    Everyone has post-breakup questions, whether it’s questions about moving on or looking back at your past relationship. Are you asking the right ones? By Danielle Anne Suleik People find it difficult to let go after a break up because they don’t have the means or information necessary to do so. They wander about, living their lives, thinking that their situation is as good as it gets. They even go so far as to delude themselves into thinking that they believe statements like, “It’s not the end of the world. You’ll get over it. Someday it will get better.” The truth is that it will,…

    Thoughts on Life and Love Thoughts on Life and Love - 10 Facts about phobias and fears   1) Most fears are learned except for a few fears such as the fear of falling, the fear of loud noises and the fear of objects moving towards us. In evolutionary terms, this makes sense. Early humans were nowhere near as equipped to deal with danger as we are now — so a wild animal or a person we don’t know approaching us could be a sign of potential danger. 2) Individuals with […] 10 Facts about phobias Mandy Kloppers.

    27 Feb 2015 | 5:40 am
    Rejected by a person you like? Just "shake it off" and move on, as music star Taylor Swift says. But while that might work for many people, it may not be so easy for those with untreated depression, a new brain study finds. The pain of social rejection lasts longer for them -- and their brain cells release less of a natural pain and stress-reducing chemical called natural opioids.

    Which characteristics do young adults value in a potential partner for long-term relationships? A new study reveals that, besides friendliness, intelligence and a sense of humor, playfulness is also important – regardless of gender. Playful people also deem humor, a fun tendency, a laid-back attitude and creativity more important in partners than their non-playful counterparts.

  • Perfect Love

    Spirit Moments
    28 Feb 2015 | 8:29 am
    One of the thrills there is in loving is the give and take in the relationship. It is such a pleasure to be able to give and do things for a loved one. And there is even greater pleasure when that giving is reciprocated by a loved one. But the essence of love is not really in the reciprocity. Can I keep on loving even if my love is unrequited? Can I keep on giving even when I receive nothing in return? If love were merely a question of quid-pro-quo, isn’t love then simply reduced into a mere commercial exchange or a business transaction? I think of a mother and her love. She never…

    I edited my poem Sounds Of Happiness. This is an autobiographical poem about my current relationship. The poem is about all the little things I love about my partner. I changed the title to The Sounds Of Happiness. I changed the words I used a few times because I found a better way to say something or because I corrected a spelling or typing error. I cut the final stanza completely. SOUNDS OF HAPPINESS Listening to you breathing. The crackle as your chest rises and falls. The dream mutters. The low hum of your snoring, increasing in volume as you twist and turn beside me. The loud,…

    Do you ever shush your husband? I got into the practice of doing this many years ago and it made a huge difference for us. I was reminded of this after I came across a delightful blog post. He related a fight with his wife: Quote: During the trip I thought long and hard about how I had forgotten my own advice about being open and flexible to her will and showing the love and reverence that I always felt by being calm and ready to change direction when she wanted me to. I thought about how I could better prevent this type of thing from continuing to happen, and I remembered something I had…

    Hi everyone. This is my first post here and I'm hoping you can give me perspective on something that has been troubling to me. While I've had long-term, serious relationships, I've never married. I actually rejected a marriage proposal b/c I didn't believe I was mature enough for marriage and I didn't think marriage was right for that relationship. I was recently told, by someone who has been married and divorced 3x, and is currently single, that I don't know anything about commitment. How can someone who has broken a commitment three times claim superiority on this topic? I don't think…

    Yes it is true… first dates are really hard to go through and a lot end up before they can even start. Below are the top five important things to remember when going out for the first date. Always have a listening ear to your date. Listen to what they say, not hearing them actually but by paying attention to what they really say so you will know more about them. 1. Be sure to say thanks if he does something nice to you. 2. Be honest to him as much as possible. If you want to be just friends with him and don’t want to push it to another level, say it to him. The guy may usually don’t…

My wife and I have 2 grown daughters, and a very mature 11 year old son and as some of you already know, at least those who follow me on Facebook, we have a baby on the way.  We call him/her “Roo”. It just seems better than “it”. We don’t know if it is a boy or a girl at this point, so we lovingly refer to the baby as “Roo”. Just like a baby roo in its mothers pouch.

    There once lived a girl With a head full of curls, Once nice, naive, and neat, Turned out to be a compulsive cheat. In love she bravely fell, But never cured was her curse from hell. Five marriages ended in divorce, Still she felt no remorse. Proudly she marched on, With her whiskey and her bong. On the eve of her 40th year, Singlehood she could no longer bear. A ring and dress she bought, Along with flowers and silicone breasts, To commence a marriage with herself. Men and women she still screwed, But all the same her marriage thrived. Hence the moral of this glorious tale is that the one…

Although dangerous, I would assume most educated people (i.e. you reading this right now) understand the benefits of regular exercise. Primarily, it’s good for you but I won’t bore you with all the stats and details on this fact. Did you also know that regular exercise can be an integral part of a long lasting, happy marriage as well? There is something to be said about taking care of yourself.

  • Focus on the how not the what

    23 Feb 2015 | 9:42 am
    What is it that creates the intensity in certain conversations with your spouse? What moves a conversation between two people from the issue at hand into personal meltdown? Emotional reactivity. But this isn’t all bad, emotional reactivity also turns out to be nature’s way of informing us of where we are on the path of emotional maturity (another way of thinking about growing up and differentiation). One of the measuring tools for getting clear about how much growing up you have to do is time to reactivity – how quickly do you lose it? How easy is it to push your buttons?

    Relationships are actually pretty easy. I didn’t always believe this. In fact, I used to believe relationships are hard work. I’ve written these very words many times. You’ve probably even heard this phrase before. It is often stated as a Truism in our society, and while I understand the sentiment … I’ve reached a point where I no longer buy it. I do believe that relationships involve work, but hard work? I’m not so sure. I understand that intimacy in marriage challenges us in unique and specific ways, this is what makes marriage the people-growing machine it…
  • The Intentional Married Life

    Corey
    12 Feb 2015 | 5:35 am
    Many of us are asleep at the wheel. We follow routine and schedules and patterns we’ve created and refined over the years. We are going through the motions, doing things in life and relationship with little forethought. Contrast this with the idea of an intentional life: everything is done with consciousness, fulfilling a core value (compassion, love, serving, to name a few). It’s true that many things we do have some sort of intent — I wash the dishes because I don’t want a messy house; I drive my kids to school because they need to learn. But after repeating these actions every…

Nice Guys are often wimps. In fact, Nice Guys tend to play the wimpy victim role very well. You can hear it in what they say to themselves and others: “It’s just not fair.” “How come she always gets her way?” “If they would just …” The Nice Guy paradigm begins in childhood as a survival mechanism.

By Danielle Anne Suleik People find it difficult to let go after a break up because they don’t have the means or information necessary to do so.

  • The REAL Need Behind Sex

    The Generous Husband
    28 Feb 2015 | 12:01 am
    On Thursday, I wrote about the real needs behind unreasonable desires. This is a common issue in sexual desire, especially for men. I am NOT suggesting sex isn’t a valid need. God gave us a sex drive, making it a God approved need. However, we can tack all kinds of other things onto our sexuality, making our desire unreasonable and impossible for any women to satisfy. Looking back, I can see I did this. I didn’t see it initially because the sex we were having fell far short of what any 20 something man needs. I knew it was not sufficient, so I blamed all my frustration on her…
  • Friday Flashback: When She Doesn’t Think She’s Worth It

    The Generous Husband
    27 Feb 2015 | 12:01 am
    I used to end posts with “She’s worth it”. I had some ask, “What should I do if she doesn’t think she’s worth it?” This is all too common in a world where women are devalued, or valued for how they look or what they “put out”.  If your wife really feels she’s “worth it”, she’s in the minority. To see herself as having value, your wife will need to see herself differently. You can’t force the change, but you can nudge her in the right direction by what you say and do. Telling her she’s important,…
  • The REAL Need

    The Generous Husband
    26 Feb 2015 | 12:01 am
    Yesterday when I talked about finding out what your wife wants and needs so you can give her those things, I could hear the protests. “She wants me to make a million dollars.” “She wants me to think and act like a woman.” “She wants me to earn a good living and also be home all the time.” “She wants me to have no sex drive.” I hear all the time from men who find what their wife wants to be unreasonable and/or impossible. My guess is most of these men have not heard what their wife really wants. They have heard her words, but I don’t think…
  • No Fences Needed

    The Generous Husband
    25 Feb 2015 | 12:01 am
    A friend of ours from Australia said where she lived cattle ranchers didn’t put up fences. The area had no running or standing surface water to speak of, so ranchers dug a well and created the only watering hole around. The cattle ranged for food, but never went too far from the water. This has obvious applications for marriage. Rules and boundaries are good, but another way to keep your spouse from “wandering” is to be the best source of what she most wants and needs. Think about it, if your wife were all about quantity, quality, and variety of sex, would you ever even…
  • Routine Marriage Maintenance

    The Generous Husband
    24 Feb 2015 | 12:01 am
    For a while now, Andrew aka BudekSchmeisser of Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart, has been commenting on many of my posts. A couple of times he’s said he thinks couples should see a marriage counsellor every six months, just as you see a dentist twice a year. The more I think about it, the more I like it.  Think of it as routine marriage maintenance. You don’t do it because you have a problem, you do it to check for problems. An “expert” can see problems before they are big enough for you to be aware of them – when they are easy to fix. Additionally you can get a bit of a…

    Married Sex. The thought of it doesn’t exactly make you faint with excitement, does it? As newlyweds, we all thought we could avoid the boredom that everyone attributes to Married Sex: “Marriage is getting to do it whenever you want! Let the sexual revolution begin!” “Our sexual energy is electric. We will never fall into a rut. Ever.” “If you aren’t making magic in the bedroom something must be seriously wrong with you.” And all the married people were like: Because Married Sex can be, well, kind of boring. Be for real, if you could only…

      I met recently with a bride-to-be who wanted some insight on sexual intimacy in marriage. In a few short months, she’ll be joining her life with the man she loves. She had a few questions about sex, and she wanted me to shed some light on the realities (good and bad) of sex in marriage. I was her “go to” gal for this, because obviously I have few inhibitions talking about this sort of thing. (I know. You’re surprised, right?!) If I were to ask those of you who are married about sex in marriage, what would you say? I know for some of you, your responses would…

    Dustin
    10 Feb 2015 | 7:02 pm
    Your long distance engagement has led to a decision to move to a new city for your new spouse. While it’s certainly exciting, it’s also a little scary because you’re diving head first into the unknown. Yes, you’re doing it with an open mind and an open heart, but you’re also leaving behind your family, friends, and hometown conveniences, routines, and comforts. Only too often people fear the unknown without pausing to consider that with risk come rewards, and moving to a new place where you only know one person is an opportunity for personal growth. 7 Opportunities for Personal…

Not as something on your ever-growing list of Things You Need To Improve? Tom and I have recently gone through some events that have made us appreciate every minute we get to spend together. It is a privilege to have one person in this life with whom you can lavish your love. I’ve heard it said that many never know how much…
  • How to Craft the Perfect Love Letter for Valentine’s Day (in about 15 minutes)

    Dustin
    4 Feb 2015 | 9:30 am
    While Hallmark may tell you otherwise, there’s simply no better gift for your spouse than a romantic love letter. It makes your spouse feel special, and it expresses your emotions in a format that creates a very personal keepsake. Plus, if you’re on budget, you can craft an awesome letter for free! If you’re like me, the idea of writing a romantic letter to a loved one brings back memories of my high school days. I wrote a lot of “late night love letters” (as my Mom teasingly called them) during my teenage years, and I actually got pretty good at it.  At least…

    I’ll admit it, I’m really a giant child at heart!I delight in enjoying childish things with an alarming amount of exuberance. On Friday night, I stepped out my door to be assaulted by huge snowflakes falling. My response to this? To begin dancing in the middle of the sidewalk with my head tilted up, mouth open to catch as many as I could.So when I was asked to go to ‘Disney on Ice’ as an option for a date, I jumped at the chance, when many would have taken that opportunity to create a human-shaped hole through the nearest door.

    I’m shit at break-ups. Like most people, I’m selfish, bitter, resentful and insecure – especially when some cad has fucked me over. Like most people, magnanimity is not my gut reaction to the violent severance of once-tender bonds. I’ve been known to indulge in weeks or months of self-pity, break-up sex and desperate drunken text messages that can only wield disaster. Just the usual. Move along please, nothing new to see here. But it isn’t the initial distress that’s the worst thing about break-ups. The heartbreak and all that, that’s just part of life. We learn from it, we…

    Let’s face it, when I do eventually find a man who loves me back he’s not going to be hot like a Danish sperm donor. Have you seen them? All dreamy, creamy skin and fair hair and blue eyes that pierce you like a Californian sky. The descendants of Vikings. They’re wiry and muscular, or else built and outdoorsy; men who look like they could withstand a storm and erect a shelter from the debris after. And they’re so considerate as well; considered and considerate, articulate and kind. I think kindness is the main thing I want in a sperm donor, which is why no one I’ve slept with up…

  • Are you a Chaos Seeker?

    Jay Krunszyinsky
    18 Feb 2015 | 11:48 am
    Some people are extremely uncomfortable when everything is going well in their lives; they find tranquility boring and crave drama because that is what they are used to. This type of person will always have something to be angry about, even when they have made a major achievement (such as successfully completing a stay at a drug rehabilitation center). Instead of feeling happy about their progress, they crave chaotic situations; it is what they have grown up with, it is how they have survived all these years and it is enmeshed in the behavioral patterns they have grown accustomed to using.

    You and your significant other may have those moments when you both felt that you are from different planets as each discussion turned into a debate, or even more extreme, a heated battle. Most couples in relationships are first to assume or lay blame on the other partner when communication breaks down and the air gets chilly in the relationship. With this perspective, they remain frustrated and angered as each waits for the other to initiate an action to reconnect to the intimate and emotional level that was present prior to the communication breakdown.

For every question, I’ll give my advice in just a few sentences because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great that being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. I recently got back together with my girlfriend of four (off and on) years. We’ve been together three months, and at the beginning she told me she had cheated on me after a couple of weeks. I instantly forgave her because I know what it feels like to cheat and regret it. A month later she got drunk and got a little…

I get a good amount of attention from women when I do get out, but, without going into too much detail, I do not date a lot because of my crazy busy work/life circumstances. I was a late-bloomer and didn’t really start dating until this year, and I only got my first kiss last year at 20. I had a few chances to lose my virginity with different women I had been seeing, but, embarrassingly, nerves kept me from performing each time.

Of course, being a lover of all things tea, I didn’t need much persuasion to spend $25 on a tin of Daily Mizuba Matcha just so I could make a green tea cheesecake from scratch. Yes, the cheesecake is now just as expensive as one I might buy in a store, but that’s okay – I’ve told myself that this was a great buy so it is. In my dreams, I can eat as much green tea cheesecake as I want, but we don’t live in dream land, now do we? Nope. So it was time…

    “An idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup.” …..H.L. Mencken I’m an idealist. I’m also a realist. I’m not sure that Mencken had me in mind, but I do love roses and soup, just not together. Although, I would probably try it if there were hot peppers thrown in for good measure. When I decided that my blog needed a new look, I was forced to think about content. For years, all I wrote about was politics and love. In many ways, those two topics are the same thing – they bring out so much passion.

    11 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    I love my job. I love being employed. I hope that you have satisfying and meaningful work. This is not an essay for simplicity nor against having a job. This is a tribute to a friend giving up a great job for a great woman. Awww if you want, it’s true. It’s a risk. It’s a sacrifice. No job is “perfect”; hence without problems. No relationship is “perfect” nor problem-free. But, if you have the chance to build a lifelong love with someone while working a mundane job OR work a great job to return home lonely or to a contentious home, which would you…

I usually love my house, but when I see some of the marvelous modifications the designers and artisans create I wonder, “why not me too”? I wonder, why not me? Is it… Time? Money? Talent? Laziness? Low priority? And, that’s just my house. Those same questions apply to my level of fitness, my clutter, my incomplete projects and my unfulfilled dreams. If I settle for what I have – without working for what could be –…

    When we enter the workforce, we never want to be ‘that’ person: the one who got that job through their connection with the boss, or the employee who already has a romantic relationship with someone on staff. In these times, it can be hard to work with a clean slate. People can undermine your work, and meanwhile you are constantly trying to balance your personal and professional life. Have you ever asked yourself what the line between work and your personal life is? Social Media like Facebook has blurred this line more than ever, and we all must face the moment a colleague or…

We have personalities that excel in moments of introspection. This means we are able to achieve a lot. Ask any perfectionist or over achiever what their goals and ambitions are and many will have a ten step plan for getting there. Then there are those of us who excel in moments if intensity and pressure. We get our best work done at the last minute and the concept of a life without stress is a foreign to us.

The relationship I am in falls beneath my expectations of what a loving relationship should look like. I am alone (and it sucks). One of the most undervalued, yet affordable and equally available gift that you can give to your partner or friend is the gift of kindness.

  • Inner voice versus ego

    25 Feb 2015 | 5:40 am
    One the most common reasons that someone seeks psychic insight is when they sense that something is not quite right and they are hoping that a psychic reading can offer them insight and clarity. In many cases this can be incredibly helpful. Sometimes we ‘over think’ things and imagine problems where there are none. A psychic reading can then be reassuring and help us to make sense of the confusion we feel. However there are times when the reason we sensed that something was not quite right is because we are being deceived or mislead, and our inner voice is yelling at us to pay…

In some cases it be something as innocent as a third party, a ‘matchmaker’ trying to get two people together or help them smooth out issues. But sometimes it represents a love ‘triangle’ indicating that there may be three people in a relationship; you, your partner and the OTHER woman / man. So who is this third party and what do we need to know about her? Something that I encounter in my work from time to time is a…

If you do not love yourself FIRST then you set the precedent for everyone else to follow suit.

Statements like this make me really sad. The only thing a guy shows me with this opinion is that he still believes the same stupid doctrine that people believed 50 years ago. Back then men believed that women didn’t enjoy sex and that they didn’t have sexual fantasies, especially when those…

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.

Brian Ivie and Joshua Rogers Brian read an article titled “South Korean pastor tends an unwanted flock,” which told the story of Lee Jong-rak, a man who was rescuing unwanted babies with the help of a makeshift box he installed at his church in Seoul. Brian thought the story would make an intriguing documentary, so he tracked down Pastor Lee and asked if he could bring a film crew. Pastor Lee said he didn’t know anything about documentaries, but if Brian wanted,…

    According to recent studies, more than 50% of all married women cheat on their spouses.

    Do you remember the beginning of your marriage when you couldn’t wait to get off work and finish all your chores so you could see each other? That’s the power of being apart. Then, when you get together you don’t want silly issues to infect the time you have together so you both try a little harder and are on a little bit better behavior. If that sounds superficial to you, you couldn’t be more wrong. There is power in being apart, not just for your relationship together, but for your own mental health and well being.

    As you go through the feelings associated with infidelity, anger, sadness and an absolutely broken heart, it can be hard to imagine ever feeling normal again. Much less actually saving your marriage and healing it to the point where you feel good about it again. The pain is so deep it feels irreparable. It’s natural to guard your heart after an experience like that. When you get hurt, you tend to put up blocks to help avoid it happening again. In fact, when people divorce due to infidelity sadly, it’s not due to a lack of love, it’s due to fear of it happening again. Fear is the guiding…

  • Do You Deserve A Little Respect?

    Meetch
    25 Feb 2015 | 6:32 am
    It’s often said in the relationship circles that women “need” love and men “need” respect; whatever the hell that means. I’m not sure how that assumption came about or what statistics substantiate that claim, but I do know this, respect for most men is something that is demanded. If we don’t get it, we get defensive, indignant even. For some of us, it can alter our self-worth and esteem in our marriage. And those feelings can lead to feelings of inadequacy, contempt, and even resentment. As husbands, do we need respect? Necessarily no. Do we crave it?

At least not according to the convoluted meanings and contexts that populist thinkers and organizations try to push. What does it mean to be equal any way — that everything is split 50/50 in marriage, perfectly symmetrical, like an apple pie? There’s only one context in which I believe in equality; and it’s as a human being. I’m equally human relative to my wife (and to my fellow Homo sapiens). But I’m also superior to her in…
