    … And How to STOP it! I really wish I did not have to bring this topic up in the first place, because this only means that enough intelligent women out there are falling for losers. 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. A man with no job (or who goes from job to job), no…

    And so the inevitable has come. At around 10 o’clock last night my gorgeous boyfriend of 3 years slipped away and lost his battle with cancer. He was heavily sedated and the nurses assured us he would’ve felt and known nothing.  But we felt and saw everything. And it was scary. And painful. As he got closer to the end his body warmed up, his hands became clammy, his pulse started racing in a last bid attempt to fight. His breathing became shallow and laboured, there was fluid in his chest that bubbled through each inhalation. He struggled to breathe for a few minutes and then he…

They believe that there is a chance that it is IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Restriction) because I am small. So at 4pm yesterday I had to head out to Richmond General Hospital for a Non-Stress Test and a Membrane Sweep, which is pretty much just as awful as it sounds. The non-Stress test is nothing really, you just lay down and they strap two monitors to you; one to…

Joe leaned over, gave her a kiss goodbye, and whispered in her ear: “Helen, call me home.” Just 28 hours later, Helen did. Joe Auer died at the age of 100.

    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…

    Wonderful, amazing guest post, by the wonderful amazing Melanie Bates.   I have an invitation for you.  But, first… Whether we realize it or not, our lives revolve around stories and have done so since our cave painting days. Picture it: Cave peeps hunkered down around a blazing fire situated in the middle of the dirt floor, gesticulating wildly about the day’s hunt while gnawing on cave lion drumsticks and wiping their greasy fingers on their loincloths.  The Shaman crouches alone in the corner capturing the story with images on the cave wall. We are a people who exists by story.

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. In hindsight, it’s pretty clear that was unwise.  I…

    Nora Femenia, Ph. D.

    Do you live with a partner playing mind games with you? Along the time you have been married, it takes some time to get used and be able to decipher the meaning under your husband’s verbal expressions…you can think you both are having a normal conversation, and then some expression throws you out of balance…and the meaning is not clear any longer to you. Has he promised to do the task now, or later? Or he means never? Why is he smirking when saying something negative? Why he uses vague words or leaves the answer unfinished when he is answering my questions? Why he goes into…

     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…

    You should know that my ego is huge. Really huge. Bigger than yours. It’s probably the biggest (and most handsome) ego out there. And that’s great, because I’m a writer. But it’s also terrible, because I’m a writer. Ego is something we’re taught to suppress. We’re trained from a young age that humility is a virtue to strive for, and ego will get us in trouble. Ego is the root of bad decisions, right? It blinds us to the truth by keeping our focus on our attributes and successes. The problem I have with this philosophy is that ego is inherently tied to self-confidence, and by…

    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…

    This week the CMBA “Weekly Words of Wisdom” topic is words and wisdom from friends. I can think of one great bit of advice I got from a man several decades older than I. Shortly before I got married, he said to me, and half a dozen other young men in the room: “If you treat a woman right, you will not be able to keep up with her in the bedroom.” He did not say this as a complaint – there was almost a wink as he shared. 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…
  • My Pastor Has More Sex Than Your Pastor!

    The Generous Husband
    19 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    I can just see my pastor, who reads the blog, spewing coffee on his iPhone as he reads the title of this post! You and my pastor can relax; I know nothing about his sex life, and would not share if I did. However, I do hope and pray he has a very good sex life. Does discussing sex and pastors in the same sentence paragraph blog post make you uncomfortable? Is it like thinking about your parents being sexual? Does thinking about God and sex at the same time have a similar affect? Do you avoid praying about your sex life because it just seems wrong? How did the church get so messed up about…

  • How I Pray for My Son’s Future Marriage

    Marie McKinney-Oates
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:31 am
    I know many parents that pray regularly for their children’s future spouses. 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…

    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…

      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.

    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…

    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,…

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!

    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,…

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. Slowly, I grew apart from some of my old friends, got closer to others, and made room to welcome new, like-minded…

    Dahlinks. That picture, above, that’s MY passport and MY bikini. I’m off on holiday, where there will be cocktails, fresh water to bathe in and at least one good-looking man who doesn’t want to have sex with me. I can’t fucking wait. My holiday does, of course, mean that I shan’t be posting here for a couple of weeks, which I’m sorry about – but not that sorry. If you find yourself missing me you might like to browse my archives for posts from last summer, or else, listen to Dizzie Rascal’s Holiday, which is my tune of the moment. I’ll try…

  • 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…
  • The Consciousness of Men

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    15 Sep 2014 | 3:58 am
    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…
  • Parenting with Soul

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    9 Aug 2014 | 3:01 pm
    Parenting with Soul is a book written about the power of beliefs and whether parents want to influence beliefs that create a life for a child based in love and joy rather than fear.  Examples of fear-based parenting are provided as the book reveals common beliefs that lead to worry and guilt in children that prevent them of realizing their full potential.  The book presents ways to develop upon the natural creativity and enthusiasm for life all children possess at birth.  Parenting with Soul asks parents and/or caregivers to assess their level of happiness as a determining factor in their…
  • Bullying and Fear

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    7 Jul 2014 | 5:19 am
    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…

The world messages are clear. The world is trying to convince is that the economy is on the brink of collapse.  Violence and danger are depicted center stage on the media playing in every home.  More and more families feel separated even those residing in intact family units as each become distracted by fear and worry leading them to find relief through virtual…

    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.

    Today is my 42nd birthday. I remember being a kid and thinking there was no way I’d live to be so old. I couldn’t even imagine how old I’d be at 30, let alone 42. Yet here I am. 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. I was about a year from moving out of the house and about four years from arriving in New York City,…

She was home for a few hours on Friday night to wash her laundry, flush some toilets (her camp is in the woods and those woods do not come with built in plumbing) and to watch ‘Orange is the New Black’ with the three girls who came home with her for the night. 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…

    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.

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

It is a wishy-washy sort of day where I have survived Monday and Tuesday, but I still have Thursday and Friday to go.

Mum: “Susie, sit up at the table!” Susie: “No!” ‘No’ seems to be so easy when we are young, like a reflex reaction. But as we get older, we learn that it is not polite or even right, to say no all the time.

  • 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,…

    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.

    When we think of commitment phobia we often imagine someone who runs away from relationships, marriage, love and any long term entanglement that can’t be dropped at a moments notice. But this is only HALF the story. The thing that many people fail to realise is that commitment phobics struggle with committing to ANYTHING and that includes STAYING AWAY. Many of us have experienced the hot / cold, and off/ on aspects of an unstable interaction but we fail to see that what we are actually dealing with is commitment phobia.

    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.

    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.

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?

How have your perspectives on life changed in just a single year? Have you learned things from God's Word that a year ago you'd never thought of?

    When most people think of Southern Baptist pastors, rapping usually isn't the first thing that comes to mind, but D.A. Horton shatters that expectation and many more with his outreach to urban areas that are similar to the ones in Kansas City, Missouri and Atlanta, where he grew up. In addition to using rap as a medium for teaching theology, Horton's work for the Southern Baptist North American Mission Board gives him the opportunity to disciple young Christians on how to live in a way that preaches the Gospel. In doing so, he encourages believers to break out of their comfort zones…

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.

    Small Space Living...Here in L.A., homes keep getting smaller, and rent prices keep going up. Is it like that where you live? Nowadays, urban-dwellers such as myself are willing to sacrifice living space for a good location. It's worth it to live near the beach, or walking-distance to a favorite little cafe and club, but it can be challenging to squeeze an entire life into a few hundred square feet, right? Well, challenging yes, but not impossible. Here are my top tips for living large in small spaces... and fore more ideas, check out my Small Space Style collection. 1. Use…

Patricia told me that if I did this it would bring us closer.(MIKE)What? That sounds eerily like what Angela told me. Ballroom dancing is sexy and will make us more complete.

    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,…

    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…

    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. In 1974 Bill Oncken and Donald L Wass wrote what eventually became the Harvard Business Reviews second best selling re-printed article ever – Management Time: Who’s got the monkey?

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…

    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…
