitting is hard, it will be hard. And since our mind strives…

    What does healthy growing up look like in marriage? There are two challenges or dilemmas that have major roles in relationships. 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…

    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…

    Do you live with a partner playing mind games with you?

     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…

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).

    Do you regularly read and/or study the Bible with your wife? I know some men are uncomfortable discussing spiritual matters, sometimes especially so with their wife. It is a deeply private thing for many of us, perhaps even more private than our sexuality. Yet, much like our sexuality, our view of and experience with God is a deeply foundational part of who we are. If we hide the deepest parts of ourselves, how can our wife know us? If you have limited discussion of the Bible and God with your bride, I encourage you to make a change. Start with something easy and build from there.

Beyond that, I got very little decent marriage or sex advice from friends. I got plenty of advice, but it was poor to horrible. In part, this…

      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…

  • 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,…

    Fall is in the air, and it’s my favorite season for many reasons: I love the color God puts on display, I love the cooler weather after a hot summer, and I love the longer evenings to enjoy candlelight dinners.

    When the desire to become a homeowner latches onto your heart, it’s all too easy to lose your mind and ignore your budget. Even on our most recent adventure—our fifth time around—my husband and I had difficulty keeping our priorities in the forefront. It becomes even tougher when friends and family members are encouraging you to buy because It’s the same/a little more/a little less than renting! and You won’t be throwing your money away every month! Whatever the source, that temptation can be hard to resist. However, if you are willing to follow a simple formula,…

    CREATIVE CONFLICT RESOLUTIONS

  • The Abusive Relationship as a Lesson in Resilience?

    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:…

      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…

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.

I know that you can be wishing to have the key, not only to endure, and be a survivor…but to learn new skills and use them to push your personal development forward? Isn’t it too much to ask? Well, I think that we choose the circumstances of this life, because all are part of a learning plan as humans we need to go through. Somehow we get into relationships that can be happy ones, but mostly they are designed to teach us something we badly…

    Getting your daughter to shave her legs is not an automatic task to think of when going over your mental list of things to do to get her ready for high school.  Many girls may have shaved their legs long before this point, but I’m one of those mom’s who has a daughter that could care less about her hairy legs so I had to take it upon myself to let her know it was time.  Either way, at some point in their lives, every girl must shave her legs for the first time.Shaving is something I do as a mindless act in the shower, so in gearing up for my tutorial I started thinking more…

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.

    There are many myths and stereotypes when it comes to dating asian guys. Some are completely outlandish and some are, well, a little more spot on. Multiple articles and studies discuss how cultural stereotypes of Asian men may make them less attractive to women of all races, including Asians. In the book Freakonomics, one study showed that single Asians (male)  had to make $247,000 more annually to receive the same response rate as White men on online dating sites. Ouch.

As I grew older and reached a different stage in my life, my interests started to change. I became a lot clearer of the type of human I wanted to be and the values that I stood for.

    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…

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.

    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…

Sue frequently planned holiday parties and was known for bringing treats for all departmental employees to enjoy – just because.

    Or, at least the end of romantic comedies. Tom Hardy is one of my favorite actors. I can’t say it’s because I have loved all of his movies, although his Bane character in “The Dark Knight Rises” made me fall in love with the Batman franchise all over again and his new role in “The Drop” is on my must-see films of the fall season. Now that I think of it, I have seen a lot of Tom Hardy movies and give high “Hardy Ups” to “Black Hawk Down” (even though I didn’t love the movie, overall) and Layer Cake (again, the movie was okay, but Tom, oh, Tom) and “Tinker Tailor Soldier…

I was too young to have any real memories of that flight, but I do have pictures of my mom and I standing outside of the airport in San Diego, waiting to go inside where I would be passed off from my mom to a flight attendant, stewardess way back then in 1975, for the flight to Hobby Airport in Houston, TX. I must have flown twenty more times by myself before long distance driving became my family’s preferred mode of travel. I always thought it was because my mom liked road trips, but after reading “The Skies Belong to Us” by Brendan I.

I’m not only 42, but I’m happier each year than the last and that counts for just about everything. When my mom turned 42 she had two daughters – me, a 15 year old, and my sister, a 5 year old. She was battling some of her worst depression and had been in and out of mental hospitals over the years.

With A, her three friends, me, Britney the Wonder Cat and Chloe the Super Bunny, there were seven women in the house at once. I’d say it was too loud, or too many people or too something, but…

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).

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…

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.

For those of you who are wondering, yes, I gave my job a very formal two-week notice of my departure.

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 enters Libra on September 29, 2014 at irgo on September 5, 2014 at 20:52 UT (8:52pm ET). 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 in Virgo — Sept 5, 2014 — Sept 29, 2014

    Melodie
    4 Sep 2014 | 11:06 pm
    Venus enters Virgo on September 5, 2014 at 07:23 UT (3:23 am EDT). Venus is said to be debilitated in Virgo, as it is the sign opposite Venus’ natural Exaltation, Pisces. 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 Virgo, where the naturally romantic, self-indulgent, partnership-oriented archetype struggles to express itself through the analytical, perfectionistic, service-oriented Virgo filter. Even so, there are a lot…

    Venus enters Leo on August 12, 2014 at UT 07:23 UT (3:23 am EDT). 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. By transit, Venus brings emphasis to these areas of your life — for better or worse, depending on the sign, house placement and relationship the transit forms…

    Venus enters Cancer on July 18, 2014 at 14:06 UT (10:06 am EDT). Venus in Cancer natives are known for being sensitive, affectionate and loving. This is a very feminine archetype. Even the strongest, most independent and assertive Venus in Cancer people — both male and female — are apt to express themselves in traditionally feminine ways, such as nurturing, caring for and comforting others. When it comes to relationships, they tend to mother their partners as well. They may be passive or indirect in the early stages, but this is because they have a lot of fears — mostly…

    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,…

    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…

    Do healthy long term relationships evade you? Does it feel as if everyone you know seems to be able to find love and commitment while you hop from one un-satisfactory relationship to the next? Do you keep telling yourself that you just need to find the ‘right one’? Have you ever considered that in order to find the ‘right one’ you also need to BE the ‘right one’? Here is a list of ten things to consider when seeking love. 1) Pay close attention to someones words and actions. Do they deliver on promises or is it all talk and no action? 2) Just because you…

There are many sites to choose from and no reason why you can’t join several, but what are the hidden pitfalls of online dating? 1) Catfish Profiles. Any dating sites that requires payment to access all of its features needs to give you an INCENTIVE to pay for this access. You may find that you can browse all the profiles free of charge, but if you want to exchange email with another member then its time to pay for a membership. At a glance, this seems reasonable.

  • 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…

    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…

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!

    Want to make a girl cringe? It’s easy: Invite her out; make sure she’s aware that, when it comes to seeing her, your schedule is absolutely flexible. Look deeply into her eyes, and shower her with compliments like she’s the most amazing thing in the world. For added effect, tell her you feel as if you’re falling in love and want to be with her forever. Don’t forget to change all of your opinions to suit hers. Sounds crazy, right? Yep, but that’s what most guys are doing, while still wondering why the woman of their dreams isn’t falling for them. Hint: Being nicer, won’t make…

    Since I've been married, there are a few questions people have started asking me about dating. A few even came up during Pursuit 2014. Here is the first of two common questions people ask me about dating and marriage. I'll write about the second one next week. "I couldn't help but notice your husband is shorter than you." This one doesn't really come in question form. It's stated more as an observation with an implied question behind it of, "How do you handle that?"

    by Lakeisha Blake I am 27 years old. Single. Never been kissed. Not even close. (Well that’s not true. In 4th grade, my crush tried to kiss me, but I got scared and pushed him away). If you had asked me when I was 15 years old what I thought about a woman who was 27, single, and had never been kissed, I would have definitely commented on how pitiful her life must be. Fast forward 12 years and I am that woman. Back then, I thought that the one thing missing in my life was a boyfriend. I dreamed incessantly about being pursued by a boy, about being kissed, about what it would feel like to…

    Last month two of my very good friends got engaged. It’s so fun to celebrate with them as they see the fulfillment of years of prayers being answered. I started thinking about all of the weddings I’ve attended since college and actually made a list. In the past 13 years, I’ve been to 32 weddings! You know what they say: 32 times a guest of the bride but never the bride ... or something like that. I went to the vast majority of those weddings as a single gal and never actually had a plus one. I celebrated my friends who had found love, while wondering if I ever would. Some…

    When I was in my early 20s, just out of university, I had three questions at the forefront of my mind: (1) What should I do with my life? (2) Who should I marry? and (3) How does God fit into everything? Eventually I had to realize that I had the priority order around a bit, that God was the center of my very being and that I should choose both my wife and work to bring Him maximum glory.  However, that still left me with a bit of a quandary: With all the opportunities that we have in this day and age, what was God calling me to do?

They may be in a marriage, long term relationship, or in any type of relationship in which their love life is starting to take a dip. Or maybe it was never that great in the first place?

Whether that view is based on our actual situation or one we desire, we can treasure not just their content but the beauty of their construction. They can also inspire us. And so it is with these words by Pablo Neruda. This is the way love can be… “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand…

You lie face up on a flat, elevated surface such as a bed, desk or table top with your hips perched on the very edge. Raise your legs straight up in the air, then have your partner grab your ankles. He extends his arms out to his sides, and as your legs are spread-eagle, he enters you while standing. Next, he starts alternately crossing and spreading your legs like scissors, opening and closing as he thrusts. This…

    The very word “chivalry” evokes thoughts of Medieval knights and movies of that age in which the behaviour of men towards women was marked by great respect and affectation. Unfortunately, such behaviour seems as ancient as that distant time, yet chivalry is still one of the strongest aspects in how men and women demonstrate their respect towards the other. For men of today, demonstrating a chivalrous attitude through simple expressions of behavior can go a long way towards furthering a relationship. In fact, it is one of the great visual cues that women recognise in men their respect for…

    Lola
    5 Oct 2014 | 2:09 pm
    Happy Sunday my friends. I received a couple of emails this week from people struggling with understanding their own Twin Flame experience and asking for advice. While I always preface my replies by saying I am “no expert”, I also started this blog to offer support and encouragement to others, and that I will always do. My conversations with my new friends brought up two topics for discussion: Acceptance and Mediocrity. There are two things that you MUST learn to accept when you are going through a Twin Flame union, or any relationship for that matter. 1. Never accept or allow anyone,…

    Everybody who is dealing with a Twin Flame connection wants to know how you can not only survive, but make it through where you find peace and happiness. The most important thing I want you to know is: IT CAN BE DONE. This video covers some of the ‘darker’ elements of energy and NOT so divine intervention sometimes experienced while working through a genuine OR non genuine Twin Flame Union. These may include the shadow aspect, the opposite polarities,(light and dark) entities, past life attachments, negative thought forms, and false twins. Love & LightLoLa…

Although I have learned to use mantras and meditation during my Twin Flame journey to calm my mind and expand my awareness, this is important for everyone – no matter what journey you are on in life. We all have issues, and we always will. For some just the commute to work alone – or even work itself is enough to drive you insane. For others it may be financial woes,…

    July has been a blur of a month, and some great things have been occurring as well as some challenging circumstances and continued emotional upheavals. I am continually working hard on learning more about the twin flame spiritual path so that I can grow to help more people as well as embarking on a new intuitive journey.

    So to continue on with the topic at the moment of self-love, I am sharing in this post my favorite song at the moment. 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. We tend to get tunnel vision – like a horse with blinders on. Sometimes we do it because we were taught that way, and sometimes…

    Part of the unraveling of any close relationship involves the detachment of extended family.

Families are forced to choose sides, no matter how amicable the break-up. Such is the problem with my father-in-law […]

    7 Oct 2014 | 9:21 pm
    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.

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…

It was only as I drew nearer to them that I could see that the man was attempting to take a photo of the woman – from just behind her. The woman would occasionally turn around to scrutinise the freshly captured shot only to shake her head in frustration before assuming her…

But similar to a toddler who enjoys the flashing lights and whirling noises replete throughout an episode of Dora the Explorer I just like to watch it for the seemingly never ending series toy car crashes and cry out “Boom!” “BOOM”“Look LOOOOOOK!”…

  • You know it’s time to Break Up When

    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 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…

    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…
