"I Can't Stand Dating"

I started to fear deep-down that my serious lack of dating finesse meant I was destined to be alone. And that devastated me, because I really want to get married some day. I want a husband, kids, the big family I never had. And for a time, I began to force it. I went out actively looking for love, going on dates with guys I knew it would never work out with, and then getting upset when it didn't. Lately, I've taken a step back. After careful thought and a little divine inspiration, I finally came to a conclusion: That I'm just not cut out for dating as we've come to know it today. And I think I've been building up to this revelation for a while now.

5 Fairy Tales You Shouldn't Believe About Love

As yet another celebrity marriage bites the dust, one wonders if these two actually talked about the realities of the future more than the endorsements for the wedding ceremony.

Do Looks Matter?

Looks. It's one of the most interesting and controversial topics related to relationships. You have those individuals who say looks are very important and you have those who say looks aren't important because "it's what is on the inside that matters." So, who is right? If I have to pick, I'm going to side with those who say that looks are important. But before you start calling me a chauvinistic pig who only cares about how hot a woman is, hear me out.

Jennifers Story: Jennifer took a few years after her divorce to work up the nerve to start dating again. When she did, her first dates were complete disasters. And they only got worse from there.

How to Size Someone Up For the Long Run

When we meet someone new, we immediately form a tentative picture of his or her personality. We generate this first impression in a matter of seconds, because we need it to guide our initial give and take. Our amazing ability to rapidly size people up works so well that we continue to rely on it as we get to know the person better. In doing so, we keep building a more elaborate intuitive impression—an impression that we rarely bother to consciously examine.

5 Tips For A Smooth Split

You know the time has come. He just isn't the one for you and you know you're going to break his heart. He's been swooning over you for months and as much as you like hanging out with him, in the end, he simply doesn't rock your boat. The excitement you felt when you first starting going out left some time ago. He's been pressuring you for more time and more commitment but you simply resist. It's gotten to the point when you start to avoid his phone calls and are easily annoyed with his anxious requests.

When Is It Time to Break up

It might be one of the hardest and most important questions of a lifetime. When is it time to call it quits on a relationship? I get asked that question regularly and most of the time, by the time that question is on the table, a break up is imminent. However, with break ups and in life, timing is everything and getting that timing right is the difference between feeling good about what you did or lamenting the “could have beens” for years to come.

Kim Kardashian, I'm Worried About You

Dear Kim, You don't know me and I don't know you, but I felt compelled to write you this letter. I am a marriage therapist, and though you haven't asked for my input, I'd like to give it to you as a wedding gift. There's been a lot of buzz about your wedding. Kudos to you on both counts, by the way: one, from the glimpses I got flipping through the channels past ET and walking my cart through the grocery store, it looked beautiful. Of course with several million dollars worth of wedding contributions, it would be hard to screw that up!

Why Can't He Perform? Understanding Erectile Dysfunction

Picture this: You're in the middle of a fierce makeout session and reach down to grab what you expect will be a hard, throbbing erection. Instead, your hand is met with a disappointingly soft penis. Or maybe he's got an erection now, but loses it before you can actually get busy. Sure, what goes up must—eventually—come down, but so soon? Your first thought is probably, "Why can't he get it up? Isn't he attracted to me?"
